Putters and fitting: the facts
MyGolfSpy recently conducted research into golfers, their putters and the likelihood of improvement after a putter fitting.
The results are staggering.
That was the average improvement in putting handicaps (using the iPING app) after fitting. That’s a huge improvement.

We’re helping because your children should
Three great reasons your children should learn to play golf. First, they learn it so easily and get to have a lifetime of fun.
Second, it’s a great outdoor activity that gets them away from the frantic, digital pressures of an ever faster life. And most importantly it’s something they can do with you for the rest of time.
If you have a child or grand-child, then let us get them into golf while they find it so easy.

Derek and Sheena
