So go ahead and take the plunge – you’ll be delighted you did so!
Club cleaning service
With relatively little golf going on at the moment, now is the time to look at your equipment and how best you can improve it. So why not drop in your clubs to us and allow us to:
Scrub the grips with a stiff brush and plenty of hot, soapy water. This will help clear the grips of any unwanted dirt and grime and will make them feel a whole lot better.
Give the metal shafts a rub down with some very fine wire wool but ONLY IF THEY'RE STEEL SHAFTS! This will help get rid of any pitted areas and make them shine again. If they're graphite shafts, we'll take off any blemishes in another fashion.
And finally, why not clean the clubheads with that same hot, soapy water? Maybe there's some grooves lurking under there somewehere. ;)
All this for just £10 (up to a maximum of 14 clubs).
Professional’s Winter Draw
And finally, I’m delighted to tell you that my Winter Draw board is still going strong in the Pro Shop. As always, there will be some truly superb prizes on offer so if you’d like to enter, please come in early to bag your favourite or lucky numbers!
The key to playing an uphill bunker shot...
The key to playing this shot is to set your body so it's about 90 degrees to the slope that your ball is lying on. This means about 65-75% of your weight will be on your back foot (depending on the severity of the slope), which in turn will mean the ball will tend to fly high out of the hazard and land softly when it hits the green. Therefore, please make sure you concentrate on accelerating the clubhead down and through the sand with enough pace to allow for your ball to fly that much higher.
