Ronnie's boys more victorious than Nelson himself
Another great win for Ron Morrison's "shufflers" in the biannual match against Romford. 4-2 was the score line and with the return match due in September at Romford, he is confident in the return the team can continue to add to the 8-1 record. "The matches are played in great spirit but there is no disputing it, both sides are there to win. I'm looking forward to September already".
Many thanks to all of the participants in our PING fitting day this week.
Andrew stepped into host the event at the last minute due to a bereavement, many thanks to him and Morgan who had been looking after the Superstars last week at Wentworth, bet he had to work a bit harder that week.

Boy wonder makes a blunder
Rory arrived back in the UK last week after his Quail Hollow victory with jet lag and Nike PR commitments in London, disappointed legions of British golf followers by missing the cut at The PGA Championship, The European Tours flagship event last week. The World No1 suffered mentally and on the indifferent greens. With records galore, biggest crowds, holes in one, two BMWs parted with and 5 million in prize money the winning score on the week ,yet the biggest surprise was probably the winner, with Byeong Hun An . Last year a Challenge Tour player, this season a European starlet. There was also great weather, plenty of hole in ones, two BMWs given away and 5 million in prize money, great work if you can get it. A "Carrean" best for quite a while! How about Miguel Jiménez too, who just keeps getting better with age? Tied second, the Spaniard is just like the fine wine he drinks.
Thinking about this week though, I guess the missed cut for the world no 1 allowed him to keep sane and a putting stroke ready for this week's Irish Open at Royal County Down, Rory's beloved course on the East coast of Northern Ireland, ranked no 1 in UK, it shows what sort of challenge is awaiting a Stella field and if the course is too much I'm sure the local hospitality will be second to none. Of course Rory, even with all the responsibility for the week, will not let that get in the way of him challenging for the title. Others who can be considered; Shane Lowry, Sergio Garcia and outsider for me - Chris Wood. He plays well streaks and after last week's top 4 the Bristol man could get even closer. Although 6 foot 5, he is a good bad weather player so take a look at his odds along with Lowry for a bit of value perhaps.
Who called all three winners of the League play offs last week? Norwich, Preston, Southend? Oh yes me!(makes a change)Ok Southend were extremely fortunate late into extra time but you have to keep believing .Perhaps the England team could learn a thing or two about penalty taking too! How good were both sets of penalties? Nearly every penalty went in the side netting or the roof of the net giving the goalies just about no chance. Sadly someone has to miss and it was Wycombe. They blew it in extra time when 1-0 up, a late 2 on 1 and the player took the completely wrong option, that's pressure for you I suppose? Southend go up the other end with one minute to go, have their only real chance and score. And the rest is history.
As summer is just about upon us and the football season has come to a close after the FA Cup final this weekend apparently England won a test match again and Britain has 7 players into the 2nd round of a Major tennis event! Rafa is going for his 10 Major win on clay and who would bet against him? Who knows but let's hope British success continues with both Wimbledon and The Aussies just around the corner. We need all the confidence we can to be celebrating later in the summer.
