About the Pro-Fit System

The Pro-Fit Clubfitting System is an excellent method to properly fit any golfer to any type of golf equipment. Regardless of your height or body type, getting the proper shaft type, shaft flex, proper lie angle, and clubhead style are all significant features that will help to maximize your game. Knowing that your clubs fit you perfectly, allows you to play your best and improve your game.

Do I need the Pro-Fit Clubfitting System?

Q: I am only an average golfer - why should I need custom-fitted clubs?
A: You need custom-fitted clubs because:
1. Custom-fitted clubs are tuned to your playing ability and swing speed so that your energy is efficiently used.
2. Once clubs are fitted properly, one can concentrate their effort on improving the golf swing, therefore, improving their game.

Benefits of the Pro-Fit System

Why buy precision-built clubs?

Well, buying golf clubs is like buying jogging can purchase the wrong size and still walk, but the correct size sure feels better! By the same token, you might be able to play with any set of clubs, but individually fitted clubs perform better!

In over 15 years of professional clubfitting, too many times have we seen players struggling to improve because of clubs that are too heavy/light, too long or short, too stiff or flexible, too flat or upright.

Did you know that with the Pro-Fit System our master clubmakers evaluate (15) fitting variables.

  • Set composition
  • Club length
  • Loft/lie angle
  • Club head design
  • Shaft frequency-flex
  • Shaft material
  • Flex-point
  • Torque
  • Shaft bend/balance point
  • Overall club balance point
  • Total club gram weight
  • Grip weight/size/material
  • Your handicap
  • Your frequency of play
  • Your physical make-up

  • In practically all cases, the quality of materials (i.e. titanium, 17-4/15-5 steel, graphite, etc.) is exactly the same, and sometimes even better in our premium golf clubs vs. brand name clubs. You can save hundreds of dollars when you purchase clubs from ProSeries Golf. A major cost to brand-name manufacturers is for their multi-million dollar advertising and marketing budgets.

    At ProSeries Golf, our top professionals will make sure your golf clubs are fitted and built with precision and attention to every detail. All premium built orders are shipped within 7-12 days.

    We also understand that if you are a beginner and not familiar with much of the golf terminology that is required when selecting clubs, then please call 1.866.560.4653 and speak with one of our fitting professionals.

    • Shaft Selection Guide

      The following is a guide that will assist in diagnosing where your game needs support and how the various shafts we carry can aid you. We are confident you will find a shaft on our website that suits your needs no matter what your level of play.

      Do you hook or pull the ball? Try using a stiffer shaft, a shaft with a higher kick point or a shaft with less torque.

      Do you slice or push the ball? A more flexible shaft may solve your problem. Also, a shaft that is less tip stiff, or has a lower kick point may be a good start as well.

      Do you hit the ball too high? Use a stiffer shaft that is tip stiff, or has a higher kick point.

      Do you hit the ball too low? Try using a more flexible shaft or one that is less tip stiff.

      Is your accuracy inconsistent? A stiffer shaft will probably help, especially with a high kick point.

      Are you experiencing miss-hits? Notice a difference immediately by increasing the overall weight with a heavier shaft, or consider a less stiff shaft.

      Are you losing distance? Try decreasing your overall weight with a lighter shaft, or a more flexible shaft.

      *Shafts will not correct swing deficiencies. Please see your PGA professional for swing analysis.

      Player Analysis - Professional Fitting Evaluation

      Welcome to the Pro-Fit fitting program. This is the most complete and comprehensive program ever put together. By combining past, present, and the newest technology, Pro-Fit provides the exact club specifications for each golfer. This "system" establishes the needs of the individual for the full range of clubs - not just for a driver only, as some other fitting systems do.

      This program will truly match a player and clubs together properly. Common sense indicates that different player abilities and swing styles need different club specifications.

      Practical Grip Fitting Guide
      Grip size is determined by glove size. The grip is the only contact the golfer has with the golf club. Fitting for the correct grip size is done on the basis of comfort on feel. Fact: Grip size should be a factor and feel. If a golfer is not comfortable with the size of the grip, the forearm muscles will contract and tighten in response to the lack of comfort. With tight forearm muscles as the swing begins, it is much more difficult to initiate a smooth consistent takeaway and delivery. While golfers use many different "swing keys" to produce a smooth rhythmic swing, a smooth takeaway is a virtual must to generate a consistent repeating swing tempo.

