Yep swear by fitting as well. My clubs have never felt better nor myself confident over them. To me it eliminates any question mark about where the issue might be.

 

Although my score didn't translate yesterday I hit some great shots when I put the right swing on them. I had my lies and lofts adjusted Saturday morning and while playing yesterday I noticed chalk and cheese difference between the before and after.

 

Honestly to me its a feel thing and I know when my swing is off or when a club is incorrect. Without getting things adjusted and fitted correctly I would still be in no mans land blaming clubs and not trying to fix swing faults.

 

Still stand by this! Was reading through this because of the Perth Fitting thread and thought back to seeing Jon while on holidays. Again clubs feel great and "in tune" so to speak. Chalk and Cheese difference.

 

Now feeling the clubs suit me rather than me trying to suit my clubs is the best way I can explain it.

Thought this may be the best place to ask these questions.. not sure if somewhere better? I’m an on again off again golfer but about to sign up for a membership for the first time and want to give it a proper crack.. I can shoot anywhere between 95-110 as a general guide.. I have Taylor made burners that my old man bought off the rack for me 5 years ago .. I have felt for a while like they may not be suited for me but never could be sure ..

I’ve never played a whole year consistently so have never seen my scores come down but am keen to do that this year if I sign up..

So my questions .. I’d like to get fitted but money is a factor .. is it possible to get fitted with the right clubs for me for not too much over the 1k mark? Would probably like most clubs included in that but could look to exclude a driver to stay close to the budget ..

I’ve looked online for a fitter.. I live in Cranbourne in Melbourne so not sure where to start?

I’ve hesrd before to wait until your swing is sorted before fitting but to be honest I feel like it will help me to know the clubs I have in my hand are right for me..

Any help would be much appreciated !

Cheers

One option is to have some lessons and talk to the pro about whether it’s worth changing clubs.

Have read a bit of the thread about him. Does he have a good range of brands and new clubs or is he more so for adjusting current ones to fit better ?

Mate, if you have a read of the summary in my profile then check out the details in my 'journey, journal' thread on here, you'll see I did the whole club fitting and new clubs thing just on 12 months ago.

I'm a hack and no expert, but my $0.02 worth is if you're not confident in your clubs you'll have doubt with your swing.

The latest and greatest Driver, irons or wedge won't make you a tour player, but, a proper club fitting will help eliminate some misses and issues. That way you can concentrate on your swing without having to compensate for ill fit clubs.

Clubfitting can be expensive but really depends on where you go. Some places try to make it an elite thing with a price to match. Others, see it as essential and provide exceptional value for money.

As you'll see from your research it can be a few hundred dollars... Or, not. For me, I known, my full bag fitting and new clubs cost me less than retail prices (i.e club fitting plus club cost = less than retail for the clubs alone)... I used Drummond and Golfworld prices as my benchmark and know, full fitting Driver to Putter including clubs was, across the bag 10% less, yes ... LESS.

You've been given a good tip to go and at least talk to Jon, golfguy33, from on here. It's his profession and a lot of guys and gals (Deege has even named her new driver after him) have success from his services. At least go and have a chat to him...

Keep us updated on you progress and what you learn, find, with the club fitting. If you get new clubs, remember to post pictures on here too!

Jon at TGP can fit you out to a budget. Depends on what you want to spend. Pretty sure he can sort you out for under $1k.

The question is do you get fitted for a poor swing that as it improves it will throw your fitting out or do you have lessons and get some consistency before fitting.

You need to decide what you want and how much time are you prepared to put in and wait.

If you want to just improve on what you have at the moment then get fitted, but if you want to really get better have some lessons.

No point getting lie angles adjusted to suit a high hand delivery if you improve your swing and your clubhead delivery.

A fitting can be a bandaid for a poor swing or it could be the difference between good shots and bad ones everyone is unique, just my opinion.

Agree. That why I said get lessons first. You will probably be unpleasantly surprised, as I was, at how little difference fitted new clubs will make to your score. A scratch golfer can play with any clubs and do okay. A hacker can have perfect clubs and still will hack. I’ve improved more with $500 spent on lessons than $2000+ spent on clubs
