Club Champion Fitting Today
I know there has been a lot of discussion RE: Club Champion here so figured I would offer my own experience to the group. I went for my iron fitting today. Prior to today, I had never been fit for clubs and also had never hit on a Trackman before so I had no clue what any of my stats looked like so I went in with an open mind. Overall, it was a cool experience. It started with a brief consultation about my game and what I was looking to get out of the fitting. Going in, I was 50/50 on whether I wanted to buy with them or not. There was never pressure to actually purchase.
I hit my current 6i to get a baseline and then we started to drill down on shafts and then moved on to heads after that. I went in as pretty much a "Taylormade guy" but was agnostic to what the end product was. I ended up with the best results from the Callaway Mavrik w/ Nippon Modus Tour 120 shafts, 4-PW, GW. The numbers were an obvious difference over everything else I hit. With the 6i, smash factor was consistently 1.45-1.49 with carry distance 189-199 with a spin rate ~1500 less than my current clubs and dispersion was by far the best. I did not expect to leave with Callaway irons but the numbers do not lie.
In the end, they offered financing with 0% interest for 18 months so it was a no-brainer for me to go ahead and make the purchase. I tacked on 2 Taylormade Milled Grind 2.0 wedges and left out of the door for ~$2700 including the $150 fitting charge. I ended up getting the shafts pured, I know there is also a lot of debate about that as well. I did talk to the fitter for a bit about it and his opinion and he really didn't push it and made it a point that we could lower the price $300 by removing that option.
In summary, it was a positive experience and it was cool to be able to try out so many different shaft and head combinations. The end price is a little high but I knew that going in so it really wasn't a sticker shock situation and the 0% financing helped ease that a bit, in my opinion.
