I think most GH outlets have fitting facilities. The only difference is whether the fitter is reliable. Note that the fitting isn't going to be as thorough as what you'd get from the likes of BFG, Torque, WizGolf etc.

I believe GH charges for fitting BUT they will absorb the cost if you end up buying the irons.

Note also that GH can be flexible. Don't assume that the prices you see on the sticker are fixed, especially if you're buying a lot. Bargain by asking for freebies and trying to get further price reductions. They can accommodate but it also depends on what you're looking for and how far you push.

Meh never crossed my mind to bargain at GH. Esp the items already on discount?

Anw. The MP59s are great. Supposedly more forgiving than the MP58s. I'm gaming the mp58s too. Very solid at impact. Very nice irons.

Not sure abt GH fitting, but the last time I request to have a set from 5-P, they told me I would be charge at the full retail price. Not the discount price.

I tried to bargain a bag but they did not want coz it was already trade in promotion etc... but i forgot to ask for freebies... i will ask them later !


in GH right now they have a 20% discount on everything almost (clubs or apparels etc) and u get a voucher of 28Sgd if you spend more than 228 (somethg like that) SGD to use before end of feb.

i asked for the fitting, they told me to go for William in Suntec. As Mizuno is their house brand, the fitting might be free. (to negotiate i guess)
does anybody know William fitter in suntec?

Yup. Look for William at suntec. Or better yet, get your sales person to call him. He will be able to adjust ur lie angles. Can also change ur grip size If u need to. But If u wanna change to another type of grip then u gotta pay.

If they wanna charge u, then do it at elsewhere or try making a fuss. Explain to them that u paid so much for ur new clubs etc. Think they charge like $10.70 per club including gst so not worth it.

Shaft fitting? I tot u decided on the NS PRO regular? I'm pretty sure They have a mizuno fitting cart at suntec. If I'm not wrong, They only have NS Pro, dynamic gold and project x options. KBS have to special order w additional charge. Maybe u might wanna get GH to check If They have stock at subtext outlet and get everything done there?
