Golfers tired of chopping grass with off-kilter clubs might want to swing by the 10th fairway at Beaver Creek Country Club. There they will find ClubRx Tour Shop, a new portable clubfitting shop, from which golfers can pay to have their drivers, clubs and putters custom-fit by Marty Miller, an engineer, avid golfer and clubfitter. "Club professionals, they just don't have the time to do clubfitting," Miller, 61, said. "I saw a need ... Technology and the price of golf clubs has gotten to the point that you should be fitted to know what kind of club to use. " Miller uses Launch Monitor, a computerized clubfitting machine, to analyze a golfer's launch angle, clubhead speed, ball velocity and shot distance, among other variables that determine the best club fit for a player.

When I close my eyes and daydream, I'm standing on the ninth tee at Black Rock preparing to hit my drive. It's a summer evening - always Thursday - and the sun is setting on the golf course. It's warm and humid and the sun looks like someone has taken an orange wafer and pasted it on a blue posterboard. I hit my drive and start heading back toward the clubhouse. Thursday night golf.
