Custom Fit Golf Clubs For You
Are you an avid golfer, or are you just getting into the sport and loving it? No matter the case, our golf professionals at Totally Driven are here to help you find the perfect golf clubs for your swing pattern. But what about your height? Doesn’t that play a factor in the length of your golf clubs? While it does, to a certain extent, it does not matter as much as some people may believe. When you come to our team, we will take all of the necessary measurements and conduct the needed tests to find the perfect clubs for your golf game. Here, our golf professionals will discuss what you need to consider when purchasing new golf clubs and how we can help you find the clubs to optimize your game.
So, How Much Does Height Matter?
Somewhat surprisingly, the height of each individual golfer does not play into the length of club shaft as much as you may think. The factor that is most important in this process is your golf stance and how far that puts your wrists from the floor. Believe it or not, this is by far one of the most important measurements golf fitters take into account. But why is that more important than your height?
All serious golfers incorporate the same routine for every shot. Golf is a game of repetition, and those who take the game seriously work until they have the same consistent swing every time they hit the course. While every golfer alters their swing for certain instances, the chances are that your wrists are still going to end up being the same distance from the ground as they are when you take a normal swing.
Because golf is a game of repetition and your swing should not vary in most circumstances, your stance will be the same. It doesn’t matter how tall you are if you have a deeper crouch in your swing because your wrists will then be closer to the ground, which means you need slightly shorter clubs. Additionally, if you are smaller in stature, but stand more straight-up in your golf stance than someone who is taller than you, the distance from your wrists to the floor will be greater, which means you might need longer clubs.
Arm length and wrist to floor length are what truly determines how long the shaft of your golf clubs should be. When you get your golf clubs fitted, the team who takes you through the fitting process should take into account your arm length, as well as how far your wrist is from the floor when you are in your stance. All of these facts hold true for shorter golfers as well. Your height is not the only thing taken into account when it comes to your clubs’ shaft length. We measure from your wrist to the floor, as well, to ensure you get the clubs that are best for you.
How Do We Take That Into Account?
At Totally Driven, we use state-of-the-art technology and golf professionals to help you find the optimal fit for your golf clubs. Whether you are looking to have a single club fitted or your entire bag, we will get the measurements needed to determine every aspect of your clubs. When you come to our facility for your scheduled fitting, we will ask you to bring your current clubs with you, so we can make comparisons as we go, and you can tell us how each one feels in regards to your swing. From there, we will put you in our swing lab and begin analyzing every angle of your swing. In our lab, we use the state-of-the-art technologies from Trackman and Sam PuttLab to analyze every angle of your different swings, so we can recommend the best club for you.
To start the golf fitting process, we put you in the lab to take the necessary measurements, before using our technologies to get measurements and data points from your current clubs. Some of these data points and measurements include:
● Launch Angle
● Club Path
● Swing Speed
● Spin Rate
● Smash Factor
● And more
Once we have these factors taken into account, we will use our tools to produce suggested sizes and measurements for every aspect of your clubs. Once this is done, we will go to our workshop to put together prototypes and have you test them using the same technologies. If they are an optimal fit for you and the data, we can order them for you. To learn more or schedule a golf club fitting, contact us today.
