Golf Australia and the PGA of Australia are delighted to announce GolPhin as the new equipment partner of the MyGolf program from March 2018.
GolPhin, based in Scotland, designs and manufactures innovative golf clubs and learning materials that help kids aged 3-12 enjoy golf from their very first swing, and inspire them to keep playing.
GolPhin equipment will be available for purchase through the MyGolf shop by MyGolf centres and schools from March 1. Pricing will remain in line with previous equipment, and it is also important to note that conventional golf equipment will still be available for purchase as in previous years.
GolPhin clubs offer several advantages over traditional junior clubs:
- They are 22% lighter, making them easier for kids to swing and maintain balance
- The sweet spot is 35% larger, as part of an oversized club face,which makes it easier to connect with the ball and hit good shots.
- The radial sole profile provides more forgiveness and reduces resistance at impact for better contact
- High-flight grooves generate more spin to get the ball airborne quickly and flying higher.
GolPhin clubs have been recognised for their design innovation and ease of use, and were recognised as Golf Digest’s best junior clubs in both 2016 and 2017. The clubs were used in junior coaching at The Open Championship from 2014-16 and are used exclusively at David Leadbetter Golf Academies throughout the world.
From Wednesday, February 28, it is also important to note that there will no longer be a login required to access the MyGolf shop at shop.mygolf.org.au, except to purchase individual items. Through this, we aim to reduce the amount of lost logins and account resets that have been encountered.
It is also important to note that regular-size equipment will still be available for purchase into the future, although the default MyGolf participant pack and School and Club Kit configuration will include GolPhin clubs.
As a reminder to all MyGolf centres and deliverers, from 1 July 2017, the $7 participant fee,which previously went towards the school equipment rebate, will now be fully covered by the MyGolf program. This means that the MyGolf program is now effectively free for all Australian golf clubs and facilities.
