Good evening to you all, what another fantasic week we have had and it really feels like summer has arrived ...lets just hope it lasts another couple of months! I have had a busy week teaching and have been working hard on my golfers tan! Jane and I also did our last walk before our big 3 peaks challenge on the 19th of July; a 20 mile walk from Hessle to Beverley around the Wolds was a great final practice!
You will remember last weeks blog when I wrote about 30 Beavers and Cubs coming to Hornsea in the wind and rain. At the end of last week I received an amazing card from them thanking me for teaching them golf. We may have all finished up very wet and cold, but when you receive things like this, then it makes it all worthwhile!
Over the weekend while the professionals were gearing up for the Open which is only just around the corner, two stories from America have caught my eye. Have you ever made a hole in one? (2500/1 for a professional) Are you one of the few who have had two hole in ones? (6250000/1 for a Professional) Or how about three hole in ones's? (14000000/1) Well this incredible feat was achieved by a gentleman called Patrick Wills from Virginia, and what makes this extra special is that his three hole in one's were all in the same round - Click here to read the BBC's full story.
The second story to catch my eye was from the PGA Tour in the Greenbrier Classic. Robert Streb was going along nicely in the final round when he broke his putter after passing it to his caddie. He had a choice to make as to what to use to putt with... his decision was the sand wedge. He proceeded to make an incredible 5 birdies on the back 9 to get into a playoff. Sadly he did not take the victory, but credit must be given to even get into the playoff! If you broke your putter, what would you use? Hybrid? Drive? 4 iron?
