Are Your Clubs Right for You? G’day, Brett Ogle here. The technologies in Golf Clubs have changed a lot from the days when I first started playing golf with persimmon woods and blade irons. Now we have Titanium drivers as big as my old wooden tennis racquet as well as oversize irons, hybrid clubs and a plethora of wedges to choose from. The question I get asked a lot by golfers is; “Brett, what clubs should I use?” The reality is no one can truly tell you what clubs you need by just looking at you. You need to be properly fitted. This is true for all golfers, regardless of your ability or how much you want to spend. Whether it’s 300 bucks or $3000 on your next set, you need to get the clubs that best suit you at the price you’re happy to pay. This is where Drummond Golf can help you. They have a world first in computerised fitting; it’s called CLUBFIT and it’s exclusive to Drummond Golf. CLUBFIT takes all the guesswork out of buying a set of clubs and ensures you get the best clubs for you at the 2

price you want to pay. Best of all it’s FREE. Selected staff at every Drummond Golf stores are CLUBFIT trained so you can have complete confidence in what they do. There are a lot of fitting programs on the market, but most of them are based on one brand. The beauty of CLUBFIT is it allows you to choose from all the great brands that Drummond Golf stock. The information stored in CLUBFIT is supplied by the manufacturer. This guarantees that you receive the best available option(s) based on the manufacturers’ designs and the parameters of their “custom-build” programs. Not all golfers are made equal and don’t I know that. We all come in different shapes, sizes and abilities. That’s why all good manufacturers have a variety of styles of clubs to choose from. Not only do you need the right length, lie angle, grip size, shaft kick point, shaft flex and shaft weight, but also the style of head to best suit your game. Organise the configuration of your set to

suit your strengths; if you’re a better wood player, carry more woods or hybrid clubs; if your short game needs improving, consider carrying more wedges. And again this is where CLUBFIT and your friendly Drummond Golf staff member can help you to make the right decisions to get the best out of your game. Remember this, the most important thing when buying clubs is not the clubs, it’s YOU. At Drummond Golf with CLUBFIT, they’ll lift your game. Good golfing and hope to see you at our next Drummond Club golf day. Brett Ogle

2007 DRUMMOND GOLF & GOLF MAGAZINE NATIONAL FINAL Major Sponsors

VIC – HERITAGE GOLF & COUNTRY CLUB - THE HENLEY COURSE TUESDAY 27th NOVEMBER 2007 Our host venue for the 2007 National Final was the prestigious Heritage Golf & Country Club, located in the picturesque surrounds of Victoria’s Yarra Valley, complimented by the luxurious resort accommodation provided at The Sebel Heritage Yarra Valley. This year the National Final was played on the new “Henley Course” – one of two Championship Golf Courses at this premier golf resort. Opened in late 2006, the new Henley Course designed by Tony Cashmore, is a traditional links-style golf course unique in its design and contrast to the stadiumstyle St John Course. The Henley offers a challenging golfing experience and the ideal host venue for our 2007 National Final. This year the National Series invited 7 State Finalists representing VIC, NSW, QLD, WA, ACT, SA, and NT to compete for the title of 2007 National Champion. Each state finalist had won the “Overall Individual Stableford” division in their respective State Qualifying events earlier this year. We acknowledge and congratulate again our 2007 State Champions as follows. (Pictured left to right in the photo below): QLD Ken Belgrove Brookwater Golf Club 9/9/07 (Brett Ogle Drummond Golf Ambassador) SA Gavin Vonderwall Gawler Golf Club 31/8/07 ACT Anthony Lynch (front) Gold Creek Country Club 20/4/07 VIC Danny Torgersen (back) Woodlands Golf Club 30/10/07 NT Peter Rodgers Darwin RAAF 24/6/07 WA Neil Cuthbertson Joondalup Resort 21/10/07 NSW Peter Allen Magenta Shores 4/9/07

