Christmas is just around the corner and if you are anything like me you will not have even thought about it. I know one man that has and that is Peter Gadsden. Peter won the Saturday Tukey medal with his newly fitted PING G30 irons. Peter won with a nett 68 and reduced his handicap. Mick Myatt was in second on count back from Mick Cox with both players scoring a nett 69.
The Sunday Turkey Medal was won by Darren Blount with a storming nett 63 and he also had his handicap reduced. Tom Fitzgerald finished second with a nett 67 and Shane Kimber who has been having help from Wayne finished third with a nett 68.
The mid-week Turkey Medal was won by Mike Smith on a nett 69 which was great as Mike had only had a lesson off me the week before. Robbie John finished second on count back from Steve Shepherd and John Allinson who all scored a nett 70. Well done to all the winners and I know you will enjoy your Turkey.
The Christmas decorations are already up in the shop ready for the festive season. If I told you I had anything to do with that I would be lying as my good lady wife took charge and put them up.
What do you want for Christmas?
I bet you one thing some of you will want for Christmas is a bunker game. I have inside information that some of you absolutely detest bunkers.
I was fortunate to grow up playing on a golf course that had 100 bunkers on it. If you wanted to be good at golf you had to be good at playing out of bunkers. If you weren't, like my poor old Dad, God rest his soul then you had a rather less enjoyable round of golf. He would always ask me how to play them but as a child I did not have a clue, I just went up and hit the ball out like every other junior golfer. They just don't care do they? They go up a give a thump and it comes out.
As a professional golf coach that has learnt from the best coaches in the world I now know the essential ingredients. Please watch the video to find out those ingredients.
If you really want to improve how about getting a package of lessons for Christmas. Vouchers are available and you will improve and enjoy your golf.
Here's what Matt Hill - Past South East England Schools Champion, Past Under 18 County Champion and Past Paul Fletcher Trophy Champion has to say:
"Maurice has helped me so much with my golf. He has really helped me with my mind and my golf swing. Maurice's coaching is awesome, you simply can't beat it!"
My flash tache is going strong with 3 weeks growth now and yes I am under instructions to remove it on 1st December.
I have been overwhelmed by the support I have received. Online £155 has been raised and offline in the shop £300 has been raised. It is great to raise the awareness of Prostate Cancer, Testicular Cancer and Mental Health problems. In recent times there has been a large amount of media coverage relating to Mental Health problems which I think is great as I am certain so many people suffer in silence through fear of stigma. This is a great shame as Mental Health problems literally ruin people's lives and cause deaths. Also I know of members who have recently been diagnosed with Prostate Cancer and I wish them well for the future.
