Complete Coverage of Our 14th Annual Stenberg Cup!

You hear it all the time.

It’s a lament of golfers the world over – “I’ve lost my swing.”

Not on Monday, June 11th!

As the weather cleared, bringing forth glorious sunshine, the pros were back, lining up for the tee off at Trump National Golf Club.  It was Astor Services for Children & Families 14th Annual Stenberg Cup Golf Tournament… and everyone was eager to spring into golf.

Golfer swingingI can guarantee that no one on this magnificent course thought the way Mark Twain did, when he said, “Golf is a good walk spoiled.”

What they did think and know was they were making a difference in the lives of the children at the residential treatment center in Rhinebeck.

The proceeds for this event were being used to complete the Jan Weido Bicycle Path – another good course to ride or walk.

There were 18 holes of golf, continental breakfast, lunch, cocktail reception, dinner, 25 foursomes and the 1st place winner was Enterprise! Congratulations to all the teams.

Now is the time to think about your technique, to be ready for the 15th Annual Stenberg Cup Tournament next year!

Did you know, if there was a winner for the hole-in-one contest, the person would have received a vehicle donated by Rhinebeck Ford?!

CHALLENGE:

Slicing the ball is a common problem among golfers. A slice is when the ball travels from one direction to the other, generally not in the direction you want it to go.  This contrariness of the ball not to go straight toward the hole is the bane of the golfing world.

SOLUTION:

Correcting a golf slice is not difficult.  Hire a golf instructor, purchase some DIY books and/or grab a golfing buddy to follow you around the fairway and tell you what you are doing wrong.

Afterward don’t forget to shout out to your golf buddy for some liquid refreshments at the clubhouse!
