With just over a week to go before Christmas lots of people are getting into the Christmas spirit with trees popping up all over the place. I am nearly there, but I feel like I need a bit of cold weather to really get into the spirit! You may have noticed that I have not mentioned the 'white stuff'....certainly don't want any of that!
My diary is a little less full this week, which gives me a great chance to play a bit of golf. This Friday sees the Hornsea annual Christmas Shotgun Am Am in which I am teaming up with Dave Hill, John Bickerdike and fellow professional and former Hornsea member Rich Pace. I am very much looking forward to it and I will give you a full report in next weeks blog.
The big news in the golfing world this week was the announcement that in 2022 The Ryder Cup will be held in Rome. I think this is a great move as it shows that The Ryder Cup should be spread throughout Europe, after all Europe has been competing for the trophy since 1979. For too long The Ryder Cup had been held in and around the UK, but there are some amazing golf courses in Europe and it will be great to see them. With the 2018 and 2022 being played in France and Italy respectively I am sure the profile of golf in these countries will only increase.
On Sunday evening I had the pleasure of attending the Hornsea presentation evening where all the winners gathered to collect their trophies from this years competitions. Whilst it was great to see so many of my pupils collect prizes I was especially proud of all the Juniors that were there. This year we have seen so many of them improve with the likes of Robbie Rix and Albert Anderson reducing their handicaps down to the low 20's and Sam Hancock winning the most improved player. Well done to all the Juniors this year, it has been a privilege to see them progress. A quick message to all the adult members...watch out, these Juniors are going to be winning your competitions next year! Click on the gallery to the right to see some of the pictures.
