Miles of Golf is known for club fitting for many golfers in Michigan and Ohio. Here are some facts that MOG says about fittings.

Cluboratory Fittings-

The normal Cluboratory Fittings are designed to help golfers of all levels make good decisions on purchasing golf equipment and assuring that the clubs will appropriately fit the player. To accomplish this a player will go through a two-step process of testing clubs and then being fit for clubs.

The Testing Process. During the testing, the player determines the model of club that looks, feels, performs best and also meets the player’s price requirements. The testing involves hitting shots with different clubs and comparing the results. Critical to making a good evaluation of clubs is seeing the full flight of the ball. During the testing, a qualified club-fitter will assist you.

The Club-Fitting Process.
This involves precisely fitting the club model the player selected in the testing process to his or her size and golf swing. If the fitting specifications are standard, Miles of Golf stocks these clubs and the player leaves with his or her clubs. If the specifications are not standard, the specifications are then forwarded to the custom club department of the club-maker and the clubs are assembled. The typical delivery time on custom clubs is two weeks. Clubs that must be ordered have a $25 shipping and handling fee.

Cluboratory Iron Fittings.
After testing clubs and choosing the manufacturer and model of iron, the fitting process begins. With irons, the process identifies the correct shaft (length, composition, and flex), grip (size and composition), and the critical relationship between the shaft and the club-head called the lie angle. Also important in fitting irons is determining the clubs the player wants in the set. Custom clubs are ordered by the piece, or club, so if a player does not want a #3 or #4 irons, they are not ordered reducing the price of the set. Testing and fitting irons takes approximately 45 minutes. The testing and fitting fees are fully refundable if clubs are purchased. If they are not, the testing fee is $25 and the fitting fee is $75. In most cases, irons need to be custom ordered. Walk-ins are welcomed but appointments can be scheduled in advance and take precedence over walk-ins.

Cluboratory Metal Wood Fittings. After testing clubs, the process of fitting woods identifies the correct shaft (length, composition, and flex), grip (size and composition), and with drivers the correct loft. Unlike irons, the lie angle on woods is in most instances not a variable that needs to be addressed. The testing and fitting of woods takes 30-45 minutes. The testing and fitting fees are fully refundable if clubs are purchased. If they are not, the testing fee is $25 and the fitting fee is $25. In many cases, woods do not need to be custom ordered and Miles of Golf has them in stock. Walk-ins are welcomed but appointments can be scheduled in advance and take precedence over walk-ins.

Cluboratory Fitting Evaluation.
This fitting analyzes a player’s current set to see how well it fits. It performs many of the same tests as the iron and wood fittings. The player receives recommendations on changes that can be made. This usually involves changing the length of shafts and bending loft and lie angles. The cost of this fitting is $25 for woods and the same for irons. The Miles of Golf repair shop can usually make any changes, but the fee does not cover the cost of these changes.

Frequently asked fitting questions:

This sounds great but expensive. Club-makers charge us the same for custom clubs or stock clubs. Therefore, the price of our custom clubs should be close, if not the same, as competitor’s stock clubs. Our staff will spend a fair amount of time helping customers testing and fitting clubs. A fee is incurred only if you do not do not purchase the clubs. If you purchase clubs, these fees in most cases, are completely refundable. Custom irons are from $300 and up. Drivers are from $200 and up.
You’re impatient. The club testing and fitting typically takes an hour or less and is both fun and informative. Delivery time varies with club-makers and the time of the year. The shortest is one-day delivery, and it rarely exceeds two weeks. The benefits of getting quality clubs made specifically for you can be extremely significant to how well they perform. Simply put, it’s well worth the short wait.
What if you’re not the best player? Actually, better golfers probably can adapt to ill-fitting clubs better than do average golfers. Golf becomes easier for everyone with clubs adapted to you instead of you adapting to your clubs.
My long irons all go about the same distance. Part of fitting is selecting which clubs should be in your bag. Stock iron sets come in a standard configuration that may not fit your game. If this is the case, you are paying with clubs you should not be using. When ordering custom clubs, our club-fitters help you determine which clubs you should be carrying. You only pay for what you order.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. Is a Maxx Fitting right for me?

