The golf bug bit Joerg von der Gathen years ago. His love of the game and his interest in building materials and engineering details led him to master the art of club fitting. Because of his extensive training, Joerg is able to select a club model that has the design features required to perfectly fit any golfer. He understands the profile of a shaft and can select the features that will optimize the final club. Joerg has been named one of the World’s Top 100 Clubfitters for five years in a row, 2013-2017. He is also a member of the International Professional Association of Clubfitters (IPAC), a prestigious group comprised of global leaders in the field of custom clubfitting.
Joerg is adamant that you can’t teach around ill-fitting clubs. He knows that the a proper fitting is a prerequisite for game improvement. New golfers have the most to gain as they really do not know what they need and haven’t developed the proper feel, expectations and performance of a club. Most avid golfers already know how important it is to be custom fit and many have made Joerg their golf “partner”. And lefties get special attention from Joerg!
Joerg’s passion for helping other golfers is best stated in his own words: “It is my wish that, after successful fitting of your new clubs, you only have one thing left to deal with… your game of golf.”
