PGA Pro Ben Doney talks about the perfect Flop Shot. If you need to get your ball from the edge of the green or up a steep hill, the flop shot is ideal. Done well, the ball will stop almost immediately after landing and if you can get it near the hole – you’ll be in great shape.
RULES TIP by BEN DONEY – No Penalty for a Double-Hit ✨⛳️
⛳️ This applies when a single stroke is made and the club happens to connect with the ball more than once throughout the swing.????????
⛳️ Under the rules of golf, this only counts as one stroke .????????♀️
⛳️ Play the ball from its new position.

From Tiger Woods to Inbee Park everyone started golf as a beginner. We all had to learn how to make that little white ball go somewhere in the vicinity of where we wanted it. Some of us have learnt to do it better than others, but no one has avoided air swings, chunks, topped shots, shanks, trees and water. Not even Tiger
So why have so many golfers persevered? Why is golf such a passion to so many?
Well…….. it is just so rewarding in so many ways. Socially, physically, and mentally, golf enhances the wellbeing of people without regard to their age, gender, religion or nationality.
Golf can be likened to having a baby that never sleeps, is demanding and takes all your time. You love it all the same and work to help it grow and prosper.
The challenge golf presents you is its magic and the key that unlocks a lifetime of
HOPE – If I keep at it, I will get better!
LEARNING – One more you tube video and I will get this right!
FRIENDSHIP – I love these guys, my golfing mates!
Golf in it’s extremes can take you from despair to ecstasy in a few shots. It can introduce you to people you may have never met and places you may never have thought to visit. Golf’s magic is its ability to bring people together to compete not just for the prizes on offer but for the glory of conquering your nerves and skill limitations. Embrace the air swings as part of the process. Learn the basics, the etiquette, and get involved. Let the beautiful sport of golf be your passion too!
PLAY IN OUR GOLF COMPS… FROM ANYWHERE IN AUSTRALIA
Are you ready for a new era in competition golf? Our comps allow players of all abilities to play from anywhere, anytime, while enjoying the benefits of playing against a community of golfers. Here’s how you can get involved.
Golf competitions have always been a staple of our beloved game. Think community, the chance to challenge yourself and beat your mates, and of course, great prizes! While our lives outside of golf have evolved, standard competitions haven’t kept up, and their restrictive nature doesn’t match our busy lifestyles.
Too many players aren’t bothering with competitions because they can’t commit to a single club or access regular tournaments. So, we decided to change all that!
Welcome to Australia’s largest online golf competition!
Welcome to Australia’s largest online golf competition! that allows players with an official Golf Australia Handicap to play against golfers from across the country. We wanted our competition to be super flexible, so players from all walks of life and abilities could compete fairly no matter where they are or when they can play.
“It was hard to see so many people unable to participate in competition golf because of time, expense and location restrictions”. says Emajin CEO Raj Narayan. “We are really excited to bring Australia’s largest online competition to life and welcome such a diverse and inclusive community to the world of golf competitions.”

???? The key is to practice your chipping and putting instead of the long game!
FIVE key tips to help lower your score:
1. Limit the risk – choose the shot you can execute the highest percentage of the time
2. Pace your putts – as a rule of thumb add one inch to your backswing for every foot of putting distance

5. Putt, Chip, Pitch – Putt whenever you can. Chip when you can’t putt, Pitch only when you have to
