I had my first experience with a Titleist fitting professional last December. The club that was hosting the fitting is a reputable course in the area. My concern after speaking with multiple other club pros and industry vets is that there may have been an inaccurate adjustment made to the lie angle on the irons (+2*) that I got custom fit.
After doing some research it seems that it would be extremely difficult to truly tell exactly how much to adjust a lie to unless i was hitting off a lie board or hitting in front of a launch monitor. There was not a lie board or launch monitor, just a fitting professional that seemed to be trying to fix the flight path of the ball. Since then, i have hit in front of multiple launch monitors and it seems that my custom irons may have been over adjusted. I'm concerned now that i am trying to work on my swing with a set of irons that will need to be re-adjusted after doing a fitting.
A couple questions i would like feedback on...
Can a lie adjustment be done without a lie board?
Should the fitting professional make a distinction between an improper swing vs arbitrary iron adjustments?
