Tour Players Wrist-to-Floor?

T-WT-W Posts: 169 ✭✭
After a quick search I couldn't find any information on what certain tour players wrist-to-floor measurements are? Finding their height is pretty easy.



My thought is if you could find a tour player with your similar height and wrist to floor, it could be beneficial in terms of copying certain things in their swing. Would be beneficial for club fitting as well. I figured the giant GolfWRX brain could be of some assistance!

    I'd be interested in this as well. Wonder if the OEM would respond to an email with this question

    As far as copying swing types.... wrist to floor will have nothing to do with their type of swing. Everything comes down to mobility/stability, overall strength and flexibility, and who taught them to swing a club (or self learned).

    Why does it matter? Ping reps rarely use that in fittings anymore and they were pretty much the only brand that really focused on the static aspect to fittings. There’s so much that goes on dynamically that two people with same wrist to floor will more than likely deliver, load differently than each other.

    Are you saying that these online fitting programs would not benefit anyone? Heresy!

    Imo they are a starting point. They can get someone in a ball park but a dynamic fitting is much more effective. My old fitter was 1/4-1/2” long based on on height and wrist to floor but every fitting he had he was placed into std length and many time 1* flat.



    I’ve been through numerous iron fittings over the last 3 years and not one fitter has done any static measurements nor have they used a lie board. Outside of a monitor which they have used more for a confirmation on what they were seeing all aspects of the fitting has been visual of ball flight, contact in the face and divot for the ones done on grass. For my driver fittings it’s been the same

    Is this a thing? Like finding a tour player who's wrist to floor is the same as yours so you can copy their swing mechanics? Very interesting

    Wrist to floor is highly overrated, according to GolfWorks instructors.



    w-t-f is at best a starting point for clubfitting. A person's posture and dynamic swing characteristics, toe down at impact... these all determine a person's eventual club recipe.



    Hate to say it, T-W, but you're wasting your time.
