Modernising Golf's Rules
Last week the R&A proposed some key changes to the Rules of Golf from 2019. Their Rules Modernisation initiative has been underway for a few years now and this is the next stage in that process. The aim is to not only make the Rules easier to understand, but also to address some of the game's current problems, such as speed of play, and ensure they fit the needs of today's game.
Please spare a couple of minutes to complete our survey, which gives you the chance to have your say on the proposed changes.
We've picked out some of the most significant Rules changes for you to digest in this survey, before giving you the chance to say whether you agree or disagree with each of them. It'll be great to know your thoughts.
Have your say here.

"We had to price match you last week on Vokey wedges"
That's great to hear that your pro shop is lower on price than the highstreet store…..
On the down side, it was a PGC member asking AMG to match my price and bought them from the highstreet!
Oh well, the mind boggles!
We Have Had a Change Around In Store!
We have swapped the layout of the shop around this week, in doing so we are trying to create defined product areas within the pro shop to help make retailing easier.
We still have deliveries due from a number of suppliers before we are fully stocked but the shop is looking full already.
We now have an Under Armour focus area which looks fantastic and a new Ladies area in store.
We took delivery of two brand new footwear products this week and these are being received really well.
- New Mizuno NEXLITE shoes
A great looking waterproof shoe offering extreme comfort, support and very light.
Price £89.99 or £79.99 if you trade in your old shoes!
- Under Armour Jordan Spieth shoe
The shoe is built for both comfort and practicality as it has a revolutionary UA Storm Technology that keeps it brilliantly waterproof but doesn't lose the breathability golfers have grown to expect.
The sole has a spike design unique to Under Armour, featuring a patented rotational resistance pattern.
This is specifically designed for the rotation and traction which a shoe needs during the golf swing.
As well as superb grip the shoe has been made with a focus on comfort, it is very light and has a responsive cushioning feel.
New Golf Pride Grip Area in Store
Ahead of the 2017 season we have a grip specific area now installed in the pro shop.
We supply Golf Pride, SuperStroke and Lamkin grips ranging from £5 to £12.99 fitted.
We also carry a wide range of the latest putter grips from Golf Pride and SuperStroke.
If you would like us to check your grips to see if they need replacing or check they are matching thickness for your hand size, pop in and ask a member of the team.
We will give the first 6 set of re-grips one FREE!
I Want Your Old Golf Bag and Will Give You Money For It!
Looking for a new bag ready for the season?
Don't throw yours away, bring it to your pro shop, trade it in against a new one and save £20!
If any of these are true of your bag, then take to the course in 2017 with a new bag.
Next time you're around be sure to pop into the shop and explore our full range in this promotion.
The offer is available on selected Motocaddy, Mizuno and Callaway golf bags.
Trophy Finds its Home Again
First Presented in 1893 the Presidents Cup returned to its original home at Preston Golf Club.
Lost or stolen but home at last for our 125th year after been missing for over 50 years.
All the way from Wigan
Once again all of the team have been busy helping members and range users improve their game.
On Monday we held our "test and tips" putting evening which was enjoyed by those who attended.
Gary and I assisted golfers with their putting strokes, advised on putter length and also matched putters to individual strokes.
We had one young man come all the way from Wigan to gain some FREE help with his putting.
Here is an image of his new set-up to suit a face balanced putter after we had helped him.
Thanks to all who attended and good luck on the greens for 2017.
Gary improves wedge play with better technique
Struggling with bad strike, distance issues and low confidence Gary picked my brains about how to enhance his up and down ratios. The image shows improved weight position after impact and left arm stability.
The results were magnificent!
If you would like any help with these shots, call in and ask a member of the team who will be only too happy to help.
