CLUB FITTING. If you want to maximise your “shot making” or “swing movements” you must ensure that your golf clubs are ideally fitted to your physique, body proportions and fitness. We want to ensure the clubs you are using are absolutely adjusted to optimise your game. We will always, where possible, customize the clubs you have – only if that is not possible might we suggest you purchase new ones.
OPTIMISED FIT – this is the Industry Standard approach. Nearly all manufacturers employ a “Dynamic Fit” that optimises the golfers swing on that day. Ideal, if you are content with your swing as it is; however, if you are 24 hcp but aspire to single figures, the “optimised” fit establishes and ingrains the 24 hcp swing you have at that time. “Industry Standard” it may be, but – there is a better way!
OPTIMUM BIOMECHANICAL FIT – Between a golfer’s flattest swing and most upright swing lies their optimal golf swing. This Biomechanical Optimum is unique to the golfer’s physique, height and body proportions – that optimal plane also varies according to the club in use. Rather than a “Dynamic Fit”, the OBSP is determined using a “Static” fit - in the same way you might be measured for a suit. Everyone has an optimal Biomechanical Swing Plane – the closer they swing to their optimum plane, the more powerful and accurate their shots become.
POWER FIT – only if we understand and measure your OBSP can we offer you a choice of two further fitting options; the POWER FIT and the ACCURACY FIT. If you are a consistent, accurate player but need more distance we first measure your OBSP- once we know that, we can build a set of clubs a little longer, with a slightly flatter lie. This POWER FIT is a “Static” fit combined with a “Dynamic” fit.
ACCURACY FIT – Understanding the OBSP means we can offer a 4th Custom Fit option – the ACCURACY FIT. If you are a powerful but wayward striker of the ball, we assess your OBSP with our unique “FUNDAMENTAL FITTING GUAGE”. By fitting you with slightly shorter clubs with a more upright lie, we can improve your accuracy and consistency. Again, this is a combination of “Static” and “Dynamic” fit.
FUNDAMENTAL FITTING GUAGE. For over 40 years Luther Blacklock has studied the golf swing movement and taught thousands of golfers to play to a higher standard. This led him to a profound understanding of the swing’s biomechanical function in relation to the flight of the golf ball.
Consequently, he designed the “FUNDAMENTAL FITTING GUAGE” to improve the Custom Club Fitting process. He believes the four choices of bespoke custom fitting will become “Industry Standard” and help Club Fitter and customer to determine the ideal bespoke club specifications.
The Fundamental Fitting Gauge offers not just one, but four, fitting options:
BIOMECHANICAL OPTIMUM FIT
BALL FITTING. By measuring your Swing Speed, Clubhead Speed, Launch Angle and swing type we can recommend the ideal ball to suit your unique, personal specifications. For example, we can guide you to the ball that promotes accuracy or the one that increases distance.
With Luther’s unique understanding of the golf swing’s biomechanical movements, we can offer a choice of 4 customisations
