Club fitting creates a real issue for the fitting instructor, Was that your normal swing or are you trying to beat the measurements on the launch monitor?
The truth is that the majority of the time most fitters don’t know. This is why club fitting should be done by your coach or by a coach that understands the impact your motion is having on the golf club.
The bending of the shaft should be an asset if the ‘reflex’ is used to deliver a high club head speed and a control to the club face, however if the shaft does not fit the loading then your swing must change. Now you are ‘swing fitting’ to the club, not club fitting to the swing.
Your swing is bound to have inconsistencies but a well fitting club will hone in on the consistencies and discourage the movements that invite errant shots.
This is a list of the 33 elements we consider when fitting your golf clubs -
