A Debate on Custom Fitting

A Debate on Custom Fitting

Most golfers probably have heard about the advantages of having their golf clubs custom fitted for them but statistics report that about 70% of players still go for standard clubs offered in the shelves. We can then conclude that more golfers are still unconvinced of what custom fitting claims it is.

One issue that remains debatable in the golf world is the question – Is the golfer’s performance really affected by the golf equipment?

Well, in reference to several informal case studies of golfers complaining about their shots, when they were given new equipment matched to their skills and styles, a significant increase on their performances was found. Therefore, if asked whether the performance of the golfer is affected his equipment, we can simply say that, “Yes, it does.” This statement has been proven by the different cases of different golfers who have experienced playing using custom fitted golf clubs.

However, let us take note that what improved the golfer’s performance was not the ‘change of equipment’ itself but changing into an equipment that ‘fits the player’. Customization is the key here. Changing into another equipment, regardless of its cost may still impair the player’s performance if not customized according to his needs. What needs to be done is to find the right clubs that best suits the golfer’s personal shot requirements.
