JAKE'S CUSTOM FIT PHILOSOPHY
Good custom fitting is a marriage of science and art.
It requires a meticulous person who knows what works, is willing to put in the time and effort, and can give the customer critical feedback. The goal is to improve accuracy, balance, consistency, distance, efficiency, and feel.
Good fitting is not about hitting a 350-yard drive once a round. It is about consistently maximizing your distance and accuracy.
