“Frank does a great job fitting you for what you need and not pushing you to over spend. I have been there twice now, once for irons and another for woods/hybrids and he does not rush the fitting and spends as much time as possible. The technology he uses for the fitting is the best I have seen at any fitting location. He is … Continue reading »

Hi Frank,

“Played today and drove the ball like I use to 10 years ago!  The 39g Grand Bassara shaft / M1 combo is awesome. I’m loving the game again! Thanks for your help as I wouldn’t be in this position without you!”

“Golf is one of those sports where if you want to advance your game, the right clubs can make all the difference. Being a low handicap player, my clubs are something I rely on to perform each and every swing. Therefore, the days of buying clubs off the shelf without knowing any of my statistics is over and I wanted to find the best … Continue reading »

Hi Frank,

“Just absolutely loving my PXG Irons & Wedges you built for me!  I wanted to hold off purposely in writing this review until I got a solid 2 months of play with them.  They’re everything you said that they would be and more!  Easily 2 clubs longer than my previous set and a feel like I’ve never experienced before.

Aside from the performance and … Continue reading »

Frank is no nonsense, friendly, honest, and competent – one would say he is a perfectionist. He … Continue reading »

“During the spring, I went to Frank to get fitted for my driver.  He fitted my old driver against a number of newer ones, trying my original shaft, stock new shafts, lighter shafts, and shorter shafts.  The fitting was very thorough but throughout the results were easily understandable. Ended up with an M1 driver, and M2 5 wood, with shortened, lightweight shafts.  Consistency of … Continue reading »

A month ago or so I received my custom fitted TaylorMade M2 irons. I’m a tall fellow so my sticks are 2 1/2″ longer and 5 degrees more upright. I am now hitting my irons 20+ yards longer and the ball flies true. I was using a shorter man’s clubs for 25 years….

I wanted to drop you a quick note to say how much I thoroughly enjoyed my fitting experience a week ago.
