Are golfers fore-going safety?
It's time for a rant. From our very first adventures onto a golf course we're encouraged, not demanded, to scream 'fore' if our ball is going off line. We've all had to do it, both for ourselves and playing partners, when we see a miss-hit flying towards another golfer on the course who we're frantically hoping would just move out of the way.
So why is it that when the tour pros skew one left or right, where hundreds of spectators are lined up along the edge of the rough, do they not see the importance of shouting 'fore'? Take Pat Perez for example. On Sunday he saw a stray tee shot clatter into the head of a spectator on the 12th, before firing another loose drive into the leg of another spectator on the 15th. And guess what - no shout of 'fore' on either occasion.
Perez isn't in the minority either, it happens far too often. Shane Lowry's tweet (seen above) hits the nail on the head. Let's hope more players follow his mindset.

This week in the pro shop we have taken delivery of the brand new range of footwear from FootJoy, the Pro/SL. If you’ve put off trying spikeless shoes in the past, the Pro/SL could be your game changer, offering on and off-course versatility, modern styling and the stability your game needs.

We are now down to our last few pieces remaining on our Sale Rail. So why not pop in and see us over the weekend and grab yourself a bargain before it's too late?
Aiming for a younger demographic
The European Tour have introduced some innovative ideas for the season ahead. The World Super 6 combined 54 holes of stroke play with a final-day knockout, whilst GolfSixes, which takes place later in the year, sees two-man teams battle it out over six holes in a group stage, before progressing to a final-day knockout.
