Santa brought me a fabulous new toy in the way of a GC2 Launch monitor. I spoke about it just before Christmas and being the sharing sort of person I am, I`ve let some of the members 'have a go'.
First person 'on it' so to speak was Paul North who was both amazed and impressed at how the information it offered helped him to understand, not only what type of shafts he needed in his new clubs but why the shafts were relevant with a further explanation from me. The results also showed why Paul had shied away from using his 3 wood off the fairway. Not only does he now have complete trust in his clubs, as from his own admission, "I`ve never been fitted for clubs before" but a catalyst to progressing a change to his method.
Another person to try out the GC2 was Matt Lewis, who is pictured with his new G30 driver. "I had been to an exhibition before Christmas and was recommended a particular shaft. After going on the GC2 monitor and then having the opportunity to demo the club out on the course, it only confirmed the original recommendation wasn`t ideal for me. I`m grateful for David's help putting this club together for me".
Now, if one person can get this excited about my GC2, imagine how much more fun and improvement it could bring to all of your games too? So if you feel like this is your year to launch your game to a new level here`s your chance...

Cadets get psyched up…..
Getting ready for the new season and our Cadet section had a mind factor session during the Christmas period with John Ramsay and myself putting them through their paces. With a four hour session in front of them, half the time was spent in the classroom and half outside with practical work, it won`t be for the want of preparation with the Cadet County Team matches in mind later in the year. The Cadets had great ideas put to them to extend their thinking and seeing that anything is possible on the course. I'm sure the Cadets will benefit immensely and further sessions are planned before the season gets going…
"What a great start to my year"…
That was the thought of Gary Mason who became the beneficiary of our annual New Year draw and will now be heading off to Surrey with 3 friends to play at the wonderful Burhill Golf Club sometime this year. Burhill has staged many big events including EuroPro tournaments and will be host to The Senior Open prequalifying in July. Not a long course by today's standards but wonderful greens in immaculate condition and less than hour from home. Since he found out he won the prize, Gary hasn`t been able to buy a drink at the bar or a lunch from the restaurant for some reason? Keep milking it Gary!!
Many thanks to all who entered, check with us as there are 11 other prizes to be collected.
As most stores do in January, we are have items available at reduced rates to make space for the oncoming new lines in the Spring. Opportunities to grab some excellent bargains from our shoe, clothing and hardware lines are all worthy of a look in. Drivers at over £100 OFF the SRP and soft goods at 25% discount add up to one thing, great savings for you on top branded products. So if you were a winner in the New Year draw it could be a double whammy by spending your prize on some of these goods discounted.
The Tours return to TV
Having watched a little of the golf on TV this week reminds me if what it was like to wear a pair of 28 waist trousers! How skinny did just about everyone look on the US Tour event in Hawaii last week? Bubba Watson looked fat and that's saying something! Chesson Hadley who would never be confused with Spandau singer Tony Hadley had a physique of a gorky 17 year old! Winner of the event Patrick Reed obviously broke that mould. Scoring was super low with plenty of players breaking 66 during the week.
In South Africa Andy Sullivan sneaked past local favourite Charl Schwartzel for his first win in the South African Open. A brilliant start to his 2015 season, catching up 7 shots on the home town favourite and making birdie at the first extra hole!
Peterborough United Chairman tweeted 11 times about how poor his players were against lowly Colchester last weekend. It's about time footballers were given some humility and realisation that poor football with little or no effort deserves the comments he went public with. Well done to him, wonder if World Player of the Year, Cristiano Ronaldo, would make a difference down there?
Also the support has been great for the French satirical magazine, Charlie Hebdo, after the events in Parish last week. The world has to stick together to beat this sort of thing, sadly it won't be the last time but the overwhelming support might just stop someone wanting to join the evil ways of these people.
