Player of the Month - March 2017

Congratulations to European Club Swinger Keith Allingham who has started the season in great form, shooting four consecutive under par nett rounds off his 4 handicap to become the early leader in division one. Keith wins a fabulous Explanar training aid which should go some way to help him maintain that form throughout S14!

Q: What one thing has helped your form over the last month(s)?
A: It all started Paul at the Gold day last year at the Grove; I'm sure you remember the first date when it chucked it down! While waiting for a break in the weather I went down to the Srixon boys and tried some demo clubs - the first time for me with Srixon irons. In talking to the boys and how impressed I was with them, I was advised that the new Z565 irons would be out later in the year. While in the US I managed to get fitted out with some new very impressive Nippon shafts. They arrived in November and it's changed my complete game - a much improved ball flight and a new level of confidence has brought my appetite back for the game. I'm enjoying practicing again!!.
