Greetings from Andrew and the team.
Zach Johnson finally triumphed in a three-way play-off to claim the Claret Jug after The Open five stretched to five days at St Andrews.
The 2007 Masters champion finished the tournament on 15 under-par, but had to wait nervously as five different players remained in contention heading into the final hole before Louis Oosthuizen and Marc Leishman forced a play-off.
There were plenty of highs and lows at the Old Course on Monday, not least for Jordan Spieth who came agonisingly close to winning a third consecutive major in his quest for an elusive Grand Slam.
Improve Your Short Game!
I am very pleased to see so many members using the re designed area next to the first hole. It has been appreciated by members and is a fantastic addiction to our facilities. Whilst giving a pitching lesson at the short game area I came across a patch of trench divots!
How is your pitching? Do you take a divot? Is it too deep, just a scrape or do you not takes divot?
You can tell a lot about a golfer just by looking at their divots. Why not call by and ask one of the professionals about your divots! I guarantee it will be worth it! We are here to help you with you game! Click here to book a lesson now!
A way of saving turf at the driving range is to make sure that you place the ball at the back edge of your previous divot, meaning as little grass as possible is used.

Cleveland RTX - The highest spinning wedge in golf and currently offering a buy one get one half price
Cleveland 588 Rotex 2.0 Blade Wedge Review
Cleveland also brings you the Rotex 2.0 face in a blade, but it is not a completely new head shape. It is based on the excellent Cleveland CG15 wedge which stood out for the sole grinds on the heel and toe.
Thankfully these continue in the 588 Rotex 2.0 version and the 1 and 2 dot grinds are some of the best in the market for allowing you the flexibility to raise the heel or toe to play touch shots.
If you are looking for versatility around the greens and performance from sand, then the Cleveland 588 Rotex 2.0 gives you everything you would need and more and it is not hard to see why this is one of the best selling wedges in the market.
The levels of bounce per dot vary in the blade version because of the thinner sole. For instance on the 2 dot 56° wedge, the CB has 16 degree of bounce, whereas the blade version has 12 degree so that may influence your choice of head shape and loft.
Catch it correctly and the feel from the 9620 carbon steel head and the spin from the Rotex 2.0 face is excellent and right up there as one of the best. As you would expect, the head is a little more compact than the CB version, but is still big enough to give you some margin for error.
The lofts start at 46 degree with this version, but unless you are low single figures I would be tempted to have a 46 degree to 50 degree in the CB and then go to the 588 RTX 2.0 blade for the higher lofts.
Like previous Cleveland wedges, the blade version feels towards the lighter end of the scale even though the swing weight is the same or less than the main competitors. The bounce tends to play about average for the stated lofts, so a 1 or a 2 dot sole will be ideal for most players.
So whichever version of the 588 RTX 2.0 wedges you go for, you can rest assured that you will have one of the best performers in the market with a tried and tested design and a face that gives good levels of spin for that all important control on the greens.
