How to contact me.

If you are local or visiting the Silicon Valley area of California, I do custom club fitting for men, women, and children, both right and left handed.

Who am I?”

I have been playing for 50 years. My clubs illustrate what I discuss on this site: my driver and fairway wood heads and shafts are more than 10 years old. However, they were fitted to me (by me) and assembled within the last year. All the parts were unused. My iron heads are more than 20 years old. The iron shafts are new Aerotech Steelfiber – a shaft model that hasn’t changed in more than 10 years – shafts that are used on the PGA Tours.

I shoot around par on my good days. Having a set that fits you well is WAY more important than having the newest model. For example, my fairway woods are low profile which makes hitting them very easy. They are a brand which has been out of business for a long time. My driver head is from a different company, also out of business for a long time. I can hit many par 5s in two – up to about 525 yards max – not bad for a 65 year old.
