Scratch Team Start With A 3-3 Draw

Saffron Walden scratch team started their CAGU Divison 1 campaign with a well deserved 3-3 draw away at Links GC, Newmarket.With a strong wind blowing across the racecourse links the Walden team picked up where they left off after last year's unbeaten season.

Olly Tuck and Mark Reeve started off against Crisp and Bowers. With the first few holes being won by each side, the Newmarket pairing then blew the Walden pairing apart with 4 birdies in the remaining holes, and what with Crisp's immense driving and putting, Tuck and Reeve lost 6 down.

Through 9 holes of the matches it looked as though Walden could be heading for a 6-0 drubbing, but then the final Walden pairings produced some really impressive golf. Firstly Richard Southall and Cam Brown showed their experience against Hartley and McQueen, after being two down through 10 they then won the 11th and 12th holes to make it all square. They then fell 1 down with a Hartley birdie at 15. Walden then won 16 to a par. Southall then produced one of the shots of the round with a deft chip by a tree to 3 ft to save par at 17 . The Newmarket pairing could only manage a bogey so Walden went into the 18th 1 up. They then won 18 to win by 2 holes.

In the final pairing, Goodfellow and MacDonald found themselves in a closely fought battle with Parsons and McAllister. Goodfellow was on his game, and with Macdonald's chipping and putting they were 1 up going into the last. Unfortunately Macdonald's drive found the out of bounds and a big drive and good pitch by the Newmarket pair meant the game was halved.

Captain Goodman said " The boys fought hard tonight and to gain a 3-3 draw away at Newmarket was a good start. We now have 4 home games in a row, and with home fixtures a big advantage we have to make them count"

 

The Ladies had a home match against Bourn (Monday 12th May), and managed a great victory by 5 1/2 to 1 1/2 (or 11 points to 3). Great result.

The team in order of play was Elaine, Kiyoko, Barbara, Paula, Marjory, Sue Funston and Viv.

The next match is on Thursday 5th June, at home, against Old Nene.

So you think you're not good enough to be custom-fit?

There's a perception among club golfers that having your clubs tailored to you is the province of the game's elite. The theory usually trotted out goes something along the lines of: "I'm too inconsistent for custom-fitting to benefit me."

The theory holds as much water as a perched links green. Your swing is a lot more consistent than you think, and technology can prove it. On launch monitors all handicap levels show remarkably similar levels of acceleration, clubhead speed, shaft loading and attack path and angle; whatever you think, your swing has a pattern. That perception of inconsistency is a fallacy, based on the fact a tiny change in the clubface's position at impact can create massive differences in ball flight.

But also, custom-fitting doesn't just refine good shots; it can also tame bad ones. That fact alone makes it relevant to all standards of player. So wherever you are in the game, come and talk to us about custom-fitting: it's a simple process… and it will have a profound impact on your game. Click here to send me your thoughts.

Lots of people have asked which swing model they are and how do they know which one will suit them. Here is a straight forward test to see which model will suit your overall flexibility, strength and physical condition. Read more...

Two common faults I often see with a driver set up when teaching are; weight too left sided , and open shoulder alignment. These are both caused by the alteration with the ball position for the driver. As it's moved left in the stance for a right handed player, the weight tends to go with it, and the shoulders open at the same time. Read more...

 
 
Save yourself time and money, go lithium!

Sure, a lithium trolley battery may cost a little more than its lead acid alternative; but Motocaddy lithium lasts five times longer, is a fraction of the weight and recharges much faster. For trolley power, it pays to play the long game.
