Club Fitting for Adults

Get Fitted at Tri-Mountain
The MP Golf Instruction Academy offers a comprehensive club fitting service to cover all of your equipment needs. Custom fit golf clubs will make a big difference in your game no matter your skill level. During the fitting process, we use the major golf brand in the industry Cleveland/Srixon.

We also use the latest technology in GCQuad from Foresight Sports, which uses a quad camera system that precisely tracks the parameters of the golf ball and provides data such as launch conditions, spin rates, ball speeds, smash factors and much more to help in dialing in the perfect club for every golfer.

Lastly, our expert club-fitter, Michael Parker, uses his teaching skills and expertise to make certain that the clubs are perfect for the players swing. Having an experienced and educated teacher enhances the fitting experience and offers the player a first-class experience.

The Fitting Process
You will want to bring your set of clubs with you for your fitter to initially assess what you currently have been playing. This will also serve as a good comparison to what the benefits will be as you test new equipment in finding the exact fit. Both a visual look at your posture and set up along with a static test will be done initially. You will then hit balls using the GCQuad Launch Monitor, which is the finest piece of equipment in the business and used by all major manufacturers. Then depending on your GCQuad numbers, goals for your game, and practice habits vs. playing time, our Master fitter will give you a series of combinations of heads and shafts, monitoring each combination and pin pointing your exact fit. This process takes approximately 1 1/2 to 2 hours for irons only 1 hour for driver only.

IRONS: Iron fittings have a few more considerations than a driver as you have the short, mid and long irons. As of recent times you now have hybrids replacing long irons so the gapping and specific lofts need to be carefully considered.

DRIVER: With the new technology in driver head adjustments it usually takes the whole hour to dial in the exact shaft, loft and lie of the new drivers. Since all drivers use graphite shafts which have a multitude of different characteristics and the heads have so many possibilities it takes time to get the combination correct. It is also another reason why it is so important that you have an expert club fitter who has many years of experience and is educated with all the newest technology.

WEDGES: Wedge fitting and gapping should also be considered when optimizing your set of clubs. There are so many options of lofts and bounces these days that it often becomes very confusing as to what you should be using. By today’s standards most pitching wedges are around 47 degrees of loft, give or take one degree. Your sand wedge gapping needs to be even amount between them and the pitching wedge for example. 47 degree PW, 53 degree gap wedge and 59 degree lob wedge. That would be a 6 degree gap between each club. Some players prefer a 5 degree gap while others like to carry 4 wedges and have a 4 degree difference between them. These options will all be discussed with your fitter. The amount of bounce on each club needs to vary as well depending upon your swing shape and your talent level.

PUTTER: We utilize the fitting system from Never Compromise. Most golfers underestimate the value and need of a properly fitted putter. The length of putters was initially decided to be 35 inches long, so that they can stick out of a standard size golf bag. However, because golfers come in all heights with different arm lengths, it is ridiculous to think that one size fits all. The putter is also the most used club in your bag and you will take more strokes with it than any other club. For that reason ,you owe it to your game to get properly fit. For standard style putters, the biggest three variables for putter fitting are the length, swing weight and balance characteristics of the putter head. Grip size and putter head shape are somewhat individual preferences.
