“Siemless” wire-to-wire win in Morocco for Marcel! 

A belated “congratulations” (on the Forum, at least - apologies for the technical hitch) to Marcel Siem for taking his second European Tour title in as many years since his return to Mizuno. (And another win this year for our MP-69 irons, following Chris Wood’s victory in Qatar.) 

Marcel wears his heart on his sleeve and has a wild passion for the game of golf. He’s always been a talented player but in the past couple of years he’s learned to channel all his emotion more positively and that’s instantly shown in his form and results – he won the French Open last year and went on to finish 14th in the Race to Dubai money list. 

The course in Morocco, in the King’s walled garden, can be very tricky. Small greens that are tightly guarded by deep bunkers and run-off areas, and normally combined with a stiff breeze off the sea, means patience here is crucial.

Leading from start to finish adds other pressures too, and just watching him play over the weekend was nerve-wracking enough!
 A couple of times the right hand came off the club, but the ball landed 8 feet or so from the pin. There were fist-pumps early on when crucial putts were holed, knock-downs, convoluted follow-throughs and a couple of scrambles from parts of the course where you wouldn’t want to be, especially on a Sunday afternoon! 

So here are a few images, courtesy of Getty, to celebrate his win…

Yep, some nice pics there!

We’ve had a great week so far in Valencia at the Open de Espana. We last visited the delightful El Saler course in 2001, and it’s proven to be a very popular choice with the players who love the links layout.  

As it’s the first tournament we’ve attended this year with the workshop we’ve been pretty busy! The players were delighted to see us and took the opportunity to get their clubs checked over and replaced as necessary. So we had plenty of maintenance work to do including re-grips and checking loft and lies, and made up quite a few new wedges and a couple of sets of irons. 

We built Magnus Carlsson a new set of MP-64s, complete with T4 wedges and an H4 2 iron, Ricardo Gonzalez took a couple of MP-T4 wedges and Ignacio Garrido put a couple of new JPX wedges in his bag. We did some work with Lasse Jensen on his 3 wood and hybrid and he’s taken a couple of MP-650 and JPX825 clubs to do some more testing next week. 
 

We have the good site for the workshop on the right hand side of the first hole and the weather is perfect – it’s great to be back out again!

I remember those days, now that's when making a club was a real craftsmen job. It's a lost easier now a days with advances in technology, but when you had to put a face insert into a wooden driver it was a a liquid job with a dam built round it to stop it leaking. Then...you had to file it down to the right shape before stripping and revarnishing prior to handing it back to the owner.... all that for £20 back in the 90's!!! Oh and don't mention putting the binding/whipping back on...
