Ladies post a strong warning to the rest...
It is the Ladies this week who took centre stage in all things Daily Mail foursomes. With a strong team of Angie Paton and Kay Dalton the Ladies had to go away to Thorndon Park for their first round tie. In freezing, blustery conditions it made no difference as Orsett cruised through to round 2 with an emphatic 4 and 3 win. Lady Captain, Sue Mason was so pleased, "a great start for us in this event. It's never easy to go away and win but our two girls are very strong players and could do very well. The course was wet so power was a big advantage this time around. Angie and Kay mastered the conditions ever so well and deserved their victory".
So the second round awaits them. Congratulations on the win Ladies.
Odyssey putters a plenty have just arrived.
Many new models for 2016 and some "old faithful's" are still in the range, whether it`s face balancing or heel /toe weighting we have it if your putting is letting your scoring down, a change can be the answer.
Buy a putter this month and I`ll give you a putting lesson thrown in on the price!
Available now until April 15th is our traditional season opening buy 4 dozen for the price of 3 dozen Titleist deal. Add your script too in black or red for no extra charge.
Along with this ball offer for all those with bags that have seen "better days" how about a £20.00 off a new bag from Motocaddy off to kick start the season?
This is on ALL their bag range and so includes the popular waterproof bag.
A great opportunity to get even better value from us than ever before and to unload the old one (so the wife won't suspect anything)
For further information on these two offers go to my website, www.david-wood.co.uk or get in touch via email.
Anyone fancy a game at Walton Heath this year?
All you have to do is win the Scrutton Cup next month(April 23rd) and you will have the pleasure of playing there and perhaps Vila Sol in Portugal in the National Lombard trophy final all for just £2.00. The added bonus is I come with you! So gents if you fancy playing on one of Surreys finest courses and then get some September sun in Portugal make sure you enter this event. Last year Colin Hodges qualified and really did have a great day.
So if you want to stop Colin getting there again…enter!
"The Long putter is dead. Long live the short putter"
According to Adam Scott last week. After a runner up spot was followed by a win on the first stop of the Florida swing in West Palm Beach, the Aussie with the honey swing and the same looks (according to Wayne Riley, who wasn`t sure what was prettier, Scott or his swing?) is bang on form to challenge the 20 somethings in the next few weeks. Doral this week on the Trump Blue Monster in the first WGC event and with Augusta around the corner, "Scotty" has found his A game. Many thought he could have been on the golfing scrap heap at the end of the season with the demise of the long putter but he used the standard one to good effect to hold off Sergio and win for the 12th time on the PGA Tour. In his mid-thirties, Scott was beginning to look like a forgotten man but this timely reminder will give the "housewives choice" the surge of reassurance needed to get a chance at Augusta next month. We are talking April, what happened to February anyone?
This week will be interesting as everyone will be there in the same conditions on the same course. A pre-test for the years first Major.
My outside pick for this week, if his back holds up? Louis Oosthuizen, after a win in Australia the quiet South African, not three words that generally go in the same sentence is having a better time of it with the putter as well.
As I mentioned more than once, momentum is gathering for Augusta and we all know its horses for courses round there.
A big weekend ahead in the Premiership, could it already be squeaky bum time?
It was last Sunday with the penalties at the League Cup final. Liverpool where were your strikers when it came to the penalties? You get paid for scoring goals and these were the most important opportunities of the season boys and none of you stepped up to the spot, shame on you.
