Sorry It’s Been So Long

Posted by on Sep 27th, 2016 in Uncategorized | Comments Off

Yes its been a while and I would like to apologise for some what putting the blog on the back burner. Life has gone a little crazy since I last added a blog so let me start by trying to break down some of the big event that have happened.

April- I Accepted the Position of Head PGA Professional @ The Hirsel Gc and set about opening accounts and setting up the shop.
We are now under the buying group Foremost which has been superb and we have also kept the shop consistency in staff with Russell Tait working 2-3days per week still.

May- Busiest ever month getting deliveries every day for the shop while fitting in a very busy teaching and fitting diary, but the long hours were certainly worth it and thank you all for your support.

June and July- very similar patter long hours and busy in the shop and on the practice ground and also delighted to finally get our covered bays on the range finished during this period.

August- What a month!! it started with an invite to play in the EuroPro Event at Close House thanks too Lookers, I played solid all week but my shortgame simply wasn’t good enough and I missed the cut with 76,77.
However it certainly warmed me up for the following week where a -5 total gave me 3rd place and the largest cheque of my professional career at Deer PARK. Sadly due to work commitments and best man duties I’ve been unable to play again since then.

September- This saw me get to see baby Wood for second time during our 20week scan and hopefully see another golfer added to the family.
Also during September along with 4 other PGA Professional we set up Borders Golf Development to help develop and guide young Borders Golfers on the correct path.

Once again sorry for the delay and I promise to update more often.

But for now happy golfing and remember golf is much more fun and enjoyable when your playing well.

Happy New Year and Best Wishes For Your 2016 Season.

Posted by on Jan 4th, 2016 in Uncategorized | Comments Off

Monday 4th January 2016 and its back to normality after the hustle and bustle of Christmas and New Year, I hope everyone has had a great time with friends and family but we are all now feeling motivated and ready to make 2016 a great one.

For myself I will be looking to open up regular teaching days every week throughout the year which will hopefully be the same days every week and also my usual 5-9pm evening sessions to.

The same packages will run in 2016 with individual and group sessions continuing on the range and on course lessons.

There will be a re-shake in junior programs at The Hirsel with lots of new sessions being introduced as well as sessions being delivered in the primary school and after school clubs. Please watch out for notices on these from next month, Also Like my Daniel Wood Golf Facebook page to keep up to date with latest news. https://www.facebook.com/danielwoodgolf/

The clubs sheltered bays at the foot of the driving range will also be in use this year which will not only offer a dry place to practice but it will also give use a much improved length of practice area.

I have also recently invested in SkyTrak Launch Monitor and Simulator which i plan to run some exciting fun challenges with during evenings and poor periods of weather.

So 2016 looks set to be a busy one but for now its time for me to get planning and keeping my fingers crossed the weather improves soon.

Take care and happy golfing everyone.

P&H Tournament @ Renaissance Golf Club

Posted by on Jun 24th, 2015 in Uncategorized | Comments Off

Well it was May and finally time to play my 2nd event of the year, which was the P&H Championship at Renaissance Gc in East Lothian.

Check out an earlier YouTube Vlog i did with Andy Carter PGA- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KgVTexmq6yI
(please subscribe for more great content)

I really enjoyed the lay out at Renaissance and despite hitting the really solid 36putts on the first day ended in a rather frustrated 77 in the first round, Missing the cut was likely so i thought i go out and enjoy the next day and after 7 pars to start with then a 3putt on the 8th and a shank on the 9th it looked likely of an early bath! However i then played the next 7holes in 5under par and carded a 70 to make the cut by one, Delighted!!

The last round was much the same as day one, solid long game and 37putts this time, very frustrating but a cut made and finished T5th Club Professional and 40th overall. Thanks again to P&H, Renaissance GC and Scottish PGA for great event.

Since then i have done some hard work on my putting and spending more time on the practice green and shop floor working on stroke and tempo via an app on my iphone recommended by European Tour Player David Drysdale to me few weeks back.

Will report back soon

May 2015 Update

Good Day Folks.

dan-IMG_0558

Sorry for the delay in posts its been a rather busy period of teaching, playing, practicing, editing youtube videos and setting up new teach bases.

I am now a ClubGolf Roving Pro and will now be delivering junior golf sessions at a few new locations through 2015, not to forget the June Monday nights at the Hirsel and the summer camp in July.

Work is also well under way on our 2 bay sheltered bays at the foot of the practice ground which is very exciting and will add another great service to The Hirsel Golf Cluub.

I recently pre qualified at Creif Gc for the Scottish PGA and shot 71 to finish T6th, playing very solid golf without really excelling. I then progressed to the 72hole Scottish PGA Event at Gleneagles which was a bit of a nightmare weather wise and we only got 36holes completed, 76,75 was very disappointing as i hit the ball lovely but 73 putts over 36holes will simply not get it done.

Ive a very busy teaching diary now throughout May but look forward to getting a few practice session in myself to try and prepare for my next event at Renaissance at the end of the month.

Thanks again for reading my updates and stay tuned for more to come…

Question & Answers With Daniel.

Question & Answers With Daniel.

Daniel on the course practice ground
What was your route to turning Professional and when did you turn Professional?

Leaving school at 17 I undertook a Golf Management Degree at The University of Central Lancashire, after successfully completing the 3 year course I took the job of assistant at Eyemouth GC and turned professional in 2009.

Favourite Scottish Course You’ve Played?

Last year I played The Old Course at St Andrews for the first time which was very special and great experience especially the last 2holes, however I would have to say Kingsbarns was my favourite course I’ve played in Scotland, however I am due to play Carnoustie soon and I feel it may challenge it.

How Many Hole in Ones have you had?

I’ve had 3 in total, 2 as an amateur and 1 as a professional.

Strongest and Weakest Parts of Your Game?
Strongest- it would have to be my driving, I generally keep the ball in play a lot and feel confident standing on most tee boxes with driver in my hand.
Weakest- my putting has always been the weakest part of my game, although I do have streaky hot spells the putter is often very cold and certainly an area I need too focus on.
