Frequently Asked Questions About Club Fittings

How Long Will the Custom Fitting Take?

A full bag fitting can last up to four hours and can be split into two separate sessions. An iron or driver fitting lasts about two hours. Southy Custom Golf takes time to measure your existing clubs, take static measurements, and conducts a brief interview to determine your goals and desires.


Why Custom Built Clubs?

Custom Built Clubs are precisely built to best suit the Golfer's swing as determined from the club fitting. Shaft length, Shaft Frequency, Lie Angle, Grip Size, and Moment of Inertia (MOI) are precisely matched. This is not how OEM's build their Golf Clubs, and the tolerances in OEM clubs are much wider than you would ever find in a Custom Built Set of Clubs.


How Long Does it Take to Get the Clubs after the Fitting?

The Custom Build Process takes approximately 10 days from placement of the order. Upon delivery of the clubheads, shafts, grips, accessories, etc, the process of Blueprinting the golf clubs begins. Each piece is accurately measured and weighed. This process insures that the clubs in your set are built congruently which is what makes your club set feel uniform.


What is the Cost of Custom Built Clubs?

Custom Built Clubs vary in price. Each company has their own pricing. As we are a fitting studio, we are allowed to offer clubs individually, meaning we do not need to sell you extra equipment you will not need/use on the golf course. Because of this, our irons are sold as individual items, not as sets. This helps you keep it simple when purchasing equipment.  Since we build ONLY the clubs you need, you don't spend money on extra equipment you don't need. (example: buying an iron set 3-P, but then taking out the 3 and 4 irons to replace with hybrids..thereby buying 2 extra clubs you will not use).


Why Wishon Clubheads?

In his career, Tom Wishon has been recognized for creating sophisticated, industry-acclaimed designs for clubheads, shafts,and grips.
Tom has authored eight books on clubmaking, shaft fitting and research, and custom clubfitting. Even more notable in Wishon's career is the fact that he is credited with more than 50 golf industry design technology firsts and is still the only designer from the custom clubmaking industry to have created models which have been used to win on the PGA Tour and in Ryder Cup competition.

On a more technical note, Wishon clubheads are handcrafted to exact loft and face angles. This is unheard of in OEM clubs. Southy Custom Golf can confidently order your clubheads to the precise specifications for which you were fit.


Yet You Still Sell OEM Golf Clubs?
Southy Custom Golf understands that many golfers are predisposed to buying a certain brand or make of golf club. We offer our Customers the choice of OEM equipment, explaining that the clubs assembled in the OEM factory do not meet as strict a building process as Custom Built Clubs. We offer all our Custom Fit customers the option to upgrade OEM clubs upon delivery to Southy Custom Golf. This upgrade would include Frequency and MOI adjustment in our custom shop.
