Club Fitting

If your golf clubs don't fit, your game will suffer.

One of the biggest handicaps that most golfers have is poor fitting mass produced equipment. Industry surveys show that over 90% of golfers are playing with clubs that do not fit them.

Whether you are a novice golfer or a playing professional, Golfers Advantage can custom build a club or set of clubs to match your needs. Your clubs are custom fit using the most modern and accurate equipment made for that purpose. We use TrackMan to evaluate your swing. After extensive analysis and your approval we then build your custom clubs. Only the best clubheads, shafts and grips from the leading manufacturers in the industry are used.

The Fitting Process

1. Player Interview

Background questions will be asked about your equipment, your overall golf game and goals. You will also provide information about your equipment wants and needs. Health issues that impact your game should be discussed at this time.

2. Present Equipment Evaluation

We will discuss your current set and how your clubs work for you. During this conversation, 10 elements of your current irons and 11 elements of your woods are measured. Knowing the characteristics of your current equipment will help determine if you have adapted your swing to some deficiency in your present equipment.

3. Swing Evaluation

During this time you will hit balls using your current clubs, to determine a performance baseline.
Using TrackMan we will measure:
  • Club Speed
  • Club Path
  • Face Angle
  • Swing Plane
  • Angle of Attack

4. Performance Based Testing

Based on your swing data and your current equipment evaluation the actual fitting begins.
During this phase, you will hit numerous test club combinations from over 2100 combinations in my fitting system.
Length is the first to be fit. From there you will try different shaft and head combinations in the correct length. Data from all of the test clubs will be compared using the TrackMan software.
During this phase we will determine from your swings the correct:
  • Length
  • Loft & Lie Angles
  • Total Weight
  • Swingweight/MOI
  • Shaft Flex, Bend Profile and Weight
  • Face Angle (on woods)
  • Clubhead Design
  • Grip Size & Material
  • Feel
  • Set Make Up
By determining the correct clubs for you, we will optimize
  • Ball Speed
  • Smash Factor
  • Launch Angle
  • Spin Rate
  • Maximum Height
  • Carry Distance
  • Total Distance
  • Shot Dispersion
  • Landing Angle

5. Equipment Recommendations

  • Discuss and analyze the results of the different test clubs
  • Talk about your set make up (Hybrids, irons, wedges & woods) in regard to the best combination for your swing
  • How many and what type of wedges are best for you
  • Should you play hybrids or high lofted fairway woods
  • Review the fitting results and recommendations
  • Answer any questions you may have
  • Discuss options for retro-fitting and modifying your existing clubs, or purchasing new equipment

6. Equipment Built or Altered

Equipment will then be built or altered to the recommended specifications. Equipment is built from the highest quality components by a professionally trained and certified clubmaker. The same person that does your fitting, builds your clubs. No corners are cut. I make sure the equipment is well built and to the exact specifications determined during the club fitting. I am so confident you will be so happy with your new clubs that I carry an exclusive guarantee. If the individual is not happy with the clubs fitted and built by Golfers Advantage, I will readjust the clubs, rebuild the clubs, or give the individual's money back. It is the individual's choice. I want my customers to understand they are getting custom fitted clubs, not custom made clubs.

7. Test Club

When building new irons, a test club will be built based on the fitting specifications. This gives you an opportunity to hit it and compare it to your current set, on the range and during actual play. (Try before you buy)
