Greetings from Mark Rogers
The York Golf Club - Nominated Foremost Pro of the Year 2012 & 2013

Whoever said football was a "beautiful game" never: 

a) watched England play 
b) played golf and............ 
c) most certainly never played golf at York GC!!!!!!!! 

That's enough football talk . Another week has gone by, and my goodness could members and visitors possibly enjoy their golf at York GC anymore?

I'm sure it must feel like a grass factory out there for Mick and his team, but it is just wonderful out there and their superb work is duly noted and appreciated by members and visitors alike . Once again well done guys.

Captain's Day

Not wishing to eclipse the World Cup but arguably our biggest event of the year takes place on Saturday - Captains Day. Over 200 competitors are booked in for the event and thank goodness England were not playing the night before!!!

In addition to the chance to win the Captains Prize, each competitor has the chance to win 3 x Srixon balls if they hit the 7th green AND score no worse than a 3. This year we are also looking to find "the best putter in the club" with each competitor having automatic entry into the putting competition. No "crazy golf" just 9 holes to complete and enter your scores.

Good luck to all and fingers crossed for some good weather.

Searching for Pro Shop golf balls seems to be gathering momentum and whilst TJ and Steve would like to report one of mine being found ..................tough luck guys not yet!

Unfortunately for TJ it's his turn this week with a big (slightly left) drive on the 3rd being found by Ken Easthope. On a serious note TJ was playing at Sandburn this week in a Yorkshire PGA event and after shooting a 73 to secure making the Top 50 cut he then shot 74 to finish 32nd.

Everyone loves a bargain and our great offer on Ashworth shirts is certainly a beauty! £10 OFF all shirts is proving popular as it means prices start from £19.99.

What we can learn from Payne swinging in the rain

With the US Open played at Pinehurst, thoughts returned to Payne Stewart's epic 1999 victory there. Unlike this year's heat, that years final wet day saw Payne wearing what looked like a gilet; but look closely at pictures of him with the trophy and you'll see the shoulders are ragged. In fact Payne took a pair of scissors to his bulky waterproof jacket sleeves that week.

This episode highlights a big shift in golfing outerwear. Back then, suit makers tried to create freedom to swing through a baggy fit; today, thanks in part to new materials, they create freedom through a snug and stretching fit, as represented by the quality garments in our shop.

Anyone who has tried both knows what Payne knew - that it's much easier to make that full, unrestricted coil without all that extra material flapping around.

It's nice not to have to butcher your rainwear too

FootJoy Contour golf shoes

The most powerful swings use the ground to provide resistance and stability. FootJoy’s Contour shoes reinforce that relationship through excellent traction and stability technologies, including a grippy Duramax outsole, Pulsar cleats and a foot-planting stability bridge.

EASILOCK technology makes things...easy

It's not just its trolleys that Motocaddy continues to take to new levels of performance - the bags range too caters for golfers with different preferences and budgets and features new technology designed to give us an even more pleasurable experience out on the golf course.
