Custom Golf Club Fitting
Custom fit equipment will in most every case improve a player’s game. Properly fit quality equipment along with professional instruction and practice are the basic steps to game improvement. “You wouldn’t buy a suit off the rack without trying it on. Nor does it make sense to invest in new golf equipment without being professionally custom fit.” Steve Kirkpatrick, PGA Professional.
The purpose of a clubfitting is twofold. It gives the professional the opportunity to compare ball flight using a variety of head designs, shafts, lengths and lie angles to produce optimum control, launch angle and distance. At the same time the customer will experience the difference between custom fit equipment and their current clubs.
Steve began fitting custom clubs in 1989. In 2013 Steve was named one of the “World’s Top 100 Clubfitters” by KZG. Read full press release here. He is a certified clubfitter for Ping, Callaway, Taylor Made and Mizuno. Golf Rx was named to the Golf Digest 2017 Top 100 Clubfitters List as a Certified Fitting Facility.
During a club fitting Steve will determine the proper length, shaft type and flex, lie angle of the irons, loft of driver, grip type and size and set make up. The custom specifications are based on each player’s unique size and swing characteristics.
Custom fit clubs are often less expensive than off the rack sets because a player is only paying for the clubs he or she wants or needs. A custom fitting session usually takes about 45 minutes and clubs can be ordered the same day.
The cost for a complete custom fitting is $125.00. If you purchase your custom clubs at Golf Rx the fitting fee will be applied to the purchase price. To schedule your club fitting with Steve call Golf Rx at (615) 288-4539.
