There are 5 categories of golf clubs that we need to look at individually since we use them differently. For instance, drivers are hit from a tee; many wedge shots are hit softly for chips and pitches along with sand shots. Fairway metals and hybrids are usually hit with a sweeping style swing and irons are usually hit with a down and through swing. Putters have entirely different needs to work their best. The book explains the specific performance factors of each of these categories, which allows for a better understanding of putting the right club the one that fits into the golfer’s hands.
The information in these sections has never been published before and provides valuable insights into helping golfers play better. Section 11 is all about putters and putter fitting (75 pages). Section 12 is all about wedges and wedge fitting (62 pages). Section 13 is all about drivers and driver fitting (47 pages).
Appendix 2 is all about golf ball fitting and how to find the right golf ball for your game. Throughout the book, there are charts, fitting score cards and other fill-in forms that help analyze a golfer’s game. They can be used for self analysis or by golf professionals and clubfitters. You are free to copy them. They also have been collected from throughout the book and conveniently placed in Appendix 8 so they are easier to find when you need them.
