We are always pushing the boundaries of what we do and as Worlds #1 we make sure we are at the forefront of everything that keeps our fittings and clubs performing to the very best.
We had looked at Flightscope last year but the software and functionality wasn’t quite where we needed it to be. However, after a recent demonstration of both Trackman and Flightscope, we immediately knew that the new Flightscope X2 was for us. It's wireless functionality is perfect for the tour truck.
It has a whole host of different information screens that allow us the data and information to show our clients how a change of shaft or a newer head design will deliver those exceptional results. It allows us to perform better driver fittings, more conclusive iron data and wedge spin information coupled with shaft flex and flow charts.
The Flightscope doesn’t come cheap and was a pretty serious investment, along with all the demo clubs that are available during our custom fit session but it shows how serious we are about making sure our customers get the very best information and guaranteed results.
Well it’s that time of year again folks!! The ForeGolf Tour Truck is ready for another road trip.

The importance of being fitted for golf clubs especially for beginners was highlighted by a visit from singing sensation JLS earlier this week. The boys were in town performing at The O2 in Dublin and wanted to get into golf so it was decided that ForeGolf should be the first port of call.
J.L.S stands for Jack the Lad Swing and these guys could swing almost as well as they could sing. Aston, Marvin and JB spent a few hours with us and we introduced them to a whole new world of fitted clubs mixed up by ForeGolf. They were amazed at how we could take them in their new golf beginner status and transform them into fairway finding machines through some nicely fitted TaylorMade clubs.
We built clubs overnight, custom painted the heads and had them delivered up to Belfast ahead of some well earned time off and a trip to the golf course. We had a blast with the lads, they really are stand up blokes and look forward to catching up the next time they are over.
With all the madness at The Irish Open and with the practice ground so far from the truck Derek had to criss-cross the 18th fairway to get to the players. On one of his trips back he was caught by Darren Frehill who was heading up the RTE Sport team.
Derek was asked to give a little insight into what he was doing down in Killarney and also to discuss the ForeGolf plans to design and produce their own speciality wedge in 2011.
The project is underway and of course, we'll be posting updates here.
The interview first appeared on RTE on Day 1 of the 3 Irish Open 29th July 2010.
at the 3 Irish Open in Killarney and ForeGolf Tour Truck Day
We had a couple of players to see down in Killarney and teamed up with The Cleveland Golf/Srixon team of Mike Moberg and Iain “Clarkie” Clarke. Their new truck has so much more space and made life easy when we did some wedges for Philip Walton. David Howell got some work done and showed a good return to form. Gonzalo Fernandez-Castano had some adjustments to his clubs and went on to finish 3rd overall. With the play starting on the Thursday we pulled out on the Wednesday night and drove up home to Naas with the Cleveland Truck ready for our customer Tour Truck Day at the Red Lane Golf Centre.
We had a great day talking golf and we were treated to the bbq delights of Chef Secrets. We wanted our customers see whats available to the tour players and to show them how similar it is to the service we provide for the everyday golfer, except we've got every golf brand on our Tour Truck.
Iain is an old friend at this stage and helped out with a project Derek is working on before he flew out to catch up with the tour truck at the next European Tour event.
As previously reported we were asked to attend the JP McManus Pro-Am. With the top 12 golfers in the World arriving to team up with JP McManus to help raise funds for charity, the ForeGolf truck pulled up on the range to help get all the competitors tooled up for the event. We helped fit all 200 of the Taylor Made drivers and hybrids that the players got as part of their “goodie-bag”. There was even a special JP shaft for everyone to use and a very special putter was custom made for the man himself. We were kept busy as you can see from our photos.
The golfing stars were whisked away after The French Open to play the charity tournament, which has raised over €55m since 1990 with all the monies in their entirety going to the beneficiaries. The tournament's success stems from the genuine interest invested in the event by all the parties including the golfers, volunteers, supporters, media, public, and the European Tour and the committee.
Paul Gallagher from The Irish Times caught up with Derek and wanted the full low down on what went on behind the scenes.
Darren Clarke won the 2010 JP McManus Pro Am at Adare Manor Hotel and Golf Resort. The Northern Ireland golfer carded a four-under round of 68 to finish at -3. England's Luke Donald finished second on -2. The best amateur team was Lourdes Invalid Trust 1.
