Quiet please. Important decisions being made.
Hey Ken. I want to thank you so much for the help. Rounds one and two are played and I could not be any happier with my new clubs. Was able to swing less, work on consistency, dropped about 9 stokes so far, compared to last year. Minus a nasty snowman on a par 4, my second round would have been only a 4 over. I moved back a tee box from last year. I can not wait to see what the end of the season scores will be. Thanks again for all your help.
For anyone that reads this, I totally recommend the Miles of Golf Staff.
Hi Bryan. I hope all is going well with you. Thank you for getting back to me so quickly with the driver specs. I appreciate your help. If I need anything in the future I will be coming to you because if your excellent customer service and knowledge of the game of golf and your expertise in club fitting. I've had a great experience with you and Miles over the past year and I look forward to continuing our business relationship. Thank you again for all your help. Take care Bryan!

Thank you for the great putter fitting on Tuesday (2 pm). It was a very good learning experience and the data on my stroke was invaluable. I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed it and I appreciated your professionalism throughout the process. I thought for sure, you would try to sell me a certain brand of putter, but that was not the case at all. Your goal was to find the best fit possible which I appreciated it!
When you get a chance, can you please e-mail me my analysis data?
Also, was Bettinardi able to customize the BB54 for lie and loft like you wanted? I know we were shooting for lower loft and an upright lie. What specs were they able to meet? I want to make sure they send the correct putter.
Again, I appreciate the help and the information.
Played indoor at Tee Box on Sunday..
Hit 10 of 14 fairways. The 4 I missed, I missed by literally inches!
251 average drive, 277 longest in fairway.
Typically been at 104 all winter there. Sunday’s score was 84 at Firestone. Holy Crap!!!
Thanks a million for taking the time to get me into that perfect fit R1 and again for last year’s fitting of the R11 irons! You Rock
A round of golf this summer is on me! Let me know when you want to go out and I’m buying!!!
Nice to be retired, played today and with the information and new putter I was very pleased with the results. Little windy and wet but managed my best putting performance of the year. Even the putts that missed were short but dead center. Only had one poor stroke which a putter can not fix.
Working on the alignment issue with a overhead string on carpet in basement. Thanks for your, I order couple of 6oz TaylorMade weights that should be here on Thursday.
The R1 is a driving machine and this putter has an excellent feel, and I stroke it well.
Just wanted to drop you a line to tell you how impressed I was with the fitting that Bryan did for me today. His information was right on and he let me ask whatever I needed to. He asked me several times if there was anything else that I needed or he could do for me. In this day and age of customer service he scored an ace! I have been in the customer service area for alot of years and have been quite successful at it so I know what it takes to make someone happy. With so many choices out there to spend your dollars you can bet that Miles of Golf will get mine. Please let him know that I was beyond a satisfied customer!!
Thank you for the best experience in golf I have ever had. You did an excellent job. I can look forward to a game of improved golf in the years to come.
Thanks for asking for feedback. I have nothing but praise for Miles of Golf and their staff. First of all - YOU!!! You are an inspiration!!! Not just to me, but to every woman (don't know any men) that has taken a lesson from you. I love your approach. Working with the person and not trying to do a complete alteration (especially at this age!!). I took my first lesson with you at age 60 and I am still so excited after one year!! I am golfing at least 4 times a week and having so much fun and using my new set of clubs (got them 3 days ago!!). Kenny was very helpful in fitting me for my new clubs and I think he helped me make all of the correct choices. Thanks to everyone at Miles of Golf - I appreciate the opportunity to have such a wonderful resource in my backyard.
I just want to take this opportunity to thank you and your staff for an excellent experience on Sunday during my fitting. Ken did a great job properly fitting me to a great putter and showing me how Miles of Golf is the leader when it comes to a proper fitting. Your facility and was top notch. It meet and exceeded my expectations from what my friends have told me. I will be back next year to get my driver and be passing the word along as well to anyone who is in the market to get proper fitting. BTW can you please have Ken email me my report from Sundays for my records.
Thanks again. John Murphy
For several years now, the facilities and staff at Miles of Golf have helped our men’s golf team at the University of Michigan in several ways. We’ve utilized the winter practice facilities to prepare for early spring competition, relied on the staff’s knowledge of and recommendations for important products and equipment, counted on their dependable club repair services, and trusted their nationally-recognized club fitters to evaluate our players for the best possible set makeup. They have been instrumental in our team and individual success –including two top-10 finishes at the NCAA Championship in the past three years.
Miles has separated itself as a leader in promoting, supporting, understanding, and teaching golf in Southeast Michigan and we’re lucky to have them as a team partner. I recommend Miles of Golf to my fellow coaches and am happy to discuss our team experiences.

Just a short note to say how much I appreciate the people at Miles of Golf. When I have questions about equipment and other golf related items, the staff has always treated me (a senior golfer) as an important customer and demonstrated a sincere interest in helping me get the equipment I need. Keep up the good work as I enjoy shopping in your store and taking advantage of your many services. I really regret that I did not start playing golf until I was 63 as I continue to discovered what a great game it is.
