Greetings from Maurice Campbell
Leighton Buzzard Golf Club - PGA Golf Professional

Did you watch the Open Championship? What a fantastic finish to a great tournament. It is very difficult to have a large lead and not think about winning the title before it is over. It is obvious to me that Rory McIlroy has matured mentally with his game as he had a large lead in the Masters a few years ago and threw it away. That was because he was thinking about winning the Masters. It is a problem for us all when we are playing a good round we think about the end or how we are going to finish. He said in one of his interviews he was trying to think of one shot at a time and the process and not the result. That is a skill we all need to learn when playing as it will serve us well. Staying in the present moment is a huge key to golfing success and one that I have, like you, struggled with from time to time. In commentary it was also mentioned about him losing in the first round of the British Boys Championship some years ago. Who did he lose to? Our very own Graham Benson beat him all those years ago.

Girl Power

Talking about our players we have some great news to share. Our very own Vanessa Jay has turned Professional in America. Vanessa will play her first event shortly. Vanessa graduated earlier this year and Dad Steve and Mum Nina went over to see Vanessa graduate which I'm sure was a proud moment for them all. Vanessa deliberated for some time on whether to turn professional or not and she finally made the decision to go for it and follow her dream. I am glad she has, as physically she can mix it with anyone and mentally she is working with Brian Hemmings who is a sports psychologist that works with a number of tour players. Vanessa is hoping to return to the UK at Christmas time and it will be great to see her.

Another young lady we have as a member who has been performing exceptionally well this year is Freya Daniels. Freya recently lost the girls County Championships in a playoff against two players that had handicaps 9 shots lower than hers. There was a three way tie at Beds & County Golf Club. All three went down the playoff hole where Freya smacked a driver and then a hybrid to 10 feet from the flag. The eventual winner hit the ball to 25 feet and holed the putt for birdie and Freya missed her birdie attempt. The thing I took away from it as her coach was that she made the other girl have to do something to win it. Freya held her nerve, was strong mentally and was beaten by someone who did something special.

Well done girls, we are proud of you both.

 

In other competition news the scoring around the course never ceases to amaze me in terms of how many players play below their handicap. Playing to your handicap in round three of the summer stableford would have put you in 32nd place. So well done to the winners and they were in 1st place Dennis Elliott on 43 points. Dennis won on count back from Jeff Beasley in 2nd and Jeremy Taylor in 3rd. Well played gentlemen! The overall winner of the Summer Stableford was Manny Barker with a total of 84 points with Steve Richardson in 2nd place with 83 points and Jeremy Taylor in 3rd with 82 points. Well done guys!
