However, there are steps you can take to paint your own vehicle and save some cash. Consider the following steps if you are considering taking this task on as a do-it-yourself project.

When painting your car you need to be free to move in an area that is well ventilated. You also need to make sure any residual paint is not a problem if it gets so walls or floors.

Custom Clubfitting – What Kind of Car Wash Do You Want?

More and more golf club companies are starting to emphasize custom clubfitting as an option for golfers as opposed to buying their clubs in standard form off the rack.

Custom fitting is very definitely beneficial for average golfers and not just for single digit handicap players. When done properly, custom fitting can reduce and offset some of the poor shotmaking effects of your swing errors. In addition, proper custom fitting makes it easier to take swing lessons and make the changes in the swing to hit the ball better.

If you are thinking about custom fitting for your next driver or set of clubs, there are a few things you need to know to ensure you really do end up with properly custom fit clubs that will improve your game. A colleague of mine in the golf business made what I believe to be a very appropriate analogy between custom clubfitting and getting your car washed.

If your car needs a bath, you can pull out the hose and just spray water on it to wash off the obvious surface dirt. On the other hand, you can also fill a bucket with suds and scrub the dirt off the surface with a sponge. Or, you can pull out all the stops and scrub, detail and wax it. All three examples could be called a car wash.

Custom fitting in the golf industry today is much the same. There is “fitting”, and there is professional custom clubfitting. Examples of a “fitting” include, “6 questions on a web site”, 15 minutes hitting a few balls with a swing computer, or 3 measurements and a response from a golf sales person to the effect of, “I know what you need.”

 

On the other hand, professional custom clubfitting is going to involve a pretty fair amount of your time, often more than one trip to have your swing analysed in detail by a trained and experienced custom Clubmaker so that ALL the possible specifications that make up a set of golf clubs can be pinpointed and selected to match with your strength, size, athletic ability, and especially, the way YOU and only YOU swing.

Professional custom clubfitting really is like the scrub, wax and detail car wash I mentioned before. The other types of fitting are not going to get you really matched well to your clubs to result in the level of improvement that a professional custom fitting can and will do. In other words, which “car wash” do YOU want for your money? So don’t hesitate one more year, go and FIND A CLUBFITTER and you will most definitely see dramatic improvements in your game this year!
