Golf Etc.’s full performance fitting employs the Better Golf Faster software program to match equipment to players based on natural swing and mutual love of long walks in the country. Clients drive dimpled orbs tracked by FlightScope, a 3-D doppler tracking radar that records launch data, ball flight, and club-travel information. The proprietary fitting system profiles the golfer’s optimum club characteristics, spitting out an individual performance report that recommends the correct length of club, weight, balance, and type of shaft. Golfers gain a better understanding of specific drivers that produce the best distance, irons that place the most accurate shots, and hybrids that get the best fuel economy. Technicians work with patrons, handing out expert advice on whether to buy new equipment or reshaft existing clubs.
At Golf Etc., a certified True Temper Performance Fitting Center, expert staffers take care of golfers on and off the course with custom club fittings, equipment repair, and high-performance gear and apparel. Using technology as part of their custom Better Golf…Faster! (BGF) system, pros analyze swings with charted and plotted data that assesses each player’s unique swing motion and diagnoses an optimal club length, weight, and type of shaft. They combine this with the FlightScope program, which uses 3-D Doppler radar to analyze ball-flight information, the same system used by weatherman to track clouds when they fly south for the winter. They integrate data correlating to ball speed, shot shape, and angle of attack into the BGF system to create a multifaceted club prescription.
To keep golfers looking as good as their swings, Golf Etc. stocks a full line of athletic gear and apparel from top golf brands such as Ping, Titleist, and Callaway. The shop also houses a Sports-O-Zone equipment sanitizer that uses ozone to rid gear of odor, bacteria, and viruses.
