What’s Up Next?

Hope you all had a nice Easter break and are fully refreshed!

Now the holidays are over and the Easter camps have finished, I’m back to my normal teaching hours again. My lesson diary is busy this time of year, so if you do want to book a lesson then please get in contact with me to arrange a time and day.

The Masters has been and gone and although the final round was a bit of an anti climax it was a great tournament to watch as always in beautiful surroundings.

The next major will be the US Open which starts on 12th June and will be held this year at Pinehurst No.2. Just in Rose will be trying to defend his title around a very difficult golf course. The same golf course will also be used for the Women’s US Open this year.

Well that’s it from me for now, I hope to see you all down at the driving range over the next few days practising hard and getting your game in shape for the rest of the season.



Positive Attitude Sees Dufner Over The Line

Well he has finally done it after 2 years of hurt since he threw away a big lead at the PGA Championship in 2011 held in Atlanta. He was then beaten by good friend Keegan Bradley in a thrilling play-off and it was Bradley that was first to congratulate him after his triumph last evening.

In his speech he said that his ‘aggressive attitude paid off’, and it was a terrific final round of golf which saw him reach four under par through sixteen holes.

Furyk tried his best to keep in touch, and was two behind with two holes left, but both players could only mange bogeys in the last two holes of play which was enough to give Dufner the title that he so thoroughly deserved.

We that’s for the majors this year which is hard to believe, I really think they need to add another major between the PGA Championship and The Masters. There is too much of a break. If they had one in October that would space things out nicely. Let me know what you think?


It’s Time For A European To Win The Masters

The long wait is nearly over until the first major of the season gets underway next week at Augusta, and it’s felt like a long time coming through these cold winter days that seem to be never ending. But you can almost smell the sun and the Azaleas now!

The Masters has always been an event in which European players have done well in past. We’ve had many winners in the last few decades including, Nick Faldo, Ian Woosnam, Sandy Lyle, Jose Maria Olazabal and of course the great Seve and I think we could add to that list this year.

With 38 European Tour players getting their places and heading to Augusta National next week we really do have a great chance of seeing one of them coming back with the Green Jacket.
