Fitting For Distance – Meandmygolf Weekly

How important is a custom fit driver?  In this week’s Me and My Golf Weekly we analyse how the shaft and loft of your driver can influence your distance.  We also identify the key influences to increase distance off the tee.

    For those who swing the club fast and therefore create high ball speed then the roll distance is a very small proportion of the total distance achieved. Is it not true that for those older or less ca…

    1. Andy

      Hi Andy. Yes the lower swing speeds generally struggle to get the ball more in the air and to produce your optimum distance we are really looking at the carry and total. It does however depend on the …

    Hi guys,
    I’ve always wanted to go for a custom fitting but always found it a bit intimidating and thought that would benefit more a low handicap golfer , however, after watching Fitting for dista…

    Wow. I learnt a lot from this. Bought a
    Taylormade M4 but lowered the loft as I was getting such a high launch. I am going to change back to the higher launch for my distance. By sounds if things it …

    I was fitted for irons a month ago. I actually lost a lot of distance (around 20 yards each club). I originally had 3/4” longer clubs with no lie adjustment. The new clubs are standard length and li…

      Hi Aaron I hope you’re well and I’m glad you’re going back to your fitter. By having the clubs shorter than your used to it could of compromised your strike which could be your big loss in distance. …

    What would be a good setting on an M3 (ie higher/lower loft, spin setting) for someone with a lower swing speed (around 84 mph). I purchased the M3 because of it’s adjustments (and with the release o…

      Hi and thanks so much for your comment. Well first of all you have a great driver. The thing that concerns me is the high shot with slightly slower speeds, we need to make sure the club face isn’t…
