Congratulations to Deirdre Smith who won the Scratch Cup in Royal Co Down on Sunday 8th April. This was played over 36 holes and Deirdre played some absolutely fantastic golf. She had a rocky start but pulled numerous birdies out of the bag and went into the lead. She was absolutely delighted with her win and Dundalk Ladies would like to offer our congratulations to Deirdre on this superb victory.

 

Leslie and Jean Give Great Advice

On Tuesday 3rd April Leslie Walker and Jean Connolly gave a very valuable talk to the ladies. Leslie has been coaching the ladies for a number of weeks and has been focusing on various aspects of the game of golf. Tonight Leslie spoke about the importance of preparation for the upcoming club matches. He spoke about the importance of supporting each other as teams and creating that team spirit that is vital in winning matches. Leslie has a very positive attitude and emphasised how essential it is to create positivity among the team players.

Jean Connolly is renowned for her expertise in Mindfulness and she spoke about the importance of being positive and relaxed when playing matches. She gave some tips on breathing techniques that help ground us when playing golf. Jean emphasised how mindfulness reduces stress and helps decrease negative thinking.

This was an interesting evening and the ladies felt uplifted after the presentations. Lady Captain Pat thanked Leslie and Jean for the invaluable advice and presented Leslie with a gift for the support he offers the ladies.
