I hope you've had a very enjoyable Bank Holiday weekend. The weather certainly kept us all on our toes. The wind, rain and sunshine made for some challenging golfing conditions.
The qualifying stage of the Dennis Jordan Foursomes Trophy was won by father and son duo Russell and Josh Rowles with a very impressive 43pts, second place went to Shane Bentley and Gary Hart with 40pts. 15 pairs qualified for the knockout stage which will decide who wins the trophy.
The Bank Holiday Mixed Greensomes was a closely fought event with three pairs scoring 39pts. The winners on countback were Sandra Bellis and Mick Myatt from Judy Ammon and Graham Richmond, who came second on countback from Mark and Kate Knight.

Callaway Big Bertha Alpha 815 Driver
Want adjustability? You can move weights in the heel and toe to correct slices and hooks, tweak the loft to one of eight settings and flip a central weight to optimize your spin -all independent of one another. That means if the loft is correct but the spin isn't, flipping the central weight could solve your problems. But that kind of freedom also requires saving weight. Callaway does this by using eight materials, including a lighter, more flexible face and a composite crown. So it's not only more adjustable than last year's model, it's lighter, too.
Callaway XR Series Driver
When it comes to improving a driver's aerodynamics, Callaway engineers make the case that the key piece is the first part of the crown. That's why there's a staggered step on top of the head. The goal is to reduce aerodynamic drag (the way air flows across the top of the clubhead) during the downswing and boost your swing speed. Throw in the lighter, more flexible face design found in the Alpha, and you have a driver that's almost 20 grams lighter.
