Putter Fitting with James Swantko
TLDR: Get a putter fitting at Club Champion from James Swantko. It's worth it.
Recently, I have been struggling with my putter which happens to be the only part of my game that I did not get fitted to my specs. I was going back and forth if a putter fitting was worth it or not. With the amount of "great" putters there are available out there on the online, I had no clue which one would suit my stroke and game. The deciding factor for me to go get fit at CC versus a big box store or just ordering one online was Club Champion's SAM Putting Lab. Now to my fitter, James Swantko is the man! It's just that simple. He went above and beyond and provided me with everything I could ever have asked. His knowledge about golf, the player, and the clubs were second to none. He was a former golf coach and that really was a big help for someone who has never had a putter lesson before. The first 5-10 minutes of the fitting revolved around my current gamer putter and the things I liked and did not like about it. James hooked up my gamer putter to the SAM Putt Lab and I hit 7 putts. The SAM Putt Lab generated a report and the details were extensive. It gave recommendations for putter length, grip size, offset, etc. From there, James gave me around 15-20 putters(they have absolutely every putter you would want there from Scotty Cameron and Bettinardi to Sik and L.A.B) to try based off the report and his gut feeling. I narrowed down the field to about 4 putters. James then made the remaining 4 to my specs and hooked me back up the SAM Putt Lab. The results feel wise and legitimate data were incredible. I was not making any changes or manipulations to my normal stroke that I used for my gamer. It came down to an Evnroll and a Bettinardi. I clearly had better results with the Evnroll, but I just loved the look of the Bettinardi putter. I asked James, if there was anyway we could make some adjustments to the Bettinardi where it could perform similarly with the Evnroll and he confirmed. James really knew how much I was leaning towards one putter and was willing to put in the extra work to get me what I wanted. He made the necessary adjustments and got me to where the Evnroll and Bettinardi putter were neck-and-neck. I walked out of Club Champion with the Bettinardi and I could not have been happier. For my next fitting (maybe woods), I will absolutely be going back to Club Champion and using James again.
