Once you arrive at the Precision Golf Studio and meet your club-fitter, the session will start with a detailed analysis of your current equipment in one of our 3 ground floor fitting bays. This will involve taking several measurements including shaft length, loft & lie angles, swing weight, total weight and shaft frequency (CPM – measured cycles per minute in oscillation). It is at this time you will be asked about your likes/dislikes of your current set, any favourite clubs, your main objectives for the session and any other issues you would like to address.
You will then warm up by hitting some practice balls in the bay - please use this opportunity to let your fitter know of any previous or current injuries or other issues they might need to be aware of. After you are warmed up, the fitter will switch to your preferred golf ball and start capturing data with one of our Trackman 4 launch monitors.
Once we have an array of data from your current equipment, we will talk through the numbers with you, explain what they mean and how they tie into the performance you see on the course. If your current equipment is performing well, we will explain why no change is needed. If anything, this could simply give you the confidence of knowing your clubs are set up correctly - in a game of confidence this can have a dramatic effect.
Sometimes, the equipment you already have may be performing reasonably well, and only slight work needed to optimise performance. For example, changing length, loft/lie angles, grip size or swing weight. In this instance we would normally arrange a date for you to leave the clubs with us for work to be completed within an agreed timescale. There are instances when light remedial work can be carried out at the time of the appointment. However, if there is an early indication of ill-fitting equipment where it may not be possible to use existing clubheads, this will be discussed, and we will move on to testing new products.
It is then our job to use our extensive in-house range of head and shaft combinations to gain efficiency and improve distance, dispersion and consistency. Precision Golf is brand neutral and we do not favour any one manufacturer over another – we deal purely on performance. Our fitters are mindful of budget constraints and preferences on brand, looks and feel. We use this criteria, along with the data provided by TrackMan to find the right combination of equipment that will help you play better golf.
We offer a premium service which generally attracts a higher cost and there a several reasons for this. Firstly, most of the 100s of shafts we use are of superior quality materials and tolerances than you will find in off the shelf equipment and these do carry a higher price. Secondly, it is also the build quality and accuracy that you are paying for. All the equipment supplied at Precision Golf is built by Master Club Builders who have built equipment for some the best players in the world, and to the highest tolerances in the industry. At Precision Golf you will be fitted for equipment in the most comprehensive way possible.
If you decide to proceed with any of our recommendations, we take full payment on the day of your appointment. We quote a lead time of up to 3 weeks to fulfil orders as parts are supplied from all over the world. We have a continuous stream of ongoing builds and our after-sales manager Patrick Smith will keep you up-dated with the progress of your order. For most of the equipment built, we prefer you to collect your clubs at the studio after a complimentary appointment lasting 45 minutes. This will involve hitting all your new clubs and your fitter also checking/adjusting loft and lie angles on any irons to ensure that your equipment performs optimally.
If you have any other questions, please don’t hesitate to ask.
