Nike announced it’s NEW 2014 Line-Up right about the same time Rory had his first Win of the year! Is that a coincidence or maybe some renewed confidence in Mr. McIlroy? The new line up plays on last years VRS Covert Line. Nike has the VRS Covert 2.0 Driver, Fairway and Hybrid with a NEW VRS Covert FORGED iron set and a VR X3X Toe Sweep Wedge line. We have not had a chance to test the new line yet, since they haven’t been released to the general public yet, but the reviews we have seen from those playing them on tour are pretty positive. For those of you who are die-hard Nike enthusiasts, these clubs will be available mid to late January and hopefully by that time Rory has another win with the NEW line!
D’Lance would like to thank all of the Vendors and Manufacturers that helped make our Customer Appreciation Day a success. Saturday was a very busy day with equipment demonstrations most of the day. We had Mike Mendoza our New TaylorMade Rep, Ryan Wosser with Adams, Robert Wright of Winn and Trent with Callaway. We were able to allow our Customers the opportunity to test the newest equipment and compare to other lines. Also, with the help of our vendors, TaylorMade, Winn, Mitsubishi Rayon and UST Mamiya, we were able to give away over $2000 in products to our guests. It was a great day and nice to give back to our loyal customers. Thank you to everyone who attended and to those who helped make the day a success. Happy Holidays and a Very Happy New Year to you all!

When you are looking for consistency in your golf game, look no farther than your golf bag. This is a great game but it is the only sport I know of that requires 14 different clubs to hit one ball! The chances of those clubs being consistent in weight distribution, shaft flex, length, loft and lie are slim to none. Every player that we fit ends up with clubs that are matched to their swing (strength and launch dynamics) and built to our exacting standards. This allows you to build a consistent swing with clubs that feel and perform the same throughout your set. Imagine a baseball player trying to hit consistently with one bat that is 35″ long and weighs 36 ounces, and another that is 34″ long and weighs 32 ounces. Just won’t happen. I am sure you have a club or two in your bag that you “love to hate” which requires a completely different swing to make it work. We eliminate that problem! So, if you have never been through a complete high-tech fitting, and have not had clubs built to your specifications, now is the time to set the bar a little higher. Schedule your... Read More
Robert has been coming to us for several years and is very disciplined in his approach to getting his clubs exactly right. He is also not afraid to experiment and see what really works. His efforts have paid off as he has dropped his handicap significantly and was named Player of the Year in his golf league. In Robert’s words: “I want to thank you and your staff for years of help with my clubs and patience in listening to my less than technical explanations of what feels right for me. I can honestly say that since I have started working with you, I have NEVER bought a golf club without your assistance and guidance.” Thank you, Robert! What’s next…a Monday Qualifier for the BMW next fall at Cherry Hills?

MSRP: $400.00 USD Availability: Authorized Mitsubishi Rayon dealers.

Any golfer, new or experienced, who is about to make a significant purchase such as new golf clubs, show add to that investment… a club fitting. Why? Because not all players are the same size, or have the same shape or most importantly the same golf swing! A custom club fitting will result in custom built clubs that are specifically designed to an individual’s height, strength, club head speed and swing characteristics. Off-the-rack golf clubs are essentially “one size fits all” clubs! If you have never had a custom club fitting or it has been a while since your last one, you owe it to yourself to make sure your fitting includes the latest in high tech measurements. Launch and ball flight monitors can tell you a lot, but using them to compare your performance with your existing clubs against new heads and shafts will give you the data you need to make a good decision. But there is even one more step that will take you to the next level. The “best” fittings take into account the load you actually put on a shaft and relate that to the weight, shaft stiffness, shaft trajectory,tip stiffness and even feel. The fitter will have you try different... Read More
In August of this year, Mr. Brian Hansen came to us for a complete club fitting, after a long day working with our very own “Student of the Game” PJ Garber, he purchased a set of Mizuno JPX 825 Pros and TaylorMade Stage 2 Rescue, all custom fit and custom built with new shafts to his exact specifications. After a few months in play, he sent us this great email…. “In August I picked up my new Muzuno/fubuki irons you made for me. Immediately went down 3 hdcp points. Right way I knew I was going to like the clubs, but I did not know how much I was going to like the 50, 58 and 60 degree wedges and the hybrid…especially the hybrid. They are real shot makers. Thank you for a excellent fit.” B. Hansen Do you have a D’Lance success story? If so we would like to hear it! Send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
