Hello and welcome to this week's newsletter. 

 Club news

As you will see form Brandon's report about the Millennium Trophy, last week was a busy week at the club. The senior section run the competition very well and it's nice to see some faces down early playing with them who wouldn't normally be there in the dark. Having a competition that lasts three rounds will always find a deserving champion. Someone who plays consistently all week and this year was no exception.

Talking of playing well consistently, a big congratulations to Mark Reeve. Mark has won the Mid Amateur order of merit after winning the finals day at Hollinwell golf club in Nottingham. Mark is a credit to himself and always represents the club well wherever he plays. His dedication, commitment and quality of golf have been second to none this year and his achievements at club, county and nationally are nothing less than he deserves.

His notable finishes include wins at Old Fold Manor, Royal St Georges, Finals Day at Hollinwell and second place in the Welsh Mid-Am.

Staff news 

Sarah has had another buys week out and about. Here is her latest update:

After round one at Stoke By Nayland I was lying in 62nd place. With few 3 putts out there with tricky to read greens & managed to hit a telephone wire on the 16th, I finished with a 79, +7. 

Round 2, I finished with the same score. I felt as though I played better but the greens were still tough and there were no birdies, even though I had lots of attempts! 

I didn't make the cut but finished in 74th place out of 96, which has beaten the last two years I've played so I'm happy! Thank you to everyone for supporting me, especially those who came and watched! 

My next event is Thetford Pro Am on the 22nd October with Callum Brookes.

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...
