  1. I’ve moved to Australia and was only able to bring a limited number of things with me. Unfortunately my clubs were not one of those things. The good news is I’m going to a club fitting and getting some new clubs. My wife also gave me a voucher for three free golf lessons at our club (I’ve been golfing for nearly twenty years but always open to a good lesson) My question is, which do I do first, the lessons or the fitting? I’m playing with borrowed clubs at the moment. Any advice. Ericw
  2. While it's always a great idea to spend some time with a qualified fitter, there are a couple things you can do on your own to see if your irons are properly fit for you. Recent feedback I've gotten from several fitting experts is that the technique of drawing a sharpie line on the back of a ball is better for dynamic lie fitting than using a lie board. The sharpie test is simple and allows you to hit balls off grass. The lie board with tape on the sole is obviously a popular method but the board is raised off the ground and the surface is different than grass. These differences can influence
  3. Television golf analyst and professional player Bobby Clampett recently wrote an article on club fitting...more specifically what he feels are the 2 big problems with club fitting. He made some comments that I felt were spot-on, and he made some comments that I would consider "interesting". The issues he addresses are 1) club fitting for players who have a chronic fade/slice, and 2) too much emphasis being placed on fitting irons for maximum distance. In the first section he talks about meeting players during a pro/am or when he works with students giving lessons: The clubs recomm
  4. Do you any of you know any solution if I want a 7* or 8* upright lie angle. I'm currently hitting 5* up and still hit toe heavy (a lot) on a lie board. Before any of you criticize saying a golf club shouldn't be that upright, I'm going to say I'm a 6'5" using regular length shaft, I have a pretty solid one plane swing and if I use longer clubs I get too much mph in the ball and the back spin makes the ball sky rocket. I know forged clubs can't be bent that much. So do you know any golf compagnies doing that kind of "extreme" golf clubs?
  5. I’m getting a static fitting for my driver, hybrids and irons, and I also need new grips to be put on. I have all my recommended adjustment measurements (lie angle, club length, etc) from my golf coach. I live in Queens, NY. What places would you highly recommend?
  6. I'm all for getting fit for new clubs. However, I only have one set that I would classify as being "fitted". Also, I play with some guys who regularly score in the 70's who never have been "fitted" for their clubs as TST members understand fitting. It may just be the way they always have done things. In other cases, though, fitting may not be available to many for various reasons such as distance to fitting center locations, or cost, or what is offered is really static, not what TST members think of being fitting. And, also related to my question, there was a time when club fitting as TST memb
  7. 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?
