Titleist fitting day
It was great to have Ryan Birnie in Southbroom last week doing a Titleist fitting with the new TS2 and TS3 drivers. Almost every golfer hit the Titleist drivers further than their own drivers. I use this new driver and it is amazing how Titleist technology gets better and better. The ball spins less so the ball flight is much improved and fitted with the right shaft and loft makes for a wonderful club. Added to this, it is important to use a ball that suits your launch angle and Titleist have all the options. Pop into the shop for a chat about this technology. It is easy to see how the Pro’s are hitting the ball so far.
Club Champs 2019
Club Champs is next weekend and should be a super weekend. The course is in great shape, so if the weather is kind, I expect some good scoring. A-Division Medal is up to a 9 course handicap and is off the white tees, while B-Division Medal is also off the white tees, but from 10 to 18 course handicap.
We then have a Stableford Division off handicap and playing off either the White or the Blue Tees. So men not wanting to play medal can still join in for a fun weekend on Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning. I also look forward to a good ladies field and of course there is the Annual Twilight Putting Champs after play on Saturday. Mike Anthony was asked what he needed to shoot to win this year and he suggested shooting Gavin Sole.
