Greetings from Maurice Campbell
Leighton Buzzard Golf Club - Golf Director

Greetings golfers,

If you have managed to play golf this week, I hope have enjoyed your game.

Captains Cup

Last weekend the Captains Cup competition was played with Pete Burgoyne and Derek Lindley winning on the Saturday with 48 points ahead of the pairings of Andy Vale/Terry Dell and Dave Hanley/Steve Molyneaux, who both scored 45 points.

On Sunday Chris Yirrell and Simon Goodall scored 45 points to beat our Captain Steve Leng and Vice Captain Adrian Stephenson by 1 point. The winners of each day will now play each other to decide an overall winner.

This weekend is the first Medal competition of the year being played on Saturday, with a large entry, hopefully the scoring will be just as good.

Here's a nice joke regarding the optimism of a player before their first Medal of the year.

Guy gets on the 1st tee. A voice tells him "hit a new Pro V, start as you mean to go on". The guy takes a practice swing. The voice comes back, "Never mind, hit a range ball".

Padraig Harrington got back into the winners circle last weekend, after many years. It was nice to see a lot of Europeans playing well. Please click here to see him demonstrating good basic short game skills.

Playing the 10th Hole

The key to playing the 10th hole is getting the ball onto the right half of the fairway from the tee. This gives you a clear straight shot to the green. When teeing off you have the choice of either playing from the right side of the tee box, this helps straighten the hole slightly, or by teeing off the left it enables you to hit away from the left side of the hole. The second shot brings a sharp drop off on the right side of the green and trees behind the green. If possible favouring the left half of the green is ideal hopefully taking the trouble out of play, also taking a club where you know you cannot go over the green will help. So playing for the front left of the green will give a good chance of a couple of putts and get rid of a possible high score by going long or right of the green.

I hope you enjoy the rest of the articles in this week's newsletter
