We have mentioned Club Champion recently in our discussion of post-Golfsmith club fitting sources.

Well, CC has a quarter-page ad in today's Wall Street Journal, page A12. Dave Leadbetter is featured in the advertorial. DL touts custom fitting in general, and CC in particular.

CC now has 20 studios scattered around the USA. Has anyone dropped in on CC yet?

One opened in Orlando about a year ago, but I haven't been there yet.  From what I've heard, they're over the top expensive.  Not just for the fitting, but for the subsequent build too.

Again, no personal experience though.

I'm seriously thinking about going to CC in Chicago for a fitting, but I haven't because:

a) I hear the premium for clubs built there are substantial, though if they're truly a much better fit? And of course I'll never know if I would have been fine with a decent off the rack name brand recommended by Golf Galaxy or a PGA Super Store.

b) chicken and the egg - having only played about 6 rounds after a 15+ year layoff, I haven't (re)gained much consistency in my swing, so how could I possibly get a good fit? OTOH if my current irons are poorly fitted for my current age/condition...

c) In my prime many years ago, I was a consistent 80's shooter - I only broke 80/40 about a dozen times ever. FFWD to present - my last three rounds were 87-88 even with my ancient irons and new, cheapo "woods" (TM RBZ's), and I don't expect to get 10 strokes better no matter what I do at my age (63). If I can consistently shoot low 80's, I'd probably be satisfied.

Still debating what's best for me.

    • Yeah, I don't really see the problem with what he said in the interview. Nothing wrong here imo. He's not the biggest fan of team events and isn't quite comfortable in it compared to every other week where it's just himself. Just because he's one of the best players in the world doesn't mean he's supposed to be a huge fan of team events. IIRC, Tiger didn't come across as the most enthusiastic player in those events either, at least not in some parts of his career. People are different and not everyone enjoy playing in a team. Some love that stuff and soak up all the energy. Others have their energy sapped by those things. It is of course the same for every player, deviating from the typical tour routines, but people deal with it in different ways. Brooks might be one that struggle more with the transition, but I doubt he's the only one.

    • Day 201.  Played 18 holes today.  A course where I should have hit more than the 5 GIR I hit and should have shot lower than the 87 I did.  The driving range was closed before the round, and I hit my opening tee shot O.B..  😞  Not sure why I missed so many shots, especially driver, right.  Will have to do some outdoor practice to complement my indoor practice to ensure I'm not getting wild.
