Blog guidelines

In order to keep things welcoming for everyone, all we ask is that you play by our simple set of guidelines when interacting with others on the blog.

Be nice

Commenting is a great way to connect with others and share your point of view. We love a good debate, but we don’t like personal attacks, flaming, intimidation, bullying or general rudeness. And it goes without saying that we’ll delete anything which could be construed as racist, sexist, homophobic or hate-speech in any other form. We’re all grown ups, so please be respectful, constructive and play nice!

Stay on topic

We understand that people have strong opinions about the wonderful game of golf, but it’s far easier for everyone to follow the conversation if you stick to the topic in hand. If the comments in a ‘Tiger Woods Swing Blog’ feature venture into wildly unrelated territory, then we’ll probably guide you to a more appropriate place to continue your discussion.

Be aware

Think before you share and don’t hand out personal information about yourself or anyone else. This means no phone numbers, email or home addresses or any other private stuff.

Don’t spam!

By spam, we mean comments that are clearly only made to advertise and link back to your own site, product, service or affiliate offer. These comments will be deleted, as will any illegal content.

By all means leave a link to something that genuinely adds to the conversation, but make sure you explain the context. Otherwise we may assume that it’s spam and delete it.

Get In touch

We’d love to hear your thoughts and feedback on any aspect of the blog so if you want to get in touch, drop us a line on enquiries@fairweather.golf.

Smash Factor



Smash Factor and how to improve it | FairWeather Golf Blog

Smash Factor and how to improve it

Smash Factor is calculated using ball speed divided by club speed. It relates to the amount of energy transferred from the club head to the golf ball. The higher the smash factor the better the energy transfer. A golfer would hope to achieve a smash factor near 1.50 on driver shots, and a little lower as the they work through their clubs.

It is often suggested that this equations gives you an indication of the efficiency of your impact with the ball. With face to path relationships, spin loft, and impact point

FairWeather Blog : The mechanics of golf swing and back pain.

The recent BBC report from US doctors implies the modern swing favoured by the top professionals, could be leading to back injuries in golfers. Today we discussed this report with our very own Reeves Weedon, PGA fellow professional and author of the ‘Lower Body Golf Swing’

Golf Ball Spin



Spin | FairWeather Golf Blog

More spin?

Tour players are hitting the ball dramatically farther these days. Improvements in clubs and balls are contributing factors, but so is the fact that professionals have learned to reduce the amount of spin on their drives. Today’s players put in long hours finding ways to reduce backspin and create the optimal launch angle. Working on the RoboGolfPro with the team at FairWeather Golf can have a dramatic impact on your spin rate and thus lead to extra distance.

How we can help

Spin rate is one of the least appreciated numbers, especially

My Robogolfpro journey

Everyone starts their RoboGolfPro Journey for a reason. Often it follows a few months of poor play, high scores and general frustration with the game.  Whilst golf participation has been generally on the decline since 2007. There was slightly better news for weekly golf participation in Britain in the last year. Sport England suggested that the number of people playing golf weekly stands at 740,100, a rise of nearly 10,000 in a year, but still nearly 200,000 fewer than seven years ago. When discussed in more detail, most

Golf Lessons in Berkshire



Checking in on our new Ascot Berkshire home | Why FairWeather Golf is even better than before

Ascot Berkshire, our new home

It has been little over a month from when we moved our location from that of a high street store to the more appropriate home of Ascot Berkshire.

Over the last few years we have continued to listen to customer feedback, particularly around parking restrictions, lack of true ‘feel’ on the simulators and the availability of lessons.

After successfully launching a satellite concept of the FairWeather Golf by placing a RoboGolfPro at the Greenwich Peninsula Driving Range, London, we changed to direction of our business model with our

Looking forward to 2019.

For those who have started looking forward to 2019, the first question on most peoples lips is, will 2019 be the year Tiger Woods finally adds to his major titles. Now back in the world top 20, his form in the latter part of 2018 suggests he is ready. What really sets Woods apart from the field will be his experience, but he must remain injury free.

Those who follows the Women’s game will be looking to see how Britain’s Georgia Hall progresses after her breakthrough major triumph at

 Distance vs Accuracy

Would you rather hit the ball further or straighter? Sure, hitting the ball miles is good for the ego, but is hitting it straight more important for your score?

For years, we were taught “drive for show, putt for dough”. The theory being that it didn’t matter how far you could launch it off the tee if you couldn’t do the business on and around the green.

What do the stats say?

In 2018, Rory McIlroy, Tony Finau and Dustin Johnson were 3 of the top 6 in terms of driving
