Custom-fitted sets of Vokey wedges are among the many great prizes to be given away by golf’s big brands when the London Golf Show takes place at Glow, Bluewater, in Kent, from August 26-28.

The industry’s major names have already signed up for the show, including Cobra Puma Golf, PING, TaylorMade, Mizuno, Callaway, Yonex and Acushnet – parent company to Titleist, FootJoy, Pinnacle, Scotty Cameron and Vokey Wedges – with more expected to follow.

Each will have its own individual offering with driving bays to test out the latest equipment with many brands offering a custom-fitting option. PING is also offering fitting on its putter range using its innovative iPING app.

Dave Fanning, European marketing director for PING, said: “The London Golf Show gives PING a great opportunity to engage with members of the public and share our passion for custom fitting and how it can improve the golfer’s performance.  We have expanded our involvement in the show this year with the introduction of a putting area which will allow us to demonstrate the importance of custom-fitting within our putter range.”

In addition to PING, many of golf’s other top brands have been quick to lend their support to the show.

Callaway will be giving away sleeves of balls to visitors who stop show hosts Mark Crossfield and Matt ‘Coach’ Lockey for a selfie photo.

And Titleist is sponsoring the show’s chipping area where anybody chipping in will receive a sleeve of Pro V1 balls, with one lucky daily winner being drawn to win a custom-fitted set of Vokey wedges.

Anybody attending the show will be in profit almost immediately, with every visitor able to claim at least nine free rounds of golf. Each of nine golf clubs – The Addington, Croydon; Bletchingly, Surrey; Chart Hills, Biddenden, Kent; Cherry Lodge, Biggin Hill; Farleigh GC, Selsdon, Surrey; Surrey National, near Coulsdon; Weald of Kent, in Headcorn; Westerham, Kent; and Woldingham, near Whyteleafe – will give a free green fee to every visitor to their stand, in a package worth at least £300.

With myriad interactive stands – including nearest-the-pin, long-drive and long-putt contests; free PGA tuition; a massive indoor driving range featuring the majority of golf’s best-known club brands; custom fitting; club testing; trick-shot displays; simulators; the latest golf gadgets; extensive retail; and the opportunity to win everything from a packet of tees to an exotic golf holiday, it is the ultimate day out for any golf enthusiast.

The show will be hosted by Golf Juice presenter and YouTube sensation Crossfield, whose golf coaching videos have received more than 90 million views. He will be accompanied by fellow PGA professional Lockey, who also enjoys a substantial following on social media, where he’s better known as ‘Coach’ Lockey. The duo often work together to produce videos and will be reunited once more to entertain visitors at the show.
