About Andrew Hodson

http://hodsongolf.com

I am the youngest with in a golfing family which has spanned three generations. My grandfather started the tradition in England (Bert Hodson-1931 Ryder Cup Team) and has since passed on his knowledge and love of the game. Although I did not follow in the steps of my father and grandfather on a professional golfing level, my love of the game and commitment to accurately fit equipment has only grown. Even as a kid I enjoyed re-gripping clubs which eventually led to refinishing wood heads, re-shafting, and now has culminated in more detailed custom club fitting, building, and repair.

The much anticipated new Mizuno JPX 919 iron line will be available for custom fittings next week through Hodson Golf

We considered the last Mizuno 900 series to be the best performing iron line that Mizuno has ever produced (and their club sale counts and countless tour victories are supportive). We are excited to get the new JPX 919 lineup next week for custom fittings. If you are not on our current list of those “in the corral” please contact us directly as we will begin setting up our private fitting schedules for this incredible line once we get the tracking info on our heads (anticipating 8/20 fittings to begin). Be the first to get your custom set ordered with custom set ship date currently set at 9/4.

New Pre-Release of the Graphite Design Tour AD VR (Vanquish All Rivals)- They’ve done it again!

New Pre-Release of the Graphite Design Tour AD VR (Vanquish All Rivals)- They’ve done it again!

How can Graphite Design keep producing better and better shafts – by using the latest high quality space age ingredients coupled with industry leading Japanese engineering. NOTE: AS THE AREAS LEADING GRAPHITE DESIGN DEALER HODSON GOLF WILL HAVE THESE PROTOTYPE BEASTS IN HAND MID SEPTEMBER FOR CUSTOM FITTING (THE VR WILL BE AN OFFICIAL 2019 RELEASE). CONTACT US NOW TO GET ON THE FITTING LINEUP AND WE WILL KEEP YOU POSTED WHEN WE HAVE THEM IN-HAND.

We have been saying here at Hodson Golf  for years that the “holy grail” of driver shafts would be the highest launching, lowest spinning, shaft with the most tip stability. We began to see this game changing transition with the notable Tour AD DI (“Deep Impact”-the Orange shaft) and then improved with the Tour AD IZ (Into the Zone) that came out last year.

Well move over everybody here comes the VR (Vanquish All Rivals)

The Tour AD VR wood shaft will be available in the standard weights of 45, 55, 65, 75 and 85 grams.  The Tour AD VR shaft profile is firm to stiff starting at the handle, medium/firm in the center section and has a firm tip to promote a mid/high launch angle and low ball spin rates.  The Tour ADVR also utilizes TORAYCA ® T1100G carbon-fiber pre-preg with NANOALLOY ® technology in the tip section of the shaft for additional shaft stability, exceptional feel and precise ball control.  Note attached Tour AD VR spec. sheet and Bend Profiles Comparison chart for the complete details on this new shaft offering.

Limited Time (Military Only) – Iron Fitting for Specs – PXG for Heroes program

Limited Time (Military Only) – Iron Fitting for Specs – PXG for Heroes program

As a special thanks to our military, Hodson Golf is temporarily waiving our policy regarding custom fittings for clubs purchased/built solely by Hodson Golf. This temporary waiver extends only to the current PXG promotion “PXG for Heroes”. During this time period Hodson Golf will book on a first-come first-served basis full launch monitor iron fittings for the promotional PXG Generation 1 irons. Our typical $150 fitting fee will still apply but we will provide each fitted customer with their respective spec sheet where they can purchase their custom PXG Generation 1 irons directly through the PXG for heroes website at a substantial savings.

Reminder – Hodson Golf annual Demo/Fitting Day Event Thursday 5/3 3:30-6:30 at Independence GC

Just a friendly reminder that our big annual fitting day event is just around the corner. We will follow up soon with pre-registration slots which sell out early every year.  This is a great event and not your typical “demo day” where you have to stand behind a bunch of tire-kickers beating free range balls just to pass the time. We are excited to have all new quality range balls and will be following up in the coming weeks with additional specials and discounts.

Register Here for Limited Private Fitting Sessions (please let us know what vendor and what equipment you are interested in so that we can allocate enough time).

Ping G400 LST (Low Spin) – Most Wanted Driver for 2018 – My Golf Spy independent testing and Tour results

Ping G400 LST (Low Spin) – Most Wanted Driver for 2018 – My Golf Spy independent testing and Tour results

Per the Ping Tour News 3/26/18

“The noted website MyGolfSpy.com has named the G400 LST the Most Wanted Driver of 2018, and it is also the #1 PING model in tour pros’ bags. In extensive testing, the model was #1 in strokes gained, and its strong performance in distance, accuracy and other key variables contributed to the driver’s #1 overall rating. Out on tour, it is the most wanted PING driver. Last week the G400 LST was the most-played PING model on the PGA Tour (12), the Web.com (15), and the LPGA (10).

