The York Golf Club PGA Golf Professional
With so much momentum and enthusiasm around our club this year it is certainly flying by!
It's hard to believe that our Captains' days will be taking place this weekend. Let's hope that the good weather continues for David and Val. There are lots of events planned over the coming days with a few spaces left for the competitions scheduled including Mens (Sat) , Mixed (Sun) and Ladies (Tues). Full details are available on the main notice board or the online booking system.
In addition to a busy week at the club we have had a couple of away matches too. Last Thursday we played at Sand Moor. Being just around the corner from Moortown and Alwoodley, Sand Moor is often overlooked as somewhere to play but it is a very enjoyable course to play. David and I had a very close game before succumbing to defeat on the 17th. Unfortunately the rest of the team fared no better but everyone had a great time.
Yesterday we were away at Headingly which is another lovely course. Once again in our match against their Captain and Pro, we had a great game which went in our favour on the 16th with the result being a draw.
These matches are a great way of playing other courses and there are still several matches left. Please check the notice board in the locker room if you would like to play.
Another great way to play other courses in the area is by using the reciprocal arrangement we have with other clubs. Great examples include playing Sand Moor for £27.50, Moor Allerton £20 and Harrogate for £18. If you would like further details please click here.
The US Open was great viewing last weekend and it was quite clear to see how many competitors were using TaylorMade M woods including the winner Brooks Koepka.
With an extensive range of heads and shafts available to suit all golfers why not click here to arrange a fitting to see why these clubs are the hottest woods in golf.
Continuing the US Open theme we still have a few of the limited edition Titleist ProV1 balls with the commemorative number 69.
Be sure to act quick as there will be no more.
Good news, one of our most popular promotions has started today - The Shirt Amnesty.
If you bring in an old shirt (any will do), we will give you £10 OFF any new new shirt in stock.
This offer applies to all our ranges including the ladies clothing!
Freshen the wardrobe with 'one in and one out'
There's no arguing that Ryder Cup player Brooks Koepka was the deserved winner of the 117th US Open at Erin Hills. The American carded a wonderful final round of 67 to win by four, having gone into Sunday one shot off the lead alongside playing partner Tommy Fleetwood.
Justin Thomas also found himself one shot back with 18 holes to play, something which looked rather unlikely before a historic 63 vaulted him up the leader board on 'moving day' whilst breaking the record for the lowest-ever US Open round in the process.
But this wasn't the only record to fall last week, as Koepka's four-round total (16 under) equalled the US Open's lowest winning score which was previously set by Rory McIlroy back in 2011.
With much of the pre-tournament hype focusing on the penal rough lining the fairways, it probably doesn't come as a surprise to learn that Koepka hit 49 out of 56 fairways across the four days whilst also managing to find 62 out 72 greens in regulation - including 17 during his final round! Truly impressive golf.
So what did you make of it all?
