South Bay Polo was please to host Corky Linfoot for a clinic in the month of May. A Former 7-goaler, Corky has won two U.S. Opens, 4 Pacific Opens and multiple tournaments abroad.
The three day clinic was split between the various polo clubs in the region, with many participating. Many a polo player hears a little voice in their head, as they play the game, and it’s usually Corky’s. “Slow Down”, “Two Hands”, “Speed Kills”, and “Own the Diamond” are indelibly ingrained in many a players head. The group consisted of advanced players to beginners. Corky had something for everyone. Friday night covered the hitting cage, and Saturday was devoted to know-in strategies, and play at South Bay Polo. Sunday was coached at Menlo Polo Club. The highlight of his clinics are the coaching and playing videos. It allows the participant to obsess over every little new suggestion or technique promoted. Tim Westin, owner of South Bay Polo, shown with Corky, was happy to host the clinic. As is the South Bay Polo Tradition, everyone stayed around to socialize, and enjoy a sumptuous BBQ lunch.
