Greetings from Rob McNicholas

SWGC scratch team reached top spot in the CAGU Div 1 scratch league after beating Girton 5-1 at the Windmill club last week.

Scratch TeamRichard Southall and Cam Brown played blistering golf to beat Chris Cooke and Lee 9up.Whenever the Girton pairing made par, the Walden pairing made birdie and when they made a bogey the walden boys made par, to push through the convincing win. It is now 4 out of 4 wins for the boys who look irresistible.

Mark Reeve and Olly Tuck delivered another masterclass performance in beating Taite and Cowie 6 up.Full of banter they raced through 17 holes in 4 under par, only to bogey the last two for a 6up win.

In the third pair, Duggan and Goodfellow played some impressive golf against Giblett and Zac Cooke knocking in 5 birdies over the first 12 holes to be 3 up. But several errors off the tee and on the green then proved costly and the pair found themselves all square on 17. A regulation par down the last meant the game finished all square but, having looked comfortable for another win a few holes earlier, it felt like a point lost rather than gained for Walden.

Scratch captain Graham Goodman said, "It is a great position to be in at the break having been promoted and winning the Goddard Cup last year. The momentum is being carried through and we have a belief in ourselves. The next fixtures home to Newmarket and the remaining 3 away fixtures will see how good we are. It is going to be exciting."

Ladies TeamThe ladies Jean Wilkinson team achieved another great result at their away match against Bourn on Sunday 8th June. Janina Jones, Vilma Krinks, Vivienne Dondi, Sue Gunter, Kiyoko McLellan, Elaine Purcell and Sue Ward won by 9 points to 5. 

Saffron Walden have now qualified for the semi-finals / finals, to be held at Menzies Golf Club on Wednesday 24th September with a game in hand!

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...

Use the 'tee drill' to groove a powerful strike

Last week we looked at how brands are creating irons that offer more distance than ever before. With a 9-iron in your hands, as opposed to a 7-iron, we're talking more looks at birdies - so long as your ball-striking is sound. So, here's a drill to help you deliver cleaner, more powerful strikes...
