Custom Fitting Guide

Before taking measurements, be sure to ask Ray to check out your swing with the latest tool of his trade, the Flightscope Xi+ Swing Analyzer, by Flightscope.

Swing Analysis services are offered by Appointment Only. Please call Ray at 1+ (321) 591-6928.

The following information is provided as a guide to custom fitting and how to determine what measurements fit you. Club Length, Shaft Flex, Shaft Length and Grip Size all play a part in how well your custom solution will fit you and help you improve your game.

Determining wrist-to-floor measurement

wrist to floor measurementTo determine your wrist-to-floor measurement wear non golf shoes and stand on a hard surface with your arms hanging relaxed at your sides. Then have someone measure from the point where your hand meets your wrist (as shown in the diagram to the right ->) to the floor. With this measurement and your height, we will be able to determine the correct club length for you.

The chart below helps you determine if you should have your clubs altered from the standard size based on your height and wrist-to-floor measurement.

Note: Club length alterations given are in inches. For example, +1.75″ means that your clubs should be made to be 1.75″ longer than standard length. A -0.5″ instructs us to build your clubs to be 0.5″ shorter than standard length. A Std. means that the proper club length for you is Standard. Use the Chart to determine how much longer or shorter (than standard) your club length should be by finding where Your Height and Wrist-to-Floor Measurements intersect:

Shaft Flex


Shaft flex, a measurement of how much a shaft will bend under a certain load, is directly related to trajectory, distance and feel. The proper shaft flex for your swing speed helps produce the optimal trajectory for your shots. Flex Chart: Use the Charts below to determine the proper flex. The charts below are for consistent carry yardages only (don’t include roll).

Distance Hit with a Driver

(Carry Distance Only)

Recommended Flex

Less than 180 Yards Ladies Flex
From 181-200 Yards Senior Flex
From 200-235 Yards Regular Flex
From 236-285 Yards Stiff Flex
Greater than 285 Yards Extra-Stiff Flex

Club Used from 150 Yards

Recommended Flex

4 or 5 iron Ladies Flex
5 iron Senior Flex
6 iron Soft Regular Flex
7 iron Regular Flex
7 or 8 iron Mid Flex
8 iron Stiff Flex
9 iron Extra-Stiff Flex

Shaft Length


Generally taller players require longer clubs and shorter players require shorter clubs. In metal woods your skill level will dictate the need for additional length. A shorter driver may increase distance for a player who has difficulty making solid contact. Putter length is based on a golfer’s posture and hand position at address. Use the chart below to determine the proper shaft length.

Grip Size


Grip size plays a significant role in the shape of every golfer’s shot. Use the chart below to determine the proper grip size for the clubs. Too large a grip can limit the golfer’s ability to properly release the wrists through the impact area (resulting in a block and/or fade), while too small a grip can cause an early release (resulting in a pull and/or draw).
