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.

A staggering 81% of golfers have said they don’t play as often as they would like because of the credit crunch, according to a new survey released by Rewards4golf.com

Over 3,000 golfers were polled and said on average they spend £61.86 each time they tee-off but were reducing the time they spent on the course because of cost.

“It’s alarming to see how many golfers are cutting down their game because they simply don’t have the same disposable income,” said Commercial Director, Colin Whitehead.

“We’ve seen a huge surge in members for Rewards4golf.com and part of that reason must be because we’re giving golfers what they want and helping them to carry on golfing in these tough times.”

Rewards4golf.com enables golfers to earn points in their everyday shopping, is absolutely free and takes just one minute to sign up to.

In the last two months, 20,000 golfers have signed up to the unique rewards scheme, bringing the total to 75,000 since Rewards4golf.com was launched just over a year ago.

Rewards4golf.com Has Over 70,000 Registered Members Smashing All Forecasts For Its Success

North West entrepreneurs Colin Whitehead and John Woosey are celebrating a year of success following the launch of their unique Rewards4golf.com programme which has now registered over 70,000 members.

The duo based in Gatley, launched the scheme with fellow directors Tom Cowgill and Ian Lancaster last year, and in just over 12 months have already smashed all forecasts for its success.

“We knew it would appeal which is why we launched Rewards4golf.com but we’re delighted by just how successful it has been,” said Commercial Director Colin Whitehead.

“In just one year we have brought on board over 70,000 members from a standing start which just goes to show its popularity amongst golfers who have been spreading the word.

“It’s a simple formula. We just give golfers what they want. From the retailers they like to use to the products they want to redeem their points for.”

Colin, ex CEO of Manchester’s biggest PR agency Staniforth and John Woosey, are both directors of the Gatley-based JRW* Group which has a number of high profile golf brands.

They teamed up with Tom Cowgill and Ian Lancaster from prestigious golf events organisers Sports Masters International (SMI) based in Derbyshire to launch Rewards4golf.com.

“We’ve known Tom and Ian for a while on the golf circuit and it made sense for us to join forces when we were looking at the Rewards4golf.com proposition because of our joint contacts,” said Colin.

“It’s unlike any other sporting rewards scheme that we’ve seen because as well as having partners who are specialist golfing companies we’ve got high street retailers on board. That means our members collect points in their everyday life and what’s more their partners can gather points for them as well even if they’re not golfers.”

Members earn points for every pound they spend with some of the UK’s most popular retailers including Tesco, John Lewis, Littlewoods, Currys, Marks & Spencer, Halfords, Superdrug and Amazon.

They can also earn points when spending with golf specialists including Direct Golf UK, Golfbreaks.com, Golf CareGreenFree and The Golfers Club.

It takes just one minute to register a card online and is completely free. Members can earn points by shopping with more than 250 online retailers and around 3000 high street outlets. In addition, they can register more than one card to contribute to their points’ tally, so they can even be rewarded when their partner, friends or family shop.

Anyone can sign up to the scheme at www.rewards4golf.com, where they can also browse the huge variety of rewards on offer and see the extensive list of participating retailers.
