Getting your left-handed golf club fitted can help you improve your swing by adjusting the shaft length, shaft flex, and grip size of your club. Learn about the importance of golf club fitting in this free online golf lesson video.
Hi! I am Jason Wyatt head golf professional here at Sunningdale Golf and Country Club, I am here to show you today why lefties should be fit. One of the major components in today’s technology with regards to clubs is club fitting, so what you look at is this an iron that we have out of our fitting card, one of the major things that we work on is length of the shaft, to make sure if you are 6 footer you need a different length shaft compared to a person like me who is 5’6” and 5’7”, after a light tape on the bottom, try and hit a few shots, and we have what is called color codes, and we can actually bend these irons, so once again if you are hitting so the toe of the golf club was opening up and hitting it to the left, we would then again have to make your golf club more upright. If you are hitting it off the heel and the ball is going to the right, we would have to flatten the golf club, again by flatting we move it this way to make sure that the club is flat on the bottom of the ground. After that we work on shaft flex whether you need a stiff or regular shaft and last but not least is the grip size and probably one of the more important things in the golf game, if you are hitting it left or right, I can pretty much cure by just changing the grip size of the golf club. So make sure next time you are looking around and looking at a new set of irons, please talk about club fitting.
