Good Things Come To Those Who Wait
84 Year old Ray Woodmansey, a member of Driffield Golf Club for 24 years amazed his playing partners last week by holing his 150 yard approach shot at Driffield's 18th hole. This incredible feat gave Ray an 'easy' par 4 on the 418 yard hole.
He used a Dunlop Hybrid club and a Top Flite golf ball.
His delighted playing partners were Martin Doolan, Peter Cotterill and Bill Spear.

ARE YOU PREPARED?
With the winter weather moving in, now is the very best time to re-new your golf cleats and spikes. We offer a free fitting service, so all you need to do is drop your shoes off and they will be ready the next time you play.
Grip it and Rip It
Be sure your grips offer plenty of traction, there is nothing worse than slippery grips in damp weather. Not only will it affect your play but if the club accidentally comes out of your hands it may well endanger other people.
Stay warm and look cool
As many weather hardened competitors who took part in the recent Christmas Open AmAm here is Terry McCune wrapped up in one of the Pro Shop's stylish weatherproof jackets. On sale now for just £59.99. If you want to look this good take a look in the Pro's Shop.
We have a selection of base layers, sweaters and outerwear to keep you warm, but more importantly not hinder your golf swing. It's often overlooked when buying golf clothes the importance of free movement, so come in store and ask for my advice on the best set up for you.
