    Golf has been a huge part of my life since I landed my first job at age 10 – picking up balls by hand at 6 am for $1 per bucket.

    In high school, I was thrilled to earn a substantial $7/hr raise when I began working for New England’s top-grossing golf retailer. Eventually, my knowledge of the game allowed me to work my way up from being a stock boy and regripper to being a top salesman for the company.

    I’ve been lucky enough to enjoy the sport from a variety of perspectives, including as a player, manager, owner/operator, buyer, and club technician. As a certified Trackman and Mizuno/Titleist fitter, I particularly love helping other players to find their ideal clubs and have seen the difference a good fitting can make.

    I know how tricky it can be to navigate the vast sea of brands and products out there. Looking to take some strokes off your game? Let’s chat!

    Eric was incredible. A phenomenal experience from start to finish
    Getting into golf as a beginner can be incredibly daunting. Eric made the process incredibly easy and stress free. He was able to help me understand what I need, how things work, and he wasn't looking to pull the retail move an charge me exorbitant prices for things I might not even need. Highly recommend, and not just for beginners. Compare the prices online yourself and you'll see that you're getting a personable experience without the $$$ usually associated

    Great experience
    Contacted Curated looking for the right golf clubs for me. Got paired up with Eric and from the very beginning he was patient and listened to everything I was looking for. He recommended several iron sets and from there we went into a lot more detail about my game, age, height, reach and all the important things about golf clubs and what different types of clubs could do for my game. We narrowed it down to 2 sets and agreed that the Calaway Mavrik's would be the best for me. Not only did he help me with my clubs he also helped me pick a set for my wife. He was awesome, knowledgeable and great to work with. I got a great deal and can't wait to get the clubs and go play golf with the wife. Eric and Curated thank you very much for a great buying experience.

    Great Experience!!
    Eric was very helpful in getting me a set if clubs that matched my personal needs. He put together a few different options for me to look at, which I appreciated as it gave some comparison. Once I picked the clubs that I wanted, he went above and beyond to help me, as I was in the process of moving across the country at the time, and offered to have the clubs sent to his place, and then forward them onto me when I reached my new apartment, so that I could capitalize on the sale prices that were currently available. It’s now two weeks on since I’ve had the clubs and I couldn’t be happier with the set! Highly recommend working with this man!!

    Doug's experience with Eric
    Texting with an actual expert (Eric) on preferences and availability was a fantastic online experience. Eric was responsive and honest about the condition of the pre-owned clubs, as well as suggestions given the information that I provided. He was truly an expert in club selection.

    Eric was a huge help and broke down everything perfectly
    Eric was a huge help to all the questions I had for pretty much every club in the bag. He had thoughtful answers and did not have a bias toward any certain club or brand. I came in with a few things in mind and we talked through every situation and what would be best. I recommend you speak with Eric and get his recommendations!

    Eric is honest and informative
    Eric talked to me about the options that I liked. Though he could have updokd me to a much more expensive set that I asked about he told me the pros and cons and how the less expensive set would fit my game better. I appreciate that.

    Very knowledgeable, cool guy
    I have been looking to upgrade my iron set as I have really started playing more this year and have been using a very basic beginner set. Eric was great to speak with. He knew his stuff and helped me feel confident about getting the M2 iron set and a new Cleveland putter. On top of that, he went above and beyond helping to get my order processed and out as quickly as possible. Which is a huge help as I have a golf trip next week and would love to try to get a feel for the clubs beforehand. Will definitely be back when I am looking to upgrade my 3 wood and hybrids. Thanks!

    Very insightful! Prompt response! Very pleased!
    I dad secured a Ping driver and an assortment of Ping fairway woods. I had a gap between my 9 wood and Cleveland PW (52 degree). Eric gave me some suggestions. Obviously I like Ping clubs, but was intrigued by the Cleveland Turbo irons. I am 72 years old and have felt the need to modify my approach in an effort to keep pace with the flat bellies.

    Very helpful
    I have never had my own set of golf clubs, I have borrowed others or rented and they were all to big and uncomfortable for my size since I am 4 ‘11. Eric pointed me in the right direction for petite and gave me several options of clubs and answered all my questions I had, being new to buying clubs. Very helpful and informative.
