Greetings from David Wood
Orsett Golf Club - PGA Golf Professional

New member Michael Hepting showed the field a clean pair of heels in the recently played Radin Cup Bogey Qualifier. Playing off a handicap of 21, he destroyed the field with a score of +7.What did he put it down to? 

  • Having a new set of custom made irons
  • Having a couple of swing lessons over the winter
  • Being fortunate to be playng once a week despite the bad weather.

"Getting both the newly fitted irons and a couple of lessons from David has certainly helped my game. My goal of a new handicap of 18 has nearly been reached. I'm currently playing of 18.8 so will hope to continue improving toward my new goal of 15. Unlike many of my friends at other clubs who haven`t continually played this winter, it has been possible here and it has helped to keep up the momentum and it hasn`t felt like starting afresh at any time"

Michael now goes into the matchplay with Evergreen runner up Cliff Keeble (+4), one of the biggest hands in county golf, and Paul Mason (+3) who got in as a reserve on the morning of the event. Along with 29 others, they lock horns in the matchplay stages held over the next few months.

Just arrived in store is some of the Spring/Summer mens clothing range from Ashworth. The fabrics and colours are excellent, very lightweight and perfect for both on and off the golf course. Justin rose will be their main 'clothes horse' this season, so if you would like to wear what Justin wears at The Masters, it's in the store now.

Don't forget to have a go on our Masters sweepstake. Loads of fantastic prizes can be won and you never know the winner could get a fabulous surprise to boot. £5 secures a player, but be quick as this is a short field and it closes on the Sunday before the event starts, less than a month away.

Karl Morris night tops 100

Many thanks to those who are coming along to what will be a very enlightening evening soon. Over 100 members and their guests are now signed up and looking forward to losing 5 shots off their score without changing their swing. We still have room available so click here to avoid missing out.You have just over a week. £10 gets you a seat, £16.50 gets food on the table. It's going to be an eye opener for many.

Doral; a bigger monster than ever

The WGC event held at Donald Trump's Doral facility has lived up to its nickname this time. No more winning scores of 16 under, more like 16 over. 3x as many golf balls were hit into water on the reinvented Blue Monster. A completely resculpted course in under 11 months gave the best players in the world an exam many could not master. Forget last week and the 'Bear pit', how about 'Trump's hair pit'! Known for his buffoon hair style, the course had players literally pulling their hair out. Ball after ball found many of the new lakes, firm fast greens and shaved surrounds added to the difficulty of Doral. It would be interesting to know if any player actually brought back the same ball any day, unlikely with so many going into the aqua.

The winner, Patrick Reed, has had quite a change in the last few years. 584th in the world rankings just 3 years ago and now top 25. Top Brit, Welshman Jamie Donaldson, who played solid all week right up to the last iron short. Unfortunately he just couldn't commit, bailed out and lost by 1. Reed played the last very conservatively and didn't even get out of the rough with his tee ball. But he did just enough, and 1.5 million is 1.5 million. Well done to both of them putting far more experienced players in their place.

Tiger's back gave way again. Could this be Tiger on the wain - Injury prone, swing breaking down. Can the great man find a game to win those Majors he desperately seeks ?

Spare a thought for the caddies with so many wayward shots from the players. They would have all taken extra balls with them, as if those bags weren`t heavy enough already!

This week is the Sunningdale Foursomes, I`ll let you know how I got on next week.

Well Done England

Well done to England at the weekend. Mine was ruined with the result at Twickenham on Sunday. They played Wales off the park and deserved the revenge handed out. The Head Coaches of both teams have much to consider before the World Cup next season. England will have to consider whether to trust the younger players or bring back the more experienced injured players. Maybe Wales will need to find some fresh legs and variable tactics. The newspapers had the perfect headline on the match - Men vs Boyohs. I'll be in the pro shop Saturday for those who need to collect their winnings.

Putting passion into your past time, Regards, David
The benefits of knowing your golf ball

Distance and feel are two big factors you need to consider before settling on your golf ball choice. Yes we want performance in both departments, but we also need to consider your own skill level before making the right selection.

Titleist SM5 wedges
The short game is so important, something that’s not lost on the legendary Bob Vokey. Titleist Vokey wedges need no introduction. The latest Spin Milled (SM5) wedges will arm you with more spin and give you a few more shots in your locker through new, deeper TX3 grooves.
Titleist AP1 irons
These two sets from Titleist are fantastic to look down on at address, with a classy finish that will just make you want to get out there and play. The 714 AP1 irons should appeal to both the mid to high handicappers out there, not just single figure golfers.
