Thank you for replying. The company doesn't offer swing weight adjustments and I don't know what the standard length swingweight is. I looked for anwers on google about what happens if a club is longer than standard and extenstions etc and it all sounds like the swingweight is different, so what the company probably does, they add extension or just use longer shafts without adjusting the swingweight. Originally, I just thought half an inch longer would be a good idea only...
I ordered a set of Forgan 150 steel irons from Forgan St Andrews. As a fitter in a golf shop (static fitting, no stance or swing checked) had told me that I should have half an inch longer clubs, I made use of the offer of Forgan company to order the set of irons with half an inch longer shafts -  they let you choose different specs including lie. Now I clearly see, given my stance checked by a pro, that they are not only half an inch too long, but the lie is off, too. I...
I am very sympathetic with the OP. At the beginning I practiced without a pro for a year. I must say that after having my first lesson, it wasn't about fixing mistakes and how difficult to get rid of them, rather it was about not doing things properly enough, not enough movement here, not enough movement there... So although I 'd learned to keep my elbows stiff for a year, I am surprised how quickly I unlearned this bad habbit. Now when I grab the club, first thing is that...
Plus, with this technique there is no danger you'll get used to bouncing the clubhead behind the ball and getting away with it. You feel very clearly whether you've hit the mat before the ball or after the ball. As I said before, when the ball is hit correctly, you don't even feel you've hit the mat, as the compression of the ball is your last and strongest memory. You feel absolutely no resistance from the ball or the mat. It feels a bit like hitting a kind of jelly ball,...
I know this is nothing new - taking a divot is something I have heard about at least a million times. What is new to me to do it when practicing hitting balls off the mat. I mean what else are we supposed to do when hitting the ball off the mat? Nobody has ever told me to hit a spot in front of the ball on the mat. I only noticed most golfers hit the mat at the driving range and even my first teacher told me to hit the mat, but he didn't tell me where to hit it and how...
I'd like to share this story and ask for your opinions. I'd been practicing golf without a teacher, rather a texbook, online instruction and videos for about a year.  A month ago this teacher at this driving reange where I go every week gave me a great tip for driving. He managed to make me hit several straight drives in a row. Wow. I thought this guy must be something. I decided to give it a try and have my first lesson. ( Up to that point my HCP if anyone would try to...
All cool now! Today I went to the driving range where I bought the driver - demoed and ordered and bought. The woman was there. She was apologizing and said the configuration I ordered was not possible to get from the UK, they don't offer that combination of loft, shaft, etc. I know that is not an excuse. I told her that I had already decided to keep this club.   This problem has two aspects. Getting what I didn't order. There is no debate about that. Under normal...
I've just sent the story to the Cleveland customer service by email asking for their opinion. Maybe they will confirm that the Custom is not good for me and that I should get the right one. With that message directly from Cleveland folks, I would address the businesswoman again and accuse her of brainwashing me.
No, there is no excuse for the businesswoman, I think the woman who did the business messed up big time, no question about that. But because I have big doubts  - seeing her attitude towards customers and their wishes, I doubt she would be able to get the right club and with all kind of hassle added to it I am willing to accept the other club - if it was a club definitely not for an average beginner, I would not accept it but nowhere can I find info that the club and the...
I really appreciate all your caring advice. Yesterday I was going to talk to the person who made this strange business with me and ask her to do something about it. But there are two things that I had to consider or two things I realized later. First, it was not a real fitting, rather here's a beginner with a beginner's swing, with a very slow swing, a guy whose body is hardly athletic, he could like this superlight Altitude, and of course, it will be easier for him to do...
