Wiz Golf Clubfitting Performance Cycle

Wiz Golf Clubfitting Performance Cycle is a holistic and continual system of performance enhancement iteration. Each cycle includes optimizing your game through the evaluation of equipment and how it affects your bio mechanism, ball impact and ball flight. It may include one or more of a fitting process as highlighted further down the page.

1) Baseline
The first step is to establish a blueprint of your ball flight, equipment and your bio mechanism. This will allow us to identify areas that can be improved.

2) Analyze
Different specifications of the clubs are tested to see how they each affect your ball flight and bio mechanism.

3) Match
Based on data collected in step 1 and 2, an assessment is made on the level of miss-match with your current equipment and recommendation will be made.

4) Optimize
A test club will be built to the specifications derived from the previous steps. Further tuning will be done on the test club to optimize the ball flight/impact and your bio mechanism feedback.

5) Build
With the optimized specifications, our engineers build and match all clubs in the set to our quality and precision standard. Matching a set provides the improvement in consistency in being able to get you to repeat the biomechanics motion of the golf swing and strike the ball on-center a higher percentage of the time, which in turn will translate into greater distance and better accuracy overall.

6) Evaluate
We understand that biomechanics changes over time and as you progress through the game, your equipment needs to be re-fitted in sync with your progress. We encourage all our customers to return for checks and our engineer can tune and make the adjustments.

All fitting and equipment data is instantly available to our customer via our G.O.L.F.E.R Portal. As such, the cycle goes on, as does the continual optimization of your game.

Fitting Processes

Depending on which part of the game we are looking into, the fitting process for the long game (e.g. driver, woods) would differ from how we fit for the putter. Nevertheless, our fitting pricinples remains the same. Fit. Optimise. Build.

Fit

Every golfer is unique and many factors influence what the specs should be. We fit what is right, not what we have for the golfer.

Optimise

Confident shot from one variable less to worry. We optimise the equipment for peak performance for the golfer.

Build

Quality built & matched set of equipment enhance consistency. We build aesthetical & highest quality clubs for the golfer.

Drivers and Woods
We will start with a chat to find out the current problem and what is it that you are trying to improve on. It may be any of Distance, Accuracy, Trajectory, Consistency or Feel. We will take some static measurements of both your existing club and you, e.g. the length, loft, swing weight, total weight, measure the flex and the grip size, and your Wrist to Floor measurement and height. The next step will be dynamic fit. Using Club Connex, we have more than 3000 combination of heads, flex, length and weight combination to fit you with. We will look out for the following: shafts

- Fit for best length. We use impact tape and various length test clubs to observe swing speed and center contact. The length with the most centre contact is the best length for you.

- Fit for best launch angle. We use OptimalFlight to run a couple of simulation to find the best launch angle with an acceptable spin. Knowing the best vertical launch, we will then check your angle of attack and the dynamic loft to advice the best driver loft to suit you.

- Fit for best shaft. We capture your average swing speed, tempo and a high speed video to watch for your release. With these 3 parameters together with weight preference, we match your swing characteristic against our database of more than 600 over shafts' profiles from various shaft manufacturers. These will ensure the best fit regardless of brands or shafts that is available in our centre.

- Fit for best path. Next we’ll see the typical path exhibited. E.g. In to out or out to in. If necessary, we will change the total weight of the club to help influence the path to what you are hoping for.

- Fit for face angle. Direction is 80% influenced by the face angle at impact. To fit for this, we will adjust the head weight by using lead tape (or removable weights on the driver, to help slow down or speed up the closing of the head.

* for path and face angle, an alternative is to use counter weight technologies.

After all the checks and in consultation with you, we will build a pilot club for you to test drive. This will usually be atleast one week later. During the pilot test, we can further fine-tune the club like adjusting swing weight, balance points and grip size and also comparing your new statistic with the old driver.

Irons
Irons fitting are typically done over 3-4 sessions. So be prepared that it will take up to a month to have a set of irons customised.

Like any fitting, we will start with a chat to find out the current problem and what is it that you are trying to improve on. It may be any of Distance, Accuracy, Trajectory, Consistency or Feel. We will take some static measurements of both your existing club and you, e.g. the length, loft, swing weight, total weight, measure the flex and the grip size, and your Wrist to Floor measurement and height. The next step will be dynamic fit. Using Club Connex, we have more than 600 combination of heads, flex, length and weight combination to fit you with. We will look out for the following:

- Fit for best length. We use impact tape and various length test clubs to observe swing speed and center contact. The length with the most centre contact is the best length for you. An alternative is the True Length Technology. You can read about it here.

