Basingstoke based 0800SPORTS have opened their new state of the art custom fit golf studio, complete with Trackman swing analysis system as used by all the leading club manufacturers.
Suprisingly 92% of Golfers buy clubs that "just work"....... Only 8% buy clubs that will actually help improve their game, fitted to their own swing style or "signature"!
Why You Need Fitting?
Every golfer has a unique individual swing style creating a set of dynamics we call your signature.
What we do is then use that signature to fit a club in tune so it complements you and feels part of you. Everybody who’s played the game has picked up a club and said that feels good or this club is my favourite. Why? – because it fitted their signature.
What are my numbers?
Golfers all know there shoe, shirt and trouser size but how many know their launch numbers?
By understanding these numbers a player can optimise his or her game to the get the most potential out of their golf swing.
This benefits golfers of all standards not just proficient players. Just think how much better you could be with a 10% improvement!
Every major manufacturer uses Trackman to get the most accurate data for their athletes and you too can now benefit from the best tool in golf.
You can use multiple clubs and shafts to find your optimum launch conditions.
We can even tell you what golf ball either helps you or even worse hurts you.
How The Custom Fit Process Works
Our Custom Fit Technician
You’re only as good as the fitter who helps you understand why something is better and not just “try that” and hope by painting a picture of what actually happens to you under pressure on the course.
Our fitter has over 15 years experience in fitting some of the best and the worst players in golf, his knowledge is recognized as industry leading and will give you an informative look at what best suits your game.
The Journey BeginsThere are certain types of swing that will create an angle of attack that is not applicable to the golfer's body shape and size.
THERE IS NO STANDARD - every player is a blank page at the outset.
The smash factor is a sum of ball speed multiplied by club speed, this is displayed in numbers with 1.50 being the optimum smash factor. If you get a player hitting 1.50 consistently then they have the best club for them. This is only available on some of the better fitting systems.
We look for the best ball flight/shape and this comes from the best launch and spin combination, we are looking for the combination to give us the best distance. For example your average player would be looking to get the ball launching at about 12 degrees and spinning about 3000 rpms. This does depend on ability and style of player.
We are looking for the flex that keeps the player hitting the ball the straightest, if the flex is wrong then the dispersion becomes wider and the shot becomes more inconsistent.
We are looking for the best combination to get the player hitting the ball more consitently, the correct length and lie will get the contact closer to the sweet spot of the club.
At the start of the fit we will measure what you have for:
