Rolling's Takes Centre Stage
Massive congratulations goes to the superb Stuart Rolling's on winning the Stage Challenge Trophy. Stuart went about his work in his own quiet classy way. Afterwards he dedicated this major win to Tom Kearns, "Tom and I have been working together for some time now and I have really benefited from his advice." Well done Stuart, get that black suit pressed for the Captains dinner!
Day two of the Stage was won by the prodigious, positive, Peter Dawson. After he won he said "the trophy is not big enough and regarding the course, the hand mowed tees were too perfect. The arrow straight cut lines were off putting, the greens are far too smooth, and the fairways were cut too well. The ball was sitting up far too well for my liking. I also noticed that the coloured ink used on my personal score card was a slightly different colour and the free water, tees, pitch-mark repairers and pencils could have been placed better in their containers. The new fluffy towels in the changing room could have been fluffier. I was served in the club house far too quickly. I'm not one to complain, BUT!!!"
Well done Peter great score.
The Second Major of the Year
Erin Hills takes centre stage this week as the US Open rolls into town for the very first time.
It's probably the closest course America has to a links course we see every year at The Open with its tremendously undulating greens and fairways, not to mention the ridiculous 8,100 yardage from the back tees. Be sure to click on our Video of the Week here to view the course for yourself.
So who's in with a chance of winning? Well, accuracy off the tee is going to be paramount; not just to give the pros the best opportunity to hit the right portion of the green, but also because if they're two yards wide of the fairway then they're sure to be hacking out sideways from the two-feet tall rough.
Reigning champion Dustin Johnson is the unsurprising favourite heading into the week having been in incredible from with three wins already this year. Can you see past the world number one?
