The Swing Studio
Poorly fitted golf equipment leads to bad swing habits as you adjust to compensate for your equipment.
Can you afford to play the wrong equipment this year?
Can you leave it another season before you come for that lesson?
For 2015/16 we continue to add new teaching aids to our brand new teaching and Club facility at Helensburgh Golf Club. Fraser has renovated a section of a disused greenkeeper shed and built a state of the art Swing Studio for members & visitors to receive Lessons and Custom Fitting no matter what the weather!
By utilising the latest Flightscope Technology and state of the art slow motion video equipment the team are able to provide all customers with an unrivalled level of product knowledge and service to fix and fit any level of player from Professional to Newcomer.
As the custom fitting pioneer and leader, PING embraces the responsibility of elevating the fitting experience
beyond golfer’s expectations. In creating nFlight, the company’s team of software developers, scientists and fitting experts combined years of product knowledge, scientific data and fitting research into a tool that ensures fitting results never before available in both the indoor and outdoor environments. They developed the industry’s first virtual fitting software to precisely model, digitally analyse and scientifically compare every aspect of every shot it captures.
The simplicity of nFlight relies on numerous and complex equations working within the software to analyze and compare shot characteristics and results. The software is capable of recommending thousands of club combinations. The software’s simulation capabilities go beyond the incredible graphic detail, which includes blowing leaves on the trees and ripples on the water. It factors in the golfer’s typical playing conditions to compensate for any environmental variances. It even considers the type of ball you’re being fit with to ensure accurate results.
nFlight uses PING’s proven multi-step fitting processes for metal woods, irons and wedges to guide the fitter through the process. Familiar concepts such as the interview, static measurements and color code remain part of the process. In addition to providing detailed club specifications, nFlight includes a gapping analysis feature to make full set recommendations. By analyzing data from three clubs hit during the fitting session – typically a hybrid, iron and wedge – the software configures a set to produce proper distance gaps between every club.
In the end, you walk away with complete confidence in the PING Custom Fitting process knowing you’ve been properly fit for the latest advancements in equipment technology.
Fraser offers a variety of different fittings dependant on what area you wish to improve and the team are more than happy to explain the different options and advantages to your game this could have.
