The New Search for the Perfect Golf Club

By Tom Wishon, with Tom Grundner

Selected as the 2005-06 Book of the Year by the International Network of Golf

Look what Tom’s done for you lately… He wrote a book. Not just any book, but one that emphasizes what you have to offer the millions of golfers currently buying OEM clubs that don’t fit them, and won’t help them play to the best of their ability.

Endorsements from golf’s luminaries…

“A few years ago, Tom Wishon, with his experience as a designer, helped me understand more about a particular aspect of golf club performance.

“With this book, Tom will help you understand the entire field, make good buying decisions and get the most from your game.”

– Arnold Palmer (Member, World Golf Hall of Fame)

“If you are a woman golfer, you MUST get this book! It’s the best club information for women golfers I’ve seen. Tom covers everything we need to know (but maybe were afraid to ask). Do not buy a club from the rack before you learn how much better off you could be with custom fitting.”

– Carol Mann (Member, World Golf Hall of Fame)

“In the course of my career I don’t know how many pro-am rounds I have played. In all those rounds, rarely have I seen amateurs with clubs that genuinely fit their game. For me, Tom Wishon stripped away the mystery of club fitting, which I believe helped me to become a Top 20 player on the PGA Tour.

“I am convinced this book will allow average golfers to get on the right track with their equipment as well. It is a ‘must read’ whether you are a scratch player or a beginner.”

– Scott Verplank (PGA Touring Pro)

“Tom Wishon’s knowledge of golf equipment isn’t theoretical. It’s practical. He understands not just the theory of why and how golf equipment works, but how all golfers can make technology work for them.

” Even more importantly, he makes that knowledge easily understood whether you’re a Ph.D. in mechanical engineering or a CPA trying to break 90.”

– Mike Stachura (Equipment Editor Golf Digest magazine

  • My name is Ernie (64 years old) and I decided to have a custom fitting for my next set of irons. I had the opportunity to play a few rounds of golf with Craig and he told me that he was able to do custom fitting. In previous years I went to a golf shop and bought what I was told would work for me. I went to his house where his workshop is at the back of his premises. We discussed what I wanted to achieve and after the long talk I decided on graphite shafts with forged heads. From then on we did an intensive fitting session with various combinations of graphite shafts and heads. My final combinations were made up of SK Fiber Pure Energy shafts with ACER XS Forged heads and Karma grips. Would I recommend having a custom fitting … for sure YES!!!!!

  • As a golf teacher, Craig Forth’s tuition has always been an accurate assessment of my game and by the end of the session I am hitting the ball much better and of even more importance, I come away with an understanding of the causes and effects of changes / habits of my golf swing. Having not only the lesson but also the improved capacity to work it myself makes his teaching of great assistance to my golf game. Only wish I had time to practice what I learn, but that’s another story.

  • The set of clubs I play with today is vastly improved over the retail equipment I was using. For ages I struggled with painful hands and arms and it was getting worse. Fortunately I was introduced to Craig Forth, and due to his club fitting know-how in setting my clubs with the correct shaft, grip and lie angles etc, the strain on my body was considerably reduced, and as a bonus the clubs are now more suited to my swing. Without Craig’s expertise, it’s doubtful that I could be playing today. His passion and knowledge built over many years continue to amaze me.

    Les Bollenhagen - Club Fitting
  • I have always felt that clubs off the rack were not quite the right fit for me, I would have to modify my swing and club delivery to get the desired results. After struggling with this for years I contacted Craig to get some help.
    Craig was fantastic; he completely understood what I was trying to explain. He began by watching me hitting balls in the net, while discussing what he thought could be improved in my game. The first thing he did was check the length, lie, loft and swing weight of my clubs. Then he used a series of impact and lie angle testing methods to find the strike patterns before making some adjustments and then re-testing until we were both happy with the results. It turned out that I needed a flatter lie angle than standard.
    The outcome was amazing! My irons strikes are so pure now with better feel through the turf and my consistency has improved dramatically. Thanks to Craig and his vast knowledge on golf and club fitting, my shots are sweeter and straighter and my scores are lower.
