How a Custom Golf Club Maker Can Improve Your Game

By Steve Silverman

Custom clubs are a huge investment. However, for a serious golfer custom-made clubs can pay dividends for years. In addition to getting an extraordinary fit, the club maker will custom your clubs to suit your game. If you are a long hitter who sometimes sprays to all fields, your club maker will give you stiff shafts to help you keep the ball in the fairway.

Shaft Length

The custom club maker's first job is to make sure you get golf clubs that fit. If you are between 5-foot-11 and 6-foot-1, standard 48-inch shafts may be just what you need. However, you may have longer arms and the 48-inch shafts won't work for you. The club maker will see how you address the ball and swing the club and come up with the right length for your swing.

Shaft Flexibility

If you are a player who hits the ball accurately but struggles for distance, the club maker can give you flexible shafts that will help you get more clubhead speed at impact. If you are a big hitter who struggles for accuracy, stiff shafts will suit your game.

Forgiving Club Heads

If you are a golfer who tends to swing hard and may not always hit the "sweet spot," you need forgiving heads. A custom club maker will make sure you get clubs with a large sweet spot to help you get the most out of your game.
