Belated happy new year to my followers. Flu in the FFP household delayed me getting back into the studio this year but I am back now and 2018 is going to be big I feel.
What’s on the horizon? Well this is going to be a great year for golf on the East coast of Scotland with Gullane GC hosting the Scottish Open and a co-sanctioned (LET & LPGA Tour) Ladies Scottish Open either side of The Open at Carnoustie. I hope to be able to host some events at the new Fenton Barns studio during the month on July and invite some tour players.
While we are talking about tour players the services that I offer now are as close to a tour fitting as an amatuer can get. We have multiple brands of heads, shafts and grips to fine tune the perfect set for you. Fenton Barns has full workshop facilities for club building and repairs as well as PGA professional tuition on site for combined instruction/fitting sessions.
I will be introducing in February a new service. I can’t go into the full details yet other than the name “Performance Guarantee” later in the month I will release the full details of this package.
Most years I attend the PGA Merchandise show in Orlando. I was unable to attend last year but this year I will be there. I can’t wait to catch up with peers from around the globe and discuss the current trends in club building and custom fitting. I normally try and find a product at the show to bring back to the UK to add to the line up in the studio so watch this space. I intend to video blog any products that I like so please subscribe to my youtube channel for instant updates.
February should see the arrival of 2018 fitting kits from TaylorMade, Callaway, Wilson and Ping. I am going to plan some drop-in mornings for my customers to come and try the latest technology. These will be short tasters of the newest equipment and free of charge. Subscribe to my newsletter to receive all the current offers.
Finally I hope to play some golf in 2018. In 2017 I probably played less than 20 times with only one qualifying round. This is the year I will work harder on my own game and handicap. Join me on this journey as I am sure plenty of you want the same as I do, to enjoy the game more, shoot lower scores and lower that handicap (or win tournaments for the pros out there)
Let’s make 2018 one to remember.