      Proper club length should promote consistent ball striking with the ball to the center of the clubface. Poor relation of club length will result in many deep divots (fat shots) or hitting the ball low in the face (thin shots.) Proper club length is a combination of two variables: height and arm length.

      Club Length Chart
      Remember that there is no perfect length, many golfers fall between two parameters on the chart. It is recommended that most golfers play as close to 38 inches (5 iron) as possible.

      Lie Angle, A Key To Club Fitting
      The lie angle of a golf club can affect both the direction and trajectory of a golf ball in flight. In fitting golf clubs, the primary influence of lie angle is related to direction. The proper setting of the lie angle is an important key to golf club fitting. If this is not done properly, THE GOLFER MAY AS WELL BUY CLUBS OFF-THE-RACK; THERE IS NO FIT!

      If a club is too upright, it means that the toe of the club is higher than the heel. An upright lie angle will cause the golfer to pull or hook shots to the left of the target. If it is too flat, it means that the heel of the club is higher than the toe. A flat lie angle will cause the golfer to push or slice shots to the right of the target. Clubs with improperly set lie angles will be the root of many golf swing problems. The golfer learns to adjust and make swing compensations to overcome such deficiencies. Because of these factors, the proper lie angle for an individual golfer CAN ONLY BE DETERMINED DYNAMICALLY WHEN THE GOLFER STRIKES A GOLF BALL WITH THEIR NORMAL GOLF SWING.

      If you are a male golfer between 5'8" and 6'0" in height,you probably do not need any lie angle adjustment. The same applies for females between 5'2" and 5'6" in height. The last item of note is the concept of combining shaft length adjustments with lie angle adjustments. For instance, if you are 6'4" and would like your shafts 1/2" longer than standard, then you have less need for the lie angle adjustment. In other words, as you shorten or lengthen the shaft, the lie angle will become more standard for you. Taller golfers generally need a club to be more upright and shorter golfers will need a flatter lie angle.


      Commonly asked questions about the Pro-Fit System.

      Q: What is frequency?
      Frequency refers to how often an event occurs. In the case of golf clubs and more specifically, golf shafts, the rate refers to cycles per minute.

      Q: What is the frequency in golf clubs?
      The frequency of a golf club refers to how many times a club will vibrate per minute when put in motion.

      Q: How does frequency relate to flex in a golf club?
      Frequency is a direct correlation to the stiffness of the golf shaft. The stiffer the shaft the higher the frequency.

      Q: How can knowing the frequency of a golf club help me buy the correct golf club?
      This is actually a two part answer. First, knowing the frequency of the golf club will enable every club within a set to precisely match the other clubs. Secondly, the frequency of a golf club relates directly to the length of the golf club. Each golf club throughout a set will vary in length just as it varies in loft angle. In order to maintain a constant stiffness throughout a set of golf clubs, the frequency must increase as the length of the club decreases. This process will insure each of your clubs are precisely the correct stiffness for your swing.

      Q: Why is shaft selection so important?
      If you think of your golf club as a car, the clubhead is merely the body, while the shaft is actually the engine that drives the car. The performance of any club can be changed tremendously by changing the shaft. This can be for the better or for the worse.

      Q: What causes a slice (left to right ball flight) or a hook (right to left ball flight)?
      A slice is caused by an open clubface at impact, while a hook is the result of the face being closed at impact. However, there are a multitude of grip, stance, and swing flaws that can cause either of these to happen. It is important to know your typical ball flight and choose your clubs wisely. For the slicer, we recommend trying a clubhead with a more closed face angle (i.e. choose a driver that is square rather than 1 - 2 degrees open.) If you hook the ball, however, choose a driver that is 1 degree open rather than square.

      Q: Why is titanium so much better than steel?
      Titanium is significantly lighter and stronger than steel. It allows the clubhead to be larger and more forgiving, which translates into faster clubhead speed and increased distance.

      Q: What is the difference between graphite and steel shafts?
      Graphite is lighter and more flexible, thus creating more distance. It also absorbs more shock and vibration for golfers with tendonitis or other muscular problems. However, steel will almost always offer greater control of distance and trajectory, which means more accuracy.

      Q: Why is shaft flex important in a golf club?
      Shaft flex refers to the shafts resistance to bending when subjected to a longitudinal force.
