Greg Johnson – Full Time Master ClubFitter at Fairways

March 5th, 2020

Welcome Greg!  I met Greg several years ago and trained him on our BGF (Better Golf Faster) Fitting System.  He has been doing fittings in the Nashville, TN, area for a couple of different country clubs and golf facilities.  I convinced him to come to Colorado with his family and take on the fitting duties at Fairways at the Stable and here we are!  Luckily, Greg’s family was not affected by the terrible tornadoes that hit the Nashville area this week. Greg is up to speed on the latest fitting techniques and technology and all of the new heads and shafts.  He will be full time at The Fairways so give him a call at 615-426-9983  or email him at [email protected] and set up either a new fitting or a re-fit if you are a previous customer.  Or, you can book your fitting at the Fairways here.   You can continue to work with our other great fitters, Chris Melendez or Brandon Shupick as they will be continuing to work with us at both the Fairways and our Englewood location. Here is a little more about Greg’s background: First and foremost, I am a complete sports junkie. I love everything about... Read More

Each year we are blessed with notes from our customers on their results during the year, and actually over the years.  Our fitting system really works and we are proud to help our customers achieve their golf goals!  Here are some of the results: Best Golf Season…Ever! In the spirit of reflection on the things I’m thankful for, I want to express to gratitude to you (and for you). 2019 was my best golf season….ever! In June I won the 1st flight of the 2 day stroke play at Colorado Golf Club! Winning one of our majors qualified me for our end of year Ryder cup (aka the CGC Cup)….which I went on to help win as well!! It’s nice to know I’ll have something that always be in the locker room at CGC with my name on it. The best part of this season was getting my index down to a true 4-5 index and simply enjoying this game more than ever. Winning bets at a 4:1 ratio also really helped my enjoyment. I’ll be back to see you in the late winter/early spring. I’d like to defend my titles in 2020 and possibly win more. Thank you and... Read More

From Junior Golfers to Senior Golfers, Here Are Some Great Stories!

July 25th, 2019

We have a lot of golfers, actually over 10,000, that have gone through our fitting system and have gotten great results.  Just in the last week here are some of their stories: Gavin Amella – 11 year old junior golfer. We first started working with Gavin when he was 8 years old and using US Kids clubs.  We recommend junior golfers not graduate to heavier clubs until their strength and ability warrant the move.  Well, Gavin has been progressing very quickly and is winning tournaments hand over fist.  He just competed in the Optimist International Junior Tournament at Doral and placed in the top 10 in his age group.  He also won the longest drive with a drive of 249 yards!  Gavin is off to Pinehurst next week for the US Kids National competition.   Addison Hines – 12 year old junior golfer Addison, pictured on the right in the photo, also came to us when she was eight or nine.  Her dad, Derek Hines, claimed 3rd place in the 2008 World Long Drive Championship so Addison has a good gene pool there!  Addison also competed at Doral in the Optimist International Junior Tournament and placed in the top 30...
