Hello golfers, 

Competition results 

April Club Stableford

On Sunday the April Club Stableford was played and with a large turnout the scoring was going to be good just like the weather. 

In Division One it was a couple of youngsters who topped the table after both Brandon Sanders and Edward Stephenson scored 40pts with Brandon winning on countback. With 39pts were Greg Driscoll and Ken Wilson and scoring 38pts were Darren Alexander, John Tarbox, Mark Reynolds and John Fardon

In Division Two the scoring went completely crazy. Jack Gammage amassed an incredible 49 pts to take the win from Derek Shaw who was only 3 pts back on 46. In third place was Tom Clark with 44 pts and in fourth was Stuart Mills with 41pts. Scoring 39 pts were Terry Lingham, Phil Whitecross and Steve Foster. Well played to you all.

Coronation Foursomes Trophy

Two former Lady Captains teamed up to win their Coronation Foursomes trophy. Rosie Hartnell and Alison Shirville scored 38pts to beat Jackie Phelps and Joan Waples by a shot while Margaret Osborne and new member Ali Williams finished third with 36pts. Congratulations ladies.

Leighton Buzzard Golf Club Regain Trophy

On Easter Sunday the club led by our Vice Captain Jeremy Taylor and past Captain Nick Clarke we regained the LBGC/Meaux Boutigny Challenge Trophy. In the first match out Jeremy and Nick were all square after 9 holes but then won the next five holes for a 5&4 victory against Meau's Captain Henry Burgon and Florence Gervais who had on the Saturday scored a hole in one on hole 11.

Andy Vale and Rosie Hartnell then won 4&3 against Cathie Burgon and Jerome Gervais to give Leighton a 2-0 lead! But like the Ryder Cup Meaux stormed back with wins for Kevin O'Donoghue (representing Meaux) and Jean-Paul Gallois 2&1 against Rob Marshall and Val Berry.

Then Viviane Vale (representing Meaux) and David Nougarede won 1 up against Margaret Osborne and Brandon Waddington (Our Stewards Son) ensuring the last game between Eric Osborne and Alain Nougarede to decide the cup? 

Thankfully Eric delivered with a 2&1 victory. The Club return to Meaux Boutigny on September 15th to try and retain the trophy!

Pros advice 

1st Tee Nerves

We have many players come into the shop talking about 1st tee nerves. Some let it get to them and they tense up while others have found a way to cope with the nerves. When the forearms and hands tense up they don't allow you to swing the club freely which gives you the best chance of a good result. 

A good way of getting rid of this tension is to hover the club head off the ground behind the ball when you set up. This prevents you from pushing the club head into the ground and tensing up your arms before you start your swing. With the club head off the ground you can stay relaxed and sweep the ball off the tee with your driver as it should be done.