A pre-event dinner hosted by the Drummond Club Management Team (Lee, Sam and Anthony) with Brett Ogle and wife Rikki, kicked off the year-end celebrations together with our 7 State Finalists and their accompanying Family and Friends. Brett was in fine form as usual and a very pleasant night enjoyed by all! The DC Team ensuring all had an early night! On the morning of the event, Titleist/Cobra, Ping, Cleveland, Wilson and TaylorMade joined us on the Driving Range for players to enjoy a warm-up and opportunity to test-drive the latest range of Drivers and Flexiway provided complimentary teepacks. Out on course, Angostura provided refreshing drinks for all and there was a host of novelty competitions for players. The National Final included both an Individual and Team Stableford Competition for our final field of 135 players, whilst our 7 State Finalists competed for the grand prize of 2007 National Champion. Also joining us for the day’s competition were Drummond Golf Head Office Representatives, David Mattingly (Chairman), Ravi Abeyaratne (Director of Marketing) and Jamie Cooke (Director Product Purchasing), 4

together with many staff representing our local Victorian Drummond Golf stores Nunawading, Bendigo, Preston, Kew, Cheltenham, and Dandenong. At the completion of the round players returned for a sumptuous BBQ Buffet Lunch and our Yarra Valley Winery Partners -De Bortoli and Balgownie Estate Vineyards provided a complimentary wine-tasting during lunch and the Prize Presentations. We are pleased to announce our “2007 National Champion” is Peter Allen representing NSW. Peter played a terrific round with a final score of 45 points.

We wish to express our sincere appreciation to our Major Sponsors of the 2007 Event Series: Drummond Golf, Flexiway, Golf Magazine and Tee2Green Sureshot GPS, and also our supporting Club Partners and Suppliers including - Oakley, TaylorMade, Titleist/Cobra, Callaway, Cleveland, Powerbilt, Cougar, Ping, and Wilson, who have supported and participated in many of the events throughout the year.

DRUMMOND CLUB NATIONAL EVENT SERIES CHAMPION Name: Peter Allen Home Club: Waratah, NSW (in Newcastle) Current Handicap: 26, plays golf fortnightly Favourite Golf Courses: Cypress Lakes in the Hunter Valley, NSW & The Henley course at The Heritage, Vic Golfing Background: Started playing at about age 14 and played regularly until age 21 when I returned to study to complete the Building Foreman and Clerk of Works Post Trade Course. The best handicap that I achieved was 13.Then in 1990 I established my own business and while I continued to play basketball I didn’t have enough time to play golf. I was lucky to play in trade days twice a year. I got back into golf twelve months ago when a few of my friends who are also self employed in the building industry started to play on a Friday afternoon and invited me to join them. I got bitten by the golf bug again. Clubfit Experience: When I got back into golf 12 months ago I decided to buy a new driver and headed off to the Drummond store in Newcastle. I tried out a number of drivers and received terrific help from Chris Gaffney at the store. Within a couple of months I decided to purchase a complete set of new clubs. After the great service I received from Chris when I purchased the driver I went back to him when looking to purchase the new set. The clubfit experience is great. It really helps find the clubs that suit you and your game. The custom fit is important when you are tall and thin like me (188cm and 70kg) and hit the ball low. Local Drummond Golf Store: Kotara (Newcastle) Heritage experience: My wife and I decided to get away for a few days and enjoyed staying at The Heritage for the weekend prior to the final. Lee Midson made all our travel arrangements and all wet very smoothly. The accommodation and facilities were great and the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. I played the Henley course on the Sunday prior to the final and had only 28 points. I didn’t perform much better on the Monday, having 106 off the stick playing the St Johns course. Hence it was a real surprise to score 45 points in the final. The organisation of the final series was outstanding. The dinner held on the night before the final was very enjoyable with Brett Ogle in good form as usual. Everything went like clockwork on the day of the final. The other finalists were great company and we enjoyed quite a few drinks together in the afternoon and evening after the final. Final Words: I would encourage all Drummond Club members to get along to the golf days. They are well organised and held at quality courses. As well as a fun day out and the prizes are terrific

2008 Drummond Golf & Golf Magazine National Event Series Our 2008 National Event Series will kick-off in February 2008, and for the first time we will have a total of 8 State Finalists to represent all states of Australia (including Tasmania this year) to compete for the title of 2008 National Champion!

