The Worst Shots of The Masters
With The Masters, the traditional curtain raiser to the golf season, just a matter of weeks away we thought we’d give you a video with a difference.
Usually in the build up to Augusta we see the greatest shots ever hit on the famous fairways, but this time, how about the worst?
Even the world’s best can fall apart when faced with the lush green fairways and pink azaleas at Augusta National.
A couple of notable absentees from this list include Rory McIlroy’s drive at the 10th in 2011 and of course Jordan Spieth’s collapse at 12 in last year’s tournament.
Pro Shop News March 2017
After becoming the first trolley range to surpass the half a million mark for sales last year, the Freeway range has been given a stunning makeover for 2017 and is available now at Sarah Walton Golf!
The FW3, FW5 and FW7s have all undergone impressive upgrades for the new season. In particular, the FW3 & FW5 have classy new looks with the introduction of ‘intelligent’ digital screens and have been re-branded FW3i and FW5i accordingly. Whilst the top-of-the range FW7s sports a stunning new frame colour to add to its host of other features.
