The hi-lite of the local golf season is creeping closer, but right now we're more concerned with your golf game.
And here's how you can get better, by playing more like this guy does on the BNG golf bargains tour.

"Hi I'm Sam Lapp. We're here at Hillendale Golf Course with Denise Barkley and my son Danny Lapp. We're going to give you a little demonstration on how to play the number 9 hole here at Hillendale. It's about 406 yards from the back tees and 361 yards from the front tees."

Danny Lapp says, "There is water. It's about 150 yards to carry, but most people won't have a problem. I don't like to go right because I'd be on the uphill lie. I like to go left so I have a flat lie right to the green."

"Well, we're about 145 out. There's a big tree on the right. You don't want to get behind that because there's no shot. You want to hit it kind of left by that knoll because if you hit it on the knoll, it kicks right. If you hit it past the knoll it kicks left so a little bit left on the knoll and you'll be perfect."

"Just a little bit off the green, putting for birdie...just talk a little bit about what you see in this putt...obviously this green is kind of undulating."
"I'm going to play it a little more right than usual. There's a big ridge right there...it's going to flatten out at the end."

"Nice par putt, especially after just missing that birdie. You can also enjoy a very fun round of golf here at Hillendale Golf Course by using the BNG Bargains."
