True Temper Spotlight: Bryan DeMarco

Share

We are honored to have Bryan DeMarco on our True Certified Shaft Council and as a member of our Performance Fitting Center program. Bryan has been a PGA Class A Professional since 2007 and currently works at Pine Barrens Golf Club and Customwerks Golf in Jackson, NJ.

We talked with Bryan about some of the highlights of his job and the important of custom fitting.

Q. What is your career highlight?

A. While my career is still technically in what I would consider the “front 9”, I do have many memories and highlights.  Two instances stand out more than others, the first of those being the day I was elected to Class A Membership in the PGA of America.  My father served as a head professional for 35 years, and is now a retired Life Member of the PGA.  Having grown up around golf and in the business, it was quite a moment of pride to finally become a member of the association that has been such a huge part of my family’s life for so many years.

The second of my highlights would certainly be the day I was named head professional at Pine Barrens Golf Club in the early part of 2014.  Like many golf professionals, we spend our time as assistants working our way toward one day being a head professional, and when that day comes there is a definite level of accomplishment and sense of pride.

Q. What is your favorite part of your job?

A. Be it helping a customer squeeze a few more yards out of his driver by optimizing him with a new shaft, running golf tournaments for my membership, or playing golf with my staff in the evenings at our picturesque golf course, there are so many aspects to my job that I enjoy that it is hard for me to narrow it down to just one example.

Q. What is your dream foursome?

A. I have an all-time dream foursome and a real world dream foursome.  My all time dream foursome would be Ben Hogan, Jack Nicklaus, and Fred Couples.  I would love to spend the course of a round of golf chatting with these gentlemen and watching their actions on the golf course.   

My real world dream foursome would be fellow PGA Professionals Jason Lamp and John Rutecki, joined by an old friend Tom Woods.  During my years as an assistant the four of us had many engaging matches, which created some memories that will last a lifetime. 

Q. What is the tip you give most golfers?

A. Get Fitted!  Whenever I have a member or customer interested in purchasing new clubs, I always stress fitting the clubs to the customer over all else.  The golfer owes it to their game to have their clubs fitted professionally.  This is the reason that we carry no inventory of “stock spec” irons…all of our irons are custom ordered specific to the customer.
