PETE”S GOLF SURPASSES 75,000 FITTINGS:
We pride ourselves on doing the best we can for every golfer who comes through our door. After completing over 75,000 fittings in our 30 + years, we began asking you for feedback about your fitting experience to see how we are doing. We could not be happier with the results. We just surpassed 700 reviews on our web site. Thanks to all of you, who have taken the time to review us.
OUR MAJORS POOL:
Thanks also for the over 3500 entries we received for this year’s majors pools. We plan on running them again next year. If you have any input on how we can improve them, please drop us a note.
Practical Golf Launched
Our friends at Practical Golf have just launched an online membership program for golfers, that we think you’ll love. They’ve created a great library of content from a number of respected teachers, and arranged exclusive discounts from some top golf companies. We have helped Practical Golf do a few equipment reviews and find their honest take on golf to be a breath of fresh air. To find out more you can visit their site here.
There are only a few companies in the world that manufacture steel shafts, so it’s rare when a new one comes along. Graphite shaft manufacturer Oban recently took a new innovative design to the shaft maker Shimada. Shimada a steel manufacturer has had very little available in the US before Oban started working with them. With Oban getting Shimada to produce the shafts, Oban Steel was born.
Oban took a different approach with its design, using 12 different length blanks, giving us more flexibility in fitting a golfer for the correct flex. So far we have found it to be the smoothest feeling steel shaft we have seen. The super high quality of Shimada gives it the best consistency thoughout the set. Its mid weight of 115 grams, fits perfectly for the player who needs a stable mid weight shaft. With the 12 blank system, each shaft has been designed and manufactured for its specific length that leads to uniformity throughout the set. We have already had good success with it and plan to add it to all of our fitting systems soon.

Business Golf: Your Key to Business Success Through Golf can help golfers and non-golfers alike — business individuals, from those who have never played to those with years of experience. Whether you are just getting started in business or you are a successful CEO, this book will show you what you can be doing better during your next business golf round.
As the publisher of a golf magazine, John gets to experience golf, in some form or another, every day. This includes writing about golf, reading about golf, talking about golf, and most importantly, playing golf. To John, golf is more than just a game. It’s one of the best business tools you can utilize on your way to the top.
Over time, I’ve learned more and more about the finer aspects of the sport, the history of the game, and the impact it has on so many people and businesses around the world. As he experiences the game, his passion for it grows. Golf is an important part of so many lives let it be a part of yours.
John grew up on Long Island just a few miles away from the now famous Bethpage Black golf course, the site of the 2002 and 2009 U.S. Opens. His first career was as a musician. After learning to play drums starting at the age of ten, John turned professional at 16. It was the start of a 20-year career. After years of playing and teaching, John pursued a real job with defense contractor Grumman Aerospace Corporation. It was there he realized how important business golf was to business success. After he fell in love with the game of golf, Long Island Golfer Magazine was born. He later went on, for 17 years, to publish Long Island Golfer Magazine which, as it expanded, changed its name to Golfing Magazine, a national golf magazine with an emphasis on targeting regional markets.
John still lives on Long Island, where he tries to get out on the 140 Long Island golf courses whenever he can.
If you would like to talk business, business golf, or just want to tell him about your last round, he’d like to hear from you. Please feel free to write him directly at:

All the attention this fall for the Titleist iron launch has been on the AP1 and AP2 irons, but our testing found the gem in their iron line to be the 716 T-MB. Chances are you will not see a lot of this club as it is going to be marketed as a long iron replacement. However in the Titleist MOTO shop (Made only to order) it’s also available in any set make up (2 iron- Gap wedge). It’s compact appearance puts it in the players club category, but its hollow construction, with tungsten weighting, makes it extremely stable on off center hits.
Single Length Irons – Passing Fad, or Here to Stay?
CHECK OUT the Parsons Xtreme (PXG) Irons Review: A Club Unlike Any Other
We have received many inquiries about PXG (Parsons Extreme Golf) this spring. Strictly on performance, they are some of the best irons we have tested. Our own Kirk Oguri was so impressed with the performance, that he signed onto PXG’s national staff this year. Here is an article that appeared in Practical Golf on PXG (with a little help from us).

Ping G Series Driver
Ping introduced the G series (woods, fairways, hybrids and irons) in February. While the entire G series is an improvement over the G30 line, the driver stands out as one of the most stable drivers we have tested, resulting in one of the straightest drivers available today. The improvements come from removing weight from the crown of the club. The ribs on the crown come from research Ping did on dragonfly wings. It allows them to remove weight without sacrificing strength. Removing weight from the crown is being done by many manufacturers using composite material. Many of the gains are reduced by the weight of the bonding material joining the composite to the titanium, putting the weight where it will help the most. They make three versions of the G series driver, the standard version, LS and SF Tech. All three work for slightly different players. They added an SF Tech option in the 3 and 5 woods, giving us a great option for the player who tends to leave the face open.
At the 2015 PGA Show Woody interviewed Bobby Grace who has been making and designing putters for over 30 years. When you have a few minutes you can pick up several great insights from this industry legend, here’s the link. www.youtube.com/embed/UXw091gJFzE?rel=0
We emphasize the importance of a putter fitting as the best way for us to help you lower your score.
We recently purchased a Quintic putter launch monitor which features high speed cameras. This helps us learn how putts roll after impact.
We are currently in an R & D phase with the Quintic Putting Monitor. Once we determine its benefits as part of a total putting fitting. we may incorporate it as part of the evaluation.
There is a lot of data to analyze so we need to do thorough research and our due diligence with it first.
If you have had a putter fitting with us and have interest in helping us do some research so we can compile data, please email Sonny@petesgolf.com us so we can schedule a time to help us test our latest technology acquisition.
