    Frequently Asked Questions

How will being fitted for clubs improve my game?

"Off-the-rack" golf clubs are made to standard specifications configured to fit the average golfer with average specifications. Unless you fit this narrow zone of what a manufacturer considers average, you're constantly compensating for clubs that don't match your body or your golf swing. Custom fit golf clubs maximize the characteristics of YOUR individual golf swing, which will allow you to get the most success and enjoyment. Remember: every professional golfer has their clubs fitted and you should too. Stop working for your golf clubs and have your golf clubs start working for you!

What are the characteristics that affect club fitting?

The PGA Professionals at Man O' War Golf use their expertise, launch monitor technology and multiple testing methods to determine the clubs that will help you to get the most out of your game.

We'll test the following:

  • Shaft Length
  • Lie Angle
  • Shaft Flex
  • Shaft Type
  • Grip Size
  • Golf Club Head Design
  • Set Make-Up

What does a Launch Monitor test?

Every golfer has a set of golf swing attributes that can be measured and maximized. The launch monitor captures this information as you try different clubs.

In order to maximize your distance and control, you need to know which clubs maximize the following:

  • Club Head Speed
  • Ball Speed
  • Launch Angle
  • Spin Rate
  • Carry Distance
  • Total Distance

How long does a club fitting take?

A thorough club-fitting usually lasts about 45 minutes to one hour. Club fittings can be scheduled for any day of the week by simply calling the Man O' War Golf Shop at 859-259 - GOLF (4653).

Why Club Fittings on the Internet DON'T WORK!

Each golf swing is unique, much like a fingerprint. Golf club manufacturers continue to develop clubs that match different swings. How do you know if their technology matches your swing? Unless you are evaluated by an experienced club-fitting professional you may never purchase the clubs that are right for you. Furthermore, you may never know what kind of golfer you can really be!

When you are custom fit for a set of golf clubs by a highly trained professional, you will be armed with information to make a wise investment decision, which will help you to get the maximum benefit from your purchase.
