Will upgrading from a Camry to a BMW make you a better driver?

That also explains why there are so many crap BMW drivers on the road.

As a former professional I can tell you two things:

1. Proper practice and sound advice from someone who knows what they are speaking about is the best way to improve consistency and lower scores.

2. Fitting can help to a degree, just like lessons and practice. That degree depends on your current skill level and ability to replicate a swing.

At the end of the day golf is a challenging game but it is not impossible to become decent at it. There is no magic remedy that is going to make you good and cure your inconsistencies over night. You might see some improvement initially from a fitting session, lesson, or practices session. You could even see great improvements , but it really depends on the individual case.

I am not here to knock fitting, pump up lessons, or whatever. This is merely a comment from someone who has been around the game for a bit and had a minute to chime in.

For me and my game it has been the combination of sound advice, proper practice, and as improvement and consistency happened in my swing and game, gear that fit properly and complimented what I was trying to achieve.

@aling, certainly club fittings will NOT help you fix any inconsistencies you have currently based on the stats you stated. I don't see how fittings can make you hit 150m consistently all the time when some of your shots only travelled 5m (I assumed you topped it badly). There are also threads that discussed club fittings which I recommend you read through all. Go through all and you will find the right answer. I also suggest you discuss with your coach to determine where you are in your swing before you jump into club fittings.

hitting the ball sweet = good shot?

So if can hit consistent good shots with current clubs (be it tall, short, long hand, short legs etc), then why still need club-fitting?

is it a chicken and egg situation?

here we are talking about consistency.....if there is consistency, the next level is how to improve and play better...so to find what type of equipments actually suits the style and swing and speed better...

Hi Smokey... when I mention hitting it sweet, it just means that you contact the ball well without top, duff, etc. Hitting the ball sweet not necessarily means the ball will go straight and far...

Maybe how bro DRGjr72 put it explains better, its about the ability to replicate and repeat a consistent swing.

For example, Some can hit the ball pretty decent and consistent, but their ball tends to ballon up too high hence loosing distance. In this case, a club fitter will be able to properly assess the swing and club and make the necessary adjustment to bring down the ball flight, improving the distance so on and so forth...

As much as we are living in a digital age these days, life is far from being binary.. Nothing absolute 1 or 0, black/white.. flat yes/no. Truth is always somewhere in between. So to those saying flat NO, I wonder what else in life they are missing. Question

aling, i think you have to be a bit more specific in terms of your description to us on how you hit 150m with what iron? and i assumed you topped the same iron to get to 5m?

like i'm sure a few other bros here would have pointed out, for the general golfer, assuming you are not 1.85m in height, 110kg in weight with a 105mph driver swing speed or above, the general off the rack sets of irons would suffice until you develop your swing to a point tht you are able to replicate it with a certain degree of consistency in such a manner that your club fitter of choice is able to get be a decent judge of you swing / swing speed and abilities...

i like you thought that i could improve my consistency by seeing a club fitter when i started golf but thankfully i met an honest club fitter in DGman who was rather harsh but honest when he told me that as much as he wanted to fit me for the good of his business, he would not do so because what i needed was a coach...

Hi 4dtoto and alvin,

thanks for the clarification. though i may not understand the magic of fitting now, i do feel that fitting will definitely improve the performance of a consistent golfer.

well i do hope i will be able to understand the magic soon!
