Gerald discusses his fitting method:

  Interview & Performance Profile: The first step is to talk with the customer to become familiar with his skills, his target in golf, his physical background etc. etc. During the interview we are also talking about clubset setup etc. In most case we talk again about setup after finding the right combination (shaft + head).

  •  Evaluation of your Current Equipment: If available, I check the existing equipment. I want to know what’s the favorite club, what’s the worst club. I want to understand what’s the customer is used to play and what he is looking for (more length, accuracy, spin, ….)

  •  Swing/Skills: I’m using a FlightScope Prime to do a deep analyses during the fitting session and to understand the swing and the ballflight hit by the customer. We use different clubheads, different shafts during the session to make the customer understand, what we can do with fitted clubs.

  •  After finding the right combination for the customer I build one testclub with his specifications. With this testclub we verify all data and do a ‘fine tuning’ (adjust swingweight, MOI, first check for lie). Usally this is the moment to agree about the complete setup (which irons, which wedges ?)

  •  Based on the testclub all other clubs will be build. Same flex, length (1/2” increment) and grips.

  •  Post Fit Check Up: The lie adjustment is the last thing we do. I check each club and adjust each club seperatly.
