Important Considerations When Selecting a Club Fitting Service

Emulate the Environment

You play golf on grass. Get fitted on grass. Hitting a golf ball off a plastic plate, a synthetic surface, or even artificial turf will produce a different kind of action than it would if it were hit from grass. It is also impossible to get an accurate reading from a ball hit 10 feet into a screen. If the goal is to get better results on the golf course, you need to get the most accurate input from your fitting experience.

Get Complete and Precise Measurements

The Flightscope System, which incorporates military-grade radar and advanced technology takes 27 measurements of the golf swing and ball flight. And it achieves this with an extremely high degree of accuracy. The Mizuno Shaft Optimizer takes five measurements of the shaft performance by any individual golfer. The combination of these two systems ensures the most precise data delivered to the club fitter, particularly with irons, the most important aspect of the fitting process. And finally, your grip must measured for the correct size and feel for your hands.

Have Access to the Best Available Equipment

Not all club fitters offer the premium brands of golf clubs. Some fitters use only unbranded components (knock-offs) is constructing their clubs. This reduces the percentage of specification accuracy, and sometimes shortens the performance life or limits the quality of the clubs.

Other fitters have access to only one or two major brands of equipment. And this limits access to the choice of the newest technology offered by all the top brands.

Only Work with the Best

There are lots of ways to get fitted for golf clubs. You can use a country club pro, a clerk in a sporting goods store, or even get fit online. But if want golf clubs that are precisely fit for you, it is critical that you work with a certified professional. This means someone who is extensively trained on the fitting equipment, who can adjust errors in your set up or swing, and can interpret the data so your clubs are specified exactly to your requirements.

For the best results and personal satisfaction with the process, select the club fitter with highest peer recognition, someone who is referred by PGA club professionals, and has an extensive list of satisfied golfers, both men and women, at every playing level.

Require Continuing Support

With club fitting, it’s not over when it’s over. As you use your clubs, you will have to break away from the swing and set up errors you were making to compensate for hitting ill-fitting clubs. You may also need some further adjustment to your clubs as your swing changes. The best club fitters offer their clients an opportunity for tune-ups and swing tweaks. Be sure to know what’s available from the fitter that you select.
