Titleist fitting day...
A perfect day for fitting. Conditions were ideal for all members who came along to get fitted for the latest Titleist products. Senior Technical advisor, Jack Yetton was on hand to make sure the clubs and user were in harmony. With the use of Trackman it didn`t take him too long to get the ideal choices for each and every one of them.
As you can see in the pictures there was a vast array of product to fit from and gave the ideal opportunity to try product that might not always be available direct from our shop. Many thanks to all who attended, I`m looking forward to seeing those scores tumble for each and every one of you.
Charity begins at home…
Orsett member Colin Hodges decided to help and give a little back. Sadly, Colin lost his sister to cancer earlier this year and his nephew wanted to show his appreciation to the Macmillan Cancer support group in return for making his Mum and Colin's sister as comfortable as possible with their care and support in her last few days.
Colin, known as The Editor for his "Unigate Recorder" one of the Club Sweeps personal newsletters decided to take up with his nephew and two others the longest day challenge for The MacMillan Group. Starting at 6am on one of the best days of the year they played four rounds in daylight to raise funds.
"It was a great challenge and with my sister in our thoughts, there was no way we would not complete it. I know the funds raised are going to a worthy cause. We're all a little tired but it was all worth each and every hole we played."
Congratulations to Lee, Colin, Ant and Jason!

US Open, Chambers of hell
Listening to the players in interview this week, Chambers Bay is going to be more DIFFICULT than Carnoustie on a miserable day in January. It appears not to rank in anyone's top 50 of courses to play again. Due to the green severity, weather conditions I don`t think but one player (the winner) will actually enjoy the course. It looks stunning, but looks are deceiving. If The USGA do as they normally do, the first day could be a complete farce, so let's hope they are listening and make an event of it right from the start. No problem having a tough course but not unplayable. It could get as bad as Shinnecock a few years back when they had to hose down the greens during play. At times a 3 putt was brilliant from 6 feet, no one wants to watch that for four days do they? Let's hope there is a birdie fest and all the players mentioned last week are in the mix come Sunday with a couple of surprises as well. The USGA don`t like low scoring but give the players a chance .We need to encourage people to play more golf and high scores are not the way to do it.
Still a few spaces available...
Captains Charity day next Saturday 27th June is still open for a few more teams. Graham has put together a really entertaining event for a great cause .So if you would like to get a team in get in touch with either us at the Pro Shop or The Office staff to secure your spot. It will be a great day and not one to miss.
