But a golf club that fits well has the ability to significantly help you with hitting the golf ball more solidly and accurately. The custom golf club fitting chart goes a long way in fixing the golf clubs to scale down most of your golfing errors.

Custom golf club fitting service is provided by all golf equipment retailers. But the only disadvantage of this service is that you have to go all the way to the retailers’ fitting center or you’re stuck with using golf equipment from only one brand.

So it’s important to acquire extensive knowledge about this particular subject yourself. This way your options are not limited and that’s something we all love in the game of golf, isn’t it?

Factors you need to consider for golf club fitting chart

Some basic measurements and an easy, quick self-evaluation of your game are the two tasks that must be performed when custom fitting golf clubs.

While there are several golf club fitting techniques used in the game of golf, more than half of them have a lot in common in many ways. And these are the methods that are considered to be one hundred percent effective, accurate, and simple.

The factors that you need to know before custom fitting your golf clubs:

  • Your age
  • Your gender
  • ​Your height with socks or stockings
  • ​Your skill level or handicap
  • Your swing speed
  • ​The amount of distance from your wrist till the floor (with no shoes)
  • What type of golf club you use for the 150-yard marker

As far gender is concerned, golf equipment manufacturing companies have different standard measurements for women and men. So gender is a factor that sets you into the proper and accurate fitting scale.

The golf club fitting chart largely depends on the length of the golf clubs, right? So if you want to know how to measure golf club length then you have to know your height as well the amount of distance from your wrist till the floor (with no shoes and in inches).

It’s only logical that a shorter golfer will require comparatively shorter golf clubs than a tall golfer with longer arms. But around 80% of players use golf clubs of standard length.

You should know that the length of golf clubs has a starting point that varies up till three and a half inches. And this length can range from women’s minus one inch to men’s plus one and a half inch.

The remaining factors such as your age, skill level or handicap, swing speed and the type of golf club you use for the 150-yard marker all combine together to help you decide the shaft flex.

Determining the shaft flex that is best suitable for you and your golfing skills is very important in the game of golf. So get all your measurements right to play with the most appropriate shaft flex.

Shaft Length

In the game of golf, your height plays a major role in determining the shaft length. Short golfers play with comparatively shorter golf clubs than tall golfers, right? And you use a metal wood, then the level of your golfing skill will decide whether you need the added length or not.

For golfers who struggle with achieving a firm contact, using a shorter driver will increase the distance. On the other hand, the length of the putter entirely depends on the golfer’s posture and hand position during contact. Look at the chart below to find out your correct shaft length.

Driver loft selection depending on your swing speed

In order to achieve a flawless launch angle, you must select the correct driver loft. Just remember that a perfect launch angle has the ability to increase distance (why a driver fitting is important in golf).

The golfer’s velocity and club head speed play a huge role in determining the maximum launch angle. And this ranges from 12 to 15 degrees.

So “what is the best driver loft for me?” is what you’re wondering, right? See below.

  • 60 to 70 mph (165 yards or less) = 12-15 degrees of loft
  • 70 to 80 mph (165 to 200 yards) = 11-13 degrees of loft
  • ​80 to 90 mph (200 to 240 yards) = 10-12 degrees of loft
  • ​90 to 100 mph (240 to 275 yards) = 9-11 degrees of loft
  • 100 mph + (275+ yards) = 8-10 degrees of loft
