Orsett Golf Club PGA Golf Professional
Billy Malpass did what many golfers dream of doing and had his first hole in one last week. Showbiz" as he is known hit a perfect 6 iron, two bounces and the ball just fell into the hole on the difficult 15th at Orsett.
"I couldn`t wait to tell everyone to be in the bar to celebrate so I put it out on WhatsApp. I didn`t mind the bar bill as it`s not everyday something like this happens is it? I was so excited, so many people I know have managed the feat now I know what it feels like, and it's amazing!"
Ladies add to the charity feeling...
Ladies Captain, Sue Mason held a fund raising afternoon last weekend for her designated Charity, National Rheumatoid Arthritis Society (NRAS) an 18 hole event mixed between a fourball betterball and Texas Scramble. Played in perfect conditions with many teams in a shotgun start, the winners of the event were - Tina Gregory, Martin Gregory, Jason Mynett, and Wade Mason. Runners Up were Sharron Wells, Dave Wells, Mark Bird and John Robertson. 3rd on countback, Kay Dalton, with Roger Burder, Kevin Lewis and Denis Mayes.
Sue had so many thank you`s especially to those helping around the course and donations given. The big winner was of course the Charity with nearly £2000 raised on the day.
Could this help you?
Richard Parrish recently purchased a new set of irons with the essential custom fitting included. To help him further we took him to the practice ground with the GC2 machine and did the "gap" test to find out how far he was hitting each iron on average, not furthest, average. He now has a record of each club but of course knows the limits of them too.
Both are necessary for good scoring. Could this be something that may help you improve your scoring? If so why not book a session with me and let's make your game even more enjoyable than before.
Pros Day full!
Many thanks to all who have now filled the Pros Day sheet in 2 days, for those snoozers among you it is now full and individual reserve spots are all we have left, no 4 balls groups sorry.
The last of Golf's Major events is on this week. The golf calendar has been moved to incorporate the Olympics next month, with golf involved for the first time in decades.
Baltusrol is another of America's iconic establishments which has held numerous Major events in its history. The great Jack Nicklaus won there in 1980 as did Phil Mickleson in 2005 and now the new Titans tackle the New Jersey course.
Another bombers course, Rory has the game, if he putts well he could be top of the pile. As outsiders, how about Colsearts? He needs a good performance to make it onto the Ryder Cup team in September, or what about Bads? Aaron Baddley won recently, where has the talented Aussie been?
It will be a great event no doubt then we can sit back and wonder if any Russian can truly deserve to stand on the Podium in Rio for a couple of weeks?
The IOC have had the chance to clean up sport by banning them but decided against it. No matter what the sporting consequences or fall out this was the chance to make the stand of all stands for the good of all sport was it not? Talking of making a stand, England hierarchy have picked a manager who might just surprise you all.
Big Sam might just have a few tricks up his sleeve now he is directing decent players, what an opportunity it is for him, let alone the financial reward. Good luck to him, he might get England back up there with Wales by the next World Cup.

We're used to seeing Bubba hit his ball high, but this is something different - you may have to wait a while before you can rent one of these in the shop!
