Pros news


It may be Wednesday morning but that only means that another European Tour Event is starting in Doha! Did anyone watch Last week's event in Abu Dhabi? What a great spectacle for golf, to watch Rory, Jordan, and Rickie playing together the first three days and some great golf by Poulter and Stenson, the 2016 golfing season looks like it has got off to a bang! 

As the weather is desperately trying to improve and we are gradually working our way towards the spring and some brighter golfing weather it might be the perfect time to dust down those clubs, and think about what you are going to do differently this season to enjoy your golf more.

Players ready after a great off season 

This week I just want to take a look at one of my young players who has down some incredible work this winter and I am so excited for what is coming in 2016. You see the key to working with golfers isn't always changing their technical skill set, it is about supporting them to understand their restrictions and their limitations to produce the most repeatable movement, contact and control of the golf ball. 

Here is young Ella Mason, I have been coaching Ella for around 2 years and not only do we work tirelessly on her golf game but it is also amazing to be around such an enthusiastic and pleasant girl. 

The one thing about Ella that is interesting is she is comfortable enough in session now to question, explore, challenge me as a coach and that is great as the more she does this the more her knowledge grows. 

Check out this little video of how Ella has worked on her swing over the off season.

Sam Putt Lab proving a Hit - The only place in Cambridgeshire to analyse using Science and Motion 

I have been so pleased with the response from so many players over the past 2 weeks regarding the Science and Motion Putt Lab we now have in our studio. The changes and information we are now able to gather is completely unrivalled in Cambridgeshire, which potentially makes us the number one venue for Putting coaching and fitting. 

The question I have for you is this? How many putts should you aim for if you hit 9 Greens in regulation? For me it is 27! 9 one putts and 9 2 putts all be well. So the next time you think it is ok to 2 putt every green think again, the number of putts you have, you ability to avoid 3 putts and your ability to hole out have a huge influence on your score.  

And Guess what? We can measure, video and coach your putting stroke to improvement! To book a Sam Putt Lab session please contact us here.

A Fitting Service that is unrivalled - From Tee to Green Every club fitted under one roof! 

I am so excited to announce the launch of our February and March Campaign. We will be promoting and supporting each and every player look at their entire golf bag and to see how many are Custom fitted and bespoke to them? If there is more than one then why? Have you been custom fitted for all your clubs? Putter, Wedges, Irons, Fairway woods, Hybrids, Driver? Am I missing something? 

A good friend of mine said this phrase and I quite like it " You wouldn't buy a pair of shoes the wrong size, so why would you spend a lot more money on equipment that doesn't suit" And if you have that common response - "My swing isn't consistent enough to warrant new clubs or custom fitting" - Then you are wrong. In the next few weeks, our new recruit Ollie will be explaining how different shafts, head designs, weights, grips, and so on can really effect the contact, direction and distance on your club.

Remember this simple phrase: From Tee to Green, Every Club should be fitted to me, There is only one place that can do it locally, And that is at GGC - Call now to discuss your needs or email here
