The Custom Club Fitting: Hot Stix Golf

What do you give the golfer who has everything? Try an extra ten yards off the tee or a few more successful putts per round, both of which can be accomplished with the help of a club fitting—something every player (regardless of skill level) should experience. Scottsdale, Arizona–based Hot Stix Golf was one of the first outfits to offer custom fitting in the mid-2000s and remains among the best. Using TrackMan radar and other high-tech tools, the company’s technicians diagnose a golfer’s swing “DNA” and offer a variety of possible paths to improvement. Even seemingly trivial details, like what type of grip to use, are carefully considered. Best of all, Hot Stix doesn’t favor one manufacturer over another, so customers can be confident that their prescriptions are truly right for their individual games. Studios are also located in New York, the San Francisco Bay Area, and Palm Beach, Florida. Rates start at $100 for putter fitting, $550 for game fitting (a full bag of clubs); 877-513-1333; hotstixgolf.com.
