My Custom Fitting and New Clubs

The day before Christmas I did a custom fitting where I tested a few clubs. Titleist CB, Wilson Staff Model, Wilson Staff V6 and Mizuno JPX 919 Tour. My own clubs is a set of Wilson Staff Pi5.
My common miss is left. Draws and pull draws. You can see how every club performed in the picture. According to the Trackman data I have an slightly out to in path. 
The Mizuno JPX 919 Tour (-1 deg lie) with KBS Tour $-taper 120 shaft came out as the best club for me. The fitter changed my left misses  into a nice fade without me
changing my swing at all. With my own clubs I struggle to hit fades. I'm going back for a second fitting at saturday. This time for wedges and a utility iron.

So this is what I will get.
Clubs: Mizuno JPX 919 Tour 5-Pw (-1 deg lie angle).
Shafts: KBS Tour $-taper 120 (stiff).
Grips: Golf Pride MMC Plus 4 Align.

Yesterday's I had my second fitting at @dormygolf. This time for wedges and utility iron. Tested a few wedges like Mizuno T20, TaylorMade and Callaway MD5 Jaws.
The wedges that I found fitted me best was the Callaway MD5 Jaws. Soft feel at impact and hi spin numbers. The T20 felt harsh. TaylorMade felt soft but had Lowe spin numbers.

The Utility iron fitting

I tested Srixon, Titleist, TaylorMade. All of them felt harsh at ball impact and heavy. The fitter put a Titleist TS3 19 deg hybrid in my hands. The feel was better but still harder then other hybrids I had gamed. It was more feel of a Spec hybrid, which I liked. Got 6 mph higher club speed compared to the Utility irons. Almost all shots was a fade. I felt like it was harder to draw with this hybrid compared to others which i liked.

In the end I ended upp with this.

Wedges: Callaway MD5 Jaws (51, 55, 60) with DG Tour Issue Wedge S200 shafts.
Hybrid: Titleist TS3 19 deg with Hzrdus Smoke Black 6.0 80 Shaft.

Before I went home I ordered my new Mizuno 919 tour irons (5-Pw) with KBS $-taper 120 (black) shafts.

Sounds like you spent a great deal of time in your search, best of luck with the new clubs.

Yes I have. I wanted a club that is more of a blade but with some level of forgivness. The fitter handed me the 919 Tour as the first club to test in the fitting process. After just a few shots I said that this club is what I wanted. I di hit a few more clubs, but none of them felt as great and soft at impact like the 919 Tour. Tested a few shaft options and ended up with the KBS Tour $-taper 120 (stiff). Have played a few shafts like DG S300, S400, KBS Tour C-taper 105. All of them felt dead. KBS Tour 4-taper felt active and responsive. Could feel the load/unload in my swing. So Im very happy with my custom fitting. season 2020 will be a great season.

    • I have been stuck on both the home course (which I haven't played as much as usual) and on the away courses. I have 8 more to go on the home course and just #14 on the away composite. I had several good opportunities that stopped on the lip, both putting and chipping. It's kind of annoying at this point. On the home front, I am not sure why I can't make any progress on the sheet, as some of those holes left are gettable, particularly #1 (but I don't warm up and am just happy with a par there), but I haven't got them, lol!  It's not like I am suddenly making fewer birdies, but they are not on the holes I need them on.
    • Doh, I saw this after I posted the pic, lol.
    • Scott Fawcett had some interesting bits on the latest How's My Hand Path podcast. He said something like when Bryson was in college or just got on tour, can't remember, he showed him two swings, his regular and something like the one we see now. So it was something he had in his bag, although probably less polished,  way back when. 211. Sick.  
    • Was windy today, and didn't get above 50 F during my round. Played the short course (par 71 cr 63) and shot an 83 (43-40). Hit the ball reasonably well most of the day. Missed all birdie putts, of which I had 4 that I would consider reasonably makeable (within 15 feet or so), including stuffing it to 3.5 ft on 18, only to miss on the low side.
