"For the first time ever, when purchasing a new set of irons, I decided to take advantage of the custom fit service offered at my home club, Bowood. Ryan Dix immediately made me feel at ease and able to hit the good solid shots needed to get the most out of the fitting. Ryan is an outstanding communicator and his knowledge is second to none. The shaft and club head combination recommended was in no way biased and produced excellent results in the fitting. These results are in turn bearing out on the course, giving me the confidence to play to the best of my ability. I will never buy golf equipment again without taking advantage of a custom fit. I am so pleased that I took advantage of this service, thank you to both Ryan and Bowood."Jason Ritchie, November 2019
