At Fit2Score, golf club fitting is NOT a step in a process directed toward selling you new golf clubs. I start by evaluating the fit of your existing golf clubs to your swing and identify where you will get value for your club investment. My recommendation may include fitness training or swing coaching.
There are two approaches to club fitting, fit the swing or fit for swing development. I explain the pros and cons of equipment choices and let you make the decision of fitting your equipment to your swing, or selecting equipment directed toward swing improvement. You will be offered adjustments to your current equipment, recommendations for new golf clubs or custom made golf clubs. Custom made golf clubs, like a custom made suit, are the ultimate assurance your equipment will fit and improve your golf swing.
Golf is an outdoor sport, we watch the ball fly and adjust our swing based on what we see. Without the feedback of watching a ball fly, the golf club fitting process does not work for many golfers. It takes more time to custom fit golf clubs outdoors; the golf swing analysis launch monitor and video cameras must be set up each time. At times the weather does not cooperate. If you want your clubs fit in the same way a professional gets custom fit golf clubs, call us to schedule your golf club fitting outdoors.

Much of the fitting for golf clubs involves golf shaft fitting. Understanding the linear (EI) and radial (torque / GJ) properties of golf shafts is one of the most important elements in golf club fitting. The golf shaft is the ‘transmission’ of your swing engine, I designed and manufactured a golf shaft measuring instrument to understand golf shafts from the same perspective as a golf shaft designer. I also make uniform torque profile comparisons with a digital torque instrument. The shaft section of this site gives you a glimpse into the complex world of golf shaft design, golf shaft flex, golf shaft torque and golf shaft fitting.
The understanding of golf shafts is mired in historical terms and marketing jargon. I found it necessary to create a comprehensive knowledge base to compare golf shafts. My EI measuring machine and knowledge base is now used by many top club fitters and several shaft companies.
While many places now offer launch monitor golf club fitting. The art of golf club fitting is knowing how to interpret the huge matrix of launch monitor information.
Understanding the golf shaft, golf club head design, club weight and balance sets the professional fitter apart from the typical launch monitor operator. Golf club fitting is a blend of proper state of the art equipment, expertise and experience. While launch monitors and fitting carts have been available for years, the science of fitting is rapidly evolving. Selecting the right golf club fitting expert is how you will truly benefit from golf club fitting.
Understanding the golf swing is a keystone in golf club fitting. High speed sports motion capture became affordable in the last few years. Unfortunately, we see a lot of foolish images of bent shafts. Huge bends in the shaft image come from rolling camera shutters. With high frame rate video, properly used, we can see golf shafts load and unload. To capture an undistorted view of the golf club, the camera must be PERPENDICULAR to the swing plane, not in the conventional teaching position. The leading edge of club fitting combines knowledge the golf equipment and the biomechanics of the golf swing. Among my many certifications are Titleist Performance Institute Level 2 Golf Instructor and Titleist Golf Club Fitting Professional.
The Casio EX-F1 camera is unique, and unfortunatley, no longer made. While we wait for the next generations of global shutter USB 3.0 cameras, it remains the camera of choice for swing capture and fitting research video. With remote control of multiple cameras via USB and frame rates of 300, 600 and 1200 fps, the EX-F1 is a fitting tool used by some of the top fitters in the world.
