Optimizing key components for maximum golf ball distance?
Hello I’m Brad Whalen with KZG Performance Center. Today I wanted to talk to you a little bit about what goes on during a club fit.
This is the TrackMan 4 – Dual Radar. It has two radars in the machine which pick up the club and the ball and it gives us an unbelievable amount of data that we can use to help you optimize your golf clubs.
What I wanted to show you today was the optimizer and show you how we used it to help this gentleman improve his driving distance.
So as we look on the screen the optimizer is showing us in this blue area where we can improve his driver. This is optimal. If we can increase his miles per hour, his ball speed, that may not necessarily happen; he may be maxed out; he may be swinging it as hard as he can. We’ll be able to lower his — this is telling us — if we can lower his launch angle into the blue area, we can pick up distance, lower his spin rate into the blue area. These are the optimals. This gentleman is nowhere near optimal so we tried a different driver. We stiffened the shaft; we lowered the launch angle and we were able to help him increase his driver distance.
We put him into the GF Deep; it’s a low-launching head with 9 degrees of loft; much stiffer shaft and we were able to get four of these five categories into the blue area and he was able to increase his driver distance by 30 to 40 yards.
So next time you’re looking for a driver, come on down and see us at KZG, let’s see where your driver falls and see how we can optimize your distance.
