10 questions to ask yourself before assembling a golf club

10. What is the weakest area of ​​your game?

This may sound pretty bad but with many of these questions it’s about being honest with yourself and telling the installer.

Whether it’s your wedge game, hitting the ball or the longest clubs in the bag, it’s in your best interest to tell the installer why they’re trying to help your golf game.

9. Where do you play?

This is very important to consider because either you will play a lot of golf in a variety of places, or you will tend to focus on a golf course.

If you fall into the latter course, then you need to think about the needs of that golf course. Whether it’s the wind, the lawn, the layout or countless other course conditions, it is worth telling this knowledge to your installer.

8. Are you taking lessons and your handicap is decreasing?

We all play golf to improve, but this question refers to how seriously you are taking the task.

It may be that the professional who advises you at that time is also someone who advises you on any changes of equipment so that they work in harmony with any change of oscillation that you are trying to do.

At that point it also makes sense to adapt to bats that can be adjusted so that they adapt better to your swing when it changes.

7. How important is the appearance and atmosphere of the golf club to you?

To some extent we all want a set of clubs that look good in the bag, but much more important is the address look. Do they forgive you and inspire you with confidence? If so, your swings with those clubs are likely to be better than any alternative.

Another thing to note is about feeling. If you train indoors, it is rather difficult to get an idea of ​​the differences in sensitivity, it is much easier outside. Therefore, if the feeling is very important to you, we recommend that you ask to hit the clubs outside too just to get an idea of ​​the sound and the sensation.

Giving the installer as much information as possible is vital

6. Is the makeup of the set likely to change?

This stems from the fact that modern irons are becoming stronger in the attic, which can cause problems in the gap especially in the bottom of the bag.

Therefore, if you are gearing up for the irons, you may need to make changes to the top and bottom of the bag to make sure that the gap measurements are to your liking.

5. Do you have a consistent form of shooting or do you prefer to hit different types of shots?

This is very important because it can have a huge impact on the irons with which you move away in particular.

If you like to hit different shots with your irons, then tell the installer, and likewise if you have a fairly consistent form of shot, it is also worth telling the installer. The more information you have provided, the better the result.

4. How much are you willing to spend?

Before going on a fitting, understand what your budget is and the only way to do it is to do some research on prices, reviews and other information.

At Golf Monthly we test the vast majority of golf clubs in our review section of the website so it’s worth a look.

Also, it is worth noting the after-market actions and trees offered only to avoid nasty surprises when it comes time to pay.

3. What would make a major difference to your score: hitting the ball further or straighter?

This is especially important when training in the woods. In a fitting, the odds are of hitting the ball further because the installers are very good at making more yards, but it’s worth keeping in mind if you believe that greater precision can make a difference, so tell your installer.

2. What is your favorite shot?

Another vital information concerns the shot you play when you need it most. For this reason we advise you to imagine yourself in the hardest hole of the course you play most often and think about the swing and the shape of the shot you want to do in that hole.

During assembly try to recreate it and put some pressure on your shoulders. So hit that shot just to get an idea of ​​how comfortable you are when you try to hit your header.

1. Where do you miss most?

This is probably the most important question you need to ask yourself.

If you are more likely to miss the right or left, or vice versa, tell the installer because he can do something about the club setup to help.
