Greetings from The Golf Academy

As we move through spring, you'll notice the greens getting firmer. You can no longer rely on soggy ground to hold your ball by the pin; clean strikes, generating backspin, are the order of the day.

There is a major misconception about backspin - that it is created by the grooves in the clubface of our irons and wedges. Not necessarily true. In fact, a lofted face with no grooves at all would produce as much backspin.

The key here is moisture; in damp conditions the ball just slides up a grooveless face, creating a spinless, hot flyer. Grooves, then, act like the tread on a tyre, dispersing moisture and allowing the face to grip the ball even when wet.

Grooves are an often-overlooked yet vital part of a golf club's design, and the game's leading brands devote a lot of time and effort to it. The irons we stock sport the latest spin-generating technology; so why not trial some new models this week? After all, there are few better sights in golf than an iron shot, struck with authority, settling quickly by the pin. Click here to enquire about the right wedges for your game.

Make your GPS do the work

Today's distance measuring devices are accurate to within a yard, giving you precise yardages to the flag. But that's only of any use to you if you know how far you hit each iron. Follow these guidelines to achieve just that.
