GETTING FIT FOR IRONS IN 2018

Hello my name is Todd Pallis and I have been fitting golfers for the last 32 years at our Plaza Golf store in Torrance California. In January 2017 and again now in 2018 Golf Digest Magazine has named me as one of America’s Top 100 Best Club Fitters. I have been a three time PING regional fitter of the year for the years 1999, 2007 and again in 2012 and Top 100 Fitter in 2017 for PING. I have been a Top 100 club fitter for Mizuno, Titleist and others. I currently work with 2 PGA Tour players, 4 LPGA Tour Players, 2 Web.com Tour players, Japan Tour, Canadian, Asian Tour players along with numerous Division 1 College, Top High School and up and coming junior golfers who all benefit from my “Hanging Method”. I also get certified with numerous companies clubs like Titleist, Callaway, Ping, Mizuno and others.

IF YOU ARE GOING TO BUY A NEW SET OF IRONS, DRIVER, WEDGES OR A PUTTER YOU NEED TO BE FIT TO GET THE MOST OUT OF YOUR CLUBS.

AS AN EXAMPLE IF YOU WANT A SET OF MIZUNO IRONS YOU HAVE 28 SHAFTS AVAILABLE TO YOU AT NO UPCHARGE. FOR YOU TO COME IN AND GUESS YOURSELF YOU MAY AS WELL GET A ROULETTE WHEEL WITH 28 CHOICES AND SPIN THE WHEEL. THE SMART MONEY IS GETTING FIT THE RIGHT WAY.

TO GET FIT CORRECTLY

1. We need to determine the proper flex, weight and kick-point of the shaft and whether you need graphite or steel. I use the Mizuno Shaft Optimizer to help us find the proper shaft for your irons. Its based on your Club head speed, Tempo, Toe Down, Kick Angle of the shaft and how you Release to determine the proper weight, stiffness and kick point of the shaft. We will then test the recommend shafts of at least three different shafts using the data from a”Launch Monitor” to determine which shaft is best.

2. I will fit you for length based on height and by your wrist to ground static measurement to get a general idea of the proper length and lie.

3. Need to determine the exact lie angle that is best for you. We will do a physical Lie Board test to see how the sole of the iron strikes the ground during the swing. I will also use face tape  to record where you are hitting the balls on the club face to determine exactly your length and lie. I will use our “Launch Monitor” to evaluate your ball flight. As an example, if you are drawing the ball too much we may opt for a slightly flatter lie to give them the desired ball flight we are looking for.

4. I will measure your hand size to determine the proper size grip. Again we may make a variation to achieve your desired ball flight. As an example we may add 1 extra wrap of tape to increase the size of the grip to slow the rotation of the hands during the swing to help prevent the hook. It may be Visa Versa if you are a slicer. These are just some of the nuances that I am looking at to find the best clubs for your game. Golf is a difficult game even with properly fitted clubs.

 

 

 

I pride myself on helping each player find the best possible club to fit their game. It doesn’t matter to me which companies you may prefer, I’m just concerned that they FIT YOUR GAME. It’s a totally personal thing as to what feels best to you, and what fits your eye. I totally respect that and encourage you to go with what you like. I also like to interview you to see what you are currently using and what you like and maybe don’t like about your current clubs.

We will test your current iron or club you are using against that of the new ones we are testing using the Launch Monitor to determine which is best for you. I want to know all about your game, where you play and your current handicap. I want to know how much you play and practice. We will then look at all the comparable type clubs you are interested in from all the different companies that might work. I want you to try each and every one of the brands that you are interested in SO WE CAN DETERMINE TOGETHER WHICH ARE THE BEST CLUBS FOR YOU. 

But even after we do all of that we may still need to adjust them using My “Hanging Method” when they arrive.

I AM COMMITTED TO MAKING GOLF MORE FUN AND ENJOYABLE FOR YOU !

REMEMBER GETTING A DEAL ON CLUBS THAT DONT FIT YOU IS ”NO BARGAIN” AND YOUR GAME WILL SUFFER.
