Leighton Buzzard Golf Club Golf Director
In years gone by the club player had to adapt to the clubs that were on offer. Meaning they would either have to stoop over the ball if the shafts were too short or hold their hands higher or lower if the clubhead didn't sit properly for them otherwise the heel or toe of the club would dig into the ground at impact causing the clubface to either close or open resulting in an offline shot.
It is much different now. We now suit the clubs to the player. We can now try different clubheads with various shafts and grips and make sure that you get the clubs tailored to you so you can get the ball flight you are looking for. With the use of FlightScope technology we can take the guesswork out of the equation and get accurate data to base our decisions on. All clubs should be custom fit to your specifications from drivers to putters. So why not take advantage of this complete equipment solution and enjoy your golf to its full potential. Come into the shop and we'll be happy to talk you through the club fitting process and book you an appointment to see which clubs are best for you.
"I would recommend Maurice to anyone looking for new clubs. With his fitting centre and huge expanse of knowledge I have a fantastic new set of irons, properly fitted for me and a very fair price. One thing I really did notice was that he explained why the specs were what they were which has installed so much confidence in my game and new clubs. Go and see him and get fitted.... It will help your game hugely. Plus the clubs arrived within 4 days!"
I thought it was about time I dropped you a line to thank you for the great work you did on fitting me with my new clubs last September. I have really noticed the difference in my ball striking, which has improved greatly. I did not realize how much difference it makes compared to buying straight off the shelf and I will definitely will recommend this to all my friends. Also, thank you to all of your team members for the great, friendly atmosphere that exists in the Pro Shop, it has been my pleasure to have enjoyed Will's company out on the golf course on a couple of occasions and hope in the near future to also enjoy yours.

The 'trophy' that's nearly a century old, with a shaft made of hickory and a head of iron, a favourite with yesteryear legends including golf's most successful-ever amateur and 13-times Major champion Bobby Jones.
But it's not the "Mashie" - the old-time equivalent of a current day five-iron - presented to the winners of the golf club's annual match against the Seniors that's the prize: it's the bragging rights the winners enjoy for the following 12 months.
And Club Captain Adrian Stephenson has that honour this year after his side recovered from two early setbacks to win 4-3, with one game halved.
Seniors captain Robbie John and Kelvin Young took the scalp of Adrian and Mick Francis and Will Sampson and Geoff Allatt toppled Ed Stephenson and Mark McLoughlin before Tim Martin and Simon Thornton pulled one back against Steve King and Danny Nairne. Dave Debell and Fred Ritchie nudged the seniors into the 3-1 lead with a win over Derek Richards and Terry Jordan and with Graham Avery and Keith Camp sharing the spoils against David Coleman and Michael Loot, the game was evenly poised. But the club team powered home with a hat-trick of wins by Steve Gillett and Chris Read over Dave Kingham and Keith Oddie, Derek Lindley and Simon Rossiter against Rob Tate and Andy Pickering and Brian Wilson and John Smith securing the win over Harry Adam and Patrick Quinlan.
Adrian had a second win days later, his team beating Bedfordshire Police 4-2. Ken Wilson was on top form as he and his skipper got the club off to a flying start, with further wins by Phil Coumbe and Steve Light, Martin Price and Mike Smith and Tony Russell and Vice Captain John Smith. Brian Carter and Peter Myrants secured a half, while Andy McDonald and David Roffe and Derek Lindley and David Nero were sadly left wanting.
Farida Cerosio won the Ladies Silver Division May stableford with 32 points, a shot clear of Sandra Bellis; Lynn Newnham beat Vice Captain Avril Simpson for top spot in Bronze"A" on countback after both finished with 32 points, and Betty Bluett won the Bronze "B" competition with 31 points, four clear of Sue Preston.
Leighton Ladies beat Aylesbury Vale in their Shield match, but lost against Mount Pleasant.
The May Club Stableford took place last Saturday in conjunction with the Lombard Trophy qualifier and the scoring matched the hot weather. In Division 1 it was Barry Wills who beat Josh Banwell on countback after both scored 41pts. In third place with 40pts were Tom Day and Neale Proud.
Division 2 was won by Trevor McAleese with 40pts, two ahead of Paul Dowdeswell and with 37pts were the trio of Martin Price, David Roffe and Dan Hill.
Its congratulations to Josh Banwell who came out as the qualifier for the Lombard Trophy and will now represent the club with myself at Ashridge Golf Club later in the year.
Last weekend I had the pleasure of playing golf with a group of friends in France at Le Touquet Golf Resort. The results were as follows.
