    I started working in golf clubs at age 15 and went to Professional Golf Management school in college to become a golf pro. I decided instead to get into golf equipment rather than becoming a pro as equipment was always my biggest passion.

    I am considered one of the worlds top golf club fitters. I started high end golf club company Scratch Golf Clubs in 2003 right out of college. I have fit thousands of players including multiple Tour Pros for clubs. Clubs I've fit have won on major professional tours and have been used by major championship winners. A wedge I fit is in the champions club display from The Masters at Augusta National. I personally worked with the #1 player on the LPGA Tour for a number of years while she was #1. I also founded National Custom Works, a high end maker of hand made golf clubs. In addition I am one of two original founders of Sweetens Cove Golf Club in South Pittsburg, TN. I also rate golf courses for a major golf magazine.

    I am also personally obsessed with golf. I play as much as I can. I have traveled the world playing the world's best courses. I especially love spending time in Scotland. Golf (along with my family) is my life, my profession and my hobby.

    Absolutely love Ari! He has so much golf knowledge that he was willing to share about products and the game as whole. Never pressuring me to buy before I was ready or pushing the most expensive products; instead he really looked to find the right product for ME! His willingness to answer all my questions made me sure that I'm getting the right gear! Really appreciate all his help! HIGHLY RECOMMEND ARI!!!

    Ari is great!
    From the start I could tell Ari was going to have some great insight on getting me set up with a new set of clubs that would be best for me. He was polite, funny, and honest. He wasn’t pushy or acted like I was just another guy who has no idea what he wanted. He took his time, basically all day considering I was at work, and he helped me out when it came to staying within my budget. Couldn’t have asked for a better experience. I will be back to do more business with Ari and will definitely be telling my friends to come and talk with Ari about anything golf related they may need. Hats off to Ari, may his ball fly straight and his greens be always tilted in his favor!

    Ari was more than helpful. He was patient and kind. I know he’s busy helping others but was super understanding in dealing with my shenanigans all day long. Great guy! I look forward to great days on the course with the clubs he suggested for me and I’ll definitely be coming back to him with my business.

    Ari was outstanding which was the main reason I went with Curated
    From minute one, Ari question my mediocre golf game, he made sure that the clubs he recommended were suited to my game. He also assured me that once my game improved and if I want to upgrade my clubs, he could make that happen.

    Ari was great and so helpful! Helped me multiple times through the pros was when I was hesitant but was there to help whenever I needed it. Eventually when I was ready he was there to provide me with great options and helped me pick out the clubs I wanted. Excited to get these in and play a round!

    Ari was most helpful and had advice that helped me decide the needs to my purchase. Your website and ease of purchase was the best i've seen, and I'll be back for more and all my friends in need of golf gear will be informed of Curated

    Buying golf clubs is a big investment. I had some ideas about what I wanted, but have a professional help with confirming some choices and suggesting some alternatives was very valuable. Ari did a great job sharing his insights.

    Ari was awesome!
    Working with Ari was great! I was looking for a set of golf clubs for my son and Ari found the perfect set! The process took several months since I never followed through with the first options sent. However, Ari stayed in touch over the course of those several months (never pushy!) and reached out on Cyber Monday to remind me of some awesome sales that were happening! Between our initial conversations and the latest, my son grew and needed different options. Ari was super quick and happy to get back to me with new ones! I was able to find the perfect set and saved $100 on them!! He also went above and beyond to assure me that he would make sure my $40 in insider money credit would be put into my account when I didn’t see it in there. My brother in law is a golf pro and I will absolutely be reaching out to him to let him know Ari is a great contact for his clients looking for golf gear!

    The experience was great. The biggest challenge with something like this is the potential for back and forth shipping if something doesn’t work out. Living in a large city, I can go to a pro shop and hit many clubs and settle on what feels best without the hassle of a back and forth situation with added spending on shipping
