Tour Pro Golf Clubs Reveals the Clubs Behind Justin Rose’s PGA Tour Win

Following the successful launch of new golfing website Tour Pro Golf Clubs last week, the Tour Pro Insider can reveal the clubs used by world number seven Justin Rose, who prevailed at the recent WGC Cadillac Open at Doral in Florida.

Tour Pro Golf Clubs uses inside information gathered from PGA and European Tour events across the globe to help inform golf fans on precisely which brand of clubs and equipment their favourite players endorse. This allows budding golfers to get closer to replicating the feats of the likes of Rory McIlroy and Tiger Woods than ever before.

The WGC Cadillac Championship, hosted at the TPC Blue Monster at Doral, Florida was the first port of call for the Tour Pro Insider following the launch of the new Tour Pro Golf Clubs website and he witnessed a thrilling win for Justin Rose.

Rose held off a spirited challenge from new world number one Rory McIlroy – who eventually finished back in third – and the talented American Bubba Watson, to clinch the biggest PGA Tour win of his career to date.

His progress around The Blue Monster course was followed closely by the Tour Pro Insider, after he tipped Rose as a good outside bet to take the tournament days before the South African-born Englishman set foot on the first tee at Doral.

These close observations, along with extensive research gathered following the European and PGA Tours for numerous years, allowed the professional golf expert to determine the exact clubs Rose used to conquer The Blue Monster and card 16 under par for the tournament – one shot ahead of Watson.

Golf enthusiasts can visit Tour Pro Golf Clubs online to find out how Rose’s golf bag compared to that of his rivals. Users will also find the full leaderboard from the WGC Cadillac Championship, complete with the preferred brand of clubs endorsed by each pro player.

Swapping The Road For The Carpet!

Fair weather cyclists have been spear-heading the latest fitness craze of “stationary biking” in the privacy of their own homes.

High Street store Halfords has discovered a startling rise in sales of Turbo Trainers as more and more people discover the benefits of the clever device that turns an everydaybike into a fitness machine.

Cheaper than gym membership, far less intrusive than a cross-trainer, treadmill or conventional exercise bike; latest figures from the cycle, leisure and car parts retailer show sales of the machines more than doubled when the cold, wet, weather pushed all but the most committed cyclists indoors.

Asked where the preferred home for the turbo trainer was, 80 per cent said the garage, 10 per cent a spare room, 5 per cent the kitchen or dining room while 5 per cent admitted to using the main living room and exercised while watching TV.

Halfords cycle expert Justin Stevenson said: “It is no secret that the number of people cycling goes up as the weather gets warmer and down as it gets chillier, but the new generation of excellent cycle trainers, with great stability and different levels of magnetic resistance to mimic harder rides, have been keeping people occupied.

“In these uncertain economic times people are looking to get the best use possible out of the equipment they have and turbo trainers are a great way of ensuring you can keep your fitness levels up by cycling even when you don’t feel like going out in the cold and wet. An added bonus is that they take up little space when not in use.”
