A good swing combined with properly fitted equipment, will help you hit the most solid, accurate shots possible.
Unlike static fitting systems, the Custom Fitting system we use takes the dynamic of your swing and ball flight into consideration. Since each golfer possesses a unique combination of swing variables, having your irons custom fitted to your characteristics is an important step in reaching your game potential and enjoying the game at its highest level..
The main advantage that we have over custom fitting in golf shops is that our golf professional can see the flight of the ball. This is paramount in selecting the right specifications for your clubs.
PLAYING WITH CLUBS THAT ARE THE RIGHT LENGTH CAN GIVE YOU THE CONSISTENCY YOUR SHOTS HAVE BEEN MISSING
The length of your clubs plays the most important part in overall distance and flight trajectory. The combination of your skill level, club head speed, swing characteristics and posture are taken into consideration during your fitting and will help ensure that your clubs are the right length.
With proper length clubs, you have greater chance of improved ball striking and on-centre hits. And that means more distance, better accuracy and the ideal trajectory.
WHAT'S IN A LIE ANGLE?
Ball flight and direction is greatly affected by lie angle. And greater accuracy relies upon proper ball flight. Playing with the correct lie angle will improve your control and flight consistency.
Lie angle is the angle between the shaft and the ground line, when the club head is soled in a position where it touches the ground directly at the centre line of the club face.
THE RIGHT SHAFT IS AN IMPORTANT PART OF YOUR SWING
Each golfer has an ideal shaft, flex and flex point combination that is best suited for his or her swing. A properly fitted shaft will result in the desired ball trajectory and longer distance. The right shaft also gives the player the ability to shape shots. The shaft and flex combination that best fits the players swing depends on club head speed and the transition from back swing to downswing.
After being fitted for the correct shaft, your club head will respond in sync with your swing, giving you more distance.
SHAFT FLEX TOO STIFF/TOO HEAVY
Lower than ideal trajectory
Lack of solid feel and contact
Loss of distance
SHAFT FLEX TOO FLEXIBLE/TOO LIGHT
Higher than ideal ball trajectory
Poor directional control
CHOOSING YOUR GRIP
Grips are the only contact you make with your club. Feel, distance and control directly relate to this relationship. Ideal grip size will allow the proper release of golf club and less tension on the player's hands and forearms. Grip size and style should not only be comfortable, but also result in more control. The key to finding a comfortable grip is to look for a light touching of the fingertip to the thumb pad when gripping the club.
