We had another Junior League match this Sunday just gone against Bourn Golf Club at home. The team was made from 4 of the higher handicapped juniors - James Hamilton, Will McKernan, Alex Sparrow & Leo Bonser. Some great golf was played resulting in a half!
The British Legion B team have their second round scheduled this Saturday away at The Burstead Golf Club. Good Luck to them.
This is closely followed by the St Ives Cup next weekend played at home against Brampton Park for our Junior Team.
Brownies Visit Saffron Walden..
Sarah has been busy delivering a 4 week Tri Golf programme to Sawston Brownies over the last month. 3 of the weeks going to the Brownies home at the Sawston Village College, and on the 4th week the programme ended with the 27 girls coming to the Golf Club to try real golf!
All the girls loved trying a new sport and Sam the leader thought, 'it was a great experience and something they'd never thought of trying with the girls!'
The best part about delivering the programme was the girls all learnt something new and gained their Sports Badge.
The Morrow Trophy
Saffron Walden Golf Club this Sunday saw a large field compete in glorious weather for the prestigious Morrow Trophy. This was presented to the club in 2008 by Lady Morrow, commemorating her late husband's great grandfather, "Old Tom Morris" winner of 4 Open Championships in the 19th century, on the centenary of his death.
The leaders in the club house until the very last minute, were Spencer Burlingham, Paul Swatton, Damian Alltree and Callum Brookes who dove tailed well and played consistently to gain 87 points. However the final team of the day, Roger and Vilma Krinks, David and Lynda Minton, scored 88 points, including 8 birdies and an eagle at the par 4 14th, when Minton chipped in after a long, accurate drive.
Conditions were not so favourable on Tuesday, when consistent driving rain decimated the entries to the Club qualifying round for the national PING 4BBB.
Of the 11 pairs that braved the weather a number failed to finish. Kiyoko McLellan and Maggie Fenton returned a brave 35 points, winning on count back from Melissa Jones and Pat Clarke.
One of our very own members Philip Davis was at TPC Sawgrass to observe Jason Day's performance, and he was hugely impressed with the quality of both the course and the professionals.
Here are just a couple of images from his travels.
So, another weekend, another win for Australia's Jason Day, who cruised to a four-stroke victory at Sawgrass to take golf's unofficial 'fifth Major' - the Players Championship.
We say 'cruised' but that doesn't necessarily tell the full story. Despite reaching the halfway point in a record 129 blows, it was tough going thereafter with the world number one even treating us to a few duffed chips and a four-putt.
However, the 28-year-old was not to be denied, and reminded everyone of his class and mental toughness when he completed the back nine in 33, just when he was starting to look vulnerable. Remind you of anyone?
Ah yes, Tiger Woods, who's been back in the news this week after attending Congressional Country Club for the Quicken Loans National media day.
As part of a promotional stunt for a charitable effort from his tournament's title sponsor, he took to the tee on the par-3 10th - and dunked three efforts into the water.
It would appear Woods is still a long way off making a competitive return to action. For now, all we can do is sit back and enjoy the Jason Day Show - there would seem to be a few more of them on the way. It's now seven wins in 17 starts by the way, impressive stuff.
