Recently, more people have had their golf clubs custom fitted. This is because having them designed perfectly for a player enhances his or her skill. It is effectively altered in relation to that person’s unique playing style. In addition, one of the best things about it is that the adjustments can be made to the existing instruments a player has.
The height and build of a player are taken into consideration in addition to individual swing styles. These make up the details of that custom fitting. This has been done by professional players for several years already. Manufacturers of these instruments have also improved the products sold to the rest of the public. Although this has aided players, no generalized instrument can completely deal with the needs of any specific player.
Many specialist stores, fitting centers and pro shops are able to have instruments custom fitted. All that needs to happen is that the customer needs to hit a few balls while a computer evaluates the swings. This computer is known as a launch monitor.
Once the customer has completed this process, the launch monitor will show its findings. These findings are an analysis of the customer’s swing style. It shows suggestions regarding how that person’s instruments need to be modified to best suit the swing style, even detailing the necessary angle adjustments. All in all, this whole process takes less than half an hour.
Depending on what the player’s strengths, swing style, and weaknesses are, the launch monitor also shows what fits best. This effectively shows which instruments to choose if the player buys more in the future.
Having one’s own golf clubs custom fitted will usually cost a small fee. This price is not static, however. In addition, if the fitting is done on new clubs, there is often no additional fee. The fitting is then considered part of the purchase.
