Brad Whalen Club Analysis
Why do golfers need custom fitted golf clubs? Here at KZG Performance Center, we have some of the world’s best Custom Fitters available to help you improve your game.
Hi there. I’m Brad Whalen from KZG Performance Center, master club fitter at our new Palm Desert location and we’re here to talk to you today about our club analysis section — why we do it, how we do it and what it does for us and the golfer.
What we do here, is we try and find the current specs of our customer’s golf clubs. What it does for us is it gives us ideas and clues as to what we’re going to do in the club fitting. It also helps us find which clubs that they hit good, which ones they hit bad and it shows us all the discrepancies and problems that they’re going to have with their mass-produced golf clubs.
What we’re going to do here is we’re going to tweak one of these golf clubs and I’m going to show you how this is done. We’ve clamped it into the clamp — graphite shafted driver. We give it a pull to make sure that it’s flowing good. Click the reset button and this tells me that this is 244 cycles on a 45-inch shaft. What we do from there is we’re going to chart that on my little frequency chart, here. What we’ve got here is one I’ve prepared earlier, just like the cooking shows.
What we find is that instead of the shafts running on a nice solid line, they end up being all over the place which is no good for the golfer. They’ve got some clubs that are extra stiff in this bag and some clubs that are regular and these were all the same set. They were built and designed and fit for this golfer. So this isn’t going to help them at all.
Our goal is to find out from this which clubs he hits good so that will be starting point when we start our club fitting session.
Here at the KZG Performance Center, we believe that custom fitting and the final build are both equally as important and we want you to come down and see us and we can show you how we can better help your game.
