All quiet on the playing front this week as the professionals lick their wounds from last weeks Kent Open. Lets hope they find some time for practice this next week before their next outing.
On the plus side it was great to see young Sam Passmore reap the rewards for his constant practice and hard work in winning the Brian Edwards Trophy and the Committee Trophy. Sam is a different man these last 6 months. He does his job well, never complains, puts his head down and gets on with what needs doing and that includes finding the time to practice and practice well. He thoroughly deserves his wins.
Pace of Play - Players should play at a good pace. It is a group's responsibility to keep up with the group in front. If it loses a clear hole and it is delaying the group behind, it should invite the group behind to play through, irrespective of the number of players in that group. Where a group has not lost a clear hole, but it is apparent that the group behind can play faster, it should invite the faster moving group to play through.
Be Ready to Play - Players should be ready to play as soon as it is their turn to play. When playing on or near the putting green, they should leave their bags or carts in such a position as will enable quick movement off the green and towards the next tee. When the play of a hole has been completed, players should immediately leave the putting green.
Lost Ball - If a player believes his ball may be lost outside a water hazard or is out of bounds, to save time, he should play a provisional ball. Players searching for a ball should signal the players in the group behind them to play through as soon as it becomes apparent that the ball will not easily be found. They should not search for five minutes before doing so.
Josh Greig (10) continued his good form in winning The Junior Academy Spring Masters.
Another solid performance which saw him finish 2cm from the 9th hole in the 36 shot format. He was closely followed by Cameron James Gibson just off the 9th green and Jay Eggleton 10 yrds further back.

Sam Passmore was doubly victorious at the weekend winning the Brian Edwards and Committee Trophy with a gross 76 and nett 69, respectively.
Despite the lovely weather, conditions were tough with some very awkward pin positions. Well done to Sam, who played a magnificent round of golf.
Terry Vanhinsberg was second in the Brian Edwards with a score of 80 and Paul Field was second in the handicap competition with a nett 72.
There was an extremely good Vets representation at Mick Unwin's funeral last Friday along with some members from the Men's section.
Thanks to the early risers this week: John Oswin and Les Irvine for card duty and John Taylor for clubhouse duty.
John Oswin and Dave Marsden were presented, a bit belatedly, with their trophies for winning the winter eclectic competition. John won the 9-hole competition, much to his surprise after a long lay off, and Dave the George Higgins Rosebowl for the main event.
Coronation Foursomes - Congratulations to Pauline Kirkman and Heather Tomsett who were the winners of the Coronation Foursomes competition with a score of 33 points. Fingers crossed this will be a high enough score to get them to one of the regional finals - 27 points has been known as a qualifier in the past, so you never can tell!
