OK, I admit, it is a bit of a loaded question. But just for fun, let me give you a list of the 12 key clubfitting elements for golf clubs and you take a moment to think about it and cast your vote for which one is the most important for the widest range of different golfers.

  • Loft
  • Lie Angle
  • Face Angle
  • Shaft Flex

  • Clubhead Design/Model
  • Grip Size/Type

Swing Man Golf Premier Member Gary S

"Working with Jaacob's swing speed training programs I increased my speed by 12 miles per hour in one month. The game is a lot more fun with the driving distances I'm hitting them. Now I'm reaching greens in two more often. Swing speed training really works."

Premier Member increased Golf Swing Speed to 130 Mph

"When I first started the swing speed training I was very skeptical it would do anything for me because I was already swinging at speeds close to 130 mph. But I wanted to get to the next level and be able to compete in Long Drive Events. So I gave it a try. I gained 13 mph in just one month of the basic swing speed training."
