Greetingsfrom Matt Bannister
GeneralManager & PGA Professional - Panshanger GolfComplex

Pros news 

So this week we have been at theGolf Trade Show up north inHarrogate.

Iattended some seminars and saw lots of excitingproducts that are launching immanently or earlynext year.

OnWednesday evening I also attended the GolfIndustry Awards and if you follow us on Facebookand/or Twitter,we were reporting at the time who wonwhat. Highlights of the winners were:

  • Shotof the Year - Rickie Fowler'ssecond shot from 243 yards on the par-5 16thin the final round of the The Players'Championship which he would eventually go onand win (watchhere).
  • Playerof the Year - Jordan Spieth, enoughsaid!

Then were the Supplier Awards - these were votedfor by readers of Golf Monthly and Foremostmembers. It was great to see we currently stockso many of the suppliers that were not onlynominated, but also took home awards. Thehighlights were:

  • Apparelsupplier of 2015 - FootJoy(available in store)
  • Shoemodel of 2015 - FootJoyContour Series (available in store)
  • Wedgeof 2015 - TitleistVokey SM5 (available in store)
  • Putterof 2015  OdysseyWorks (available in store)
  • Ballof 2015 - TitleistPro V1 (available in store)
  • Electrictrolley of 2015 - Motocaddy(available to order in store)
  • Mostinnovative product of 2015 - ForesightSports GC2 (available to use in ourSimulator)

We then listened to Dr Paul Hurrion discuss puttingbiomechanics - some of the statswere simply mind blowing! Putting is arguablythe hardest part of the game and after listeningI may sway towards that side. Highlights were:

  • Froman 8-foot putt, if your putter is just 1degree open at impact you will miss!
  • Thebest putter from 5-8 feet on the 2014 PGA Touronly made 65% of putts from that distance
  • Theball is in contact with the putter face atimpact for only 0.000125 of a second! Which isconsiderably less than with a driver shot!
  • Finally,you are more likely to three-putt once you getto 26 feet and over than two-putt!

Sofirstly, if you don't hole your putt from 8 feetor you do three-putt from 30 feet, don't beatyourself up as putting is hard! If you need somehelp remember you have two experienced golfprofessionals ready to point you in the rightdirection at Panshanger.

From here we went on to a wedge playseminar. The most consistent distanceto pitch from is 50-60 yards as clubhead speedwill match ball speed. If an average golferplays once a week and practices once a week, theamount of spin your wedge can produce will be50% less at the end of the first year comparedto a new wedge! If your wedges areover one-year-old come and try some of our demowedges and see what we mean.

We are here for all of your golfing needs, socome and see us in store or getin touch here.
