New TaylorMade Signings Exclusive To Epsom GC
Now you may have heard about Rory McIlroy signing a long-term contract with TaylorMade, worth a rumoured $100 million. However, I have an exclusive for you! TaylorMade have been in contact after hearing about our very own Men's Captain David Barnett's fantastic performances over the weekend with their latest equipment. From the two unbelievable shots to reach the 15th against the wind in Saturday's 5Up Captain and Pro Match victory against Rich Halifax and Ray Williams (sorry chaps couldn't resist) to the gross 68 he shot to win the Jubilee Cup on Sunday. So I believe there's a TaylorMade contract on the table, not sure if it quite reaches the $100 million mark, but I will be negotiating hard on The Captain's behalf!
It was also a good weekend for the club in the knockouts with Mike Lower and Mike Dowdell winning through to the next round of The Daily Mail Foursomes in a 19th hole thriller down at Horton Park Golf Club.
Horton Park probably don't ever want to hear the name Epsom Golf Club again as on the same weekend our Surrey 5 'A' team beat them 3 - 2 to advance through to the next round. The 'B' team on Saturday also had a very close match against the Banstead Downs Artisans with Captain Rob Jones charging down the first extra hole to take overall victory 3 - 2. Well played to all chaps representing the club this weekend.
Not Forgetting The Ladies...
This week we have had the Ladies Spring Meeting and over the two days there were a number of titles up for grabs and the first winner was Jean Kenny who won The Bruce with a superb nett 67. The Lillian Macksey was then won by Pat Foot with a terrific nett 68 and finally the Norman Cup for the gross best was taken by that lady again, Jean Kenny.
Wednesday saw all the ladies heading out in their pairs for a shotgun start at 9:00am for the greensomes competition and coming out on top of the field was the pair of Sue Becksmith and Angie Stevenson to lift The Salver… well played ladies.
The golf was followed by what I hear was a beautiful lunch and all the ladies enjoyed receiving the many trophies handed out at the presentation, judging by all the prize vouchers that are flooding back into the pro shop.
