Short Game Section - Knock shots off your score - Just ask Vince Sarsfield!
FREE GAPPING SESSION AND SHORTGAME LESSON when you buy a wedge system from your pro.
We currently stock Titleist Vokey, Cleveland 588 RTX AND Cobra Tour Trusty Wedges, which range from £74.99 to £97.99 . We have various loft and lie combinations in store to suit your technique and preferences!
We also have demo wedges in each brand that are available for trial before making your purchase!
This week I have given away 4 FREE gapping sessions. Using Flightscope I ask the golfer to hit 6 shots with their 9 iron and wedges. From the data I am able to see distance gaps between how far each of these clubs travel.
With modern day PW loft being circa 45* and SW loft being circa 56* we have a gap of 11*. This is a problem as 4* = 12/15yds so potentially a 40yd distance gap between the PW and SW. This example is the most common problem I am asked to deal with and typically requires the addition of a gap wedge 49* or 50* adding to the bag.
Are you GAPPED correctly? If not, why don't you book in for your FREE GAPPING SESSION by clicking here.

Product of the Week
Four weeks ago I took delivery of my first drop of PING G30 drivers. As always I am sceptical when a rep walks into store telling me that their new product is the longest, lowest spinning, straightest and most forgiving driver. This is the story I have heard for years!!
So, four weeks in and three top up orders placed tells a story. Using Flightscope to carry out fittings the findings have been very positive. This new PING G30 driver really does perform on all levels especially distance, spin and forgiveness.
So, for all you PING lovers out there I would most certainly recommend giving this driver a test. For anyone who struggles with a left to right ball flight my testings have found the SFC model really can assist straightening up that ball flight.

Cash for clubs
We are often asked if we accept trade-in 's. The answer is YES! We actually want your old clubs!
We also have a facility to convert those old clubs that are sat in your locker or garage into money. Providing these clubs are a reputable brand and not too old we can move them on for you and convert them into funds that will be applied to your customer account in the pro shop for you to spend at you convenience.
If this is of interest to you, pop in and see us during the week and we will give you a valuation.
That's all for now so we look forward to seeing you around the club at the weekend and happy golfing!!
