Perfect fit!

If you just pulled out your old sticks hoping to have a game, you may find that they don't feel like they used to. The grips are cracked, the heads are rusty and the shafts don't bend quite the same. Sometimes soap and water can make a big difference but you may find they were fitted when you were younger and stronger and don't suit you anymore. You need to use clubs that are built for the body you now possess and not the one you think you have. Using modern technology can make you feel young again so don't try and fake your age or strength, bring your old bats in to our test studio and we can tell in just a couple of swings if you are using the right equipment. Watch this before you try out new clubs.

If you want to improve your game, give us a call on 95173471 and make an appointment for a lesson with David

When you buy a golf club or a replacement shaft it can be difficult to simply base your choice on flex. There are no standards for flex between brands and manufacturers and no exact correlation between swing speed and flex. Two players can both swing 95 mph and one use a regular flex and the other a stiff with equal success. It all comes down to your swing style, tempo, type of transition, wrist cock, lag and amount of body turn. Fitting is a science and its important for each individual to spend some time trying out different options.

At Golf Traders we currently have a wide selection of shafts from major manufacturers such as Project XAldilaFujikuraMamiya and more.

Watch this video before you pick your next shaft.

The PGA tour played the Genesis Invitational at the Riviera Country Club in Pacific Palisades, California. After opening with a pair of 63's Joaquín Niemann (-19) was in control of the tournament. The 23 year old from Chile followed up with a 68 on Saturday and then a 71 on Sunday to claim his second tour title and the first wire to wire victory at Riviera in 53 years. In 1985, Lanny Wadkins from the USA shot 20 under that remains the longest standing scoring record on tour. See some final round highlights here. Climbing up the leaderboard with a round of 65, Collin Morikawa (-17) shared second place with fellow American Cameron Young. After firing a final round of 66, Australia's Adam Scott (-14) completed a great week and tied fourth alongside Norway's Viktor Hovland. Other Aussies in the field were Matt Jones (-8), Marc Leishman (-8), Cameron Smith (-5) and Cam Davis (-3).

The Champions tour played the Chubb Classic at the Tiburon Golf Club in Naples, Florida. After setting the pace with an age equaling 64 in the first round, Bernhard Langer (-16) held onto the lead right up until his birdie on the final hole where he won by four shots. See some final round highlights here. With this title being the 64 year old German's 43rd on the Champion's tour, he is now only two wins away from matching American Hale Irwin's record.

Alone in fourth place was American Brian Gay (-10) who was playing for the first time in the over 50's.

The Korn Ferry tour held the LECOM Suncoast Classic at Lakewood National GC on the Commander course in Lakewood Ranch, Florida. After his self described disappointing weekend scores of 67 & 69, Korea's Byeong Hun An (-17) was still able to grab his maiden tour title even after he bogeyed the final hole of the day. Sharing second place were fellow Korean Seonghyeon Kim (-16), South Africa's MJ Daffue and American duo Scott Harrington and Ben Griffin. Overnight leader, Michael Gellerman (-15) from the USA double bogeyed his final hole to share sixth place along with seven other players.

Belgium’s Christopher Mivis (-17) was solo second after racing up the leaderboard with a closing 66. Overnight leader Tom McKibbin (-15) from Northern Ireland shared third place along with South African duo Bryce Easton and Zander Lombard.

The Latino American tour held the Estrella del Mar Open at the Estrella del Mar Golf & Beach in Mazatlan, Mexico. Seven long years and 47 starts after losing a 7 man playoff, Matt Ryan (-23) from the USA opened with a tournament-low 63 and then after sharing the lead going into the final round he closed with a 66 to finally make it into the winner's circle. Sharing second place were American Mitchell Meissner (-20) and Cristobal Del Solar from Chile. Alone in fourth place was Joseph Winslow (-19) followed by his compatriot Brian Ohr (-18). Tim Stewart was the lone Aussie in the field but unfortunately he missed the cut.
