Custom fitting is the process by which a trained golf professional fits your equipment to your personal requirements. Custom fitting looks at your physical dimensions to ensure your clubs are the right ' static fit', and your swing technique to make sure they are the correct 'dynamic fit'.
Every golfer can benefit from having their golf clubs custom fitted. For beginners, having well fitted equipment assists in building a good swing technique - the foundation for a solid game. For higher handicap golfers, custom fitting can help to overcome repeated faults. For lower handicap players and professionals, matching the flex of shafts to the tempo of the swing makes for a more consistent game.
Does Your Equipment Fit?
If you have not had your clubs fitted, there is a good chance that they are to blame for some of your wayward shots. Take a look at the list below to see if you could benefit from a custom fit session:
Shafts too flexible – you may be hitting the ball high, hooking the ball, or experience inconsistency.
Clubs too long – You may find yourself hitting the ball fat or falling away at impact.
Lie too flat – Your shots may be going straight right of target, or find yourself with an over strong grip
Shafts too stiff – Hitting the ball low, weak shots to the right and poor distance may indicate that your shafts are too stiff
Clubs too short – If you often hit ‘thin’ shots, fall forward at impact or your knees are too flexed, you make be using clubs that are too short.
Lie too upright – A weak grip, a dislike of ‘tight’ lies and a tendency to hit shots left of target may indicate the lie of your clubs is too upright.