Although a Maxx fitting can provide useful information for almost anyone who is interested in their launch conditions, it is really most beneficial to golfers who tend to make consistently solid shots. Because severe miss-hits will cause ball speed, launch angle and spin rate to fluctuate greatly, the numbers gathered from these types of shots will do little to provide the fitter with reliable information to make a practical and sound recommendation to the player. This does not mean you need to make perfect contact with every shot to benefit from this fitting. Occasional miss-hits are simply discarded and will not influence the resulting averages for that particular club. You also have the freedom to inform the fitter when you make a bad swing, even if the result is a fairly centered hit, in order to keep such atypical shots from skewing the results.

2. What are the differences between a Cluboratory and a Maxx Cluboratory Fitting?

First of all, both of these fittings are of exception high quality and most golfers will be satisfied with either one. The goals are the same, to help golfers find equipment that will improve their game.

Probably the biggest difference between the two is the use of the TrackMan ball flight monitor throughout the Maxx Fittings. It does give the club-fitters more information to help with the testing and fitting process, but it uses very expensive equipment and is time consuming so therefore more costly. Even with this equipment, the club-fitters will still closely observe the ball in its full flight just as they do with the normal Cluboratory fitting. For an experienced club-fitter, observing the ball flight is critically important to performing their job. The normal Cluboratory fitting takes ball flight measurements to verify that the clubs fit.

Golfers who are really into the game and want to thoroughly examine exotic shaft options will love the Maxx Fittings. If you have a less intense interest in the game but still want high quality clubs that fit, the normal Cluboratory fittings are perfect for you.

    I am looking for a Cobra Pro CB gap wedge that is new or like new condition. I tried to buy one and they sent the S3 but I do not like it. Would be willing to trade the S3 for the Pro CB if interested

Coming out of the haze: What to expect from the OEMs in the second half of 2020

Published

on

As we slowly come out of the lockdown haze, it’s going to be interesting to see which OEMs are primed to come out swinging. From where I sit, there are a few companies that either kept the foot on the pedal or found new ways to interact with the masses. I have been tracking the major companies for different reasons, and I am optimistic on most fronts. Now, it needs to be said that everyone has been keeping the respective momentum going in their own ways—this has been a challenge for everyone, so this analysis is simply a commentary on what may come in the second half of the year.

Many good folks were either furloughed or laid off during this lockdown—that’s where we all lost. It needs to be acknowledged that we are talking about golf here, but the underlying reality of this is still devastating. I so look forward to getting into the trenches with these folks again either back where they were or at new companies.

TaylorMade became educators…and kicked off live golf again

Big giant club company or big giant marketing machine…it doesn’t matter what you label them as. TaylorMade Golf, in my opinion, turned the heartbreak of stalling one of the biggest first quarters in company history into an opportunity to start talking…and teaching. With the help of the tour team and TM athletes, TaylorMade focused hard on talking to us all during the lockdown. With multiple initiatives through social media, the Driving Relief event, and the tour staff engaging way more than usual. I believe TM created a runway to start moving quickly once stores and pro shops open up again.

Let’s face it, with the social media presence, the most robust tour staff maybe ever, and the driver everyone seems to have reserved for the top big stick of 2020, what’s not to be confident about? On the flip side, a company that big could have really taken it on the chin hard, but how they handled the lockdown—from my chair—was fun to watch and will ultimately ensure a quick restart. There is something to be said about having guys like Trottie, Adrian, and Hause in the fold informing and keeping things fun.

Rumor has it new irons are dropping in the fall/winter, which could spell two awesome bookends to a bittersweet 2020.

PXG leaned in

Why online sales for all OEMs spiked is no mystery. Boredom, desire, and a credit card are keys to any great online buying experience, but PXG made certain that if you were not a buyer previously, you may be now.

