The Open Championship sweepstakes results
Following a fine Open Championship last week, I'm pleased to supply you the results from my Open Sweepstakes:
Charles Maisey with Zach Johnson - wins £250 on his Pro Shop account
Paul Merrington with Louis Oosthuizen - wins £150 on his Pro Shop account
Kevin Hurst with Jordan Spieth - wins £100 on his Pro Shop account
* Marc Leishman was outside of the top 50 so did not qualify *
Please note that as a result of this very popular event, I shall now be running a sweepstakes draw for each and every future major golf championship.
Junior Summer Golf Classes
There are still a few places left for next month's Junior Summer Golf Class if anyone is still interested and that week runs from Monday 24th August to Friday 28th August inclusive. Each day begins at 9am and lasts until 10:45am and is a great way for kids to get some good, old-fashioned fresh air and exercise! So, if you'd like your child/grandchild to participate, please stop by the Pro Shop, collect a form and return it with your cheque or click here. But please hurry because spaces are limited!
2015 Open Golf, Limited Edition Callaway Tour Bags
I have recently taken delivery of two beautiful, limited edition Callaway Golf Open Championship tour bags.
They have The Old Course embroidered on them as well as a limited edition plate on the bottom of the bag and come in a lovely blue and white colour and it is expected that these bags will be highly sought after.
Currently, these bags are retailing at £319.99 but are bound to be selling for much higher on eBay in the next few weeks so now may be an ideal opportunity to purchase one.
Clicgear push trolleys
I recently ordered some Clicgear push trolleys with the hope of selling a few, but such has been the sell-through that the few I ordered have now been sold but have now subsequently been replaced with two new trolleys, one in black with orange wheels and the other black with lime wheels. As many of you will know, these trolleys are first-class in quality and fold down really small too. So if you're in the market for a terrific push trolley, please let me know or come and take a look ASAP.
Superb Callaway Golf X Series N415 woods, hybrid and irons set
If you're looking for a top-of-the-range set of golf clubs at a very reasonable price, look no further than the superb, new, Callaway X Series N415 clubs. These cavity back clubs are designed to be easy to use, easy to hit and at just £569.99 , you'll receive a driver, 3-wood, #4 hybrid as well as irons from 5 - SW. So if you've another home somewhere and would like to leave another set there for when you visit or you'd just like to try a different set, well, you know where to come.
Cracking new Cleveland wedges
If you're looking for a superb new wedge, look no more because I have a fantastic new wedge from Cleveland Golf. Cleveland has long been known for the quality of its wedges and the new Rotex 2.0 wedge is a beauty. Finished in black, these wedges are available in 52°, 56° or 60° and what's more, I now have them etched with our beautiful club logo on the back of each one. I also have a 56° demo wedge for you to try which I've had in my bag for some time and I personally think this is the best wedge around. So look no more and come try out the newest Rotex 2.0 wedge - you'll love it!
What can we learn from Zach Johnson? Obviously, length is not one of Zach's greatest assets but what he loses in length, he more than makes up with in his red-hot short game. So the next time you head up to the range to smash some drivers, hybrids and long irons, ask yourself if it might be better to work on your pitching, chipping and putting instead. Clearly, it's done Zach Johnson no harm. Good luck!
Buying goods from the internet always seems like such a good idea, but let's take a look at what you gain and what you lose. You may save a pound or two - that's it - however, what you lose can be huge! For example, let's take a look at a case of an electric trolley breaking down.
Bought online - bought from me
Time wasted looking for the cheapest price online / one standard, competitive price!
Getting the wrong size, wrong colour or wrong item! / You select the product and get to touch and feel it - I'll deal with the rest!
The delivery driver doesn't turn up when you've been waiting all day / I'm a business owner always accepting deliveries!
Even when he does, the delivery window is between 8am and 6pm so you're sitting in all day / I'm open from 7:45am until 6pm - we're always here!
When the wheel falls off or it stops working, having to pack it all up and having no box / I'll either repair it in a few days or pack it up and send it back properly packaged
Contacting the company and going through a whole world of pain / I'll even loan you a trolley to use FOC whilst yours is being repaired!
Not knowing how the returns' system works / I do this all day, every day, so know the system inside out!
Not knowing what you can get back from the company and thus not having any "clout" / I place £K of orders with each company so they want to look after me!
You fret and worry about what the company will say or do / I know the best way to deal with each company and am always looking out for your best interests!
Most websites are legitimate, but can you really be sure..? / Guaranteed, bona fide, premium products every time!
Bought from American Golf and now you've got to take it back and deal with the traffic and parking / Drop it off to me when you're next playing - job done!
Now don't you wish you'd come bought it from your P.G.A. professional?!
