Cleobury Mortimer Golf Club Director of Golf
Welcome once again to the CMGC newsletter,
Who's excited for The Masters then? I think we can all agree that Mr Dustin Johnson will be extremely confident when teeing it up at The Masters on Thursday, 6 April and with the form he is in (winning his last three tournaments including two WGC events) it's hard to look past him as the winner.
However, for a bit of fun Matt, Amy, Tom and myself will all be predicting who we think will do well at Augusta which will be featured in next week's newsletter.
Who's Ready For The Season?
So who's ready for the golfing season? With the clocks changing and the weather gradually improving we start to focus on the golfing year ahead, with that in mind what are your golfing ambitions for the upcoming year? Is it to get your handicap down, win a trophy, meet new golfers or simply play more golf?
Click here and let us know what your golfing ambitions are and we can offer some advice on how to achieve these!
Matt Set For a Fairish Season
Matt has just completed the Lucky 7 package with myself with a nine-hole 5 over gross around Badgers Sett in the playing lesson which is 6 under his handicap!
Matt plays off 22 but will be down to 18 very shortly. He has bags of ability and he was also kind enough to text me his after a session in the studio...
"I'm really pleased with how things are going mate. Like I said in the session, you've allowed me to figure things out myself and at my own pace, in a structured environment and with great feedback from both the video/still shots and the SkyTrak numbers.
Rather than trying to change everything to fit the ideal prototype swing, you've allowed me to make things work for me and my swing/ability. You joked about me giving myself the lessons, but I think that's a real compliment to you and your method where you're allowing me to play around with ideas. Some work, some don't, but the overall results are really starting to shine through."
Look out for Matt winning some competitions very soon.
Personalised Titleist Pro V1 Or Pro V1X - 4 For 3 Deal
We have mentioned this in the last few newsletters with a number of members and visitors taking up this fantastic offer, but we didn't want any Pro V1/ Pro V1X loyalists missing out on this deal so we thought we would mention it again.
You can pick up four dozen personalised Pro V1 or Pro V1X's for just £128.97 (less than £32.25 per dozen), if you wanted a custom number other than 1-8 it would be just an extra £3.33 per dozen.
It's also worth bearing in mind that you could group together with some friends on this, agree on what text you would like, whether you want the Pro V1 or Pro V1X and split the cost, so you and a friend could have two dozen each or if your usual four ball all play Pro V1's then you could grab a dozen each.
Tom is looking at grouping together with the Scratch Team to do an order so if any scratch team players fancy getting involved please get in touch with Tom.

Don't forget, in a recent poll from Midlands Golf Magazine we were voted:
- 'The most picturesque golf course in Shropshire'
- 6th Badgers Sett was voted the best hole in Shropshire and...
- Voted 7th best course in the whole of the Midlands
So why not come and join in the fun at CMGC.
CMGC On Tour - Bob Barlow
It was going to take something special to compete with the standards set at Shropshire's finest, but I managed to find the perfect course when I played at Nirwana Golf Club in Bali a couple of weeks ago.
The course was designed by Greg Norman and features some extremely challenging holes with unbelievable scenery along the coastline.
Tiger Woods and Phil Mickleson played here recently and following a recent acquisition of the club/hotel etc. Phil has been tasked with redesigning a new course which will result in the existing course being closed down for a couple of years at the end of June 2017.
The new owner is a guy called Donald Trump. Not sure what his background is but I believe he has political aspirations!
Don't be fooled by my caddie's attire as both ladies play off single figures, however they were clearly impressed by my creative play and innovative approach shots on to the greens/in to the sea.
Jack Takes Top Spot
With Spring here and even the threat of some sunshine, it was time for the qualifiers to start.
Saturday saw some lovely weather but the wind picked up making it tough scoring conditions throughout the day with Lewis Hodges level par 36 points the best of the day.
On Sunday, Mark Greenfield shot 35 points, however the last player out on Sunday would demolish the field with his fantastic scoring. Junior Captain and current Worcestershire Boys Match Play Champion Jack Severn shot an incredible 41 points which included seven birdies.
What makes Jack's score even more incredible is that he failed to score on two holes! With form like this we could potentially see the course record broken at some point this year.
Jack had this to say:
"With my new driver in the bag I was feeling confident off the tee, I didn't miss a fairway all day which definitely helped me score well. I have been working hard on my game over the winter and my whole game came together which has given me a confidence boost ready for the season ahead".
1st - Jack Severn - 41 Points
2nd - Lewis Hodges - 36 Points
3rd - Mark Greenfield - 35 points
Have a great week, the CMGC team.
