Custom Club Fitting

Having clubs that are specifically fit to your unique, individual swing will help you hit the ball farther, straighter and more consistently.

The wrong shaft length of flex may cause lack of distance, hooks or slices. Playing with the wrong lie will have an effect on the way you hold the club and may cause pulls or pushes. The grip size can affect the way you hold the club and may cause hooks or slices or too much tension in your hands

The wrong putter can wreak havoc on your scores and cause unnecessary frustration.

If you have, at minimum, a somewhat repeatable swing, you can be custom fit for your clubs and putter. Many times people think they have to be a “good” player to deserve custom fit clubs. Actually, it’s the opposite – Don’t wait to be “good” because you may never get there without custom fit clubs.

During a custom fitting, Justin will also be able to help you determine a logical set make-up, supported by data. No more arbitrarily deciding whether or not you need a 3-iron or what hybrid and wood lofts you should have. We take the guess-work out of it.

Schedule your fitting today and see what YOU have been missing out on.
