As many of you know Morley Smith and I did a cycle ride in June. We cycled from St Malo in to Spain. It was tough and it was hot, but it was worth it. Before and during the trip we raised money for two charities. They were Keech Hospice and Willen Hospice. Both charities receive a quarter of their income from the government and they have to raise the remaining 75% through donations.
Both charities provide end of life care for the individuals who are about to pass away and their families. My Father was is Willen Hospice and was looked after by a wonderful team one of which was and is a fantastic friend. Willen helped us through that difficult time and Keech do exactly the same job for many families, so it was an absolute no brainer for Morley and I to raise money for theses great charities.
We raised approximately £1350.00 for Keech and £750.00 for Willen. We would like to thank those who kindly donated to the charities. We realise there are a lot of demands put on people to donate to charity, so thank you.
It's been an interesting week's golf with Jason Day winning the BMW Championship and becoming World no.1 in the process with some simply awesome golf. I think it's great not to have the domination of just one person winning nearly every week and the standard of the golf is a joy to watch. With the Tour Championship this week and the final group pairings of Stenson and Fowler in the penultimate group and Day and Speith in the final group the potential for some great viewing is almost guaranteed. The Ladies Solheim Cup seemed to come life after the 'not given putt' incident. Whichever side you come down on it certainly fired up the Americans and made for some great golf on the Sunday afternoon, it's just a shame for Europe to be beaten so closely.
Not always perfect...

Here at Leighton Buzzard it's congratulations to Peter Brennan and Dennis Elliott for winning the Dennis Jordan Foursomes Trophy after defeating Paul Ellam and Steve Richardson in the final on Sunday. After being 3 down after 7 holes they were never up in the match until they managed to win on the 18th hole. As they say it's all in the timing.
Pace of Play
Be helpful to others in your group..
Follow the flight of all tee shots, not just your own. Once in the fairway, help others look for their ball if you already know the location of yours. Volunteer to fill in a divot or rake a bunker for another player if needed. Be ready to attend the flagstick for others.
