Why do you use Titleist?

Once you purchase off the rack, the only thing you can do it adjust loft and lie. You lose out on all the available standard and custom shafts (a significant number which are no up charge). My #1 reason to use Titleist is the company does not sell by the set but by the club. You can mix/match all clubs/hybrids/fairway and the price per club does not change. You don’t have to order a 3-PW set and then try to sell the 3I to add in a hybrid. That’s the Titleist advantage. If your store discourages this, consider the value of getting fit correctly at a pro shop and then just selling your other OEM clubs to online used club sites. You might even find a pro shop less expensive than a retailer.

Just switched to a new set of clubs but cannot ripe the benefit of the clubs yet. Just wonder for the folks out here how long did it take you to be really effective and good with your new set of clubs 1 round, 2 rounds, 3, etc…


I put a new set of irons in play mid-season and I play nearly everyday and it took me a couple of months to really get use to them. I doubt your going to adjust in just a couple of rounds.


I round—-I’ve got so many different brands of clubs the switch isn’t too difficult
I be a true CLUB HO


I would say a couple of practice rounds with the range finder to dial the yardages, then a couple more to work out how much draw or fade the different face angles can give, so probably a month, but for me in Dublin this a great time to change as "real" golf doesn’t start up again until March.


I think he meant to switch from a set you know to one you don’t – I can switch between my own sets fairly seemlessly – now that I know them all.


LOL on club ho’s. One of my regular 4-some guys purchased 3 lob wedges in June of last year…every week he brought a differnt one….he then showed up in July with a 50 degree persimon hybred!!! LOL a freakin chipping wood!!! We were damn near in tears. it didn’t help him.


I think it depends on how different the new clubs are from your old ones.
I switched from Mizuno MP-32 to MP-52 last year. There wasn’t a huge difference and I was used to the 52’s in about a week or two.
I think the time to adjust would be longer if you were switching from something like an oversized game improvement iron to a thinner muscle back.
