  • How long does a fitting session take?
    A custom fitting session can take anywhere from 15 minutes to 2 hours, depending on the number and type of clubs you are being fit for. When scheduling, discuss what you want and we’ll let you know how much time to allocate for your fitting.

  • What happens in a custom fitting session?
    In sessions for clubs other than putters, you’ll test a variety of head styles and shaft flexes from different manufacturers, using face tape to indicate your points of impact for length and consistency of hit. We use the FlightScope launch monitor to compare individual club performance, calculate ball speed, launch angles, backspin rates and verify optimal ball flight based on what the golfer sees and feels, and what we see in determining the clubs with optimal performance. For putters, we’ll measure your natural set-up to determine length and hosel styles that will work with your stance. You’ll test putters while we measure results using the TOMI system and then once everything is dialed in, you’ll roll putts on our real-grass putting green to finalize a selection. We’ll also fit you into the proper grip for your putter to ensure no unnecessary hand tension is caused by the grip.

Golf Swing Myths

  • Head still / Head down
    The head moves slightly with the pivot of the swing but not up or down. It should never be ahead of the ball at impact. “Keep your head down” is bad advice because this tends to block the shoulder turn.

  • Toe of the club points up at the halfway-back position
    Use the clubface leading edge angle as a checkpoint as the toe of a club can be misleading with its design. In reality, the clubface angle should be somewhere near parallel to the spine angle. When the clubface angle is pointing straight up, it means that the hands have rotated more than necessary.

  • Hit with Your Legs / Hit the Ball with the Upper Body
    The legs should provide support and resistance for the torso’s and upper-body’s winding and unwinding. The real key to power in the golf swing is the core – the weight shift and rotation.

  • Weight should be on the Heels at Address
    Truth is, the weight should be on the balls of your feet, just like all athletic movements. During the backswing, the weight shifts into the trailing leg’s heel as the backswing loads the club in preparation for the downswing.
