    • I have read in several places that everyone should get fit for clubs to improve their game, no matter their skill level.  But I do not believe it.  Maybe it is due to the manufacturer sponsorships.  I just think that if you are going to be utilizing this site and making the radical changes to your swing that a "rookie" is bound for, your swing, and club profile will be changing with it - a lot. So do not sweat the specifics.  Get some sensible learning clubs to start with, second hand if you like.  If you can find them close to the recommendation without working to hard at it, wonderful.  If not, no sweat.  You are only going to use them for a year or two. In the meantime, make a "My Swing" thread for yourself and post it to this site so that you can begin to work on that swing.  Once you begin to feel confident with your mechanics, get a new fitting before you upgrade your clubs. That is what I would do.
    • I’ve played in both, the GC Tour in the Seattle area and the Golfweek Tour in Charleston South Carolina. I would say competition wise based on what Flight you played in there wasn’t much of a difference.  Cost is the major difference. The GC events were on average higher. That is driven by two things; the courses played and the person running that Tour.  I think it’s important that whomever runs the Tour has to have the knowledge on how to run the event.  There are requirements to whomever that person is. The Seattle tour almost folded due to mismanagement and actually had to replace the guy who ran the Tour.  He was replaced with this young women who knew what she was doing, the Tour actually flourished with her in charge.  I digress a bit, my 3 buddies and I played most of the events, especially the private tracks you couldn’t otherwise play. Carpooled together, had a bunch of fun and occasionally won an event (Flight).  The Charleston Tour has a guy that knows what he’s doing!  He would actually work with the Myrtle Beach and Hilton Head guys and do joint events. That was a plus!  Overall you probably wouldn’t notice which is better, it’s about who you play with in your Flight and just having fun.
    • Weight and length most important. Finding a similar bend profile is of lesser importance. If you tell us what he recommended I can give you a list of alternate shafts.
