STRATEGISTS GOLF SOCIETY SWINLEY EVENT DECIDED BY A THREE WAY COUNTBACK

Hi Everyone
We enjoyed another great day at the exclusive Swinley Forest Golf Club today.
We had an excellent turnout and were blessed by some fine dry weather.
In a keenly fought competition and a first ever for a 36 holes stableford whereby our top three were all tied with 66 points
David Williams beat Rob Toguri and Tony George on countback. Well done David.
Oliver Lazenby won the morning with 39 points and Mike Moore took the spoils in the afternoon with 37 points.
Thank you to everyone who played and I look forward to seeing you at our next event on June 4 at Tandridge Golf Club. Full details of the day will soon follow
Have a great weekend

Speith masterclass sees him win The Masters wire to wire and golf’s “new kid on the block” announces himself on the golfing stage

Jordan Speith Masters

Augusta National once again delivered another fantastic week’s golf and hopefully it will inspire the next generation. All the focus was on Rory Mcilroy beforehand and whether he could complete his Grand Slam, what emerged is he has a genuine rival in the modern game. Enter Jordan Speith who blew the field away in rounds 1 and 2 with a sublime 64 followed by a 66. Despite all the household names mounting a great challenge he remained calm and composed and completed his victory on Sunday evening to win the Green Jacket. We will all be practicing his putting routine where he watches the hole and not the ball on short putts, I would love to know what you think about it.

It was great to see Tiger, Phil, Justin and Rory all up there and it now promises to be an exciting season.

On a separate note it was fantastic to see so many youngsters attend out Easter Golf Camps. The weather was kind and hopefully Jordan Speith will inspire them all to greater things.

Have a great week

Masters week heralds the start of the golf season

US Masters

Augusta National in the spring is probably the most picturesque place on earth. Having enjoyed the most amazing experience in 2007 the Masters signals the start of the Majors and the catalyst for us all to get the clubs out again.

Who’s going to win? I can’t call that but would fancy Bubba Watson to go close again if his game is good as the course just so suits him. I would love to see Rory complete his own “Grand Slam” and I hope that Tiger has overcome his injuries and plays like he can.

So if the Masters inspires you to get out and play why not come and have a lesson and give golf a go. Wexham supports the Sport England initiative “GET INTO GOLF” where you can come and have some fun and enjoy the many challenges and health benefits that golf has to offer

Lessons are always available and I have a group class starting on Thursday May 12 6.30pm-7.30pm at just £29.99 for 5 weeks. Just email me to book in.

Mike also won longest drive with a 269 yard blow on the 15th and Ki Turner was closest to the pin on the 3rd hole. Congratulations to all the winners.

SPRING NEWSLETTER FROM MARTIN HEYS GOLF AT WEXHAM PARK GOLF CENTRE

Hi Everyone

Spring is here and your season starts here. I must firstly thank everyone who has braved the elements to support us at the club over the winter months, it is really appreciated.
The season is fast approaching and I am offering our popular Individual coaching package of 3 hours coaching for £99. This is a great gift for a birthday or Mothers Day.
Individual lessons remain the same at £22 for 30 minutes, £30 for 45 and £40 for an hour .
For small groups of up to 4 people you can always split a golf lesson which would cost £10 each for an hour………….. Just email or call me to book in a lesson.
The Improvers Mix and Match group classes have proved very popular as has the seniors roll-up groups. As the classes reach the end of the 20 week course I intend to continue with some of the lesson times, which hopefully work alongside you being able to get out and play on the golf course. Please check with me for the weekday dates and times.
COACHING CORNER
 
The left hand grip….. a key fundamental position for consistent golf
Inline images 1
  • Good left hand grip showing 2 knuckles on my left hand, check out the red dot on my glove
  • Helps prevent slicing, weak shots, poor strikes and a few other common faults.
  • Ask me next time to mark your glove to help you achieve this very important position.
Planning a corporate golf day,need to look after some key clients or customers? I specialise in creating bespoke events which really help build working relationships through golf. Please take a look at http://heysgolf.co.uk/bespoke-and-corporate-events/ and I would be delighted to help you arrange a day.
Are there any caddies out there? The Buckinghamshire Golf Club requires some caddies to work on at the pre-qualifying event at the club for the Ladies US Open in May. This is great opportunity to be inside the ropes and something I did as a 15 year old for the Ladies European Tour and repeated when working with then Kiwi No1 Lynnette Brooky.
It’s great fun, a good sound golfing knowledge is the only experience required…….and you will be paid ! Please contact me if you are interested.

GO VINESH

Hi Everyone

One of our Strategists members has just replied to the email. Let’s help Vinesh achieve his goal. Please see below;
Hi Martin, 
It may not be the ‘Sports Personality of the Year’ contest, but I am now in the running to be the Brand Ambassador for Benross golf in the UK. I am in the last 15 and need votes to finish in the top 5 and qualify for the finals. Who says middle aged men with full time jobs and high handicaps cant aspire for such things.
 
The voting is via Facebook and it would be great if you can vote for me by hitting ‘Like’ on my photo on the Benross Facebook page. Click on the link http://on.fb.me/1zlc9ie  and hit Like.. Simple. Should take less than 5 seconds and anyone can vote. It would be awesome if you can share it with the Strategist group and they can help a fellow Strategist to a middle age dream.
 
Keep swinging, 
Vinesh
 
Please let us know how you get on
Go Vinesh
