I think I’m getting close to the limit of what I can do with my $20.00 garage sale Walmart special golf clubs. I’ve gotten my score below 50 for 9 holes (Haven’t had time to get out to 18 holes and see if I can break the magic 100). I would like to get used clubs so that I can save some cash, but I want them to fit me also. Here is what I am planning. Please let me know if you think I should do this differently.
My home course has Ping, Callaway, Taylor Made, and Nike clubs available for demo, so I am going to start giving those a try to see what I like. I’m 5’10”, pretty much average, so the demo clubs should match fairly close for length and lie, correct?
Once I decide on a brand and model, I will go to a professional fitter and get recommendations for length, lie, shaft type, etc. Once I have that information, I can narrow my search for used clubs to those that fit those parameters. After I purchase the clubs, I can have them tweaked so that they fit me.
When you are being fitted, the fitter will charge per club, correct? Since being fitted for every single club would be pricey, should I narrow the fitting down to two or three clubs?
For instance, if I am fitted for the seven or eight iron, can the data from that can be extrapolated for the remaining irons?
Should I get fitted for the driver, and the data from that can be extrapolated to a fairway wood and hybrid?
Are there any flaws in the methods I am pursuing?
