Good evening to you all, I hope you have had a good weekend’s golf?
Since I have last written a blog I have had the pleasure of heading to Holme Hall Golf Club in Scunthorpe on the Captains Away day. In the morning we played a 9 hole individual stableford and, despite not knowing the layout of the course, I was quite happy with my 17 points. In the afternoon I teamed up with one half of the Hornsea 150 team, Joe Palmer, and took on the other 23 pairs from the golf club. It turns out that having a couple of pints with our lunch was a mistake as we finished pretty low down the leaderboard. Despite not producing the goods when it mattered we both had a great day and enjoyed the course, the reception we got at Holme Hall and the company we played with – Nathan Wright and Andy Giles, cheers for the game guys.
It only seems a very short time ago that I was writing with excitement about the first major of the year at Augusta. So it is with a heavy heart as I am about to write about the last major of the year. It has been just over three and a half months since Danny Willett donned the Green Jacket of Augusta and won his maiden major. Since then we have had two more first time winners with Dustin Johnson winning the US Open and Henrik Stenson winning the Open. Does this mean that for the first time since 2011 that each major will be held by a first time winner?
Brandt Snedeker - Struggled with injuries last year, just when it looked like he was about to break through and win a big tournament. He has a great demeanour on the course which should allow him to deal with the pressure and he has the ability to putt like nobody’s business! He also has good recent form with a high finish in the Canadian Open.
Tony Finau – Finally, a bit of an outsider, Finau has impressed people with his monstrous hitting which should suit a long course like Baltusrol. However, he has more than just big hitting in his arsenal with a short game that held up very well at The Open. He much prefers playing his golf in America and I think he may feature on the leaderboard.
Junior Summer Camps – The holidays are the perfect time for your child to improve their golf with the return on my Junior Camps. Each session last 3 hours and will cover all aspects of golf, from driving to putting, and from on course to bunkers. As well as technical coaching, I use competitive games that are produced by the Juniors to maximise learning. These camps have proved a real success in the past and I encourage you to book your child in as soon as possible so they do not miss out.
Dates are as follows
Tuesday 9th August 1-4pm
Friday 12th August 1-4pm
Friday 26th August 1-4pm
All sessions include refreshments and I must have a minimum of four children for the session to go ahead
After Work Club – This Wednesday is the last After Work Club session and I am particularly looking forward to it as it is a new session I have introduced. We will be heading out on to the course to look at your course management and see how you perform where it matters…I hope you can join me. I am starting up more sessions until the nights get too dark (cannot believe I am saying that!) with a total of five more sessions. Please see the attached poster for all the dates at topics I will be covering.
