Captain's Weekend 2016
A huge congratulations to our Captain, John Fletcher who once again put on a fantastic weekend for all involved.
With the course in tip top shape and straight forward pin positions on Saturday, we saw some low scores and Daniel Holderness topped the field with a fine nett 65.
Sunday saw the leaders tee off in heavy rain, this coupled with much harder pin positions gave the players a tough task ahead.
Alex Webb who had two rounds of 68 nett came out on top and claimed his first Major at PGC.
Our juniors had a day out at Worsley Marriott over the weekend! Well done to the winners and all the players at this year's Junior Away Day at Worsley Park, Manchester. Harry Tierney
won the best stroke score and James Nelson
the stableford competition.
Thanks to Andrew
for providing the prizes and Guy Dobson
for the mini bus that made us arrive like a professional team and in style.
A fantastic day was had by all with the Marriott being very welcoming. Expert Fitting and Tuition on your doorstep
This week I have had a brilliant time helping my members improve their swings and club performance, using Flightscope and video analysis. Geoff Kempster
opted for custom fitted PING G irons and hybrid with exotic shaft upgrade, having improved his distances, launch angles and dispersion. Matt Baker
gained 15mph of clubhead speed and 40 yards distance with help on his technique before we fine-tuned him into a PING G LS-TEC. Ash Patel
is working with me on finding some irons to suit his game at the moment and once again we are finding that it is essential to improve technique and equipment in order to achieve best results. Below you can see on the video shot the improved move Ash
is now making, and this has made a huge impact to his trajectory.
Well done to all this week and I look forward to hearing all about your progress in the coming weeks! Qualify to play in our Pro Am with your Professional Andrew Greenbank
