Titlesist 915 Demo Day
On Tuesday we hosted one of the regions first Titlesit 915 demo days. The test results on this product were as expected, FANTASTIC! An accumaletive increase of 108 yds was achieved by 6 golfers. If you would like to try this Driver using Flightscope Launch Monitor, please book your FREE Fitting now.
Titleist 915 Metals - NOW IN STOCK Here are a few words from the guys at Titieist
- The one thing that kept Titleist's 913 drivers from winning more awards in our 2014 Gear Trials Club Test was their tendency to spin too much, but that shouldn't be the case with the company's 915 line.
The new models include what Titleist calls an "Active Recoil Channel" - an extremely wide, deep slot on the front of the club soles that extends across the entirety of the clubface - that not only lowers spin, but raises launch angle and ball speed on off-center hits as well.
Here's how it works. The Active Recoil Channel allows for more deflection of the clubface, which then creates more "recoil" into the ball, particularly on shots hit low on the face. According to Dan Stone, vice president of research and development for Titleist golf clubs, the Active Recoil Channel also causes the golf ball to compress in a different manner, which creates less rotational energy. That causes shots to leave the clubface with less spin.
"We began incorporating Active Recoil Channel in the prototype phase about four years ago, but this kind of technology requires a lot of fine-tuning if you're going to do something that's different, as opposed to making a cosmetic or marketing change," Stone said. "By adding significant technology for speed and spin without sacrificing MOI, we think we've done something very special that nobody's done to this point."
That's a bold claim.

Mizuno DNA fitting Centre
2015 will see your professional shop named as one of Mizuno's elite DNA Fitting Centres. This takes our fitting options at PGC to 7 brands, something no other pro shop in this area offers.
In golf, the name Mizuno is synonymous with great irons. Chances are we all know a player - and probably a good one - that played with 'Mizzys' growing up and hasn't switched iron brands since. Great feel combined with classic good looks is hard to beat.
Over the years, Mizuno expanded their lineup to include models for golfers of all skill levels while still staying true to its roots of function, clean looks and mostly 'grain flow' forgings. Through the years, Mizuno irons have been consistent Gold and Silver winners on Golf Digest's annual Hot List.
For more information on Mizuno product and DNA please speak to a member of staff.

Crested PGC Garments

Members can now get any item of clothing in store embroidered for just £5, this takes roughly 7 working days to send off and receive with the PGC Crest embroidered to your preferred position on the clothing.
Once again we are doing a Christmas draw which is £5 per square on the board! There is potentially £1000 in prizes to be won for the lucky winners! There will be a first, second and third prize so head to the shop now as it is filling up quickly!
Junior Development Programme
Over the last couple of months the Academy has been working hard to improve the juniors development and we are now pleased to say that a 4 Hole Junior Winter League will start and encourage juniors to play more golf.
A relationship has been made with the Golf Foundation to offer a structured coaching scheme in the form of the re designed junior passport programme which covers all the areas we would wish from a upcoming junior golfer. Each junior will receive a Passport, which is a record on each individual's progress.
Along with the relationship with the golf foundation, a £500 pot of funding has been accessed and will go into the JDP to allow us to offer taster sessions into the local community.
Do you know a Junior interested in learning a new skill?
The Junior Golf Passport programme, which runs midweek after school hours and Saturday mornings from 9am until 12pm is open to all under 14's who are looking to start golf.
The cost of the sessions is £28 per month One to one sessions are also available to more advance golfers to help with their development.

Rocket Launcher Mats!
As you know, winter rules are now in place and you can get your Rocket Launcher from the professional's shop!
The ROCKET LAUNCHER® has passed the test & is welcomed as a long awaited replacement for the old, tired, grass mats. When struck it feels like you've played off the natural turf so it maximises enjoyment and minimises wear 'n' tear on you & your clubs. Features;
- The ROCKET LAUNCHER® is so slender the ball rests a scant millimetre or so above grass height so no need to shorten your grip as with mats
- No restraint required - strike at full strength without fear of typical golf mat backlash
- It is self-anchoring so no more additional bending over to insert anchoring tees. Just tap it down with your club head, there, it's anchored
