Manchester Lane Fitting in August

Rick F

I am so pumped for my fitting at the end of the summer and to hopefully get my golf game back on track. I decided to take the rest of the season off and work on my swing with my instructor and my physical well being in preparation for the fitting. I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia almost 2 years ago and my game has really suffered especially my club head speed and distance.

A professional fitting, outside on Trackman in real conditions with ProV1's is the way to go I think. I want to know how to properly gap my bag such as do I carry 3 hybrids and start my iron set at the 6 iron or do I carry 4 wedges instead (I really want to see which grind works best for me)...you get the idea!

I need to check my ego at the gate and let a Professional tell me what I need instead of what I think I need which has been my biggest problem!

If anyone has been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and still plays golf, let me know if you have any tips/suggestions on how to deal with it.

    A great place for that advice is Manchester Lane. I only suffer from age, but both Manchester and Oceanside have been extremely responsive to my speed and worked to fit me and not someone with a driver head speed of 100 mph. So I have driver at 13.5, 5W, 7W, H1 at 23, H2 at 26, 6-PW AP1 with 3 more wedges. No equipment will get me to 250+ yards on a drive, but my set is gapped well for my game. Best of luck with managing your condition.

    Hey Rick F, I am heading there this upcoming Thursday for a tee to green fitting at 9am. I am really pumped up to go there and get fitted like the pros do! Now I just hope the weather cooperates!

    Rick F. Yesterday I had a fitting at the Manchester Lane Facility. All I have to say is wow! It was like being a kid in a candy store! My fitter Chris O'Rourke was awesome. I cannot say enough nice things about the guy. He got me dialed in real nice! I highly recommend doing this if you can, you will not regret it at all! Also listen to them, they know what they are talking about. First time I have ever been fitted like a pro and needless to say my current clubs are to long and to upright! I am 6'3" and was told (by a box store) that I needed an +1/2 to 1" in my irons and wedges. Guess what, they were wrong! Get ready to hit a lot of golf balls!

    What was the damage? Those shafts must have had quite the upgrade charge?
