They say that “it only takes one great shot to bring you back again.”
Next time you’re out we want you to hit more great shots than usual.
Then we want you to hit even more the next time.
A set of irons working for you and not against you makes this so much easier to achieve.
You’ll square face to target; and sole to turf; experiencing the real joy of sweet contact
so much more often. 
There are over 1,000 fitting options on
any single iron. Wow. Yes, lie angle; shaft type;
and length & flex alone usually makes for over
900 options. And we still haven’t touched grip
type and size; swing weight;
or even the amount of offset.
The correct lie angle on your irons brings
the sole of the club back square to the turf
at impact. An incorrect lie angle will make that
very difficult to achieve. Depending on whether
you are toe or heel up at impact, the face will be
pointing to the hook or slice side of your target
at impact. Why suffer that challenge?


Don’t suffer in silence. Let us help you hit more great shots.
Check out your lie angles with us.


In a recent survey 38% of the golfers who responded,
stated that the greatest motivation to join a coaching
programme was “hitting better golf shots”.
We agree. The pleasure you get from hitting good
golf shots more than justifies any time spent
on improvement.

What is it that you enjoyed most about your last round? Was it the score? Was it winning?
Was it the social experience? Was it enjoying the moments when you hit a shot flush, solid, and accurate?


Investing some effort and time in improving your ball striking brings you all of the above.
The joy of better shots more often; a better score; more victories; and surprisingly to some, a better social experience.
Next time it’s going well, check your lightness of mood. We bet you’re having more fun with your friends. 

Every time you hit a great golf shot, you feel a real sense of accomplishment and fulfillment, however good or experienced you are. Come on. Take a step to hitting more great shots.
