Camille Chevalier, Zeki Ayan (Omega)

With season’s earnings of some 64,000 euros, Camille Chevalier (France) won the Ladies European Tour’s Rookie of the Year ranking. It’s a first for a French player since Sandrine Mendiburu in 1992… A long wait rewarded with a high end Swiss timepiece at last week’s Omega Dubai Ladies Classic. “This award means that I have reached some of my goals”, said the 23-year-old player. “I’m very happy with how I improved this year and excited to see what 2018 has in store for me.” We too…

A great idea starts with a big dream, the motto of Arnold du Toit who invented the RolleyGolf. This new golf bag carrier allows you now to effortlessly walk or ride the fairways. Either way offers an effortless round from shot to shot. A single charge lasts 36 holes, after which the lightweight RolleyGolf fits neatly into the boot of your car. On the walk mode, you can either steer the trolley using the handles, or link up to a smartphone or tablet to control it remotely.
RolleyGolf is to change the way you move on the fairways, always keeping the focus on your golf, carrying you at speeds up to 15 mph between shots all year round over most undulations commonly found on golf courses. Infos: www.rolleygolf.com

What fitting means really? To find out, a True Spec Golf studio has the right answer. At the Geneva location, certified fitters are committed to identifying the best set of clubs a player needs to perform well. With a brand diagnostic approach, they are able to offer a matrix of over 30,000 clubhead and shaft combinations. Through this process, they identify the best possible components, build specifications and explain why they work best.
At the end of the fitting process, the golfer is provided with a True Spec prescription, and a quote to purchase the recommended pieces of equipment. The aim is to fit and build the most well-constructed, precise set for the player, customized to optimize his swing performance, like any golf pro.

After 15 years of extensive work on supply quality, steady progress regarding wine making and increased mastery of the art of blending, Laurent-Perrier has unveiled “La Cuvée”. It is an original blend of their Brut champagne with a majority of Chardonnay, the rarest grape variety in the Champagne region.  This allows Laurent-Perrier to craft “La Cuvée”, a wine of great finesse after a long ageing process in the cellar. The perfect balance between freshness, delicacy and elegant fine bubbles should lead to open a bottle or two of “La Cuvée” to celebrate the coming Holiday Season (www.laurent-perrier.com/en).

We’ll be back in January in time to provide the readership with our insider original views of the golfing world. PPH

Very Happy New Year to all of you!
