This is very much a specialist form of custom fitting and is done with the help of tour-renowned 'Quintic' technology [which the Trackman of putting].
mission putting principles
The toe hang influences the ability of the putter to rotate around the axis of the shaft. In effect, how easy is it for the club face to be opened or closed. This does not relate to the arc of the stroke like many believe. How the toe hang amount interrelates with the players aim bias, miss bias and acceleration profile is a far greater factor in the fitting process and one that is combined with various other factors of your biomechanics and natural putting stroke.
These are the five most common categories of toe hang styles:
Full Toe Hang – Commonly found in heel shafted blades. The toe of the putter points more directly to the ground when allowed to hang naturally.
¾ Toe Hang – Commonly found in blades with short and small hosels. The toe of the putter points down by about 75 degrees.
½ Toe Hang – This toe hang originated with the PING ANSER design. It occurs with most plumbers neck blade putters and hangs about 45 degrees.
¼ Toe Hang – This toe hang can be found in both blades and mallets depending on the hosel design. The amount of toe hang is about 25 degrees.
Face Balanced – This toe hang can also be found in both blades and mallets. The face of the putter will point directly to the sky when allowed to hang naturally.
The reason that the toe hang of a putter is so critical – and one of the first design features addressed – is that it is the only characteristic that directly relates to the way the player squares the face at impact. Software such as 'Quintic' and physics tell us that putting is almost completely ruled by face angle at impact.
This is a 45 minute tour level fitting process that will take you from A to Z. Starting with a meet and greet to get your views, we will then collect data before comparing clubs and analysing that information before we guide you through the buying process and various options available to you such as price matching, 0% finance and trade ins. Then when your club/s arrive, you will get 15 minutes with a fitting technician to ensure they're performing exactly as they should be.
You will follow the 6 stage fitting process [shown below] that Mission Golf Academy believes is key to providing you with tour fitting quality, exceptional customer service and the most competitive prices in the area.
*PLEASE NOTE* | You will be required to pay for the fitting up front - for Putter Fitting this is £20.
If you purchase your club/s from Clarkes' Golf this amount will be deducted from the cost of the new equipment and therefore gives you the fitting and its data for FREE.
