Club fitting worth it for high handicappers?

Recommended Posts

I went to Golf Galaxy to try some irons and left disappointed. For one, I do not think the LM was accurate as it stated my swing speed varied from 48 to 72 mph and that I only hit my 7-iron 130 yards. In fact, I consistently hit my 7-iron 155 yards at the range and on the course.


With that being said, the employee gave me a Taylormade M4 that was 2* flat and it made a world of difference in the quality of contact that I was making with the ball. All this to say, I think that a basic fitting for a high handicap player can make a significant difference. Unfortunately, I can't bend my 13-year-old Taylormade RAC CGB irons...
