"Ben methodically worked with me to...shoot in the low to mid 80's and I now have a single digit handicap for the first time. Seeing video...has been extremely helpful. Ben also fit me for a new set of irons, which I love."

"We were able to bring my handicap down 6 strokes...Ben also fitted my wife with her irons and driver and she loves her new clubs. Seeing the videos of my swing...provided instant feedback and were a huge benefit."

"I was a 15 handicap and had never broken 80. Today I'm a 4 handicap and last summer shot my first round under par. Ben fitted me for my entire set (he is brand agnostic), and made steady improvements on my swing...over the years."

Ryan H.- verified Yelp Review


Being able to see my swings instantly helped me understand how to make changes to my swing. Better than trying to learn on a driving range. My father loves the clubs that Ben Knighton fit for him.
