The US Open is under way at Shinnecock Hills and with the wind blowing, it looks like a really tough test. It looks like a magnificent golf course and someone is going to have to do something special to win. Patience will be one of the keys because it is not the sort of course offering many birdies, so par is all important. Picking a winner is impossible, but Dustin Johnson must feel great after last week and it is always interesting watching the progress of Tiger Woods. I also think Shinnecock Hills has the most beautiful clubhouse in all of golf.
The winner of the US Open will be great on the greens as Retief Goosen was when he won at Shinnecock a few years back.
Last Saturday was the Captain vs Vice Captain Tournament!
Congrats to Southbroom Captain, Gerald FitzGerald and his team on their resounding 13/3 matches won, and to Lady Vice-Captain, Allyson Thomas who enjoyed a 4 ½ / 1 ½ win.
All the players in the winning teams will receive their token R20 note. Errol Amm shot a 2 under par 70. One helluva round to break his age and an amazing achievement. He and Gerald came in with a resounding 52 points. Mari Fielden was delighted to break 80 and scored 50 points, together with Di DiMambro.
The Exciting moment of the day was the news from the course that Jim Cook had aced the famous 4th Hole. For his 3rd hole in one in his golfing career. Well done Jim!

The Annual Tuna Angling Club Fundraiser was another festive day and social media is enjoying a load of fun group pics from the various hole sponsors. It’s always great to see the younger local business owners and their families & mates playing and enjoying Southbroom ~ especially with all the energy and vibe that they bring. The best dressed team made everyone smile – hidden in their crazy costumes are John Caple of Gayridge Chicken Farm (Our awesome sponsor of the Friday Chicken Run!).
