Custom Golf Clubs
Generally, a set of clubs off the shelf isn’t likely to be a perfect fit for you. Just like buying a suit ‘off the peg’. Manufacturers create clubs for folks of average build – whatever that is!
Not only is everyone different in their physical make-up, but no two players swing exactly the same. So one golf club size definitely does not fit all.
Custom golf clubs are the answer.
If your clubs are too long or too short, you’re likely to have problems, not only with your game but also your health.
To find the right size clubs for you, try swinging with a few different lengths. Basically, you choose clubs that are about as long as the distance from your navel to the floor.
You don’t need to decide right away—lots of courses and driving ranges have sample clubs that you can practice with until you find the perfect fit!
You can rent different kinds of equipment, too. Before you invest in a set of expensive clubs, try a variety of types at your local golf course.
Test the waters for a few months. See what feels best for your game.
Now, if after you’ve tried out several brands of clubs, and you’re getting serious about the game, it’s a good idea to get custom fitted by a PGA professional at a golf range.
Don’t do this until you’re able to consistently repeat a swing.
Bottom line – if you can’t hit worth a nickel, you don’t need to be fitted for clubs yet!
A golf pro can help you find which clubs are best for you. As previously stated, everyone has a different physique. Some clubs just aren’t going to feel right to you.
This is no reflection on your game and certainly no reason to quit playing. By getting custom fitted for your clubs, you will likely hit the ball more consistently and accurately.
First, the fitter will have you hit a few balls.
This is no time to try to impress. Just hit normally, and try to loosen up. Your swing speed will be recorded to determine the right flex of shaft.
The angle of the club may be adjusted for you as well. When you’re done with the “fitting”, specific recommendations will be made regarding
- Length of club
- Size and design of clubhead
- Lie angle
- Shaft type
- Grip type
- Set make-up
Then you can make a wise decision on exactly what clubs to purchase.
You will likely see an improvement in your game overall when you have the right equipment, tailor-fitted for you.
