“Andy and Martyn Back in the Winners circle

After not winning any Blind Golf events since 2010 with a very poor decline in form I was wondering if I would ever be competitive again. As a visually impaired golfer visiting a Professional scared me as I was concerned they would talk technical about swing plane and where the club should face throughout the swing  etc which I cannot see. However I bit the bullet and visiting Gary Pritchard PGA Professional of Normanton Golf Club was the best thing I have ever done.

Gary kept things really simple giving me just 3 simple things to do at addressing the ball and 1 swing thought. Without me knowing this has completely changed my swing and whilst it takes time to bed in I am now seeing the benefits 15months on with, in my opinion, a better Golf swing than I have ever had when I was a so called better golfer!! . Golf has really helped me in my personal life with focusing on lots of practice in the last 5 months and getting me out of the house when not working or spending special times with my children. The focus and goal of trying to be competitive again in Blind Golf has really helped me and I must offer huge thanks to Gary for laying the foundations, Andy Booth and Jack Fox members of Normanton for the hours of support at the range and on the course and of course Martyn Wright (my trusted guide) for sticking by me when I know he must have been so frustrated at the decline in performance.

It’s an amazing feeling to see the work pay off and WIN again and bring the Jack Kerfoot Northern Cup back North!!! To all other Blind Golfers who are feeling down on their form stick with it keep it simple and have  belief”
