Preston Golf Club PGA Golf Professional
|Greetings from Andrew Greenbank|
|Preston Golf Club - PGA Golf Professional|
The 36 hole Scratch Medal was competed for over the weekend in strong winds and rainy conditions. We have a first time winner in Ciaran Large who shot rounds of 72 and 74 gross. And, yes he uses fitted equipment by his professional team.
Also played on Saturday was a club medal and congratulations to John Clare, Martyn Ashcroft and Mick Green who conquered their divisions. And congratulations to John Morris, Michael Hall and Geoff Kempster who won their divisions in the club stableford on Sunday.
I would also like to congratulate Naoimh Mcmahon who won the ladies Vice Presidents prize this week. Naoimh is an ex Irish girls champion with a wonderful golf swing who after a few years out of the game is re-igniting her love of the game.

Feature Product of the Week: Cleveland Altitude Iron -
With this hybrid-iron set, hitting the ball longer and higher has never been easier. 588 Altitude irons are fully interchangeable with 588 Mid Trajectory and Tour Trajectory Irons so you can build your perfect set. This reasonably priced iron has performed excellently on our Flightscope Technology and has been one of our bestselling irons this year. Definitely worth a try!
Andrew's thoughts - I feel this iron is ideal for the golfer who struggles with a low trajectory, strong curvature to the ball flight and the golfer needing increased yards from their irons. This iron really can make a big difference to the performance of your iron shots. On Flightscope this iron often shows increased ball speeds of upto 10mph.
Please click here to book your free fitting on Cleveland Irons or to arrange to try these irons on the course.
Taylormade Jetspeed Driver - Was £249.00 Now £179.99 Save £69.01
JetSpeed is the first-ever driver to incorporate TaylorMade's renowned Speed Pocket technology. Why put the Speed Pocket in a driver, which is already at the COR limit of .822 In this case the Speed Pocket is engineered to promote less spin. JetSpeed's Speed Pocket also offers a huge performance advantage when impact is made low on the face, where most driver mis-hits occur.
With most drivers, low impact generates too much spin, making the ball fly too high and land short. JetSpeed's Speed Pocket is engineered to minimize that added spin dramatically, to give you more distance. You'll get a noticeable boost in power when you catch it thin.
TaylorMade Jetspeed Fairway Woods and Rescue Clubs
FW WOOD: Was £179.00 Now £139.99 Save £39.01/RESCUE: Was £139.00 Now: £119.99 Save £19.01
JetSpeed fairway woods and Rescue™ clubs each incorporate a radically redesigned Speed Pocket that's smaller and accounts for less weight while remaining just as efficient at boosting the speed of the clubface.
Think of it as an afterburner for your ball.
Unlike the Speed Pockets in our previous fairways and Rescues, which were empty, JetSpeed's is filled with polymer to keep debris out and absorb unwanted vibration without slowing down the clubface.
NEW PRODUCT'S ORDERED
Recently we have placed an order with Callaway that will allow us to introduce the new CALLWAY V SERIES DRIVER & FAIRWAY WOODS which will arrive in store shortly after the release date.
The entire new line of woods contains what Callaway calls, "speed optimized technology," which means they're made to swing faster than any Big Bertha clubs to date.
This is accomplished through the use of lightweight components, an improved aerodynamic clubhead design, and lightweight shafts and grips.

|Par 5s; play smarter, and score better|
|Make a turn for the better: Part 1|
An easy thing to say, but in the heat of battle it’s not uncommon to lose focus and make mistakes with yardages. You don’t have a caddie to pace out distances and offer advice. However, GolfBuddy’s WT4 watch can act as that calming influence, giving you accurate yardages at a glance.
