True Golf Fit

Recommended Posts

Anybody else try this, I was truly disappointed.   The process is simple, in fact far to simple, who knows exactly what their subjective tempo is.  And how much

this makes a difference.   I have a slow back swing,  at least my results are better with one, and an aggressive forward swing.  

I have a Zepp sensor so I know my real tempo, and I use a Sports Sciences radar so I know my swing speed range, so give me the option of

putting in my exact tempo.   The results were even more disappointing, only two driver results were shown,  no where was the loft recommendation

nor shaft recommendation listed.   And after navigating around the site, the two driver recommendations were reversed.   Originally it listed

the Srixon 765 as the longest,  then, it listed the 565 as the longest.  These are both 2017 models, so are those models better than the 2018 versions?

And there was supposedly a 12 yard range between the two, so after looking around I am confused, I wonder if other drivers fit in between these two and

I wonder if I wasted my $7 on useless information.

Fortunately, there is a review underway (the thread hasn't been posted yet), where testers are being sent their top recommendations to test. I agree that there seems to be a lot missing to make such a recommendation but trust that Adam and Tony have done their homework and have isolated the most important variables?

Just an update for the forum. We're working through some logistical issues with Global Golf. Hopefully they are able to resolve them and proceed with the review.

I know everyone is anxious to hear about results of the reviewers TGF fitting.

 Yes, I tried this and was very disappointed with the results. I do not recommend this because it only showed two drivers a Srixon (must be a sponsored make because it was mentioned in the above post) and some brand I have never heard of,.and as mentioned  before, no loft or shaft recommendations. The "buy now" buttons was a big red flag it is a sales tool for a retailer. I do not recommend this "fitting tool" to anyone. You still would be better suited to go to you local golf store and try demo clubs to fit yourself. I forgot to mention this fitting tool does not send the results to you email. It is a one and done thing

Have you guys read the articles and the other threads regarding the True Golf Fit, it is only a fitting recommendation tool based on trackman data.  Its for people who buy off the shelf and don't get fitted.  It just give's you options to try based on data, there is an expert mode to add your actual swing speed and angle of attack to help fine tune so to speak.  So when you go in to demo driver's you can say hey I hit these one's usually but I would like to try the Srixon and Mizuno line and maybe Tour Edge drivers.  Just thought you guys should know that it's no way designed to give you the exact driver you need,  just to give you options to help narrow your choice.

Also remember this is release 1. Adam commented in this thread that future versions will add things like loft and shaft.

This comment in your post stands out to me as being a bit of sour grapes because your preferred make wasn't shown. IF you know anything about MGS, you'd KNOW they don't accept sponsorship from the OEMs, so because of this comment, I'd have to discount the rest of your "review".

If you bothered to read the post I stated that the fitting tool (not MyGolfSpy) must have a retailer sponsor because two very different golfers were advised to buy a Srixon and a "buy now" button attached to the recommendation. There was no need to get all butt-hurt about it. I am entitled to my opinion and I said I would not recommend the online tool. I rely on MyGolfSpy for unbiased information. In closing I hope you had fun being a troll.

He's not being a troll. He's correcting your misinformation.

Neither mygolfspy nor TrueGolfFit are sponsored at all be any major golf equipment manufacturers.

Please read my response to the other person whom I quoted. I do not like when a fitting tool refers you to an online store. There was no loft or shaft recommendations. I watched the video where the current driver was evaluated and two driver recommendations were offered. The online tool did not ask my current driver loft or brand. I strongly recommend you keep your personal judgement to yourselves. It is my opinion that the driver fitting tool needs to ask more questions. I see that you use Srixon equipment I guess you and your friend are offended because I mentioned that brand. I will try the drivers recommended by the tool to compare. Please do not comment or respond as you are judging me and others who do not like the online tool as it stands

Ok, everyone, let's keep this about the TGF fitting tool, and not about each other.

Alllllllrighty then.

Thanks, Tony!

I tried the tool, and even though it’s not perfect since it’s version 1.0, I do think it WILL be a great tool for those unable to be fitted. Can’t wait for version 12.1...... Which is where Apple is. Just sayin’. Be patient, folks, and believe in what you’re being given. It’s on the up-and-up.

I haven’t tried this since it’s first day, so I was curious to see what it would recommend for me.... Pretty cool that my current gamer is the 2nd Option, different shaft

Were you fit for the TS3?  Any thoughts on going to a Titleist Thursday and seeing what that shaft will do?

Yes, I went through three fittings before selecting the TS3. Ive been through two PXG fittings with their reps, and never have hit the XF because of spin. XF is “spinnier” than the X.
