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

Hello and welcome to this weeks newsletter. 

Finally the golfing season is upon us and the Masters is only a few weeks away. Our competitions are getting under way at the club and last weekend was the first 4BBB which attracted a good field early in the season.

Showing no signs of winter rust or the stress of having to meet deadlines to build a house for a growing family were Simon King and Damien Alltree with 44 points.

Walden golfers deliver for Cambridgeshire

Sunday, 8 March saw Cambridgeshire host Essex in the annual event to compete for the David Hall trophy at Saffron Walden Golf Club. Essex fielded a youthful side which contained many players who helped them win the English youth finals in 2014.

Cambridge got off to an awful start losing the first three matches of the morning session, but pulled it back winning the last two of the foursomes matches to make it 2-3 to Essex at lunch. The afternoon singles matches got under way with Essex taking the 1st point but local player and county vice- captain Mark Reeve responded quickly for Cambridge winning his match 3&1 going round in 2 under par.

Essex were looking in control at that point and were 6-3 up until immediate past captain Owen Davies beat Essex captain Ross Dee on the last hole. Danny Loveday also turned his match around at the death to win on the last making the score 5-6 to Essex.

Essex took the next point but Cambridge responded again with James Reason of Brampton and local player Tom Duggan winning comfortably at the back winning 3&2. This was two points out of two for the inform Duggan.


With the match tied at 7-7 it came down Dave Quinney of Gog Magog golf club who was 1 down with 2 holes remaining, he won 17 with a par , so the match was poised nicely, everything dead level with the last tricky par 3 to play. After the tee shots it was advantage Essex again as Dave faced an extremely quick chip from just left of the green and on the green with an uphill putt, but he was up to the task playing the chip brilliantly to leave himself a 4ft putt up the hill for par, which he duly holed, Essex two putted which meant the match was a tie and the trophy was shared, 7.5 -7.5.

Cambridgeshire remain unbeaten pre season under incoming captain Owen Cousins and face Bedfordshire next on March 22nd at Dunstable Downs, before the East Anglian League gets under way.

On Sunday we held our first junior roll up of the season. As I mentioned last week in the newsletter we are aiming to get more of the younger and newer members out on to the course. I'm delighted to say that we had a turnout of 20 players. 6 players competed for the 18 hole prize which was won by Jacob Gamble with a nett 69. The 9 hole competition was won by Harvey Redfearne with a brilliant 27 points, and for the first time we had an all girls competition which was won by Kate Burton with 22 points.

Well done to all for getting involved, the next junior competition is the Easter Trophies on Sunday, 5 April.

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...
