For the UK & European fans, we have a very special feature this week from Open Golf Accomodation,

We also have news from the Tour ahead of the Johnnie Walker next week as the players take a well-earned break after what has been a furious August, so far.

For our stateside readership, we have a very special offer on ProAdvanced Pop-up Ball-return ReadyNet golf practise nets, exclusively permitted by Renan Lore himself.

The UK Golf network is growing

Okay, we’ve been working for a couple of weeks now, in between our other projects, to try to lay some foundations down for the UK Golf network.  It’s been a bit messy, at times, and as this is a change in tack from our usual modus operandi (we’re writers at heart, not social media gurus) we’re sort of learning as we go.

First of all, why did we feel there was a need for a UK Golf network?

In a previous life, I wrote for a golf site that was more of a hobby for the webmaster than a primary source of income. It relied on selling golf lessons and an amazon a-store to generate income.

A cut above at 2012 US PGA Championship

See on Scoop.itUK Golf

I have to admit, I expected to be beginning today’s short article expressing my woes that Luke Donald, current OWGR number one, was on a flight home after his pre-cut score of +6 ruled him out of competing for the second half of this year’s US PGA Championship at Kiawah Island.

At one stage last night, it was T65 up to +4 and that was it. Justin Rose had scraped through on that score, Lee Westwood was a half way around bang on that score and Luke was out of contention posting 150 for the first two days.

How shocked was I to find this morning, then, that the bar had dropped to +6 so that Luke had got through by the skin on his Srixon but a second round 77 by Westwood on top of a first round 75 saw him finish this Major +8 and two shots off the mark.

One of the hardest tricks to learn in golf is getting out of the sandtrap (or bunker, to you and I).

With Steve holding back on webgolfcoach, the 300 golf followers on G+ have got to have a bit of something to keep their fores! and holes in one whetted. innit!?
