As most of you know, myself and Aaron have been away all week at St Mellions so just a brief update from me this week along with a few images of our week so far. More to follow next week!
We got off to a flyer on day one and were -3 through 5 and could have been better. We picked up two more birdies but gave two back and made some good scrappy pars to finish with.
The course is in fantastic condition, the greens are 11 on the stimp meter making it the kind of course you can't switch off at any point.
I thought the picture above may interest Terry Wilby. Not a Cotswold drystone wall but a Cornish one. I'm sure you can tell us the subtle differences Terry.
The picture above was designed by Jack to resemble the 12th at Augusta. I'm not sure that it plays 212 yards in the masters!
The picture on the right is the 5th tee shot at St mellion. It's a bit tight to say the least!
Choose a club that makes all the right noises
Apparently, there are cracker companies who research the snap their crackers make when broken in half. Car makers research the most luxurious door-closing 'thunk'.
As for golf equipment, sound is even more important. Club engineers believe some 90% of our perception of feel is down to impact sound. Consequently, the biggest companies now use sophisticated computer programs to 'design' the acoustics of the clubheads you'll find in our shop, in a similar way to how they engineer performance.
Don't be too quick to dismiss the sound a club makes. It's hard to gain confidence with a muffled driver, or a clicky putter. A pleasing sound is of course a subjective thing, so the best way to find that good tone is to test a variety. Whether you need a booming driver or a buttery wedge, we have a great range of options - one of which will be sure to play the right tune for you. Click here to tell us what you are looking for.
