Our Captain, Chris Sumner
had a blast over weekend.
Starting on Friday evening with the black tie dinner where everyone enjoyed good food, good wine and an all round fantastic start to Captain's weekend.
Saturday started early with the first competitors teeing off at 7.30am and Captain was present to see the first shot struck.
Rd1 saw some fine scoring:
1st - Cliff, Stuart
- 72-05 = 67
2nd - Koutsokostas, Kleon
- 86-19 = 67
3rd - Ward, Richard
- 79-11 = 68
4th - Hardman, Andrew
- 84-15 = 69
Saturday evening was party time and Captain and his guests filled the Clubhouse for what has been described as a "top night" with some groovy moves on the dance floor! Gav Southern
hitting it hard!
Round 2 played on Sunday saw some players make a move up the leaderboard.
sitting 12th after rd1 was playing well, Nigel Given
was once again in the thick of things only to fall away at the end to gain 3rd place. Mike Hughes
regained some form with a weekends best 65 nett and to post a Clubhouse score of 139 and eventually claiming 2nd place, leaving Vaughan Kershaw
to make a par on the last hole which included his drive bouncing into play from the driving range netting and a 20ft putt which sat on the edge before falling in after what felt like an eternity!
Congratulations to Captain Chris
, to Vaughan
the champion golfer of the year and all who took part. A wonderful weekend was had by all.
President's weekend is up next so keep your eyes open for the Saturday party night and join in the celebrations! It's two in a row for Mrs Munro
Congratulations to Sarah
who won the Pro's Prize last week.
A medal competition sponsored by myself which has been played for over 18 of my 20 years at PGC.
This is the first time any golfer has won it back to back so well done on your great achievement.
Also well done to Barbara Potts
who came a close 2nd and to Iris Bratton
who picked up the gross prize. Think she may have shot lower than her age!!!!! Sorry Iris
, I couldn't resist……
This Sunday is Lady Captain's day. I wish Sylvia
all the very best for her day, I am looking forward to her little drinks party and I wish all competitors the very best of look.
Report and photos to come next week. Vice-Captain is a fine advert for us, his Professionals
2017 is to be his year...
New clubs, new swing and new outfits, he may be peaking too early! Steve
started the year by inflicting a crushing defeat on the Captain and I in the sides match, not many have ever done that!
got a written warning for being part of that victory! They have made a huge change to Steve's swing and it really is great to see. I know how proud Gary
is to be part of your story.
He is like a catwalk model, looking the part whilst striding the fairways of Preston in his array of Oscar Jacobson apparel.
A few weeks ago Steve
collected his custom fitted Mizuno JPX 900 hot metal irons and has now dropped 3 shots off his handicap.
How good is that!! New wedges in the bag for me
This week my Cleveland RTX 3 wedges arrived. Fitted with KBS HI-REV shafts for added spin and custom fitted bounce angles, I can't wait to get them on the course.
For me, having the correct wedges is so important for so many reasons.
Meaningful Loft Gaps - this offers me consistent distance differentials between each wedge.
Bounce Angles - My wedges have high bounce angles because I like to operate with strong shaft lean and a steep angle of attack. Without higher bounce, I would dig into the turf too much.
Spin - So important to me!
So why do so many golfers not use special wedges? Wedges that spin, stop quicker, add feel and control. My new Cleveland wedges are in the bag because I found they spin more than any of the others.
