  1. I golfed with a gentleman today who claimed that golf shafts "wear out" and need to be replaced every 4 years (assuming 50 rounds per year). Can anyone (equipment junkies, club builders, club fitters, etc.) please chime in with your thoughts on this? Is this a valid claim?
  2. I've been trying to track down a fitter/golf shop somewhat near me and I finally found contact information for the guy and it's on a website for a company called Rational Golf. Everything about the system they propose seems very strange to me because they tout ideas like swing weights were made for wooden clubs and therefore irrelevant to modern golf clubs. It also seems like they are part of the single swing plane/one length iron school of thought. While I wait to hear back from the fitter to see if he's even still in business, has anyone out there ever been through a fitting with so
  3. I'm still working on typing up my experience: but I figured I'd post the Sam Puttlab results 1st for my fellow tech-nerds...
  4. I live in Birmingham, AL, and am wanting to get fitted for a putter. The problem all lefties have is finding a place that has ample selection so you can test a good variety of putters. Has anyone gone to anyplace around here and enjoyed the process? What stores would you suggest? Thanks.
  5. Looking for some used lie/loft machine. Just a hobbyist, nothing needed that is professional.
  6. So if you all didn't see it last week the winner for the MGS trip to Titleist TPI for a full bag fitting including airfare and lodging was announced. I'm glad to say it went to someone who was already signed up on the forum as a member. Please Congratulate Jim AKA @jrshields3 on what is sure to be an unforgettable experience. Yes people really do win these trips and they aren't some marketing gimmick..despite what some may say. He doesn't have dates for the trip set yet, but said he'd be happy to keep the forum updated on the events leading up to the trip and then share the whole
  7. Anyone done a Club Champion putter fitting? Currently just using a Ping Anser 2 I bought when I first started playing golf, and very curious how much my game would improve with a fit putter.
  8. Hi All, I am currently taking lessons at Golf Tec and have "earned" two fittings through my time there. Additionally, (as a Bday gift) I received $200 towards a fitting at TrueSpec Golf which I will use at the Doral location. I have had my current irons (Ping K15's) for about 10 years and bought them on craigslist. My Cobra F7 and Ping G 5-wood and 3H I also bought on Ebay and have never been fit for clubs before. I assume TrueSpec has a larger selection of shaft options as well as Iron heads. Should I do my iron fitting with True Spec and my Driver at GolfTec? Should I do an Ir
  9. Hi All, So last spring I went to True Spec Golf and got a full bag fitting. The only clubs not fitted were the Ping Wedges and the putter. I just changed the shaft in the putter last week to The Stability Shaft and regripped the bag with Lamkin Sonar Tour Calibrate. I'm pretty sure it's the Indian not the arrow now. Here's all the deets. IRONS Apex 19 5-AW Shafts NIPPON NS950 S 5I WEDGES PING Glide 2.0 Stealth 54° & 58° SS DRIVER M6 9° Shaft FUJIKURA TSG PRO XLR8 61 S 3 WOOD M6 Shaft OBAN I
  10. Look there is a ton of confusing information out there about pured shafts and if it actually matters. If it did i would think that every tour player would have it done. I’ve seen claims of yardage increases and various other claims are there any truths to it?
  11. Great forum, great community, and I am sure one of the knowledgeable members has come across this question before (or, can point me in the right direction). I have used the search bar some to pin point this topic to some effect, but haven't come across the answer that satisfies my curiosity. I already know and understand a dynamic fitting and static fitting work best for shaft fitting and it's hard to beat a good (and patient) fitter. My question pertains to online iron shaft fitting/recommendations from most of the shaft manufacturers and/or online fitting services: How relevant is a
  12. 5 Question with GolfTEC Vice President of Instruction and Education and Master PGA Professional Andy Hilts For the past 20 years, GolfTEC has been training and educating golfers globally from Denver to Tokyo. Our very own Mr. Theoo is a GolfTEC student and the progression his game over the last year is a testament to what GolfTEC strives to accomplish with it's players. It's very exciting to have the opportunity to do a 5 questions with GolfTEC Vice President of Instruction and Education and Master PGA Professional, Andy Hills, to learn a little more of what's made GolfTEC the su
  13. As an avid MGS'er, you know doubt have read about, or even tried, TrueGolfFit - Adam and Tony's personalized online golf fitting engine. You give TrueGolfFit what amounts to your swing DNA, and the engine's algorithms search and filter the mountain of data MyGolfSpy has collected over the years to deliver to you your best fit and first alternative driver.

