I want to encourage everyone to see a good "certified" club fitter.
I recently went to see a Titleist Certified Club fitter that I found on the Titelist website. I first went to him in November 2012 and told him I wanted to be fitted for AP2 or CB. He took some measurements and then watched me swing both clubs. He asked if I was open to looking a something else. I told him I was set on the either the AP2 and CB. He didn't argue and gave me a recommended shaft type, length, and grip size for both clubs. I later ordered the AP2 and received them in late December.
After playing with them for 3 1/2 months I finally accepted the fact that my swing and 10 handicap didn't get the most out of these clubs and my game was getting worse. I called him and told him I was not satisfied. His response was to come back to see him at no charge. I did and I admitted to him that I steered him and didn't let him do a full analysis.
He suggested we start from scratch. We did and after 3 hours with multiple clubs, shafts, etc. in a studio with monitors and then out to the range; the recommendation came back to Titilest - but this time it was AP1 irons. I ordered them and have played 3 rounds with them. OUTSTANDING results!
The reason for this email is to encourage others to see a certified fitter in a fitting studio (not a big box store) even if you have to drive a long way (I had to go 1 1/2 hours). Be open to what they say, trust their recommendations & buy from them. These guys are really professionals at what they do. They will charge you the retail price and maybe won't be able to give you incentives like trade-ins or other freebies. But, their service during and after the sale is worth it. And, the feeling of a well struck shot will last a lot longer than a free glove or trade in for an old set of clubs.
By the way, if you want to see a fitter and are near Charlotte, NC - see Eerik Kaupinen at Carmel Country Club!
Amen. Being left-handed is it's own challenge. The Advanced Center at Cherokee in Madison really improved my iron game from the G10 and Cobra SZ irons I had used from off the rack. Happened to AP1s as well.
