Hey guys, just wondering when/if I should get fitted. I've now been golfing for about three and half years, and this year has been my biggest in making steps towards a better game. I started this season (late april-present) beginning on hitting a handicap of around 12-15. Currently playing some of my best golf right now I've been averaging a handicap of about 6 to 8. I feel like my swing and club control has gotten a lot better, but still seem to have some yips. I sometimes tend to think it might be affect due to unfitted clubs.

 

I also question if fitting would really changed with my body type. Im 5'8" and have a wingspan of 6'1.5".

If you've come down to single digits with OTR clubs... I can only wonder what perfectly fit clubs would do to your game. Go for it! You could be a + handicapper by now :D

I played for many years with OTS clubs that were the wrong lie and length and reached a solid 10 hcap. Then I was fitted for a driver by a class A fitter and it changed my game! I eventually was fitted for a complete set, expensive, about $1200 then, but my game and enjoyment increased dramatically! I would however recommend getting fitted for your long game first, metal woods and hybrid. The short game requires touch not power so fitted clubs won't make a great diff.

FOUR! (tr99)

I know guys that want to wait until their swing is in top form before going in for a fitting.

 

I actually like getting fit when my swing is a little off because I like to see how the club handles my misses. I figure most clubs will treat me right when I'm hitting it well, so I'd rather focus on the other side of it. I was fit into my current driver when I was in a funk and it's been a great club regardless of how I'm playing.

Yup, I remember how you got fit into that driver and it was definitely performing the best when you were off. Definitely made the right call
