“You are a golfer and you need new clubs because the old are as worn out as your excuses.”

Easy, so go buy some new ones – yes?

Whoa there…not so fast!

What is your handicap? – aside from your spouse 🙂

How old are you?

How tall are you?

What is your club head speed?

What is your lie angle?

Bet you got the first 3 right, at least I hope you did and no, lie angle has nothing to do with politics… or the spouse.

Buying golf clubs can be as simple as going to your local shopping mall and giving into that first lust of those shiny little suckers sitting on that rack right inside the front door.

“Damn, they look so cool and that’s what Rory uses, so yeah!!”


the repercussions, never mind the dollars if you don’t know what you really need can be as awesome as forgetting the above spouse’s birthday.
More times than I would like to remember, I have had students rock up with clubs that just will not work. Nothing wrong with the clubs – nothing wrong with the student, but they just don’t fit.

Sorry Rory…

So what do we do?

What we do is go get some clubs from a company that fits them and that would be TaylorMade here at Champions!

Please do yourself a favour and do it at with Stuart where you can really “see” what you are getting. Trackman and numbers don’t lie – nor do your eyes.

Morning Spouse 🙂

So you make an appointment and go get a fit. The above spouse can get his or her coffee over at Picotin, mess around with FB for 30 minutes or so and you are done. Yes, it is that easy.

The fit will consist of you hitting some balls with your old clubs, so Stuart can show you how bad they really are/were. The good news that when you get your brand new fitted clubs, is that those new tomato plants you just bought, will have some ready made stakes for when they get a little taller. Recycling is always a good thing…

Shaft flex, length, steel or graphite shaft, lots of perimeter weighting – or not.

All of these will be explained by Stuart and you will see the result… literally.

We have this thing these days called Trackman and or variations of. It’s a really cool bit of technology that tells you your club head speed, ball speed, trajectory, angle of attack, spin rate etc.

What those numbers will tell you and I am being serious for a moment here, is what you need in a golf club. The numbers don’t lie. Nor do your eyes. You will see the difference between a shaft that is too heavy or too soft. A clubhead that will help or hurt you. Did I mention lie angle?

Technology has advanced so much in every aspect of our world. Golf clubs are no different.

I hit the ball further now than I did 30 years ago. I would love to think it was down to my magnificent fitness and dietary regime… cough… cough. Sadly probably not.

The equipment out there now is so much better than it was 10 years ago, let alone 30, but…….there is always a but isn’t there?

You need to get fitted!
