I personally think everyone should at least know the basics of their swing(swing speed, lie angle adjustments, etc) before they go buy clubs. Swinging the wrong shaft, or non adjusted irons can really hurt your game and keep you from improving. Shooting 94 is the exact time when I think you should be getting involved in custom fitting, because in most cases you've started striking the ball pretty well and can really notice a difference.
I disagree, I have seen a lot of people shoot 94 who really aren't that great ballstrikers. Moreso than good ball strikers who just piss away shots around the green - hence why I said getting fitted isn't that essential at this stage.

I agree though, lots of stats regarding his game are key to making an appropriate call though.

I guess I am just lucky to have never needed adjusted clubs
