Wonderful Week For White Dragon Golf.

I was in a four ball yesterday . at Paraparaumu Beach Golf Club, where three of the payers were using a White Dragon Putter, it was a great thrill for me to actually play with people who use one of my putters. I was stunned as one of them went on to one putt the first five holes, which put my partner and I four down at the turn. Normal service was resumed on the back nine as we fought back to level the scores on the 18th. We celebrated in the 19th, as usual.

If you ever come to visit Paraparaumu Golf Club you will find the bar staff are very friendly, along with the staff in the Pro shop, lead by Ricky. Our caterer Dave can also offer you some good food, so all in all you probably wont find a better golf course and more friendly staff that you will find at Paraparaumu.

Actually last weekend I won a Club tournament at Paraparaumu, a pairs competition in an unusual format. The 96 players were grouped into flights, according to handicap. This meant all groups were pretty evenly matched. There were five rounds of matches played over nine holes, 27 on the Saturday and 18 on Sunday,  competing against all the teams in your flight in turn. A point was awarded for every hole won, and of course one deducted for every hole lost. A book was run on the event and you could “buy’ a flight at auction, betting on who would win each flight. There were both mens and ladies teams competing, and it was a lovely weekend for golf.

Strongly supported by my partner, David Harris, we not only  not only won our flight but took the overall title as well, with a total score of  +12. Got my name on a piece of silverware. As you can see in the presentation photo below I had already consumed my fair share of alcohol before the presentation, lucky for me my wife Wendy was picking me up at the end of the day.

That’s a wide-eyed me, our Sponsor from Glassfit Ltd Paul Whittleston, who was in our flight and was not best pleased that we beat him, and partner David Harris.

I have just heard that a White Dragon Putter customer has recorded a win in a competition.

New Zealand, Paraparaumu Beach Golf Club member Brent Hartridge, won the Sunday Stableford competition, with a points score of 41 with a round of 86. Congratulations to Brent, who when speaking in the members lounge after his round said;

” I did not three putt once today”

Another good report came from Steve, in London, who put a message on our Facebook page, http://www.facebook.com/pages/Whitedragon/150707995082605

Message read;

“Using White Dragon putter superb will not be going back to Ping putter”

Adam Scott to Banish his Broomstick

Although any potential banning of anchored putters by the Royal & Ancient and USGA is unlikely to be enforced before 2016, Adam Scott is obviously keen to make the adjustment to sooner rather than later by banishing his Broomstick for a practice round with a conventional putter. Adam is practicing for the Emirates Australian Open at at The Lakes Golf Club in Sydney, coincidentally with Tom Watson who is in favor of the ban on the Broomstick. Tom said he endorses the ban with mixed emotions citing this reason;

” I say that with mixed emotions, “This  broomstick stroke is not a stroke of golf. That’s not a stroke but it makes it easier to play. My son Michael, with a conventional putting stroke, he couldn’t make it from two feet half the time, but he went to a belly putter and he makes everything. The game is fun to him now, so there lies the danger: Do we take the ability for people to have fun away?  Do we go to two sets of rules, where some people can use long putters in certain competitions, but the PGA Tour maybe can’t? So there’s a dilemma there.” 

It would seem that Tom is confused himself about what this rule change could do to golf generally. I have said previously that there is going to be trouble enforcing this rule at the local level. A player is going to call his opponent for anchoring, and the accused is going to reply, no I didn’t. This can only bring discontent and bad feelings out on the course, and that is not a good or healthy scenario.

Tom went on recount what Ernie Els said after his win at The Open;

“”I thought Ernie Els said it perfectly after he won last year’s Open championship, he was asked: ‘Why did you go with the long putter Ernie?’ and he said: ‘I’m cheating like the rest of them are’. Ernie’s a great player and he knows the difference between doing it the conventional way versus trying to do it with an anchored putter. The arc of your putter doesn’t change as much. He knows that difference and he knows it’s not right.”

The thing is every player has had the option to use the long putters if they wish, if it so much easier with a long putter, why haven’t they all swapped over ?  I say lets banish the ban and get on and play golf, everyone is welcome at our golf course, Paraparaumu Beach Golf Club. Make them welcome at your club, for the good of the game.

But if you are considering a new putter check out the White Dragon Putter, it is set to become a feature of putting in the near future, for more information email info@whitedragongolf.com.
