    Rory McIlroy Vs the Robot: Who Will Win The Battle?

    September 18th, 2014

    At the moment, Rory McIlroy seems capable of beating every human golfer on the planet. Not content with smashing a 436 Yard Drive at the recent Scottish Open and following that up with victory in three top ranking golf events, including the British Open and US PGA Championship , in 2013 Rory had his eyes set on a very different challenge.

    Does Tiger Woods Need a New Coach?

    September 6th, 2014

    Perhaps the least surprising golfing news this year came earlier this week when Tiger Woods announced that he had parted ways with his coach, Sean Foley after working with him for the past four years.

     

    Since leaving Hank Haney in 2010, Woods has failed to add to his major tally, but did record eight wins in partnership with Foley, although five of those came in his most successful season of late, 2013.

    Why a Lessons with a Golf Pro beats an Instruction Book or Video Every Time

    June 18th, 2014

    It is the time of the year when people who perhaps do not play the game of golf, often consider buying a loved one a golfing present. One of the most popular items to gift someone, especially a high-handicap golfer, or a beginner, is a golf instruction video, or a golf instruction book.

     

    Certainly both of these items have their use, but can they really improve your game, or is there a better way you can help a loved one shoot lower scores on the course next year?

    That’s what Gorilla Golf have attempted to find out…
