Pro-fitted Fitting and Building Practices
Benefit the Golfer
Most golfers want to hit it longer, straighter and more consistently.
Many also want better feel and a different trajectory.
To reach these goals, golfers need clubs that are professionally fit to
their build and golf swing. That's what Tee Time's Bill Kelly and Bob
Dugan do for a living.
Using a prescribed set of fitting and assembly
procedures, Bill and Bob can help golfers reach their
goals. They start with an interview of the golfer to determine each person's
desires in order of importance. Next, they inspect the golfer's current
set for length, loft, lie, and wear. Wear patterns often indicate areas
for the fitter's focus during ball striking. Static measurements
of the golfer are made and become a starting point for length and grip
The ball striking process is next. To achieve the best distance,
direction, consistency, feel, and trajectory for
the golfer, he or she hits test clubs of different
loft, length, shaft weight, flex, bend profile, head-weight,
lie angle, and head shift. Bill and Bob use a launch monitor to record
information including: swing speed, ball speed, launch angle, carry distance
and direction. Swing tempo and wrist hinge release are also measured.
Through a careful process of elimination, certain configurations of shafts
and heads are decided upon. They can then select shaft length, weight,
flex, bend profile, head design, grip style, and size that will optimize
the golfer's ball striking. After ball striking, set-makeup is discussed
and defined. We want to give the golfer a set of clubs that are easy to
hit with reasonable and consistent distance gaps between clubs.
Next, we obtain material to build the golfer's club set. From this,
test clubs for a follow-up tweaking session are built. During tweaking,
all the specs of the ball striking session are verified. Additional tests
with these clubs are run to refine swing weight (total club MOI) and Optimal
Weight using the Tour Lock Pro Weighting System. When the tweaking session has been completed, the remainder
of the clubs in the set are finished and delivered within about an
hour, giving the golfer a full set of clubs that will give him his best
distance, accuracy, consistency, feel, and trajectory.
During the build several processes are implemented
that benefit the golfer. All shafts are spine aligned
and properly oriented. Clubs are MOI matched instead of swing weighted.
MOI matched clubs require the same amount of force to swing and square
the club face, resulting in a higher level of swing timing consistency
and more consistent ball flight.
