Lady Captains Drive In

It was a fun affair with Angela Samuels driving in as our Ladies Captain. The theme was Mary Poppins as Angela has worked with children over the years. Angela is a competitive golfer and has won many trophies over the years. I am sure she will want to continue that trend for many years to come. She will have a lot of golf to play in 2016 playing Club matches and competitions alike. I know she will be ably supported by her Vice-Captain Avril Simpson

The rouse the Ladies put on Angela was magnificent and if that is anything to go by then I know they will have a lot of fun throughout the year. From all of us in the Pro Shop we wish well for your year. 

The competition was played on the day with Angela wearing her Mary Poppins outfit and some of the other Ladies wearing their suffragette outfits. I thought those outfits were quite fitting as New Zealand was the first country to give Women the vote. First place in the competition went to Margaret Browning with 35pts, in second place on a countback was Jackie Phelps with 34pts and Leslie Brazier won a bottle of Champagne for her prediction of where Angela's drive would finish.

Pros news 

Preparation is the key..

Sometimes you think the golfing gods are against you, usually when you play a monthly medal or any other competition because it seems to be then that your ball ends up in some very strange positions that never happen when you're playing a friendly. Others do not believe in these golfing gods and just put it down to bad preparation or just a bad swing. There is a saying "Perfect preparation prevents poor performance". This is why all top players look at what they need to work at on a weekly basis and before every round they will stick to a warm up routine that covers all aspects of the game. This gives them the confidence to step onto the first tee knowing they've done their best to prepare for the next 18 holes. They're not spending the first 4 holes wondering where the ball might go.

That said sometimes you just have to think that some people are given a gift that destines them to go onto great things in their chosen field. Click here to see Jack Nicklaus demonstrate how it's done. 

Competition news 

On a blustery Sunday the Mixed Foursomes Turkey Medal took place. In this difficult format it is congratulations to husband and wife duo Eddie and Joyce Young who won with a nett 70.5, in second place were the pair of Phil Eddy and Kate Wright with a nett 73 closely followed by John and Christine Bateman who had a nett 73.5. Joyce is fairly new to the game so the win will be a great boost for her confidence.

The new R&A Rules of Golf book is now available from reception, please pick one up, they are FREE of charge and it's always useful to have a copy in your golf bag.

Tip of the week 

You should be ready to play as soon as it's your turn to play. When on or near the putting green, leave your bags or carts just off the green on the way to the next tee. When the play of a hole has been completed, leave the putting green quickly.
