Custom Golf Clubs Fitting

To properly fit a golf club there are several properties that must be taken into consideration.  The club length is determined by the relationship between an individual’s height and arm length.  The appropriate golf club length along with a lie angle that is adjusted for an individual can greatly increase both accuracy and consistency.

Fitting a golfer with the loft, golf shaft, and golf shaft flex gives a golfer every advantage he needs to increase distance, ball flight, and accuracy.

For fitting assistance: Shaft length (standard club lengths), driver loft,  shaft flex,  lie angle, grip choice.

 

Step 1: How to Choose the Appropriate Golf Club Length and Lie Angle

Before you use the tables below it is important to know your height and your wrist-to-floor measurement. To determine your wrist-to-floor measurement wear regular shoes and stand on a hard surface with your arms and shoulders hanging relaxed at your sides. Just like at ease in the military.  Make sure both shoulders are level.  The measurement starts from the point where the hand meets your wrist to the floor. With this measurement and your height, use the table below to calculate the proper club length for you and the lie angle.

 

Use the table below to determine how much longer or shorter than standard your club should be and the proper lie angle.

Step 2: How to determine the proper shaft flex for your swing

Use the charts below to determine the proper flex. The charts below are for consistent carry yardages only (not including roll).
You may also use IN Golf’s wood shaft fitting wizard.  Just answer a couple of questions about your swing & physical build and the wizard will make shaft recommendations for you.

Distance Hit with a Driver
(Carry Distance Only)
Recommended Flex for Woods
180 Yards Ladies Flex
181 to 200 Yards Senior Flex
From 200 to 235 Yards Regular Flex
From 236 to 275 Yards Stiff Flex
275 Yards Extra-Stiff Flex
Club Used from 150 Yards Recommended Flex for Irons
#4 or #5 iron Ladies Flex
#5 iron Senior Flex
#6 iron Soft Regular Flex
#7 iron Regular Flex
#7 or #8 iron Firm Flex
#8 iron Stiff Flex
#9 iron Extra-Stiff Flex

Step 3: How to determine the proper wood and hybrid shaft length

The proper shaft length will allow you to feel comfortable and will help you strike the ball more effectively and consistently. Having the wrong shaft length can either have your body to upright or bent over too much.

Step4: How to determine the proper grip size?

Use the chart below to determine the proper grip size for the clubs. Grip size is a very crucial part of the clubs because having an improper grip size can create too much tension when gripping the golf club and promote a push-slice or pull-hooks.
