CJ Talbert has extensive experience in both club fitting and golf instruction. He has been club fitting since its inception back in the early 90’s and has worked with several club manufacturers through the years to enhance the process, including developing manuals and software. It is his belief that expert club fitting should be a free service to our members. As a teacher of golf, he has been very fortunate. He has watched his junior golfers grow up to play golf on the PGA Tour. CJ has given members lessons which have resulted in friendships for life. He has been fortunate to befriend tour players Brad Faxon, Brett Quigley, Rich Beem, J.P. Hayes, Arjun Atwal, Chris Baryla and Kristi Albers. They have allowed him to assist in their practice preparations for PGA and LPGA Tour events over the years. He carried his PGA Tour instructor credentials for 6 years while working with players. For CJ, it is personally fulfilling to teach golf at so many different levels.
