Looking For Some New Clubs?
Common errors when buying new equipment.
You hit your buddy’s club and really liked it, now you’re in my store wanting to buy one. A clubfitter would prefer you to bring his driver in so he can
look at it to see what makes it so special. Most
likely his shaft is the exact frequency match (stiffness) for you and the one you are using is not.
Changing your shaft may solve your issue and save you HUNDREDS of dollars! It’s best to schedule a driver fitting to make sure you get a club
and shaft combination that
is going to perform the best for YOUR swing.
I’ve hit ‘Brand X’ since I could swing a club, and I will always play ‘Brand X’ as long as I’m a golfer. If you’re one of these guys there may not be any
swaying you, but at least go thru a fitting session to determine if ‘Brand X’ is performing the best for you. At the minimum the clubfitter can make
sure you’re hitting the correct model of ‘Brand X’.
I want to hit what the pros hit...
Playing the same clubs that your favorite tour player uses is not going to guarantee you lower scores. Chances are, you will not have the same
swing characteristics to warrant having the same set. Assuming you’re playing golf to shoot lower scores, it’s much better to find the clubs which
are right for YOUR game..
