Club Fitting

Our details are huge difference makers when comparing custom fitting/building to other methods of buying golf clubs. Our ideology is the key to your success; it’s both the fit and build that matter.


Engineered Golf utilizes sophisticated launch monitor technology, high speed video and Dynamic Loft & Lie Testing to see where the ball is contacting the clubface at impact.

We have an extensive inventory of interchangeable heads and shafts - well over 45,000 possible combinations.  That provides the best possible solution for achieving the perfect fit.  It enhances both your game and your pleasure.

At Engineered Golf, we investigate twenty-three areas to help you improve distance, accuracy, consistency, trajectory and feel.

Here are twenty-one specifications of a golf club that are examined.

  1. Loft – to get the correct trajectory and distance.
  2. Lie – crucial for accuracy, especially in the “scoring” clubs.
  3. Bulge for woods & hybrids – affects the control of off-center shots.
  4. Roll for woods and hybrids – important for effective launch angle.
  5. Face Angle for woods and hybrids – can help tremendously with a slice or hook.
  6. Sole Angle – important to get right so you don't bury your wedges.
  7. Offset – helps with squaring the clubface at impact and increasing launch angle.
  8. Head design and material – get the correct design for your particular needs.
  9. Shaft Flex – we match the flex profile to your swing speed, tempo, and release.
  10. Shaft Torque – avoid a shaft that feels too stiff or flexible.
  11. Shaft Weight – get the weight correct and it matches your natural tempo.
  12. Shaft Spine Alignment – we ensure the spine is aligned during assembly.
  13. Shaft Bend Profile – get the correct profile to help with the desired ball flight and feel.
  14. Shaft Material and Design – graphite, steel or composite.
  15. Grip Size – the only point of contact with the club, it has to feel right.
  16. Grip Weight – better consistency and feel.
  17. Grip Material – feel and performance.
  18. Club Length – the most crucial factor for consistent on-center hits.
  19. Club MOI – an MOI matched set means the same swing effort for each matched MOI group of clubs.
  20. Club Weight – match your strength and swing characteristics for more control.
  21. Set Make Up - tailor a custom set for you to maximize your potential.

In almost every true custom club fitting , at least 10 of the above variables are involved. However, at Engineered Golf, we recognize and use two more. These 2 variables are also critically important to your successful, true custom club fitting. They are; fitting you for golf club feel, and an evaluation of your golf swing. We may determine that you need to work on swing changes through lessons from a CPGA professional. If not, then we can use some of the major club fitting variables to improve your performance, without changing your swing.


What are the benefits of a Professional or True Custom Fitting?  It's a fitting performed by a Professional Clubfitter from the AGCP.  Curious?  Then I invite you to explore further by reading more from my fellow AGCP clubfitter - Bert Reich of Gooder Golf - from Saskatchewan.  Bert and I follow the exact same fitting/building philosophy & principles.  Click on the AGCP icon below.

The Fitting Process

Engineered Golf fits golfers. We fit for size, strength and athleticism regardless of age or gender. Our goal is to improve your game and enjoyment of golf.


Player Interview

Before we start hitting golf balls, we're going to ask you to complete a questionnaire and then we'll review it together. Why? Well it's a method for us to obtain baseline information on numerous important items. We ask you about your current set makeup, game improvement goals, if you have any strong product preferences, any physical limitations, ball striking tendencies, fitting expectations, etc. With that information, we'll have insight into areas of emphasis or concern.

Measuring Equipment

Following the interview discussion, we can provide a tour showing you the equipment that will be used during the fitting and building processes.  We can show and describe the purpose of such items as frequency analyzers, MOI Speed Match scale, swing weight scale, the Flightscope Launch Monitor and the various clubs, grips and recording equipment.  We will establish a baseline to measure the fitting decisions for improvement.  The precision of our equipment, our extensive training  and experience, guarantees that your clubs are blueprinted and built exactly to specification!

Dynamically match your golf clubs.  This is a big step beyond statically matching using the swingweight method.


Your current club specifications are measured, recorded and reviewed for inconsistencies. Items such as length, loft, lie angle, MOI, grip size, swing weight, total weight etc., are all measured. We assess and review all of your club data with your questionnaire responses.  This can provide helpful hints into some of the issues that the player is experiencing.  The baseline also provides a starting point for further modifications or changes.  That could be in either your current club set or a new set of clubs that are to be built.

Dynamic Fitting

Engineered Golf's goal is to improve the player's consistency and reduce their tendency for mishits. We'll determine the best combination of clubhead, shaft and grip specifications. This will help to improve center contact strikes.

The importance of consistent center hits is distance and accuracy. If you miss the center only 1/4″ you can lose 15% of your carry distance with a driver.  Off center hits can cause fades or draws that turn the ball offline and off target. To drive it longer and more accurately you need to hit the center of the face with every swing.

The outcome we want is getting the ball flying in the intended direction. The fitting is all about enhanced modification of your ball flight and feel. It will yield your best combined results for distance, accuracy, trajectory, and consistency.

improving impact through clubfitting

There is no one set of rules that applies to everyone.  Likewise there isn't a solitary set of standard specifications that can be produced for your golf equipment that will allow you to achieve your maximum potential.  To determine your requirements, the following measurements are taken:


  • Head Speed
  • Ball Speed
  • Carry Distance
  • Total Distance
  • Spin Rate
  • Swing Characteristics
  • Launch Angle
  • Angle of Attack
  • Swing Path
  • Swing Plane

  • Flight Time
  • Angle of Descent
  • Shaft Acceleration
  • Club Length
  • Club Weight
  • Club Face Angle
  • Lie Angles
  • Grip Composition & Size
  • Video Analysis


Fitting’s at Engineered Golf cover up to 27 unique items depending on your needs or requirements.  Data for each of the above items is presented in graphic or visual form and your record is kept on file.


Our testing is not a random process. It follows the orderly procedure, for all swing speeds, of:

  1. getting the length right;
  2. establish the correct weight(s) including for grip weight/size , (sets MOI & swingweight);
  3. for woods/hybrids – zero in on correct loft;
  4. move on to flex profile;
  5. then torque resistance;
  6. followed by head shape/size/face angle;
  7. then alternate between grips within the same weight and diameter class;
  8. revisit head characteristics for any change or slight improvement;
  9. and lastly, establish the butt flex rating.

Get the right length, weight, (and lofts for woods), and you will see an immediate difference. Once you are hitting in the center of the face or as close to center as possible (maybe because of a slight swing problem), 80% of the fitting is complete.

However, a true custom fitting will include Items 4 through 8.  Tweak for shaft bend profile, flex, and face angle for best accuracy.  This last part will include testing a few different shafts for shaft bend profile, flex, and torque resistance, and maybe a couple different heads for loft and face angle.  We finalize testing and use the club as a template to exactly match and confirm each of the 21 variables are in place on your final build.

Our details are huge difference makers when comparing true custom fitting/building to any other method of buying golf clubs.  Engineered Golf's fitting process is the key to your success.  It's not the brand, model, cost and certainly not the marketing hype; it's the fit that matters.
