Need help selecting new equipment or your current clubs tweaked?


Over time, the specifications of your clubs can change through wear and tear or your new set may not be suited to you. This can negatively affect the shots you hit. Retro-fitting takes your current equipment and adjusts it to your game making sure you get the most out of it. All aspects of club set up are covered in our retro-fitting services including:

Loft: This has a large bearing on distance. The incorrect set up can lead to losing as much as 20/30 yards.  Shaft flex: If shafts are not suited to a player, it's harder to time shots properly and can ingrain swing faults. 
Lie: How upright or flat clubs are is a major influence on strike and accuracy.  Grip size/type: Weather conditions, how often one plays and feel preference determine which grips suit best.
Shaft length: How tall a player is and the model of club used plays a big part in choosing the correct length of shaft. Club gapping: Fitting for a consistent gapping between clubs instils confidence in distance control. 

Driver Retro-fitting - £65 per hour

Maximise distance and accuracy off the tee

We can retro-fit your current driver to find the best setting and ensure that the club is the correct length to allow you the best chance of achieving consistent centre strikes.

In these sessions our aim is to maximise the player’s distance and accuracy from the tee. A centre strike will achieve maximum ball speed and for every ball speed there is an optimum launch angle and spin rate for maximum distance.

The objective is to utilise the technology we have here at the Academy to find the ideal combination of length, loft and shaft flex which will achieve optimum ball flight.

Iron Retro-fitting - £65 per hour

Improve your iron play to hit more greens in regulation

Irons are likely to comprise the majority of clubs in a player’s bag. It’s possible within an existing set that a player could be carrying the equivalent of three seven irons due to the loft and lies changing over time. Buying a new set can be expensive and doesn’t necessarily mean each iron will go the optimal distance.

Whether a player has a brand new set or one they’ve used for a while, we can make sure each iron is set up to give a player the best chance of hitting each one with the correct strike resulting in optimal distance.

Short Game Retro-fitting - £65 per hour

Wedges - improve your short game to get those lower scores 

One sure way of achieving this is to customise your wedges for optimum performance. Most players nowadays carry 3-4 wedges in their set. These should be considered as a set within a set. Each should complement the other so that the player has a full repertoire of wedge shots to meet any challenge.

As a starting point each wedge should have the same grip, shaft and flex. They should then be optimised for length, lie and loft. Distances are checked on TrackMan in order to achieve consistent yardage gaps between clubs. For the most discerning player we also offer shaft alignment, moment of inertia matching and specialist sole grinding.

Putter - success on the putting green

Often the barrier to developing a good putting stroke is an ill-fitting putter. Most putters on the market are 35 inches in length and therefore too long for the vast majority of players. Add this to an incorrect lie angle and it is hardly surprising that few golfers are in the proper biomechanical position to putt well.

Using SAM Putt Lab we can either fit you for a new putter or retro-fit your existing one for improved performance. A putter of the correct length and lie angle guides you into the correct biomechanical posture for effective putting. Putter loft is a key factor in achieving optimum roll, whilst weight balancing the putter achieves stroke stability, better distance control and enhanced feel. This results in more holed putts and improved confidence on the greens.

It goes without saying that Custom Fitting for all clubs is essential in my eyes but it is so much better when it is carried out in this educated but relaxed manner.
