Professional clubfitters take into consideration many factors when fitting clubs to a golfer. Whether it is a student just learning the game or a seasoned professional with years of experience the right fitting and most comfortable clubs will ultimately determine how well an individual will play the game. The big question is where do you start? Today, with so many choices in the marketplace, clubfitters need a better tool that will help connect the golfer to his or her perfect clubs.
After studying the clubfitting industry for many years, the engineers and scientists at Interactive Sports Technologies have developed a clubfitting system that is easy-to-use and integrates seamlessly into the HDG™ golf simulator. The HDG™ clubfitting software uses advanced computer vision technology to make a comprehensive series of highly accurate measurements in “real-time” which are then displayed on the system touch screen and large display screen for instant feedback. Using the intuitive user interface, the clubfitter can track every club, shaft or even golf ball being tested and will allow the clubfitter to gap every club in their customers bag. As a result the customer will be rewarded with a bag full of clubs that fit well and are fine-tuned for their level of play.
Using this advanced tool, clubfitters can study the data they receive and then make recommendations based on key performance indicators that can now be captured and displayed by the simulator. These include shot distance, ball speed, club speed, launch angle, club face angle and ball spin. Additional ball and club measurements include shaft flex profile, club head acceleration, position of maximum club head speed, angle of attack, load factor and even swing tempo.
“We believe the simulator is the ideal environment for testing and comparing clubs. The simulator and the software literally watch and record everything the golfer does with extreme accuracy. In return, it displays that information in an organized way, that is easy to understand, and easy for clubfitters and clients to work with,” says Todd Richardson, President and CEO of High Definition Golf. “In general, there is a lot of science behind the way we develop products, but the key to our success has always been our ability to translate that into real-world tools.
The HDG™ club fitting software is FREE to HDG™ customers and can be downloaded simply by pressing the software update button on their simulator touch screen.