For $25 Global Golf will send you the driver of your choice, brand-new and unopened, to try on your home course for two
  14. Matt Saternus (used to be with MGS) of PluggedInGolf.com posted an interesting article... "Do wedge shafts matter?" https://pluggedingolf.com/do-wedge-shafts-matter-golf-myths-unplugged/ He tested in a similar style to MGS using a variety of recreational players and identical wedge heads with different shafts, then swapping them among the players and having them hit different short game shots. Results are measured by Trackman at a Club Champion. The questions he was looking to "Confirm" or "Bust" include... Myth #1 – A wedge shaft can create more spin Myth #2 – A
  15. Hi everyone, I just joined, and I appreciate the forum. Cool, just what I was looking for. I am trying to understand why I am hooking my new Apex Pro Irons. My previous irons, Taylor Made, I couldn't draw to save my life, payed them straight or with a slight fade. I was fitted with the Callaway irons and they looked pretty good on the monitor, good feel, 4,000 rpm, pretty straight. The issue I am 6'6" and I play 2 degrees upright, 1.5 inches longer, and jumbo grips. So what I test isn't exactly what I get. The shaft is True Temper XP 95, S300. I received the production c
  16. My family presented me with the opportunity to buy any putter I wanted really and would love to do a bit more than just go find something at PGA Tour Superstore that I happen to like that day as that's how I bought the two putters I've used the last five years or so. I know should probably be looking for SAM labs but if anyone has recommendations as to who or where or any other advice I'd love to hear it! Do know of Club Champion & the Southlake Golf Galaxy have the SAM lab but that's about it so far as haven't had a ton of time to research.
  17. In Short: I cannot imagine having a more enjoyable club fitting experience anywhere else and look forward to a putter fitting with True Spec in the near future. I haven't seen too many threads providing fitting experiences/reviews, especially with True Spec Golf (https://www.truespecgolf.com/). For those of you not familiar with True Spec, here are highlights: Founded in 2014 15 Locations in 6 Countries: North America: Bronx (NY), Chicago (IL), Columbus (OH), Jupiter (FL), Miami (FL), Naples (FL), New York City (NY), Orlando (FL), and Nassau (Bahamas) Europe: Geneva (Switzerland), Sotogra
  18. I've always been fit to 3/4 or 1" over in iron fittings, depending on the OEM and their standard length. But recently I went to a demo where I wanted try two different shafts in the same iron. But they only had one shaft in 1/2 over and the other in the 1" over. I hit the 1" well enough, mostly like my normal shaft length. Then when I tried the 1/2 it was like magic, every shot seemed flushed and seemed to have much more solid contact. Could it be similar to drivers, where the shorter shaft gave me much more control thus producing more consistent contact. I know the answer seems obviou
  19. I'm a college player in the southern part of Connecticut. When I'm in school in the midwest, we work with Miles of Golf in Ann Arbor, MI to get fittings. I want to find a place where I can hit several driver shafts without having to pay $125 for a fitting. (College-Friendly fitting places) Any suggestions on locations? (Willing to drive into NYC / Hartford Areas)
  20. So, I've never been fit for clubs in my life. The clubs I have now I bought roughly 7 years ago and I pieced the set together based almost wholly on looks, company reputation, my OCD tendencies (hence the same brand throughout) and if I'm being honest, something less popular. (I can be weirdly contrarian like that). That said, I like my clubs well enough, but I'm not certain if they're truly appropriate for me. So, when I say "fitting" what I really mean is current club evaluation and length/lie & shaft recommendations and adjustments to my current clubs. I'm not opposed to, for ins
  21. I am about to purchase an EVNROLL ER2 putter. The problem is I don't live anywhere close enough to actually try one and get fitted for one. I am basically doing a fitting through text and email with the rep at EVNROLL. I currently use a Ping Scottsdale TR Anser 2 B 35". I am 5'9 and The rep has seen the attached videos. I am hoping that someone here will be able to either verify what he is saying or help me get a good length and lie putter. See the videos below. Please help me!! P.S. He says I need a 33" putter and 2 degrees flat.
  22. Modern Golf - Part One One of my favorite things to do at various stages of my life has been to just sit back, relax and reflect on where life has taken me. It's an interesting idea. We are so focused on living our lives looking forward, planning the next move, or in the simplest context simply focusing on the here and now. But when we stop, reflect and truly look at ourselves for who we are, there are some questions you ask yourself. Such as: What makes me who I am? Here's how this applies. A huge part of who I am is built around this sport, and really, this site. I found my career on the
  23. How have you gone about choosing the grinds on your wedges? Have you been fitted? How did they determine the grind for you based on your fitting? Have you just done trial and error? When it comes to wedges they may be the most important clubs in your bag next to your putter for cutting strokes and lowering your handicap. So in looking to pick up another wedge set I am wondering how to go about picking grinds? Is it possible to figure this out without hitting the shots you would on the course?
  24. Hi Everyone, I am a Professional based in Holland and have a company called Burley Golf Development. My work involves developing Coaching, Fitting & Equipment and I am interested in feedback and keeping up to date with new developments within the world of putting. Glad to be involved and I look forward to some interesting discussions! Stuart Burley
  25. I would like to ask you to take time out to answer a few questions for research purposes. 1, What putter do you use and why? 2, What are the specs of your putter? 3, How long have you been using the current putter in your bag? 4, Do you commit to a specific method? 5, How do you rate your putting performance on a scale of 1 to 10? I look forward to your responses
