I'm traveling to San Diego from Texas and I can either play at Torrey Pines or go through the Titleist Tour Fitting experience at the testing facility in Oceanside. I am wondering if the tour fitting is worth it or if I should just take my clubs and play Torrey Pines.
I've been playing for 2 years now and shoot consistently in the low 80's occasional high 70's. I'd like to eventually get some new clubs (blades) and am considering all options.
Would the Titleist Tour Fitting specs be universal for all manufacturers? I was fit by another manufacturer at golfsmith with the following specs:
Head Speed (6-iron): 93 Tempo: 5 Toe Down: 3 Kick Angle: 5 Release Factor: 4 Length: Standard Lie Angle: 61 Loft: Standard
Can someone offer me some feedback regarding the tour fitting and if it's worth it in my situation. All comments welcome.
I may be biased, but, I think the Tour Fitting is definitely worth it. It's an awesome place and these fitters are some of the most experienced that fit for Titleist. They fit and work with our Tour players on an ongoing basis and the matrix they use is the largest in the country. As far as your specs from another manufacturer, they will be a general guideline. In other words, you may hit "standard" length and loft" (if their standard is the same as our standard), and would tend to be flat on the irons. It really depends on the iron head itself. If you are going to invest in new clubs (blades), I don't think you can go wrong getting fit for them.

Thanks for the quick reply Cathi!
I am leaning toward signing up for the tour fitting. What are your thoughts on the 710MB's for a high 70's low 80's player? I currently play cavity backs from another manufacturer (I know I need to make the switch to Titleist) and I strike the ball very well with my inconsistent play coming from the 3 & 4 iron.
Blades are what I'd like to upgrade to but I'm just unsure b/c what really attracts me to them are their look and feel which I have read about. With the cavity backs most strikes feel the same and my distance control is not all that great with my current clubs. I'd really like to start shooting mid to low 70's, event-though my weakness is scoring b/c I have no problem reaching GIR or under regulation.
You've probably answered this question a million times but I am curious to get your feedback.
The MB's are about 10% smaller than the CB's and a little less forgiving. In general, you can play the MB's if you are a good, solid ball striker that hits the ball in the same place on the face and wants to work the ball. A fitter will be able to show you the difference in launch, spin, distance and dispersion so that you can make a more informed decision as to which model you will be able to play the most consistently. At O'side, you will be able to hit these side by side, long iron, mid iron and short iron and have the numbers to feel confident that your choice is the correct one.
Don't think twice about it -- do the tour fitting. I just went through one last week and it is without question the best money you will spend on golf this year. Going through the entire process, drivers - fairway woods - hybrids - irons - wedges, will teach you more about your own game and how to get the most out of it than you can imagine. To get the most out of the session, however, don't go in with preconceived notions of what you will and won't accept -- try everything and believe the numbers. You may be looking for blades, but if a cavity back gives you better consistency, don't fight it. The real benefit of the tour fitting process is that you can try every configuration of club head, shaft, lie, loft and length imaginable. This is not a theoretical fitting using computer projected results -- you will hit the exact club you want to, set up the way you want it, using the ball you want to hit, on a full scale, fully instrumented practice facility and get instant feedback on the results -- right down to the landing angle of the ball to determine if the entire shot shape is maximized for your swing. It really is the exact same process that is offered to tour pros -- I know because one of the LPGA pros was standing 10 yards away from me getting the same service I was getting. If you do go (and I truly recommend you do), ask for Steve. He is one of the fitters, and is a real pleasure to work with.
Thank you for your feedback! I passed on your note to Steve to let him know how happy you were with the fitting. We couldn't have said it any better - you get the same attention as a touring pro would get. when you go to either Oceanside or Manchester Lane to be fit.
is there a Titleist rep in the North Dallas/Richardson, TX area who would be able to provide me with a demo set of the 710 MBs to try out on the course prior to making a purchase decision?
Kyle Cronkright is one of our best fitters over at Jim McLean's Golf Center in Fort Worth and his number is 817-303-4370. He does have a set of fitting 710 MB's. Give him a call and I'm sure you can work out the details of being fit and trying them out.

Yes, indeed! A Tour Fitting is worth every single penny. I mean, do you think that those guys/gals, on Tour(s), just buy some clubs "off of the shelf"? No way. They go through a very detailed fitting(s).
The new 710 MB's are absolutely amazing! However, in my own personal opinion, if you're shooting in the low 80's, sometimes in the high 70's, I'd stay away from true blades for the time being. That's just my opinion. If I were you, I'd consider taking a look at the AP2's. Those babies are nice! They have a great feel to them and they're more forgiving than a true blade. I mean, even some of the Pros who have been using baldes their entire career(s), switched to the AP2's, because, they're really such an amazing club(s).
No matter what, just make sure it's fit for YOU! Trust me, you won't regret it! I wish you the best of luck!
Alright I'm sold. I live in Mass (North Shore) and would love to do this so I can have a great set for next season. Where's the best place to go get fit for me?
