Club Captains Report
Club Captains Report.
Hello to all. Hope we are enjoying the fine weather.
Well done to the winners on the weekend with the 2nd round of the Hone Heke and the Bleakly Tray which were both taken out by one very in form Martin Forest Gump Nobbs with a 61 nett to get the Hone Heke and over Cliff by a lot, so well done boys and hope you all had a good time.
THIS WEEK: Taranaki anniversary so not sure how many are away for a break but have fun - mine is forced break to Auckland, but might sneak in a game somewhere while Wifey goes shopping with the Dragon (Mother in law).
Pennants: Week 4 saw The Seniors and Manu 1 play at NP. The Seniors got a lesson in the long ball game and it shows when these young fellas hit it straight they are hard to bet ….but well done boys better luck in a couple of weeks at Stratford let’s see if we can turn it around. Manu 1 also at NP went down and sounded like there were some great putting efforts made by the Kaitake lads. Good to see we all still had fun. Manu 2 the winners of the weekend had a good 6.3 win over NP at Te Ngutu, so well done lads keep it up for the run home.
Next week is rest week as it is Taranaki Anniversary day.

PRO – TIP
ALWAYS SWING BACK SLOWLY. You never hit the ball on the backswing so there is no need for speed or effort!!
You hit the ball on the way down through the EFFORT & SPEED OF your HANDS & ARMS.
Jack Nicklaus once said “Go back slowly & even that is NOT SLOW ENOUGH !!!”
Good Luck & Good Golfing.
