Why should you get custom fit clubs?
FACT #1 – Custom clubs do not cost more than clubs bought off the rack!
FACT#2 – 100% of all golfers need custom specifications in one of the areas listed below.
FACT #3 – Custom fitting of golf clubs cannot be done hitting into a net.
FACT#4 – Custom clubs have a turnaround time of 7-10 business days.
Following are the steps involved in a custom fitting process.
Step #1 – Oral interview. This would provide the fitter with information about your shot tendencies, practice habits and the goals you have for your golf game. It always helps us if you include why you want to get fit…For example, you want to increase your distance, prevent a certain curve on the ball or even promote the curve of the ball in your direction of choice.
Step #2 – Fitting for the correct length of your irons. Playing clubs with the incorrect length promotes more off center hits resulting in a significant loss of distance. Test results have proven that when hitting a six iron, a 1 inch off center hit costs you about an 8% loss of distance.
Step #3 – Fitting for the correct lie angle. Playing with the incorrect lie angle will cause tremendous direction control problems or changes in technique to compensate for the improperly fit golf club. Test results have shown us that for each 2 degrees of incorrect lie angle the ball will be 20 feet off line!
Step #4 – Fitting for shafts. 3 factors are looked at in determining your shaft.
Club Head Speed
The faster you swing a club the heavier and firmer shaft you might need to optimize your ball flight, distance and control.
The rhythm and tempo of your golf swing contributes to the amount of flex you impart on the shaft at the start of your downswing. Having the correct amout of shaft load affects both distance and control.
Players have a huge say in how the shaft feels (heavy, light, too stiff, loose in the tip, etc) and the ball flight it produces. We have a wide variety of shafts that can still optimize ball flight but “feel” much better to the player.
Step #5 – Grip size and material. Grip size can be measured, but it also dependent on player feedback as to which size feels the best. The material of the grip is strictly based on player preference (rubber, cord, ½ cord, and multi-compound)… there are only about 100 different choices.
Step # 6 – Set configuration. This is huge a part of the fitting process and very important in getting you ONLY the clubs you need. Most of today’s golfers are using hybrids instead of long irons due to their increased forgiveness and shot making ability. We make sure that we have the proper “gapping” between fairway woods, hybrids, and irons. This process very closely ties in with our wedge fitting because of PW loft as well as keeping within the 14 club limit. Everyone has different needs! A limited number of options are available here…And we will recommend whatever fits your game the best.
Step #7 – Wedge fitting. This is the most complicated part of the fitting process. Scoring from within 100 yards is the key to lowering your score, yet this is generally the most over looked part of fitting.
How well a player controls his distance and his ability to stop the ball to a front pin determines how many “tools” or wedges a player will need. Having a consistent loft gap between your pitching wedge and the rest of your wedges will be analyzed.
The iron fitting is a great indicator of where you will be with your wedges, but PGA Tour average shows us that most player’s sand and lob wedges are usually 1-2 degrees flatter than the rest of their set. A player’s highest lofted clubs are used most often for chipping and pitching and not full shots from the fairway. The posture for chipping tends to have more inclination at the set up, which can cause the heel of the club to dig (a big no no in wedge play!).
Bounce and Sole Grind
Having more bounce on your sand wedge for bunker shots and less bounce on your lob for tight lies and the ability to hit high soft lobs.
Bob Vokey has said that the heart and sole of the wedge is its grind. There are many different sole grinds to fit every players needs and enable the player to hit a greater number of shots around the green.

Step #8 – Driver fitting. There has never been a time when fitting your driver was more important. Drivers are vastly different depending on the manufacturer. Fitting for length is just as important as it is for irons. The incorrect length will cause more off center hits resulting in a huge loss of distance and accuracy. Optimizing a player’s launch angle can dramatically increase a player’s distance, sometimes up to 50 yards. Different drivers launch the ball at different angles. What you fit for in one driver may not be the same as it is for another. Outdoor ball flight is mandatory for driver fitting.
