Club Fitting

 

 

"When should I get fitted"? The simple answer is before you hit a golf ball. Once you start play golf with the wrong size clubs, your muscles start remembering to swing that way, (Muscle Memory). Now you try to correct the bad ball flight caused by ill fitted clubs, which will frustrate you even more. A Beginner or high handicap golfer will have a greater impact on lowering their scores from a custom club fitting than a scratch player will have. Once you have properly fitted clubs you will need to practice to reverse the effects of the muscle memory. If you haven't purchased any clubs yet, or want a new set of clubs, we can fit a set to you in your price range. If you have a set of clubs we can retro-fit them to you.

This Custom Club Fitting takes about 1-1 1/2 hours. If you purchase a set of clubs, a second fitting will be needed, which is included in this price, to check all the clubs not just to make sure they feel great, but to also give you carry and total distance of each club, to insure you walk away with clubs that will give you a real game improvment. My services don't stop a the exit. Some clubs may need adjustments after a year of play, and some don't. If they do, I will adjust them back to your specs at no charge. Try that at any golf store.

"When should I take Lessons"? Once again, before you start hitting the ball, but who does that? Everyone just goes out buys a set of clubs and learns the wrong swing habits. Now the golf instructor (Seth Dichard Golf School) has to break those habits through lessons. The easiest way to learn to play golf is to take a group lesson, and then pratice 3 times as much as you play golf. Then take a privite lesson. Practice, Practice, Practice, and play some golf. If you want to learn to hate golf in about 3 years, just go out and buy the longest length driver you can and the most expense golf set and then just go play golf. Unless you are really gifted, in about 3 years, those clubs you spent so much money on will be in the stroage closet collecting dust. But if you really want to enjoy golf, then get custom club fitted and take lessons. You will have a smile on your face everytime the ball drops in the hole!
