Editor's Comments

Hello my golfing friends,

Welcome to all the new readers in USA, Canada & UK and thanks to everyone who has spread the word about Golfing Weekly.

What a week it's been. The website is really coming along and, as you will have seen, this week we have published the magazine on the site as well as making it available for download. I started the magazine so that I would have a good excuse to watch and play more golf, but last week I was so busy that I didn't swing a club once. So, now that the magazine is put to bed I'm going for a quick practice session. Talking of practice, this week's tip is an excellent technique for practicing your chipping at home. Before you try it out yourself, I recommend that, rather than practicing in the direction of a window (as shown in the photos) you line yourself up with the sofa or something else which is unbreakable and will deaden the sound of the golf balls bouncing around your living room.

There was some excellent golf to watch at the weekend, not least the nail-biting finish of the Nissan Open. After leading by 7 shots earlier in the round, Mike Weir was faced with playing the final hole as if it were sudden death in order to retain his title. Great stuff.

Everyone has been saying that Tiger Woods isn't playing so well these days but three top ten finishes from three starts this year isn't bad in my book. As soon as he starts playing all four rounds of a competition in the same determined way he has played the final round in recent tournaments he'll be taking the silverware home again, I have no doubts. This week's matchplay format may just give him the focus he needs.

That's it for now. Don't forget, if there is anything you would like us to add to Golfing Weekly, just drop us a line. This is your magazine and we want you to enjoy reading it as much as we enjoy putting it together.

All the best,

Andy Smith
