CLUB FITTING FAQ'S

Why do we charge for fittings?

We have been custom fitting golfers since 2006 and strongly believe in our ability to improve your golf game. It has taken us years to attain the knowledge of fitting and the effects equipment has on different player’s games.  We combine our abilities with expert use of some of the finest, sophisticated testing equipment and software for club fitting.  Our vast array of club making tools are the same type and quality seen on most Tour Vans.  We're worth it!

 

Is the cost of the fitting applied towards the purchase of new clubs?

The goal of a fitting is get you to play your best golf with an honest evaluation of your equipment, not to just sell you equipment.  That's why we do not apply the fitting fee to a sale.

Can I do all my fittings in one day?

If you are physically able to hit a lot of golf shots over the course of a few hours, then yes. We generally recommend doing one fitting per day so each fitting is as accurate as possible.

Am I good enough to have a club fitting?

We believe that EVERY golfer can benefit from a club fitting and swing analysis. The higher the handicap the more important it is.

How do I schedule an appointment?

You can call the shop and speak to one of our representatives at 705-358-7952 or visit our contact page. CLICK HERE

 

Does Engineered Golf accept walk-in appointments?

Sorry, all of our fittings are done by appointment only.  This insures the best service for you.

How long does a club fitting take?

Club fittings last about 2 hours; a putter fitting usually lasts about an hour.  We usually find that a full bag fitting can take up to 8 hours and is completed over multiple sessions.

What should I bring with me on the day of the appointment?

If it is possible, we wish that you bring your golf bag with all of your current clubs, the day before your appointment.  We would like some time to spec and analyze them. We also ask that you wear golf shoes or sneakers to your fitting appointment.

What brands does Engineered Golf carry?

Engineered Golf carries most major shaft & grip manufacturers.  We carry boutique clubhead manufacturers such as, Wishon, Alpha, Miura, Tour Edge Exotics, Swing Science.  For a complete list, please  CLICK HERE

What brand do you recommend?

Engineered Golf does not recommend any particular brand.  Our fittings are performance based; your clubs will be the ones that you hit best during the fitting.

 

Why are your clubs better than all of the famous brands that are advertised?

If we were robots, there would be no noticeable difference in results when hitting any similar clubs.  A robotic hitting machine will hit each 46" long & 10 degree lofted driver from any OEM these days, about 250 yards carry distance with a 100 mph clubhead speed.  That machine will always make center face contact.  It's unaffected by shaft flex, length or weight.  Golfers are human and that is where proper custom club fitting comes in.  We fit for 13 major variables, and 8 minor ones.  The OEM's only fit for 3 or four variables.  We pay the utmost attention to every club making detail and exactly match our assembled clubs with each of your final test club's specifications.  That's why our clubs are better!

 

What are the 13 major variables?

They are:  clubhead design & appearance, loft, lie angle, face angle, offset, total length, total weight, balance, swingweight or MOI, shaft flex profile, grip style & size, and set makeup.

 

What's involved in great custom clubfitting?

Here's the short answer.  A great deal of experience and technical skills are involved.  We know how golf equipment can affect the swing and how swing characteristics affect the selection of the components of the club.  We know how and what data to collect.  We know how to analyze that data and draw the correct conclusions.  And finally, we make the experience fun during the fitting and seeing the improved results on the golf course. We encourage you to read further for an in-depth discussion.  CLICK HERE

 

Do club companies manufacture progressively consistent clubs?

In short, the answer is “no”. While they certainly try to make consistent product, they don’t necessarily do so. It would be nice to believe that every set comes from the factory with precise specifications, but that's just not the case. There are often inconsistencies in the flex, weight, length, lofts and lies of the clubs. Clubs are mass-produced with certain +/- manufacturing tolerances in every factory.

Are there standards for golf clubs?

The word "standard" really shouldn't be used when talking about club performance fitting. You're matched to your own individual specifications and they are standard for just you.  Engineered Golf records the details for future reference, thereby setting your "standard” for improved individual performance.

 

What about standard lofts and lie angles?

The manufacturer’s specifications are used as a reference only. However, the lofts and lies can be adjusted progressively consistent from one club to the next.  Plus, Engineered Golf can bend the angles to a consistent specification precisely fit for you.

Are there common standards for shaft flex?

No, there aren't.  Even though it says S on your shaft does not mean that S flex is the same for a different model line, let alone a different manufacturer.  Each manufacturer has their own system to rate flex independently from one another.

 

How do I find the proper flex shaft for me?

Shaft flex is defined as the overall average resistance to bending.  It's often seen as a letter designation, i.e. X, R, S, L, A, AA.  Engineered Golf measures the actual stiffness of the butt end, center and clubhead end of the shaft.  Each section's stiffness is fitted against your particular swing speed, force of transition from backswing to downswing, and release point.  We utilize a Flightscope launch monitor and high speed video to capture the data needed to match each zone profile of the correct shaft.

 

What else should I know about shafts?

Each golfer is uniquely different, just like fingerprints.  We each have an optimum shaft length, shaft weight, balance point and flex profile that maximizes our performance.  Our thorough testing procedure will identify the optimum shaft will be selected for you.

 

So, is shaft flex the most important shaft characteristic?

No, shaft length is the most important characteristic, then shaft weight.  Shaft lengths for most OEM "off-the-rack" clubs are actually too long for most golfers.  The lure for added distance has created this problem.  Clubs that are too long are far too difficult to hit consistently well.  We might hit a couple really great, but our average distance from the pin will be further.  When we are farther from the pin, we effectively are hitting the ball shorter.  What we strive to achieve, is center-face contact.  If the club length does not match your swing, you will not achieve it.

 

What's so important about shaft weight?

The shaft is the club component that has the most effect on differing the assembled club's total weight.  Changing the total weight and balance point will affect your performance.  Don't think that you will always swing a club faster and hit it longer with a lighter shaft.  Your golfing DNA will make you compensate for a club that is either too light or too heavy.  You try to steer the club, and lose speed.  The proper weighted club lets you swing and control the club properly.  You'll hit that club further and straighter.

 

More about shaft weight.

We have noticed that nearly 80% of golfers we have tested have seen an improvement in correcting slicing or hooking tendencies by adjusting the weight of the shaft.  Come in for a club fitting and see the results for yourself.

 

Is distance important? 

Yes, distance is very important, but hitting a shot on-line leaves you closer to your target for the next shot.  Then your next shot's going to be easier.  With our club fitting process we'll select the right clubhead with the optimized shape & weight to get your shots started on target.  The proper head weight will allow for better club face control.  You will see better accuracy and that's increased effective distance.
