Customized clubs reduce errors, increase the length and accuracy of shots, and can reduce average scores by as much as 5 strokes. When getting fitted for custom golf clubs there are several things you should take into account.

1. Clubheads

It is important to know the right angle your club head should be so that you can play your best golf game. The terms for this are lie and loft.
The lie of the club is the angle between the sole of the club and the shaft. If your club is tilted up or down too much then the face won’t be pointed in the right direction. Everyone swings differently and our custom club fitting can help figure out if you would benefit from a more upright angle or one that’s flatter.
The loft of the clubhead is what determines how far your shot will go. This is also determined by your individual swing and should be assessed and fitted to you specifically.

2. Shafts

When looking at the shaft you want to pay attention to the flexibility, weight and length of it. This affects your ability to hit long and on target.
The standard shaft length is designed for a 5’ 9” tall person. Not everyone is this height so we fit you based on your personal measurements. The shaft is measured using wrist-to-floor measurements.
As for the weight of the shaft, that should be tailored to the power of your swing. The lighter shafts increase swing speed and distance. The heavier shafts produce less backspin and lower ball trajectory.

3. Grips

The club’s grip may be the most unappreciated factor affecting a golfer’s performance. A grip with the wrong size, weight, or composition will increase tension and fatigue in the hands leading to less club control and impaired performance. A grip that is too thin, for example, can cause you to hook more shots. Likewise, a grip that is too thick may cause slicing.
