The London Golf & Travel Show unveils pro instruction and exhibits of golf equipment and golf-centric destinations. On Saturday, see Sandra Post, the first Canadian to play on the LPGA Tour, in 45-minute clinics at 12 p.m. and 2 p.m., and check the presentation schedule for a list of additional noteworthy guests throughout the expo. Golf pros are on hand to analyze swings, help discern which kind of ball is best for individual styles, and teach negotiating skills to win back balls from territorial birds.
After achieving swing perfection and visiting the plaid face-paint station, execute a well-strategized plan of ball attacks on a driving range with clubs from Ping, TaylorMade, and other pro brands. Exhibits from resorts and country clubs in both Canada and the United States suggest skill-honing locales safer and more exotic than your neighbour’s spaceship launch pad.
