Club Fitting

We offer a service of specialised golf club fitting of woods, irons and putters for our clients at The Knightsbridge Golf School. We are always trying to make golf as enjoyable as possible for you, so by using the correct golf equipment you will be able to have more fun at this wonderful game.

One of the most important factors to successful golf is having a golf swing which repeats itself. We believe the golf swing you are taught at The Knightsbridge Golf School is easy for you to repeat. With our Callaway Fitting Centre we have the best tools to fit the correct golf clubs to the swing we are teaching you. This we feel is an essential marriage. It makes sense to have golf clubs dynamically fitted to you by your experienced golf coach as only he knows what golf fundamentals you should have and the swing shape you should have for you to achieve optimal ball striking and accuracy. Remember you cannot hit the ball where you would like without making fundamental or swing compensations if your clubs do not fit you.

We also offer a warm and relaxed atmosphere for you to practice in and along with our wide range of golf equipment, premium golf balls and our Vector launch monitor which gives us ideal conditions to achieve more accurate results when fitting and testing golf equipment compared to being out on the golf course or on a driving range.

Flight Scope

We have now installed state-of-the-art FlightScope tracking radar. This is the next generation 3D club and ball tracking radar that allows us to measure and see swing, club and ball data on a computer screen.

FlightScope is an ideal tool for custom club fitting as it provides accurate ball flight and club travel information, rather than only launch data as provided by most other instruments on the market. To optimize shaft selection, the Acceleration Profile provided by FlightScope makes it easy to determine when players are fitted with the correct shaft for their specific swing and loading of the shaft during the swing. The Acceleration Profile measured by FlightScope provides an instantaneous measure of the quality of the golf shaft fit for the player being tested.

Common Problems that Often Occur When Irons Do Not Fit You Correctly

If the golf club does not fit accurately you will make compensations and change some of your “fundamentals” which are: club head aim, grip, ball position, stance, posture, body alignment or your swing in order for you to get the results you need. Not to mention it is very difficult to repeat any of these compensations.

Here is an example of a golf club which does not fit and the possible compensations a golfer would make in order to get the results he/she may require.

Golf Club Too Flat

This causes the toe of the club to make more contact with the ground at impact which then would cause the club face to open and your golf ball to fly to the right.

Possible compensations are:

  1. Closing, hooding the clubface at address which will also cause your short irons to fly longer
  2. Strengthening your grip at address
  3. Changing your body alignment to aim more left of your target
  4. The player would swing more out to in, more towards the left of the target
  5. Player tends to lose balance forward or on the toes
  6. Missed iron shots tend to be towards the toe of the golf club
  7. The player has difficulty using blade irons, prefers perimeter weighted clubs.

Here are 13 other examples of golf club specifications which may not be suited to you.

  1. Golf club too upright
  2. Golf club too long
  3. Golf club too short
  4. Shaft too whippy
  5. Shaft too stiff
  6. Grip too thick
  7. Grip too thin
  8. Clubhead causing ball to fly too high
  9. Clubhead causing ball to fly too low
  10. Kickpoint of shaft too low
  11. Kickpoint of shaft too high
  12. Golf clubs too heavy
  13. Golf clubs too light.
