Stuart Broad adds 30 yards off the tee
With custom fitting at The Belfry
England cricket star Stuart Broad will be feeling confident when he plays golf against his Ashes teammates in Australia in the coming months, following a custom-fitting session at The Belfry’s PGA Golf Academy which has added 30 yards to his game.
Broad – who will be a big part of the England team looking to defend The Ashes Down Under – paid a visit to The Belfry’s PGA Golf Academy this week to be fitted for a brand new TaylorMade M2 driver. Fitted by The Belfry’s Custom Fit Technician Neil Wain, the 6’5” fast bowler was measured for a new Project X HZRDUS Black shaft that will deliver greater distance when he plays in competitive golf matches during downtime at The Ashes Tour.
“I really enjoyed my custom-fitting at The Belfry and it was amazing to see the immediate impact even just the correct shaft has on your game,” said Broad, an 11-handicapper who is an ambassador for The Belfry Hotel & Resort. “It will massively help my golf game and I might even beat Jimmy Anderson now!”
Meanwhile, Neil Wain, who handled Broad’s custom-fit session, said: “Being left-handed and well over six feet tall, Stuart is perhaps the perfect example of why golfers should be fitted for a set of golf clubs that are tailored exactly to their swing characteristics. With some changes, particularly to the shaft, we saw Stuart clearing 300 yards off the tee, which is a fantastic result and one that will hopefully help bring his handicap down further.”
Broad was fitted at The Belfry’s PGA Golf Academy, a centre of golfing excellence offering outstanding custom-fitting facilities, including the brand new Trackman 4 Launch Monitor. To book a custom fitting session like Stuart’s, simply call the PGA Golf Academy at The Belfry on 01675 477038.
