    Karen to be honest, if you were off 2 rather than 3 i think he might have fitted you for a 5iron.

    It's fine, accuracy is the same. Normalisation is a badly explained and named feature in my opinion as it's the same physics simulation whether the operator has pressed the normalise button or not - it doesn't change input conditions which is you and your swing. As long as you compare all the clubs under the same settings you can be as confident as it's possible to be with the results as it's all relative...

    ... Bingo!


    I like putting. (2017 handicap: 11.2...10.0)

    When people ask my handicap I still start off saying "Tw..." and then have to correct myself! Need to get a decent score early in the new season to get back down there!

    when you get down low i think its acceptable to use decimals to extenuate your ability. we almost feel ashamed sometimes that we've got back up a shot. i feel your pain

    Re: Pride vs Custom Fitting

    FD...If its any help.....your question actually caused me to consider whether I (a portly, less flexible, 50 something, single digit player,) would benefit from dropping the 5 iron in favour of a higher lofted hybrid.....and I haven't totally dismissed the notion....my dithering is not so much about "pride" but the fact that I paid for a 5-PW set and one of the clubs would start gathering dust in the corner of my garage and be "wasted".
