Custom Clubfitting by Henry—Griffitts

henry-griffittsMy commitment to my students is simple. I provide a detailed and personal look into your swing and game in order to help you improve on specific areas needing assistance.

A major part of improvement is proper equipment evaluation. “Equipment Affects Motion. ” Anyone can be taught to swing a golf club, properly finishing in balance. The tool in your hand can greatly determine how well and how consistently you are able to do that.

We all understand why highly skilled professional tour players have fitted equipment. Does it not make sense that inexperienced amateurs could greatly improve and actually enjoy the game if their equipment allows them to realize their fullest potential ? Because I want to help you realize your golfing goals, I must check the fit of the equipment you bring to your lesson. Once that has been done, together we can form a lesson plan customized to your individual needs.
