Ready to shop for new golf clubs? Whether this is a replacement set or your very first, it's important to find the perfect fit. Golf club fitting is the way to do it. Length, weight, and grip size are just a few of things that are taken into consideration when you get a golf club fitting. You can fix a slice, correct a hook, or just have a more comfortable game, all with a custom golf club fitting.
The first thing that will be considered at your golf club fitting is grip size. Your personal grip size depends on many things. The first thing is, of course, your hand size. But grip size can also be used to correct parts of your game, such as a slice. A slightly different grip size than you are used to might be all the difference in your golf game.
Another thing that will be taken into consideration at your golf club fitting is length. The length of your golf clubs is very important considering your unique dimensions. The measurements that will affect your personalized club length are height, arm length, and how much you bend at the knees when you swing. The perfect length for you will help you to not only have a better swing, but a safer one as well.
In addition to grip size and club length, your golf club fitting will focus on customized shafts. The object is to determine the right shaft flex for you. The shaft of your clubs bends as forces are applied to it, therefore your shaft flex depends on what type of swing you have-fast, slow, smooth, or jerky. There are five ratings of shaft flex. These rations are extra stiff, stiff, regular, senior and ladies. Finding the right shaft flex to keep your shots aligned is, as you can imagine, quite the science, and a very important part of golf club fitting.
If you are looking for more affordable golf equipment, you might think you can't get a professional golf club fitting. But just because you don’t have a lot of cash to spare doesn't mean you have to settle for one-size-fits-all clubs. Check around your area for quality stores that offer discount golf clubs and find out if they offer golf club fittings. Another option is to keep your eyes peeled for seasonal sales and deals. You don't have to be rich to have a great golf game.
