New PING G30 range launching here first
There has been quite a buzz in the golf world this week as PING have unveiled their new line of PING G30 clubs. They will officially launch in shops at the end of July but the driver has already been used by some Tour Professionals, including Angel Cabrera who won the latest tournament on the US PGA tour using the new driver and 3 wood for the first time. Cabrera had the longest average drive throughout the week of 307 yards and hit over 80% of fairways - long AND straight! The most striking thing that you will notice with the new G30 driver is that it boasts some pretty funky looking ridges on the crown called 'turbulators' which improves aerodynamics and increases distance.
Watch this video of Bubba Watson trying out the new G30 driver and you can see for yourself what all the buzz is about!

Kieran wins the July Medal
Another one of our budding youngsters triumphed in the July Medal, Kieran Underwood continued his good season with a brilliant nett 65. His round really came alive on the back nine with a run of four pars and two birdies between holes eleven to seventeen. Ian Daines also played well to finish in second place with a nett 66 including a good birdie on seventeen, and in third place was another consistent golfer in Steve Bond with a very solid round of nett 66 playing off his 5 handicap he scored four birdies in his round including three on the front nine.
It's a big weekend coming up as we play our Club Championship on Saturday at 12pm, remember there is a prize for the best nett and best gross score so it's open to members of all handicaps!
Last week we brought you a report of the Lady Captain's Away Day at Wirral Ladies but unfortunately we forgot to include the photos! So here they are this week for you to have a look at including a photo of Margaret Cherry, Bobbie Mulcahy and Sandra Peake sat on a bench re-enacting a famous film, can you tell which one?!
The Seniors Summer Special was played on Tuesday, this is a Stableford played from the white tees on the front nine and the back nine from the yellow tees. The format certainly suited Frank Yarwood who blitzed around the course for a total of 45 points, with 23 on the front and 22 on the back. This was just good enough to beat Roger Wilkinson who scored an amazing 27 points on the back nine to finish with 44 points, Bob Bowen finished third also on 44 points. Next week the Seniors play a Texas Scramble.
