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

Hello and welcome to this week's newsletter. 

Club news 

This week has seen some glorious early autumn sunshine beaming down over the golf course. This was much appreciated when 30 of us visited Forest Pines last weekend for the Captains away trip. Those of you who have played there will know what a good test of golf it is, and so it proved to be for most last weekend.

The first day we played the Beeches and Pines courses and the golf was closely fought with scores ranging from 31 to 40 points with most finding themselves somewhere in-between. Not surprisingly, last year's winner Gordon Plumb was at the top of the leaderboard. From the Captain's and my point of view, much like the day before in the club challenge, ball striking wasn't an issue but getting it down the hole was. 

As we had an early tee time the following morning, the plan was for everyone to trott off to bed early so that they were feeling as fresh as a daisy ready for the challenge ahead. I was going to lead by example having arranged to meet my parents for a coffee at 8.30am. How the best laid plans can fail. Looking at everyone over breakfast it appeared that this had not happened. I awoke to my roommate Nick questioning who hadn't shut the curtains, whose drink was that on the side, and why did he have a half-eaten biscuit stuck to his arm? All of the fingers pointed to him. 

When everyone finally surfaced and made it to the first tee, we were again greeted with another glorious day's sunshine. This time the swings were not quite as flowing as the day before, but the scoring was still good. We played the Beeches and the Forest course, the Forest set of 9 been arguably the best out of the lot. As you will detect from the pictures, the bookies favourite Gordon Plumb came out on top with 82 points with Jeremy Taylor and Mark Harvey coming second and third respectively. It was great testament to Jeremy's and Mark's stamina having dutifully stayed up late to make sure that the bar was empty, all drinks had been finished and everyone made it to bed safely. Thank you to everyone who made the trip, it was enjoyable and good to see everyone enjoying themselves in the evening and a special thanks to Kieran for organising it. 

We look forward to seeing what Chris has in store for next year.



Thought of the week

Money Money Money! 

So, there you have it: Jordan Spieth shoots a final-round 69 to win the Tour Championship in Atlanta, earning £7.5m by also securing victory in the FedEx Cup. Nice work if you can get it! Given Spieth won the first two Majors of the season, you'd have to say the best man won, right? But what about Jason Day? Maybe you're not that fussed and the FedEx Cup doesn't really do it for you. All valid talking points right now. 

You might not ever find yourself playing for millions of dollar, but we would like to help you walk away with your playing partners' money - and we're not talking outright theft from their golf bag. 

It looks like we could be fortunate with an Indian Summer and whilst the sun's still shining then we urge you to get out and play, there's still a lot to look forward to. One way of improving your chances in the next Medal, or Stableford, is to come and see us for a lesson. Whether you're a single figure golfer or 20-handicapper, let's take a look at your swing and help you to take the money this weekend.

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...
