Chapter Newsletter - May 15, 2024



Hello Members,



Here are a few Reminders:


  • Always read the monthly newsletter. You will find most everything you need to know about what’s going on.


  • Sign up early for events so you’re included. Waiting might not allow you to participate. Early sign up allows early planning for the events coordinator. If we do not meet minimum participants quickly, we risk cancelation.


  • Always feel free to ask a question, voice a concern, offer recommendations, and ideas. I welcome your emails and calls.


  • All members have a standing invitation to a TOWN HALL meeting I am proposing. I only have one member that reached out with interest so far.


  • Mentor Program is underway. If you are interested in having a mentor, please reach out to me at maryfaggiano11@gmail.com


Best regards,

Mary

Also, As we all begin play, keep in mind these Tips to Improve Pace of Play



 “It is the duty of every golfer to keep up with the game in front and not just ahead of the game behind!”


These are not rules but simply suggestions for you to use when possible.

  • Play Ready Golf. Unless in a competition, it is usually acceptable for players to “hit when ready."
  • If you feel there is any chance your original ball might be lost or out of bounds, play a provisional ball. If you do not find your lost ball in 3 minutes, play your provisional ball and take the penalty.
  • Keep your pre-shot routine short. Try to take no more than one practice swing, then set up to the ball and play your shot. Most importantly, be ready to hit when it is your turn. Start moving toward your next shot promptly. From club selection to pre-shot routine to execution, strive to hit your shot in 20 seconds when it is your turn to play.
  • Be helpful to others in your group. Follow the flight of all tee shots, not just your own. Once in the fairway, help others look for their ball if you already know the location of yours (3 minutes is allowed). Volunteer to fill in a divot or rake a bunker for another player if needed.
  • When sharing a cart, use a buddy system. Don’t wait in the cart with your partner. Drop her off, go to your ball and get ready for your shot. Or get out, and tell the passenger to go to their ball and you will meet them at the cart. Avoid walking back to the cart. Keep an extra ball in your pocket if you are in search of one. Bring more than one club, particularly if you’re chipping and have a variety of choices. Nothing wastes more time than sitting in the cart watching someone else play.
  • Be efficient on the putting green. Park your cart or leave your clubs between the green and the next tee, leave them in front of the green you’re playing. Mark your ball and lift and clean it when you arrive at the putting green so you will be ready to replace it when it is your turn to play. You can usually line up your putt while others are putting without disturbing them. Don’t mark every putt. If you have a two-footer, or something just outside the leather, go ahead and knock it in. Don’t rush but there is no reason to slave over every putt as if the Masters is riding on it.
  • Keep up with the group in front of you. Your correct position on the course is immediately behind the group in front of you, not immediately in front of the group behind you. Arrive at your next shot just before the group in front leaves the area in front of you. If you are consistently not able to keep up and a gap opens in front of you, invite the group behind you to play through, irrespective of the number of players in the group.

May 21st

Clinic May 4th at Ravenwood


Twenty-five members attended PGA Pro Lauren Tallman's clinic at Ravenwood. This clinic was structured as a group informational clinic. The participants observed how their body should function throughout their golf swing, and how it should not. Then, they went through a series of movement drills to feel how their body should move. Lastly, they hit their golf clubs and to try to feel the correct movement. We 're sure they all left knowing some great fundamentals.

Interested in one-on-one lessons with Lauren? Here is a link https://RavenwoodGolfLessons.as.me


Please note: At our Chapter clinics, the PGA Pros provide their time free of charge.

"Rain, Rain Go Away"...


....was what we heard from the 54 ladies who played in the Season Opener on May 11th at Ridgemont CC! The weather started out ok as we began playing the scramble format. But by the fifth or sixth hole the rain came down. Half of the 14 teams said "too wet for me" and the other 7 teams said "let's finish these holes." What we all did agree to do was go inside, enjoy the delicious buffet, have a hot or cold beverage and share good times with our golf friends.

The charity that benefitted from our 50/25/25 drawing was GiGi's Playhouse, an organization that offers direct educational, therapeutic and career building programs to individuals with Down syndrome, their families, and the community. We were able to donate $305 to this worthy charity.

No event would be successful without its volunteers!

Linda Opalisky brings over 30 years of professional teaching experience to Webster Golf Club. Through the years, Linda played on the Futures mini tour, taught in golf schools in Florida and New York and has attended numerous PGA and LPGA seminars thus keeping abreast of innovations on the instructional side of the game. She has created programs to promote her personal philosophy that golf is a game for a lifetime and should be fun to both learn and play. As a result of her success and dedication, she has been selected to the PGA President’s Council for Growing the Game through Player Development Programs every year beginning in 2004 to the present.

Linda emphasizes alignment, routines, and the short game because those parts of the game don’t know or care if you are young or old, strong or weak, male or female. All are crucial to lowering your score. Understanding the four basic positions of the follow thru is important too, because when standing still anyone can be as good as a tour player. Linda often uses ‘on course’ instruction because just hitting balls is not at all like playing the game.

Cobblestone Capital Advisors has become a Double Eagle Sponsor for our LPGA Amateurs-Rochester Chapter again. Their offerings include traditional investment management and wealth management services, as well as private investments and family office services. Cobblestone employs a customized goals-based approach to wealth management, which is guided by the unique needs and objectives of each client. Our LPGA Amateurs member, Tara Henry, is a Principal and the Director of Operations at Cobblestone and can provide further information or answer any questions you may have. Thank you to Cobblestone Capital Advisors for your support of LPGA Amateurs- Rochester Chapter.

Playing to a Par of 72 and just over 7,200 yards from the championship tees, Greystone offers 4 sets of tees on every hole to ensure the course is playable, challenging, and rewarding for golfers of all skill levels.

Whether you are looking for the perfect place to play golf, enjoy a drink at the bar or on the patio overlooking the golf course or even a relaxing dinner with the special someone, Wild Wood Country Club has it all. Our Executive Chef has helped bring the country club back to Wild Wood,

"Wild Wood Country Club was founded as a private country club in 1968 known as Thunder Ridge Country Club. In 1980 the club changed names to Wild Wood Country Club and became semi-private allowing non members to play. The club was recently take over by Henrietta natives Mike & Liz Sweazy. We have spent the last 5 years improving the level of service, appearance and golf course drainage. The club has transformed into a full service year round banquet facility, golf course and indoor simulators allowing for year round golf leagues and tournaments. In 2019, Wild Wood was selected as #18 Public/Semi-Private golf course in New York State. What an accomplishment in only 6 full years of ownership."
