Former England international rugby player Mike Tindall and his royal brother-in-law Peter Phillips have both been fitted for Williams Racing Golf (WRG) clubs ahead of Mike’s charity golf day next month.
The golf-loving pair, who play together at Minchinhampton Golf Club in Gloucester, had their swings analysed at the WRG Centre of Excellence at Magnolia Park, near Bicester, Oxfordshire by club fitter Dean Davis to customise each club to their individual specification for maximum performance.
They were both put through their paces using the Williams’ Single Frequency (WSF) club assembly system that allows a full set of clubs to be made with the same flex, feel and swing weight – enabling the torque of the club to behave reliably throughout the set and increase swing consistency.
“Seeing how technical the setup is at Magnolia Park and how Williams Racing Golf goes into so much detail is just amazing,” said 10-handicapper Tindall. “You can see how hard they are pushing for those marginal gains that the Formula One team also have to make to be competitive,” he added.
Phillips, who like Tindall will use the clubs at the fourth annual Celebrity Golf Classic next month, said: “Having worked with Williams’ Racing team for three years, I am always keen to support them and their innovations as much as possible. Using the great brains within the organisation to develop golfing products is a logical step.”
The Mike Tindall Celebrity Golf Classic takes place at The Belfry on 20th May and sets of the same customised WRG clubs are being offered as star prizes on the day.
