    There is nothing quite as satisfying as the purely struck golf shot! For many, getting the right clubs is a mystery.

    Which clubs do I need? Long irons or hybrids? What shaft? Steel or graphite? I can help! As a student of the game and a golf club nerd, I can explain clubs in a way that makes sense.

    Golf clubs should always be helping you get better and enjoy the game more, not work against you!

    While there is no substitute for practice and lessons, having quality, consistent clubs that fit you makes the game more fun.

    Let me help you find them! - Jim

    Very knowledgeable and supportive
    Jim took the time to hear my explanations and history before starting to ask a series of basic questions. He got straight to the point and kept it as real life conversation instead of going towards a more direct simple approach. He also provided options instead of just going for best price, quality, and what everyone buys. He actually took time and provided feedback on clubs I had not even heard of.

    Fantastic experience
    I am always somewhat skeptical with online purchases simply because there is no interaction with anybody on the other end to ask questions . Not the case with Curated. I was looking for a set of golf clubs and Jim was the expert assigned to me. I could not have felt more comfortable with my purchase. He was very knowledgeable, professional and not the least bit pushy. I will be sure to recommend Jim and Curated to my friends and family.

    Best Golf Shopping Experience
    I had such a great and easy experience in searching for a new set of clubs. Jim is so knowledgeable about golf. He was able to recommend many options that fit my game. Then, he helped narrow my search for a new set. He always responded quickly and made the process smooth and exciting. Very happy with my experience with Jim and curated. Highly recommend! Thank you Jim!

    Best shopping experience EVER!
    Wow. I really enjoyed working with Jim on purchasing my new clubs! He took a daunting task & made it thoroughly enjoyable & stress free. Jim listened, gave me options, asked more questions about my game, got creative about my setup, and shared real life experiences! This is the BEST shopping experience I've ever had - hands down, bar none! Can't wait to get my hands on those new clubs!

    Thanks, Jim. Love my Clubs.
    I work for an online retailer - one in the home goods category. For us and Curated, it's clear that great customer service is a crucial trait. The best brands doing business online know this. I was paired with Jim when I started looking with Curated. Jim diligently helped me find a set of clubs I could be excited about and play for years to come. Their price was better than anything I could find out there.

    Jim been a role model through my childhood and adult life. He gives out great advice, and doesn’t tell you information that isn’t 100 percent the truth. I’ve never splurged on golf equipment before, but he made this experience, the best it could have been. I know who I am going to refer and use for the rest of my gold career. GREAT GUY

    Great experience (especially for those who are inexperienced).
    Purchasing experience was very informative. Jim took the time to answer my questions and walk me through the process. Did not try to oversell me but offered his honest opinion (which I came to trust after just a few exchanges). Thanks Jim. Hope to connect with you again soon.

    Can't find any negatives
    Jim was amazing! I was thinking of buying a set of Rogue X irons, and without telling Jim that information, those were the exact clubs he recommended once I gave him some insight into my game. But above that, he explained the reasons behind his choice and in a short time I really learned a lot. It was almost as if I was getting a golf lesson. I'M SOLD!!! I think this will be the only way I'll purchase clubs in the future. Didn't just get new clubs at a great price but also great service and some incredible advice.

    Jim is very knowledgeable gave me the info I needed and was not pushy.
    Jim made several sugestions through the process as l gave more info as to what I was looking for. I went out and tried his sugestions at a local shop. All of which were good irons. Ended up buying Wilson C300 forged irons at one hell of a deal. Would definitely guide someone to speak with Jim for there golfing needs.

    Just what I was looking for
    Jim has the experience and knowledge on all things golf. He talked through my golf game and sent options that he felt fit my game. I completed a order the next day because he was confident in the product he was selling and I felt comfortable with what he was offering. A win in my book.
