Graduate of Golf Academy of America in Dallas

Master Club Fitter & Builder

Current Employer: Club Champion - Houston

If you need to find new clubs, or perhaps to brush up on your technique, a visit to Miles Hood might be in order. He is currently a Master Club Fitter & Builder at Club Champion in Houston and is certified as a club fitter for seven different brands. He’s also proficient with V1, Gc2, Sam's Putt Lab, K-vest and Trackman Technology.

This interest was sparked at Golf Academy of America in Dallas, where Hood says he found his niche and was exposed to the equipment he would be using when going into the workforce. “GAA taught me how to build clubs and helped me find my passion in the golf industry,” he says. “They also instilled the importance of customer service in every aspect of your job.”

He advises future students to be creative as they lay out their career path. “Don’t think that jobs at the golf course are all that are out there,” says Hood. “Explore every avenue to find what you are passionate about.”

What's in His Bag? Callaway

Golf Ball of Choice: TaylorMade

Best part of his job: "I love getting access to the upgraded equipment most people will never have a chance to try. I also love educating people of the benefits this equipment can bring to their game.”
