The newly refurbished indoor swing studio was officially opened by none other than DP World Tour winner Dan Bradbury on Tuesday the 28th of February. The studio is now fully operational, providing a year round facility for coaching, custom fitting, gapping sessions as well as course simulation using the industry leading Foresight Sports GCQuad. Dan played the famous par 3 seventh hole and the challenging par 5, eighteenth hole at Pebble beach alongside the club’s own three professionals, Adrian, James and Melissa.
All four professionals then took on the nearest pin challenge from the clubhouse across to the seventeenth green, some 252 yards away. This will feature in the upcoming iTS 2020 Pro tour event scheduled for the 11th of September later this year. The winner on that occasion will receive a cool £500 prize.
Dan stayed and enjoyed a drink in the clubhouse meeting the many members that attended, as well as the Club Captain Mr Mark Earnshaw. We may see Dan at the club occasionally throughout the year using the practice facilities as he is a long term friend of Meltham GC’s head professional Adrian Ambler, the two of them having known each other more than15 years.
Meltham Golf Club would like to thank Dan for taking time out from his busy schedule to come and visit the club, and we wish him well for the remainder of the season. As well as having secured his playing rights on Europe’s major golf tour, Dan has already qualified to play in this year’s Open Championship being played at Royal Liverpool Golf Club in July by virtue of his life changing victory in the Joburg Open in November. Hopefully many members can make the short trip across the pennines to support Dan in his quest for the claret jug
