Why you should get fitted for new clubs

12th July 2023

Head PGA Professional, Christian Fogden, looks into 10 reasons why you should get fitted for new clubs.


1. Length - the correct length club will help you stand at the correct length, and will help you swing consistently.

2. The shaft - Consider the best shaft that suits your game, including the flex and the weight of the shaft. 

3. The lie angle - helping hit straighter shots and better interaction with the turf.

4. Head design - Different head designs will help you with forgiveness and feedback.

5. The grip - although this is often down to personal preference, the grip size needs to suit your hand size and will help you in different conditions.
