Hurrah for Huxley after Dan’s Dubai delight

0702DanWillettDanny Willett, who sank a 15 foot putt at the weekend to win the Omega Dubai Desert Classic, is no doubt reaping the benefits of a Huxley Golf putting green installed in a purpose built practice studio at his home near Sheffield.

The Yorkshireman’s new permanent indoor putting green was created using Huxley Golf Premier Putting Turf with infill on a timber base.

With a three per cent slope and measuring 12ft (3.6m) x 7ft (2.1m), it gives Willett the option to practise privately at any time, day or night.

The Huxley Golf tournament quality surface is specially designed to mirror natural golf greens and was specified in this case because it offers the most consistent ball roll.

“The flexibility that this will give me as part of my training regime is fantastic, and the surface seems great – just like putting on natural grass tournament greens but in the privacy of my own home,” said Willett

Dr Paul Hurrion, who specialises in putting analysis and advice and has been working with Willett to perfect his putting, suggested the installation.

He commented: “Huxley Golf has installed a number of putting greens both for me at my own clinic and at my request for my clients. I consider the Huxley range of all-weather surfaces to be the best available and I have no hesitation recommending them for training and practice purposes.”

Paul Chester, general manager at Huxley Golf which is a PGA Official Supplier, added: “Huxley Golf Premier Putting Turf is amongst a range of bespoke and modular solutions that we have designed to enable indoor and outdoor golf practice at home.

“Our clients appreciate the fact that Huxley Golf surfaces are not only rubber stamped by The PGA but that they are chosen time and again by the best golfers and clubs in the industry.”

Willett is part of an expanding list of the world’s legendary golfers, pros and celebrities who have chosen Huxley Golf greens for practice at home.

Sir Nick Faldo MBE and the British Ladies number one Catriona Matthew MBE are amongst those who have installed private practice areas.
