Something About Club Fitting

Club fitting is a process in which a trained fitter creates a set of clubs that is perfectly matched to your swing. To do that, every aspect of the club is studied—from head and shaft to grip, loft, lie angle, and feel.

The length and weight of a golf club along with the shaft flex, the loft on the club head and the size of the grip determines how a club performs in regards to distance, accuracy and feel.

By identifying your swing preferences, ball flight pattern and physical capabilities, these factors can be modified to ensure your golf club allows you to perform to the best of your abilities:

The length

The length of a golf club will affect your ability to strike the ball from the club’s sweet spot (which is necessary for maximum distance and accuracy).

The weight

The weight of the golf club will determine the speed at which you are able to swing the club head through impact (the faster it swings the further the ball travels).

The flex

The flex of the shaft will affect the way the club feels and performs during the swing and if not correctly matched to the speed and style of your swing will lead to loss of distance and an inability to create the right trajectory.

The loft

The loft on the club head will determine if you are able to launch the ball at a sufficient angle to maximize the distance of the shot.

The size

The size of the grip will determine how the hands and club face act throughout the golf swing (which in turn will determine direction of the shot).

The benefits of custom fitting are evident when using wood clubs and irons but is also of paramount importance with wedges and putters which when correctly fitted can have a huge impact on your ability to lower your score.
