GolfTEC's "Precision Matching" approach becomes the new gold standard in club fitting
February 10, 2011 - Denver, Co. Five GolfTEC Improvement Centers were recently named to Golf Digest's list of America's 100 Best Club Fitters. The prestigious list, published annually, recognizes outstanding performance in improvement through equipment. To make the list, locations must be open to the public, have access to clubs made by the top manufacturers and be nominated by a Golf Digest golf course rater, a golf association executive or top golf instructor. The list of America's Best Club Fitters was narrowed down from more than 700 nominees and then published in the February Hot List issue of Golf Digest.
The five GolfTEC Improvement Centers named were: GolfTEC Main Line (Rosemont, PA), GolfTEC Omaha, GolfTEC Cleveland West, GolfTEC Denver Tech Center (Denver, CO) and GolfTEC Honolulu.
"In the last few years there has been a surge of new club technology and today's clubs are amazing, but all of that sophistication only works if the club matches your swing," said Ty Walker, GolfTEC Denver Tech Center Director of Instruction. "The better the match, the more benefit you will receive. Our precision matching system lets us maximize both distance and accuracy in a way that was not possible with just a launch monitor."
GolfTEC recently developed the third generation of club fitting technology, a Precision Matching system that is now the gold standard of fitting. Precision matching involves matching a golfer's swing to a database of laboratory tested clubs and takes in to account many performance variables. This approach represents a quantum leap past the lie boards and launch monitor systems of the past that have several built-in biases. GolfTEC's approach utilizes objective computer analysis to filter through thousands of club options and recommend a few clubs specifically matched to the golfer's swing. After discussing personal preferences and price points, the GolfTEC Coach narrows the options to a couple of options, which are tested in the GolfTEC bay. The clubs are ordered and delivered in about week.
GolfTEC's approach to equipment performance also includes a proprietary Set Analysis Session, which is usually recommended before a club fitting session. In it they review all of the clubs in a golfer's set and check for the 10 most common equipment performance problem areas. Then a software program calculates and flags any concerns.
"Many of our clients have a club they hate to swing, or complain about being between clubs. Our Set Analysis helps us pinpoint the problem areas and prioritize the best correction," said Nick Paez, GolfTEC Cleveland Franchisee. "At GolfTEC, we like to say 'Don't just get new clubs, get new results, and our fact-based approach makes it easier to accomplish that, even with thousands of options available."
