I played Titleist driver, 3wood, rescue Vokey wedges and a Scotty Cameron putter but stubbornly kept my png S56 blade irons.
Last week I had an opportunity to compare their performance on the latest launch monitor I was amazed to learn my ball flight was too low, spin rate was also low and real carry distance was actually 15% less than I thought. I tried the Titleist AP2 712 irons & they outperformed the Pings in every capacity as far as "my swing" was concerned, Club head speed, ball flight, and spin were really close to the recommended parameters. I played with them for the first time yesterday & the improvement in my ball striking was dramatic. I am a 6 handicap player yet had no idea that the S56 irons I loved so much and played the last 3 years were so poorly suited for my game.
I hope anyone reading this post and is not totally sold on accurate club fitting will give it more thought.