STATE F I N A L W R A P- U P WA – JOONDALUP RESORT – 21ST OCTOBER 2007 WA STATE A “sell-out” and capacity field of 140 players participated in our 2007 WA State Final held at the prestigious Joondalup Golf & Country Club – a Championship golf course, regarded as one of WA’s premier private golf resorts. Pre-event, players enjoyed product promotions by Flexiway, a free golf ball fitting and 2-ball sample pack courtesy of Titleist, and a Callaway Putting Competition prior to start. On-course, Oakley provided a display of the latest Oakley eyewear and golf shoe range. Fine weather conditions were enjoyed and the course was in excellent condition with immaculate “lightning fast greens” - a fitting stage for our final WA event for the 2007 series. All the Drummond Golf team members from Osborne Park and Cannington stores joined in the competition and fun on the day, with Wayne Tardrew dressing up for the occasion in a custom-made pair of “Pink Oakley” golf shoes. The “Best Dressed Team” was awarded to Steve Scott, Les Fuhri, Ryan Addison and Whitney Hiller - looking sharp in the very latest Oakley summer range – 10 points Team! The final Team Stableford scores saw 1st, 2nd, 3rd place tied on 54 points and the Individual Stableford Division closely contested with 1st and 2nd on 42 points, requiring a countback in both divisions. Congratulations to Neil Cuthberston, our 2007 WA State Champion and Winner of the Overall Individual Stableford Division – Score 42 points (on countback).

VIC – WOODLANDS GOLF CLUB - 30TH OCTOBER 2007 VIC STATE FINAL We returned once again to Woodlands Golf Club for our 2007 VIC State Final. Woodlands is one of Victoria’s oldest private clubs (celebrating 100 years) and has been the host venue for major tournaments such as the Victorian Open Championships. One the day, we enjoyed fine and sunny weather conditions, and the “Pin” positions set by Anthony certainly tested the skills of all. In the morning, players enjoyed a warm-up on the driving range with product promotions provided by Titliest/ Cobra, Cleveland, Ping & Powerbilt and Flexiway provided promotional tee-packs and caps as giveaways. A final field of 130 players then enjoyed a pre-event Buffet lunch followed by the competition round in the afternoon. Back in the Clubhouse at the completion of the round, Chris Fox from McLaren Vale III Associates sponsored complimentary glasses of wine and cheese plates to celebrate the release of their new 2006 “Four Play” (distributed exclusively to Drummond Club members) and their premium range of Squid Ink Shiraz. It was the perfect accompaniment after a hard day on the golf course! Congratulations to Danny Torgersen, our 2007 VIC State Champion and Winner of the Overall Individual Stableford Division - Score 38 points.

TESTIMONIALS To the senior management of Drummond Golf, I played yesterday at the Heritage in a Drummond Golf Day and I thank you for the opportunity. But, and a big But! Your Mr Brett Ogle was such a delightful representative of your organisation, the total enjoyment of the day was mainly due to this mans effort, his rapport with Golfers, his speaking at the end of the day and his general overall exuberance was enjoyed by all. What a credit he is to your organisation. Thank you again, Regards Keith Hughes Magenta Shores 4/9/07

•••••••••• Dear Lee, Remember that cold windy day at Magenta Shores where I won the lucky door prize. Well I took my husband Brian, there last week and the weather and golf and accommodation was fantastic, so we stayed an extra night. Everyone who played golf that day (Drummond Club Event - Magenta Shores 4/9/07) should do the same, it was that good. Can’t wait for the next Drummond Club Golf Day. See you there! Thanks once again, Carol Anthony

•••••••••• Hi Lee, I just wanted to let you know about my trip your Company helped me organise to the Gold Coast (29/10 – 4/11/07). The accommodation I stayed at was 1st class. The Acapulco Apartments are situated in a good spot on the Gold Coast and easy to get to other places. The golf courses I played on were great. I enjoyed playing all of them, even though I didn’t play too well, I still enjoyed playing the courses. (Robina Woods, The Colonial and Royal Pines Resort). I would not hesitate to tell other people who love golf, to use your Company to help them organise a golf trip like you did for me. Once again thank you for all you have done for me with the organising of my trips it makes them more enjoyable having good people like you and your company sorting out what my needs are. Regards, Craig Robinson

