It's certainly not a bad thing, but the dust has been slow to settle after the first major of the year. I find that I am still having lots of conversations with people about Danny Willett’s great golf and Jordan Spieth's poor finish, giving England its first Masters win for 20 years. I am sure that it helps that he is from Yorkshire and that his post Masters holiday destination of choice was Scarborough!
I am sure you will have seen through my various social media outlets, and through Stretton's weekly newsletter, that I am a trying to get a group together to go and watch Danny Willett defend his crown. I have recently spoken to Mick Russell about his trip; he could not put into words how magical the place is and could only say you have to go to believe it. So far, for this once in a lifetime trip I have got the following details:
Play golf Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday
Watch the Masters Wednesday, Friday and Sunday
Depart Monday 10th April
We will be staying in a private house, which is just 10 minutes away from the course, making Augusta National extremely accessible. Each person will have their own room for extra privacy which makes it better for the snorers amongst you! Please click here to have a look at the type of house we will have. I am sure you will all agree they look perfect for a trip like this!

This Friday sees the last of my group lessons (driving), and if you have missed them, do not despair as I have got some more dates starting the following week. I have had such a good response to these sessions that I have decided to keep them on a Friday for one more set. After this set I will probably look at doing them on a Monday again in an attempt to cater for the golfers who cannot make a Friday. Please click the pictures for all the information.
Finally I am finding it a shame that so many top players are pulling out of the Olympic games. So far Adam Scott, Vijay Singh, Louis Oosthuizen and Charl Schwartzel have taken the decision not to travel to Rio for a chance to win a gold medal. I can understand Vijay Singh's decision due to his concerns over the Zika virus, but for the other to blame scheduling issues I find that a bit of a poor excuse. The Olympics are held once every 4 years and whilst they may not be a major I would have though representing your country and winning a tournament that is not held very often would appeal to most. What are your thoughts on this?
