Which driver can hit the longest, the most straight and with the least dispersion?
OR: Which driver hits the longest, most straight and with the most collection?
Your golf equipment must be adapted to your body type, your swing, your abilities, your strength and - not to forget - your expectations, ie golf fitting.
Whether you are a beginner or a tour pro - or a level in between - you can be fitted to perform your best on the golf course.
Remember that a golf fitting is much more than hitting a few balls - perhaps with a launch monitor - and then choosing from what can hit the longest.
Your focus should be on finding the driver who hits the longest, most straight and with the most collection. And the same is true for your other golf set.
Golf fitting starts with to take some static measurements. This gives me a quick overview of what basic specifications your golf set should have.
- The theoretical total length of 5-iron and Driver
- Grip size
- Swing speed, which determines the flex of the shaft
Can my set be improved and make me a more skilled golfer?
Yes, ANY set can be improved, whether you are a Tour Pro, a beginner or somewhere in between.
Based on data from the survey made on your set, some of the values can be easily adjusted.
Loft and lie affects the length and direction of your stroke.
As a starting point, adjustment of the loft and scythe will be performed based on the manufacturer's specifications - and not just within the tolerances! Then you have a starting point that is known and registered.
Shaft length: can actually also vary, which will give you an experience that there are some irons you like better than others.
This can be corrected at the same time as the grip is replaced - perhaps to a different thickness than what you have today.
THAT'S how your set should have been when you bought it!
Now you are ready to test your irons to see how they perform on your home turf.
By the way, when did you last get your grip replaced?
When did you last change grips?
The rule of thumb is that with warm-ups and a round of golf a week, you should change grips once a year.
Do you feel that you are holding on to the grip because it is too thick or thin in your hand?
When you tense the muscles, you limit your swing and thus the result of your stroke.
I can let you try different grip sizes to find the one that suits you best.
Grip can be changed while you wait.

Frequency control - shaft "flex"
Your swing speed is the key to finding the flex (or frequency) that suits you when choosing the shaft for your clubs and irons.
An incorrect flex will affect your stroke in different ways depending on whether the shaft is too soft or too stiff.
Especially for your driver and your other woods, the shaft flex is just one of several parameters that affect the performance of your clubs.
If the shaft flex does not match your swing speed, it is possible to change shafts and reuse the heads without having to change the entire set. Everything else being equal: a cheaper solution than buying a new set.
It could also be that the shafts weigh too much.
It then allows to optimize the set with both spinning and FLO-ing of the shafts.
Spining = Find the “spine” in the shaft to be able to mount the shafts in the same way in the heads.
FLO = mount the head so that it always moves in the same plane.
MOI - (inter-moment)
Getting your set MOI-matched will mean you need to use the same amount of energy to swing your equipment.
Using the manufacturer's swing weight is not enough (You may have heard of “D2”). It is an arbitrary quantity that is not based on a physics formula like the inter-moment.
It is up to you to decide which "feel" you feel best with, as it is the one that should be hit in all clubs and irons.
This is something you try out when testing your clubs and irons at home.

What do you want to achieve and what are your goals?
Now your set is measured and adjusted to the manufacturer's specifications and a starting point is achieved.
Your physique, your normal ball flight and your natural swing are crucial to the choice of shaft, head and set composition of clubs and irons.
During our interview, I will be able to better advise you with your answers from an equipment point of view in how you will be able to achieve your goals.
