Frequently Asked Questions
How long does a fitting take?
A full fitting process for a complete set of irons, woods, wedges and putter, takes 3 hours. If you are just looking for woods or irons then a fitting takes one hour.
What Kind of Guarantee is there?
The companies have their own guarantees which normally include fixing anything that happens to the club from a construction perspective. We at the academy will guarantee your fit if for any reason you feel something is not right. We also tune each set when it arrives to make sure everything is perfect before you pick them up. Not many other sellers go to this length after the sale to make sure your set is perfect.
Can you alter clubs that are purchased off of the rack?
We have a full club repair room that can alter most clubs but it is always best to have a set fit before purchasing so the adjustments are only minor.
What if I want to purchase a different brand than you offer?
We can still provide you with an excellent fit and then give you the results so that you could go to someone who sells the brand you are interested in. In some cases we will be able to order the clubs for you but there are some limitations on our ability to offer all brands.
The Discount shops like Dicks Sporting goods, Edwin Watts, Golf Smith and others seem to offer cheaper prices. Do you match their prices?
Our prices are competitive with the major equipment retailers. Because of our Master club fitting experience and continuing service after the sale, the fitting fee is a small price to pay knowing you can always come back to us if there are ever any problems.
What makes your fitting process better than the rest?
Our expert club fitter and Head Instructor knows the importance of blending how to properly fit equipment with specific swing fundamentals. He also uses the Track Man Radar, which is the best in the industry, used by all major club manufacturers, as well as the USGA and R&A. Our Master Club Fitter tunes every club once it arrives from the manufacturer to ensure the proper specs, before it reaches the player’s hands. Although our sales are final, our service is forever. Here at the Mike Bender Golf Academy we can guarantee the most comprehensive club fitting, as our reputation depends on it!
