Sky Sports' coverage of the British Masters saw high-profile members of the European Tour feature in a series of Masterclasses at Close House.
Major winners including Rory McIlroy, Sergio Garcia and Danny Willett were among the stellar names to showcase different strands of the game to the interested spectators at Close House.
The final Masterclass of the week saw tournament host Lee Westwood field questions from the public about various aspects of the game including tips on how to perfect the ideal strike with the fairway wood off the deck.
Meanwhile McIlroy, a late addition to the event's field, headed to the Sky Zone where he talked through the different facets of his preparations for iron play and his swing routine to Sky Sports' Nick Dougherty.
Another player to hold a special Masterclass was 12-time European Tour winner Ian Poulter, the 2015 host at Woburn, who demonstrated his ability on the putting greens.
The Englishman has gained a reputation for his consistency with the putter which has helped Europe on countless occasions in the Ryder Cup.
Garcia, following his opening round, gave a unique insight into the art of driving and some very important tips on how to get the most out of the biggest club in the bag in front of a packed crowd near the practice facilities at Close House.
Willett, last year's Masters champion at Augusta, was another player to advise amateur players around the country about the difficulties and techniques for improving the all-important bunker and chipping game, which sets the best apart from the rest in the professional ranks.
The live Masterclasses proved a huge hit with the watching public and once again enhanced Sky Sports' reputation for innovative and extensive golf coverage.
