Different numbers on fitting day

  1. I recently bought a new set of irons (AP3) and have played them now for two months. The numbers I am getting are nothing like what I saw on the day of the fitting.

    Has anyone else had a problems like this?

    I bought the irons on the basis of the fitting and they were better and evenly spaced more than my other clubs. I subsequently sold my old irons and now regret that as I am not getting anywhere near the numbers I expected.

  2. Strange. What were the circumstances of the fitting? Indoor/outdoor? Mats/turf? Was the launch monitor you used for the fitting the same as you're using now? Were the numbers normalized?

    There are a ton of potential variables for why numbers could be different, but they shouldn't be that drastically different. I would contact the fitter and ask him or her to take a look.

    2 types of fitting days. Too much adrenaline and can't hit 3 clean shots in a row. Or, getting into a grove - might need the occasional wedge or fairway wood shot to break up the grove. A special subclass is getting fit indoors on a mat. Launch is better and fat/thin hits get unrealistic results. I always get fit outdoors, but no matter how the fitting goes, I still need to get comfortable with the new set. If there was a significant weight change in the shaft, I've had to deal with multiple sh$#*s.

    Trying to get a little better understanding about your comment. How many rounds of golf in those two months? Do you play every day or once a week? Sometimes it takes a while to groove new irons in a routine fashion, especially if you are coming from a set that were quite a bit different. You also said the clubs were evenly spaced and usually the fittings are just with an adjustable 7 iron so it sounds like you may have had a few early rounds where they performed as expected but tapered off over time? Sorry if my assumptions are wrong, I am just trying to figure it out based on your comments. Hopefully it just an adjustment period and you soon get comfortable and start to groove them nicely.

    I have to assume the numbers you're speaking of would be distance. As others have mentioned a ton of variables exist that could explain your situation. Knowing the actual "numbers" you're referring to could be helpful. Without that, my first thought would be to have loft checked on the set.
  6. What about the golf ball used at the fitting? Same as yours or different?
