pistolpeteI don't know how much a Titleist fitting session will set you back, but the process of using some of the more sophisticated technology to assist in the process of dialing in the proper club head model, shaft and lie angle makes a HUGE amount of sense. Trackman provides numerical feedback that graphically demonstrates what is working and what is not. An experienced club fitter will knowledgeably assess your swing with his or her eyeball, getting you into the right realm of shaft weight, stiffness, material, etc. He or she will help you objectively select the right model and will honestly guide you. If you are an 18 handicap but starting grooving'em on the range the day before the fitting after reading that tip in the golf magazine of your choice, you might be letting the inner ego, your pro golfer dude convince you that the workability of the pure blade irons are just what you need. Of course those first couple of dubs while swinging for the Trackman are just nerves, miscues....Your fitter will gently, but forcefully, tell you what your inner pro golfer ego won't - "Let's hit a few with the AP2s (yes, a game improvement club head but used on Tour by Jason Dufner) ." As you move through shaft types, the numbers on Trackman let you know just what is happening. And again, the experienced eye of your fitter will dial in the proper lie of your clubs.
In my humble opinion, the Titleist fitting is one of the best improvements your game will ever experience!
Pete, I am headed to Oceanside for a Titleist Fitting (in a couple weeks) at the Titleist Facility...do you have any recommendations now that you have went through it so that I can make the most of the day? I appreciate all your help, it sounds like you had an awesome experience!