- Fit for best path. Next we’ll see the typical path exhibited. E.g. In to out or out to in. Using shaft of different weight and length, we will be able to assess the idea weight of the shaft to help influence the path to what you are hoping for.

- Fit for face angle. Direction is 80% influenced by the face angle at impact. To fit for this, we will adjust the head weight by using lead tape to help slow down or speed up the closing of the head. (more on this will be done in the second session)

- Fit for best shaft. We capture your average swing speed, a high speed video to watch for your release and note your vertical launch angle to recommend the best matched shaft for your swing.

After all the checks and in consultation with you, we will build a pilot club for you to test drive. This will usually be a 7 iron and atleast one week later. During the pilot test, we can further fine-tune the club like adjusting swing weight, balance points and grip size and also comparing your new statistic with the old driver. You are free to bring this pilot club out to hit it on the range or even bring it to your next game. When everythings are in order, the rest of the set will be build to the exact specifications. E.g. Frequency matched, MOI/SW matched or spined, if desired. If you get a complete set of irons from us, we will include a gapping service to adjust your loft, say, after 3-4 weeks when you have pretty much got familiar with the new clubs.

* If you are only changing the shafts, we will only include adjustment of lie angle subject to the bendability of your existing irons.

Fitting Stages:

The full fitting process is split into 4 stages.

Stage 1 (Fitting)

  • Baselining your swing and your current equipment
  • Determine the spec for shaft, head and grip Shaft (length, weight, flex, profile) Head (design) Grip (size, type)
  • True Length Technology fitting (if requested)

Stage 2 (Optimization)

  • With actual 6 iron, we will test golfer with different combinations of head weight, butt weight and shaft stabiliser to determine the best total weight and distribution of weights.
  • Determine lie angle.
  • At this time, if there are any spec that needs to be adjusted, it will be confirmed here. E.g. grip size etc.
  • If you need additional butt weights and head weights, they will be included (This is usually valued at $40 per club) except shaft stabiliser.

Stage 3 (Build)

  • Each club in the set is either MOI or SW matched. For MOI matching, we will match to within 1%. For SW matching, they with be matched to 0.5 point.
  • We encourage our clients' iron to be MOI matched. Thus this is our default engineering/build practices unless otherwise stated by client's preference.

Stage 4 (Gapping)

  • After playing the set for awhile, golfer will return for the final stage of the process. Golfer will hit every club in the bag and their loft will be adjusted such that the golfer has consistent distance between each clubs.

We welcome our clients to return every 3-6 months to have their loft and lie checked.

Wedges
Option 1 - Edel Wedge

The Edel wedge fitting system has eight different grinds and bounce options (in order from least bounce to most): sweeper, picker, nipper wide, nipper narrow, pincher, trapper, driver, digger. A typical wedge fitting system takes about 30-45 minutes

Step 1: Players are given a 60 degree sweeper wedge and hit a few 3/4 shots (1/2 to 3/4 shots let the fitter assess ground interaction of the bounce for the player that holds true across a variety of shot types). Then they're handed a picker wedge. And then a nipper wide, a nipper narrow, and on down the line. Impact tape will be used to assess where the bounce/sole interact with the ground.

Step 2: Once the proper grind/sole/bounce is found, the player hits off a lie board again to help determine lie angle and length, and then the player is given a 52 or 56° head in approximately the grind of their preference and asked to hit a variety of shots. The fitter changes out 20+ shafts until the proper spin and launch angle are found for the golfer.

Option 2 - General Wedge Fitting process

We will start with a chat to find out your current iron (eg loft and flex) and what is it regarding wedges that you are trying to improve on. During the session, we record multiple shots with each of your current wedges, similar to an iron fitting. However, here we’re focusing on shot dispersion, distance (gaps between wedges) and back/side spin rate. Once we’ve collected this, we can visually see if you have obvious gaps, whether or not you’re getting too much or not enough spin, and also determine if your shafts are contributing to erratic shot dispersion. From here we can make a recommendation to add gap wedges, or simply increase / decrease the lofts in your current set. Further hitting will be done in different lie, rough, fairway and bunker conditions. This will allow you to test and try out the different bounce and grind options that best suit your swing type. The 5 steps process is as follows:

eidolon

Step 1- Fit for shaft type and flex. Golfers should play wedges that provide a “seamless” transition from their short irons with regards to shaft weight. For example, if you are playing standard weight steel shafts in your irons, we will recommend the KBS a wedge shaft that is also in that range.

