Just tried my newly assembled irons by @PeterRanford from Boom Golf Ltd. They've been waiting at home for me for a while. But because I've been away, I've only just been able to pull them out and put them in the bag. These are so well done and finished with perfection. Get at Pete to fit you with a set of clubs with the right specs. You wouldn't run a marathon with shoes that don't fit! #BoomGolf #JKsWorldofGolf #Golf #SupportingOurLocalTalent #WorldLongDriveChampion
Had the absolute pleasure meeting Limor Katz and the #Upstep team at the #PGAShow January 29th, 2017! Also got fitted with a pair of custom golf orthotics. These puppies are designed to protect, support and cushion your feet! Get at them for a pair - www.upstep.com
Bumped into my long time World Long Drive friend Mike Dobbyn Golf at the #PerfectRelease booth with owner and inventor Jim Burke. They introduced me to the perfect release tool - really comfortable to use and with only a few swings, felt such a difference swinging the club on its own - better balance and stability. Loved it. When you have a tool that helps you get ahead, you must make use of it! Thank you PGA Show for this week! 29th January 2017.
