Below you will find Questions and Answers which will answer many
questions you may have regarding Custom Fitting and Custom Built
Golf Clubs. If your question has not been answered feel free to
contact us with your question and we will be happy to
reply to your concerns.
Q. Who should be Custom Fit for clubs?
A. All golfers should be Custom Fit for their clubs from
the professional, Low, Mid, High Handicap to
the beginner who is just taking up this wonderful game.
Q. Why should I get Custom Fit?
A. You are unique, your height, weight, age, sex, arm
length, hand size, swing characteristics,
transition from back swing to down swing, where
you release your wrist cock, are you casting, your
posture, your tempo, swing path and athletic
ability all play an important part in what make up of
clubs are best for you. The big companies build
their off the rack clubs to one size fits all and
advertise they will custom build clubs so they
have a sales person in the store tell you what you
need without a complete fitting by a Professional
who has been trained and Certified to fit you.
What happens is you end up with clubs you
can't hit so you blame it on your swing and ability
which causes many golfers to play golf for years
and never improve NO matter how hard they try.
If Custom Fit Custom Built clubs are good enough
for the Pros, why shouldn't they be good enough
for you along with all the benefits they offer?
Q. What benefit is there in using a video of my swing?
A. Videoing your swing will tell us a lot about you.
We can show you exactly what you are doing during
your swing, starting with how you address the ball,
posture, hand position, head position at address and
during your swing, how you start your back swing, how much you turn and the position of the club at the top of
your swing. From the top we can see exactly where
you start to load the shaft, how aggressive your transition is from the top of your back swing into your down swing. When you release your wrists, 10, 9, 8, 7 o'clock, as the
club head descends to the ball. Your position at impact,
is your weight on your left foot, what is the position
of your leading hand, your hips, your head and your
This will help in the selection of the proper torque in the
shaft needed, and any and all swing faults you may
have so we put you into the right equipment to improve
Q. Are Custom Club heads as good as Name Brand?
A. Quality Proprietary club heads as we use are
as good, if not better than, Name Brand. Do not
confuse our heads with Knock Off or Look Alike
heads you see advertised. Large golf companies
(OEMs) spend hundreds of thousands of dollars
to promote their clubs, including paying Touring
Professionals to use their clubs which they have
Custom Built for each Pro playing them.
We Custom Clubfitter/Clubmakers do not have
the resources to advertise this way so our best
advertisement is the Quality of our products and
satisfied customers who tell their friends.
Q. Are the shafts you use the same as Name Brand
A. NO they are not, shafts used in Name Brand clubs
are made to the club company specifications. We have
a choice to pick the exact shaft you need and of the
Q. What can I expect when I get Custom Fit?
A. At our shop you will sit down with a Custom
Fitter who will ask you about your game, your goals
and problems you are having. You will fill out a
Fitting Form, a measurement from wrist to floor
is done, assessment of grip size you will need,
your present clubs will be inspected and tested
for Swingweight, Frequency (flex), Length, Grip
Size, Grip Type & Weight, Over all Weight.
Upon completion you will go out to our private driving
range where you will be asked to hit balls with your
present equipment while your posture, swing
characteristics, and ball flight are analysed
with the aid of a Launch Monitor. The data will be
analysed in our computer Fitting System. You will be
asked to hit several demo clubs to determine what
combination is best for you. The questions
answered are: your present clubs too long or too
short, too light or too heavy, sole of club head have
too much bounce or not enough, too stiff or too
flexible, lie angle too upright or too flat or just right,
swingweight (MOI) too heavy causing you to hit
the ball near the heal causing the dreaded "shank"
or near the toe costing you distance and control?
With a driver we add face angle, loft and face offset.
Club type over all weight, length, type of shaft and
length, the right loft, lie, torque, frequency (flex) and MOI.
Q. When I have completed a fitting how will I know
the clubs will work for me?
A. Once we have found a club head and shaft
combination, we build you a prototype of the
club you will be getting which we have you hit.
Weight is added to the head until you are hitting the
ball flush in the center of the club face, now we know
what MOI to make your clubs.
Now the club will feel good to you and you know
it is a perfect fit.
Q. What if I have a Physical Disability?
A. We work with many golfers with many different
Physical Challenges and have found many ways
to help them back to the golf course. It is so
gratifying to help golfers over come physical
problems and play golf again.
Q. Can you help my slice with my driver?
A. Yes we can. The data gathered from the launch
monitor will indicate the club face angle at impact,
which may be caused by your swing, the shaft and
the club head. We have the ability to put you into
the right shaft, increase lie angle, close the club face
and adjust the MOI. Depending on your present driver,
one or all may be required to help
you hit the ball straight.
Q. Are your clubs guaranteed?
A. Yes Our clubs are guaranteed under normal
playing for as long as you own them, does
not cover damage due to an accident or willful
or willful damage.F
