Winter Golf – Preferred Lies

Just a small note from your Swing Doctor on the term “Preferred Lies”

During these Autumn & Winter months if you ball lands on the closely mown area’s I.e The Fairway, then you are allowed to what is called PICK, CLEAN AND PLACE, which will give you a preferred lie.

So when you’ve hit that great drive down the middle of the fairway (obviously after your golf lesson with the swing doc), you can mark your ball using a tee peg, lift it, clean it, then place back down on the fairway within 6 inches of its original spot as long as its no nearer the hole.

It’s important to take advantage of this rule, mainly because your ball will pick up a lot more mud on it and this will greatly effect the flight of the ball…

Plus finally a little extra advice make sure you keep your clubface, groves are clean to again help to keep your ball on the flight and direction you desire…

Enjoy your next game
