Titleist AP1
Key Feature: A tungsten-nickel box low and behind the face and a Tuned Feel System insert combine for consistent distance, forgiveness and feel across the clubface.

Who It’s For: Players who want forgiveness to coincide with shotmaking and distance control in a forged iron.

Don’t Forget To Get Fit!

This isn’t the first time we’ve mentioned the importance of clubfitting to you. Yet, it seems so many golfers assume that the fitting process is either a tedious one, an expensive one or both. The reality is, clubfitting is much more accessible than you think, and for a few bucks, your set can be completely customized to fit your swing.

A great place to start is to look up the manufacturer of your irons and woods, and check to see if they’re having any demo days in your area. Sometimes they can make tweaks to your equipment from inside the tech van. Another great place to look is at one of the many golf-equipment retailers across the country. Many stores, including Golfsmith and Dick’s Sporting Goods, offer clubfitting services. The process is painless, and usually on the same day, the technician can tweak your equipment while you wait.
