Fit­ter anal­y­sis

An­drew’s prob­lem was two clubs ful­fill­ing a sim­i­lar role – a 21˚ hy­brid and a 23˚ util­ity iron. His long­est iron was a 5-iron, so I wanted to sim­plify the gap be­tween that and his high­launch­ing 3-wood. First, we tried a GAPR Hi 3, but that didn’t suit An­drew’s eye, so again, we ended up with a GAPR Mid 4. He was cre­at­ing a bit more ball speed with a higher launch and less spin than both his cur­rent clubs, and that yielded 16 yards more dis­tance.

An­drew’s on-course feed­back

When GAPR was re­leased it caught my at­ten­tion be­cause, as a se­nior golfer with a de­lib­er­ate swing speed, I strug­gle with lon­girons and can’t seem to hit hy­brids con­sis­tently. First use at the driv­ing range con­firmed Matt’s fit­ting was spot on. I found it very easy to hit, with lots of speed off the face and a pen­e­trat­ing ball flight – ideal for short par 4s and the links cour­ses I play. It has be­come a go-to club and I’m con­sid­er­ing adding a lower-lofted GAPR Mid.
