Hello again golfers.
The Short Game
Ask most golfers what the biggest difference is between a scratch golfer and tour pro and besides the bank balance they'll tell you it's the short game. If you're going to work on anything over the winter then head to the short-game area. Yes, a solid long game and the ability to hit big, booming drives is something we all want, but you can save so many shorts developing a better touch around the greens - and this applies to the single figure golfers out there, too.
Some of the industry's leading brands are doing their utmost to help us improve our short games, which leads us to ask you this question: Have you ever been fitted for your wedges? If the answer is no, you could have gaps in your bag, not to mention lofts and lies that will hinder, not help, your game from 120 yards and in.

So you think you're not good enough to be custom-fit?
There's a perception among club golfers that having your clubs tailored to you is the province of the game's elite. The theory usually trotted out goes something along the lines of: "I'm too inconsistent for custom-fitting to benefit me."
The theory holds as much water as a perched links green. Your swing is a lot more consistent than you think, and technology can prove it. On launch monitors all handicap levels show remarkably similar levels of acceleration, clubhead speed, shaft loading and attack path and angle; whatever you think, your swing has a pattern. That perception of inconsistency is a fallacy, based on the fact a tiny change in the clubface's position at impact can create massive differences in ball flight.
But also, custom-fitting doesn't just refine good shots; it can also tame bad ones. That fact alone makes it relevant to all standards of player. So wherever you are in the game, come and talk to us about custom-fitting: it's a simple process… and it will have a profound impact on your game. Click here to send me your thoughts.
