Christmas is getting closer
With just over a month to Christmas, now is the time to start thinking about those gifts for golfers in the family. I am a big fan of Christmas which I guess is a little strange for a golfer to say as it generally means waterproofs, woolly hats and mittens, but it is a great time of year.
This week sees us starting to put together some great Christmas ideas both in the store and for lessons, so keep an eye out over the weekend and in the coming weeks. If you're unsure of what to get your golfing loved ones then we can always recommend ideas to fit your price point.
Exciting news for us is that we have also taken delivery this week of the new Titleist 915 driver and fairway wood range, which is great news. You can book fittings on the new driver in the coming weeks. It is also great to get such a good turnout for my Challenge final day this year. I can only apologise to those of you who haven't had a chance to play with Ryan and I in 2014 and I hope we get a chance to play with you in 2015.
New in stock - Christmas - Golf Buddy
You may be pleased to know that we have some more additions to our offering in the Pro Shop coming before Christmas and into Next year. Through the surveys that have been carried out and talking to our customers there are a number of brands that you seem to want.
We have now added Bridgestone for next year, Golf Buddy range finders, (perfect Christmas gift) and Druh Belts (another great Christmas gift). My only concern is where we put it all!
10 Grip and Free Glove offer continues
This great offer is being extended until the end of November, so feel free to take advantage and make sure you get the correct grip size.
10 clubs re-gripped until the end of November, with any grip and receive a FREE FootJoy RainGrip Glove worth £12.99
We have now taken stock of Titleist 915 Drivers and fairways. With Christmas fast approaching, it is important that you continue to play golf and practice in the winter months. With this in mind, why not consider trying out this equipment and putting it in your bag for this year!

With the coaching diary still buzzing it is awesome to see so many committing to continual improving and it is so exciting to hear the change in ethos for so many people, saying they see the benefit of continual structured work rather than the phone call to the pro shop when they need to fix their slice! Great work Team AFG!

This week has 3 students
Chris McMullen - Chris has been working with me for little over 6 weeks now. As you can see below on the left, we are making great strides towards tightening up her backswing position and improving her efficiency so has to use her power to better effect.
Sarah Greenall - Sarah and I have been working on her game for little over a year now. As a County level golfer and committed player it is great to work with someone who is so passionate with her golf. Sarah's swing has changed so much in the past 12 months and although this picture (above right) doesn't really do the overall change justice, it is great testament to the continual work Sarah does. Now playing off 4 you can see the work we did on her left arm position in her backswing to give her more room and to allow her more time to make a great swing. 2015 is going to be a great year for Sarah I am sure.
Carter Zhou - a PhD student at Cambridge University, Carter had his first lesson with me last Saturday.
In just 45 minutes we managed to make this change to allow him to make some great strikes.
Having only played golf for a month Carter shows some great movement skills in his swing.
