Here's Why We Think Fitting Is Essential!

Here shows an example of correct and incorrect lie angle.

When it comes to a driver fitting, getting the correct loft and shaft is extremely important. If the spin rate is too high then the ball will have too much backspin on it which will lose you distance. 

See table below for examples:

One last thing…Lots of our visitors regularly ask us "how much extra do fitted clubs cost?" The answer is simple - a fitted set will cost exactly the same as an equivalent "off the shelf set" the only difference will be you will know it has been made to your exact specifications to give you the best possible chance of maximising your golfing potential!

Important news 

Modernising Golf's Rules

Last week the R&A proposed some key changes to the Rules of Golf from 2019. Their Rules Modernisation initiative has been underway for a few years now and this is the next stage in that process. The aim is to not only make the Rules easier to understand, but also to address some of the game's current problems, such as speed of play, and ensure they fit the needs of today's game.

Please spare a couple of minutes to complete our survey, which gives you the chance to have your say on the proposed changes.

We've picked out some of the most significant Rules changes for you to digest in this survey, before giving you the chance to say whether you agree or disagree with each of them. It'll be great to know your thoughts.

Have your say here.
