  2. I recently realized that all clubs are not created equal and that certain clubs fit certain swings. With that knowledge I decided to overhaul my entire bag a little at a time. I did this by going to one of the nationally known golf stores where they fit you for free and don’t require you to make a purchase. The first few times I went, I worked with who ever greeted me at the door. I soon realized that some knew their stuff better than others. On subsequent trips, I would seek that person out. Where I really got improvement was in the driver fitting. Thanks to MGS, I discovered the importance of launch angle and back spin. My old driver was robbing me of yards. I went and saw the guy I trusted at the nationally known store, and he showed me I was over 5,000 RPM and hitting too high of a launch angle with my old driver. He worked with me for two hours and through 5 different drivers. Some of the drivers we even used multiple shafts. Did you know the same driver head can give you different results with just a change in shaft? I didn’t. I ended up with my much loved Ping G410 plus. The point is, I don’t know if I would pay for a fitting but I highly recommend that you get fitted before spending your hard earned cash on a new driver. My fitting resulted in more yards and according to Arrcos, a 5-10% increase in fairways hit.
  3. How long have you been playing golf? I got started golfing when I was 11 with an old set of clubs sitting in the basement. I guess that makes it 38 years What’s your handicap or normal score? 14 What do you love about golf? I love the competition against yourself and being outdoors. What brings you to MyGolfSpy?
