I need to know...
• Your gender

the floor with your golf shoes on

A one-on-one custom fitting session takes approximately 1 -2 hours
and you will have gained a greater understanding to the importance
of custom-fit equipment to your game. We
ask that you bring your current equipment to help us understand
how your current set has been influencing your game.
True Length Technology®
considers the length and lie relationship to be the single most
important factor in a properly fit set of clubs.
TLT will promote a strong athletic address position where
you are in the proper address position with:
- proper knee bend
- proper spine tilt
- correct hand position
- consistentency for every club
Then the individual has vastly improved their chances of solid
ball contact is the primary factor in a well executed shot.
Length Technology® is a primary factor in setting the golfer
to the correct address position.
a set of clubs properly fit to a consistent address or hand position
then improved playability becomes an immediate result. I've
discussed before that the length increments between 'True Length
Technology®' clubs is less than the traditional 1/2"
and on a non linear scale. No two clubs are cut to the same incrumentation.
The math model is designed
to keep your favourite address and hand position for each club.
Once the proper hand position is established for the individual
then the math model determines the length of every club in your
set based on the lie angle of each individual club.
Some club head designers
have 1/2 degree of lie angle change, some have 1 degree of lie
angle change, and some are in between these parameters.
Yet the most puzzling fact is that they all build in 1/2 inch
length increments. These lengths are not mathematically
correct. The only way to have a proper lie angle is to
the length set correctly - which is less than 1/2 inch per club
based on a 1 degree lie angle change. Please see the 'Understanding Length & Lie' button on the side panel.
length Technology® sets this proper hand position.
math model determines the proper length for every club..
lengths are based on the individual lie angles of each individual
end result is your favourite hand and address positions get to
repeat - shot after shot.
Proper directional control is a
direct function of lie angle. If the toe is up on any club
then the ball flight will have 'back spin' and some 'side spin'.
The more the toe is up - the greater the amount of side spin and
the further off target your ball will be. Ralph Maltby once
described to me that a pitching wedge from 100 yards (with 1 degree
of lie angle deviation) will result in a miss of the intended
target by 22 feet.
Lie angle becomes
less important as the loft decreases, but my personal preference
to be at the target every time. If you need to compensate
by adjusting your aim, then that shot just became much more difficult
as you now have to estimate the effect of the resultant side spin.
This is not something I want to do on any shot.
Custom Golf Shop has the ability to set these loft and
lie angles correctly to each individual. A forged club head
can be adjusted to a greater degree than a cast head so there
are metallurgical properties that limit the amount of adjustment
that can be made on some club heads. Not all heads can be
your existing set to True Length Technology®
Length, loft, lie and swing weight will all have to be measured
to obtain your current set of specifications. Proper wrist
to floor and adjusted wrist to floor measurements will need to
be established. From here a recommended math model can be
determined and recommended changes will be suggested. There are
limitations to all clubheads for loft and lie adjustments plus
Dan's Custom Golf
Shop will do all we can to help correct your set to the
'True Length Technology®' math model. In most cases we can
adjust your lofts and lies but in those cases where the club head
cannot be adjusted due to metallurgical restrictions, the set
still can still be improved for playability by correctly setting
the length based on your current clubs specifications.
Please note that there are specifications that will change in
your set. If the length is extended then the swing weight
will go up, if shortened the swing, weight will go down.
Head weight can be added to a shortened club, but mass cannot
be removed from a lengthened club (unless a weighted tip pin has
been used). Disassemble will be required to remove this
added mass if the resultant heavier swing weight is not desired.
Dan's Custom Golf Shop has
the experience and expertise to optimise your existing set to
the best of our abilities. The improvements in you game will come
naturally due to the fact that your clubs now fit you better than
