Happy New Year!
The golfing season has commenced on The PGA Tour and Tiger Woods gets underway in Torrey Pines next week! Jason Day won last year, so I'm sure it will be a good battle come Sunday!
The European Tour gets underway this week in Abu Dhabi, Shane Lowry is setting the early pace with an outstanding 62, hitting 4 fairways!! A bit of rust was visible from some top players such as Tommy Fleetwood and Dustin Johnson! They are human!
The new rules changes have been an interesting topic to start the season, on an amateur and professional level. Overall I think it needed to be done, condensing and simplifying the rules of golf can only be a good thing. Putting with the flag in, removing loose impediments in bunkers, reduced time looking for a lost ball, dropping from knee height and no more penalty for a double hit! To name a few!
New equipment launches are also hitting the market thick and fast and we will be getting Callaway's new range and Ping's new range all available for full custom fit at The Golf Lab.
We also have an exciting new brand that is exclusive to The Golf Lab. This is PXG, if you love golf equipment, components and high end materials, PXG is your brand!
We have a fitting event for the release of their brand new range next Wednesday and spaces are filling up fast!
