Thinking of investing in your golf game?
Make sure you visit one of GolfBC's professional custom club fitters before your next big purchase. Every golfer has a unique swing, body shape and size; taking the time to have your clubs custom fit takes some of the guess work out of making a decision on which clubs are best for you. GolfBC's world class practice facilities provide the ideal outdoor environment for club fitting as ultimately ball flight is one of the key factors in determining the right club or set for you.
A typical fitting session will take 30 to 45 minutes and includes the following 5 steps:
- Interview Process - The fitter identifies your current ball flight tendencies, equipment specifications, likes and dislikes of your current equipment, and your needs and preferences for new equipment
- Static Fitting - Your height and wrist-to-floor measurement are used to calculate your static measurements and shaft length, and your hand dimensions are used to calculate your static grip thickness
- Dynamic Swing Test - Golf balls are hit from an impact board with special tape on the sole of the club. When the club hits the board, it leaves marks on the tape that help the fitter understand how your setup and swing affect the position of the clubhead at impact
- Ball Flight Analysis - The most important step in the process is ball flight analysis. During this step, the fitter will utilize a variety of clubs with slightly different specifications to isolate each fitting variable and determine the combination of club length, shaft type and flex, club model and grip size that gives you the best opportunity to achieve your desired ball flight.
- Monitoring Performance - Since your swing may change over time, the final step, Monitoring Performance, is ongoing. Periodic evaluation of your ball flight may reveal undesirable shot patterns with a group of irons or the entire set. A swing change, club adjustment or a combination of both may be necessary to resolve or eliminate these patterns.
