West TN or Middle TN club fitting???

Recommended Posts

TN94z    66
I live in Western, TN and I am looking for the best place to get a good club fitting. The only thing I have ever actually been fitted for is my driver. I basically got on the launch monitor and tried a few different drivers and found the one that I hit the best. I am looking for a more complete fitting session. I want to make sure that my driver, shafts, irons, lie angle, ball, etc...are the best possible for my swing patterns. I really want to concentrate on taking my game to the next level this year, and the clubs are the last thing I want to worry about. There used to be a place in Memphis called "Z-golf" but I don't think they are in business anymore. Anyone in here from the area have any suggestions? I don't mind driving to Nashville or Memphis. I am about 30 minutes south of Jackson. Thanks in advance

It's not a stupid question. They aren't that popular. They make clubs that are custom only, they have no stock clubs whatsoever. They will also fit your clubs too.

Cool. Thanks man. One thing I am looking for too is somewhere I can go to not only get fitted, but try to find out which driver would be best for me. I went with the old Cleveland HiBore the last time because I hit it the best on the launch monitor. After hitting it for a year, I don't like it. I would like to try all of the drivers on the launch monitor. The Cleveland just does not fit my eye at all!! I definitely want a different driver.

Well, it looks like I have some good places to try.

I would try to call Z GOlf and make sure they aren't in business anymore. I got fitted there and it was great. They have the Trackman radar system that monitors about 15 different factors. (Most companies use the Trackman to fit their pros) Also, you hit out into the range, not a simulator.

I have. It says their number has been disconnected. That is where I was really wanting to go. I even tried to call the number to their headquarters in Chattanooga with no luck. I'll try again today.

Update on Z-golf Okay, I finally got someone at the Z-golf in Chattanooga. I was told that the Z-golf in Memphis closes down for winter. They will re-open in April. That is where I wanted to go in the first place, so I will wait and go there. I have tried this same number for 2 weeks and just now got someone. They may have just opened back up as well. Thanks for all of the help though.

Are there any other good fitters in Memphis? I would like to get fitted sooner than April. What do you think about Double Eagle Fitters in Cordova? Also, about how much did it cost you to get fit at Z-golf?

Double Eagle is good, or the Edwin Watts on Poplar and Perkins. I know the staff at both places well.

I just called Double Eagle and they told me that it only costs 50.00 if you don't buy a club from them. That seems very reasonable!

Well, I am going this Friday to get a complete fitting. I talked with a guy at a local shop here in Jackson (I thought he had went out of business) and he uses the Vector system. He is going to do a complete fitting...woods, irons, putter, etc...for 25.00. And if I buy a club from him, he will do it for free. So, that is where I am going. You can't beat 25.00 for a fitting!

    • As per the specs on XR irons, the stock shaft lengths are: 6i = 37.875" PW = 35.75" AW = 35.50" SW = 35.25" So, your 6I + 1" now is 38.875" long. If you have already extended these two wedges 1" also, then you would extend their shaft length by 2". If you have not already extended your wedges, you would be increasing the shaft length by 3". A couple of things to consider: Shaft length + loft helps determine how far a given golf club will launch the ball. If you make the wedge shafts 2 to 3 inches longer, you likely will get yardage compression. You might get a PW that flies longer than your 9i. Safety factors: The clubsmiths at GolfWorks do not recommend extending non-putter shafts beyond 1". You run the risk of creating shear points, with club possibly coming apart. If you like longer shafts in the short clubs, try the single-length irons. 
    • I will be posting some next week sometime. I have been in the Fitness business for 20 years. These will include 3 levels for beginners, intermediate and Advanced so you can work your way up. I will also include some easy warm up drills. watch for my posts  "Ten minutes to better golf "  check out my ten minutes to pain free golf in the meantime
    • I hear you. Having the playoffs is definitely better than not, hopefully the Labor Day finish and some slight format tweaks down the road can help. 
    • I as blown away this morning when I saw the new Cleveland woods and irons in Golf Digest. At the 2015 St. Louis Golf Expo, the regional Cleveland/Srixon rep had told me that Cleveland was going to focus on wedges and recreational clubs, while Srixon would focus on clubs for competition golfers. I noted, however, that the past 18 months the Cleveland site only talked about wedges and putters. So, it was good to see the GD ad on the new Cleveland Launcher woods and irons. Circa 2009, the Cleveland CG16 irons lost out to the Callaway X20 irons when I was redoing my bag. And,  I played a mix of CG14 wedges until last summer. Good to see Cleveland rebounding beyond wedges and putters.  Several golf club manufacturers have used variations on CB in the designations of their cavity-back iron models. I doubt such a suit would go anywhere; it would be like trying to copyright the terms grooves and dimples.
    • Yup.  I'm happily in the "I will not be getting a Scotty" club.
