Driving's for show, putting's for Major titles
Putting criticism of Chambers Bay and the USGA to one side, if you managed to stay up past 3am on Monday then you were rewarded with one of the most entertaining US Open in recent times. True, it wasn't always enthralling for the right reasons as players and pundits queued up to have a dig at the state of the greens, but after Dustin Johnson three-putted the last, Masters champion Jordan Spieth was crowned the winner. The Grand Slam is very much on, and what a story that would be.
Despite all the criticism of the greens, it's somewhat ironic that the best putter in the world came out on top. Other players may have had a length advantage but when it came down to it, it was the flatstick that won Spieth his second Major, helped by his unerring ability to find the right spots on the green, time and time again.
So, with this in mind, it's time to get to work on your putting stroke; it's where you'll most likely pick up strokes on the field. Take a look at the putting article below and/or pop in to see us and let's take a look at your stroke, we may even find that a fitting will unlock your putting potential.

Callaway Custom Fitting Day
If Titleist isn't for you then we have Callaway coming to see us on Monday 6th July 12:00 - 16:00. Appointments are going fast so get in touch sooner rather than later to get a spot.
Pro's Roll-Up Group
I don't now if you are in the same boat but I've had a number of people come up to me over the past few months struggling to find people to play with, particularly new members and golfers just getting started in the game.
So I'm organising my very own roll up group.
If you are a new member or you have a handicap of 20+ then come a long to the first roll-up group on Saturday 27th June at 9:30. Here's what you can expect from the Pro's roll-up group:
- Get a chance to meet people just like you
- Friendly competition
Then come along for about 9:00. We will meet in the Pro Shop. If you could drop me an email (Click here) or give us a call to let me know you are coming that would be great.
