Why Do Golfers Change Equipment?

For most it is simply because their current equipment is not performing for them or they want more from it. But, is it really all the equipment?

Surely it would make sense to assess both equipment and technique at the same time before making any purchases to understand the problem?

Many clients that come to see me are disappointed with the equipment they had previously fitted elsewhere because the underlying issue was never resolved.

Why is it that golfers who take lessons rarely have their coach involved when choosing equipment? This makes no sense.

My belief is that for equipment to have full effect a golfers technique must be taken into account to truly optimise a golfers game.

Working with golfers of all levels is what makes my job enjoyable. For me my job is about making my client’s golf as good as it could possibly be - which I promise to do.

My passion for golf has been a long one, I started playing golf 37 years ago at Romford Golf Club in Essex and became a fully qualified P.G.A. Golf Professional at the age of 24. I have been at Hylands Golf Complex since it’s opening in 1997.

With over 30 years experience I pride myself in offering a completely independent service with no commission and no sales targets.

I simply give the solution that is correct for you.
