Hi,

I bought a set of Adams Idea A3s last year, and I notice the longer clubs don't sit quite even on the ground. Furthermore, I've always heard it said that having clubs fit to you is a great service done to your game. First off, can I take my clubs to a Dick's sporting goods? Or should I seek out another place? Also, will it be expensive? As a college student, money for a round is hard enough to come by. Finally, what kinds of gains should I see, assuming I go from a poorly fit set to a perfectly tuned one?

Thanks for your help!

Still searching,

Depending on how the clubs already fit you would effect how much the fitting and adjusting would cost.

The main parts of a fitting in my opinion consist of your club shaft length and flex as well as the club lie which is the angle your club is adjusted effecting how flat your club sits on the ground.

If you have to change your shaft length or flex then the price can vary greatly depending on the shafts you decide to go with. And adjusting the lie is often relatively simple for a proper club maker.

If you have any questions about the process or costs I would suggest contacting a golf center near you that can perform these adjustments.

Thanks for posting this, OP. I have similar questions for my bag, which I intend to keep for at least 2 years. All of my long clubs feel way too long, and I am very wild with them. I am a 100+ player, and I too am wondering if I should get my clubs fit. I believe they are standard length but I am only 5'4". There is a Golfsmith near me--should I take my clubs in for a "fitting" even though I don't intend to buy new clubs? Experienced golfers, please advise. Thank you!

I had all my irons fitted for lie/loft and only cost me £30 all in,.....

shalft lenght wont be to pricey if they are being shortened, all they do is chop a bit off and regrip,...so another £30?

shaft lengthening is different ball game and could go £100+ quite easily

Regarding lie adjustments.  Clubs have a material memory to them.  If you bend a set 2 degrees upright, over time they will likely bend back some.  Also if you have cast irons, make sure the guy bending your irons knows what he's doing.  I've seen irons snapped off in the vise.
