Everyone should get custom fitted for their Irons. Together with the innovations in face technology,
it offers you the quickest route to improvement and fulfillment. Different skill levels see different improvements.

 

 
 
Ball flight improves (easier to get the ball in the air)
which adds to distance, and most importantly,
enjoyment. Number of bad misses decreases,
taking shots off the scorecard.
Clubs with the right swing weight and shaft
make it easier to improve, faster.
The big winner we see here is distance.
Often more than a club length at the
7 Iron level, making approach play easier.
Consistency improves quickly (as you’d expect
withthe right lie angle, shaft length
and shaft flex). For most golfers this is the
quickest way to Break 90. 

 

 
 
   
Comfort and confidence with mid-irons translates
into more greens in regulation.
The #7 Iron and down, becomes clubs
that are attacking the pin more often.
That’s what the perfect configuration buys you.
We still see distance improvements,
but at this level, added yards are less
important than accuracy and consistency.

 
Here the improvement we’re delivering
is translated into feet closer on the green.
Six or seven 10 feet Putts offer more birdies
than the equivalent number of 25-footers.
Here, there’s a granularity to the fitting
that offers very specific shaft performance.
The feel of the club at contact is often a
discernable improvement as contact
is made with the sweet spot more easily. 

 
Almost every golfer we custom fit for a set of Irons notes at least one dimension of measurable
improvement. Those with higher handicaps and the less skilled often see two, or even three,
dimensions of measurable improvement, IMMEDIATELY.
What could your improvement be? 
 

If you’ve got some time for practice, but you’re not working on a specific movement or improvement,
then don’t run up and down the bag, or hit 50 shots with the same club. Play the course.

 
 
Replicate your experience on your regular course. You play different clubs, one after the other.
Very rarely will you use the same club (excluding the Putter) twice in a row out on the course.


So practice real conditions.
 
 
For each hole play, use the club you’d tee off with. Assess your performance,
and then play the second, aiming at a target.
If your approach wasn’t tight, then you’ve got a Wedge shot. Estimate the distance and aim again.

How close you are to the hole indicates 1 or 2 Putts (forget 3 Putts and bunkers).
You get the picture. Every shot has an intent. Finding the fairway, hitting the green etc. Keep score. 
 

You’re better off hitting 50 shots carefully with 100% concentration on the improvement you’re trying to make,
rather than hitting 100 shots with even 80% concentration. Unsure of when to use block or random practice, then
 

Here's to great golf!
