Greetings from David Wood
Orsett Golf Club - PGA Golf Professional

Columbo, aka Karl Morris, put on an enlightening evening for well over 100 members and guests on Monday evening. Why Columbo? The need for evidence, feedback and a little black book whilst practicing had all the hallmarks of the great detective himself! The only things missing were the cigar and brown rain mac.

The Master NLP practitioner opened the eyes of the packed audience, who all took something away with them from the evening. The confirmation that top players really do play badly at times but use the same tools as we would, gave inspiration to everyone attending.

Developing skills, quality of attention, consequences were words that had everyone busily filling in their notebooks.

So no quiz, no tests, just simple procedures and clear methodology for us all to engage with, coupled with tuition, improvement holds no boundary people!

Those that attended have definitely the edge on those who couldn`t make it.

Jim - “The evening ran differently to what I was expecting plan to practice keeping my eyes above the flag line, I’m used to looking down at my shoes when I hit a bad shot”

Mark - “The shot game practice games made sense to me. No aimless standing in one place anymore, that’s for the bin”

Clare - “I never considered keeping a record physically, just mentally, but I can see the benefit of it and will be starting to fill in my little black book”

Tony - “To avoid talking about bad shots and try and recall only the good ones for a change give me a chance to stop brow beating myself into more bad shots”

Just a little feedback from the floor about the workshop seems to have changed some attitudes already.


Columbo always solved the case. Keeping a record of the evidence could pay dividends to you too!

Scrutton Cup is now also Lombard qualifier

If you’re playing in the Scrutton Cup in a couple of weeks, remember to enter for the Lombard qualifier at the same time. It’s a great chance to play Gleneagles at least 3 times for just £2! The best thing about it...the regional qualifier is at home, around our own course in June so what an opportunity it is. Ok you have to play alongside me in the fourball format but what an opportunity it is. And where is the Ryder Cup this year? Gleneagles. It could be a magical week, so get practicing.

All in store rainwear is currently 20% discounted. It is the perfect opportunity for both ladies and gents to replace that tired, leaky suit that has been worn throughout the worst season since Noah floated his Ark.

Also Ladies, just arrived is the new Nike Golf clothing range, some great colours for 2014. Be the first to be seen wearing it.

Tour news

After telling the World he, not Adam Scott, was a top five player in the world, Patrick Reed had the pleasure of watching Adam Scott demolish Bay Hill on the first 2 days. Paired together, Reed watched the Aussie pin up shoot 62 in the opening round to both lap the field and embarrass the American (if that’s at all possible). He nudged further ahead with a 68, but somehow lost a 7 shot led by midway on Sunday and with some pretty ordinary putting on the back nine managed to complete a total collapse and not even finish in the top three!

So much for my pick, Justin Rose. He too played alongside Scott. Watching Scott make light work of Arnie’s course, the Englishman has much to do if he wants to win that green jacket to go with his US Open of last season.

And what of Tiger? He didn’t even start. His back continues to disrupt his Augusta plans and may not even tee it up. That, I think is probably paper talk, but Tiger doesn't seem to be the threat he was. Can he catch Jack's record? His time maybe coming to a close but wouldn't it be fun come Masters Sunday seeing him, Scott ,Phil, Rosie, Rory, etc all having a shoot out round the back nine? Would I include Reed in that top 5? I don’t think so. Sorry Patrick.

Putting passion into your past time
Old shoes can be just as costly as wrong equipment

Worn golf shoes are dangerous, quite literally. Not only do you risk taking a tumble with tatty shoes, but with balance compromised, what chance does your swing have? You could be nicely fitted for the best clubs but with traction a problem that could all be in vain.
