Understanding A Golf Club Fitting
Basics About A Golf Fitting
Getting customized clubs will require a golf fitter to take measurements and evaluate the golfer's speed and swing to determine what clubs will work best for them. The golf fitting may take place outdoors or indoors with the use of launch monitors. Several factors that the fitter will consider.
Gender: Golf clubs are created with different lengths for men and women.
Wrist Distance: Wrist distance from where the wrist is from the floor allows the fitter to determine the length of the club.
Height: Your height is another factor in determining the length of the club.
Swing Speed: By watching the speed of the swing, the fitter can determine if you need a stiffer or more flexible shaft.
Age: Age is an additional measurement for golfers to have the right shaft flex as older golfers normally need more flex to their clubs.
Skill Level: As the fitter watches your skill level, he will be able to determine if you need a club that is more forgiving for your handicap. In time, the fitter will come to see what your ball speed, spin rate, club path and launch angle is to give you the best advice in regards to golf club measurements. You'll be able to go through the specs of each club to see if it will perfect your swing. Also, keep in mind that not everyone will have to buy a completely new set of golf clubs. You may decide to get your old clubs re-shafted and adjusted.
