Another piece of Orsett history is made…
Cadet Sophie Wheeler and her playing partner Tracy Rooney were determined to not be outdone by the boy's recent celebrations. They beat favourites Colchester 4 and 3 in the final of the County Hunter foursomes at the weekend at neutral, Clacton. They received 3 shots and were looking forward to a tough match. Tracy and Sophie got off to a solid start and got their opponents on the back foot early. After that it was plain sailing for the Orsett duo who have been brilliant all year in the event. This is the first time Orsett have won an event like this creating even more history for the Club this year.
Mark, Sophie's Dad was there to witness each round and was extremely proud. Sophie has really improved this season and this puts the icing on the cake. I can`t thank Tracy enough for playing with her. She is a busy person and it now makes it all worthwhile.
Great job girls, good luck next year trying to defend.
Richie is celebrating…
My assistant Richie is celebrating passing his PGA exams last week. Having completed his custom fitting, he can put the books away for a few months and enjoy not having to research and write essays.
He just has to wait until April to graduate with everyone else in his class.
As you can see there is nothing like treating yourself to a favourite meal following a bit of success.
Congratulations Richie a great accomplishment.
It`s over. England's bid to win the Rugby World Cup is in tatters after a mauling from "the convicts", Australia on Saturday evening. Speed to the breakdown and a scrum that was immovable were the cornerstones to the success, which could mean a clean sweep of management for England. Australia , themselves were in disarray this time last year, rudderless and heading out of the top 5. But their new coach has done amazing things with limited numbers and look like they could give Wales a run for the top birth in the group. They meet next weekend in their final group games. The winners get a smoother run to the final if they top the group, so all to play for. England will have to sit and watch from the stands and only wonder, what if? No one likes to see the host team bundled out so soon. It`s been a great event so far with full stadiums across the nation. The only good thing is we won`t have to listen to "swing low" anymore!
Brendan Rodgers falls on his sword and gets sacked at Liverpool. A high profile manager under huge pressure and struggling with the Premiership demands. To be fair he has lost some quality players in the last two seasons and replacing them has been impossible. Who gets the job? Jürgen Klopp is favourite but I like the look of Frank DE Boer and assistant Dennis Bergkamp I think players would want to come to Anfield and play for these two. Time will tell.
I`m at the golf trade show this week checking out the best things golf for you all next season.
See you all soon, David
