Playing golf in Mallorca: the importance of fitting
Playing golf in Mallorca has become one of the main tourist attractions for those who visit our island. If you are one of them, and you have in mind to improve your technique to obtain more positive results, you may be interested in knowing what fitting is and how important it is in this sport.
We can define it as a system through which the player undergoes a guided study to find out which clubs are suited to their physical characteristics and style of play. Before making any purchase, we recommend that you do a prior fitting to find out what exactly you need.
In this sense, price is not a good criterion to look at when purchasing your golf clubs. It is more convenient that you value other factors, such as grip, aesthetics, design, and weight of both the club head and the shaft, the lie, or the flexibility and length.
At our golf club in Pollensa, we will tell you about the stages of a fitting
First, we believe it is convenient for you to know the different stages into which this process is divided:
Personal interview. In it, the fitter, the person who will be in charge of completing your study, must collect information related to various aspects: your level of play, your goals, your preferences, the characteristics of the fields in which you usually practice, your physical condition, the flight distance you usually hit, etc.
Static Fitting. At this time you will have to collect some measurements, such as your total height, the distance from your wrists to the ground, your shoulder height, the size of your hands, your weight... These data will help you select the type of grip and shaft length that best suits you.
Dynamic Fitting. The next step will be to analyze your posture, the distance to the ground when you hit, the speed of the ball, the point where you hit, or your type of impact. This will help you conclude the lie and loft angle of the club that best suits you.
Analysis of the flight of the ball. Here the general trend of the trajectory, the hook, the slice, the draw is verified... You will try different clubs to see which is the most suitable combination.
Do not hesitate to go through this procedure before enjoying golf in Mallorca, since fitting will bring you many benefits: it will increase your self-confidence, you will gain distance and precision in your shots and, therefore, it will improve your scorecard.
