Ready Golf is an initiative that the R&A introduced following a survey across the world on all things Pace of Play. The concept indicates that players should play when they are ready to do so, rather than adhering strictly to the “farthest from the hole plays first” stipulation in the Rules of Golf. Following a number of trials across each of the three courses, in both medal and Stableford competitions we have seen some very positive results. We saved an average of twenty minutes per round in comparison to the same competitions in 2016, subsequently we have adopted Ready Golf as a standard practice across all sections at the Club, in both competitions, general play as well as all non-members that visit Woburn. Please speak with our Outside Services Team who will be pleased to offer their advice in order to implement Ready Golf into your own groups. If you continue to embrace Ready Golf as a Membership then you will add to the enjoyment of your own game as well as others. READY GOLF GUIDELINES AND TIPS: Hitting a shot when safe to do so if a player farther away faces a challenging shot and is taking time to assess their options • Shorter hitters playing first from the tee or fairway if longer hitters have to wait • Hitting a tee shot if the person with the honour is delayed in being ready to play • Hitting a shot before helping someone to look for a lost ball • Putting out unless you are standing on someone's line • Hitting a shot if a person who has just played from a greenside bunker is still farthest from the hole but is delayed due to raking the bunker • Marking scores upon immediate arrival at the next tee, except that the first player to tee off marks their card immediately after teeing off DOGS Woburn has been and remains a dog friendly Club. However, we would like to remind all members that our competition rules are clear and members are not permitted to take their dogs on the course when playing in Club competitions. We would like to remind members to ensure they clean up after their dogs, and keep them under control at all times. With the exception of the walkway through from the main entrance to the locker rooms, members are reminded not to bring their dogs into the clubhouse. KNOCKOUT COMPETITIONS The Summer knockout competitions are well underway and the first rounds are now being played. We would like to make members aware of the knockout rules on the website and more importantly, that all golfers must have active handicaps by the time their first round is played.

New clothing for Spring / Summer 2018 We are pleased to announce that we have two new clothing ranges in the Golf Shop for this year, J. Lindeberg and Adidas. All Spring and Summer ranges are now available in the shop including a junior range from Under Armour and ladies ranges from Rohnisch, Daily Sports and Abacus. Taylormade M3/M4 v Callaway Rogue Driver by Adam Ledger Twist Face presents a new face curvature with a corrective face angle on off-centre hits, designed to reduce side spin and deliver straighter shots. By providing more loft in the high-toe and less loft in the low-heel, this produces more consistent side spin in the areas where golfers commonly mis-hit. Callaway have improved their Jailbreak technology with new hour-glass shaped titanium bars that are now 25% lighter which helps stiffen the crown and sole. This allows the face to take on more impact-load to promote faster ball speeds. The Callaway Rogue Driver is also available in a Draw version and a sub zero for players who spin the ball too much. As with the M3 and M4 it comes with accompanying Fairways, Hybrids and Irons to enable you to get same feel and consistency throughout the whole bag. For the testing I used my usual specification of 10.5 stiff and hit 5 drives with each club and in comparison the Taylormade M3 driver was marginally longer than the M4 and Rogue, but it was nowhere near as forgiving and I tended to spray it left and right. I sometimes strike a lot of my shots out of the toe and the usual shot shape that follows is a low hook, however with the M4 driver I had a much higher flight with hardly any curvature, which was very surprising. It’s fair to say that the twist face does make a difference. In terms of look at address I much prefer the Taylormade drivers but in terms of feel off the face I preferred the Rogue. All things considered I would put either of the M4 or Rogue drivers in the bag tomorrow and maybe with an adjustment to the positioning of the weights the M3 would probably sneak in there too.
