Need a new putter, driver, iron, wood, hybrid or full set of clubs?

Should you walk in and buy a golf club straight off the floor?

 

"That depends if you want the best opportunity to enjoy or improve your golf or not. Gone are the days where the same specs are sold to each and every person. Golf equipment is no longer a self-shoppable product.” Graeme says. "Custom-fit clubs will enhance every golfer’s game."

 

Your equipment can make a much bigger difference than you think. Beyond good technique and regular practice, the keys to greater consistency and success on the course lie with a proper fitting. 

 

One myth about clubfitting is get fit once, and use those specs for life. That thinking is off-base according to Graeme. “Elite players have fittings and equipment checks all the time,” he says. “If the general club golfer plays on a rough track, is tweaking their swing or being coached, a spot check every six to twelve months is fine. If the golfer is simply playing without making changes, a clubfitting is likely every three to five years as their set reaches its 4 to 5 year lifespan.”

A fitting is complimentary with the prospect of a future purchase!

A quality fit is only as good as the one building the clubs. Graeme Trew has been at this gig for over 35 years and voted one of The World’s Top 100 Professional Club Fitters every year since 2011. The Top 100 list is designed to help golfers find legitimate, highly skilled fitters and precise builders who have outstanding reputations and integrity

As a PGA Australia and International Professional Association of ClubFitters (IPAC) member, Graeme regularly attends professional development programs and seminars to maintain Master Club Fitter and Builder status. He is dedicated to the goals of both associations and helping golf enthusiasts play better golf.

 

Graeme's work is 100% guaranteed. He promotes the highest standards of skill, integrity and passion for his profession, putting “performance” before “profits”. The rush he gets out of doing a job exactly right delivers the perfect combination of clubhead, shaft and grip for each client's unique needs.

Regardless of your skill level, every golfer will benefit from a custom golf club fitting:

  • Option to book for a specific club fitting, a partial set or a full set of golf clubs (drivers, irons, hybrids, fairway woods, wedges and putters);

  • State-of-the-art FlightScope launch monitor swing and ball measurement system;

  • Technical feedback about club head speed, swing path, angle of attack, launch angle and ball speed;

  • OptiFit technology – the ultimate in interchangeable head, weights and shaft combinations; and

  • iPING 2.0 Putting App putter fitting, which measures five putting stroke key performance indicators.

  1. Download, complete and submit the Club Fitting Consultation Form.

  2. Email the completed form to improvemygolf@outlook.com or bring it along with you.

  3. Also bring your equipment, particularly your favorite club, which serves as a fitting benchmark - often this is a 7 iron, which many people are comfortable using and flight discrepancies from incorrect lie angles are easy to see; 

  4. Go into a custom fitting with an open mind, prepared to make a performance-based decision. This way you will end up with the best equipment for you and your game.

 

Graeme will refer to information within the form and ask additional questions about your game in terms of relative strengths, weaknesses, your handicap (if you have one) and current goals. He will evaluate your golfing needs by honing in on what it is you’re trying to achieve and what needs to occur to get you there. Ultimately, he aims to build equipment that is perfectly matched to your physique, swing, goals and game strategy. 

 

In the fitting process you will see the ball flight, where it lands and how far it rolls. This is critical in choosing equipment that delivers your best results. The FlightScope launch monitor will analyse technical aspects of your swing including ball speed, carry, total distance, and launch angles of each shot, to determine your correct:

  • lie angle;

  • shaft flex and material;

  • head design;

  • grip type and thickness;

  • club loft; and 

  • set makeup.

Fifty per cent of the game is played from less than 100 metres in and this is where most people have the most trouble, so its very important to get fitted for wedges.

 

Nine out of 10 golfers don’t use enough bounce with their wedges. (That’s the angle formed by the sole, the leading edge and the ground.) Incorrect distance gapping between wedges is where a lot of amateurs come unstuck. We start by evaluating how far the ball travels using a 9-iron. We then set up lofts that provide very consistent and even gaps to your highest lofted sand wedge. Think of all the short shots you play on to a green – you’ll want to hit partial shots, some from the rough, some from the bunkers. We explore which bounce and grind will help you achieve the short-game shots you want and that varies for every swing.

 

After the fitting is conducted, if the specs are not available for your unique swing and stroke from stock on hand, a custom order will be placed with a premium or niche brand, including PING, KZG or Callaway.

 

Use the Custom Fitting Checklist, an excerpt from Tom Wishon’s award winning book, 12 Myths That Could Wreck Your Golf Game. Tick each statement that applies to a previous or future club fitting experience. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In most cases Graeme fits people for clubs who have swung the same way for many years and have no desire to change their technique. Graeme will do his best to optimise the fit with your current technique. Some level of instruction is a vital component of the fitting process as the FlightScope data will identify undesirable swing tendencies. If it is better for you to postpone the club fitting and have a lesson to establish a more ideal club delivery, Graeme will recommend this approach.

Here are some warning signs that you’re not getting a proper fitting:

1. The fitter doesn't explain the process.

You need to know why you were fitted the way you were and walk away from the experiencing understanding more about the way you play and your natural tendencies.

2. The fitter doesn't ask enough questions

You need to discuss your goals, game and your equipment. How can you track improvement without a baseline measurement?

3. The fitter doesn't use the latest tools 

Launch monitors, video tracking and fitting systems such as shaft frequency analyser, lie and loft machine etc. Feel is important, but an accurate technical analysis is critical. Ask the fitter about their equipment. Get them to show you what they are looking for in the adjustments they recommend.

4. The fitter doesn't offer enough choice

You need what’s best for your game, not what’s best for your game limited to the fitter’s stock levels.

How to avoid a bad club fitting?

PING

The iPING 2.0 Putting App ensures you experience a tour-level putter fitting, which measures and analyses five putting stroke key performance indicators:

  • closing angle;

  • impact angle;

  • tempo;

  • lie angle;

  • shaft lean

These stroke metrics, combined with detailed input from you about your putting are analysed. The fitting algorithm identifies your Fit for Stroke style and recommends the proper stroke type, length, loft, lie and weight for a PING putter. PING’s reputation as the club-fitting leader has been earned through decades of research and experience in the field. PING workmanship is second to none. The price you pay when you invest in PING equipment is justified by the exceptionally high quality build, guarantee and ongoing service you will receive as you build on your collection. 

 

KZG

Purchasing KZG equipment, following a no stone unturned KZG fitting will cost you about the same price as you would pay for a decent off-the-shelf set of clubs, for which you will pay extra to have them adjusted and still find they aren't quite right for you. The difference is that KZG clubs are only available for purchase following a custom fit by a KZG authorized fitter and the clubs are built to exceptionally tight tolerances. KZG’s detail-oriented process is one other companies would be wise to model and as the #1 Custom ProLine Equipment Company™ you know your KZG set is going to perform.

Callaway

 

Every golf club Callaway produces has a single goal in mind – help players enjoy the game through more consistent ball striking and forgiveness. 

So don't buy off-the-shelf equipment only to have them adjusted and still not suit your needs. You'll ultimately pay much more than the mass produced and sometimes poorly balanced equipment is worth.
