It’s that time of year again! All golf fans will be glued to the TV watching the world’s best battle it out at Augusta to try and win the green jacket.

For many of us it is our first taste of golf.

The moment where we are unable to take our eyes off the drama and then the next day we find ourselves desperate to give golf a go. Could we be the next Danny Willett?

I know the Masters was my first taste of golf and when I look back I can remember how engrossed I was, desperate to see if I could one day be good enough to make the trip up Magnolia Drive and walk those famous fairways.

Although I wasn’t able to fulfil that goal, I am very fortunate to help others on their journey to make their dreams come true.

In the build up to the Masters many of our members will be wondering who I think will win.

At the moment Dustin Johnson looks almost unstoppable but with his soft fade off the tee, will the golf course suit him? I am not so sure.

The course certainly suits Rory McIlroy and if he can find his top form he will take some stopping. Personally I always fancy Jordan Spieth and Adam Scott at Augusta. Both past winners but Jordan’s incredible putting always gives him a chance around a course which has such challenging greens.

Adam Scott is about as close as we have seen to a technically perfect golf swing and he always seems to look at home at the Masters. One thing is for sure, it will be a terrific spectacle and a great advert for golf.

If the Masters inspires you to try golf for the first time then please get in touch with us at Bearwood Lakes. We have numerous Junior and Ladies Beginner Courses starting over the coming weeks plus one to one lessons are a great way to learn.

For those of you who already play golf, try and learn how the players cope with the pressure of playing in a major. Watch how they ensure their pre-shot routine is the same every time to help settle their nerves and distract them from what it would mean to win the famous green jacket.

I hope you will get the chance to enjoy the golf over the weekend and if you can get out on a course during this early spring sunshine then enjoy your game!