I want to thank you for setting up my club fitting with Alan Dante. He was a great! Alan was very knowledgeable and easy to talk too. I was amazed that Alan was building clubs that might fit my swing/game right there in front of me and I was able to use them and get the feedback right away. The club and shaft selections seemed endless. I feel like I have thrown my money away in the past on clubs that didn't fit me or my game. I will never buy another club without getting fit for them first again. I can't wait to get my new clubs and get out on the course. Thanks again.
Thanks Alan, you did a great job,I think you guys should put an ad in the windsor star in the spring and fall to advertise your sevices and the trackman hi tech state of the art ball flight and shaft analyzer , for the golfer who wants the same launch angle ,spin rate analysis,and landing angles of the pros, and the true visual ball flight all at the same time.There are 220,000 people in windsor and 300,000 in essex county who do not have these state of the art golf facts available for all major manufacturers at their fingertips. You may wish to advertise in the clubhouses of our best private clubs essex g&cc,beach grove golf &cc,and ambassador.....warmest regards tom reiha
Hi Bryan, Wow !!! I will be telling all my friends, family or anyone
else that plays golf, that the way to go is to get fitted for clubs,
especially the driver. I didn't miss a fairway and my drives were 30 -
40 yards longer than my buddies who were out driving me just a few
weeks ago. It took a few holes before they realized I had a new driver. Then came all the questions. Played Pierce Lake. Shot 77 from the gold tees. Thanks for all your help !!! I'm off to the short range area....

Thank you for taking so much time to fit me with a new driver, your knowledge, and especially you patience level, are great. Additionally I extend great appreciation for the courtesy you extended to Ron, the cancer patient who accompanied me. While he left Miles of Golf impressed with the facility, the treatment he received from you and those he encountered in the showroom was the main topic of conversation on our way home. I’m sure that once he has completed his treatment and regained his strength, you will see both he and his son for a fitting.
I’m hoping to get there in a couple of weeks to try again to get fitted for the fairway metals, I just ran out of gas Thursday.
Again, thank you.
I love Miles of Golf! With my lessons from Sandy Wagner, my club fitting with Ken Johns and my new Cobra 5W, I was able to get a hole in 1 yesterday!!!
I just wanted to say thank you to all the staff that helped me, but especially Jim who fitted me with my new Adams V3 Tech irons. I love them. They look great! But, most importantly, I'm hitting good shots with them. And, also a big thanks to Ken who did a putter fitting with me and helped me pick out a new Ghost putter. Putting has improved and I have confidence that I have the right putter for me. Thanks again to all! You're the best!
Yesterday @ your shop, I purchased the $400 Trackman/Players' Club "special" for Mason for a Xmas present. I never in my life have received a Xmas present that spectacular, that's for sure. Thank you for offering this. Mason hadn't spent any time on Trackman, but Brent set him up yesterday w/ passwords, etc. and Mason loved it. Might be the perfect tool at this point for the effort Mason is putting in to improve his game. Also, another big, heartfelt thank you. My son Graham wanted to go to the EMU basketball game yesterday. On the way to the game, I remembered you, a couple of years ago now, generously offering me a fistful of EMU basketball tickets which I was unable to use at the time. I called MOG yesterday, Brent answered the phone, and he said there were all sorts of EMU hoops tickets behind the counter and to come in and grab two, which Graham and I did.
Thank you so much.
My 3+ decade career working @ Borders Corporate HQ instilled in me the power of supreme customer service (though Borders no longer possesses that commitment, unfortunately). One reason I've always felt so comfortable @ MOG and been proud to see Mason grow up there in many ways is MOG's deep-rooted commitment and comfort in providing top-drawer customer service. I credit you w/ an important piece of that ambiance, commitment.
Thanks again for all, Doug.
Best, Robin Wagner
I would like to thank the staff at MOG for all their assistance this past weekend. I have been coming out to Ypsilanti from Central Pa. for the last 14 years to visit my daughter and did not realize how much technology and professional knowledge was available at your shop. On Sunday, I was fitted to a driver by Alan and according to Trackman, I was able to pick up 20 yds of carry and 20 yds of roll. I took the driver out in the real world last night, at my home course here in Central Pennsylvania (Emporium Country Club) and except for a few mistakes by the dumb end (myself) of the club, I could not be happier. I have never been fitted for a driver before and I see what a huge difference it can make and I was most impressed by how accurate of a decision Alan had made picking out a driver (R9 SuperDeep) just by watching my ball flight. Once on the launch monitor, only one more adjustment needed to be made. I will be making the 5 hour drive shortly to have my 3 and 5 woods fitted to my swing and possibly a couple of hybrids.
