Seniors' Scratch Foursomes League Division Two
Great news as our seniors' Scratch Foursomes team has won promotion to Division One - a great effort guys!!
New self-service Grip Bar
Fresh in this week is my fantastic new Grip Bar. This allows you to see the kind of grips that we offer to replace your old, worn grips on your clubs and you’ll be able to see just what a difference a new grip makes in terms of feel and your ability to hold the club properly because I have a selection of different grips, all on shafts, available for you to try. But the most fascinating part of my Grip Bar is that you can measure your hand to see what size grip is best suited to you. For example, did you know that Nick Faldo used to have twelve layers of tape under the grip on his left hand yet only eight layers of tape under his right? So you can see just how personal and vital it is to have the correct grips and grip size. Please pop in and check out my new Grip Bar!
I don’t know about you but the regular “lead-acid” batteries don’t seem to last very long these days, so the answer is simple: a brand new lithium battery. These batteries are so good in so many ways and the benefits over a lead-acid are numerous, such as, they will recharge in about three hours, you will get about five times more life out of a lithium than a lead-acid, they’re more powerful and they’re incredibly light!
And at £199.99 , they will also come with a brand new charger and a fantastic two year unlimited warranty and a five year limited warranty. So for further details, please pop into the Pro Shop.
SkyCaddie SGX for sale
And finally this week, I have a SkyCaddie SGX GPS unit that has been used once and I need to clear this unit from stock. This unit has lovely features such as Intelligreen Technology, Target Lists and Interactive Hole Vue and normally retails for £299.99 but I'm happy to accept £225 just to clear the decks.
New club logoed iPad covers
I now have in stock a really lovely iPad cover. These new items come in a really lovely nubuck colour and will protect your iPad whilst making it look really smart at the same time and they're very reasonably priced at £29.99 . Please come into the Pro Shop and take a look.
New club logoed accessories
And if you haven't already seen my fantastic new club logoed holdalls and shoe bags, please come in to the Pro Shop and take a look. And on top of that, I have some terrific new club logoed "micro-fibre" towels which are made of a waffle texture, hold up to 300% of their weight in moisture and are non-abrasive. And on top of that, they can really keep your clubs and equipment clean!
Is your backswing getting too long? If it is, a quick way to fix this is to play with a "short" left thumb. If your left thumb stretches out too far, your grip will be too loose and you won't have enough strength to keep the club secure whereas a short left thumb will give you more power to keep the club from waggling at the top of your backswing.
