70% of golfers don’t think they need new clubs…
Recent Study Finds Most Golfers Could Improve with Different Clubs
Golf club technology has advanced significantly with improvements such as adjustable club faces, MOI and lighter shafts. Golfers who have not had their clubs professionally checked in the last three years are probably missing out on yards and accuracy, according to a recent GolfTEC study on set make up.
GolfTEC tracked the sets of thousands of golfers and discovered that almost all had at least one opportunity for improved performance through new equipment. Some of the most common mistakes found in a golfer’s set are mis-matched shaft flex, bounce issues in their wedges and yardage gaps in a number of places. The irony is that in a related survey, 70% responded that they thought their clubs were a good match for their swing.
To answer the question “Do I need new clubs?” GolfTEC created a fact-based approach to quickly, affordably and definitively help golfers stop guessing. The Set Analysis is the best way a golfer can discover what their clubs are missing.
A Set Analysis identifies
- Gaps in the bag as a result of a lifestyle or swing change
- The 2-3 equipment issues in a golfer’s bag that are costing distance or accuracy
- Opportunities created by newer club models
“We developed the Set Analysis to solve the industry problem that the wrong clubs stand in the way of golfers playing their best golf,” said Joe Assell, GolfTEC CEO and Co-Founder. “GolfTEC was the only company with the database of swing research and club fitting technology to create something like a Set Analysis for the average golfer.”
Starting with a multi-point checklist and including a gap analysis and flex review, a GolfTEC Set Analysis by a Certified Personal Coach provides a fact-based review of every club in the bag. Often, golfers who are playing with the wrong clubs don’t realize the problem and continue to be frustrated with specific clubs that aren’t right for their swing. Other golfers find themselves disappointed when they don’t have the right club for a shot.
The Set Analysis will debut this month at over 140 GolfTEC Improvement Centers for only $49, regularly $85.
“It was time for players to be offered a more comprehensive look at the weak spots in their bag,” said Mike Clinton, GolfTEC Co-Founder and COO. “The Set Analysis is a 30-minute dynamic process where problems are identified and solutions are evident. Golfers will finally have a road map to a better, more well-rounded bag at a reasonable price.”
