Better Golf Shots By Use of Club Design to Fit Your Individual Swing
We also offer consultation services involving club mechanics and advisement of retail offerings available on the market for those people looking to buy new or used clubs. In other words, we will provide on location technical guidance and advice when buying clubs from retailers. It involves us traveling to the location where you will be buying the clubs (with the exception of online purchases) and reviewing your club choices.
We utilize our technical knowledge to assist you in finding and selecting suitable clubs This involves advice on club dynamics and how club design fits into your level of skill and ability as well as physical attributes or limitations. Each manufacturer has their own engineering, ideas, and design patents. While many designs are similar in appearance, no two will feel or play exactly the same way. They all have different nuances which affect club “playability”. Our knowledge of the “gear effect”, center of gravity, and club design enables us to help you make better choices.
We use our extensive knowledge of the “playability” factor with different golf club to advise you to choose more wisely. Playability means to evaluate golf clubs on the basis of how easy or difficult they are to play for golfers of different skill levels, with clubs ranging from most-forgiving to least-forgiving.
We add in the MPF school of thought to help properly guide golfers for fitting and also when we consult with people buying golf clubs. The Maltby Playability Factor (or MPF) is a rating system developed by golf club designer Ralph Maltby that attempts to rank golf clubs on the basis of how easy or difficult they are to play for golfers of different skill levels. For instance, we know that a cavity back iron with significant perimeter weighting is easier to use than a muscleback blade. The Maltby Playability Factor rates golf clubs along that curve, from easiest to master to most difficult to master.
The Maltby Playability Factor fits clubs into six different categories, ranging from most-forgiving to least-forgiving: Ultra Game Improvement, Super Game Improvement, Game Improvement, Conventional, Classic and Player Classic. Better players will excel with a club from any category; but most golfers will have a better chance of success with clubs from the game-improvement end of the scale.
