Greetings from David Wood
Orsett Golf Club - PGA Golf Professional

Life lites up at Orsett...

Club Captain, Graham Button laid on glorious weather for his Charity Day last weekend. With 116 players taking part it stood to be good news for Lifelites, the chosen option. With numerous events being held during the round itself no one could say it wasn`t entertaining.

Winners on the day were "we are getting slaughtered", pretty apt team name as team superstar Dan Clark (44 points with a blob) made full use of all the drink stops on the way round. The rest of the team were, Stuart Ince, Rob Slaughter and Gary Gutteridge who helped in the 99 points total. Here they are with Captain Graham Button with their prize.


Yellow ball winners were "Howards Way", Howard Smith, Ash Mahmood, Jon Berry and Graham McLean.

Somehow they won the best dressed golfers too. Clearly the selectors never got out to the 12th tee!! Nearest the flags and nearest the wiggly line was a Chris Thoroughgood "fest" as he won 3 of the 5 available.


Other winners were Pete Dreher and a special mention to Dawn Buttle who won the Hickory Challenge on No 12. Her prize was a meal for two at the Boatyard, Leigh on sea. Here's the swing that hit the shot to just 10 inches! Husband Richard was looking worried at one point as the ball rolled up to the hole.

Just through fines, drinks and challenges during the round, a sum of £1265.00 was raised with more to be added yet. A great effort people thanks very much.

Seniors denied...

"Always was going to be a tough game" lamented David Wright against a determined Romford senior team. With a place in the quarterfinals at stake the match was as close as all expected .5-5 with one match out on the course and Orsett just ahead with 4 holes to play. Unfortunately the match turned on the 16th with a lost ball and so were the hopes of the home team. The Romford anchor man hung in and got over the line on the very last green.

A delighted Romford team Captain was gracious in victory, praising the opposition and the course. "It`s a shame someone had to lose but it`s why we still enter these events. I hope we can do justice now and continue right on to the final" Orsett players were down beat, "it's never easy to lose at home, but it happens. We will just have to go again next year." The defeat just leaves the men`s Thornton Cup side to fly the flag in County team events this year. This weekend is the County Championship, we have numerous people playing, and good luck to them one and all. 

No Limits for David

David Stitson Jnr put his new PING G30 driver to good use in the recent Limit Cup. David has just recently joined Orsett after a playing cricket to high level for many seasons. His winning score of 5 up gave him a comfortable win over runners up John Martin and Steve Benn on 3 up respectively. His handicap has been suitably adjusted in the correct direction

Well played David, keep up the good play.

Keep a look out for The Open sweepstake. It`s now available in the shop. Pop in and pick some numbers from the start sheet. With many more prizes to win than ever, it will add a little extra interest knowing your £5.00 is pinned on a players shoulders.

Thinking of buying some Mizuno irons? How about 4 weeks free golf insurance for doing so?

St Andrews will be Tom Watson's final Open appearance. He won 5 Opens, none at St Andrews, thanks to Seve in 1984, who birdied the last only for my girlfriend at the time to walk in to the TV room just as he was saluting his winning putt and say "WOW, WHO IS THAT, I need to take up golf!"

Needless to say she didn`t last too long after that. (Mind you she did have a point)

On another note did anyone read about the American golfer who had 3, yes 3 holes in one in the same round? 2 on par 4s and 1 on a par 3.His name, Patrick Wills, 59 years old , read how he did it right here.

Best we all keep practicing!

Play well,

Regards, David
