The equipment you use dramatically impacts your golf swing. If you’re using a set of irons (or any club, for that matter) that isn’t properly fitted to your proportions and natural posture, you’re probably having to compensate and alter your best swing. You can determine whether you have the ideal golf club fit with a quick and simple exercise that requires only a marker, a ball and one of your irons.
In this lesson, PGA Professional Eric Hogge teaches you how to tell if your golf club fit is properly suited to your specific measurements by drawing a vertical line on a ball and assessing where that line ends up on your clubface. He talks about the importance of making the club adjust to you when learning how to hit irons, rather than you adjusting for the club. He also shows how the heel of your iron should rest for a correctly fitted club. And voila, in just a matter of minutes, you’ll know whether or not your golf equipment fits.
