PowaKaddy has backed England’s leading amateur golfers with the presentation of a fleet of cutting edge FW7 electric trolleys to the England Golf Men’s Squad at Royal Lytham & St Annes.
The new Freeway Series from PowaKaddy, of which the FW7 is the flagship model, has been improved and upgraded for 2015 with new larger 11” wheels and a reshaped PowaFrame® to raise handle height for enhanced use among taller golfers.
The fleet, gifted for use throughout the 2015 golfing calendar as part of PowaKaddy’s long-standing status as England Golf’s Official Trolley Supplier, features all-white frames complete with the England Golf logo.
The presentation took place at the Open Championship venue, as the nation’s future stars prepared for the busy season ahead with a warm-up for the prestigious Lytham Trophy, competed for annually over the renowned Lancashire layout.
Each of England Golf’s leading women amateurs will also benefit from the innovative PowaKaddy FW7, which will be presented to the Women’s Squad ahead of the international match against Spain at Burnham & Berrow from May 9-10.
Commenting on the performance benefits that the England squads will draw from using the industry-leading FW7, PowaKaddy Marketing Manager, Mei Tierney, said: “The FW7 is beyond doubt the best-performing electric trolley that we have ever created and we have seen remarkable success for this model in 2015 already.
“From a recent study we have conducted with one of golf’s most prominent specialist physiotherapists, we have conclusive evidence that electric trolleys can help golfers to play better.
“We are delighted that, through our role as Official Trolley Supplier, we will be able to bring these benefits to some of the best young players in the country as they represent England while competing at the highest level worldwide.”
Nigel Edwards, the England Golf Performance Director, said: “Playing up to 36 holes a day on some of the world’s most challenging courses and under immense pressure places great physical and mental stresses on our leading amateurs.
“Using an electric trolley has been proven to allow our squads to better deal with these demands while on the golf course, helping them to play their best when it matters most. I’m delighted that PowaKaddy is continuing to support England Golf in the provision of this essential equipment.”
