Going to a resort with a Callaway fitting center.

Wondering if it is worth paying for the one hour fitting. Has anyone done it or is it going to be a sales pitch

I do play Callaways now

I've done it and it was worth every penny!  I also play Callaways and I didn't get a hint of a sales pitch at all - he actually recommended the same irons I am using but suggested a stiffer shaft.  Same with my driver.  I don't know which one you're planning on visiting, but the one I went to (Concord, Ontario, Canada) gave me full printouts with my fitting info and recommendations and photos, links to videos of my swing compared to several pros to view side-by-side (pretty cool!), a Callaway Golf hat and a sleeve of Tour i(s) balls.  I'd do it again just to try out the new gear even if I didn't need a fitting!

+1 - I went to the fitting center at their head office in Carlsbad and it was a really great experience.  If you are interested in playing Callaway equipment, I certainly suggest going to the fitting center.  ENJOY!

    • Sandbox in the mornings might end up being a good thing. I’ve read some comments from people on the internet that say it’s a good way to warm up and get a feel for the conditions before you play.
    • I can't thank you guys enough, this looks great!  (I hope this is the proper use of the multiple dancing  banana)
    • Hands aren't tiny, but with wrist line to middle finger tip being just under 7.5 inches and my middle finger coming in at 3 inches long, my hand is mostly palm. I've tried to replicate things like this but I just can't keep my fingers consistently wrapped around the grip, especially the pinky and especially when trying to have the fingers perpendicular to the grip along the 'palmar digital crease' as written in that thread. That's with a standard grip with no extra wraps. I feel like the grip moves in my hand and I tend to get weird skinny callouses on the blue lines here. This may be more that my hand doesn't like cord, but still. If you numbered the segments 1 to 3 with 1 being by the finger tip, I feel like my hand is more comfortable when the grip is aligned diagonally in lead hand, resting on the pinky on segment 3 (slash the crease below) and resting on the index on segment 2 (slash the crease below). I also know that just because it's comfortable doesn't mean it's functionally right. When I do manage to execute a full swing without feeling the club moving in my hand it obviously feels insanely crisp and solid in comparison to other swings when it moves. I just bought a full set of Undersize Tour Wrap Microsuede to test out a handful on clubs, before I regrip all 13, but I figured I'd run these thoughts past TST. I'm going to try to share a video taking my grip later today or tomorrow morning.
    • I think it was one part particular camera or shot. It was some vista canyon-y view. 
    • Up to you. I’m charge less but they might give you a small credit.
