These game improvment clubs (XV Hybrids, XV Irons, XV Slice Correction Driver, Prophet Irons) are specially designed for mid to high scoring golfers to hit straighter, longer shots with more consistency.
Custom Fitting Your Putter
Golfers use the putter more than any other club in the bag. 43% of the average golfer’s shots are struck with the putter. Yet how do most golfers buy a putter? By trial and error, with the emphasis put almost entirely on the “look” or the design features of the putter head, instead of the 4 critical putter fitting elements.
Granted, it’s a fact – if the golfer isn’t confident with the look of the putter behind the ball, they won’t have the confidence or the ability to accurately line up the putt. On the other hand, if the putter’s Length, Loft, Lie and overall weight balance are not matched to each golfer’s style of putting, there is little chance the putter will lower the score.
When you think that golfers are so different in their height, arm length and putting posture, it’s logical to think that the length of the putter must be custom fit to ensure a smooth putting stroke. Arms scrunched up into the body or stretched out to the point of tension while stroking the putt are not conducive to putting consistency.
The loft of the putter must be matched to the golfer’s hand position at impact to ensure the ball rolls smoothly. Does the golfer forward press to start their stroke or position the ball back of center in their stance? If so, they need more loft. Is the golfer a wristy putter or do they position the ball ahead of the center to front of their stance? If so, they may need less loft.
Putter Lie Angle
Since putters do have loft, that means if the toe or the heel of the putter is off the ground at impact, the face is pointing somewhere other than the intended target line. For consistent accuracy, the putter’s lie angle must be adjusted for each golfer so the putter sits perfectly in the center of the sole from heel to toe.
Putter Weight Balance
There is a weight balance for putters that will allow every golfer to be more consistent. One of the most interesting developments in modern putter fitting is to add weight in the grip end of the putter. Counterweighting, as it is called, with a 80 to 100 gram weight installed in the grip end of the shaft is proving to allow many golfers to develop a smoother stroke which results in more on center hits with the putter and more consistent distance control of the putt.

The large "name brand" manufacturers make their clubs TOO long for 95% of golfers. Their drivers are made 45½" to 46½" where as the average driving club used by Tour Professionals is 44½".
So why is this done? Because, companies advertise that the longer the length is, the longer you will hit the ball. Except it only works when you have smooth tempo, a consistent square swing path, a LATE RELEASE OF YOUR WRIST-COCK ANGLE (notice it is capitalized...must be important), good swing timing / rhythm.
If this isn't you, it's not going to work. The best advice is to hit a shorter #1 Metalwood, 43.5" to 44.5" (unless your physical stature dictates a longer length). With the new XV line of metalwoods for high scoring golfers, we have the ability to get the shorter length without sacrificing club head weight which is essential for accuracy. Don't let Callaway or Taylormade fool you into believing that distance is more important than accuracy.
Most golfers believe that they need a low lofted driver to hit longer drives. High scoring golfers need higher a loft angle on their clubs. For real game improvement, the loft should be determined by how far you hit the ball.
If you are a beginner, high scoring golfer or occasional golfer, select the highest loft available.
Drive 260 + yards could use a 9.5°
Drive 230 - 260 yards should use a 10.5°
Drive 160 - 230 yards should use a 12°
Drive less than 160 yards must use a 14°
At Condor Golf, custom fitting the grip size is vital to game improvement because it plays a significant role in a golfers' ability to control the club.
A larger grip (anything larger than standard) would benefit a player who:
Has large hands
Consistently draws or hooks the ball
Has arthritis (or any other hand problem) or struggles to hold a standard grip
Has fingers that wrap around the grip and dig into the palm
A smaller grip (anything smaller than standard) would benefit a player who:
Has small hands
Consistently slices or fades the ball
Has fingers that do not fully encircle the grip
