The answer is yes, a custom golf ball fitting can be a worthwhile investment if you are looking to optimise your golf game.
With a fitting, a professional can evaluate the specifics of your golf swing and recommend the right type of ball for you. This could lead to better ball flight and more accurate shot-making which could help you improve your overall score and have more fun on the course.
What happens at a golf ball fitting appointment?
A professional golf ball fitter will ask questions about your current golf game and what you are looking to improve. Then, they will provide a range of golf balls that match your playing style, shot velocity, spin rate, and preferences.
The fitter may also ask you to hit several golf balls with a variety of clubs to get a better understanding of your swing, form, and technique. The last step is to test and compare the different golf balls to determine the best fit for your game.
How much is a golf ball fitting?
Typically a golf ball fitting costs the same as a club fitting which can be around £30-£60 depending on the facility.
Where can I get a golf ball fitting?
To get a proper ball fitting you will need to have your club speed, ball speed and spin rates analysed so it would require a facility with a launch monitor like Foresight GCQuad or Trackman.
Your local PGA Golf Professional will most likely have this facility so get in touch with them.
At Dunes Golf Centre in Fraserburgh we have a Foresight GCQuad and an indoor Studio so you can try the full range of balls all year round and in any weather.
A ball fitting at Dunes Costs £30.00 at which you will find out the best ball for your game.
