Doc Griffin was a competitive player until a shoulder injury in the early 1990's. At this point, he became heavily involved in the retail side of golf. In 1996, Doc opened his first retail golf store. Later, he went on to work with Wilson, Adams, and TaylorMade. There came a point in his career when he realized there was much more to club fitting than what was being offered. So, he set out to learn and grow his skills as a professional club fitter in order to be able to offer the golfing community an honest and true fitting system, thus Doc Griffin Golf was conceived. Through Doc's association with Swing Surgeon Golf, Don Trahan, and DJ Trahan, he has been able to have a very positive and tremendous impact on the golfing community.

What people have to say about Doc Griffin

I want to thank you for the time you spent with me during the fitting process and making me a truly great set of clubs. I appreciate your courtesy and professionalism shown to me during the fitting. I have played four rounds of golf with the new clubs and played my best round last Sunday (47 degree weather) since I moved to South Carolina a year ago. Shot 74. Prior to that round I have struggled to break 80. 


Again thanks, these clubs are everything you said they would be. They are the most solid feeling clubs I have ever hit. The flight pattern, distance and feel are everything I was expecting from a set of custom fitted clubs.

Hey Mr. Griffin I was trying to leave a comment but didn't know how so i did this. I wanted to say that I am so grateful for the help you have given me since i have been at Newberry it has been greatly appreciated. You really know what you are doing and your advice has made me more confident in my clubs and in turn made me a better golfer. I hope to see you soon maybe to go over a 3 wood because i hate mine but that is besides the point. I just wanted to say what you do is greatly appreciated and keep it up!

 Just wanted to check in and let everyone know how my clubs that you fitted and built for me are doing. I normally shot between 80 and 86 with a rare trip into the high 70s. The first time I played with the new clubs I shot an 80, nothing unusual right? Wrong-I had double bogeys on the first three holes due to flying over the first three greens, I hit the Miura blades almost 15 yards farther than my Nike Sumos!!! From there on great golf! The next time out I had the best (so far) round of my life 74, the next time when my wife asked me what I shot I said, oh I played bad today a 77! Getting you to build these clubs along with joining PPGS is the best thing that has ever happened to my golf game!! Cant wait for my first even par round, and soon after my first under par round! Thanks for all you did for me. Worth every penny that the clubs cost. Fantastic investment!

I stopped by the Golf Stop to be fitted by Doc Griffin on my way to Florida last December. Last year, my first full winter in Florida, I had a hard time breaking 100. I averaged 87 last month. How much is due to the new clubs and how much of it is due to more playing, I'm not sure. But one thing I'm sure of is I'm not sorry I gave myself a new set of clubs for Christmas. Thanks Lynn.

Just a quick note to let you know my driver arrived safely and I took it out for a test today, I was completely blown away with the results, not only did you cure my slice (which I had thought impossible) but I now hit a straight drive with no loss of distance, Plus I can hit a controlled draw which I could never do before. You are just an engineering genius in my opinion and this combined with the swing alignment you showed me has me shaving strokes off my handicap continually, I actually feel like I know what I'm doing now and approach the game with more confidence than ever, so thank you again for everything, you are a master at what you do.....I still can't get over how beautifully it swings, keep up the good work.


Hi Doc, I wanted to thank you for your help. I have played about 13 rounds since getting the clubs you made arrived in October. The driver is the straightest one I've ever had. My swing improves with each round and I am hitting very solid shots with a shorter swing. Lastly, although my swing is shorter, it is faster with less effort. I am glad I made the trip to see you in Michigan. Have a great Holiday Season. Sincerely, John B.

In March of this year, I was in Hilton Head, and decided to visit Doc Griffin for  fitted clubs. Doc spent several hours with me. He noted my slow club speed and other deficiencies, made some modest adjustments in my swing, and provided me with  a new set of clubs.

Wow, I am now hitting incredibly straight with all the clubs. I never see a slice,  I am putting the ball where I want it to go, and am now having to adjust my club  choices, because I am hitting every club longer by 20 - 30 yards. I am now able to  spend more time on the short game.

I just can't tell you how much difference I have noted since the very day I  received the new clubs. I am having the time of my life, and hope I can continue  golfing for a number of years.

Hi Doc; I wanted to take this time to thank you for working with me on my fitting Tuesday of this week. I especially enjoyed the uninterrupted time you spent with me and the honesty in regard to my swing and what you see as my present ability; especially with the driver. I was very impressed with the comfort and ease you made me feel immediately. I am looking forward to receiving my new clubs. I am determined to improve my early release with the driver and am going to work diligently to hit the ball on the upswing and increase my club head speed. With that in mind; I think the "Swing Rite Trainer" will help me obtain this goal. Will you please add a swing Rite Trainer to my club order. I want you to know that driving 750 miles round trip to meet a "Real Professional Fitter" and have you work with me was well worth my time and money. May God continue to bless you and your entire family as he is the healer and has the "perfect Swing" for all our needs. I feel I have met a new friend.

Hey Doc  - wanted you to know how much I have enjoyed my new custom fit clubs. I have played 5 rounds with them and the fit, the look, and the results are amazing. I didn't realize how much of a difference a true custom fit set of clubs would make in my game and attitude on the course. I feel very confident when I step up to a shot. I really like the 2 new hybrid irons. Thanks for doing such a professional job . Golf is fun again --

Doc I just wanted to thank you again.  My fitting session with you was fantastic and quite frankly the best I have ever experienced. Not only did I learn a lot about using the proper equipment, I also learned a lot about golf itself. My clubs arrived a week ago and the weather in Jersey finally broke enough where I was able to play a round with my clubs for the first time.  I am happy to say that I shot 81 the first time out and it could have been a few shots better. The clubs felt great and the added confidence in knowing that I had the proper tools allowed me to just apply the Swing Surgeon techniques and enjoy a great round of golf.  The right tools combined with the proper technique truly do help in making golf even more enjoyable. When you say that "better golf is only a fitting away" I for one can truly attest to accuracy of that statement.  I have never made a better investment than the day last month when I decided to extend my Myrtle Beach trip an extra day and take the drive to Columbia to meet with you.

Don, thank you for all you do with the videos, website and tools for us golfers to download and work with.  They are truly informative and most helpful.  I am looking forward to hopefully getting a lesson with you when you come to New Jersey in July.  And thank you for affiliating yourself with such professionals as Doc Griffin.  You both are truly a breathe of fresh air in the golfing industry.  Best wishes for continued success in all you do.
