    About the Book

    Learn the latest in golf club research.

    Read about the history of certain golf clubs such as the invention of the sand club and the history of some controversial U.S.G.A. rules concerning face grooves and grips.
    Don’t miss the “Fun Golf Stuff” segments located throughout the book providing interesting stories, facts about golf in general and excerpts from very old golf books written by famous players like Harry Vardon. See how their golf club comments compare with our present day golf clubs and their interesting descriptions of playing the game back then.
    Section 11 is all about putters and putter fitting (75 pages). Section 12 is all about wedges and wedge fitting (62 pages). Section 13 is all about drivers and driver fitting (47 pages).
    The information in these sections has never been published before and provides valuable insights into helping golfers play better.
    Section 10 is devoted to the needs of women golfers, senior golfers and junior golfers. Research in this area shows what design attributes help these players the most and also explains what to stay away from.
    Appendix 2 is all about golf ball fitting and how to find the right golf ball for your game. Throughout the book, there are charts, fitting score cards and other fill-in forms that help analyze a golfer’s game. They can be used for self analysis or by golf professionals and clubfitters. You are free to copy them. They also have been collected from throughout the book and conveniently placed in Appendix 8 so they are easier to find when you need them.
    There are 5 categories of golf clubs that we need to look at individually since we use them differently. For instance, drivers are hit from a tee; many wedge shots are hit softly for chips and pitches along with sand shots. Fairway metals and hybrids are usually hit with a sweeping style swing and irons are usually hit with a down and through swing. Putters have entirely different needs to work their best. The book explains the specific performance factors of each of these categories, which allows for a better understanding of putting the right club the one that fits into the golfer’s hands.
    Golf Club Fitting and Performance Book is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from EXCELLENT UPDATE This is the best restructuring of relevant information since the publication of the original Design & Repair manual Ralph Printed. I have read each edition of Ralph's material to date and find this the best information relating to all the basic theories needed for new clubmakers.

    does this also cover club-making/repair? (i.e., how to repair/replace shafts, grips, etc...)

    Asked by: jbrent32
    No the GCFP does not cover club making and repair. The GCD4 has clubmaking and repair. We also have these You Tube video's that cover clubmaking and repair as well as fitting and club design.

    What year was this version updated?

    Asked by: club guru
    The Golf Club Fitting and Performance book was published in 2011 and the first edition is still in print and being sold. The content is still current and as relevant today as it was in 2011.
