Greetings from Rob McNicholas
Saffron Walden Golf Club - PGA Golf Professional

Hello and welcome to this week's newsletter.

This week I have actually managed to get out and play a couple of games, the first of which was a real treat. On Monday I teamed up with Tony Brown, Nigel and Andy Claydon to play in the after the world match play tournament at the London Club. The course is in incredible condition, the rough was long, fairways like carpets and the greens as slick as I've played on I a long time. They had also left the flags in the same positions as Stenson and Illonen had played in the final.


We started well as a team getting to 10 under better ball through 8 holes, but sadly couldn't keep it going finishing on a respectable -11, 3 shots off the prizes. I did manage to pick up a nearest the pin, and in another group Paula Munns won the longest drive. A big thank you to David Munns for inviting me to the event and Volvo for looking after us on the day, there really was no stone left unturned by them and they certainly achieved the wow factor. Thanks also to my team for a great day.


My second round this week was also a great of sorts as Wednesday saw the return of the Slade. As many of you know the idea is not to win or come last in the Slade as one is expensive and the other is abusive. I was drawn to play with this year's captain Ron Rushforth, king of the Wednesdays, and our playing partners were Derek Clarke and Nick Wombwell. We got off to a flyer and were 3 under through 4 holes, thinking we'd done enough to avoid last place my partner seemed to down tools at this point and was quite content for me to the work.

I managed to get us to 39 points through 16 holes by which stage Ron was in panic mode wondering how he was going to explain winning on his first outing as captain and that he may have to stop off at the cash point on the way home. Luckily his prayers were answered as he tapped in for his standard 7 and I three putted the 17th for a blob, and having only a par on 18 we finished with 41 points. Fortunately for us Price and Porter had a storming round and managed 42 points so beers on them. Propping the field up and winners of the PPPP were Trevor Rowlanson and Raf.


With just over 60 days or so to go until Christmas we know those of you who like to be organised will already be ticking items off the list. Is there something you'd like though? We're sure you have one or two 'golf wants' so why not forward our details on to your wife/husband/friend. With our details they can get in touch with our golf team and maybe we can organise that golf GPS, new trolley, or set of lessons you're after, all the while keeping things nice and discreet. All part of the service!

Club News
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...
