  1. I will post an update when I eventually get fitted. Unfortunately with the way the world is right now it's looking like it might not be until this fall or 2021. My wife's company has been severely impacted by COVID and is currently on reduced pay with the potential for layoffs in the fall. My instructor went down to visit the facilities and talked with fitter and his boss. He said they seemed good and the facility was very nice. It's definitely the route I'm going to go. I also visited the Roswell PGA Superstore before COVID. The facility looks very nice. The fitter told me they'd just switched to trackmans from GC Quads. While the club selection and tech is basically the same, I think being able to hit outside and with a PGA pro is worth the extra money over PGA Superstore.

  3. Thanks for all the info and feedback! I've decided to go to the new Grand Slam Academy at Bobby Jones in Atlanta. They have 1 guy who does all of their fittings in addition to instruction. Since PGA SS is a sponsor of the new renovations, BBJ has the same setup as the fitting van experience at PGA SS with all the stock shafts and 80+ extra shafts. While both PGA SS and Bobby Jones use trackman, the biggest benefit to Bobby Jones is that it's outside vs being inside only. They then order your club and mail it to you. It's the same price as buying through PGA SS since that's who they order through. I'll post a review of my experience on here once I go and get fit, though I'm putting this on hold until the Coronavirus sorts itself out.
  4. Thanks for all the feedback everyone! I have an understanding of some of the numbers I need to try and hit (+/-2K spin rate and around 15 degree launch angle). I have a pretty fast club head speed and play x100 true temper shafts on my irons so I probably need X stiffness on the driver (but I'll let the expert help on that). I've read that the fitter who does the "Fitting Van Experience" at the Roswell PGA Tour Superstore does a good job and is supposedly a Master Fitter per his linkedin. I didn't know if anyone had any experience working with him (Robert Bertrand). They have GC Quads which seem to be better than trackman from what I've seen. They're also 1/3 the price of of Club Champion so if he's good is CC worth the extra money. There is also an independent fitter, Golf Doctor, that seems to have good reviews and I want to see if anyone has any experience working with them. Since I plan to keep this driver for 5+ years I don't want to cheap out, but I also don't want to spend money for the sake of spending money @Headhammer do you know what other brands they fit for? I only see TaylorMade listed on their website? Thanks!
  5. I'd love to have Lefty and Hole in 1 added to my profile. Thanks!
  6. Hi All, I'm new to the forums. I searched to see if someone had posted about this and didn't find anything, so I'm sorry if this is duplicative. I'm looking to get a new driver to replace my 10+ year old stock Ping G15. I want to see if anyone has any recommendations on where to go get a good fitting. There is both a Golftec and Club Champion not too far from my house. I've heard that CC can force you into crazy expensive shafts and I'm not looking to spend an inordinate amount of money on this club. I'd gotten my irons at Edwin Watts, but I'm not sure they'll give me a comprehensive fitting for a driver. Does anyone have any recommendations for fitters/experiences at golftec or club champion? Thanks for the help!
  7. I've been playing golf since I was 5 or 6, but I got more serious about golf in high school. I generally shoot in the mid 80's to low 90's, though I'm trying to improve that with lessons. I love that it's always a challenge and that you can always get better. I'm getting more serious about golf and want to get data driven reviews. I do not know any other spies. I'm originally from CT, but now live in Smyrna, GA (just outside of Atlanta). I don't have a home course, I try to rotate among the public courses in the area. All of the best courses are private. Playing the public courses can lead to painfully slow rounds. I work for The Home Depot My user name is a combination of my initials, my college mascot (Wake Forest Demon Deacons), and my sports number
