Dynamic custom fitting is the establishment of the specifications of a club or set of clubs for an individual, whilst the person is actually hitting golf balls. The Professional providing the fitting service has an extensive checklist to take into account when providing a fitting including:-
- Flight, spin and launch of the ball
- The players posture and technique
- Shaft length
- Shaft flex
- Shaft weight
- Shaft torque
- Shaft kick point
- Lie angle
- Loft angle
- Bounce angle
- Grip type
- Grip thickness
- Set composition
A series of questions are also asked of the player to ensure an individual profile is created. Custom fitted clubs are of maximum benefit to golfers who have a consistent swing. It doesn’t need to be consistently good, just consistent.
As no two golf swings are the same (like a fingerprint) then it is logical to conclude purchasing standard fitting golf clubs off the rack is detrimental to achieving consistency.
Poorly fitted clubs, or clubs that have not been fitted at all, bought off the rack, online, or at a special price can cause all sorts of problems – problems that require you to create compensations in your swing.
Also as players age and body shapes change then so do their specifications. Another factor demanding players continue to have their specifications checked is the ever changing technology being released to the market.
Due to the individual nature of all club fittings, please pop in to see one of our team at the IGC Academy office at Links Hope Island or call Ian on 0418 194 123 and he will point you in the right direction.
