Well, it's been 6 tournaments now that I've pitched up in the Tour Van, I'm having a good time and I hope it's proving useful to you guys. I've noticed a big rise in the numbers of players using the facility which is great as it shows the right attitude to life as a tournament professional. It is crucial, if you are looking to earn a living out of playing golf that your equipment both suits you and is in good order. As a tournament golfer you should check your loft and lies every 2-3 weeks to ensure they haven't moved through use, grips need replacing 2-3 times a season and your set should have an "MOT" twice a year. Every shot costs money, so make sure your clubs are the right tools for the job. On the van I offer regripping, reshafting, loft & lies, putter lengths and weighting, custom grinding or just the chance to check out your specifications. I also have a range of irons fitted with the leading steel shafts so you can compare prrformance. When I'm not out with the van my day job is at Golfsmith Europe where I'm the Technical Director. Golfsmith Europe is Europes largest supplier of golf club components, which enables me to offer a fantastic range of grips, shafts etc. I can't afford to carry every grip or every shaft in every flex,weight and tip size, so if you have any particular requirements just let me know and I'm sure I can source them from Golfsmith at very competitive prices. If you are looking to upgrade, change or have any work done just contact me on the van or email me and I'll try to save you some money. A lot of manufacturers often ask me to promote their products, and I will try to offer special deals at each event.
For the next 2 events, at The Players Club and The Bristol Club I have offers on Feel Tech putter grips and Champ Spikes, drop by the van and have a look.
In the weeks that I've been out here, I've been so impressed with the Jamega Tour. The way the tournaments are run, the efficiency and organisation of the staff would not be out of place on The European Tour. The combination of the Jamega Team and the venues make this a tremendous experience for the aspiring European Tour player. Here's to a succesful and enjoyable second half of the season.
