Titleist 4 for 3 - save £39.99
Greetings from Rob McNicholas
Saffron Walden Golf Club - PGA Golf Professional

Hello and welcome to this week's newsletter.

The course has come across unscathed with the strong winds that we have had over the past week unlike people's scores in last Sunday's stableford which was won with 35 points by Ed Welch. This was a very good score considering that there were reports of balls moving on the greens in the afternoon due to the high winds.

The day before saw Kieran and I have our first Captain/Pro challenge and we wish we had opted for an earlier tee time. Playing later in the afternoon we were undone on the back 9 by the wind, lack of sleep for 6 weeks and a heavy day with the COB's at Woburn the day before. We reached the turn in 21 points, which included an eagle on 9, having left many putts out there, we thought we would storm the back 9 only to stumble in with a further 15 points. The day was won by Sam Yates and James Vallins with 41 points.

Impostor news

A bizarre thing occurred in the Pro shop this week where 4 dozen Pro V1x's turned up with my name on them. As I play normal Pro V1's and have already had my allocation for the year from Titleist, Cam was surprised to see them here.

After some investigating we found out who ordered them and tried to get the order corrected with their name on them. It turns out that the order was actually correct and a member likes the 4 for 3 offer from Titleist but is sick of having his balls returned to him by a certain member and told he can't have them back.

So if you do find a ball on the course with my name on it, it's actually not mine. Having been brought up in the north, I'm too tight to loose balls, however I do know who they belong to. On the other hand if you find normal Pro V's with RM on them and they are still in good condition I will have it back.

David Watts Away Day

The "fourth" David Watts Away Day, will held again at Wellingborough on Wednesday, 24 June, with 40 members participating in this annual four better ball event.

Started in 2011, this annual away seeks to remember past Captain David Watts and his contributions to the welfare of the club

Last year after a keenly fought competition Mike Gebbie and Mike Price triumphed.

Talk to a member of the pro shop staff if you are interested in getting involved this year.

This week I would like to post a message from a couple of our members Graham and Melissa Jones:

My mother in law, who died just before Christmas, was a remarkable women and golf was one of her passions. She played for over 70 years and in that time she won all the club competitions available to her. She was Lady Captain three times, and also Captain of North Wales. She last played when she was 90, walking round her beloved St Melyd course. She was also a founder of St Kentigern's, a hospice in St Asaph. Every year their members organise a fundraising activity and this year, to celebrate their 20th anniversary, are organising a trip to China to walk The Great Wall.

In her memory I will be joining them and in the last week in May hope to visit seven sections of The Wall, walking up to eight hours a day and covering over one hundred miles. It is my aim to raise £3000 so that the hospice, which runs entirely on public donations, can continue its excellent work.

Several members have already kindly offered to contribute, my thanks to them and to anyone else who might donate. To make a donation please click here.

Very many thanks,

Graham and Melissa Jones

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...
