CLUB NEWS Course Maintenance Update
As the weather gets increasingly hotter, our GCM team will be doing their best to keep the golf course in the best possible shape. You will notice some small areas around the course that have been aerated as well as some small patches on the greens. These areas will heal quickly and we trust that they won’t disrupt play too much. The bent grass greens are especially sensitive to extreme heat and humidity so our GCM team will be hand watering during the day on many of the greens. Please respect the fact that this will benefit the Club in the end and be patient as our team is watering. You will also see many greens with large fans around them. These fans are essential to keeping the greens cool and although they may occasionally come in to play, they play a very important role throughout the summer months. The water edging is now finished on the 18th hole and work is moving along on other water hazard edges such as the 2nd and 9th holes. The finished product on 18 looks fantastic and will undoubtedly provide some excitement on any golf shot that heads in that direction. Please be cautious when hitting shots toward any of the team working on the project. As always, we thank you for your understanding with regards to these matters and if you have any questions or comments, please feel free to let me know at any time. Yours sincerely, Gavin Eckford Director of Golf PGA of Canada
CLUB NEWS Caddie Party – 9th July 2012
CLUB NEWS J Lindeberg at Sheshan By Gavin Eckford
In the past, the US PGA Tour has
generally been a little more conservative with regards to fashion, but in the late 1990s, a Swedish golfer put a new spin on golf apparel in the United States and around the world. Jesper Parnevik became instantly recognizable for his flashy white trousers, fitted shirts, vibrant colors and his signature cap with the brim flipped up. This sparked a new interest in bringing more flamboyant European designs to the game of golf around the world. Johan Lindeberg was the mastermind behind the Parnevik sensation and his company J Lindeberg (known to many as JL) has since become a huge name in the world of fashion both inside and outside the game of golf. JL has not been available in the Chinese market but the brand will soon be available to the Chinese golf market in very few select locations. We are very pleased to announce that Sheshan International Golf Club will be one of the few golf courses in China to carry the Swedish fashion brand. Look for J Lindeberg to hit the shelves of our Pro Shop during the month of August!
WHAT’S IN THE BAG? What’s In Cyrus Janssen’s Bag? By Gavin Eckford
So far we have taken a look at Robbie’s golf bag, as well as my own. This month, it is on to Sheshan Head Teaching Professional, Cyrus Janssen’s turn to let us in on the equipment he keeps in his golf bag!
For decades, Titleist has been renowned for making some of the best golf balls in the world. Since the Pro-‐V1 hit the golf scene in late 2000, it quickly took the world of golf by storm. It has been the #1 ball in Professional Golf for many years now. Although Titleist is generally associated with golf balls first, they also make exceptional equipment.
Sheshan Head Teaching Professional Cyrus Janssen uses Titleist golf equipment.
Cyrus uses the Titleist 910D3, 9.5 degrees with the Mitsubishi Diamana Kai’li X-‐Stiff. The 910D3 features a traditional shaped head with Titleist SureFit technology which allows the driver to change lie angles and lofts making a custom fit for the golfer. With a fairly low center of gravity, the driver launches mid and has mid to low spin rates. This club is good for those who want to be able to control the ball flight a little more. For length and accuracy, we recommend the 910D2 which is slightly larger and more forgiving.
To be continued…
WHAT’S IN THE BAG?
For irons, Cyrus uses Titleist AP2s with Project X 6.0 shafts. The AP2s have been a very popular iron as it provides a great blend of workability and forgiveness. The clubs have the feel and shot-‐shaping abilities of a forged blade with the forgiveness of a high-‐end cast iron. Along with exceptional playability, the AP2 iron is one of the nicest looking irons in the game of golf. For those looking for even more feel, try the Titleist MB Forged or CB Forged. For those looking for something more forgiving with an emphasis on higher and straighter shots, try the AP1. The AP1 still looks great but is a little more forgiving for those occasional off-‐centered hits. For many years, some of the best wedges in the world have come from Bob Vokey who designs for Titleist. Cyrus uses the spin milled Vokey SM4 wedges in 52,56, and 60 degrees. With clean traditional designs, Vokey wedges look great and perform great as well. Solid feel and high spin rates are some of the feature of the Vokey wedges. As Bob Vokey is synonymous with wedges, Scotty Cameron is so with putter designs. On the greens, Cyrus uses a Scotty Cameron GoLo at 35 inches. It’s matte black finish provides for a sleek look while it’s milled face provides for a true roll off the putter every time. Its mallet shape has a fantastic sound which increases the overall feel of the putter.
Here is a complete list of what’s in Cyrus Janssen’s bag:
Driver: Titleist 910D3 9.5 Degree Diamana Kai’ Li X Flex 3 Wood: Titleist 910F 15 Degree Diamana Kai’ Li X Flex Hybrid: Titleist 910H 19 Degree Fujikura Speeder 904 X Flex Irons: Titleist AP2 Project X 6.0 Wedges: Titleist SM4 Spin Milled 52, 56, 60 Degree Project X 5.5 Putter: Titleist Scotty Cameron GoLo S 35 Inches Ball: Titleist Pro V1
GOLF RULE OF THE MONTH
Golf: A game of 34 rules but many variables
Rule 15: Playing The Wrong Ball By Robbie Sherwin
If you have played the wrong ball through the green, the shot you have just hit does not count but you will incur 2 penalty strokes. You have to go back and play the correct ball (put the wrong ball back).
If you cannot find the correct ball, you have to return to the place where you last played the correct ball from and drop another ball with 1 additional penalty stroke for the lost ball (you can tee the ball up if the shot was played from the teeing ground). If you finish a hole and tee off on the next hole before rectifying your mistake, you will be disqualified. One suggestion I would make would be to add additional makings to your golf ball, this will make it easier identify your ball and make it less likely for you to hit the wrong ball the next time you are playing.
