Custom fitting golf clubs involves several easy measurements and a quick self-assessment of your game. You will see many fitting methods out there in the golf universe, but most of them center around the same pieces of information. This method is simple, accurate, and effective. To custom fit your golf clubs, you need to know:
•Your gender (male or female)
•Your height in your stockings or socks
•The distance from your wrist (where it bends) to the floor (without shoes)
•Your handicap or skill level
•How fast you swing a golf club
•What club you use at the 150 yard marker
Gender is used to put you into the correct fitting scale. The golf industry uses different definitions of “standard length” for men and women.
Your height and the distance in inches from your wrist to the floor are used together to determine the length of golf club that is appropriate for you. The starting point for club length can vary up to 3 1/2” ranging from ladies to mens plus 1 1/2”. A tall person with long arms can very easily require shorter clubs than an average height person with short arms. About 80% of golfers are Standard length.
Your age, handicap (if you happen to have one), self-assessed skill level, estimated golf swing speed and club you use at the 150 yard marker are all combined to determined the shaft flex that is appropriate for you.
