Summer Sale - great savings to be had in-storeProQuip Pro-Flex waterproofs

Morning golfers,

I hope you're enjoying the sunshine and a summer full of golf. Our summer sale is in full swing with some great deals for you all to grab and we also have a number of events running this month for you to attend and hopefully finish strong towards the back end of the season.

This week I also wanted to tell you about the coach getting coached! You know sometimes as coaches we forget what it is like to be a beginner or a student taking a lesson and that is why I traveled an hour to go and spend a morning with Short Game coach James Ridyard. Why? Well two reasons:

  1. To improve my woeful short game, not playing has its pitfalls, so spending some "me" time on my game makes a change.
  2. To get some great information and insight into wedge play and short game from a coach that has worked globally with national squads and presented to the PGA of America.

Needless to say, the information will probably have more of an impact in my lessons rather than my own game quicker, but I am going to work hard to improve that area.

Pros news 

More Student Success...

The AFG students just keeping improving this summer and I am loving the fact that a lot of my students have the passion and work ethic to improve their golf. This week has seen the following successes:

  • Ed Dimambro - Ed has finally reached his long term goal of getting to scratch after a great round at Newmarket in a Medal.
  • David English - David has moved his handicap down to 18.6 reducing it by three shots this year, only 0.6 to go to hit his target.
  • Austin Wang - Winning the his first ever Stableford Junior Open at Ely by an amazing 17 points.

After Jim Furyk's great score of 58 at the weekend, it just goes to show that there is no perfect looking swing only one that is functional. If you struggle with back pain, shoulder pain or knee pain through playing golf or are struggling to get the distance you would like then it is time to learn more.

Take time out on Wednesday, 24 August (6.30pm - 8.30pm) to attend our Body Swing Connection Workshop in conjunction with TPI and KVest to learn how the body works and how physical limitations can affect your golf swing and what to expect.

There's always going to be an element of luck with any hole-in-one, but this is something else! Sadly for Thomas Bjørn, it won't go down as a competitive ace.. Still… worth a watch.

Luckiest ever hole-in-one?






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