We are now a Cleveland Fitting centre and with our launch monitors and Gasp system this makes it the ideal place to get you new cleveland club fittinggolf clubs for the upcoming season. So how does this process work ?
Bring a couple of you own clubs with you and hit shots with them so that we can create a base line to start with. Ball speed, launch angle, dispersion, and Backspin.
We then start a 4 step fitting process
Step 1. Model selection
Step 2. Shaft flex depending on your ball speed we can choose the best shaft for you
90 to 95 mph ball speed A flex graphite
95 to 105 mph ball speed R flex steel
105 to 120 mph ball speed S flex steel
120mph and above. X stiff steel
Step 3. Now that we have decided the correct shaft flex we need to look at the tempo of the golf swing and the launch angle. We have 8 different shafts to try and as a rough guide the heavier shaft will keep the ball flight down and the lighter shaft will add launch angle. Faster swings suit heavy shafts and slow swings suit lighter shafts.
Step 4. Lie angle we place the club on a hitting board with tape on the bottom of the club if the marks come out of the heel of the bottom of the club the lie angle is to upright causing the ball to go to the left. Marks out of the toe of the bottom of the club mean that the club lie is too flat causing the ball to go to the right of the target. We will also look at the golf swing to make sure we are not fitting the club to a swing fault which is creating a incorrect mark on the bottom of the club.
We do a wood fitting, iron fitting and Wedge fitting with the best thing being if you don’t see a improvement in the new clubs performance compared to your old set then don’t change
