Club fitting 101: How to prepare for a fitting

Published

on

For many golfers, regardless of skill, a club fitting is a foreign experience. So, with that in mind, we have teamed up with Club Champion to break down the dos and don’ts of making sure you can be prepared for your next fitting.

Whether it’s for a single part of your bag or your whole set, being prepared will allow you to get the most from your fitting and allow you to enjoy the experience.

GolfWRX: When it comes to preparation, what should a golfer expect heading into their fitting?

Club Champion:

  • It’s very important to remember that any fitting is going to require you to hit a lot of balls, so plan accordingly. You will be making a lot more full swings than you do during a round of golf so beyond your normal routine, we don’t suggest you hit two jumbo buckets at the range the day before.
  • Be prepared to hit some clubs you might not have thought about trying before, either from a brand or set makeup perspective. You will have a lot of options available, so expect to branch out from clubs you already have in the bag if you’re looking for a true fitting. The best marketing does not always equal the best club for you.
  • Have a budget in mind. No one likes to talk about money, but it is imperative that your fitter understands your budget, so he/she can work within it.
  • Understand that custom/premium clubs take longer than a stock set. Hand-building your clubs to the tightest tolerances is a more meticulous process than purchasing clubs built by an assembly line, so understand that awesome things come to those who are willing to wait a bit longer.

GolfWRX: What should a golfer bring to their fitting from an equipment perspective?
Club Champion:
  • Even if you aren’t getting fit for a full set of clubs, you should bring the full bag, it’s nice to have access to everything for any testing and potential gapping.
  • We always welcome a golfer to bring their preferred golf ball, but it is not required.

GolfWRX: What should a golfer bring as far as items beyond just their equipment?

Club Champion:

  • A glove if you use one—It’s the one thing many golfers forget to bring.
  • Comfortable clothing and athletic shoes. We recommend golf shoes, but comfort and function are up to each golfer, and if that means sneakers, by all means, wear them.
  • Water and snacks. We do provide refreshments to customers, but everyone has their own preferences, and if you have a preferred “in-round” snack that is ideal.

GolfWRX: Leading up to their fitting is there anything you recommend a golfer doesn’t do?

Club Champion:

  • We never suggest anyone plan a fitting for a busy day or a day when they have a tight schedule. We want each golfer to feel relaxed and focused on their fitting.
  • Don’t get bogged down or overwhelmed by research and online reviews. The numbers during your fitting are ultimately going to be the deciding factor, and the most important decision about any club going into your bag should be yours.

GolfWRX: Is there any other specific advice for golfers that are preparing for a club fitting?

Club Champion:

  • Know your goals. “Game improvement” is great, but that means different things to different people. If you want more distance, make sure your fitter knows that. Tighter dispersion, fewer three-putts, whatever it is, make sure to communicate it to your fitter so they can help you achieve your specific goals.
  • Be ready to have your preconceived notions about fittings blown away. Modern fittings are about technology and data, and there is a lot of information to help you see results.
  • Last but not least, understand that you don’t have to buy new clubs. Generally, newer equipment is going to have a higher success rate, but at the end of the day, you get to make the call on budgets and what you’re looking to do. You can keep your clubheads and swap in new shafts. You can keep your entire set and just adjust small things like loft/lie. Performance is our number one priority, but we can pivot if you know you aren’t looking for a complete overhaul at the moment.
