Well, after a very wet and miserable last week, the temperatures have dropped. We have trees and lights in the shop so it can only mean one thing, in Noddy Holders words ... "IT'SSS CHRISSSTTTMASSSSS"
Gemma has done wonders with the shop this week putting together some great little gift ideas, wrapped nicely and with some great ideas for stocking fillers. We also have some great offers on some putters, woods and wedges if you fancy treating yourself this side of Christmas.
I also competed in the Beds and Cambs Gog Magog Pro Am on Tuesday. It was great to get out and play and compete, but a couple of poor tee shots left me sitting at a sad 6 Over. Although it was my first competitive round since August, so I can't be too sad. Lucky I have the studio to practice in! I will be competing and representing the club a lot more this winter in Pro Ams and then in the regional events next year. If you would like to play in any winter or summer pro ams with Ryan or myself please let us know by clicking here.
Last week also saw the culmination of our Pro Challenge event. Held Thursday morning we had 26 pairs get involved in the final day, raising more money for the British Heart Foundation, and hope everyone enjoy the day.
The Winners on the day were Jack Kenyon and Peter Kenyon with 48 stableford points.
The Winners of the Pro Challenge Champion Trophy - which takes into account the scores when pairs played Ryan and I during the year - were Steve Slack and Neil Cooke with 46 points on the day. A Big Thank you to all those involved and who participated, we already have next year's final day in the diary on a Saturday so hopefully more of you can play.

James had his first golf lesson in a number of years and within 45 minutes in the studio we had mad some great changes.
Including an increase upper body turn, more extension through the ball, leading to James being able to use his power and strength to control the ball flight and reducing the hook shot that was hurting his game.
Using the GASP LAB 4 software James managed to see what was going on and see the improvements quickly.
