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 what sports stand for, as a player and a coach. I am a competitor to the core and can get a bit fiery at times. My other passion is photography and I’ll have endless opportunities in CO.
I attended Bowling Green State University, where I competed in both baseball and football at the D1 level. I was recognized as an All-Conference Academic student athlete and earned collegiate All-American honors as a punter. I signed a free agent contract with the Detroit Lions after graduation. I also earned letterman honors as a left handed pitcher, first baseman and outfielder for the BGSU baseball team.
My love for the game of golf started with my dad taking me to the course when I was about 13. I took to the game quickly and loved learning the nuances of the game and of course hitting it hard. I always wanted to stay involved in the game and have experience teaching and coaching. I tried my hand at the mini tours after being released from the Lions. Unfortunately, my career was cut short after a I was in an accident with a drunk driver. I suffered back and knee injuries, which prevented me from playing at that level again.
I was fortunate to meet Dan Sueltz of D’Lance Golf in 2013. I earned certifications as a master club fitter and builder through my training with Dan. I love working with clients and helping them play Better Golf Faster through the proper fitting and building of expertly made equipment. It is truly an honor that clients put their trust in me and D’Lance Golf Performance Center to help them achieve their golfing goals.
I have coached and mentored junior golfers in the middle TN area for the past 5 years. I have enhanced all players performance with TPI Fitness training and the club fitting and building process utilizing D’lance Golf Performance software program (BGF – Better Golf… Faster). Using proper equipment has improved player success, with several players earning full golf scholarships.
My wife Carrie, daughter Avery and two sons, Ryan and Tyler are excited to be relocating to the Denver area. We look forward to getting involved in the community and taking advantage of all the great things Denver has to offer.
I will be managing The Fairways at The Stable in Superior for D’lance Golf Performance Center.
I look forward to meeting you soon.
Best Regards, Greg A. Johnson
