MIKE MOYNAHAN OF KAMA'AINA CLUBMAKERS
IN KAMUELA, HAWAII
NAMED AGCP MASTER OF GOLF CLUB TECHNOLOGY
The Association of Golf Clubfitting Professionals recently announced the very first AGCP Masters of Golf Club Technology. This distinction goes to members who meet specific criteria for education and experience and their commitment to continuing the education of all golf clubfitters and clubmakers. Mike Moynahan was on a short list of only 11 "Masters" in the nation.
THE ACGP MASTER OF GOLF CLUB TECHNOLOGY:
Where some organizations teach how to build golf clubs and/or fit golf clubs, and some organizations teach how to swing golf clubs and/or fit clubs, the AGCP is the only organization that emphasizes both aspecs of the golf game, the golf club and the golf swing to fit golf clubs.
The AGCP requires training in both areas to insure that members understand not only how the golf club works and how the golf swing works, but to understand how they work together. This is the ultimate in fitting and equipment when you are fit for and built a golf club or set of golf clubs that are perfectly adapted to you and your golf swing.
AGCP Masters of Golf Club Technology are not only those who have the most experience, most training and the fully equipped shops but they are also those who give back to other clubmakers the most. Masters are the AGCP members who often at their own personal expense travel sometimes thousands of miles to offer one or more two-hour presentations to AGCP memebers at the annual AGCP Roundtable Convention
and Expo in Columbus, Georgia.
To gain the unique distinction of becoming a Master of Golf Club Technology the AGCP member must have achieved the following:
- Masters must have experience as a Professional*
Club Technician, Club Fitter & Club Builder.
- Full-Time (5 yrs experience) or Part-Time (10 yrs experience)
- Masters must achieve AGCP Level 10 at least
12 months prior to nomination.
- Masters must have attended at least two
Roundtable Education Conventions.
Masters must have made at least one Presentation at a Roundtable or be scheduled for a presentation in the upcoming Roundtable.
- Masters must be nominated by three or more current AGCP Masters.
- Masters must have knowledge and training in golf swing mechanics and know how the golf swing and golf club work together.
In addition the Master of Golf Club Technology of the future must have completed a series of special Certification Classes in the different areas of clubfitting and club building.
Such areas as Length Fitting, Trajectory Fitting, Shaft Profile Fitting for both Woods and Irons, Wedge Fitting, Grinding heads for special playing conditions, and many, many areas too numerous to list.
Each AGCP Master of Golf Club Technology is truly a "MASTER"!
