6 REASONS TO GET CUSTOM-FITTED GOLF CLUBS
The Belfry Golf Shop offers a custom golf club fitting service at the PGA Golf Academy just outside Sutton Coldfield. Custom fitted golf clubs are clubs made to your personal specification that work in unison with your height, swing speed, and technique to improve the aim and distance of every shot. Once only a luxury for the professionals, custom golf clubs are increasingly popular and widely available to amateur players. If you’re looking to improve your handicap, a custom set of golf clubs could be for you.
Take a look at these other great reasons to invest in a custom set of clubs:
- Fit to your swing: As an amateur, it’s harder to adapt to different golf clubs, so it is essential they are fitted to an individual swing.
- Benefit from technology: To gain the maximum benefit from the latest golf technology every player must have the correct loft, lie, length and weight of clubs to suit their swing.
- Understand your game: The custom fitting process can help develop a greater understanding of your own game and how your biomechanics can influence selection of the most suitable clubs for your game.
- Gain confidence: Knowing that you have been correctly fitted with clubs to suit your swing should provide you with the confidence to commit to each swing and play to the best of your ability.
- Adapt to your ability: As physical and golfing abilities change over time, so do your club requirements, it is essential to be fitted for each new set that you buy.
- Back up your investment: Custom fitting is free of charge when purchasing a new set of clubs.So, if you’re making a sound investment on new hardware, it makes sense to ensure your money is being spent on the best golf clubs for your game.
