Frequently asked questions
What would you like to know?

We offer the finest technology for custom golf club fitting to produce the best possible results.

  • What Is Club Fitting?

    During a club fitting, I measure your swing and match a set of clubs perfectly to that swing. Throughout the process, we hit balls and I measure your swing speed tempo time while taking high-speed photographs. We decide on the best head design and I measure shaft characteristics to arrive at the correct shaft flex profile. We ensure you have the correct length of the club and grip size. A club fitting is very similar to tailoring a suit. It cannot be done online. It typically takes 2-3 hours for irons or woods, and only 1 hour for the putter.

  • Is Club Fitting Only For Good Golfers?

    Many golfers believe that good players exclusively need custom fitting. You know, Touring Pros, Club Champions, and so forth. Not true. In my experience, the worse you play, the more you benefit.

  • Why Are We Brand Agnostic?

    OEM clubs do not provide the best performance. You can test your clubs against the brands I typically order. I have no inventory, so I am not trying to push a product out the door, and I have no agreements that require me to sell a specific number of clubs and shafts per year. I sell the clubs that fit and nothing more.

  • What Is the Fitting Process?

    The process includes hitting your current clubs and using a launch monitor and other technology to track and store data. After evaluating your swing, I select one or two of the clubheads I have and allow you to hit them with several representative shafts. From this data, I use a computer program to select the optimum shaft for the selected clubhead. Additional weight may be added or removed to allow you to have optimum performance.

  • What Is the Cost?

    Each fitting segment costs $150 and takes between 2.5 and 3 hours. Once the fitting is paid for, the clubs cost a little more than a high-quality set of clubs from a big box store. Because of the intense labor required to build a set of custom clubs, there are no cheap clubs from a true custom club fitter. The value is realized once you know that you have the clubs that will last you until you wear them out.

  • Why am I different?

    While golf clubs are not a technological piece of equipment, the materials required to build a custom set of golf clubs are considered high technology. I use computer technology to build clubs. I have several pieces of computer-based equipment including frequency meters, shaft profiling tools, and moment of inertia gauges. In addition, I am certified in club fitting and club building by several different equipment manufacturers including Golfsmith and Golfworks. I am proud to be certified as an associate golf teacher and golf coach including a certification in golf psychology.

    Custom fittings are broken down into three segments. In the segment on woods we fit you for a driver and the fairway woods. In the segment on Irons we not only fit you for irons but also obtain the critical data for wedges and hybrids. The remaining segment is for putters.
