What's that? 
Less than 50 days until The Masters

Don't wait until then to be inspired and decide to get some coaching or even dust off the clubs, why not get started now? The golf course is drying up really well and remember we have the indoor GC2 Simulator if you can't quite make yourself get out on the golf course in the colder weather.

So to get you in the mood we have four Demo Days coming up, which are earlier in the season this year compared to when we had them last year. Take a note of these dates and if you are interested in coming along to any of them, please get in touch below or come and speak to us in-store:

  • Mon 29 Feb - Titleist Pre-Launch event for SM6 wedges
  • Thu 10 Mar - Lynx Demo Day
  • Tue 22 Mar - Titleist Demo Day
  • Wed 27 Apr - Callaway Demo Day

Book your space at one of the above events here.

Winter league 

Results for the January Winter League were as follows:


Congratulations to Trevor on an unbelievable score. Considering the best score for the previous Winter League courses was only -2, Trevor had an incredible round. The Winter League continues this month at Hazeltine Golf Club. The 2016 Ryder Cup is staged here later on in the year so a great opportunity to see what golf course they will come up against.

Shop news 

Some great new products have arrived in the last two weeks, some of which are new to Panshanger this year!

Skechers golf shoes
FootJoy DNA 2.0 
Callaway XR metals range 
Odyssey Works and Big T putters

More importantly though, what is a Pro Shop with all this product without somewhere or demos to try them out? Well we have all the products available in demos for you to try either on the course or in the Simulator - the choice is yours.


Once again, I wanted to make people aware (if you weren't already) that we can source a lot of product we don't necessarily stock and we will always endeavour to price match where we can. Your business is very important to us and we appreciate every opportunity to secure it. I would also like to make you aware that as part of Foremost Golf, the UK's largest buying group, we can source products through our central warehousing even if we don't stock the product on the shop floor. So if there is a product that you're after that we don't have in stock, come and speak to us. We are your number one shop!

Importance of a warm-up

How many of you arrive at the course, get your clubs out of the car, sign-in and go straight onto the course? This is followed by 3 or 4 holes of erratic golf which leads to another frustrating and disappointing round.

Sound familiar?

A proper warm-up is essential for peak performance in any sport. If you attend any professional sporting event you always see athletes going through a pre-game warm-up, and pro golfers are no different. By the time tour professionals step to the first tee, they are fully prepared to make their best swings from the opening tee shot.

I have created a very simple demonstration to show how a simple warm-up can and will influence your game. Normally I would start hitting some half shots with my wedges and then work up through my bag hitting half a dozen shots with every other club until reaching the driver.

The idea of my warm-up is get a rhythm and swing ready for the round ahead.

It is not the time to work on technique as this should be done during practice sessions not the warm-up. Anyway, what I have done here is hit shots 10 shots with my 7-iron from a cold start. I have treated this as my warm-up and then hit 10 more shots with my 7-iron after.

The key results show:

  • My clubhead speed is 14mph quicker with my second 10 shots after warming-up
  • My carry distance increases by 5 yards
  • My total distance increases by 4 yards
  • My average shot offline decreases from an average of 5 yards offline to just 1 yard offline
  • My dispersion is 50% tighter to the target line

In the graphics below, the blue colours represent my warm-up shots whereas the red indicates my shots once warm.


So if you want to give yourself the best chance to play well, warm-up properly! A warm-up session on the Simulator is only £3 for a 'bucket' of balls before you play.

Academy news 

Dan Fitzsimmons Golf Academy @ PGC 

It is great to see lots of new products being delivered to site, including my new training aid - DST Golf. I came across it at the Trade Show in Orlando and can honestly say it is one of the best training aids I have seen (Matt has even ordered one after trying it out)! Yes it has a bent shaft but it has so much more to it than that. With over 300 tour pros around the world using one you need to come and see why. If you are intrigued get in touch and book yourself a lesson and let's get your game on track ready for the season.
