What a weekend at the Masters! Great to see a young golfer in Jordan Spieth
hold off the veterans and major winners trying to get close to him on that famous back nine on a Sunday evening at Augusta National. I was privileged to hear Jim James, who is the General Manager at Augusta, host a seminar at the back end of last year and even though I've always watched the Masters it was great to see things that he mentioned and get the background on the item. For example, the Masters is the only non-commercial sports event left in the world
! Did you see any Coca Cola/Pepsi bottles or cups on display? No! Any drink bought on site is poured into a green Masters cup. Just one little insight for you there!!

Why not book an MOT for only £10 and during the 60 minutes we will cover having look at your swing, short game and your club condition that way you will start the season off on the right foot. Get in touch here.
The Performance Simulator continues to gain interest. The services we are offering now are something Panshanger has never done, or been able to do, before. The golf lessons are of a level not seen at PGC. The practice sessions are much more beneficial and gives purpose to your practice rather than hitting balls aimlessly a range. Club fitting is so important. Gap sessions have been very busy with people of all abilities wanting to nail down their club distances. And after all that, if you want to play golf then 15 world famous golf courses await.
This week we are on the 12th hole - 437/374 yards (Par 4)
Although not officially the hardest on the course, it is generally regarded as the toughest! Tricky tee shot as the fairway slopes right towards out-of-bounds but the hole doglegs to the left. Not only that, you need to hit to the corner or you'll have an approach over some trees to reach the green. Make par on this hole and you should be a happy golfer!
Some great products in the shop at the moment and some great deals also.
We have one set of limited edition 'Masters' Golf Pride grips in stock - pictured here!
Demo clubs are in the shop for you to take out on to the course or try in our brand new Performance Simulator.
And until this weekend you can order four dozen Pro V1s for the price of three and have FREE personalisation. Order yours here.
Lastly, have you wondered what the putter grip was that Jordan Spieth, Phil Mickelson, Sergio Garcia, Billy Horschel, Jason Dufner....... the list goes on.....is? Well it's the SuperStroke and they are available at Panshanger and we fit them while you wait. If it's good enough for the Masters Champion...
