Hand crafted French ex­cel­lence just for the elite...

Business First - - EXTRAVAGANCE -

How many of us have for­got­ten we’re fairly highly hand­i­capped and imag­ined we are on the greens of Au­gusta putting with Adam Scott or a back-in-time Greg Nor­man. I know I have. In fact, I’d like to swing like any­body other than my­self. I’m a ter­ri­ble golfer. It doesn’t stop me from tear­ing up the green … lit­er­ally, but I’d like to be able to play bet­ter, or at least feel like I’m play­ing bet­ter.

So I was in­ter­ested to see what play­ing Val­grine-style would be like: would it make me putt bet­ter, or would it make me feel like I be­long on the golf course? Most def­i­nitely the lat­ter.

This French brand is known for its ex­clu­siv­ity, its ex­quis­ite feel and if you’re a de­cent player its fine shot mak­ing.

For those who can af­ford the clubs at a sale price 18.265€ (a lit­tle over $27,000 aud), it is well worth the pur­chase.

Val­Grine is a club that of­fers no lim­its to per­for­mance and is cre­ated us­ing the most in­no­va­tive tech­nolo­gies.

De­sign­ing a put­ter that of­fers tech­ni­cal char­ac­ter­is­tics pre­vi­ously unimag­ined was the chal­lenge that cre­ator Gré­gory Moreau set. The re­sult? A stun­ning ob­ject show­ing that tech­ni­cal per­fec­tion is pos­si­ble. The power, pre­ci­sion, touch, sound, bal­ance, swing and han­dling are im­pec­ca­ble.

Each put­ter is man­u­fac­tured and as­sem­bled care­fully by hand with more than 20 mas­ter crafts­men in­volved in the process in France.

A tra­di­tional ap­proach is usu­ally full of com­pro­mises. How­ever, Moreau did not take this ap­proach. And it shows. Mai­son Val­Grine makes put­ters a lux­ury, full of re­fine­ment and ca­pa­ble of ex­treme per­for­mance. Both this phi­los­o­phy and this brand uni­verse are unique.

The clubs are en­tirely cus­tomised and un­der a guar­an­tee of 100% French man­u­fac­tur­ing.

Bal­ance weights

Val­Grine has ac­cu­rately mas­tered the mass of the put­ter. This know-how is unique and per­mits adap­ta­tion to the mor­phol­ogy and swing of the player (line and arc). This sci­ence op­ti­mises per­for­mance, tol­er­ance, ef­fi­ciency and pre­ci­sion.

Line of sight

These lines of sight ame­lio­rate pre­ci­sion at ad­dress. The mor­pho­log­i­cal po­si­tion im­proves the kine­mat­ics of swing by plac­ing the legs, spine, arms and eyes in line with the ball. There is just one ob­jec­tive with Val­grine: re­in­force your per­for­mance and con­fi­dence.
