Over the years I’ve tested many, many brands of golf clubs. From the Nationally Advertised brands you see advertised on TV and in Golf Magazines to nearly every viable custom component brand on the market. Using a performance based fitting system allows the product to speak for itself while testing. By using my Conex connected system I am able to test various heads on various shafts and compare the results to get you the best fitting club possible. The use of the Flightscope allows me to measure each test club for performance values and thus narrow the selection process to the very best performing head and shaft combination for each golfer tested. Over the years I’ve been able to eliminate some brands simply because I’ve never seen results from their heads that outperform other heads. The brands I am left with are the heads that continue year after year to outperform others and continue to test better than other brands. One brand that continues to stand out is Alpha Golf. Every golfer doesn’t test best with the same head. Head designs make a difference be it because of superior design, different MOI of the head or simply because of the way the head looks to the golfer. Some companies just never tested best, ever. So those companies were eliminated from me testing system over time. What is left standing are the heads and companies that did win and win often. Not always with the same head, but with several of their designs.
