    Anyone had their clubs fitted when they bought them and can tell me if it's really worth it?

    I'm 6'6" so it makes common sense that the same set of clubs that someone 5''10" would buy would obviously play differently between the two of us, just want to know if anyone has experience with that kind of thing

    My current set of irons. Needed to reduce the backspin, i was landing 20 feet on the green and spinning the ball right back off. Ping set up a new set of irons so the ball releases on impact.

    I expect you know, the better clubs in your area have a demo day every year, where the club manufacturer's all come and set up on the range. You can try different clubs and they can fit you on the spot if you want (takes about 20 minutes)

    It was today actually, that's why I asked.

    I hit the new Callaway Epic driver, Wilson, Titliest, Cobra, Mizuno and Ping. Unfortunately the Taylor Made rep missed his flight and didnt show so missed out on that which was unfortunate.

    The Callaway epic was the best driver for me, but all of them performed well once the guys were able to adjust the weights and shafts to suit my swing. The new Titleist was a very close 2nd.

    For irons, I really liked the Wilson C200 and D200 sets but again, all of them performed well. A few free tips and Trackman swings to identify easy fixes on small things also. I'm a pretty bad golfer so it was worth it for that alone.

    The big thing I found out is that I need a stiff flex shafts. My current driver and woods have way more flex because they're bottom dollar clubs. Even hitting the Callaway Epic with more flex and didn't get near the results of a stiff.

    Side note, there was a 14 year old kid next to me hitting the same Callaway driver at the same time, and he was killing it everytime. After a few minutes a crowd was gathered to watch him 1 hop the end screen of the driving range with every hit. And the end screen is about 270 yards, not bad for 14

    I bought the new Titleist driver last month. Found the Epic too hot, too much spin. Typical of Callaway drivers.

    The Golf Channel was the worst for the DCP tour for the kids... that dork has no inclination on how to interview the kids.

    And this is why golf has the reputation it does regarding rules and nitpicky bullshit

    Yes. A guy watching TV gets to call up the LPGA and say he saw an error by a player and then she gets a 4 stroke penalty. Just garbage