I have twin 14 year old boys who just received their Titleist 910D3 drivers. We were fit on the Trackman in Ann Arbor, MI. What a great experience. Each son spent an hour on the Trackman trying different shafts and settings to see what worked best for them. When the fitting was complete, our curiousity was peaked as we waited for the driver. The following were the specs for each son:
Setting was 8.5 910D3, A-1 (neutral) Project X - 7C3, 73G-6.0 Tip-Stiff
Setting was 9.5 910D3, B-1 (a bit closed) Diamana 65 Mid Stiff
While they are twins, each swing and style are totally different. My hat is off to Brent Norton who did our fitting. Not only does it appear the selected shafts are correct for each player, I find it amazing that the face settings that were defined during the fitting were so accurate. Especially the setting of B-1, that son's ball trajectory started a bit more right than his R-9. Biggest difference I see is that Titleist Drivers are about a half of a degree open where most other drivers are biased to the closed side. When Brent adjusted the face, the direction off the Tee was exactly where he aimed with a slight draw and he did it over and over. The other son has been playing Titleist since he was first fit. He is replacing a 909D3 which he hit incredeibly well with the 910D3.
I am extremely pleased with Titleist equipment and golf balls. One son has played Titleist equipment for the past 3 years and is ranked 25th in the class of 2014 by Junior Golf Scoreboard. The other is ranked quite high as well and is now converting to Titleist equipment. I was a big TM fan. I let my kids select what equipment they wanted. I am now a HUGE Titleist fan and wherever golf takes my sons, you can bet Titleist will be in their bags. Please know, I am telling parents I run into about how good this experience has been.
Thanks again for a great experience.
Brandon, thank you for the reply. What a professional you are, how lucky I am that we have connected and you are guiding me thru this process. I understand your thoughts on reshafting the r580xd, accept your recommendations and this is no longer a consideration. Next I trust your judgement regarding a second fitting, if you believe that we will not improve upon the results we have found with the Rapture driver then I will not pursue another appointment. As for the length of the shaft I think it makes sense to play the club first as you suggest and then determine what,if at all I may want to do with trimming the club 1/2 to 3/4 inches. So looking forward I will make the time to practice with the club at your office,when you are available, and use some impact tape. Then you could offer me some advice about shortening the club, if we should, and to what length. I am traveling out of town shortly and will be back Monday morning. I will plan to call you and make arrangements to purchase the club.
Thank you again for your service.
Chris, Long time since we have connected but I just wanted to tell you what a wonderful first time experience I had at your place. I went down with my dad and had a two hour fitting with Brent Norton. What a nice guy and a great experience. I must say I have had many fittings in my life including Hot Stix and Cool Clubs and I would rate my experience today as the best. I actually plan to return in early next year when Titleist has the new ultra light weight shafts available for their new drivers and fairway woods. Hope all is well with you and your family. Hope to see you back up at the Downs next year.
I just want to say thanks for a great day to you and all the staff at Miles of Golf. Please pass on the appreciation from all of the class to Shawn, Ken and Pete as well. It was a great day and the students could not stop talking about it at lunch after our departure. To have the opportunity to expose them to a world class facility like Miles of Golf will prove to be invaluable to their educational experience and their future. I also want to say thank you personally for your time and continued support. I am hoping to come see you for some personal work on my own game during the week of March 15th - March 19th. As a matter of fact, I know I could come over on Tuesday March 16th any time in the morning if you can accommodate me for some time. Just let me know and I will be there.
One more time - Thanks again and I hope to possibly see you again on March 16th if you can fit me in.

I went through the putter Maxx fitting several weeks ago and you ask me to send you an email and give you my opinion of the putter and the fitting process. I am happy to advise you that my putting has improved dramatically. I purchased the Ping D066, Redwood Series, putter and I also purchased a TaylorMade Burner driver, 3-wood and 3 utility at the same time.
I am extremely happy with everything I purchased, but the biggest improvement in my game is the putting. I now have a putter that "fits". My putting has always been the weakest part of my game. It is now the strongest part of my game. Your instruction and visually identifying my tendencies on the analyzer made a huge difference in my approach to putting.
I can only think of one thing you might want to improve. You seemed slightly reluctant to turn the fitting into a putting "lesson". I don't think you should be concerned with that. The things that we talked about during the fitting helped me as much as the actual fitting. It was obvious that you have a lot to offer instruction wise. I would have been willing to pay for a lesson and the fitting. Maybe Miles of Golf should offer the fitting at one price and throw in the lesson for a slightly higher price. You spent a great deal of time with me and I truly appreciate your help and expertise. I live in Jackson, but you have gained a new customer. I have sent several people your way and they have also been happy with your shop. Keep up the good work!
I just wanted to relate what a wonderful experience I had with
Brandon. He spent the time with me to get me the right new clubs. And
even took the time to prove to me that these were the best clubs for
me. Can't say enough.
Brent, Yesterday, on Saturday, May 19th a gentleman named Brian Thompson came into Miles of Golf looking for new clubs. He is left handed and we were able to accomodate him in the cluboratory. Mr. Thompson told myself and Chris Dewulf that he went to two other golf stores and not a single person waited on him. He told us that he walked around store 1 for 25 minutes and no one even said hello to him. At store 2, he was just given clubs and sent to the range, and the clubs they gave him were designed to do the opposite of what he wanted. Mr. Thompson ended up placing an order with us for Nike CCI Irons and a couple of TaylorMade Draw hybrids. He wanted to commend us on the outstanding customer service, he is a customer that will definitely come back in the future. I thought you would like to know that our customer service is worlds better than our nearest competitors. If you have any questions please ask. Thanks.
