John Booth - Our Captain for 2019 had only officiated at our opening game before he was diagnosed with a serious heart condition which will neccessitate him undergoing open-heart surgery. This will probably keep him from playing golf for the remainder of the season. I'm sure we all wish John the best for his operation and recovery, I hope that we will welcome him back later in the season. I will post updates here as I get them.

John Booth is awaiting a heart operation

Update 20th May, John is still awaiting the operation, He has had his pre-med and is due in to the hospital for an angiogram on Wednesday with the hope tht he will get the operation done within the next two weeks. Let's hope he gets the surgery behind him soon so that he can get on the road to recovery..

Roger Jenkins - Our old mate Roger Jenkins, or Dodger as he is better known, has been back from Spain to receive medical treatment. He has been in hospital suffering with a lung infection and heart arrhythmia. Fortunately he has now been discharged and has returned to Spain to recupperate. I have sent best wishes for a speedy recovery from his old friends in the Wedges.

Ruth Madoc - As everyone knows, our patron has been touring with the show Calendar Girls. Tragically Ruth fell on stage while warming up prior to the show in Dublin last week. Ruth has broken her right hip and femur in three places, she had an operation on Friday 1st February to pin the breaks. She is currently still in hospital in Dublin and is hoping to be transferred to Morriston hospital next Monday (11th February).

I'm sure we all wish Ruth a speedy recovery and in the meantime a well deserved rest while John looks after her

Update: Ruth is making good progress and hopes that she will be able to rejoin the Calendar Girld tour in September..

Rod Woodward - After Rod's outstanding return performance on the Royal Variety Show, he is embarking on a tour. I've already got my tickets for Blackwood, I hope that the other Wedges can get to see hime at one of the venues listed below.


Our good friend and patron Ruth Madoc has embarked on a long tour of Calendar Girls, The Musical . With music written by Gary Barlow. We will have to wait a while to see her in Cardiff but if you are in any of the other places or have friends in those areas then please spread the word. Please see the notice re Ruth on the left.

Doberman - I was sent the photo below by one of our members who I shalln't name (KM)

"Hello, Doberman Cabs, can I help you? What do you mean Colin's marked my card?"

" I can do Cimla to Swansea Bay return for £30 but don’t keep on about my handicap"
