The old Scottish golf professionals knew a thing or two about golf, including making the golf clubs which help start the evolution of club making and repair. Popularity for the game grew, and soon the U.S. came on board as The United States Golf Association (USGA) was established in 1894. By the turn of the century, more than 1000 golf clubs had been formed throughout the USA.
With this emergence of golf clubs came many opportunities for these early golf professionals to bring their club making skills to America. Their knowledge helped design courses as well as teach golf to those who had an interest in learning this great game.
Today’s golf professionals are putting more emphasis on learning the valuable skills of club fitting and club building for good reason. Golfers want clubs that are in harmony with their swing. And as their swing evolves or changes due to numerous factors, club specs must be analyzed to ensure everything matches up.
That’s why today’s club builders and club fitters need to have the knowledge and offer the equipment that can accurately measure golf club specifications and make necessary alterations based on the golfer’s mechanics. One such club builder who takes great pride in club customization is Ben Hogan Golf.
