Golf Club Technology… Is it worth it?
Not if it is the wrong size.
I was speaking to a room of 100 lady golfers about club fitting: “If you saw a beautiful pair of Gucci shoes on sale and there were a size 6 and you were a size 8 would you buy them?”…. a lady shouts out “I’d make them fit”.
That about sums up how most golfers buy golf clubs. What you need to know and accept is that professionally fitted Clubs will result in improved performance immediately. And for the higher handicap golfer, the greater the variance of improvement.
Most golfers think of two sizes; Men’s or Ladies; but there are a multitude of sizes (combination of specs) which when fitted to your swing will make a significant difference in how you strike the ball. Lie angle is one critical spec which you need to pay attention to. Lie angle is the angle the shaft comes out of your clubhead relative to the sole of your club, when the sole is parallel to the ground. Because there are so many different lie angles available, golfers need the lie angle that fits their personal swing.