If you’ve decided it’s time to start planning a holiday with the Family or looking for a great winter escape, then QLD’s Sunshine Coast is the perfect destination. Renowned for its laid-back casual beach style, this stretch of pristine coastline offers several Championship Golf Courses (Noosa Springs Resort,Twin Waters, Club Pelican and The Hyatt Regency Coolum) plus an array of other sporting and leisure activities for all the Family to enjoy. You can keep the kids happy fishing, visiting attractions, canoeing or wandering the markets. Rivers, sheltered bays and surf beaches provide a variety of swimming spots. Factor in an indulgent massage for two, a quiet rainforest walk, or a romantic dinner in the mountains or by the sea. The Sunshine Coast is the perfect mix of coast and country and a great golfing getaway to relax and unwind with Family and Friends. The Sunshine Coast starts at it’s most southern point in Caloundra, just 1 hour’s drive north of Brisbane and extends to Cooloola, the gateway to Fraser Island. It takes in tranquil hinterland including the Glass House Mountains, Blackall Range, Noosa Hinterland and the Mary Valley; as well as more than 100 kilometres of beaches stretching through the coastal towns of Caloundra, Kawana, Mooloolaba, Maroochydore, Coolum Beach, Noosa and Rainbow Beach. For interstate visitors, access is easy via either Brisbane Airport (approx 75 mins) or the region’s own Sunshine Coast Airport centrally located on the Coast and which is serviced by 3 carriers – Jetstar,Virgin Blue and the new Tiger Airways. With over 300 days of sunshine year-round, the Sunshine Coast is a paradise for all golfers. Seductive sunsets, intoxicating views, sparkling waters, sundrenched beaches, stylish town centres and world-class golf courses — are all awaiting you on the Sunshine Coast. Hone your game under blue skies as you stroll through pockets of rainforest, past fresh and saltwater lakes and majestic stands of melaleucas. You will enjoy playing Championship Golf Courses designed by the World’s golfing greats, such as five-times British Open champion Peter Thomson, Australia’s own Greg Norman, Robert Trent Jones Jnr and worldrenowned golf course designer Mike Wolveridge, who have created magnificent courses to complement the Sunshine Coast’s natural beauty.

NOOSA SPRINGS RESORT At the Northern end of the Sunshine Coast, you’ll find the popular beach resort of Noosa Heads and its famous “Hastings Street”, where you can enjoy a great selection of top-class restaurants, bars and cafés and great shopping. Located just 5 minutes drive from Noosa Heads central, is the Noosa Springs Resort. A luxurious 5-Star Resort with 18-Hole golf course situated on a picturesque hillside overlooking the surrounding Noosa Heads National Park and Lake Weyba. We had the opportunity to visit Noosa Springs Resort earlier this year, when we held our 2nd QLD Drummond Club event for the 2007 season at the Resort and enjoyed the opportunity to experience the facilities first-hand. The first visual impression on arrival is the lush, tropical tree-lined driveway welcoming you to the Resort and you immediately feel you have arrived in a very special place. The ambience is casual elegance and the Resort’s facilities are world-class with superb accommodation, alfresco restaurant and bar areas, state-of-the-art gymnasium and a newly opened Spa Centre, with a Hyrdo Massage Pool, and Australia’s first and only “Flotation Pool”. Highly recommended for those in need of total rest and relaxation and some serious pampering!

HYATT REGENCY COOLUM Hyatt Regency Coolum is one of Australia’s finest all encompassing resort destinations. Providing superior accommodation and an unsurpassed range of facilities and activities, all set in a natural environment. Covering over one third of the resort grounds is the 72 par, 6300-metre, 18 hole golf course, designed by the renowned Robert Trent Jones Jnr. When taking on this Australian PGA Championship course, golfers will experience a unique blend of contrasting landscapes that depict Coolum, from the windswept holes adjoining the Pacific Ocean to the manicured fairways that drift through native bushland. Whether you’re a professional or a modest weekend player, Hyatt Regency Coolum offers players a challenge they will enjoy.

