Great vid Mark. Because I’m only 5’6″ and have just used standard clubs,
i’ve always caught the club at the heel, like the upright club in your vid,
and just didn’t know it. I just got fitted for the first time by a pro.
Ordered TM Burner 2.0 with reg flex shafts, 3.5* flat, 0.5 inch shorter
shafts….Should be here in 10 days, hopefully they will feel better and
will improve my game.

matti2112 says:

Hi mark, great vid as usual. I have an 80ish mph swing. I would like more
height on my irons and especially on my wedges. Would I get better results
from a reg shaft in my wedges as opposed to the wedge flex currently in
them?

Great videos mate! Im so bummed out right now, brother sold me he’s newly
purchased TaylorMade Burner Superlaunch last summer for right about 110euro
so i couldnt say no =) (the still go for about 565euro in sweden). Problem
is that their flex is regular and I’ve got a feeling that im a person that
wouldnt go better with stiff ;/ When do you guys think that customfitting
is worth it handicap-wise and on what sort of price-range clubs? Im only at
26 at about now, started last summer for real.

Thank You!

What’s the best way to evaluate Driver length and lie? They don’t hit the
ground and a lot of driver swings are more about inconsistency in the swing
and contact than the lie. Please recommend a way to evaluate on the range
to give the pro an idea of tendencies that will help them.

Very nice video Thanks for posting it

Kerran Franks says:

The big question is finding a place/person to fit them correct. I have been
to some retailers that are useless and only interested in selling clubs (in
New Zealand) trusting the fitter is the big thing.

Great help thanks for the help!!

kiwilibre says:

Brilliant video. Clear explanation. Cheers !

crs1523 says:

I went to the Taylormade fitting lab, and got custom fitted. I enjoyed the
experience. It helped me realize how I was coming into the ball. The new
custom clubs I got from it have really helped narrow my dispersion. I would
recommend custom fitting to everyone.

thenofxlagwagon says:

it depends where you go, but lie bending will typically cost between $10-20
per club. most golf shops will do this. @MrMbentley73

BransonBrennan says:

I think you’ve convinced me!

barronredneck says:

I’ve never had custem clubs and lost intrest in the sport because my drvies
have always cork screwed to the left now you have clarified that, thanks.

prorobo says:

Great tips. I got fitted at Golf Galaxy before I bought my first set of
irons and lucky enough the standard lie was perfect for me. I’m looking to
get a new set this season and will get fit again just to be sure.

Scott Cooper says:

Hi Mark, Your app has sorted me right out latley in understanding more
about the game. Im 6’4 and have recently had my clubs made an inch longer
with bigger grips, This has helped me stand up straighter and hold the club
better, the result has mainly been alot more distance out of my irons.

Jose Lopez says:

I use standard length clubs with 1 degree flat lie angle. I’m 12 years old
and five feet one, and I usually hit my irons no more than 15 yards off
line.

t88boost says:

wat do u normally shoot when u play 18?

Anthrax2404 says:

Is it worth getting a fitting if you’re new to the game or should I master
the basics first?

mcgroogtube says:

thanks for this to clear up how the upright and flat affects shots, im 6
foot 2 and have standard length and lie im pretty sure, when i got fit like
a week ago i was hitting off the toe more so he put my specs to 2 degrees
upright and half inch longer, and also wedges he made half inch longer and
reg lie because he said the length would make the lie flat. Is this
sounding proper?

cooldrink88 says:

Do you have an opinion about Trackman vs Flightscope? Have you tried them
booth, and do you think one of the system is better? Regards!

Frithlogics says:

Seems that custom fitting is the only way to go!

rabbitmanish says:

@MentaLAquaa keep goin with the golf. i strted about 4 weeks ago and can
hit it 200 yards.

Mike Bentley says:

what if you have half decent clubs already can they custom fit them for me?
cost?

5150markg says:

Was custom fit for irons using Mizuno DNA at an AG store hitting into a net
with a launch monitor and then had a Driver fitting at The Belfry using
Ping’s nFlight software/launch monitor into a full range – ended up with
R11. Obviously full range it better but the Mizuno DNA is very good too

thefonz147 says:

hi mark great videos! can you explain how NOT getting fitted for clubs, but
adjusting one’s setup to suit the clubs can affect ones swing and
ballflight? (ie. standing taller to suit a club that’s too upright, or
bending over more to suit a club that’s flatter). i recently just got
fitted for clubs (jpx800, 2deg flat) using standard clubs i found that my
shoulder plane was too flat in comparison with my club plane being too
upright. i hope this makes sense?

Mike Bentley says:

cheers mate!

Chris Durkovic says:

This is for Mark or any professional like him. I am an active duty soldier
stationed in South Korea and I really want to get fitted. I own a stock
2012 Taylormade RBZ club and iron set. Do you know of any Taylormade
fitting center or any English speaking fitting center I can go to? Love the
videos and the apps. Mark, you have helped lower me handicap and improve my
game. Thanks!!

seve17golf says:

i got custom fitted for my taylormade r9 tps best thing i ever did got fit
to 2 degrees flat. by the way love the videos

chipper701 says:

hi mark i understand club flex is important to swing speed in club fitting
but i cant understand the loft lie . That test was conducted on a level
board, a golf course isn,t level i.e uphill lie downhill lie surely an
standard length club would suit most average height players because to me
you would have to improvise just the same as the standard club with
different golf course lies. but then again i am new to this game thanks.

Darris Turbyfill says:

@SoJo414 That does not make sense… I am 5’7″ with a 28-1/2″ inseam…
When going through the Ping measuring system my numbers show either a
standard length club or one that is 1/4″ shorter with a standard lie…
Personally, it’s all about hitting the ball in the sweet spot on the club
face… With enough practice you can hit a club that is too long or too
short for your measurements even with the incorrect lie… It is just much
easier to hit it good with a correct fitting…

jonyim94 says:

I went for a fitting for my Titleist AP2 712 irons back in
September/October 2011. Got my clubs around Christmas 2011. Before I was
playing stock Callaway X18 irons. Big difference between the custom-fitted
clubs and the stock clubs. You feel more confident knowing you got the
right equipment and can be more aggressive into attacking more flags. Now
I’m getting more birdie chances with my AP2’s than I ever did with my X18
irons.

Eddie O'Donnell says:

im 6ft4 and i keep slicing borrowed clubs. is this because the clubs are
too small and so instead of hitting the ground with the inside of the club,
i hit with the outside?

david robson says:

I never buy any clubs without custom fitting. My measurements are sent away
so the clubs can be made to suit my game. Spend the money and you will play
better golf. Don’t budget yourself on things that make a difference. My
cubs cost me 90-100 pound more than a set of the rack because I have them
custom fitted.

StarKiller6209 says:
