Custom Club Fitting
Learning to hit the ball solidly can be a difficult task in itself without the complications of ill-fit clubs. Golf club evaluation is an important part of every student’s game improvement program. I don’t believe a teacher can be as effective as he or she can be without addressing the fit of their students’ golf clubs. I believe the teachers who have tools on their lesson tee to address equipment issues have a tremendous advantage over those who don’t – and it’s the student who reaps the benefits. I use the same process the pros use when they get fit for clubs … they hit clubs outside, from real grass, and can see the ball in flight. Studying the ball’s flight allows us to dial in on specific components of the club while the student witnesses the enhancement of properly fitted golf clubs. The most important aspect to proper club fitting is that it is done with a trained professional in an outdoor setting. The feel of the club is extremely important and so too is the sound. For the player to get an accurate representation of this, the ball should be struck from real grass while receiving the feedback of the ball’s flight.
Additionally, it’s vital that a person go through an interview with the teaching professional/club fitter to determine if the student, among other things, is working on anything in his or her set-up or swing.
Why is an equipment evaluation an important part of instruction?
The equipment you use affects the ball flight. Because equipment affects ball fight it also affects a golfer’s motion. If your clubs are ill-fit, you’ll build compensations into your swing to get the desired results. For example…if the components of your clubs influence the ball flight right of target (ie. lie angle too flat, shaft too stiff, etc.), even when the face is square at impact, you will develop a compensation to get the ball to go more left.
You’ll understand how the components of your clubs – the grip size, shaft flex, length, loft and lie angle – affect your motion, and the distance, direction and trajectory of your shots.
Just as important is the right set composition. We’ll help you determine just the right combination of woods, irons, hybrids and wedges that compliment your style of play.
