Club Fitting - Which Club First? Putter?


Recommended Posts

My wife , bless her,  got me a gift card for a club fitting session at a local fitter here in Houston. It’s good for one club and I am leaning toward a putter fitting or a fairway wood fit.

I am a Senior newbie player and I’m hitting my Driver (Big Bertha ) 200 yards  or so with little dispersion 

Have not purchased a Fairway wood and am using my 4 iron currently

Putter is a cheap $50 something or other I got on sale

Know both would help my game immensely just looking on feedback for prioritization

  • iacas changed the title to Club Fitting - Which Club First? Putter?

Welcome to TST.    We're glad you've found us.

You're going to be the one to ultimately decide how the fitting goes.   Usually fittings are broken down into different club categories: drivers, woods/hybrids, irons, wedges, putters.     

Is the gift card just a fitting or the fitting and purchase?     From your description of your bag it sounds like you could either use a fairway wood or a hybrid to fill in some gaps.   

What you may find, some places will offer free fittings with the purchase of the clubs.   Check around.

You cannot make a poor choice.  Your wife gave you a gift...that's plenty good right there.  Pick something and feel good about it.  We should all be so lucky.

I think I would get my putter out of the way first as you probably need it every hole vs the fairway wood. But it's very nice  that your wife got you that fitting gift and imo you really can't go wrong whichever club you get fit for for first. Good luck.

That was pretty much my thinking. Will use putter on every hole.

Fairway wood and/or a hybrid next

Thanks

    • Day 70 (6/13/21) - My wife filmed me taking swings with an 8-iron and Driver (w/o a ball) in the backyard. Positions seemed pretty good in the backswing, but in the downswing, I noticed that I have a tendency to let the club open up as I started down, thus requiring a correction at impact. Based on this information, I did several more swings focusing on keeping the clubface square to my line throughout the swing. Will work on ingraining this feeling again tomorrow. 
    • Every other weekend I play a modified version of match play with a friend of mine.  We play all 18.  Today I lost 8 to 6.  However...we also keep a cart score:  the winning/tying score, each hole, being the cart score for that hole.   Our previous low cart score had been +4.  This morning we managed a +3.  
    • Whoever chose this course (me) should be punished. And @georgep too. Apologies.
    • I recorded my swing in face on and down the line and have uploaded it here. Please critique and provide feedback. Appreciate your time on this! Thanks! 11 HCP. 8 Iron. Looking to optimize swing and learn to score in Golf.  
    • Got a new birdie on #18 today. Hit my best drive of the day through the end of the fairway into a swale of rough short of the apron leading to the green. Had about 65 yards to the pin, so too a bit off a 9-3 sand wedge. Hit the approach to about 12 feet, and rolled in a left-to-right putt to end the round with a birdie.
