Trade Show Time
This week I will be up at Harrogate the Golf Trade show looking at a number of the hottest new products for 2015.
From clothing to clubs, from shoes to coaching tools, it is a great venue where a number of coaches and professionals can view the latest technology.
On top of this Thursday will see me spend the afternoon at the Teaching and Coaching Conference with Ryan, listening to some top coaches including the top short game and putting coach Dave Pelz. Pelz has worked with a number of top players including Phil Mickelson. To check out some of his books visit his website by clicking here
If there is anything you would like to me look out for or questions you might have about what's coming ask myself or Ryan and we will try and find out for you.
On a personal note there is only 4 weeks now until I fly to the big apple to complete the NY marathon on the 2nd November, training is going well, just the small matter of the Peterborough ½ marathon this Sunday first. You can still sponsor and support The British Heart Foundation just contact us for more details

Student of the Week
As most of you know my passion is developing young golfers into accomplished young people. Not just developing their golf game but also developing them as people. This week's student really shows a commitment to improving.
Having worked with Lindie Tapping for a little over a year now I can honestly say not only is her golf swing improving but her attitude and confidence is ever increasing. When I started working with Lindie she was 21. She is now playing off 8 and I can only see good things coming.
Here are some of the changes you can make with some discipline. Here lindie is working on improving her lower body stability and upper body movement in her backswing. I have a feeling this will be a great winter.
If your son or daughter is really looking to improve and get better then sticking with a long term structured plan with goals and objectives and a regular coaching program can only help. Any of my students are always happy to talk new players considering joining me what their experiences have been.
If you are interested in developing your game and want to be a top amateur or turn professional and seriously work on your golf, why not contact me with to arrange a free discussion and coach interview. Call 01223276169 or click here

Maximise your scoring potential
To maximize their scoring potential, Golf Professionals know the exact yardages they hit the ball with every club in the bag, do you? This makes it easier for them to execute their game plans, assist their course management and allows them to be confident over each and every shot.
A Foresight Sports GC2 Yardage/Club Gapping session will give you this knowledge.
Using the special software in the launch monitor system, you can hit a number of shots with every club in your bag and GC2 will give you an accurate report on the average distance you hit each club and the gap between them. This data can then be used to plan your course strategies more effectively and also identify possible issues with the lofts on your clubs or your technique.
During the launch monitor club gapping session, we can also conduct a loft and lie check to ensure that your clubs have the correct set-up and gappings. This is critical to your accuracy in both direction and distance control. With most clubs easily adjusted to suit your set-up and swing, this is one area of club customisation you should never overlook.
Tim Button PGA Teaching Professional, is offering a 45 minute GC2 Yardage/Club Gapping session at a cost of £15. Before the end of October
Please book your session via any member of the Pro Shop team.
