Fitting Summary & Results
9th Nov 2017
PGA Touring Pro
I have known Darren for about 10 years. He is a touring professional who has had success and won on both the Australian Tour and Asian Tours. PureForm Golf has fit him in the past and has done a bit of work to Darrens’ own equipment, however I found the shafts he was using, didn’t quite match his angle of attack or smooth tempo.
Although the results from a distance point of view aren’t alot, the feel and consistency of strike, time after time is the confidence Darren can take from having shaft options to be able to test.
Clearly shown by his 1.46 smash factor with the fitted irons and tighter grouping. Also if you notice his swing speed went down, by 3.4mph (so he is in more control through the ball) and is ball speed went up.
By matching Darren’s timing, tempo and angle of attack to the right shaft, we have given him all the chances for success in the new year!
While Darren is a pro, this fitting principle will be even more dramatic when applied to higher handicappers. Pros can easily adjust to their equipment to make it work — amateurs have a harder time feeling the clubhead and how the shaft is loading and releasing through the swing.
This is where a fitting at PureForm will really benefit your game. We fit, build and deliver the best clubs from the top manufacturers to suit your game. Drop in and say hi and myself or any of the other staff will be happy to take you through our process.
We wish Darren all the best for Asian Tour School next month.
