Your fitting survey

Don’t neglect your options
We’d like you to give us 3 minutes of your time to complete a survey that will allow us to provide you with a better and more personal service. With your individual responses, we get a much better idea of
how we can help you. This is a win-win survey.
Give us your answers now >

Too many golfers carry clubs in their bags they very rarely use and then don’t have clubs they’d use on at least a third of the holes (if they
were in the bag). How many
wedges do you carry?
And while we’re on the subject of clubs used on every hole; most golfers play with a putter
that has a shaft length that was probably never validated as being the right length for them.
Was your putter fitted or was it trial and error?
Fill in your survey
That’s why we’d like you to complete this survey and
let us know what’s most important to you and your
playing experience.
You want it now
Are you one of the many with a handicap between
12 and 17 who could easily be single figures if only
you had a better short game? Let’s see.

The Par 3 Advantage

Knowing how to use hybrids
The hybrid was invented to provide regular golfers with distance and consistency with longer shots. More forgiving and easier to use.
 But we’ve picked up a lot of uncertainty amongst golfers on how to use hybrids. From the fairway, is it played like an iron or a fairway wood? And, is it the same when you tee up the ball?
You’ll find a lot of Par 3’s that are in the long iron/hybrid distance area. It’s deliberate. On at least one or more of the holes the course designer wants to test the longer end of your approach-shot-bag. Make your hybrids your favourite clubs by learning how to use a hybrid from the tee and the fairway. It changes the game.
Make Par 3 improvement a priority
Technique matters. It helps to make your playing experience as enjoyable as possible. Golf becomes more fun. Be proud of your technique. Be as good as you can be.
