More members join the PING family
Over the last few weeks we have had a few members come along for fittings to see how the current range of PING irons and woods could help improve their game. Below you can see David Bell and Alan Everitt with their new PING i25 Irons and G25 woods. During both fittings it was great to see how correctly fitted clubs improved the ball flight characteristics meaning the shots flew higher, straighter and further.
I would also like to congratulate Tony Everitt on his hole in one using his new PING i25 7 iron on the 2nd hole. The new i25 really can help you lower your scores, come along to the Pro Shop to find out more or book a fitting with us by clicking here.
Are you protected???
As your Club professional I feel it is my duty to warn you about the dangers of playing golf in the sun and not being correctly protected. As a golfer you are exposed to harmful UVA and UVB rays while out on the course and too much exposure can eventually lead to skin damage. I really can't emphasize enough the importance of protecting yourself against the sun as it may not catch up with you in a few months but a number of years from now it could develop. Below is a short list of things I always do and I'd recommend you do to stay protected:
* Wear Sunscreen - SPF 30 or higher, high risk areas include your nose and ears!
* Wear a hat
* Wear Sunglasses as the sun can also damage your eyes over time
* Apply Sunscreen every 90 minutes approximately
* If you have a trolley with an umbrella holder have your umbrella up and walk under it
There have been lots of PGA and European Tour players affected by the sun and have had surgery to remove various types of Skin damage; these include Adam Scott, Padraig Harrington, Brian Davies, Rory Sabbatini, Gary Wolstenholme, Tom Kite and many others. I'm not trying to scare you but I feel it's my duty to inform you of the dangers we are all exposed too.
I was given a lesson!
Yesterday I gave Marjorie Miller a short game lesson, and it turned up that she gave me the lesson instead. She hit sixty short shots and was so impressed by her perfect rhythm and extension through the ball. Here you can see for yourself.
