For beginners it's close your eyes and swing hard maybe you'll hit it lol

Fitting? My friend hits a Haig 3 iron as far as my 3 wood if we both flush it.

I play 52 times a year, he plays 4.

I get it if you got the bug and trying to score but a beginner can't buy game it has to be paid in effort.

Am I wrong?

Never mind I just got Ben Hogan Irons love them get fitted...

Amen to "a beginner can't buy game it has to be paid in effort" !

The late Leon Pounders, RIP, fitted me to my FirstFlights in just two minutes in 1990. He told us young guns to stay away from that new stuff, and play the real clubs(which he easily had over 500 sets of blades in his shed). Word of mouth brought me to this retired pro to buy my first real used set.
He made me "stand tall and stop slouchin" and hang my arms at my sides. He took the 5 iron from 3 different sets, quickly put the handle of each to my left hand to grip, while the clubhead would touch the ground. He was making sure that my fingers and thumb, were only on the grip(not touching the shaft) but as close as possible to where the grip and shaft transition begins. I ended up buying a registered set of FX-101's from him for 40 bucks(I still play them today).

Most beginner's would do well to learn with a stiff set of blades, at a length close to what the charts say, with a couple cans of of foot spray, and a patient mentor or guru with a smart phone camera. After about 300-500 ball strikes, at 75% power, that beginner would absolutely know what each type of mi sh-t is, versus a pure ball strike(by feel, sound and trajectory). They could then, once they demonstrate they can identify their own mi sh-t s and pure strikes, go try it on the course. Blades are the real game improvement clubs that beginner's should be fitted to first, their golf "kung fu" will benefit more from them, faster.

Cheers

Stiff blades for beginners? Your cruel! Do you think anyone will be using a 300cc permission driver and a tour balata 100 in the World Long Drive Finals tonight on Golf Channel?

Love the foot spray idea, using video on the range, and mostly your fitting story.

It's just fun!

Agreed, it's way more fun than not.

Hey, thanks for the tip...those same beginner's also need to be quick fitted to a persimmon driver, use it to achieve the same demonstration level for themselves and claim another notch of effort in their "kung fu" belt. ;-)

Cheers

Well I still use my Black Ping Eye 2 clubs. They were "fitted" for me and you're right muscle memory does help a golfer. The more you hit the more your body will remember what does and does not work.
