Walden bounce back

Saffron Walden Golf Club scratch team bounced back after a season opening defeat to beat Newmarket 4-2 at Windmill Hill.

After the early evening rain disappeared, the Walden boys exhibiting some power golf set about their Newmarket counterparts. Newmarket reversed their order and out first Ryan Adair and Olly Tuck took on Samson and Sharplin. They hit the course with Adair's bludgeoning power and Tuck's deft chipping game. Although not always accurate off the tee, they more than made up with it through their short game and rushed to an impressive 8 up victory.

Southall and Brown then took to the stage and delivered as usual against Hartley and Clough. Early on Hartley kept Newmarket in the game with some brilliant putting and this was matched by Brown. The turning point came on the 13th, when Southall played the shot of the evening slicing a shot over and around a tree from 300 yds that went to 8 ft to which Brown holed for a birdie. This sent them on their way and they won 5 up.

In the last pairing captain Goodman sprinted his way to the course in true Usain Bolt fashion after a late withdrawal and partnered Goodfellow who took on Diambro and Parsons. After impressive golf early on trading birdies with the Newmarket pairing, the Walden boys were 1 up through 13. However bad drives at the 14th, a second shot in the trees on 15th and a drive into the bunker on 16th cost them dearly and they lost 2 down.

In the other match of the evening leaders Brampton Pk could only manage a draw with Ramsey 3-3. Table after 2 rounds with Walden having a game in hand is Brampton Pk 11 Newmarket 9 Ramsey 7 Walden 6 and St Ives 3.

Graham Goodman captain said

"It was great to get back to winning ways after the disappointment last week at Brampton. What with Brampton Pk only drawing with Ramsey this has put us back in the mix. Next week we are away to Ramsey and for this we have the A team out with Reeve, Tuck, Adair, Duggan, Southall and Brown out to get ramseyed.

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...
