Your golfing map… how many can you tick off?
12th December, December 2018 | 0
Met Steve at his studio where after a coffee and a chat he had me hitting a few balls to get warmed up. I was very sceptical at first when you see some of the data but after showing me my dispersion that would have covered a green and quite a few of the hazards around it I realised I needed some help.
We went through the “fitting” process and fitted the weight into my 6 Iron – immediate improvement, not quite but after hitting some shots with the weight in the grip we hit the stats again. Now I see the difference – taking away the couple of duck hooks my dispersion area had improved immensely. Now I stood a chance of hitting the par 3!
Was sceptical but after playing with the clubs (which were also new, that never helps) I am now seeing a constantly better grouping of balls on the range and looking at my stats my handicap has come down one shot very close to two and the fact I have had my clubs fitting and the BioMatch fitting I am feeling more confident of where the ball is going.
Thanks Steve – great day and awesome company.
BioMatch – One Swing Club Matching
Swingweight is outdated – BioMatch is the future
You are one swing away from a better game….
Designer Golf have the exclusive rights to deliver the revolutionary BioMatch One-Swing Golf Club Matching system directly to its customers and sub-distributors.
BioMatch offers effortless improvement to any golfer’s game by matching the golf clubs within the set and to the biomechanics of the golfer. Thereby taking back the accuracy and distance that Swingweight matched golf clubs are robbing you off. The revolutionary system is applied to any golfer´s clubs, old or new!
A patented online application creates a model of the golfer swinging each of his or her clubs and thereby determines the optimum weight for each club. The target weight is achieved by adding a specific proprietary weight inside the shaft at the grip end of each club. BioMatch is the last step in the club fitting process.
Once the weights are installed the golfer´s game will improve effortlessly as he or she now only have to ingrain one swing in the subconscious mind. Steering of the club is no longer necessary and is discouraged. The method provides significantly better accuracy and slightly more distance to golfers at all levels. BioMatch is a must have for any golfer who cares about their scores, or even the enjoyment of the game.
The following two screen shots show the accuracy improvement from 7-iron shots hit by Sam Patel, the current Captain of Collingtree Park GC, Northampton:
The first picture shows a shot dispersion of 881 square yards using his own 7 iron, the second picture shows his 7 iron dispersion after BioMatching reduced to an incredible 99 square yards, with an overall distance gain of 8 yards.
BioMatch replaces the arbitrary Swingweight method of matching golf clubs which incidentally, has nothing at all to do with swing and very little to do with weight! furthermore It is totally obsolete, but still used by the golf industry as the holy grail of clubmaking/fitting?
Designer Golf Ltd, located in Daventry 50 miles north of London, is now trained and fully equipped to implement the patented BioMatch method to its customers. Steve Low, Managing Director of Designer Golf Ltd, was stunned by the results that BioMatch brought and grabbed the opportunity to become the UK & European Distributor with both hands: “After applying the method to my clubs I was shocked to see the dispersion, I have now fitted it to every age, shape and ability of golfer, from a Tour Pro to an 85-year-old client and the accuracy improvement is remarkable across the board”. Designer Golf is now set to revolutionize the club fitting business across Europe and has already appointed distributors in Germany, Denmark and Sweden with several centres in the UK to follow soon.
The founder of Rational Golf LLC of Florida and inventor of the BioMatch system, Gisle Solhaug, is excited to work with Designer Golf as “they will be able to serve golfers in the UK and Europe far better”. The cooperation with Designer Golf will be used as a model for how Rational Golf will appoint and work with distributors worldwide.

Golfers play with 13 different full swing clubs of random Mass and Moment of Inertia. These are the two physical properties that affect how a club behaves when swung. Still, these two properties are ignored by the golf industry. The subconscious mind of the golfer thereby has to learn one swing for each club. It also has to tell them apart by waggling the club before swinging it. To swing one club in an efficient and consistent manner is an achievement. To learn thirteen different swings and be able to tell them apart at a subconscious level is next to impossible.
Even if the club makers wanted to produce clubs of optimal Mass and Moment of Inertia, it would not be easy to do as the properties of each golfer comes into play as well. The physical properties of each club would have to be optimized for each and every customer.
Brain Maps (Muscle Memory)
It gets worse; it has been found that while growing one brain map, another brain map may shrink. This, as brain maps are competing for neurons and space (Zumerchik, 2010). For example, by practicing with a 9-iron, the proficiency of the other 12 clubs will drop. The only way to solve this problem is to have one brain map that covers all thirteen full swing clubs.
Rational Golf LLC of Florida has solved the problem by creating an algorithm, named BioMatch, that makes a computer model of the player´s body swinging each of the clubs in the bag. Based on input such as the golfers body mass and height and various properties of the clubs the algorithm calculates how much weight and length of weight that has to be added to the grip end of each club for the upper body, hands, and clubhead to be synchronized at the impact position, while the golfer applies one consistent swing. This is how the BioMatch method of golf club matching takes the complexity out of golf.
The BioMatch method of matching golf clubs is available from Designer Golf Ltd here in the UK. And the system can be fitted to golfers existing clubs or a new set and is the final part of the club making process. The tailored set of weights inserted into the grip end of the clubs is derived once the golfers personal data of Height, Weight and percentage of Body fat along with original weight, length loft and lie of each club has been entered into the algorithm. Club fitters that have converted to the BioMatch method of matching golf clubs, and thrown away the Swingweight scale, are able to measure the moment of inertia in the grip area accurately and increase an individual golfers shot accuracy by up to 65%!
Rational Golf has developed a method that golf club manufacturers can implement for taking online orders and optimize the weight of each club to suit each customer in an efficient manner.
