This month marks the beginning of your new look Golf Monthly and we’d like to extend a warm welcome to our readers as your April Issue hits the shelves in the coming days.

Without wishing to reveal all the fantastic new material, we’ll just give you a taster of what you can expect in your fresh copy of GM. So, equipment nuts, this month we’ve tested the Nike Method 004 putter, TaylorMade Burner Superfast Burner driver, Srixon Z-TX irons and much more.

Our GM test team that includes Top 25 Coach John Jacobs, have tested a number of new products in order to help you start your search for the gear that suits your game. Our extensive, new Equipment section is designed to make you aware of what’s on the market with equipment reviews you can trust.

There are plenty of fast fixes from our panel of Top 25 Coaches in a revamped Instruction section, including chipping advice for you to dip in to in time for a better round come the weekend.

We’ve got our regular columnists with Sky Sports analysts Wayne Riley joining the team. This month the Australian gives us his thoughts on the Tiger Woods saga. On the features front our line up includes: Sir Nick Faldo, Chris Wood and Sam Hutsby whilst Bill Elliott asks the question: Where have all the heroes gone?

There’s much, much more including our new ‘Spike Bar’ section where we take a closer look at club news, Fourm gossip and golf debate. Plus, don’t miss out on the chance to win some fantastic golf prizes, including an opportunity to bag yourself a full springtime wardrobe courtesy of Galvin Green.

It was fantastic to get so much feedback from our focus groups and we hope you enjoy the read as much as we enjoyed putting it all together. Happy golfing from the GM team.
