Greetings from Andrew and the team.
Preston GC ticks all the boxes according to england golf U14 group
This week's England Golf U14 championship Reid Trophy has been a huge success. An international field of competitors arrived over the weekend and took the opportunity to get a look at the course ahead of Monday practice. The club have received tremendous feedback from all concerned. It is a joy to hear how these young men, the parents and officials see what is on offer at Preston GC.
We should all be very proud of our club! The 36 hole cut sees 70 players and ties go into the final round which will conclude this golfing spectacle around 4pm on Thursday.
French teenagers Alexandre Lasalarie and Andrea Milazzo are setting the pace in the English U14 boys' open championship for the Reid Trophy at Preston Golf Club, Lancashire.
Lasalarie, from Reunion Island in the Indian Ocean, scored four-under par 68 at the time of writing, which was the low round of the tournament so far. He was level par for the tournament and lead by one.

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.
