There is a Men’s Medal on Saturday with tee times still available so again ring or pop in to the golf centre and jot your name down.
Head professional Phil Moore
This week has been my busiest week since I started at CMGC word is spreading out my lesson successes and philosophy and it is great to have a packed diary with golfers looking to improve. The get into golf sessions have also been greatly received with the men’s classes filling up so quick I have now offered another time. The greens at CMGC are currently really fast therefore this week my tip is out being better from short distances just encase you hit your first putt too hard and left with a short one coming back.
Better your scores with better short range putting
The secret to becoming a better and more consistent scorer, is to hole more putts from within 10 feet. How many times have you watched the European or PGA Tours on a Sunday and players are holing clutch putts from around 10-12 feet to save par and to keep their rounds going? Holing putts from these distances do add up at the end of the round.
A drill that I find to be very effective in helping your short range putting is to place a series of tees in the ground. I would have four tees a putters length away, four tees two putters length away and four tees three putters length away. The goal is to hole all 12 putts in a row without missing one. The player will start the drill by holing all the putts from a putters length, before moving onto the putts from 2 putters length away and finally putts from the 3 putters length away distance. Holing all 12 putts in a row will test your consistency and you will experience pressure like you would during a tournament, especially if you have holed 11 putts in a row and you have only one more putt to hole to finish the drill. Try this drill today to improve your putting!

Had a quality week at the open last week…. who read our weekly newsletter? If you took our advice and bet on our predictions you would be in the money! See below….
This week is also one of the most important weeks of the year… Open week interest in golf massively increases this week with the worlds best contesting our links golf. I was lucky enough to head up on Tuesday to Royal Liverpool and the course is set up a treat. The greens are quick, small and have some horrid breaks in them. The key to this tournament will be tee shots some of them are ridiculously tight and just missing the fairways put you in some thick wispy grass where the only real option is to just get the ball out and back into play. I managed to meet Adam Scott, Rickie Fowler, Henrick Stenson, Jason Dufner, Luke Donald and Keegan Bradley none of them gave much away about their chances for the tournament however both Adam Scott and Rickie Fowler said they were hitting the ball great…. So that’s where my money is going.
Golf centre predictions
Dave – Adam Scott
Phil – Rory Mcilroy
Matt – Tiger Woods
Tom – not sure on the winner but Rickie Fowler is even money to finish in the top 20 which is my bet.
Huge well done to Ian Dennis who picked out Rory McIlroy in the CMGC sweep. Pictured is Ian with his new FootJoy shirts and Titleist UK & Ireland golf bag!
The sweep results are as follow…
1st Ian Dennis
2nd Jenny Dorrell

4th Graham Butcher
There were also 6 players that were drawn and not playing because of injury we put them all into a pot and Mike Wood was pulled out who wins a Footjoy glove.
Pain’s Mawley Milk Trophy medal 20/7/14
After heavy storms and thunder on Saturday glorious sunshine greeted the members of Cleobury on Sunday for the medal. It was extra special as it was a trophy competition contesting for the Pain’s Mawley Milk Trophy.
With a medal card in hand many golfers were falling under the pressure with some 9’s and 10’s recorded and wrecking some good rounds.
Dave Walker was in fine form and shot a nett 70 to take second place. However the man in form was someone who knows how to handle a low score. Ross Moorecroft shot a nett 63 despite bogeying the last three holes.
'I have been playing well recently and felt a good score was not too far away, this is my second win of the season and my first trophy, there are some big competitions coming up, I just hope my form continues'.
1st - Ross Moorecroft
2nd - Dave Walker
3rd - Ian Dennis
Nearest the pin 6th badgers - Roll over
Nearest the pin 5th Deer Park - Bob Lucas
Footy scratch card - couple more to sell on this weeks roll up before the winner is revealed.

CMGC Weddings and party bookings.
We have seen a massive surge in wedding and party bookings over the last 8 weeks due to word spreading about how good of a venue CMGC is. The Wyre Suite overlooks the 9th of deer park has a large patio, onsite parking and you are free to decorate the room as you wish. There a certainly no place in Cleobury that can offer this and not many in the local area.
The staff at CMGC have a can do attitude and put menus and parties together to bespoke to the occasion. The fantastic feedback from the wedding of the new Mr and Mrs Colgan over the weekend certainly brings it home.
Thank you so much for an amazing day. Couldn’t have possibly asked for better staff, food and venue you were all amazing. Love the new Mr & Mrs.
Please get in touch with rose on email@example.com to enquire for any function you may

Well played ladies
scratch team update
as many of you will know the scratch team is very much in a transitional stage with the back bone of the former team now professionals at uni, on tour or working away.
Great to see the team back to winning ways with a 4.5 - 3.5 win over North Warwickshire on Sunday.
Wins at home to Brocton and away to North Warwickshire will see the team retain its current league position.
Like I said it is very much in transition at the moment with new players and the next crop of CMGC youngsters being blooded into the team!
The future looks bright.
tough times dont last, tough teams do! #teamcmgc
