Here’s a chance for you to improve your game for free! Select Myrtle Beach Golf Courses will be hosting free club fittings from a variety of top club manufacturers from now until April. While many people think they’re not a good enough player to benefit from a fitting, that couldn’t be further from the truth. Without the proper clubs, any golfer is giving up yards, accuracy, and ultimately, strokes.
“Even with all the latest developments and technology in golf, most golfers aren’t using clubs that fit them,” said Dale Ketola, director of instruction and fitting at Grande Dunes Golf Performance Center. “Even if you’ve been fitted before, mechanics can change. You should be checked every so often to make sure your clubs complement your game.”
Ketola is a certified club fitter with many different vendors. He begins each club fitting with a player interview to determine what the golfer hopes to achieve from the experience. He analyzes every aspect of the club including loft, face angle, size of head, weight, length of shaft, kick point of shaft, shaft flex, lie angle, stiffness, grip size and type, wedge spacing, and set makeup. Fittings often involve a great deal of mathematical data and Ketola efficiently analyzes the numbers to provide the best product to fit your needs.
