The Hole Thing - Custom Golf Clubs You Can Afford!

Welcome

The Hole Thing is here to start you on your way to a better golf game through the use of properly chosen and fitted golf clubs!

 

It doesn't matter if you're a scratch golfer or a hacker... properly chosen and fitted golf clubs make a huge difference in your game.

 

Most golfers think that custom clubs are really only for the best players. Nothing could be farther from the truth. Although all golfers can benefit from custom fit golf clubs it's the BEGINNERS who benefit the most! Let's face it, most of the guys on the pro circuit could beat us using a rusty rake! It's the beginners, hackers, and high handicappers who will see the biggest difference in their games by having properly chosen, properly fitted equipment!

 

You low handicappers and scratch players most likely already know all about Custom Fitting. Let me know if I can be of any help in tweaking that set of sticks to get you those few extra inches you'd like to have when working the ball or that extra few feet of roll on the drive.

Why Custom Golf Clubs?

Any golfer who is about to invest in their game by purchasing a new set of clubs should make one more investment, too: getting custom fit.

Every golfer is a bit different in size, body shape and the shape of their golf swing. A custom fitting results in clubs that are specifically suited to an individual's height, strength, clubhead speed and swing characteristics.

Off-the-shelf golf clubs are one-size-fits-all, designed for the "typical" golfer. In this case, typical means someone 5-foot-9 or 5-10 who hits a 5- or 6-iron 160 yards. A golfer might get lucky with an off-the-shelf set, but many golfers will find themselves ill-suited to such a set. And the adjustments a golfer makes in his or her game to compensate for an ill-fitting set can make grooving a great swing that much more difficult.

  • Shaft Length: Among other things, shaft length will impact where on the clubface the ball is consistently struck. The correct shaft length will prevent a golfer from having to alter a natural swing arc in order to make optimal impact.
  • Lie Angle: This is the angle formed by the shaft and sole of the club. Having a correct lie angle will cause the center of the clubhead to touch the ground. If the toe of the clubhead is raised, a hooking shot may result. Should the heel be raised, a push or slice may result.
  • Shaft Flex: The shaft flex impacts things such as trajectory, accuracy, distance and consistency. During the golf swing, the club "flexes" throughout until squarely meeting the ball at impact. An incorrect shaft flex significantly reduces the chance of making consistently solid contact.
  • Shaft Type: Here, again, personal characteristics make the decision. The composition of steel and graphite shafts, their kick (or bend) points, swing weights and torque ratings are considerations
  • Grip Size: The right grip size can impact the golfers ability to return the clubface to a square position and release the wrists through impact. Also, with the variety of grip compositions, personal preference is a determining factor.
  • Clubhead Design: With the advent of MOI (Moment of Inertia) importance, this factor has become a big consideration, particularly with higher handicappers. When shots are struck outside the sweet spot, a high MOI reduces twisting at impact, delivering shots closer to the target area.
  • Set Make Up: The new hybrid clubs have given golfers a wider range of choices in the clubs they carry in their bag, their set make up. Numerous lofts and designs in woods, hybrids, irons and wedges make the need for professional custom club fitting more important.