The price tag has always been a key topic with Bob Parsons’ Scottsdale-based company. It’s no secret that the clubs aren’t cheap, but during this lockdown, they did multiple strategic initiatives to not only crank up direct-to-consumer buying but also expand the PXG conversation into different areas, namely fashion.

Price cuts across the board started early and, rumor has it, enabled PXG to achieve sales numbers unlike any other period in the company’s short history. Yes, cutting prices helps unit sales, but in the case of PXG, it brought in the club customer that ordinarily shied away from PXG for financial reasons and ultimately made them buyers. That’s where PXG seems to shine, once they finally get you in, they are very effective at keeping you in the family. Mercedes-Benz AMG is like that: once you have had a taste of the Kool-Aid, it’s hard to go back to Hawaiian Punch.

In addition to the aggressive price-cutting, PXG fashion, spearheaded by President Renee Parsons, launched a new collection that is designed and manufactured by PXG. Fashion in times like these is always a risk from a financial standpoint, but this launch has been on the calendar since the BOY and the current lockdown did not disrupt that. It speaks to the confidence that Bob and Renee have in what they are doing. Now, is it a guarantee that PXG garments will fly off the shelves? No. but that’s not the point, it’s the fact that this current climate didn’t scare them into pivoting or holding off.

Point to this pick is PXG looks healthy coming out of this and it was possible to believe that perhaps this would have taken a toll on the custom fit brand. There is even a commercial produced during lockdown to attract even more club builders to the fold. Not normal behavior in times like these, but is anything that PXG does normal? No, and that’s what makes them fun to talk about.

The company also released its Essential Facemask with 50 percent of proceeds going to Team Rubicon.

Ping was quiet…but don’t be fooled

Yes, they did some rare social media engagements with Kenton Oates and the tour staff, which were fantastic. But the real magic here was the quiet way in which Ping slipped into 2020 and the mystery they have in hand and what’s to come next.

There hasn’t been really any new Ping product in a good while, and I anticipate a big winter for the Solheim crew. Sometimes, silence is golden and from what I can gather, what Ping has coming in irons and woods will be yet again a launch that gets people talking.

Ping from a business standpoint is a company that gets one percent better every year. Never any dramatic shifts in strategy or product. It’s always good, it’s always high-performance, and it’s always in the “best of” category across the board.

Watch out for them over the next six to nine months…a storm is brewing. A good one.

Cobra introduced the “Rickie iron”

Cobra Rev 33 Irons

Compared to 2019 and the runaway success that was the F9 driver, Cobra Golf seemed to cruise along in the first quarter of 2020. The SpeedZone metal wood line was an improvement tech-wise from the F9 but seemed to get lost in the driver launch shuffle with an earlier release—and frankly everyone in the industry took a back seat to TaylorMade’s SIM.

It’s not placing one stick over the other actually, I have been very vocal about my affections for both, it’s just some years, the story around a club can generate excitement, and if the club is exceptional, boom. Cobra was that cool kid in 2019.

What Cobra decided to do in the downtime is slowly tease and taunt with a “Rickie Fowler” iron. Players blades aren’t typically the driving element of any business model, but what Cobra did was introduce to a beautiful yet completely authentic forging that will not only get the gear heads going nuts but also entice the better players to start looking at Cobra as a serious better players iron company. No small feat.

Point is, Cobra has generated buzz. It helped that Rickie’s performance at Seminole was just short of a precision clinic. Beyond the Rev 33, its rumored Cobra has a new players CB coming and some MIM wedges.

It should be an exciting last half for the Cobra crew.

The Titleist train chugged on

I mean, what else is there to say about Titleist? They are as American as apple pie, have a stranglehold on multiple tour and retail categories, and one of the best front offices in golf. The company is a well-oiled machine.

So what do I expect from them in the last half? Well pretty much what I would expect on any other year, solid player-driven equipment. A metal wood launch is coming, the SM8 was a huge hit in stores and on tour, and the ball portion is the biggest 800-pound gorilla in golf.

