Greetings from David Wood
Orsett Golf Club - PGA Golf Professional

Over rated? I don't think so pal!

Rickie Fowler proved to the world he is definitely not an over rated player. What was the "scribe" thinking writing that? Does the top 5 in 4 straight Majors count for nothing these days? If not, Fowler really showed the journalist how little he must understand about golf. Probably as good a finish any time in golf, 6 under for the last 6 holes, Fowler stole in to win a 3 way play off for golf's "5th Major in Jacksonville last week.

He trailed Sergio (who missed 14 putts inside 10 feet ) by plenty going into the back nine and even with a bogey on No 10, the fans favourite played flawless golf under huge pressure. Spare a thought for though for Kevin Kisner, first visit to Sawgrass. He had a putt from 15 feet to win, then played the play off perfectly only to get beaten by a further wonder shot on the 17th hole by Fowler. Kisner lost out to Jim Furyk just a couple of weeks ago at The Heritage, again in a play-off. He birdied the first extra hole which wasn`t enough, so he has all the tools. Could he be another new kid here to stay, pushing Rory in the future? Time will tell.

PING fitting day, full!

All fitting times for this month`s fitting day with PING are now full. If you would like to get on the waiting list please call and we will then contact you if an appointment becomes available. Failing that, remember I have my own GC2 launch monitor and PING's N-Flight software which is available at any time. So if you would like me to help you get the right product in your hands to increase your enjoyment of your golf get in touch and let`s get you on the FAST trail.

Go large and give that man a medal

Joe Knight can attest that having a good contact with the club can really help. We re-gripped Joe with both new grips and a slightly larger size than his clubs had previously. So what happens? First time out he wins the May medal, second time out he gets a further handicap cut after coming 4th in the very next event, The Walsham Cup. Perhaps it could make a difference to your game, fresh grips and better scores.

Barry lines up The Walsham Cup

Walsham Cup winner Barry Sutton couldn`t be more happy with the 40 points and success at the weekend. Here is what he said afterwards.

"I`ve been struggling with my game during the Spring and decided it was time to get some help from David. He gave me just 2 simple things to be aware of; 1. a pre swing to get aimed correctly and, 2. a swing thought to release the club, and what a difference it made! I played the best I`ve played all year. I knew I had a good score going but got a bit edgy and I`m just glad the miss from 14 inches on the last (although his best friend Peter Twigg said it was nearer!) didn`t cost me. So I`ll be back to David for a putting lesson under pressure next!"

Pictured here Barry left and Peter right.

Not to be too out done by son Jack who won last weeks event, Steve Shiner was runner up on 38 with Tony "The Bear" Allen 3rd on the same score.

Ladies Munro success

Ladies pair Jacqui Callaway and Katy Grant had fabulous 2 up win away over Maylands (they must be fed up of playing Orsett) in the second round of the Munro Foursomes earlier this week. Never easy to win away but the ladies did it in style. They are looking a formidable pair, with Katy`s power and Jacqui's control, a 3rd round match is eagerly being looked forward to.

Plate goes the same way as the main event

Leslie Wood team Captain John Charlick took the defeat to Stoke By Nayland badly. Having tied the match 5 -5 on the home and away basis, the team lost on holes won by 3. With the squad selected he had high hopes for his team. He thanked his team and selectors for their efforts. No 1 player at home Paul Worral got a special mention for winning his match and completing 18 holes in 2 hours 30 minutes. It is possible to play well and play quick.

PING Glide assessment

Carl Vanderhook had read up about the newest wedges in the PING family, the Glide model. Being intrigued I gave him a couple to assess. Here are his thoughts on those wedges…

"The shape is designed perfectly to sit neatly behind the ball. The options of sole width was useful as Orsett's bunkers have plenty of sand so the wider sole option worked much better than my existing sand iron. The lie angles can be fitted with 9 options. The grip is hugely different in that it is the same width from top to bottom giving a constant fit in my hands when playing delicate shots, coupled with the grip markings to aid repetitive distance control that I haven`t seen on any other clubs. These are going to be helpful to anyone who has a problem with short game distances. There isn`t anything not to like about the Glide wedges really. So much better than my ones, I have decided to buy some"
