Answer a few quick questions to get started with David
Representing for SeeMore Putters at The Nike Golf School of Williams College
  • David Freeston

    I grew up in Connecticut, playing golf for most of my life. It wasn’t until I was 10 years old and I hit that “perfect shot” and I said to myself, “That felt amazing, I can’t wait to do that again”. From there my obsession only grew. Once I entered high school, I got a job at our local course, Newtown Country Club, in the pro shop. I worked there for 4 years learning the ins and outs of the country club world, eventually becoming the Varsity Captain of my high school golf team.

    I enrolled in the Nike Golf School at Williamstown College every Summer until I was 16 years old which was the age limit at the time. I received the MVP and Coaches award numerous times as a student there, and upon graduation from my last year, I was asked by the camp director to come to work for them the following Summer. Normally, the minimum requirement to be an instructor is 18, but he saw so much promise in me that I was allowed to start a year early at 17, as a Counselor in Training. I am now 32 and have been an instructor (now head instructor) there every Summer since, helping kids between the ages of 10-16 learn, grow, and excel in the game of golf. We teach everything from the fundamentals to mental game to long term growth and very specific swing mechanics. The director who hired me has been my boss and mentor since I’ve been learning the game, world renowned sports psychologist and acclaimed Golf Channel contributor Dr. Robert K. Winters. In the interim, I have caddied for many fellow golfers in qualifiers for the PGA, LPGA and Symetra tours, as well as State and Club Championships. I have over 20 years experience in the game and have seen it from so many angles. I love learning more about it everyday.

    Golf is my passion, so let's work together to help make it yours too! I'm your guy for any fundamental, swing, and equipment advice. Look forward to chatting!

    David Was Great To Work With
    David took all of my questions and inputs and quickly matched me up with multiple options. While I neither picked the cheapest nor the most expensive, I ultimately settled on the best value. From the time I first was presented with the offer until I was ready to buy, there was a price reduction on a different website and David matched it instantly. I will definitely recommend both CURATED and David to anyone I know who is looking for golf clubs!!

    Best Golf Shopping Experience Hands Down
    Shopping for golf clubs can be overwhelming.... There are all these brands saying they are the best for this, that, and the other thing. But can you really believe them? Companies will tell you whatever they need to sell their product. This is why I was so impressed with curated. I was recommended to this website by a friend that was curious what results I got. I logged on to the website to do some research for a future purchase and was pleasantly surprised with just how easy it all was. I answered a few very easy questions about my average score, distance/power I have, and what I would be comfortable spending on a new set of clubs. Then the biggest surprise happened.... I spoke (via text and email) to an ACTUAL person and not a computer system. He messaged back with me about what I was looking for in new clubs and what my goals were and within a minute, he sent me multiple options of what would fit my recommendations and more importantly, my price range. Each option had its perks and his special recommendation of why this is a great set and how it would help my golf game. Then when I told him I was only doing research for a future purchase, he was not pushy at all to try and get a sale. What a relief.... Overall this was the best golf shopping experience that I have ever had and when I do decide its time to upgrade the hand me down clubs I have now, I will be definitely be coming back here! 10/10 would recommend and recommend to my friends and family!

    David is PHENOMENAL!
    He was incredibly easy to work with. He answered all of my questions, didn’t rush me, and made recommendations based on what I was looking for. He’s a wealth of knowledge and I felt extremely well taken care of. If you’re lucky enough to work with David, I can promise you, you’re in great hands. I would absolutely recommend David to any and everyone looking for new clubs!

    One of the best customer service experiences I've had
    I decided this was going to be the year I made a big investment in my golf game, and I am so glad I went with Curated and got paired up with Dave. He's an absolute gem. I got fitted locally, I was able to give him my specs, and he found me exactly what I needed at the best price available out there, PLUS the 10% discount on my first Curated purchase. Big purchase, big savings. Dave goes above and beyond -- he was working nights and weekends to put together recommendations and alternate options for me, was always available to message me back when I had a question, never pressured me in the least to make a purchase, and on top of that, is a funny, down to earth guy who's a pleasure to work with. I can't imagine making another custom club purchase anywhere else now. Last thing: my new irons and driver came quicker than expected, and my bag is tight AF now. Thanks Dave!

    Awesome experience dealing with David.
    David is totally courteous and professional. Not one of those high pressure sales jerks. He did all the research and found the best fit for me. I'm new to golfing and suck, but getting better. Needed some irons that are forgiving on my miss hits. David located the clubs and was patient and understanding with my other shortcomings, hahaha I'm a plumber and not real savvy with the online stuff. Thanks alot David.

    Professional and Attentive
    I told David what I was looking for and my specs regrading the clubs I was looking to get. He not only took the time to help me with some things I was mistaken on, but helped point me in the direction of clubs which will hold up the test of time for awhile as being fit for my game. Outstanding service and highly recommend David! Thanks again!

    David was awesome!!
    He listened to what I was looking for and gave me many options with descriptions on why he chose them in addition to different price/quality tiers! He truly was a pleasure to work with and I am pumped to give my new Scotty Cameron putter a go! Thank you so much again for the awesome kind service :)

    Awesome experience!
    David was awesome! Super knowledgeable and personable. Never once tried to pressure me to buy something, just gave his recommendations and opinions. Once I did purchase a new iron set he was able to get me a great deal (easily $200 less then the quote at the club fitter). David and Curated will be my only place to buy golf equipment! Thanks David!

    David Knows His Stuff
    I was looking for a new golf bag and I had a couple specifics on price range and features. David provided me with a range of options that each hit the nail on the head. He then took the time to walk me through each bag’s strengths so I could make the best decision. I’ll definitely be working with David again soon!

    David pointed me in the right direction.
    For people looking to get some new clubs but don’t have the time to shop around, jump on here and let the pros do it for you. David was very knowledgeable and even better, not a robot. We cut jokes and talked golf to narrow down what fit me best. He was extremely helpful as their are a lot of clubs out there that don’t fit my swing. I’ll be back!
