Mygolfspy Forum goes to 

 

Cleveland-Launcher-2-1027.jpg

 

Cleveland Golf HQ to get

 

"Fit like a Pro"

 

 

Hey gang!

 

Tomorrow is the big day where 2 lucky forum members will be jetting off to Huntington Beach, CA to visit Cleveland Golf and get fit like a pro for a full bag of new sticks.  We will have access to the new line of HB Woods, HB Irons, CBX irons and wedges along with the RTX wedges, Huntington Beach & TFi Putters and Srixon balls and everybody comes home with 14 new clubs driver through putter.

 

Our two lucky members for this trip are:

 

McaseyM

 

Jiro

 

They will be joined by Golfspy Barbajo and Golfspy Meyer.  We'll be heading out early tomorrow AM and then will have a full afternoon of fitting followed by dinner.  Wednesday morning will be a tour of the HQ followed by a round of golf with our new sticks in the afternoon.

 

We will all be posting in this thread and you can also follow along on social media via Twitter and Instagram.  Make sure to follow Mygolfspy, Golfspy Barbajo and Golfspy Meyer for all the live action.

 

Feel free to post questions and comments in this thread as well and we will do our best to get to them.  This is going to be a blast!

A quick funny to get this started.  

 

I started to lay out some clothes for the trip.  Shorts and short sleeve golf polos.  My wife is watching me and goes "aren't you going to be cold?"  I kind of looked at her funny and then it hit me.  Honey I'm going to Cleveland Golf, not Cleveland, OH.  It's in Huntington Beach, CA.

 

She had no idea I was headed to Cally.

Enjoy I would like to know how they decide which irons are best for each player and if they have a way to differentiate shafts if it's something like Mizuno does.

Awesome stuff! This should be a good time.

Are you guys going to do intro posts at all? Would like to see how your games compare to mine so I know if any of the Cleveland clubs might be a good fit.

It’s great to see Cleveland back with a full line up this year. The last couple of years they haven’t had irons or metal woods. So currently there are 2 iron models—one appears to be in the GI category and one in the SGI—see pics below—CBX and HB. There is currently only one model for metal woods. That being said, they are meant for higher handicaps. Players club offerings are currently being sold under the Srixon moniker. I have no idea if they plan on keeping this dichotomy but think it would be interesting to ask them about it.
As for me, I am a high handicap that struggles with consistency, like many other high handicaps. So I am excited to try these clubs and see what they can do.

My game...jack of all trades, master of none.  I'm currently a 5 handicap.  I started the year at a 2.9 and had a great first month.  Then I forgot how to swing for June and July.  Started to get it back for the last couple months of the season.

 

My bag is in my signature, but I play 4 wedges, 4 irons and then the top of the bag is 3w and hybrids and could be any mix of that.  I also have a 4i I reshafted with a Whiteboard hybrid shaft that spends some time in the lineup.  Depends on playing conditions as to what I put in there.

 

Generally speaking the driver is a strong point for me.  I hit it decently long for the group of guys I play with.  Maybe 260-280 is a normal drive.  Really bad or really good could be little longer or shorter.  Typically driver doesn't get me in too much trouble.  I have a 3w and hybrids for the long clubs.  They are generally pretty consistent   My irons are also generally decent.  If I'm on I'll hit a lot of greens, if I'm off I spend the day trying to get up and down.  Full swing wedge play is ok, my miss is usually a dig that comes up short.

 

Where I struggle (or at least would like to improve) is 60yds and in.  I'm not great at taking off distance on shots.  I'd also like to get better with chipping or pitching around the greens.  Putting is streaky, some days I'll make everything and others my distance control is non-existent.  I actually have a putt named after me with the guys I play with.  If you blow the first one by 5-10' and make the combacker it's called a Meyer.

 

I don't tend to work the ball a lot and play most shots strait.  I can play a draw with driver, and get the occasional snap hook with hybrids, but generally if my ball is going to move it will be a fade.  I have a fairly quick swing/transition.  My miss is typically to get too steep and dig or to get too fast and come over the top.

 

I don't think I have any one area that I excel at, but also not one major area that I'm terrible at.  Of course all of that can and does easily change from round to round.
