Every PGA Tour player has their golf clubs fit. Why not you?

“My father was ardent about getting golf clubs that fit. He believed that if you had a club that was improperly fitted, you would make adaptations in the golf swing and he didn’t want me to have to fight another variable. It’s the simplest variable there is. Have the club fit you properly.”

PGA Professional Chad Johansen – 2012 Ping Golf Fitter of the Year


Over the last 10 years, golf equipment has experienced a great deal of change. The heads are bigger, the faces are thinner, and the shafts are lighter. There are more choices than ever in what clubs to buy and where to buy them. Thanks to the Internet, information about golf clubs is easily accessible. The manufacturers of golf clubs are making changes based on the latest technology and it can be difficult and confusing to keep up with the latest trends. One thing is for certain and that is the advances in today’s golf club technology make a big difference in your performance on the course. The larger sweet spots, higher MOI values, geometric shapes, and multi-material offerings all give you an edge to improve your score.

Every golfer needs to determine what club technology will best suit his or her game and how to fit that club technology with the golfer’s body and swing. A professionally trained eye will help fit the club to the player’s body and swing. Golf clubs purchased “off the rack” could mean there are iron sets, drivers, and woods in your bag that are causing your golf game more harm than good. To take advantage of the latest in golf club technology, it is very important to match your body and swing with the proper clubs.

That’s where I can help. As a Class A member of the PGA, with a background in sales and fitting, I can help you get that proper fit you need to take your game to the next level. I can help you filter through the equipment information about wood shafts and iron sets to match current golf club technology with your body and swing.
Beginning this year, all of my lessons will include a free golf club analysis, a ten minute iron, wood, and wedge fit. You might be playing with equipment that is not the best fit for your game and are puzzled by some inconsistencies. For example, have you noticed that you hit your pitching wedge 100 yards but your sand wedge only 65 yards? Do you feel the club twisting at impact? A careful look at your wedge make-up may reveal some big gaps. A small adjustment in your iron’s lie angle could improve your accuracy dramatically. A little extra length in your shafts could improve your face contact ten-fold.

Getting a proper fit today means more than a piece of lie angle tape. Every club category in the bag needs to be fit to ensure the best possible result. With great pricing and selection in the pro shop, buying properly fit clubs has never been easier.

Every PGA Tour player has their clubs fit. Why not you?

"My daughters have been attending the Chad Johansen junior golf camps for 4 years. They run a very organized program! We really love the golf swing videos they send with advice on how they can improve. The technology they use is absolutely fantastic. It's fun showing all of my friends out of state my daughters golf swings. I would highly recommend the Chad Johansen Junior Golf Camps to anyone who has kids. I guarantee they have a blast!"
Patti McCumber
"My boys, Jonathan and Ryan, have been attending Chad Johansen junior golf clinics since we moved to the Chicago area a year ago. Chad and his team do a great job teaching the fundamentals of golf in a manner that the kids love. The boys love to play and practice with other kids that share the same interest. Our boys have developed a love of the game of golf and are excited to play and practice whenever they can. I credit Chad's golf camps. They learn the mechanics of the golf swing, how to chip and putt, proper golf etiquette and the importance of sportsmanship in the game. I especially like the on-line personalized instructional videos that each student receives. Our boys will continue to participate in these camps and I would certainly recommend them to others."
Jim Waugh
"Thank you for running such a great and well-organized Junior Camp. The drills and instruction were presented in a fun and useful way the kids could benefit from and enjoy. You and your staff took the time to help the kids individually so they knew exactly what they needed to work on. My boys really loved the camp and are already asking to do it again! I have been recommending it to all my friends!"
Gina Conner
"With Chad's instruction I started hitting the ball further, and straighter. His putting lessons helped me lower my scores immediately. Last year, I improved my scoring average by 19% and shot my lowest round ever (75). Now, whenever my game starts to 'drift,' I just schedule some 'Chad time' and in no time, I'm back in the groove. "
- John SteinerBlackberry Oaks Senior League Player
"We sent our eleven year old son to Chad Johansen for his first set of golf lessons. Chad is a very knowledgeable, relaxed teacher for children at all skill levels. Each lesson started promptly, was planned out, and offered challenging drills with appropriate encouragement and positive reinforcement techniques. Our son played the rest of the summer with more confidence and he enjoyed playing golf."
- Geoff and Tammy SmockYorkville, IL
"Chad has really helped me develop my game ever since I went to him early last year. The personal lessons and the Player Development Camp were an integral part of my success last year in making it to State. At the camp I really advanced my game because Chad analyzed my swing and putting stroke, and made the necessary changes. I took 3-4 putts off a round at least! When working with Chad, he communicates very well and uses things that I can understand. Along with being very knowledgeable of the game, Chad is a great person you can rely on to advance your game."
- Josh GorzneyPlano High School
"Without the help of the putting studio and the full swing technology from Chad Johansen my game would not be where it is today. This help has allowed me to take my game to the next level and play college golf."
- Rodney ClaytonMonmouth College
"Wow! Not only was I never a good putter, I never understood what a proper putting stroke entailed, or how a properly fitted putter could affect my setup and putting stroke. The Blackberry Oaks putting studio answered these questions and more. It gave me the ability to put myself in contention more often and win golf tournaments, due to better putting. Thank you Blackberry Oaks putting studio and Chad Johansen!"
- Rich Dukelow2006 & 2007 Illinois PGA Assistant Player of the Year
"The putting studio was without a doubt the best investment I've made in my game. Want to improve your score? The putting studio is the answer"
