Phil O'Brien played the game of his life with a nett 62 to win the Presidents Putter trophy on Saturday. Phil celebrated with family and friends after getting his handicap cut by a couple of shots.
Runner-up John Allinson missed out by a single shot, with Graham Richmond taking third place with a nett 64, two clear of Nigel Chapman. Judy Ammon won the "top lady" prize, matching partner Graham's nett 64 on a high-turnout day with record low scores. If you played to your hándicap you would have finished 25th. Fantastic scoring by a large number of the field.
Phil won a Motocaddy push trolley and cart bag. Well done Phil!
The evening was a great night with a Carribean theme. There was a prize for the best or loudest shirt worn that night and Trevor Hopkinson, who I gave a pitching lesson to earlier that day, took the prize. Don't worry we didn't discuss what shirts we were going to wear.
We have just taken delivery of some demo clubs from PING's new G30 range of irons, which are designed to offer improved distance, consistency and forgiveness.
The PING G30 irons are specifically made to provide consistent gaping through the set. This is to ensure every club in the bag goes a different distance. They get shorter from 4-iron through to lob wedge, with progressive offset making long irons more forgiving and shorter clubs easier to control. Also, a longer blade length on the G30 irons - as compared to the G25 irons - expands the perimeter weighting, increasing the moment of inertia.
The G30 irons have an undercut cavity, which helps to lower the centre of gravity, enabling improved launched conditions and increased forgiveness.
The Custom Tuning Port - which also helps move the centre of gravity lower and further back - sits low down on the irons, which are, as a consequence, able to support a thinner face and generate faster ball speeds.
Please feel free to come into the shop and book a slot on the Flight Scope to see how good they are.
