The ex-England Rugby star and his royal brother-in-law were fitted using the Williams Single Frequency club assembly system

Former England rugby player Mike Tindall and his brother-in-law Peter Phillips, Zara Phillips' brother, have been fitted for Williams Racing Golf clubs in preparation for Tindall's upcoming charity golf day.

Tindall was a member of the squad which won the 2003 Rugby World Cup in Australia.

His wife, Zara Phillips, is the daughter of the Princess Royal and the eldest granddaughter of Queen Elizabeth II.

The pair, who both play their golf at Minchinhampton Golf Club in Gloucester, were fitted for the Williams Racing Golf clubs at Magnolia Park in Oxfordshire.

The fittings took place using the Williams' Single Frequency club assembly system that allows a full set of clubs to be made with the same flex, feel and swing weight to enable the torque of the club to behave reliably throughout the set.

How to get the most from a custom fitting.

“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 Williams Racing Golf are providing the top prizes in the form of custom-fitted sets of clubs.

Williams Racing Golf are exclusive partners to the Williams Racing F1 team which has won 16 FIA Formula One World Championship titles.
