Greetings from Maurice Campbell
Leighton Buzzard Golf Club - PGA Golf Professional

Philip Spratt-Callaghan made his first appearance in a competition for senior players last week and has walked away with the title after out-shooting rivals. Philip became a member of Leighton's Senior section last year when he reached the age of 55, but was not available to take part in the Ian Mann and other competitions. But he booked his place this time around, and last week carded a gross 77, the best scratch score of the 50-plus players, to receive the Ian Mann trophy from the man who donated the trophy.

Phil, has been a member for 11 years, had his handicap cut by a shot to nine. The next best gross score was by John Tarbox, whose 80 put Harry Adam into third place. 

The Handicap trophy was won by Tom Davis, whose nett 68 was a shot clear of John Tarbox with Chris Ive and Kelvin Young heading a chasing pack. Tom has been a member of the club for 30 years, has his handicap cut by a shot to 16.

Former club President Gordon Francis won the Over 80s competition with 26pts scored over nine holes; David Roffe claimed the Over 70s top spot with a nett 71 and Paul Johnson won the putting competition with just 26 strokes in his gross 89 hits of the day.

There was some hot scoring in the Saturday & Sunday medals last weekend. On Saturday Adrian Stepheson won on count back from Sam Messenger with both scoring a nett 66. Third spot was taken with a nett 67 by Mick Cox.

On Sunday Colin McLeod won with a nett 65 with Terry Jordan finishing second with a nett 66. In third spot was Scott Douglas on count back from Mark Hammond with both scoring a nett 67. Well done to you all.

How to choose the correct golf ball for you

There are two different chains of thought when it comes to playing the right ball. Firstly are you looking for distance or looking for control around the green. As far as I am concerned, control around the green is far more important than looking for an extra few yards in distance. Good scores can be made through being able to control the ball from near the green even if you are having an off day with the long shots. 

All manufacturers make hard and soft balls, it is down to the individual as to which ball they play. Some prefer the hard click of a distance ball, others would rather have the feel of a softer covered ball, giving themselves more confidence around the green, knowing that if they strike the ball correctly it will spin more, making it more controllable. 

I personally play with a high spinning ball so I can stop it quickly on the greens.

Callaway Mack Daddy 2 Tour Grind wedges

Opening the face of your wedge adds loft, so is a great option when you need quick height. But take your grip after you’ve opened the face, not before… and use a wedge like Callaway’s Mack Daddy 2 Tour Grind. The sole shape lets you open the face while keeping the leading edge tight to the turf.