We here at Hodson Golf, continue to find the Ping LST to be the most forgiving of all the Low Spin drivers currently out there. We have always found that most of the competitors low-spin drivers (although they do produce lower spin) tend to have a greater dispersion on the mis-hits or simply don’t go as far and/or lower smash-factors.

Hodson Golf welcomes Kelly Hall and KM Golf to our fitting staff

Hodson Golf welcomes Kelly Hall and KM Golf to our fitting staff

I have known Kelly for many years and we all here at Hodson Golf are excited to have him on-board as a staff fitter. Kelly has just completed a state of the art indoor fitting/teaching studio at Independence. Being able to utilize our unique and extensive fitting system, along with his state of the art launch monitor (both indoors and outside on the range), will allow Kelly to continue our tradition of a professional and thorough custom fitting. Due to Kelly’s busy schedule with teaching,  he will have limited availability for fitting so please contact us to schedule a private session with Kelly at Independence Golf Club.

About Kelly Hall

A Class “A” Professional for over 20 years, Kelly has spent time in Pennsylvania, New York, Virginia and Florida during his career.  He has worked at public, resort and private facilities, giving him a wealth of experience and knowledge due to the differences of each type of property and location.  He brings the best of those experiences to Independence along with fresh ideas for where the game is going in the future.

A Pennsylvania native, Kelly began his golf life playing around the yard to homemade “greens” with only a 9 iron.  His first job was at the local public course in the bag room cleaning clubs and carts.  Were it not for John Kulhamer, his first pro and boss, he would not be a pro today.  Fast forward over 30 years and you can now see the culmination of a love of the game, a desire to help others and a wealth of experience in one glance of his eyes.  25 plus years of teaching have made those eyes keen and taught him a lot about how people learn.  But today’s golf industry is much different than those early days, so to be relevant, you have to evolve with your clients.  Kelly has stayed current with today’s industry and offers video analysis, non-traditional learning environments and on course evaluations.

He is also a Titleist Performance Institute Certified Instructor.  The TPI Certification program is an evidence based, educational pathway designed to teach industry professionals how to increase player performance through a deep understanding of how the body functions during the golf swing.  This concept is called the Body-Swing Connection™.

Pre-Season Grip Event 3/12/18 – Does the proper grip matter? Get A Grip (Literally)

Pre-Season Grip Event 3/12/18 – Does the proper grip matter? Get A Grip (Literally)

Of all the people we deal with every year, it never ceases to amaze me how the vast majority of golfers view one of the most fundamentally important aspects of their equipment as just a grip. The grip is where your body meets the club and an ill-properly fit grip WILL result in an ill-properly struck ball. Hodson Golf will be hosting a grip event at our Tour Trailer at Independence Golf Club next Monday 3/12/18 from 3:30-6:00.

About Andrew Hodson

I am the youngest with in a golfing family which has spanned three generations. My grandfather started the tradition in England (Bert Hodson-1931 Ryder Cup Team) and has since passed on his knowledge and love of the game. Although I did not follow in the steps of my father and grandfather on a professional golfing level, my love of the game and commitment to accurately fit equipment has only grown. Even as a kid I enjoyed re-gripping clubs which eventually led to refinishing wood heads, re-shafting, and now has culminated in more detailed custom club fitting, building, and repair.

Get M.A.D and get Even…..Longer

Get M.A.D and get Even…..Longer

We are excited to announce the new release (to dealer clubmakers only) of Graphite Design’s latest M.A.D. (Maximum Accuracy & Distance). This one will still incorporate the Torayca T1100G material technology that can also be found in the high end Tour AD IZ, TP, GP and M9003 shaft models but at a great price point. For all of those who have been scared off because of the high $$$ of graphite design shafts look no further….than Hodson Golf. We will keep you posted later this month when we have these bad boys in our demo lineup.

The team in the R&D lab at Graphite Design Japan went all out when designing the new Graphite Design MAD wood shafts. A challenge was issued to them to design a shaft that would alleviate the ill-fated golf ball flight issues that results in a lack of Maximum Accuracy and Distance. Accepting the challenge, they went to work in an effort to develop a cure.

The new Graphite Design MAD shaft is their response. Available in two strengths, the Graphite Design MAD Standard strength wood shafts are available in a 45g A and R Flex, 55g R and S Flex, 65g R and S Flex and a 70g S Flex and is designed for the intermediate to advance players.

The Graphite Design MAD PRO strength wood shafts are available in 65g S and X Flex and 75g X Flex and is designed for the advanced to professional players with higher swing speeds.

Make an appointment with your local professional golf club fitter and request that he write you a prescription for a new Graphite Design MAD shaft to cure your ball flight issues that may be holding you back from achieving Maximum Accuracy and Distance.
