Am I good enough to get fit?
One of the biggest misunderstandings is that high handicappers or novice players are not yet good enough to fit. Especially with these players it is important that the material fits the swing or player better than with a lower handicapper who can adapt a little easier.
The higher handicapper will be able to see rapid improvement with well-fit clubs compared to his existing equipment.
We are all unique and find it very normal for many things around us, such as shoes. At golf clubs we notice that people quickly think: "I have to adapt to the clubs" or "this is a good or expensive brand, that will be good." The assumption that the flex of the shaft is always what it says is unfortunately not valid. Here we experience very large differences that are, for example, also comparable to clothing. A size M in the US will certainly be different than the same size from Italy. Especially since we are dealing with 14 clubs in the golf bag, it is important to know the right flex and to match it for a homogeneous feeling.
The wrong clubs, shafts and simple things like the grips and, for example, the balance of the golf club can ensure that this beautiful sport will not become easier or more consistent. By matching the correct fitting to the individual swing and thus getting the clubs built into the bag, you are guaranteed to have more fun in your game.
We can supply both. If you want to choose to take ready-made stock with you, that is of course possible and we will advise on this.
Of course, our great added value is to indicate the interests of customization and then deliver it accordingly. By means of an advice / conversation you may come to very logical explanations why certain things are needed to take this into account, but someone has to tell you.
Every store and Pro's "fit" in his or her way, but almost always the result will result in an order from the factory, so you get standard clubs that may be slightly longer / shorter and possibly bent upright or flat. Here at Golf Etc. all clubs are / can be assembled custom build with the greatest care to the necessary specifications. We are therefore pleased with the exclusive collaboration of a number of major well-known brands, in which we are separate component dealers such as Callaway, Srixon, Cleveland, Cobra TaylorMade and Mizuno.
By means of the right club fitting, we can help to find clubs that fit the player as consistently as possible and are also coordinated to be a unit as a set. We all have our good and unfortunately also bad days, but our swing characteristics don't change so dramatically in general.
It is a quest to find the right combination for the player of the necessary dose of forgiveness of the head, corresponding loft and lie and the right shaft.
Golf is very easy to summarize: how good are your bad shots?
For a complete fitting we spend about 3 hours together. After measuring the current material, after an intake interview with the driver, we will collect the iron 6 data with the Trackman, which we will then process in our unique fitting system. From there we will see to what extent the existing material still fits and can be adjusted or we will look for better performing new material.
We have many brands and options to test, from the well-known brands to perhaps lesser-known hidden gems.
For a full fitting, please bring the entire set of clubs that you are playing with now - even clubs that you may have taken out because they do not like them. In addition, the golf shoes, glove and it is practical to put on comfortable clothing. Do not forget the ball that you always play because here we can also give the necessary advice.
After a fitting session, we came to a conclusion which choice of material will work best. We will then make a suitable offer and send it by email. After the choice has been made, we will assemble the desired clubs here in our own workshop and will contact you immediately when they are ready.
Depending on the order - something that we will also indicate in the quotation - this will usually be around two weeks.
We have a very wide range of clubs, shafts, and grips which can be found largely on the website under the heading: GOLFSHOP. Also in the shafts we have a very wide range in various flexes from Ladies to X Stiff, but there is a certain question or choice of club and / or shaft and this is not listed on the site, give us a call and we can give an answer to make sure it can be tested here.
You are always welcome in our shop and to test goldfinches usually no appointment is necessary to make. To test clubs in our hitting room or for a fitting it is necessary to make an appointment (+31 (0) 40 20 30 489) so that we can give all the time to the right advice.
That depends on what we can still adjust. E.g. placement of the shaft, swing weight (balance factor) of the club proper loft and lie and grip (thickness) are options that we can usually adjust. It is therefore better to have a good fit before the purchase of clubs takes place so that the guesswork or just assuming that what it pretends to be on the label is correct. We can of course provide existing clubs with new shafts to more optimal or the necessary specifications, but one day the advice may be to say goodbye to the old clubs and go for better fitting new ones. We are happy to give you honest advice.
For a large number of golfers, a fitting will take some getting used to, but this has a number of advantages over a driving range outside and you may notice that almost all good fitters choose an indoor range.
It is true that you may not immediately see the full ball flight, but a good fitter will not be (too) busy with the swing - there you have the Pros for, but just with fitting material to the player.
If you also see your first balls leave to the left during a fitting outside, for example, just like any player you will quickly adjust in terms of technique and you put yourself at the service of the material instead of the other way around and the spontaneity of the swing is also away quickly.
Another reason is that during the fitting we are going to use the actual ball that one would use during a normal round and we are not going to use a usually reasonably worn driving range or 80% ball that a Trackman or similar has to calculate. leave.
Furthermore, an inner fitting will always take place at the same temperature for a fair comparison whether you come in the summer or the middle of winter.
