Footlabs at the Travis Perkins plc Senior Masters at Woburn

Specialist Orthotics company Footlabs will be appearing in the tented village of the Travis Perkins plc Senior Masters at Woburn Golf Club from Tuesday 28th August – Sunday 2nd September.

As well as showcasing their range of custom made and pre-fabricated Orthotic in-soles to golfers and golf fans, Footlabs will also be offering all Senior Tour members the opportunity for a free consultation, worth £499. This has been exclusively co-ordinated by the European Senior Tour and Footlabs.

A typical consultation with the experts at Footlabs involves a detailed examination using the very latest F-Scan and video technology, which assesses we will problem history, barefoot walking, gait, lower limb movement, running analysis on treadmill, and more in order to assess the needs of the individual. Custom-fitted Orthotic insoles are then designed using the latest CAD design software, to address specific gait patterns and compensation movements.

Footlabs have been making a name for themselves as one of the most talked-about new products for golfers, ever since Gary Wolstenholme MBE enjoyed stunning success in his debut season on the European Senior Tour, where he finished the season in 4th position on the Order of Merit, winning the award for European Senior Tour Rookie of the Year.

Having suffered from aches and pains before turning professional, Gary was determined to have a proper check-up before subjecting himself to the rigours of the professional circuit. That’s when he went to Footlabs for an Orthotic consultation and discovered that one of his legs was longer than the other, and that this was causing him pain and fatigue when playing golf.

However, through working with Footlabs and being fitted with their custom fitted insoles, Gary’s debut season on tour wasn’t just successful, it was sensational. Not only was Gary named as Rookie of the Year, he also won his second event ever on tour and followed this success with a storming start to 2012, by winning two of the first three events. Gary is resounding in his praise of the impact that Footlabs have had on his game:

“I was worried about whether my back would withstand the rigours of professional golf on the European Senior Tour. I’ve experienced aches and pains in the past, what I didn’t realise is that these are down to my feet. A consultation with Footlabs diagnosed that I have one leg shorter than the other and resulted in custom insoles that compensate for this. I do not believe I would have achieved the success I have on tour, if it wasn’t for Footlabs” — Gary Wolstenholme MBE
