CUSTOM FITTING CENTRE

 

SMART GOLF GEAR FITTING CENTRE

Here at smart golf gear we are able to offer customers a first class golf club fitting experience. The club fitting is carried out by one of our four PGA professionals at our state of the art custom fit centre in Yorkshire, based at the Oaks Golf Club, near York. 

Opening our doors in August 2019 the smart golf gear fitting centre is the perfect place to come and get fitted up for your new set of golf clubs. We offer a full range of Ping, Callaway and Taylor Made club fitting equipment with a huge variety of heads, shafts and grips in mens, ladies,right hand and left hand. We offer fittings for drivers, fairway woods, utility clubs, irons, wedges and putters. 

All club fitting is carried out using ball flight and video analysis. The fitting centre is kitted out with the most up to date FlightScope launch monitors allowing our team of fitters to monitor all aspects of your ball flight including launch angle, spin rate and length of carry to name just a few. From these figures our team are able to pinpoint the perfect custom fit clubs for each individual, enabling our customers to leave the fitting knowing which clubs to order for maximum length and control.

Customers can decide whether they would rather get fitted on an indoor simulator  hitting balls into a screen and watching their ball flight on a projected image or hitting out onto the driving range allowing the customer to see their true ball flight. 

For putter fittings, one of our professional fitters Lysa is able to offer SAM putting lab technology which is used by the tour players. This tracks your putter stroke and arc and tracks how the ball rolls off the putter face. For more information on this or to enquire about using the SAM putter lab call us on 01757288007. Putter fittings can be carried out on our indoor putting studio or on our outdoor putting green.

CUSTOM FIT PROCESS

1. The Interview

Fitting begins with your fitter obtaining important information. Questions help the fitter identify your ball-flight tendencies, equipment specifications, your likes and dislikes about your current set, and your needs and preferences from new equipment. The dialogue will continue throughout the fitting to ensure that your expectations are being met every step of the way

2. Static Fitting

After the initial interview, fittings continue with the fitter determining your initial club specifications based on your preferences, needs and ability. For drivers, fairways and hybrids, you'll discuss the general performance characteristics of different models, lofts and shafts. For an iron fitting, your height and wrist-to-floor measurement are taken to help calculate your static iron colour code (lie angle) and shaft length, and your hand dimensions are used to calculate your static grip colour code, or grip size. 

3. Dynamic Swing Test

For an iron fitting, you will hit a few golf balls from an impact board with special tape on the sole of the club. When the club hits the board, it will leave a mark on the tape that helps the fitter better understand how your setup, posture, and swing affect the clubhead’s position at impact. The fitter then makes adjustments to arrive at your colour code. 
For drivers, fairway woods and hybrids, face tape or spray is applied to the face and the impact marks are analysed for consistency to determine the optimal shaft length. 

4. Ball-Flight Analysis

We offer full ball-flight analysis when fitting all clubs from the driver through the wedges. Through using a launch monitor the fitter is able to track and analyse the ball-flight, looking at figures such as launch angle, spin rate and carry. The fitter will utilise a variety of clubs with slightly different specifications to isolate each fitting variable. This process helps determine the combination of model, loft, lie, shaft length and flex, and grip that gives you the best opportunity to achieve your optimal ball flight.
