Cape Gazette Beckwith m, dtiple winner in the 2010 00olfseason SPORTS & OUTDOORS FRIDAY, OCTOBER 15.- MONDAY, OCTOBER 18, 2010 arah lane Beckwith of Sussex Pines Country Club has every reason to be very proud of her competitive accomplishments during the 2010 golf season. The Sussex Pines Ladies' Golf Association members are also huge fans of hers, and they made sure that the Cape Region learned about Beckwith's feats. Sue Scaglione recently wrote in to note a few of Beckwith's notable accomplishments. For example, Beckwith won the two- day Women's Peninsula Golf As- sociation (WPGA) Champi- onship, held at Nassawango Country Club July 27 and 28. She followed that up with a victory in the WPGA Senior Championship, held on Beck- with's home course 0. Aug. 17, Not content to rest on her newfound laurels, Beckwith then won the Sussex Pines two- day Club Championship, held Aug. 27-28. ICings Creek Counffy Club results The ladles of Kings Creek Country Club have a regular golf game schedule, but it is not al- ways restricted to the women golfers at the Cape Region club. On Oct. 7, the club held a Red & White Toumament. The women team members played offthe red tees, andthe men played off the white tees. Rita Musi and Dave Pie won first place, followed in second place by Susan Sala and Henry Reeves. Third-place honors went to Marybeth Merolla and Dave Bradley. The special closest to the pin competition winner was Bob Vanderloo. Perhaps Vanderloo should have told everyone else that it was his partner's ball in- stead - or maybe not. An all-star assortment of gog in- sbuction There's no one perfect way to learn how to play golf. That's be- Cause we all learn motor skills, eye-hand coordination and the mental aspects of the game in different ways, at different stages in our lives and with varying de- grees of interest in the way the instructional materials are pre- sented to us. This is all good for those in the golf instruction business. Af- ter all, if someone had come out previously with the one best way to learn the game, there v rould be no reason for all those c 9mpeting approaches that We on TV and read in the goff mgazines and golf books. Longtime golf instructor Mark teinbauer, working with Htuki ira, appears to have a keen ap- reciation for all that variety, as aown in his new book, "18 r ',ame-Changing Lessons: Talk- lg Golf with Legends ad Prbs." The PGA pro is the director of Mfat The Club at Carlton goods in The Woodlands, xas. He taught golf at the ,cademy of Golf, the Iicklaus/Flick Golf Schools and is own training center. Steinbauer also had a stint i dth Harvey Penick, his avowed lentor arid the author of the i Dest-seUing "Little Red Golf Book." I Steinbauer has gathered to- gether in his new book some of what he considers the best teaching tips for golfers of all skill levels in each of the major parts of the game, from driviag to putting. I like the way he structured these lessons. In segments such as the Jim Flick chapter called "Swing, Don't Hit," Steinbauer describes the basic point that Flick tried to impart to his stu- (lents. i Flick tries to make sure golfers don't overcomplicate their game, hile also understanding tha t everyone can swing like pro. Steinbauer then takes this :en- tral thesis and shows how high handicappers, mid-handicap! players and highly skilled ama- teurs can use this informatioa at their particular skill level. There's a world of difference between Dave Pelz' scientifiq at- titude toward golf and Harve Penick's "Take Dead Aim" apho- risms. i Steinbauer did some nice Work in showing how these tWo Yecandeffperentan;etcmhingggliSgtyleg golfers, albeit to different de I l] 1  ,iJ GAME-CHANGINiG LESSONS ! skill levels. .t ,/ 105 SUBMITTED PHOTO SARAH JANE BECKWITH of Sussex Pines Country Club was a multiple winner this past golfing season, having won the two- day Women's Peninsula Golf Association (WPGA) Championship held at Nassawango Country Club July 27-28, the WPGA Senior Championship held at Sussex Pines Country Club Aug. 17, and the Sussex Pines two-day Club Championship held Aug. 27-28. to play, it should be effective for - a wide audience of folks looking to learn more about their fa- vorite game. grees depending on their own ways of learning.