It was also nice to see a little more social media interaction beyond the traditional. Aaron Dill has been very active on the social media front and a good portion of the tour staff, namely Poulter, JT, and Homa were proactive in engagement. Might seem trivial to some, but specifically, Titleist and Ping are not super active in the organic interaction game, so it was nice to see both companies dive into the fold.

Cleveland/Srixon should have a lot to look forward to

Let’s be honest here, 2019 was a quiet year overall for Srixon. Shane Lowry won The Open, but in the golf mainstream it was a leap year for them in regards to any launches. The anticipation from me personally of what is to come is quite strong. I adore the irons. I have yet to meet one I didn’t love, and fitters across the country will speak to that in sales. The Srixon iron line has become a popular yet-sort-of-cult-classic among fitters and gearheads and rightly so. They are phenomenal.

The recently teased picture of the new driver on the USGA site more or less teased us of what is to come for the overall line. New Cleveland wedges are coming shortly and the golf ball has always been a solid component to the Huntington Beach company.

As much as anyone in the market, I believe Srixon could finish the year with some serious momentum going into 2021. The irons and ball have always been firestarters. My only wish for them, selfishly, is a more aggressive tour strategy in regards to landing one of the perennial top 10. It seems like a dumb thought, but I have always felt Cleveland/Srixon was always a serious hitter that at times seems to get lost in the conversation. Having a big gun on staff or a couple of them will remedy that quickly.

Callaway has an eye on big things for the golf ball

Callaway, a company that seems to do it all well, was actually a bit quiet since the lockdown started. After a solid release of the Mavrik line and some momentum in the golf ball area, I’m sure this lockdown probably felt like a kick to the shin.

However, this company is shifting in a good way. The idea that they were a golf club company that happened to make golf balls is slowly turning into a company with multiple major components that stand alone. TaylorMade is on a similar shift, and honestly it’s very interesting to watch. Do I think that anyone will ever catch Titleist in the ball category? No, I don’t. All of these mentioned golf balls are ridiculously good, but 75 years of trust and loyalty are hard to compete with. But that’s not the point, Callaway is a monster company that takes the golf ball conversation very seriously, and I believe this will serve them very well coming out of this craziness and help the momentum going into 2021.

Tour Edge EXS Pro Forged irons launched

Published

on

Tour Edge is expanding its better player targeted EXS Pro line with the addition of the all-new EXS Pro Forged irons—a tour-inspired design developed with multi-material technology, and looks to match.

Just like the limited edition EXP Pro driver, the EXS Pro Forged irons utilize the highest quality materials and processes to deliver a golf club built for the most discerning players. The goal of designer David Glod was to produce the most forgiving distance iron possible in a player-preferred package and the EXS Pro Forged live up to the lofty challenge.

 “As a club designer, I love player iron designs that are as beautiful as they are playable. These three designs were made to be irons that are drooled over by the core golfer, not only in looks and feel, but in how they perform.” David Glod – Tour Edge Lead Designer

“I believe that the milled forged iron connoisseurs out there are going to be very impressed with the playability we were able to combine with a traditional forged feel.”

Inside the Exotics EXS Pro forged irons

The EXS Pro Forged cavity iron is constructed of Japanese S25C mild carbon steel to offer an extremely soft feel to the golfer. After the forging process, the faces are CNC milled to precise tolerances and the grooves are designed to maximize performance throughout the set. The CNC milling of the EXS Pro doesn’t stop at the face either—the cavity is designed to boost MOI as much as possible in the compact clubhead, so the back of the club is also CNC milled to offer the thinnest face possible without sacrificing feel.

Speaking of feel, the term forged can be overused in the world of golf club construction with some lesser companies only stamping precast pieces once and calling them forged, but the EXS are not those clubs. The S25C club heads are triple-forged (struck 3 times at very high-pressure) to offer a thinner, stronger clubhead that allows the designer to push more mass to the toe and heel weight pads for more forgiveness and more consistent ball speeds across the face. To further improve feedback, the iron has an acoustic engineered cavity insert consisting of a polymer and a dampening gel to provide the best possible sound and feel.

