Had a great fitting with Chris Courtneidge at Portsmouth golf centre yesterday evening.
We tried the full range and settled on T200’s as they gave the best all round data: tightest dispersion, good distance, good carry, highest spin rate and highest flight.
For the last 11 years I’ve used the original AP2’s for which I was fitted at St Ives. Last year, tempted by the shiny 718 AP2’s I had a fitting Mr. C at Silvermere. At the time I had a bit of a sore back and wasn’t hitting the ball well. In hindsight I should have cancelled the fitting but the lure of the shiny stuff was too much! Chris fitted me for AP2’s with a 1/2” longer shaft, my existing irons are 1” longer which was confirmed by Chris at the fitting yesterday. I bought the 718’s but have never been very comfortable with them and have recently gone back to my original clubs to regain confidence.
So my advice to you fine folk is two-fold:
1. Don’t go to fittings if you are carrying an injury it could prove to be expensive (my fault not Titleist’s)
2. Make use of the TT fittings and get re-checked at regular intervals
My biggest challenge now is explaining to Mrs Enfield that I “need” new irons. Wish me luck!
