I started playing golf back in 1993 and was somewhat taken by the game and its challenges.
But no more than I decided to attend a Club building course at Golfsmith U.K. in spring, 1994 to get the hands-on experience and insight in what it actually requires to build golf clubs.
I bought some components, tools and instruments and started getting some experience.
In 1995 I was lucky to be elected to run a pro shop at a pay-n-play golf course. Many visitors, but not so many customers.
Over the years I have been attending factory training at Wilson Sporting Goods, Irvine, Scotland and at TaylorMade, U.K. when being the suppliers’ guarantee repair shop for Danish customers and also had a week’s course at HQ, Golfsmith, Austin TX.
In 2000 I stopped running the shop and focused on servicing the club members, but kept the clubmaking business on the side.
In 2009 I stopped the day-to-day work at the golf club, but kept Clubfitting as a pastime hobby.
I work out of the following basic principles:
• Any golfer has his own unique swing
• Any golfer has his defined purpose with golf
• Any golfer should play with the lightest shaft he can control
• Any golfer should play with the lightest clubs he can control
• Why buy new equipment when the old can be modified
• Why practice with golf equipment that does not fit you
• Clubfitting is for everyone
• The golf equipment must be fitted to suit the golfer’s swing, not the swing fitted to the golf equipment
The first step in the fitting process I use is:
Measuring the golfer’s equipment and compare it with the manufacturer’s specifications.
• More often than not I find differences in swing weight, length, loft and lie
I measure the golfer’s
• wrist-to-ground measure to determine theoretical club length
• visually the grip
When the adjustments have been made in consultation with the golfer, he is then sent off to get the (new) feel of his equipment. This is to be done in familiar surroundings and at his leasure.
The next step is to find ways to improve “feel”. This is achieved with leadtape. I can measure MOI (which I prefer over swingweight) and adjust the irons accordingly.
This time the golfer should have completed the fitting.
Basically the same method is used when I build a set.
1. Swing speed test with driver/3wood and 6 og 7 iron
2. Wrist-to-ground measure for theoretical length
3. Visual check of grip size
4. Test with demo clubhead and shafts to find the optimal combination
When the components are ordered and subsequently delivered each part is measured and weighed with everything recorded.
Shaft weight, tip trim, spine, FLO, CPM, balance point, head weight.
A test iron is built for the golfer to try out and report any additional wishes/adjustments he wishes to be incorporated in the final build.
All factual data will be recorded (static weight, swing weight, actual club length, MOI, loft, lie). Then the golf set is delivered to the golfer so that he can test in familiar surroundings at his golf club.
When the testing is completed we meet and any adjustments to lie will be made. Should there also be gapping issues these will be addressed at the same time.
To me, helping golfers with the challenges with their equipment is more rewarding than actually playing the game. That said, I truly enjoy a round with my son and the odd customer from time to time.
It keeps me busy – and thereby sane – in this crazy world.
Drop me a mail, describing your issues and I’ll get back to you asap.
All the best
