Ladies success shows the way…
Orsett Ladies Silver team are through to the semi-finals for the first time since 2010. They now face Crondon Park on August 7th at a neutral venue yet to be decided.
Lady Captain Sue Mason, is so pleased with the team's efforts this year.
"The girls have played so well all season and won all but one game in their league. The results were by quite large margins too and with matches won counting if it were close it was like an league extra point. We are all looking forward to the match now and want to get to the final".
The other Ladies teams are all contending for further semi-final places too, so good luck to them.
PING Demo day, one of the busiest.
Thanks to so many of you who attended the demo day Monday. Not only did we have all the sessions filled but members came along to just "try" the product. It was an interesting day with so much information being given out resulting in much contemplation. Thanks to the mighty Morgan, the time whizzed by so quickly!
Nike products have been flying off the shelf with the help of the Welsh team still in the Euro Championships they nearly made it to the final so we will continue the discounts until the end of the tournament on Sunday evening.
The Open sweepstake is down to the last few spots as well. Many prizes are at stake and well worth the "investment", so next time you come over why not have a speculate and pick a number (if there are any left).
Talking of the Open, Dustin Johnson has laid down another marker after winning the WGC event at monstrous Firestone. His final round 66 snuck past favourite Jason Day who somehow contrived to turn victory into defeat with a rare double bogey on the par 5 16th .Johnson is so hot right now he is the man to beat. He has conquered many of his demons and Troon is just built for him. The back nine is brutal and his power will be more than handy. He has unfinished business with The Open after 2011 and losing out to Darren Clarke at St Georges. Could he win a Troon too? Of course he can, if he prepares for the wind to blow the American will be right there come Sunday.
Is it the 'Big Three' or the 'Big Four'?
Just when you thought Jason Day, Jordan Spieth and Rory McIlroy were all set to divvy up golf's biggest prizes, along comes big-hitting Dustin Johnson. The US champion is now number two in the world and looks to be finally fulfilling his potential after another fine win at the weekend - and a big one too at the WGC Bridgestone Invitational. For years Johnson seemed destined to be the bridesmaid, now he's one of the favourites to go back-to-back in Majors and take the Claret Jug back across the Atlantic.
Next week's Open at Royal Troon could be a classic

The weather has finally broken, after the wettest June on record for over 40 years break out the sun screen, you just might need it at last!
Perry and his team have got the course in great shape and its looking a picture and just to help further he has increased the green speed by a yard since Monday so be careful with those slippery 6 footers.
Avoid the hay, no, that`ll be the rough, its deep!
