Golf Expert Alan Hammond
  • Alan Hammond

    I took up golf at age 17 and it has been a passion of mine ever since. Over the years, I've been a competitive amateur golfer, pro shop manager, golf club vice-president and board member, golf writer (the highlight being when my work appeared on GolfChannel.com), and golf equipment reviewer.

    This game of ours is magnificent. It has so many lessons to teach both young and old. I look forward to helping others find their best game.

    Awesome experience
    As a senior golfer, I was looking to get back some length lost from age and a six year old driver that seemingly was out of touch with today's technology. After several messages back and forth, which included many questions, answers, suggestions and even measurements, Alan gave me four excellent choices to choose from. It truly was an awesome experience!

    Alan is the man!
    As someone who is new to the sport, I was having difficulty trying to find a set of irons that was right for me at a reasonable cost. Not only did Alan provide me with several options to choose from but he helped me find great deals on all of them. He did not try to push a certain set, and was very honest when it came to the pros/cons of each. I decided to go with the TaylorMade M6 iron set, and I couldn’t love them more! They are just what I was looking for in a set of irons, and like I said, Alan helped me find a great deal on these!

    I suggest everyone to work with Alan!!
    Alan did a phenomenal job at helping me find a new golf iron set. Going in, I didn’t even know what I wanted and he had asked all the right questions. I ended up purchasing one of Alan’s recommendations and I feel extremely confident they will be perfect for my game. In addition to this, Alan was very friendly and made the process super easy and enjoyable. If you don’t know what you need and want someone who will take your interests at hand, this is your guy!

    Genuine Expert Service
    Alan is truly very knowledgeable about golf equipment. He effectively tailored his recommendations to my specific requests while also providing additional options. His explanations were easy to understand. I bought one of his choices but it's important to note that not once did I ever feel pressured or obligated to buy anything. I'm happily continuing our conversation for other golf equipment for my family.

    A few minutes with Alan was really worth it
    I didn’t know what to expect, but within a few minutes, I knew I was talking to someone that was listening, and not pushing. It became evident he knew his stuff, and considered things for me that I had not thought about, or knew. He was great to work with.

    Awesome Support
    I really did not know what I was looking for. I told Alan how often I golfed and some of my thoughts and he directed me into clubs that I had already done research on and knew were quality. I found some that he had not suggested and after talking and him looking into them he thought they were great for me. I also got a killer deal thanks to Curated. From a beginner/novice golfer perspective, things can be overwhelming and if you go to a local store I feel like they may try to sell you something more expensive. This was not the case here and he even checked on me post Hurricane to see if we were good from the storm. That is the customer service that will get me going back in the future and why I did not try to find the same price somewhere else. Can't wait for my clubs to come in!

    Very helpful and honest. I felt like he really wanted to help me get the best club set up for my playing level.
    Gave me lots of options and I feel he was able to find me what I needed. I will update when I get my clubs and start playing with them.
