Mike's M2 is just ace...
It's a little while since we had some hole-in-one news and I'm delighted to congratulate Mike Crawshaw on holing his tee shot on the 7th this week. Mike has never looked back since buying his custom fit TaylorMade M2 irons recently.
Upon taking delivery Mike won the Rundle Cup with a superb nett 64, has reduced his handicap to single figures and now had the fantastic achievement of a hole-in-one.
Poults' Competition winner one of our own...
Alastair Gill recently entered a competition on Ian Poulter's website and won the most fantastic prize - the 54 degree Vokey wedge that Ian used during the Ryder Cup at Medinah back in 2012.
It was great to see the wedge and look at the custom specifications of the club and in particular the 11 degree "bounce" that he used.
This is a hugely important aspect of wedge fitting and makes a tremendous difference as the bounce influences how the club reacts with contacting the round.

It has been interesting watching events last week as the Nike ambassadors are now trying clubs after Nike's announcement that they are pulling out of the equipment market, and guess which clubs they are trying…
So unfortunately for Mike I don't think a sponsorship from TaylorMade will be coming just yet.
If you are looking at changing up your driver, or seeing if there is something on the market that could help you gain distance, accuracy or consistency, come and have a chat with us in the pro shop, or click here to get in touch.
I am sure there will be plenty of other golfers achieving a "hole-in-one" this week as the verti-draining work started on Monday. This work as detailed in the Greenkeepers blog last week is absolutely essential and has helped enormously since its introduction.
