Greetings golfers, 

Adrian Stephenson is now the Captain at Leighton Buzzard golf club and I wish him all the best for the coming year, I'm sure it will be a lot of fun. On Sunday he was driven to the first tee dressed as JR Ewing in an open-top Mercedes to the strains of the hit television series Dallas accompanied by his on-screen wife Sue Ellen. 

Adrian's Vice Captain John Smith drummed up support from a handful of club colleagues to ensure his year got off to a great start. The role of Sue Ellen, Hagman's alcoholic wife in the Southfork-based series, was played by myself with a supporting cast of club members and the Merc supplied by former Ladies Captain Rosie Hartnell.

Adrian, 51, set up his own oil supply-and-recovery business, Southern Oils, 16 years ago having worked for many years with his late father Douglas and mother Rita in various capacities at the town's former Gossard ladies clothing factory. 

Sunday's drive-in was watched by around 160 Leighton club members including partner Tracy and children Naomi, Eddie and George

Adrian, a nine-handicap golfer, was presented with his Captain's brown-jacket by outgoing skipper and long-time friend Steve Leng. Steve revealed on Friday that he and ladies Captain Debbie Pollard Barns raised over £20,000 last year for their joint charity, Keech Cottage


Adrian and Steve packed down for Leighton rugby third team for a decade before switching to play cricket and then golf. Steve was ceremoniously thrown-out on Saturday, following Friday's club AGM when Simon Rossiter, Margaret Browning and Graham Freer were elected members of the club management committee. 

During his year in office, Ada and Ladies Captain Angela Samuels, who also teed-off on Sunday with Seniors Captain Robbie John and Junior Captain Tim Martin, will be raising money to help multiple sclerosis suffers and rheumatoid arthritis research. Fund raising got off to a flying start with over £1,000 raised during Sunday's drive-in activities. 

The drive-in golf competition was won by Martin King, scoring 37 points using just two clubs and a putter for his first trophy win since joining the club over two years ago. 

John Latimer
and Andy Jones were runner-up with 36 points.

Tour news 

Someone else who has had a great start to his year is Jordan Spieth. It looks like the others are going to have to play some awesome golf if they are going to topple him from the World no.1 spot. He just won the Hyundai Tournament of Champions by 8 shots. The thing is when he does hit a bad shot his short game is so good he can still save par, something all of us should think about when trying to shoot lower scores. If you analyse your scores see many times you got the ball up and down from near the edge of the green and you may well see that you could have saved yourself a handful of shots if your short game was better.

Tip of the week 

Be efficient on the putting green 

Mark your ball and lift and clean it when you arrive at the putting green so you will be ready to replace it when it is your turn to play. You can usually line up your putt while others are putting, without disturbing them. Leave your clubs on the side of the putting green closest to the next tee, and leave the green promptly after holing out. Wait until the next tee to record your score.
