Golf is all about confidence, in your game and your equipment. That’s why at Golfgeardirect we offer the highest performing equipment and the most precise club fitting experience in the game.
Our approach to custom fitting begins with a unique understanding of the players’ performance needs born from working with PGA & European Tour players, PGA Professionals and Amateurs serious about improving their game.
Not all clubs are created equally. Even more important is the way in which we as individual players actually use them. With the research and engineering that goes into making clubs we see today – we still cannot take into account the uniqueness of every golfers swing. Look below at TaylorMade’s World #1 Dustin Johnson and World #12 Jon Rahm – they have two completely different swings. It’s very easy for amateur golfers to believe there’s actually a ‘perfect’ way to swing the golf club. This simply isn’t true.
Custom fitting is all about adjusting clubs to YOUR swing. Of course, lessons from your PGA Professional will help improve your golf swing but the tools you are using are a major factor in lowering your scores. Custom fitting essentially involves adjusting aspects of the physical club around your body’s size, swing and technique.
Take a look at former Green Jacket winner Ian Woosnam. His height, set up and the way he attacks the ball ultimately affects the lie angle of the club. The former Ryder Cup Captain’s irons are all ‘3 degrees flat’. Off the shelf clubs just would not suit his swing – and we as golfers are no different in that aspect.
In our experience the results of proper custom fitting are immediate and often quite dramatic. With the help of the technology available to us within Flightscope we can show you the difference between fitted and non fitted clubs. You can see where the club impacts on the face and the sole giving you an insight into what is needed to help improve your shots.
Our professionally trained fitters will take you through every step and we have a very relaxed approach. We all know how daunting it can be to hit golf balls with an audience so here at Golfgeardirect we’ve taken this into account with our suite designs.
You have your own private bay – just you, your fitter and the technology surrounding you in the room. We’ll often leave you to warm up and get used to the surroundings and the Flightscope screen.
Most custom fit sessions will be between 30-45 minutes depending on what and how many clubs you are being fitted for.
