Graham's boys Button up the second round

Leslie Wood Team Captain Graham Button had to change 4 players from the previous round. Fortunately his squad had the experience required and a comfortable 11-4 win preceded. As you can see from the picture the team were suitably wrapped up for the difficult conditions. Well done to all the team who tamed the wind and coped with the excellent greens. They now face another home tie versus Abridge in the last 16.

The Will to win...

Having watched his Dad win the recent Joyes Trophy, Will Percival returned the compliment in the recent May Medal. His nett 69 was good enough on countback from Dan Vaughan, in form Mat Lewis and George Wickens, who availed of the glove promotion on the day and won a FREE glove! But Will has the bragging rights at dinner in the Percival household for now.

Walsham winner strikes again...

Last weekend’s event, the Walsham Cup, had everyone tying on their headwear. Winds gusting up to 35 miles per hour caused havoc with the field, except for Michael Hepting. An event winner already this season, he amassed a brilliant 40 points! New member Matt Bacon had a very creditable 38 and Club Captain (there’s a pattern to this) David Turner had a decent 37 aided by 3 twos on the par 3s! Michael’s handicap is now considerably lower. Well done to him, those lessons really did help then!

The ladies had some of the worst weather since winter to play their spring meeting. Horrible wet conditions made scoring difficult (or so you would think)

Angie Paton won the Scratch Trophy with an 86, Silver nett went to Karen Batch with a nett 75. Not to be outdone, Lady Captain Margaret Oliver scooped up the Bronze nett prize with 76.

The afternoon prizes were won by Angie Paton and April Glynn winning on countback from Lady Captain Margaret and her Vice Captain Ali Battle 19pts. Although the weather was grim, everyone enjoyed the day and all are looking forward to the, soon to take place, Ladies Guest Day later this month.

For anyone looking to purchase some new irons, now might be a good time as I have added a FREE fitting and complimentary lesson in the price. This is available on both PING and Titleist (sorry Mizuno players), so get in touch and let me help you get more from your game. Click here to find out more.

Also on offer we have the FootJoy Sport Spikeless. This is one of FootJoy’s more athletic styles, with excellent comfort and features. Get a £20 discount from us on stock sizes. Just leave us an old pair in return. So avoid delay and get in soon.


PGA Tour

Martin Kaymer, The Players Championship winner 2014! Sounds good to him no doubt. But what about those wilderness years Martin? A Major winner who decided to change everything. So he has now put it back how it was, holding off the challenge from US starlet, Jordan Spieth, Sergio, Furyk and, yes, Lee Westwood. It`s a lesson for all of us, just change little bits at a time, not the whole mechanism. A great front runner, Kaymer led from start to finish, around one of America’s toughest venues. A class player who made hardly a bogey all week and a certainty now for Captain McGinley in September. Spieth is close to being the boy wonder America are looking for. A little more composure and Jordan will be netting wins just like his namesake from Basketball.

European Tour

In Europe, local Essex boy Dan Brooks won the weather shortened Madeira Open in a playoff. There is nothing like the thrill of winning but, sadly, the win will be overshadowed by the untimely death of Ian McGregor (‘Big Mac’), Alistair Forsyth’s caddie, who died on the 18th hole the first day. The event still went ahead, and Forsyth carried on playing. Were either the right things to do? I doubt it, but we golfers are a peculiar bunch aren`t we.

Last chance battery trade inHow would you like to save some money so you have more cash for that round you owe in the clubhouse?! Well, if you trade in your old battery we can give you £25 against a Lithium battery. 

Lithium works out a lot cheaper over time and is the best way to power your golf trolley. This is your last chance – take advantage now.

Save yourself time and money, go lithium!

Sure, a lithium trolley battery may cost a little more than its lead acid alternative; but Motocaddy lithium lasts five times longer, is a fraction of the weight and recharges much faster. For trolley power, it pays to play the long game.
