It is very important that you have a proper golf club fitting before you buy your next set of irons. Many golf professionals are well trained into how to fit a student properly. You need to know what to expect as well as the important topics that should be covered in the golf club fitting session.
When meeting with your club fitter during your golf club fitting session, you need to discuss your skill level. Be honest! Do not feel intimidated or overwhelmed as the club fitter is there to help you. The results will be revealed during your session anyway. In addition, the two of you should discuss what your specific goals are with your golf game. This can help determine which iron head may perform the best for you.
You should arrive with an idea of what type of iron head that you like by how it looks as well as how it feels. If you look down and do not like what you see, you typically will not perform well.
Once you have decided on which clubhead you like during your and the one that will help you achieve you golf goals after your golf club fitting, you need to find the correct shaft flex. This will be where the expertise of the club fitter will greatly help you. Golf shafts typically come in a variety of flexes such as ladies, senior, regular, stiff and extra stiff. Manufacturers will call these different names as sometimes egos get in the way. I have always said that if the club had a pink and green shaft that made the ball go at the hole that club would be in my bag. Due to many different factors, such as swing speed, and how you deliver the golf club to the ball, the golf shaft prescribed may not be what you originally were thinking or have been playing. Make your decision on how the golf ball performs not on what the shaft says.
The shaft material for the set of irons can be made of steel or graphite. Unless you have any injury to your shoulders elbows or wrists, steel is typically the better choice. With recent technology, manufacturers are now able to produce very light steel shafts that are able to improve your game.
During the golf club fitting, the club fitter will also be able to find the proper lie angle for your new set of irons. The lie angle is simply the angle that is created where the shaft and the head meet. As you are looking the face of an iron, the lie angle is the bottom right corner of the club head. Most golf club fittings falls between two degrees flat and two degrees upright. Some companies have color-coded this in an effort to make it easier for the consumers and fitters.
During your golf club fitting, your fitter will also fit you for the proper size for your golf grip. You will also have the options of a total rubber grip, a rubber grip with a half-cord and a rubber grip with a full cord.
With this information, you will be able to get the most out of your golf club fitting.
