BOZEMAN -The driving range at Bridger Creek Golf Course is packed with golfers, all getting a chance to try out brand new clubs because no less than 7 major golf club manufacturers were on hand to show off their latest innovations.

Ping, Titleist, Taylor Made, Callaway, Mizuno, and Cobra, all had experts on hand to watch your swing, and then recommend the perfect club length and design.

The demonstration was greeted with mixed results. Here’s what some of the golfers reported: “Love ‘Em. Psychologically it makes me feel better. I don’t know that in reality it’s helping a whole lot.”

“It’s making my drives go a lot farther.”

“Just hitting farther.”

“Just trying them out right now but I just got new wedges and they seem to be helping so far, I guess.”

“I’m hoping they’re helping me but so far, I don’t know.”

“It’s definitely helping me today. How? It’s straightened out my shot a little bit. and getting fitted has been definitely helpful.”

But really, can custom built clubs really make that big a difference in your game? According to Bridger Creek’s Director of Golf, Mark Holiday, it can. “Well you get the length right. You get the weight right. You get the flex right. and it just fits your swing a lot better and you hit it further, and you hit it straighter.”
