ITS ABOUT YOU //
TaylorMade Tuned Performance combines art, science and technology to make the experience unique and impactful for every player. Unlike traditional “custom fitting,” which focuses on enhancing a player’s best shots, Tuned Performance enhances what you do well and minimizes what you don’t.
Each Tuned Performance experience begins with a data-gathering discovery process designed to establish a shared understanding of the state of your game and what you aspire to – what we call Current State and Desired State. Next, our Tuned Performance Specialists analyze the data and use the latest TaylorMade equipment technologies to optimize the distance and direction of your shots.
ACTIVATING YOUR CLUBS //
Our extensive player testing and R&D data demonstrates that individual players react very differently to equipment adjustments. That’s why each Tuned Performance Session is an act of discovery that weighs a player’s tendencies in terms of good shots, average shots and poor shots to match the equipment technologies and specifications that will best complement each individual golfer’s needs.
A Unique, Unparalleled and Unforgettable Clubfitting Experience. State-of-the-Art Motion Capture Technology. World-Class Service. Welcome to The Kingdom.
The Kingdom was originally created as a state-of-the-art clubfitting facility for TaylorMade Tour Staff Professionals. The Kingdom and its grounds for years were open to a precious few.

The synergy between golfer, fitter, and technology lies at the heart of TaylorMade's clubfitting philosophy. Our highly-trained Tuned Performance Technicians are experts at taking in-depth swing information gathered by our cutting-edge MAT-T system and using it to determine the optimum combination of clubhead, shaft, grip, swingweight, movable weight configuration and flight control settings to optimize your performance.
