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.

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).
