Fitting for lefties.

Hi. I'm from the Pensacola Florida area and have an extremely hard time getting fit due to a lack of left handed demo clubs. Especially when it comes to putters. The Edwin Watts I deal with says it's because the nearest rep is in Jacksonville and we are on the extreme edge of his territory so he spends most of his time in the larger cities farther east. Any advice or help?

Oh dear! Another sad story for lefties. Come on Titleist, time to get get it sorted! You have a chance to put all this right with the advent of the 913 range, so lets see some improvement for lefties please.

Hi Shane,  You are at the far end of the panhandle and we do not have many fitters in your area.  I have sent an email to both our Florida rep and our Alabama rep to see what they recommend and how we can help you get fit for clubs.  With the exception of the LH 7.5 driver head, we have LH heads in all our clubs, both metalwoods and irons.  Any Advanced Fitter will carry all the LH heads.

I really can't complain.  I didn't plan or desire to get Titleist clubs, but it pretty much comes down to 2 OEMs that provide a relative full range of clubs to those of us that are sinister.  Other OEMs may or may not have adequate LH heads in their carts, but once they do, then I can get fitted for the 9 or 10.5 driver, the 3 or 5 wood, and the 3 or 4 hybrid.  Then we can move onto 2 of their 4 or 5 lines of irons.  At least I won't be tempted by the off the rack clubs that aren't on the rack, instead of getting fitted. <sigh>.

The other OEM just came out with their first adjustable driver, but it only goes +/- 0.5 degrees, so I'll hope the 913 D line will be released with all the LH options they have today (the 7.5 is not on my radar...).  My good fortune is living 8 miles from an Advanced Fitting Center or I might have never gotten off of musical chairs club fitting on the internet.

At least the TT folks do work with the field agents to try to get fitting equipment moved to a mutually acceptable site for a fitting.  Not as convenient as living near one but having more options is worth it.

I am afraid that not all Advanced fitters are carrying all 910 LH Heads now, this fact has been mentioned on Team titleist on a few occasions, by members of the public. My local Titleist Fitter for example has no 910 D3 head in his cart, in fact if you can't be fitted into a 910 9.5 D2 then you will be outa luck as a lefty, and I believe that other members has pointed out similar issues in the past.

Hi Shane,  We have been keeping an eye out for events in your area where we will have the putters.  On November 18th, we will be doing a fitting day at Timbercreek GC in Spanish Fort, AL. 36527, from 10am to 2pm.  Tommy Foxworth is the person to talk with and his number is:  251.621.9900.  They will be fitting both the new 913 drivers and will have all the putters.  Please call them if you are planning to go as they are making appointments for the day.

Cathi - To settle the discussion, do Titleis reps have access to all the lofts of the D/F/H if Advanced Fitters aren't supplied with them on their carts? ...For left-handed golfers? I don't mind scheduling a time at my local club to give them time to hook up with the rep they need. I'd like to try a 12 degree driver and a 19 degree wood. At the time I was fit, they did have a 910F in 21 degrees. Most of the OEM vendors can't even supply 17/21F and 24/27 H sample - because they don't even sell them to the public.

HI Don,  All Advanced FittingWorks Centers have every head we offer in both LH and RH as do our Reps who use them for fitting days.