The Resort offers luxury 2 and 3-bedroom apartments with views over the golf course and are ideal for short or long stays. Each apartment comes with a fully equipped kitchen and modern appliances, 2 private balconies, King Size Beds, LCD TV, Cable Television and DVD/CD Players. The Apartments are spacious and ideal for Families and group golfing trips. Other resort facilities include 4 floodlit tennis courts and tennis coaching available. For dining options, you can enjoy dining in or exploring the array of restaurants and cafes located along “Hastings Street” Noosa Heads and the Noosa River. The Resort’s 18-Hole Championship Golf Course meanders along the shores of the tranquil Lake Weyba and is surrounded by the natural beauty of the Noosa National Park. Designed by leading golf architect Graham Papworth, this Par 72 course (6,189 metre) is rated as one of the best in Australia and is the only Championship course in Noosa Heads. Each hole is unique and will offer enjoyment for players of all levels. After a hard day on the golf course, you can then retreat to the comfort of the Resort and indulge in the many spa treatments available to excite your senses and sooth your body! The Spa at Noosa Springs has an extensive treatment menu, however their unique water therapy treatments are worth a special mention. I chose a Hyrdo Massage that contains purified water with under water jets that massage you from the soles of your feet, to the top of your head. If you include some time for the Steam Room too you will leave with an energised yet relaxed feeling – great therapy for tired bodies! The ultimate experience is the Spa’s Flotation Pool, which is the only one of its kind in Australia. Unlike usual float tanks, this pool with its beautiful domed starry ceiling and salt drenched waters allows you to float in total peace and privacy. You can also enjoy a “Couple’s Float” with your loved one – a great way to relax both body and mind!

The championship course is complemented with an extensive range of practice facilities including; the Golf Improvement Centre, a chipping green that offers a wide variety of shots with an adjoining practice bunker, a practice putting green and a 260 metre all-weather, floodlit driving range, so when the day is over and night falls, turn to the driving range for a practice hit. Golf Clinics are offered daily and the resort’s PGA Teaching Professionals are available for private lessons on the driving range, the chipping green or on the course. As well as the championship golf course, Hyatt Regency Coolum offers a range of other facilities including; the award winning Sun Spa, a private patrolled beach, nine sparkling swimming pools, a Tennis Centre, Camp Hyatt for children, a Creative Arts Centre and Resort Gallery.

Drummond Golf Continues it’s Support of Australian Golf 2007 MFS Australian Open Wrap Up Congratulations to Craig Parry who shot a final round of three under par 69 to claim his 23rd career victory and the 2007 MFS Australian Open at The Australian Golf Club in Sydney. The 41 year old veteran Australian golfer finished the tournament on 11 under par 277, to win by a shot from Nick O’Hern, Won Joon Lee and American Brandt Snedeker. This year’s event did not disappoint golf fans, with four days of excellent golf and the highly publicised par three 11th stadium hole, sponsored by Drummond Golf and Oakley. Following criticism from Robert Allenby, after being heckled at the Australian Masters, the Victorian got into the spirit of the stadium hole on the second day. As he approached the 11th green crowd, Allenby wore bright red earmuffs (see photo right) – a joke that was well received by the crowd. As an Official Sponsor, Drummond Golf is committed to furthering its support of Australian Golf and congratulates Golf Australia on the success of the 2007 MFS Australian Open.

Congratulations to Jarred Cole Congratulations to Drummond Club Member Jarred Cole, who was the lucky winner of The Definitive MFS Australian Open Golf Experience. Jarred from the Darlington Store in South Australia, and mate Shaun Grant were entertained at the Australian Open in VIP Hospitality at the 11th stadium hole.

Baffler DWS Utility It’s the kind of club that won’t just improve your game – it’ll change it completely.

Designed for players seeking an easy to hit alternative to long-irons. High trajectory, superior distance and forgiveness – this is a must have club for longer par 3’s.

iSeries Putters

The pursuit of enhanced feel with proven weighting properties resulted in the creation of the i-Series putters. The twopiece insert combines a urethane insert and face applique to produce a firm response with a soft feel.

Popular alignment models, including the Craz-E, are joined by the new ½ Craz-E and ½ Moon designs which feature increased MOI and easier alignment. Also available are the proven favorites, including the Anser and Zing models.

Thin, flexible and fast titanium clubface delivers higher COR. Superfast Steel 90 Shafts – Promotes more clubhead speed, more ball speed, more distance. Inverted Cone Technology – Proven to add more distance on miss-hits. Extra-large (oversized) clubhead and deep cavity, ultra-forgiving and easy to hit.

Marxman X-ACT Chipper A new short game option that utilises the same alignment technology found in Odyssey’s Marxman Putters. Designed to function like an Approach Putter, providing an easy-to-hit option that plays perfectly between a putter and a wedge for those tricky scoring shots around the greens.

