Custom Clubs Frequently Asked Questions
should I have my equipment properly custom fit by a qualified clubmaker?
no player will ever play his best golf with clubs that have not
been fitted properly to his swing. This applies to the 35 handicap
just as much as the Tour Pro.
I get a proper fitting in some big retail golf store?
depends on what your idea of a proper fitting is. If your idea
of a proper fitting is hitting in stock demo's into a net is
good enough, then the answer is yes.
your idea of a proper fitting is being dynamically tested
outdoors on a launch monitor for as many of variables in golf
equipment as possible, then we offer the best solution for your
have been to just about every big retail store there is, and none of their fitting systems compare to the level of detail
that a professional clubmaker like myself can achieve. Besides,
do you think the salesman doing the fitting is as educated and
knowledgeable as a Certified Club Fitter, who has worked out on
the PGA TOUR, and is a Clubmaker of the Year? Probably
Can I play just as well with
clubs bought "off the rack"?
not. Each golfer has different physical swing characteristics
that may be so varied that the chances of an "off the
rack" set of clubs fitting as well as they should are very
slim indeed. Your clubs need to be fitted to your individual
swing. This means being fitted for club length, lie angle, shaft
type and flex, grip type and size. It also means using new
fitting and assembly techniques such as laser computer swing
analysis, launch condition fitting, proper spine alignment, and
shaft profiling and orientation.

Being properly fit for your clubs will most likely be the best
thing you can do for your game, especially a beginning player. You can't learn the game playing

dynamic fittings, you can be assured you are getting clubs
properly fit for your swing.
custom fit clubs expensive?
fit clubs are not expensive when compared to the major OEM's. In addition,
I offer a level of personal service that no OEM can match. I use

that are properly fitted for length, lie and loft angles, shaft
type and flex, and grip size and type will assure you of playing
the best equipment available for you. Clubs that are too long or
too short lead to inconsistent contact (fat or thin). If the clubs
lie angle is wrong, shots will miss their target either right or
left. A shaft that is too light will be hard to control, too
heavy and distance will suffer. A shaft that is too stiff will
not load and unload its energy properly. A shaft that is too
flexible will be hard to hit accurately. Grip sizing is
important because the grip is your only contact with the club.
Grips that are too big or small will feel uncomfortable and may
lead to difficulty controlling the club.
would rather save money than buy golf equipment that will help
my game. I would rather be fitted by a salesman than a golf
equipment professional. I would rather help (or hurt) my game
through trial and error rather than finally making an investment in
properly fitted golf equipment. What should I do?
