Signed up today for Golfworks Club Repair Academy at te end of October. Ive been slowly acquiring and building an area inmy basement and have built a few clubs. Finalizing my travels and finding not great travel options to Columbus from PDX. Plan to.go to the Jack Nicklaus Museum at OSU while im there. 

Have a great time!  I always wanted to do that, but I just still muddle my way through whatever builds I need for myself.  I order all my parts through Golfworks.

Should be a good connection to Columbus on Delta through MSP.   We have a direct flight to MSP from the TriCities.  That connection is relatively new; when I was still working I had to fly to Columbus through SLC/Cincinnati or SLC/ATL; not the best flights.  

We don’t stop playing the game because we get old; we get old because we stop playing the game.”

Good for you! Would love to hear about your experience. Someday when we've got a house with some space I'd love to have some club building equipment.

Right next to the indoor launch monitor and indoor weight room 😅

The return flight is the issue as I am trying to get home Friday night.  Using miles for the trip there on Alaska  through Seattle and using SW on the way home through Phoenix.  I will be cutting it close in Phoenix to make connection so I might get to see a little of Phoenix.  Just no direct flights really as most places I go out of PDX I can do direct.

I will report back.  I hope to go back for more classes if it all works out and  I find the value in it.  I took the cheapest close to fit my needs for a test run and burning little out of pocket as I have hotel points and air miles. 

Ive written off the launch monitor as my garage is a bit tight and my basement isn't tall enough.

If you are going to be renting a car, you might consider checking flights to Cleveland (~2-2.5 hour drive to Columbus). I fly to Portland about every other year and even though Cleveland is closest to us, we generally check Columbus, too. Cleveland generally has the more convenient and cheaper flights in our experience.

Thanks for the vid..I was wondering about the classroom. Had a phone call and email today from Marilyn at GW. I was a bit surprised that it was suggested to bring a couple different clubs to work on. Guess I will package a few up and just ship them to GW or my hotel. Also was suggested to bring a tape player to record the classes which is a great idea.

I took a full set of clubs and tore them down and built them back more than a few time through out the week.

Take a wedge in case you get a chance to grind, take and iron for disassembly and assembly, loft lie changes, regripping,

Take a driver for testing, you might get to reshaft and then go to the launch bay for the results.

Tape player?  I would take a go pro and record the sessions..that way you have a visual of what you were doing.  Of course make sure that video recordings are ok just in case...

Only a 2 day class so not sure how its laid out. Im thinking of just hitting a Goodwill in the area then leave them behind for others when I leave.

It would be great if you could bring back some information on the Maltby TS1.

That video is a tease of incredible golf knowledge. I’d love to sit back and listen to those Jim’s tell old stories

My bad, I was commenting on the Video recorder, that's a no go....sry  Voice is NP

 

Enjoy I've been to many classes there, great time and you wont find more knowledge in one place. Make sure you taken the tour of manufacturing, pretty cool stuff
