Ross on Wye member Pat Watkins has started the season in fine style winning the Nett and Gross of the Little Weston Shield on Tuesday. Pat has worked hard on her short game through the winter with myself and its great to see it paying off.
These two young golfers with handicaps of scratch and 1 are a real promise for the future. They have a great attitude towards the game and understand how much hard work is required to reach their goals. They both achieved a fantastic score of one under par to take the top prize in the Gloucestershire schools championship held at Tewkesbury Park earlier this month
Jeremy recently won the Seniors Mid week medal with a fantastic 66 nett winning by 3 shorts and beating 83 of his fellow seniors. He regularly attends the senior coffee mornings and finds the tution invaluable.
Sam is one of our Junior academy members; he has won the last two weekly 9 hole competitions. With great scores of over 22 points his handicap is due to drop again and it won’t be long before he is teeing up with the men.
Former Ryder Cup player who beat Phil Mickelson in the singles at the Belfry in 2002 has recently turned 50 and qualified to play on the Seniors Champions tour in America.
Not completely happy with his putting at the start of the season Phil has visited me on three occassions and is implementing the changes we have made nicely.
His start on the tour has been good with solid performances finishing 25th and 26th place, he is currently 51st on the order of merit, after only four events.
Becky has has a tough start to the season on the LPGA due to injury but is now back fighting fit and has started this week with a great score of four under in the Lotte Championship in Hawaii.
We have been working together for just over a year and her putting stats have certainly improved as has her confidence.
Local professional Ross Langdon of Brickhampton has been in good form qualifying to play on the Euro-pro tour this season. Getting through the regional qualifying at The players club in Bristol before finishing in the top 5 at final qualifying in Frilford Heath. This has given Ross the opportunity to follow his dream of getting onto the European tour. Ross is a big fan of AimPoint and the SAM Putt Lab and feels like his putting has gone from from strength to strength since we started working together a couple of years ago.
