Hi Team Titleist,
I got a new set of 716 AP1s a little over a week ago. I had the pleasure of going to a Titleist Thursday session, which was great. John Feekin did an excellent job at Falconhead Golf Club here in Austin, TX. During the session we dialed in to the Project X LZ shaft with 1/2" longer than standard length and a 2* upright lie angle. During the fitting, it felt amazing. Contact was pure and distance, trajectory, spin, everything on trackman fit the bill.
Fast forward a couple weeks to getting the set in and it's a different story. I've now played 5 rounds with these irons and am slowly learning how to hit them. My miss has always been a push with my irons, maybe even a bit of a fade at times. From day one with this new set I have had a big draw/snap hook at times. And it's worse with the shorter clubs like the PW and 9 iron. The 3 iron ironically I'm hitting awesome with no hook at all!
My question is, have any of you experienced a hard adjustment like this when switching to longer shafts or different lie angles? I'm chalking it up to just the "adjustment period," but wondering if I should go get the lie angles checked? I know that a large part of this is likely due to user error (i.e. my swing), and not the fantastic new clubs, but I can't help but think something is a little off when one day with my old clubs I'm hitting a push, and the very next day I'm hitting a snap hook!
Thanks for any input anyone may have,
