Greetings from David Wood
Orsett Golf Club - PGA Golf Professional

The highs and lows of it….

One minute we are cheering Alfie “Bottle” Buttle (as he has now been nicknamed) executing the perfect bunker shot to within a foot in front of 50 people to win the Youth Shield match against Thorpe Hall 3-2 on Saturday to be followed with agonising defeats in the Ladies Bronze match in appalling conditions 4-3 to Crondon Park and The Thornton Cup side 8.5 -6.5 to West Essex last Sunday.

The losses mean the Ladies need two good wins and hope other teams can help them if they are to continue in the competition.

Unfortunately the men’s first team had it all to do against a strong West Essex team with their collegiate golfers back to play. The tail wagged in the morning reducing the deficit to 3-2 and with ebb and flow in the singles it all came down to the last match Orsett needing to win to force a playoff. Kane Lyn-Jones putt stopped agonisingly short from 8 feet on the 17th and then got the biggest “flyer” 174 yard 9 iron (that went 200 yards) clean over everything to leave an impossible pitch he got to 20 feet and the putt looked all but in to slide agonisingly by. So next year beckons for them. It`s great team golf and makes you understand what being a club member can be about.

A Ward that cup to Michael…

Michael Lilley put together a brilliant round in the recent Ward Cup, a bogey event with a plus 6 total. Not bad considering he plays off (did) 10. He beat a disappointed Matt King 5 up and Steve Faulkner 4up with some excellent golf. Michael, recently ran in the London Marathon so endurance wasn’t going to be difficult in the humid conditions last Saturday. Well done to all the players. Steve has forced himself out of the Leslie Wood team with that score, perhaps Michael would be a good substitute?

Congratulations to Sophie Wheeler on recently winning the Essex Ladies Golf Union Girls Handicap Championship with a score of 139. One of our few girl members but what a great performance by her, well done!

On a lighter team note, Ron Morrison’s “Shufflers” play a match against Romford twice a year. So far Ron and the boys have a 5-1 advantage after the latest “thrashing” (Ron’s words) so Captain “Shuffler” is confident of adding to that in the return leg in August.


PING Demo Day 12th June

Sport Spikeless

Some of you may not be aware of an opportunity to purchase a great pair of shoes with a big discount. For this month we are offering the FootJoy Sport Spikeless shoe at £20 off its current retail price of £94.95! All you have to do is bring an old pair in (similar to a previous offer) and get that massive discount. A perfect summer shoe, no spikes, just pimples yet maintaining the look of its trendy brother, the FootJoy Sport.

Titleist Velocity

For those who have not tried the Velocity ball from Titleist, here’s the perfect opportunity. For a short time we are offering 14 balls for the price of 12. A ball that gives a firm feel from the club face yet very playable around the green. With the greens a little softer and fairways not running fast why not give them a try?

Captain’s Charity day - June 28th

Keep the date clear. A shotgun start in the afternoon, teams of 4 players all for good causes get entering members!

Playoffs decide Tour events

This week on Tour, playoffs decided the winners. With so many who could win each week, playoffs are inevitable. In America Hideki Matsuyama beat Kevin Na. Na shot 64 in the last round to just watch all those above him, including Watson and Scott all collapse down the stretch. A great win though for the Japanese player having just started out on the US Tour.

In Europe Thongchai Jaidee won a three man playoff in Sweden. The ever improving Victor Dubuisson and Ryder Cup hopeful Stephen Gallacher were the losers this time. Henrik Stenson, the home favourite, just couldn’t quite maintain his level and finished 5th.

And on that note, as some of you will know, I attempted to qualify for the Honda Masters, this week’s Senior Tour event (I know, I don’t look old enough) at Stoke By Nayland and lost out in a playoff too!

It went 4 extra holes before I bowed out with a par to 3 birdies! Ce La vie.
