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

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 54 - Trying to get comfortable with this new setup, just hitting some balls indoors. 
    • I’ve never tinkered with swing weight before, and when I build a set of irons I usually just settle for the feel of the clubs as-built with the idea that I’ll eventually get used to the different feel. That said, my main set of irons feels perfect to me (probably just familiarity with them), and adjusting swing weight is something I’d like to be able to do in the future to make my other sets feel closer to them. I’ve just never invested the time to work on it. 
    • Day 321 Did mirror work on takeaway/backswing piece, and then hit balls with 7-iron and 3W working on hip turn piece. 
    • You know, as a musician I find a lot of similarities between learning a musical instrument and golf. I don’t think I’ve found any two hobbies more similar.    When it comes to equipment, the similarities hold true. A professional guitarist will be able to make a cheap First Act guitar from Walmart sing in the same way a scratch golfer will play scratch golf regardless if he uses his own clubs or yours. The overall result is pretty much the same regardless of the equipment. The skill of the player eclipses it in importance.    I think in both hobbies, cheap equipment has come a long way, to the point where the differences are subtle. In golf I notice more expensive clubs have less cosmetic defects. The material is better, meaning the clubs are less likely to break, and definitely in the case of wedges/irons wear down. But is that to say a cheap club is going to break in a year? Probably not. To be honest, most of it just feel. The strike of an expensive club feels smoother, sounds better, and frankly is a more enjoyable experience in most cases to hit. 
    • So, that's really a thing? Never even heard of it.
