As part of their Golf Club Fitting and Repair course, College of Golf students recently assembled hybrid golf clubs fit to their individual playing specifications.

With each student provided a hybrid clubhead, golf shaft, and golf grip to assemble, Professor David Wixson, PGA Master Professional, taught the group the importance of the 14 variables of club fitting, and then had them each evaluate the variables based on their own swings. After assembling and fine-tuning the clubs, the students’ tested them on the course.

The lesson confirmed that when the outcome of a golf shot is based on how well the club is put together, the process of measuring, fitting, and building becomes much more critical. Many of the students found that the properly assembled hybrid golf club enhanced their game, and look forward to the positive impact this knowledge will provide to their clients once they launch careers in the industry.