Step 2 - Fit for length. Again, there should be connection with your existing iron set. The wedges should typically progress at ¼” increments down to the highest lofted wedge the golfer is going to carry.

Step 3 - Determine Lie Angle. This is a function of length and posture. We will get you to hit, 1/4, 1/2, 3/4 and full swing shot for the wedges to determine if a particular lie is suitable.

Step 4 - Fit for loft (set make-up). The goal is to give you consistent full swing distance gaps of 10-15 yards between their scoring clubs – 8-iron down through the highest lofted wedge to carry.

Step 5 - Fit for bounce, sole width and camber (grind). The last step is to fit you to the correct bounce and grind for your swing and the course condition that you play. We will re-create of the trouble shots that you are likely to encounter and then find a grind/bounce that will help alleviate the trouble.

Putters
Option 1 - Edel's 3 step fitting process

The three-step fitting process of finding the right Edel putter begins with a basic but crucial truth: golfers see differently. Each golfer relies on their eyes to set up a putt, and most golfers – even the best players in the world, touring professionals on the PGA Tour – have imperfect visual aim. The following quick and easy steps provides astute golfers with the tools and customization previously available only to touring professionals.

edel_fitting_cart

Step 1 - Assessment
The first step is to assess a golfer’s aim. The golfer aims at a small laser projector that looks similar to an actual golf hole. When the ball is removed, the laser beam reflects off a mirrored putter face, then the reflected beam projects onto a black screen positioned vertically behind the projector, showing the difference between the golfer’s aim and the actual target.

Step 2 - Personalization
After the golfer’s aim is determined, the second step is to find the right fit, which the fitter has at their side a unique system of up to 273 million component combinations made up of various putter heads, hosels, offsets, lie angles to find the combination that corrects for the golfer’s natural aim.

Step 3 - Creating the putter
Once the right combination is found, as the final step, Edel inputs that information to hand-mill a custom putter that’s a perfect fit for the golfer. Edel craftsmen use a combination of old-fashioned craftsmanship and modern technology, coupled with the best raw materials in the world, to create a putter that feels right, looks great, and is customized with the golfer’s name or other information stamped into the putter.

We are so confident of the results of the custom fitted Edel putter that we promise a money back guarantee*(packaged with AimPoint) on the cost of your putter if you do not see improvements with the new Edel putter. Here is the deal.

 
Option 2 - SAM PuttLab Putter Fitting process

Baseline assessment
The fitting session starts with basic assessment of your existing putter specifications and your preference. This information is entered into the system and might be used during the fitting process, i.e. if a specific aspect is unclear to be decided.

Step 1 - Basic fitting
You will roll 7 putts with your existing putter. SAM Puttlab will examine your aim, path, face on path, rotation and dynamic to recommend the type of grip, head design, shaft configuration. Specifications like length, loft and lie will also be recommended. The loft and lie of your existing putter will be modified as recommended before we proceed to step 2 - dynamic fitting.

samlab-web

Step 2 - Dynamic fitting
You will roll 7 putts with the fitted putter. SAM Puttlab will examine your dynamic loft, dynamic lie, rise angle, path, spot, face and rotation. The result will be verified against the result from step 1, if necessary, your putter will be adjusted further to produced the desired result.

Step 3 - Extended fitting
In extended fitting, you will first roll 5 putts with the fitted putter to determine evaluate tendencies. SAM Puttlab will examine your rotation, hit/swing stroke and rhythm. A recommendation will be made on the head weight and shaft weight. The result will be verified against the result from step 1 and 2 , if necessary, your putter will be adjusted further to produced the desired result.

At the end of the session, all fitting reports with the putter specifications will be sent to you electronically. Here's a sample report of an Extended Measuremen Report and a detail discussion on how to read them.

Ball Fitting
You will hit some balls in front of the Trackman. Data like ball speed, launch angle, backspin, dispersion, carry, total distance will be captured and we feed your results to the AGS software. You'll get a list of recommended balls for distance, accuracy and best overall. See sample. ballfitting
