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

Hello and welcome to this week's newsletter.

Competitions are coming thick and fast, last week's 4bbb was won by the pairing of Graham Smith and Richard Negus on count back from Melvyn Collins and Michael Holland with 40 points.

This weekend will see Kieran and myself making our debut as a pairing in a competition against the club in a 4BBB competition. If last year is anything to go by he will have a lot to live up to as in the first one Mark Jones and I were only beaten by one pair, (we'll not mention the second one of the year where Mark wasn't 100% fit!) I'm sure we will have many challenges tomorrow, I just hope the weather holds out for us.

Saffron Walden win again!!!

Cambridge Evening News Trophy At Cambridge Meridian on Saturday, 21 March

Members Jay Magan and Steve Plumb represented the Club after pre-qualifying in the annual competition in 2014. Having been drawn against Old Nene in the first round at Gog Magog they were victorious after winning their foursomes matchplay at the second extra hole having been four down with five to play.

Barkway was the venue for the next round in high winds on a very open and demanding course, although the weather remained dry, the damp fairways and 20 mph winds made it very tough going. However the Walden pair coped far better with the conditions by winning 6 and 5 against a Bourn pairing receiving four shots. This win qualified the pairing to attend the finals day at Cambridge Meridian last Saturday.

A dry and very cold windy day saw eight pairs from qualifying matches in the knock-out matchplay stages contest 36 holes of foursomes medal. In the morning Magan and Plumb started shakily with many dropped shots in the harsh conditions playing with the family partnership of Neal and Chris Cooke from Girton who scored a very respectable nett 76 to lead at the halfway stage. Walden were unfortunately off the pace with a nett 82.5

With nothing to lose and possibly only hoping to beat the morning roundm Magan and Plumb were more relaxed and started with two straight birdies and played some excellent wind golf in the remainder of the round managing a creditable nett 75.5 However the Cooke's faired less well in the pm session and were tied with two other pairs on 158, one of which was Saffron Walden.

Sudden death knockout ensued with one team dropping out at the first extra hole leaving Chris and Neal Cooke to fight it out with Magan and Plumb. With another very good drive and a putt to 2 feet Magan finished them off and gave Saffron Walden the victory and the silver Cambridge Evening News Rose Bowl.

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...
