Callaway drivers reduced dramatically!
I have a small selection of Callaway drivers that I need to clear. I have either the Optiforce driver or the X2 Hot driver and they were £329.99 and £249.99 respectively but they have now been reduced to just £129.99 each! Bonkers!!
Snake Eyes 695 hybrids
If you're looking for a not-very-expensive hybrid, look no further because I have just taken delivery of some super Snake Eyes 695 hybrids, which at just £69.99, will be a very fine addition to your bag. Available in both number 4 (21°) and number 5 (24°), they only come in men's right-hand, regular graphite-shafted versions. But hurry, because at this price, they're bound to move quickly!
Titleist company logoed golf balls
Do you have your own company or work for a company that would like some company logoed golf balls? If the answer is yes, I'd be happy to supply you with Titleist Pro V1 golf balls for just £39.99 per dozen. This price includes VAT as well as your company logo in full colour on one pole (on one side of the golf ball) but there is a minimum order of 12 dozen and there may be a logo setup charge incurred if you don't already have a logo set up with Titleist. For more information, please pop into the Pro Shop as and whe
New Masters Aquapel iCart bags
A recent new addition to the Pro Shop's excellent range of golf bags has been the Aquapel iCart golf trolley bag. Available in black with accent colours in either yellow, green or orange, these bags are extremely well priced at just £129.99 and will help keep your golf equipment and personal belongings nice and dry during wet weather.
Ladies' autumn/winter clothing
If you haven't already seen my recent autumn/winter arrivals ladies, I'd urge you to hurry on in and see what's just landed. I've some beautiful clothing from both Green Lamb as well as PING Collection and all the clothing is designed to help keep you warm and dry as we enter the colder months.
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.
Men's Oscar Jacobson lined sweaters are back!
Without doubt, the best-selling men's garment in the Pro Shop is the Oscar Jacobson lined sweater. These fabulous sweaters come club logoed on the left chest and will definitely help keep you warm and dry this autumn and winter. Available in black, navy, charcoal grey and a Prussian blue, these garments sell out really quickly so if you're keen on getting one, I'd act sooner rather than later! P.S. If you want to know just how good they are, just ask any member who's got one!!
Powerbug electric trolleys
And finally, I'm delighted to tell you that I have just agreed to take delivery of some of the Powerbug range of trolleys. This company is based in Windsor and they are growing at a fair old rate, predominantly because their trolleys appear to be extremely reliable and now the trolley and their own lithium battery, which is incredibly small weighing in at just over one kilogram, both come with an unlimited three year warranty! And with just two models to choose from, you won't get baffled with all kinds of "this and that" going on. Please take a look in the Pro Shop from Friday onwards when I hope to have one on display.
Well, Jordan Spieth has had an unbelievably good year and ended on Sunday with a bonus of a cool $10 million for his pension fund and he has been without doubt, the best putter by far this year and he putts with a "forward press". So, if you've ever wondered why some players like to putt with a forward press, it's because it does two things. Firstly, the press acts as a trigger to start the action.
Most people have a trigger and a forward press is a really easy one to use because it creates movement. And secondly, by pressing the hands forward and in effect, in front of the putter face, it is reckoned that it is much more difficult for the putter face to close at impact, so it helps reduce the risk of pulling your putts.
Try it - you just might like it! Good luck!
