PostSubject: Can I re-fit my fitted club   Fri Apr 28, 2017 2:54 pm

Hi Fellow Golfers,

Before i start, some background about myself. I'm a lefty golfer, using a set of fitted Ping I20 irons and G20 driver since 2013. Started playing golf about 9 years ago but only being truly active for the last 3 years. My current handicap is in the high 20s.


Would like to seek the expert opinion and views in the forum on the following,


1) Can I bring my fitted ping clubs to other club fitters to re-customize based on my current swings. Cause I think my current swing has slightly evolve and I don't want to spent too much on my clubs. I rather spent the money on additional lesson.

2) For hybrid clubs, is customization still require? The fitter i went to, sold me 2 hybrids G30 (22 & 17) and tell me it's not require. Honestly I felt that was a quite strange.

3) Is it worth to have additional wedges (56, 60, etc...) customize beside a pitching wedge. Or it doesn't really matter.

Thanks.

1. Yes, of coz you can bring your club to other fitter.
2. Choose the right shaft are more important, doesn't matter about the club head.
3. Wedge don't really need to customize, it's quite standard. Whatever loft is depend on what u need.

Just my 2 cents.

Thanks for the reply bro. Very Happy

Btw I dun really get your reply for question 2.

My fitter simply sold me 2 off the shelf hybrids and told me customization is not required. The club head and shaft are all stock.

Thats quite strange.

A good and proper fitter would be looking at your entire set.

Bring your set to a proper certified club fitter.

Wedges are important to customise as the bounce, lie and grind plays an important part on how you score / recover around the greens.

Cheers

I'm using G25 and G30 ping. Hybrids are not like iron, the lie angle is fixed, doesn't need customization. But the shaft can be changed.

I was reading about the issue on hybrids with regard to lie angle.

Should/can the lie angle of hybrid be adjusted* just like any other irons, woods (fairway and driver)? I have all along assume that they can be adjusted without giving much thought about it. The reason is, using a standard lie, would a very short player be hitting with a "strike mark" at the sole of the club more on the heel and  would a very tall player be hitting with a "strike marl" more on the toe?

If a club fitter will to mention that there is no need to adjust the lie angle, I have to assume that the fitter has tested that the "strike mark" of the player is somewhere in the middle of the sole of the club. 

From another point of view, if the lie angle of hybrid is fixed, than would it also apply to fairway woods and driver**? Than what I have assume all along needs to be re-educated.

*: assuming that there is enough length in the hosel for adjustment. 
**: assuming that these clubs does not come with lie or loft adjustment which is in-built to the set.

First of all. Thanks for the all the kind reply and advice.

Stickman,

That's what I think as well. Whenever I use the the 17 degrees loft hybrid, I felt uncomfortable. In addition, my fitter has not check the hybrid against my test mark before selling me the club. In any case, I won't be getting back to my fitter in the meantime before getting a second opinion.
