Men’s Midweek Stableford
The weather was again unkind for Thursday afternoon's Men's Midweek Stableford but that didn't stop Paul Morris romping round in 37 points with Charlie Elliott taking second with 34 points.
Mixed Team Competition
In this year's event, Neil Twogood, Pauline Twogood, Jonathan Blanchard & Caroline Blanchard led the field home as they recorded a very commendable score of 85 points on a very blustery day to win by three points from Jill Dodds, Judy Fitch, Keith Young & Russell Andreas.
Ashridge Mixed versus Woburn Mixed
And on Sunday, Ashridge hosted a mixed match against Woburn and the result was a win for the home team by 4 - 2.
Callaway Demo Day this Saturday
My annual Callaway Golf Demo Day is this Saturday 17th May and I have, this year, a couple of really superb offers. You can now:
I also have an appointment sheet that you can book a specific time with the Callaway golf fitting technician. Each appointment is half an hour long and they will have access to all of this season’s superb equipment, such as the X2 Hot's, the Mack Daddy wedges and the legendary Big Bertha drivers. They will also be able to look after whatever desire you may have whether it be a new driver, a new wedge or a complete overhaul.
So please book an appointment just ASAP because appointments, and time, are both running out! Click here to book now!
Motocaddy and Powakaddy
You may not know but I am now stocking both Motocaddy and Powakaddy electric trolleys. Both companies offer excellent products with two year warranties but their trolleys do look different. However, with lead acid batteries becoming less and less reliable (in my opinion), I am now only selling lithium battery trolleys because this means less aggravation for all involved. Should you need to see any of their products or like to discuss either of these two companies' trolleys, please pop in.
Do you need a new wedge?
If you’re looking for a new wedge or wedges, I have a terrific opportunity for you. I have this week taken delivery of six Titleist Vokey SM5 wedges which are all demo wedges which means you can take these out on the course or the practice area to see which one suits you best. And with these wedges ranging in loft between 50° and 60°, you should be able to cover most areas of short game play. Available in standard chrome, oil can or black heads, this is a great way to find the ideal wedge for your game or chosen shot. Please come in to the Pro Shop for further details or click on the image.
I don’t know about you but the regular “lead-acid” batteries don’t seem to last very long these days, so the answer is simple: a brand new lithium battery. These batteries are so good in so many ways and the benefits over a lead-acid are numerous, such as, they will recharge in about three hours, you will get about five times more life out of a lithium than a lead-acid, they’re more powerful and they’re incredibly light! And at £199.99, they will also come with a brand new charger and a fantastic two year unlimited warranty and a five year limited warranty. So for further details, please pop into the Pro Shop.
R & A and the anchoring debate
And finally this week, if you haven’t already seen the news, I have a link to the R & A website that will allow you to see in pictures, just what they declare “anchoring” is and isn’t. How they’ll enforce it though, is anyone’s guess!
Keep your routine
When under pressure, try to do everything the same. For example, line your ball up the usual way, keep to the same number of practice swings and don't take longer than you would normally. If you do, you'll start to create confusion and doubt and as we all know, that's not where you want to be!
