Club news 

Once again an intrepid group of golfers departed from their various abodes and travelled the distance to Minchinhampton Old Course in order to defend the Kilkenny Cup

This cup has been fought for every year twice a year since 1995, and your Captain, with some trepidation, realised that winning was quite important as it would be the 10th consecutive time we had done so! 

A full team attended in our new 2015 jolly smart uniforms looking keen and sportsmanlike (well, mostly anyway) we then paced with determination towards the tee. The first job was to chase the cows off the tee box - and then we were off. 

It was a close game all round, with Minchinhampton determined to come through, luckily for me it ended 3.5 to Naunton and 2.5 to Minch. It was a great afternoon of golf in nearly perfect conditions.

The usual hazards of the Old Course kept us busy, with cow manure on the greens (treated as casual water in the local rules) and much more of it on the ground elsewhere (treated a GUR in the local rules). It is a lovely and unique course and I think we will all be looking forward to the return match next year. Les Hughes once again appears in the biggest team win of the day, with his partner Nick Andrews recording a 3&2 victory. 

A great big well done to all the team!

Tour news 

Such a perfect day...

The inevitable has finally happened! Nearly man, Jason Day, has finally become a Major champion with his three-shot victory at Whistling Straits - and in what fine style he did it, too. Day finished with a 67 to record a 20-under-par total at the USPGA, in the process breaking the record for the lowest total score at one of golf's big four. 

One of Day's biggest attributes week-in, week-out is his driving ability. Not only is he deceivingly long off the tee, but he finds the fairway with comparative ease. Take last week for example; Day drove the ball an average of 307 yards and found the fairway 73% of the time. Just think how much easier this game would be if we could have that sort of distance-accuracy ratio. 

We can help you achieve gains in the driving department, whether this be through coaching or fitting. Think about the difference a simple change could make to your game: averaging an extra 15 yards off the tee means that you could have 15 yards less left in to each green; the equivalent to one or two clubs. If you want to make this game easier for yourself then come and see us in store, or get in touch here.

Enjoy the rest of my newsletter and have a great weekend.

Golf balls

It's really positive that we're getting more of you to think harder about the ball you play; not just that, understanding the differences between models. A closer look at Srixon's Z-STAR shows it performs best with driver swing speeds betweeen 90 and 105mph. Why? Watch our video...
