  1. Helps if you all post the links ;) http://www.amegolf.net/ http://www.jancraigheadcovers.com/
  2. Also check out the AGA http://www.azgolf.org/tournament/ind...&SubCategory;=1 And see if this group is doing any events in 2010 http://www.golfconnecttours.com/page...060-phoenix-az After that you can check with any course about their men's club
  3. One thing I always have checked when switching or trying out new clubs is to make sure all the lofts are the same (as well as lie, shaft, etc) I don't ever trust the printed specs.
  4. No offense but this doesn't really add value to the conversation
  5. I love Mizuno's golf equipment and I think you'll find many here who respect and love them as well. Heck just read today's review of the MP T-10 wedges and you'll find more here
  6. Certainly a good place to start but I already see a few very high quality clubfitters missing from that list. Problem with finding a certified clubfitter is...who certified them...really it's not that hard to get a certification from a component or shaft manufacturer. So you're pretty much left with what you are doing already, ask in forums, golf shops, etc.
  7. I agree with this statement and is one of the reasons why I've have several of my clubs SST Pured and personally I didn't think it was that much more to spend
  8. +1 for Ping BUT I've also had a good experience with a putter fitting at Hot Stix
  9. I don't know of any places in SF, there is a shop or two in Albuquerque but have never tried them out.
  10. For one, shopping for clubs by stiff graphite vs regular steel isn't a comparison. If you are fitted for a stiff flex then use a stiff flex but don't let people talk you into adjusting your flex based on material, make sense? Graphite offers great damping properties especially for people suffering from tendonitis and such. A past study showed that golfers are still playing a shaft too stiff and heavy for them (which could be another topic) Another great thing about graphite is that the quality has become far superior in recent years (hence the higher cost) and allows the manufactures the ability to manipulate weight, balance points, kick points, tip sections, etc far more than with steel. With steel you can control a lot of that with the steps in the shaft however not as easily as with graphite, creating a truer matched set. I don't suffer from tendonitis but I've been curious about graphite shafts in irons so I've built several demo clubs (and a complete set) to see how graphite shafts compare to my steel shafts and in many head-to-head tests both on the course and with a launch monitor a properly fitted set regarless of material provided great results. Like many products there is poor, good and great quality. Graphite will cost more than steel when matched with equal quality. Common myths associated with graphite irons shafts Graphite shafts are for old people - Not True, as mentioned above graphite shafts in irons offer many advantages when compared to steel All graphite iron shafts are cheap quality - Not True, like steel shafts, they are offered in a wide array of quality. This statement came about because golf club manufacturers will use cheaper quality shafts inorder to save cost and profit margins Graphite shafts are not as accurate as irons - Not True, if you were properly fitted this wouldn't be an issue.
  11. You'll find plenty of courses with good rates, I usually use golfnow.com and also check the newspaper, the Arizona Republic, in the Wednesday or Thursday sports section you'll see a lot of specials.
  12. Amazing! http://sports.yahoo.com/golf/blog/devil_ball_golf/post/Meet-the-guy-who-makes-more-per-hole-than-Tiger-?urn=golf,190463 http://www.usatoday.com/sports/golf/2009-09-17-3467597294_x.htm
  13. In my experience people will learn to hit the clubs they have. For example a guy who's driver produces a lower ball flight will adapt his swing with that club to get the ball up in the air. It is my belief that clubfitting reduces the amount of time a person needs to learn how to hit that particular club and will help develop consistency. Avg score (before clubfitting): 92 Avg score (after clubfitting): 87 I saved strokes immediately because I didn't have as many shots that went OB.
