Quinta do Lago North
Thu, 1st Aug 2013
Paul McGinley, the next Ryder Cup Captain for Europe holds regular open-air golf clinics at his state-of-the art Academy at Quinta do Lago. Jose Ferreira heads the everyday running of the academy. The latest addition is the TaylorMade Fitting Centre and the first one of its kind in Portugal. After your swing has been analysed, the golfer is fitted out with a bespoke set of clubs that take account of the individual quirks and enable players to hit the ball just that little bit farther and straighter. All professional golfers have fitted clubs as a matter of course and extending this same technology to amateurs has many benefits.