Now about ball speeds and technology: The 3- 6-irons in the EXS Pro Forged cavity have a concealed 10g tungsten toe weight to push more mass away from the hosel and make the clubs more forgiving on heel and toe misses in the longer irons. This is similar technology to irons that are priced much higher in the market.

Availability, Specs & Pricing

The new Exotics EXS Pro Forged irons will be available for purchase on June 1, 2020 through select Tour Edge retailers and custom club fitting locations.

The stock shafts are: True Temper Elevate Tour VSS Pro—available in regular and stiff flex—as well as True Temper Dynamic Gold 105 in R300, S300.

The stock grip will be the Golf Pride Tour Velvet 360.

$149.99 per iron.

New limited-edition Tour Edge Exotics EXS Blade irons and wedges unveiled

Published

on

Tour Edge Exotics EXS blade irons

Tour Edge has unveiled its new limited-edition “Straight From the Tour Van” Exotics EXS Blade irons and wedges featuring forged designs with CNC milling.

Per Tour Edge, the Exotics EXS Blade irons combine “tour-level inspired looks and feel with advanced materials and innovation to produce the most forgiveness and distance possible in a player’s iron.”

Each iron and wedge are individually milled from carbon steel and “engineered for players who look for the ultimate in control and shot shaping.”

Tour Edge Exotics EXS blade irons

The new Tour Edge EXS Blade irons feature a narrow sole, a thin top line, and a beveled leading edge and square toe design. The irons also contain a shorter blade length and a cambered top line in a bid to provide golfers with a more compact scoring iron.

Tour Edge Exotics EXS blade irons

Designed with advanced CAD technology and pure milled forging, the new additions from Tour Edge feature micro-cavity face and scoring lines that are all individually CNC milled and designed to offer maximum responsiveness and control.

Tour Edge Exotics EXS blade irons

Fully USGA conforming, the blades are CNC milled on both sides, which aims to offer golfers a club that has extremely tight tolerance and consistency from iron to iron.

Tour Edge Exotics EXS blade irons

The clubs feature Japanese S25C carbon steel, which is chrome plated with a dual finish. The irons contain a high polish and a satin finish in all the milled areas of the clubhead.

Tour Edge Exotics EXS blade irons

The sole of the EXS Pro Blade iron head features a rounded radius on the leading edge of the clubhead – a design which seeks to significantly reduce drag and turf interaction through impact to provide ultimate consistency on every shot.

Tour Edge Exotics EXS Blade wedges

Designed from Japanese S25C Carbon Steel, the new blade wedges from Tour Edge are individually CNC milled on the face and grooves in design to create maximum spin from advanced groove engineering.

Tour Edge Exotics EXS blade wedges

The EXS Milled Forged wedges utilize dual-groove construction, with the lower loft (50° – 52°) wedges designed with deeper, narrower grooves while the higher lofts (54° – 60°) have wider grooves.

Tour Edge Exotics EXS blade wedges

The Exotics EXS Blade wedges feature a Center of Gravity (CG) that has been moved up in the clubhead with a milled-out center design. The milled-out center on the wedges leads to more weight being positioned both up and down in design for greater distance control on shots higher and lower on the face.

Tour Edge Exotics EXS blade wedges

The EXS Pro’s sole grind on the new blade wedges seeks to reduce bounce from the heel and toe for greater versatility when hitting a variety of shots, especially from difficult lies. 

Tour Edge Exotics EXS blade wedges

The blade wedges contain a Flare Toe design which places the center of gravity higher in order to provide for lower launch and more spin. A chamfer was also added to the trailing top line of the wedge for a slightly thicker top line that moves weight up without affecting the aesthetics of the top line at address.

Tour Edge Exotics EXS blade wedges

As with the blade irons, the wedges are 100 percent conforming to the USGA rules.

Specs, Availability and Pricing

Stock Shafts: True Temper Dynamic Gold 115 Wedge Flex
