First we will get some details from you to determine your likes and di
slikes, your current set make-up, shot pattern and your preferences from your new set. This process is continual throughout the fitting.
Here we will do a basis fitting to determine a starting point from which to begin. Hand size, Height, wrist to floor measurements. These will give us your static colour code. This can be done via the PING online web-fit.
This is the most important part of the process, your own swing variables will be taken into consideration. Using impact tape and a impact board, when stuck will mark the club on various points on the sole. This helps the fitter how the set-up and swing affect the club at impact.

Online custom fittings cannot execute the total fitting procedure successfully. As they typically ask for ‘static’ measurements, for example height, wrist to floor length and hand size, they can only calculate a basic fit at best.
A ‘dynamic fit’ whilst striking a ball reveals a whole different set of measurements that an experienced custom fitter can use to ensure the best results, be warned!
