Greetings from David Wood
Orsett Golf Club - PGA Golf Professional

"We can get there"

That was the belief of the Orsett Thornton Cup squad after losing last weekend in the quarter finals to Boyce Hill. All the players and current team Captain Graham Button believe they will have what it takes next season to go on and reach the final.

"I`m so proud of how our team has performed this season Graham said .We wanted a good team spirit which we achieved with our bonding evenings and it has helped our play with all the team supporting each other and have fun on the way. I've had so many people say 'thank you' since last weekend it has been a privilege to be with the team putting all their time and effort in to each match. A extra thank you to Steve Rooney for being Vice Captain and helping me make those all important decisions"

Sadly the match turned early with Orsett up in all games after 9 holes in the foursomes but only managing to gain a point by lunch.

"With tough opponents a 4 point deficit was always going to be difficult and the gamble of going out strong at the top to win early matches didn`t get the results we needed. Fair play to Boyce they were better than us on the day, good luck to them in the semi-final. Places for the team will be even tougher next year as some of the younger Club members are constantly improving which can only be good for both the team and the Club as a whole."

Great effort boys, next year could be really brilliant.

Crown Issa …the short game wizard

Issa Pooloo has been returning to form over the last few weeks and topped it all with a win in the Coronation Cup last weekend. A 73, net 67 saw Issa, known for having the best short game at Orsett win on count back from unfortunate Richard Buttle who also enjoyed the good weather for a 67 and further handicap reduction.3rd was George Carroll on a nett 69 Madge as he`s known to his sweep, nipped Jack Shiner for that on count back as well. Lots of good scores in ideal conditions at last. Well done to all the field with so many getting under par.

We are having a mini sale at the moment .Some great hard ware at hugely reduced prices .Why not grab a bargain 25% off the price, take a look next time you're in the shop. It might make all the difference to your game.


Open joy for Perc Junior…

Will Percival pictured was elated Zach Johnson won the Open last week at St Andrews. The Cadet Captain's dad had drawn Johnson in the shop sweep and put Wills name in the box. As you can see from the photo he is ecstatic with his win.(actually he pinched my phone, took a selfie thinking it was someone else's but had no time remove the pictures and here's the evidence!) Revenge is so sweet, Will!

Runner up in the shop sweep was Darren Wickens with Oosthuizen and Richard Bailey who drew Marc Leishman. Steve Harvey and Norman Morgan looked good to join the play off but finished joint 4th on Spieth and Day respectively.

Dan Vaughan won on the low Amateur, Neibrugge.

All other winners have been posted on the notice board. Many thanks to all who entered, well done to all the winners and for those who missed out, as I said before, you snooze, you lose!

Could it have been more exciting?

The Open at St Andrews lived up to all its excitement with a playoff win to close for American Zach Johnson. The weather tried so hard to ruin the spectacle at the home of golf, the superstars complained about having to play in the wind, although the constant "fame seekers" shouting out just after impact throughout the event is getting pretty tiring especially the idiot who shouted in the middle of Spieth's swing on the last on Monday. When are the Stewards going to get them removed? It surely only takes one culprit to be asked to leave and others just might stop?

Keep golfing!
