GET FIT TO PLAY YOUR BEST GOLF
These questions often come up - “Should I get fit for golf clubs?” and “Will I play better if I do?”
There are several reasons why you should consider a club fitting. It makes absolute sense if you are investing in new equipment. But even if you aren’t in the market, it’s worth having your current set evaluated - JUST TO BE SURE THAT YOUR CLUBS AREN’T HURTING YOUR GAME.
For example, if you’ve had your clubs for a few years they may no longer be suited for you. Age and body changes will affect your ability to swing. Also, with your current set, you may have distance gaps that can be addressed by switching out a couple of clubs. Or, you may just need to have them regripped. This alone could make your golf life easier.
The goal is to build a set of clubs using a model that is appropriate for your playing level that is made up of clubs that are properly sized (length and lie angle) with shafts (flex and weight) and grip size that is right for YOU - not anyone else.
How does it work?
In an interview and observation as you warm up, a trained club fitter will make an assessment of your current ability, your potential, and your level of interest in developing your game. Then, by using a launch monitor, the fitter will measure what happens to the ball when you hit it.
The data acquired from this includes: Ball Speed (distance), Spin Rate (curve), and Launch Angle (flight and direction) will be used by the fitter to guide you in the process of selecting clubs that will help you play easier and/or better.
What is the process?
You have to make an appointment for a fitting. Allow an hour or so. This is an outdoor project and weather may be an issue, so plan for it.
At the fitting, you’ll go through a brief interview with the fitter to go over what club(s) you are looking for as well as to get some background information about you and your game. At this time, the fitter will also take some measurements of you and your clubs.
Then you warm up and use your own clubs to hit balls so that the fitter can observe your tendencies and gather baseline information from the launch monitor.
Using the data, the fitter will make up trial clubs that should work better than your current ones. Then you test and retest as needed until you find a combination that you are comfortable with that is customized just for you.
Fittings can be just for single clubs (Drivers, Putters). A few clubs (Hybrids, Wedges) for distance gaps. Or for a complete set of clubs.
