I was thinking about finally getting my clubs fitted. I am a tad short 5'6"-5'7" and have never had my clubs altered. They tend to sit on the heal when I address the ball and if the ball is below my feet I generally pretty screwed.

Questions are:

1. Is it worth it? how much of a difference in your scores did it make?

2. How much can I expect to pay? I really only need 8 irons adjusted

Thanks guys

LOL I did use a putter from a kids set for a while. It was a good putter but the weight wasnt heavy enough so I ditched it eventually.

in the summer generally once or twice a month and hit the rang once a week or so.

My thing is the toe of the clus generally is in the air when i address the ball. The heel of the club is basically the only thing touching the ground so I think it could make a decent difference even if it was just psychological.

Honestly I would say it's not worth it..I had it done to a set of mine years ago and didn't notice a difference between them and any set I've had since then.

Probably says more about your game than club fitting, stud.  Grin

It's fairly inexpensive and consists of cutting down the shaft or lengthening using a plug. New clubs can come from the supplier with longer shafts as well. Get it done as you're probably due for new grips anyway. Not a huge game changer but will help you make consistent shots.

That is one thing I do every year...get my grips re-done.

You are considering a static measurement here.  Since everyone will bend the shaft to a certain degree, you need to be fitted for lie angle by actually hitting balls.

And yes, it can make an incredible difference in your game.
