Fitting vs. Instruction?


Recommended Posts

I have wondered about this for some time. If golfer has limited budget to apply on golf game would it be better to spend that money on instruction or on club fitting? Suspect some of that is specific to type of golfer (high, mid, low handicap, etc)

So, if I have some amount of money I can either spend on instruction or fitting and knowing I will at least be able to make some adjustments to to bag based on fitting, where would you put your money?

Instruction. 100%. Imagine this: Beginner golfers, males, one gets an off the rack ladies set and a week’s worth of lessons. The other gets fitted for clubs and heads out alone. Who’s better after the week?

For the most part, clubs only do what the golfer's swing allows them to do. 

Swing instruction is more valuable.

Instruction NO question. If you find a decent instructor they should also be able to help you bend or correct your irons and give general recommendations for woods.

Lead off with lessons. If you have a club or two that really hurt your swing, your instructor will tell you.

I would also say instruction.  My game improved after only one lesson.  I am not at a point where I will be arranging for another lesson.

I would say a qualified instructor. I have taken quite a few lessons over the years. All instructors are not equal. The golf swing happens so fast that it really takes a very qualified one you see your flaws. I think one that sees your ball flights is going to be the best in making corrections.

    • I voted no as he is what he is. The alleged child abuse (if true) would be unfortunate and could explain why he seems to disown his parents. His personality could still be what it is, with or without the alleged abuse. To me, it's none of my business and if he wants to talk about it, that would be his choice and not mine. Notwithstanding all this, he is still a great golfer who would beat me with one hand and one foot tied behind his back and I appreciate him for what he is.  
    • Do you have a swing thread going? Maybe you should  create a swing thread with your videos. Go to ‘Members Swings’ and upload your videos from YouTube then post the links.
    • Day 373 - January 16, 2021 Mach 3 stuff to demonstrate, not for me (I’ll do mine tomorrow), then in the few minutes I had between juniors and a group of five adults, hit about 15 balls. Less exaggerated than the previous time(s).
    • Good advice.  Lay a towel a couple of inches behind the ball when you practice.   It will be an eye opener.
    • Oh no...here comes the ‘ he was the greatest ball striker of all time’ talk....
