Fantastic experience, I highly recommend
I took my 11 yr old daughter for a fitting on 11/23/19 for an iron and putter fitting. Upon arrival we were greeted by our fitter Michael whos friendliness and candor instantly put us at ease.
As we walked to the fitting/hitting hitting bay I was struck by the selection of clubs and shaft combos. Before we started my daughter was able to warm up during which time Michael and I talked "shop". I could tell right away he knew his stuff was as much a golf addict as myself.
After her warm up, Michael collected a baseline on Soph's current clubs using trackman. He went through what all the numbers meant in a way that we both could easily understand. From there Soph started hitting different irons until Michael could narrow her down into TM p790 and TM M6. After this we went through several shaft option. Which was not just limited to shaft weight and flex, but also length. I was shocked at how her numbers were improving so quick, but Michael still saw room for improvement. By watching her swing and analyzing a couple of her mishits he tweaked the lie angle and instantly her shot dispersion began to shrink. We found the optimal match for her and it only took around 130 swings.
From there we went to the putting green. Again he developed a baseline from her current putter. After going over the data, which he again made very easy to understand, we learned Soph is a straight back and through putter. He gave her some basic understand of ball roll, face balance and toe hang. Also in a very easy to understand fashion that was easily digestable.
After the fitting we ordered a brand new putter and he gave us the specs we needed for irons. We didnt order irons only because we have sizeable credit from TM. That said we felt zero pressure to buy anything. This was a welcomed change from what Ive read and heard about at other fitting places.
I am grateful Michael was clear and patient with my daughter. Not only did she have fun and get new equipment she learned a great deal. I would also mention the other fitter Patrick was a great guy. We talked at length about courses weve played and equipment offered. If you care about your game, even if it's just a little get fit. If you are obsessed make an appointment ASAP.
