FIT FOR YOU

A proper club fitting is the most important investment you can make when purchasing your set of golf clubs.

A club fitting will help golfers find the right equipment to play their best game of golf. Whether you’re looking to hit it straighter, further, clean, or simply just wanting to take advantage of the newest and best equipment from top manufacturers, a club fitting with one of our experts can help you find what you need to play better golf.

The fitting centre at Royal Ashburn Golf Club is brand agnostic and specializes in Titleist, Callaway, Ping and TaylorMade.  All of these manufacturers make the top of the line equipment, but every golfer has a personal preference as to the brands they play. Our goal is to help you choose a brand of club that best suits your individual game which will help promote more positive outcomes and optimal performance when you’re out on the course. 

Trackman technology helps answer a lot of questions that golfers have about their stroke and game. Trackman measures ball fight and expresses the interaction between the club and ball so accurately that it is easy to understand a golf balls flight and how a clubhead is being delivered by the golfer. Properly fit clubs offer the possibility for increased distance and provide golfers with the following 3 C’s:

  • Comfort – A club should be sized correctly to your body and set up so that you aren’t modifying your swing or set up to conform to the club.
  • Confidence – Properly fit clubs can help eliminate misses and provide a more consistent shot shape that you can rely upon to play your best.
  • Consistency – Newer equipment is designed to improve misses across the clubface and a club fitting allows us to choose the equipment that manages your misses appropriately and makes the most of of your best shots. 

In the following example, a golfer is swinging his 7 iron at 96 MPH and has produced a ball speed 130 MPH.

After the ball speed, launch angle and spin rates are the other major variables that determine the carry distance and peak height that ball achieves. By changing these numbers in a fitting we can dial in equipment to help promote iron shots that fly at the ideal height with the proper amount of spin for the club being used. 

For iron shots we work towards a ball that has the desired shot shape, lands softly with some stopping power on your approach shots while still placing a premium on distance.

FITTING FEES

Fitting Notes Arrive 20 – 30 minutes prior to club fitting to check-in, and get warmed up on the driving range. Range balls are included for both warming up and the club fitting. Please bring your current equipment for comparison.

WHAT WE TRACK

While we fit for several different variables including both lie and loft angle, our primary focus is on the efficiency of the key terms below.  Understanding these terms and why they are important allow our club fitters to maximize the performance from your equipment.

SMASH FACTOR

SMASH FACTOR

Is concerned with club head speed and resulting ball speed. 
The smash factor is a calculation which shows how efficiently energy is transferred from the clubhead to the golf ball during impact.  In a driver fitting session we are working towards achieving a smash factor as close to 1.50 as possible.  That means for a swing speed of 100 mph, the golf ball should leave the clubface at a speed of 150 mph. 

Increased ball speed equates to increase distance.  For every 1 mph increase in ball speed your gaining approximately 2 additional yards in distance. The higher the smash factor, the farther you’ll hit it!

SMASH FACTOR

SPIN RATE

One of the most important variables in club fitting. 
There are many variables affecting spin rate including swing speed, shaft flex, shaft kick point and attack angle and finding a shaft that creates an optimal spin rate will allow for superior performance.  Too much spin and the ball will fly too high and perform poorly in windy conditions and too little spin and the ball will fly too low. Both issues will cause a significant loss of distance from your driver and fairway woods as well poor performance from iron shots into the green.

LAUNCH ANGLE

LAUNCH ANGLE

Is the angle at which the ball initially leaves the clubface after impact.
In concert with the correct spin rate and ball speed, the launch angle is crucial in determining how far the ball will carry and roll after landing. For example, we are looking for a launch angle between 11 and 15 degrees for the average amateur male golfer. This ensures maximum carrying distance in the air as well as landing at an angle that will promote a big first bounce and yardage gains through additional roll. 

LAUNCH ANGLE

DYNAMIC LOFT

Dynamic loft is the angle of the club at impact.
There are many factors that contribute to determining the ideal dynamic loft including club head speed, angle of attack, and the release of the clubhead though the ball and there are several variables that affect this position including shaft flex, weight and kick point. While this sounds complicated, it’s easy to do with a proper club fitting and allows for optimal trajectory, ball flight and carry.

FIT FOR YOU

Golf club fitting is a mysterious subject for a large portion of modern golf public. Due to advances in launch monitor technology, fittings were mostly performed by the trained eye of a golf professional and used very minimal measurable data. Though those techniques were capable of providing positive results when performed correctly, the human eye is just not capable of seeing all the details of a golf balls launch and flight. Trackman takes a radar signature 40,000 times per second and provides 26 detailed data points that allow us to clearly see performance differences between equipment.

With so many choices for todays golf consumer, a fitting with Trackman can provide immediate feedback to find the proper club and shaft that performs best for your particular swing. Just as a marathon runner with size 10 feet wouldn’t buy size 9 runners and expect to be able to perform to a high level, the same is also true for golf clubs and golfers. We understand that new clubs are a large investment and you can rest assured you are buying the right ones that will last for a long time.

The Royal Ashburn Golf Club located just north of Whitby, in Durham Region and is fully stocked with all four major brands: Titleist, PING, Taylormade and Callaway to ensure you are getting the best fit with the best equipment in the game.
