Custom fitting will benefit everyone
Custom fit golf clubs are not necessarily more expensive
If a sales assistant recommends that a particular golf club is a good one for you without been tested on a launch monitor, ITS A SALES PITCH – WALK AWAY!
A Highly qualified Individual to assess your swing who is non commission based therefore Unbiased.
Golf Simulator with Launch monitor technology
Golf balls used by yourself (range balls do not perform in the same way and readings are inaccurate)
Your own current clubs (6 iron, Driver) – Without these we are unable to asses if new clubs are of benefit. If you are a beginner then this is not necessary.
You need to keep an open mind. As we are independent and offer all brands we cannot possibly tell you that one brand is better than another. Keep this in mind as you may get a nice surprise if a cheaper club out performs your pre desired selection

TaylorMade Custom Fit
Here at Golfsupport we use the TaylorMade SelectFit System that allows our P.G.A Qualified custom fitters to quickly and easily experiment with different shafts and head combinations so that you can try the head and shaft of the club that is the best fit for you.
- Grip size- when choosing a grip it is important that you have a grip that is the correct size. If the grip is too small for your hands then you will naturally squeeze the grip tighter. This will cause tension in the forearms, upper arms and shoulders. If the grip is to big you will not be able to apply the correct amount of pressure to be able to control the club head and it will be very difficult to rotate the club head in to the correct position through impact. A grip too thin can result in over hooking and a grip too fat can result in slicing.
- Lie angle- at the point of impact the club head will make contact with the ground. It is important that the club head hits directly in the centre. If it strikes the toe or the heel of the club then the club head position will alter. This can lead to shots being offline. Tests have shown that if the lie is only one degree out the ball can be offline by up to 10 yards.
Once we have determined the correct measurements of your golf club we can move into the more technical aspect of matching a shaft and head type that will improve your game. There are many aspects to consider and our fitter will by now have already identified a guideline of required shaft flexes from your initial data. This is where his expertise will shine and by matching a different head with a different shaft you will see for yourself the exact improvements on the screen before you.
The data on the screen is measuring required information to determine the correct club for the individual. This data includes:
Club head speed
Angle of descent
Clubface angle/side spin
You will now have tried several different shafts and heads and the averages will be on the screen before you.
You can now make a fully informed and accurate decision about which golf club is tailor made to your golf swing.

Golf Ball Fitting
If you have taken the time to read the above then consider the differences between all of the golf balls on the market from Titleist to Nike, Srixon to Callaway and at the forefront of ball fitting, Bridgestone.
With different compressions, cores, dimples and covers it is obvious that the ball will react differently to each individual golfer. The top tour players would not use any old ball – So why do we?
At the Golfsupport Flagship Superstore on Union street in Mansfield, Nottinghamshire we are very excited to be able to offer once again a totally unbiased detailed analysis of the correct golf ball for your game.
You need a Simulator – we’ve got one!
You need a Launch monitor – we’ve got one
You need a Qualified Professional – we’ve got one
You need to use proper golf balls (not range balls) – we’ve got loads
Every individual compresses a ball differently, has a different angle of attack, swing speed and so on therefore we can assess what your current ball does for you and make improvements as you require. It may be the obvious, more distance
you require or more back spin or for all those slicers out there what about a ball that reduces side spin, yes there is one and we will find it for you, all this for only £15. We are so confident that this will improve your game that we will not charge you if you don’t like what you hear.
To top this off, recommend 5 friends to us after your ball fitting and we will GIVE YOU FREE 1 dozen balls that suit your game
A customer testimonial
Ball Fitting “What an Experience”
I had been coerced into having a ball fitting by one of my golfing buddies “Book a fitting it’s unbelievable, only £15 “he was constantly saying. Eventually I gave in Phoned Richard at Golfsupport and booked my appointment for yesterday morning. On arrival I handed over my £15 and entered the state of the art simulator with a screen as big as the side of a house. Even with all this technology I found myself still very much sceptical as to how much difference a ball could make to my game, and also pretty sure that having played off a handicap of 4 I already had the ideal ball in my bag (TaylorMade TP Red). Richard arrived introduced himself, asked various questions about my game, ball flight etc and advised me to warm up hitting a few balls in the simulator. Once loosened up Richard explained that a Vector launch monitor would be used in conjunction with the simulator to analyse ball flight, spin, launch angle, carry, total distance and many more criteria way beyond my comprehension in order to find my perfect ball.
We started with my ball of choice a TP red hit 5 shots and then reviewed the results, reasonable carry, acceptable total distance and straight all five landing around the middle of the fairway, I was sure at this point that I was going to be only the second player ever that Richard had fitted and had ended up with the ball they started with. On we went through half a dozen other balls and amazingly with each change Richard made either a little more carry, increased back spin or better launch angel seemed to be gained with each new ball (the sceptic in me was sure these increases were due to me getting more into the groove rather than the change of ball) after 45 minutes Richard arrived at a conclusion, the ideal ball for me was the Bridgestone RX giving me an additional 9 yards of carry and in total going an extra 21 yards off the tee. “Before we finish Richard I would like to hit a couple of shots with the TP red” in my own mind I had to know whether the sceptic in me was right, 3 shots later I was at the counter buying a dozen Bridgestone RX golf balls.
I can’t believe that changing to the correct ball has added over 20 yards to my tee shots, which in turn will mean I will be playing 1 to 2 irons less for my approach shots into greens.
I write this in the hope that others can learn not to be as sceptical as I was about a new way of improving your golf for less than the cost of a sleeve of balls, add to this the offer that if you don’t see improvement they will give you your money back then what are you waiting for ?
As my Golfing pal said“Book a fitting it’s unbelievable, only £15”
