Always start your Optimizations with TourLock Pro counterweights first. Installing TourLock Pro weights is the quickest, easiest and most conclusive solution to creating instant and desired results for golfers of all levels. TourLock Pro golf club counterweights are available in 12 different weights ranging from 8-grams to 100-grams. This is the largest selection of weights available and allows you to fine tune your swing in subtle increments. Each player’s swing, experience, arm strength, and unique tendencies effect how counterweighting responds, and as a result, there is important value in the ability to carefully optimize clubs using a range of weight classes. Our counterweights are also protected by four separate patents with another seven patents pending - the benefits of TourLock counterweights as used by professionals on the PGA tour are only available from TourLock Golf.
Start testing with a 20 gram for swing clubs and a 60 gram for putters.
Below is a generalized chart that can help you choose the best TourLock Pro weight for your skill level. For instance, if you have a low to mid handicap with an average swing speed, you would look in the RED areas to determine your best fit…a 16 gram weight would work best with your wedges. This chart was compiled from statistics we recorded from over 250,000 golfers who have used the TourLock Pro golf club counter weight system. Click on the image to enlarge.
Performance Fitting Technology – The ”Art of Optimization” MOI Placement - Optimal Dynamics – Total Optimization By John Johnson
Keep in mind, when installing a combination of TourLock Pro and Opti-Vibe weights, total optimization is the goal. Performance Fitting Technology is the easiest, quickest and most conclusive way to finding total optimization of a golf club to match the individual using it. Performance Fitting Technology requires the basic fitting parameters (club aesthetics, lie, length, grip, shaft profiling etc), the difference is in the ability to alter the feel and performance of the club to best suit the individual swinging in ways that have been PGA Tour proven to work. This proven method is much easier for a clubfitter / individual to find the optimal performance of a club while at the same time creating a better sense of awareness of a sound repeatable swing or stroke.
The first step is to modify the end of the grip with the TLP Grip Modifier. Now the grip will have a hole big enough to add weight into the shaft and cap off the hole with desired TLP counter weight. For Putters, start by placing a 50 gram OPTI-VIBE Weight @ 4 inches into the shaft using the Opti-Vibe Dual Tool and cap off the butt with a 12 gram TLP counter weight. For all other swinging clubs, start by placing a 20 gram Opti-Vibe Weight @ 5 inches into the shaft and cap off the butt with a 12 gram TLP counter weight. Now the club will be "Optimal Weight Ready” (OWR) allowing the clubfitter or individual the ideal starting point to ultimately optimize the club in a simple and conclusive fashion unlike never before.
With club OWR, ask individual what he or she feels while holding and swinging the club. Golf club awareness is the key. This is when more or less weight can be dynamically altered for both internal weight and counter weight, even before hitting one shot or stroking one putt. This is based on FEEL and pertains to all clubs.
Before stroking one putt or hitting one shot, club should be comfortable for individual feel. At this time, the fine tuning* of the club can be optimized to the individual by incremental adjustments of the desired internal weight. This is tested and influenced with the aid of monitors, video and is also based off of ball/contact reaction. Both dynamic test results and scientific monitor data results will tell you what you need to know to achieve OWT. *Dynamically altering clubs static and balance weight affects individuals differently. In all cases, both dynamic and scientific testing will yield an optimal result of static and balance weight that matches the individual best. Incremental internal weight adjustments are very hard to feel but these minor alterations certainly affect contact, consistency and directional roll. Once peak optimization is found, the club now will be OPTIMIZED and you have achieved OWT…JJ
