We recommend that your self-evaluation be completely honest. Club fitting is about normal, average ability. It is not about how you hit the ball on that one occasion when the rhythm and timing were perfect. It is also not about how you played 10 or 20 years ago. We are simply trying to help you get the correct club, shaft and set make-up.
1. Correct Club Length:
Measure from Wrist Crease to Floor when standing Erect
Correct Grip Size
Measure from Start of Finger to End of Finger
Hands Shoulder Height or Lower
Hands Higher Than Shoulders
Wrist Cock Release Point on Downswing
1. Early Release means the downswing to the ball is started with the hands. Players who score 90 +.
2. Midway Release means the downswing to the ball is started with some body movement before the hands start to uncock. Players who score 82 - 89.
3. Late Release means the downswing to the ball is started by weight shift in the legs, followed by the trunk of the body and finally the hands uncocking very near impact with the ball. Players who score 70 - 74.
5. Normal Shot Direction:
Lie angle is very important on irons because it will determine ball flight direction. Below is a chart that gives lie angle based on wrist-to-floor measurement. Use this as a "starting point" when determining the ideal lie angle for you.
|Wrist-to-Floor Measurement||Lie Angle|
|29+" to 30"||4° Flat|
|30+" to 32"||3° Flat|
|32+" to 33"||2° Flat|
|33+" to 34"||1° Flat|
|34+" to 36"||Standard|
|36+" to 37"||1° Upright|
|37+" to 38"||2° Upright|
|38+" to 39"||3° Upright|
Here is an easy way to measure if your lie angle is correct on your irons. All you need is a Sharpie Permanent Marker. Draw a straight line on the back of the golf ball, and have it facing the clubhead. After you make impact the line will appear on the face (as shown in the picture). If it’s pointing towards the toe, then your club is too upright. If it’s pointing towards the heel, then it’s too flat. If the line is perpendicular to the grooves on the face, then your lie angle is correct.

To assist our club fitting, please send a video of your swing.
1. Using your phone or tablet, have a friend video your swing. Do at least 2 swings with one facing directly at you and the other from behind looking straight down the line of flight.
2. Attach the video to an email and send to firstname.lastname@example.org
3. We will analyze your swing and send our recommendations for club specifications.
