Player Interview

The Player  Interview  is the method for obtaining from the Golfer which of the five shot making performance factors of Distance, Accuracy, Trajectory, Spin and Feel they are having the most problems with and which the wish to address and improve. In addition, the Player Interview is used to obtain information such as the Current Set Makeup, Game Improvement Goals, Player Product Preferences, Physical Limitations, Ball Striking Tendencies, Fitting Expectations etc.

The Fitting process is individualized with attention to the specific needs of the Player and follows the format outlined below.

Equipment Evaluation


Club Specifications will be measured and reviewed for inconsistencies. The values for Length, Loft, Lie Angle, MOI, Grip Size, Swing Weight, Total Weight etc. are all measured. A composite view can provide helpful hints into some of the issues that a player may be experiencing with Distance, Accuracy, Trajectory, Spin or Feel or other issues determined as a result of the interview. This Baseline Equipment Evaluation also provides a guide as to what specifications need to be changed in the new clubs to have a real effect on making a change in the desired shotmaking performance factors.

Fitting Equipment


The Player is introduced to the various measuring devices used in the Dynamic portion of the Fitting. The Fitting Equipment is displayed at the bottom of this page. The player will be given a short briefing on the performance of each item.

Dynamic Fitting

The overriding theme at FS Golf is to improve the Players Consistency and to Reduce Miss Hit Tendencies through the best combination of Club heads, Club Shafts and Grip Specifications. The Flight Scope 3D, Phased Array, Doppler Radar and High Speed Video are used as support items during the Dynamic Phase of the Fitting. FS Golf has over 400 Clubheads & Shafts with an inter-changeability capability.

There are no one set of rules that apply to all Players and there is no one set of Standard Specifications that can be produced in the Golf Equipment Industry that will allow a Player to achieve their maximum potential. That is why the Fitting is essential to the Players success. As Tom Wishon has stated "the quality of Custom Fittingis measured by where you can go to achieve the highest level of visible, immediate game improvement and that is not going to be attained at your local big box store, pro shop or on line." Why? Because the potential for immediate game improvement through custom fitting requires each Golfer to be Fit Individually for all 13 of the key Specifications listed below.

90% of all Golfers by clubs based on Price, Brand, Color, Impulse or Marketing Hype regardless of whether or not the clubs fit their playing capability or swing profile. Before you spend your $$$, get FIT and know what it is that you need to play your best golf.
