Golfers pay for the “right” to get fitted for their clubs, whether they take advantage of that right or not. Getting the right 14 clubs in your bag is actually worth the time and, in some cases, expense so you only have to make one swing. And it can start with one element at a time.
An excellent analysis of equipment optimization was presented in the February 28, 2011 issue of Golf World. Five key areas were identified that a golfer can focus on for accomplishing this goal:
1. The Launch Monitor: Adjustable clubs (swappable heads and shafts) have given golf-fitters like Klees Golf Shop many of the same capabilities as what the tour vans offer the pros. The launch monitor can help you see what happens with a variety of shafts, lofts and ball types. What is “optimum” is the combination of these elements that gives you the best results for the swing you use most of the time.
