The Club Fitting Process

Club fitting has similarities to getting a suit properly tailored. You want to feel as comfortable with the clubs as you are with a tailored suit. When analyzing your swing, a fitter will look at many different aspects such as club head speed, ball speed, spin rate, launch angle, and carry distance. These numbers help determine which clubs will fit you the best. The next step is finding out what exactly are you looking for.  Are you looking for a driver, irons, or a full set? We recommend doing some research to find out what clubs or new technology peak your interest.  When you schedule a fitting, you can discuss with your club fitter and he or she will provide good recommendations on different clubs to test during the fitting. For irons, options could include game improvement irons with extra forgiveness, a player’s iron with less forgiveness/more workability, or tour level irons with a compact head and best feel. There are different types of shaft options available from steel to graphite, and different shaft flexes depending on several swing characteristics such as swing speed. Oftentimes, the shafts can make the biggest difference in the dispersion and trajectory of your shot. Since there are so many aspects that go into a fitting, we recommend working with a certified fitter that can guide you through the process.
