For one session they will do all the necessary alteration to all the iron amd driver including studying your swing ? Sound reasonable to me if it so. Per session 2 hrs minimum i presume

Fitting is complementary if you do purchase a set of irons or driver from them.
Tempted to get fitted to the United irons. 
Make sure I detour from Bukit Batok range, if not sure Kanna hook to buy them.

Irons and Driver are separate packages.

My friend recently just did a Driver Fitting (session lasted 2 hours for $70 bucks)

I went to the fitter because i wanted a new set of irons Very Happy So i bought the iron heads & grip and headed to the fitter to get my specifications meted out for the shafts that fit my swing.

Personally, i feel retrofitting (old clubs) isnt all that worth. If you feel ure not playing to the playing to the best of your ability, maybe spend that money and get a coach for a quickfix. (5 hours for $250-$500) Otherwise, ure more than welcome to indulge in jdm for a sweet looking set of irons Very Happy

I went to try fitting at Callaway in Carlsbad... they only offered a specific brand leh Sad .. but the fitting session was not bad... hahahaa albino

if you do not know what u want, don't think any club fitter can help you. all they do is club length , lie angle and spine the shafts. Let you test all the clubs with all the shafts till u think u are better with this or that. 1 month later u start to think again. HAVE HE DONE IT CORRECTLY?

I guess the best piece of advice would be to engage a coach to work on your swing and then head to a fitter for your new clubs.

I can conquer to that......finally got my club customized by Hong of Wizgolf. After playing the game for about 10yrs with set brought off the shelve I score around 90 to 95 per game ( I play once a week) and I thought that is the best I can do. Finally I have my Driver and Iron set fitted by Hong last year and now my game has improve, especially my fairway to green regulation has greatly improve. Thanks to Hong Bro cheers cheers cheers

My current shaft was a little heavy, i could hit good shots but somehow couldn't get good consistency in distances and dispersion, just couldn't hit the centre of the club face enough. 

Went for fitting this morning, got re-shafted (17gm lighter) and some length taken off and got smaller grips. Long story short, felt more confident over the ball, distances and dispersion honed in (not further but much tighter), super happy with the results!

Yes fitting is not for everyone, you need meaningful data to tweak. So if you numbers are super off and inconsistent, even the best fitters would not know what to do. Other than that, i seriously believe getting fit according to your physical capability and characteristics is a great idea!

Chim ah... Could hit good shots but not consistent with dispersion & distance??? So not consistent with good shots? Or good shots include shots short & going left & right?

How many golfers out there are consistently consistent? Club fitting can only help if the golfer has some degree of consistency in his swing.

Huh....

In order to be fitted, you must know what u want out of the fitting. Dun expect to play longer, straighter or even tighter dispersion when u dun have a consistent swing to start with.

For my golfing journey I only went for static fitting (tell the club fitter my ball flight n what i desired out of the fitting ie higher ball flight, more centered hits etc). After the fitting, it took me a few more weeks before getting used to the set.

To have tighter dispersion, u must have a consistent swing, consistent centered hits coupled with the correct shaft flex in order to give u the desired dispersion. That is what I felt on fitting.

Hi,

Did you guys take your existing driver and have the shaft changed? Or did you have the entire club custom made including the head?

Make sure u guys call and arranged for an appointment if you want to get fitted at Wiz Golf, rejected when I went down without making another.  Can't blame them as their shop is filled with too many customers clubs and just too busy. But I will wait for the next slot available. That's what Singaporean always like to do, queue up. Hahaha.

I bought the Driver head and shaft from wizgolf. For my irons, i bought the heads and grips online then proceeded for the fitting session to try out the different shafts

Took a spin in the range with my newly fitted clubs, can't describe, "It just feels right"!
I can visualise a good shot just standing at address, everything feels well balanced, centred strike mostly.  

I play low/mid 80's so i want to see if any significant difference. Can't wait!

If one wants to achieve a score in the 70s, focus more on short game ... Thats the essence of breaking 80 ... But I've not reached that stage yet ... A couple of single handicappers told me that based on their experiences ... Laughing

Yea, my good buddy is a handicap 4 and he told me its all in the head. He said from 24 to 12 is maybe swing and equipment, etc. But single digits its how you control your mind, don't let bad shots effect you, play smart, minimise risk. Woo! :p
