Great service from Andie. Technical problems corrupted the data, wasting my 3 hour session
I had a Full bag fitting in your Needham MA facility March 5. Andie was my fitting specialist. She was very knowledgeable, helpful and easy to work with.
As I was hitting my irons I noticed my club face was 6- 8° open every shot hitting big slices. That is not my normal shot. Andie suggested we continue because that was not one of the key parameters for shaft selection. After testing a half dozen shafts, I realized that my club face was open because the ball was sitting in a well-worn depression in the mat. On every swing my toe would catch the inside of the depression as it descended to the ball opening the club face. Once I realized this we moved the ball to the longer grass portion of the mat where it is flat and near the holes for tees. Instantly my club face was Square To the path. I selected a shaft that I tested on this part of the map. After the session I realized that it was not a fair comparison because the open club face would add dynamic loft and reduce smash factor on the earlier shafts I tested.
The second and even more frustrating situation was that the TrackMan did not pick up most of my swings with driver. The staff in the shop said this was a common issue with those TrackMans. And result is we did not have enough data to make any decisions on drivers. We also did not have enough time to run through three words and hybrids.
The bottom line is I’m going to have to go back and do the session over. I will bring a newer version Trackman myself to be sure we get good data on drivers.
Please replace or rotate your matts and update your trackmans so your fitting staff can do their jobs.
