The US Masters at Augusta National was once again a spectacle of note. It is spooky how good those guys are under that pressure. Fowler and Spieth firing birdies, with Reed trying to hang in and what a great job of guts and determination he showed over all 18 holes. The three of them put on a putting display that was special.
Augusta is all about the greens. Where you put yourself on the green and then how you putt or get up and down, and the top players simply did better than the rest- like Reeds two putt at 17.
I also feel that it is a great lesson for all golfers. If you want to improve your scoring, work hard on chipping and putting.
Invest in your short game with Titleist
I will be doing a short game and putting clinic at 10:00 on Saturday the 28th April with the latest Titleist equipment.
I had a great game on Wednesday with Jenny Westray, Heather Anderson and Janet Humphrey. Jen and I were very unlucky to lose to Heather and Janet, and Janet went on to win the Cora Hicks Medal. Well done!
Heather Anderson and Roger Phillips have enjoyed a great three months here, with Heather winning Club Champs. They head back home to Scotland next week like most of our overseas guests have returned or are due to leave soon.
It has been so special having all our swallows in town and enjoying their Southbroom Summers.
The Gallery Café BB Stableford had a good field and congratulations to all the winners! Enjoy your meals at the Gallery Cafe in Trafalgar, thanks again Avril & Peter!
Great to see the Palmnut Vultures visiting Southbroom and inspecting the course! They are here to enjoy the fruit of the Kosi Palm or Raffia Palms. They are often confused for fish eagles with all their white plumage. Very Very special to have them here.
