Yas Links
Challenge

This month’s challenge:
When someone in your group is hitting off the tee, what should you be doing?
a) Stand quietly out of view and watch where his ball lands.
b) Take the opportunity to eat a few potato chips and crumple the bag up when
you’re putting it back into your pocket.
c) Point out to the others in your group some of the many things the hitter is doing
wrong in his swing.
d) Shout, “Oh, look! An airplane!” right when he’s at the top of his back swing.
Send your answers to info@yaslinks.com and get a chance to win a weekday 2 ball on
the Links Course. The winner will be announced on the next issue of ‘What’s on at
Yas Links’. Good luck!
