I believe that being properly fit for your equipment is as vital to your success as is receiving one-on-one instruction.
Golfers don’t typically buy equipment every year; therefore, my process of fitting clubs is somewhat deliberate, thus ensuring that the equipment you are buying is perfect for your swing and body type. I also believe that the instructor is the best person to fit their student’s equipment. I mean, who knows their student’s flaws better than their own instructor?
My fitting process starts with correctly fitting the lie, length, shaft flex and type, grip and clubhead design of a set of irons. Next, I will fit the driver. Once the new equipment is received I will meet with the student again to match wedge distances and fit hybrids and fairway woods between their longest iron and driver. This process eliminates redundancies and makes sure the gaps between each club are appropriate.
