Wet is an understatement 

Well this has not been the start of 2016 I was looking for and I sure it wasn't the start you wanted either! The course has taken an absolute tonne of rain over the past week and although the new drains have been working at the lower end of the course, the state of 14,15,16 has been a sight. Here are some images sent to me by the green keepers early this week. Having said that, there is plenty going on with us in the Pro shop, with new stock coming in thick and fast, the studio absolutely rocking with the new technology and the final 3 days of the sale! So there is still an excuse to jump in the car and come on down.

Still Learning and improving - Are You? 

Well Monday was an incredible treat! I was fortunate to be invited by The Leys headmasters and AFG Pupil Martin Priestley to attend a seminar by award winning author Matthew Syed. Matthew wrote the book 'Bounce', which is one of the books that started my journey into a different way of looking at coaching. 

If you have some quiet time this week with the course shut why not download or order Matthew's latest book, Black Box. It is an interesting read on how we look at learning and performance with a lot of work taken from the research of Professor Carol Dweck.

Studio Putting Sessions spaces running out fast 

The studio is flying now and with the new SAM putt lab flying there is still a chance to grab one of the opening January Launch offers to have your putting stroke looked at and your putter custom fitted.

Dean's Equipment Insights - Callaway MD3 Wedges

The new Callaway MD3 wedges come in two finishes, black nickel and chrome They are available in lofts from 46 deg - 62deg in 3 different grinds. Selecting the right grind for you depends on turf conditions that you play on mostly and the angle of attack you have in to the ball


In my opinion these are one of the best wedges that are on the market at the moment. My personal opinion is that are a little lighter than some of the others that are available and this is something that I prefer. Sandwedges that come as part of the set are not that easy to use! Do you struggle in the bunkers or around the green on them delicate shots? 

For me, the set sandwedge is far too big and bulky for use in this country as we do not have deep filled bunkers with lots of sand and we do not have thick Bermuda grass in and around the greens A specialist wedge is far more versatile and easier to use and would be more beneficial to most club players.

I hope you enjoy the newsletter, and have a great weekend.
