Got professionally fitted for the first time this past week -- learned a TON!
Had been playing Ping G-15's with the ATW standard flex shaft. Also played some Hogan Apex Plus irons bought on eBay with the Apex 4 shaft. Had a tough 2011 (Handicap went UP 2.5 strokes), but played better with the Hogans.
After 1.5 hrs (and some bad outside-in swings), the fitter shows me the stats and with the right shaft/loft/lie/swing weight I was hitting the sweet spot more often (toe hits were a problem) and picking up ball speed, carry and length. Here's what he came up with for recommendations:
Dynamic Gold or Rifle Shaft, X-100 flex with high flex point
D-6 swing weight (didn't do well with light clubs)
37" length for 7 iron, lie angle of 61
Hit an Alpha forged players cavity back and a Louisville Golf blade with both shafts -- both felt great. Am looking at Wilson FG Tour V2's in a couple of weeks at a GG event.
Fitting was a great experience -- learned the Ping shafts were way to flexible for my swing, and the club was way too light. Combine that with the offset no wonder I was going left a LOT.
Anyone know anything about Alpha or Louisville golf? Any experience with the Wilsons?
