Never figured on getting fitted for Callaway Golf Clubs as during my brief three years of golf I have been a Nike guy.  Well I rented clubs at a course in Arizona and they gave me a set of Callaways.  Actually hit the ball pretty good.  I mentioned to a buddy that I would be in San Diego and he said to get fitted at Callaway and he would hook me up.  Hook me up he did and I went to the Callaway Performance Center in Carlsbad.  Arrived in the morning to find the place kind of quiet.  Guys in golf shirts going to work and looking pretty relaxed and casual.  I checked in at the front desk and was asked to wait for my fitter.  There was a display of clubs on the right so I entered through a Big Bertha display and started swinging clubs.  After a few minutes I sat down and then was greeted by my Club Specialist.  He was a young buck who escorted me to the second floor where we entered a large room with a huge screen, lots of clubs and several computer screens.  After some small talk he asked me to pull out my set of Nike clubs and let me take a few swings.  I warmed up a bit and then he turned on the computer to track my shots.  We started with an 8 Iron and then worked up to my driver.  Each swing is recorded and you get instant feedback on the widescreen showing distance, location, speed, loft and a bunch of other things.  After hitting my Nike clubs, he started giving me Callaway clubs and then compared my hits with each club.  He can throw out the "mulligans" and show you where your ball landed with the Callaways vs the Nike.  He then tweaks the club length and angle of the club and begins to design a club for my terrible swing.  We worked on irons, hybrid, fairway woods and then the driver.  The more we got into it, the more he started making adjustments. After about one hour of hitting balls with various clubs he creates an order form with the best clubs for my swing.  He prints it out and sends you on your way.  You can order from Callaway or your local golf shop or pro.  I did not get fitted for a putter as I have a new Scotty Cameron model that I received as a gift.  I love my putter and did not want to change to Callaway at this time.  I got a nice discount for the fitting but the normal cost is $150.  My Club Specialist was great and I really enjoyed the experience.  Should have my new clubs in a week or two but will still keep my Nike set.
