- Ryder Cup
- Coaching Tip
- Junior Captain's Day
- SALE NOW ON!!
With just one month to go until this year's Ryder Cup and the team is now confirmed. European captain Darren Clarke's three Ryder Cup picks are Martin Kaymer, Lee Westwood and Thomas Pieters. I suppose we could have picked Lee Westwood based on his past experience and his performance in the majors this year.
Could Clarke have done anything but pick Thomas Pieters after he request he play with him in last week's Made in Denmark event where Pieters shot a first round -8 under par and then went on to win the tournament? This came on the back of his 4th place finish at the Rio Olympic games.
Martin Kaymer's selection however could been seen as the one debatable one, but if you recall he did hole the winning putt in 2012 and has valuable experience.
So a mix of youth and experience seems to be the case here with 6 (six) rookies on the European side. Let's hope we can look forward to some more great golf just as we saw at Medinah Country Club in 2012 when it was last in America.
Do you know how to swing properly in the sand?
Do you find your consistency out of bunkers is poor?
Set up is key for when playing out of the bunker, whether you're greenside or fairway.

Junior Captain's Day
It was a great day, the weather was fab and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves, although I guess it's hard not to especially when we had pizza back in the club house upon arrival!
Best nett = Sean Dobson
Straightest drive on the 6th = Amy fletcher
Nearest the pin on the 12th = Sean Dobson
I also chose a random hole (the 9th) and the best gross score would also win a prize, Sean Dobson and Sam Cotterill both scored a par so had a hole play off with Sam crowned the winner after sinking his birdie putt.
Despite a washout on the Monday we managed to entertain around 500 players enjoying the great golf, who were very complimentary to services around the club in particularly the golf course.
Hopefully members who did not participate in the festival week did take advantage of the courtesy rounds at our neighbouring clubs.

PING iBlade Irons
If you’re a confident ball striker you should seriously consider the iBlade irons, which boast more distance, forgiveness and feel over the S55 irons they replace.
PING says its new iBLADE irons are its most workable and forgiving blade-style irons ever, with a whole host of refinements versus the S55s they replace adding performance across the board.
