Leighton Buzzard Golf Club Golf Director
I hope you enjoyed the amazing golf played at Royal Troon as much as I did. Seeing two players playing the game at its highest level is a real treat. One shoots 65 only to be beaten by the other who shoots 63.
To see Henrik Stenson win his first major in such a way is pretty special. It was played in a fantastic sportsman like behaviour and it was all about the quality of golf. As Rory McIlroy put it, they were on a different planet.
In our Open sweepstake it is happy times for Tom Fitzgerald who has picked up £96.00 worth of shop vouchers for his efforts. Others to pick up shop vouchers are Dave Banwell, Jon Dymock, Mike Bluett and Andy McDonald.
Big congratulations go to Dharm Naveen Diwaker who conquered all to win the Presidents Putter competition last Saturday. With a superb nett 64 he beat the three players with nett 67's who were Phil Coumbe, Bryan Bateman and Ian Down. Others to score in the 60's were Peter Taylor and Phil Spratt-Callaghan who had nett 68's and Dave Roberts, Claire Whitecross, Jason Cobb and Carl Peck who all managed nett 69's. Other prize winners were Ben Irvine who was nearest the pin in two shots on the 18th hole and Dave Banwell was nearest the line on the 5th hole.

Danny Nairne was top individual scorer with 37 points in the annual Rhys Richards Trophy competition won by host club Aspley Guise and along with club colleague David Debell, also won nearest-the-pin awards, while former Captain Brian Carter finished joint runner-up in the Bedfordshire Captains summer meeting at Beds & County….and also won a nearest the pin prize for good measure.
Elaine Powell was top scorer in the Ladies July stableford, her 40 points winning the Bronze A division with Paula Cox runner-up. Jane Tizzard won the Bronze B award on countback with 33 points from Chris Bateman, while Debbie Pollard-Barns claimed the Silver Division top spot with 39 points, three clear of Judy Ammon.
Many of you took advantage of our 1 day SALE last Saturday, getting good discounts on a variety of products and the day was a great success. We'll keep you all posted for when we have another one.
We are now taking entries for the Leighton Buzzard Pro-Am. It is taking place on Wednesday 17th August. With the golf course playing so well it is a great opportunity to compete with a Professional in a day where you play for some fantastic prizes. It is a comfortable format with the two best scores out of four counting and you get to play with some of the best PGA Professional golfers in the area.
Our goal is to get to 40 teams this year and we require your support to do this. If you would like to enter a team please click here to register your interest. It truly is a great day at the Club.
Have you checked out the golf warm up on my website? It was put together by the best physio I have ever worked with and that is Diana O'Reilly. Diana has worked with world leaders in golf physiotherapy to hone her skills. She provides a fantastic service and she is one of the reasons I am still able to play golf. Her golf warm up is excellent and will help you get prepared for your game.
