6 reasons to get fitted

Thursday last week we had Titleist at the Club with fellow Pro Andrew Horan, and I think we can safely say it was a big success! 

Speaking about success, we had quite a few sucess stories on the day...

Graham Barrow added 40m to his fairway wood.

Peter Crowley figured out why his ball flight was way too high with driver and the fitted club fixed that.

Franco Meyer found his own irons were a pretty good fit but he had too big a gap in his short irons so he added a 54 degree wedge to fix this problem.

Joe Waipouri added 15m to his irons and drastically reduced his driver hook.

Wessel Dirksen found that longer shafts and correct lie angles made all the difference with hitting the ball in the sweet spot.

Phil Marsh gained a lot more consistency in his strike by moving to a lighter steel shaft with the correct length.


Want to be success story number 7?

If you've missed the fitting day, do not despair! Book a custom fitting with Matt, our PGA Professional. We want to help you take your game to the next level. Sometimes it is something as simple as a shaft that's not long enough, or that your driver produces too much spin for your golf swing.

Whatever the case, we are here to help.

Centre of Gravity (CoG) matters

So much written hype
How often do you read about amazing new driver crowns or faces that allow the CoG in any club to be made lower and deeper? They promise “easier launch” and “greater distance”.

The authors of these shrieking product headlines are right, but the definition of deeper or lower is marginal. A Golf Spy analysis revealed that the difference in CoG location between the CoG in a Titleist D2 Driver and a Callaway GBB Epic Driver (depending on setup) was less than 2mm!
