Getting a proper club fitting is one of the most overlooked aspects of purchasing new golf equipment. Not being fit or being improperly fit can and will lead to more frustration, higher scores, and decreased enjoyment of the game. Golf Plus will properly fit you with a trained staff, state of the art equipment, and with your enjoyment of the game as our top priority.
How Golf Plus Club Fitting Services Work
We start all of our fittings at Golf Plus with a player interview during a warm-up session. We find out the players experience and skill level. We then find out the players goals for the fitting. The last thing we do is to evaluate the players’ current equipment.
Utilizing the data generated by our launch monitor (club head speed, spin rates, launch angles, etc.), we will determine what shaft flex, weight and kick points combined with head design, loft and directional bias will deliver optimal performance for our player. We will put together several clubs for the player to hit to find the very best fit for body type and swing mechanics. Grip type and size will complete the session.
Using many of the same data points from the launch monitor, we can make determinations of shaft flex and weight. We will discuss the type of head design that the player prefers. We will take measurements of the player (height, wrist-to-floor, along with lie board strikes) to determine the length of the club and the proper lie angle. After selecting grip type and size, we will talk to the player to come up with the set make-up determining whether hybrids should be part of the set and what wedges should be included.
We start our wedge fittings by deciding if the player prefers a game improvement (more forgiveness) club or a performance wedge or a combination of both. Again, we use data from the launch monitor, spin rates and launch angles mostly to determine shaft composition, stiffness and weight. Next we will look at bounce angles and sole grind configurations to match the players dominant turf conditions. Finally we will decide the proper spacing of loft angles to cover all the players’ needs. Grip type and size will also be chosen.
By observing the player making several strokes with the putter will help us determine what type of stroke they prefer, straight back – straight through, slight arc or pronounced arc. Putter length and lie angle measurements along with loft analysis can help us find the putter head design that will produce the best roll of the ball. For players with inconsistent face strikes we will look at putter heads with a high MOI to help with off-center hits. All of this to make sure the putter is the best performing for the players individual stroke.
All of our fittings end with feedback from the player and ensuring that all of their questions have been answered.