Pilates for Golf by David Grech, Pilates Instructor, Golf Pilates Trainer Dip H Sc. Medical Massage

The last article (shown here) focused on the long term difference Pilates has made to Frank’s chronic lower back injury. We saw how over time his posture changed and his address position improved dramatically. His handicap had improved and he was playing more golf. From a broad perspective the key components to Frank’s program have always been: • Core stability & spine mobility. • Flexibility of the hips shoulders and spine. • Strengthening the abdominals, shoulders, legs and upper back. However no single exercise achieved these results for Frank. The exercises in this article are an example of just some of the work we have used to achieve the level of improvement he has made. These results with Frank and all my clients were achieved through the combination of exercises both at home and in the Pilates studio that addresses the individual needs of the client. Each exercise has its individual purpose but also has components that combine with other exercises to achieve the desired results, be it reduced back pain, increased flexibility, core stability and much more. Frank’s studio and home programs were designed in a way so that in his sessions he would always stabilise his lower back first through “BASIC” abdominal work. This enabled him to then safely begin to stretch his spine out. After this we would do more strengthening work around his shoulders and hips and progressively moved into more dynamic stretches and strengthening work. Each part of his program was designed to build on what he had just done and assist him in doing the next exercise. Taking this into consideration, lets look at how the 3 exercises in the pictures combined to enable Frank to improve in all areas.. Exercise 1. helped Frank to strengthen his spine so that over time he was able to sit up tall. This took pressure off his upper and lower Spine and his neck. He also developed the shoulder strength and stability to maintain the posture for long periods. 1. Exercise 2. worked the abdominals, however without the Spinal work from exercise 1 he would not have been able to support his upper body and spine. Therefore, he would have increased the risk of re injuring his lower back. So Exercise 2 taught him how to apply the spinal work he had already been taught. This enabled him to strengthen his abdominals and continue to strengthen his spine. Exercise 3. when done correctly, helped to stretch out Frank’s entire body. To achieve the best results in this exercise the spine work in the previous two exercises needed to be applied. Without the correct upper body alignments the majority of the lower body stretch was lost. The more we could stretch Frank out in exercise 3 the easier it became for him to do exercises 1 and 2 over time, therefore, creating a continual loop between the 3 exercises. This process is a continual ongoing development, As Frank improved, we did not just give him new exercises but reworked the sequence he did the exercises in. So as he was learning to do exercise 1 kneeling, we started with exercise 2 to get his abdominals working, then exercise 3 to stretch out his hips making it easier for him to balance himself while he did the work required in exercise 1.

2.

3.

Too this day we still use these 3 exercises in his program. We have added rotational components to the exercises, increased the load and made the stretches more dynamic but 3 years on they still play key role for Frank in keeping him active Taking all this into consideration if we look at his spine, we can see how all the exercises have taught Frank how to apply the spine work so that he maintains good spinal posture over the ball. Thus, taking the pressure off his back and leaving his spine in the optimal position for a strong free flowing golf swing. If you have any questions feel free to contact David on 0417 554 294 or email him at tmassageaust@yahoo.com Sessions are available at The Melbourne Golf Injury Clinic or at The Golf Club St Andrews Beach.

New Drummond Club Wine Partner Creates Our Own Wine All prestigious premium wines have history and a story to tell… and this exclusive wine is no exception to the rule. “At the famous Kingston Heath Golf Club in Victoria, 120 players were asked at a Drummond Golf awards presentation, to suggest a name for a signature wine that all golfers could identify with…” “Some months later… at the equally impressive Victorian Golf Club, another group in equal number, were asked to volunteer suggestions, upon how best to present this new wine for all golfers…” “Player’s from both groups then joined together for a Stableford round of golf, at the historical and beautiful Woodlands Golf Club in Victoria, and to witness the unveiling of their Drummond Club wine.” “With all this in mind… we now proudly present this premium wine, exclusively, to all Drummond Club members… a wine that’s heart, body and soul, is created by golfers, for golfers, in the Victorian heartland of golf.” At selected recent golf days we have introduced this wine with tremendous interest and success. With this in mind we appreciate the support of McLaren Vale III Associates in preparing a wine exclusively for the enjoyment of our Drummond Club Members and friends.

Bunker Shots: Many players find bunkers impossible to get out of that’s mainly because they do not create enough speed on the downswing. Without speed you either take too little sand and blade it, or get the club stuck in the sand and hit it fat. Swinging to a high finish on every sand shot will guarantee that you have generated enough speed through impact.
