Before Buying Golf Clubs, Get Fit

If you are looking to improve your golf game, the first thing you must do before buying new golf clubs is get a professional club fitting.

There is a tremendous amount of technology that goes into the design and development of today’s golf equipment. And you can undoubtedly shave strokes off your game by upgrading your gear every few years. However, before you invest in the latest tech, you must schedule a club fitting. Today’s golf clubs can be customized in literally hundreds of different possible combinations. From grip size, to grip style, to lie angle, shaft flex and length, to amount of offset, head shape and more, the possibilities are limitless. How do you wade through all the choices? Luckily, you don’t need to stess if you work with a trained club-fitting professional.

Even with all the latest technology, ball flight is still at the heart and soul of golf equipment fitting. The reason leading manufacturers have designed and built their own test centers is because they know from years of experience that ball flight and feel are the confidence builders to making good golfers better golfers.

Many club fitters work on a golf simulator and that is okay but if you can get fit outside, on the driving range, then you can see and feel how the ball reacts as if it were on the golf course.  Using TrackMan or FlightScope in the fitting session will provide your fitter with excellent data to dial in your ideal club make-up.

The Haggin Oaks Golf Complex offers a unique club fitting experience with their Player Performance Studio. This indoors-outdoors club fitting studio opens up to the driving range. You enjoy the benefits of hitting on the driving range to see true ball flights while still covered and protected from the elements. The Player Performance Studio houses all the fitting components from all the major brands and the three fitting studio bays boast the latest in technology with TrackMan. You can see the ball flight of your ball on large screen TVs as you work with your trained club fitting professional to dial you into the proper gear.

Don’t simply take our word for it. Check out this recent 5 star review from Steven Porter:

First club fitting ever at this place after 14 years of avid golfing! PGA tour ex pro Steve Olsen was my fitter and he was everything I hoped for. Knowledgeable enough to answer all of my questions about every dynamic of the irons I was testing, and great customer service. Ended up getting a new set of P730’s please try this place out for a fitting and set up an appointment with Steve :)
