James is one of the most laid back, easy going guys I have ever met. As he started to explain some of his theories of wedge design as well as show me some of what he has been working on, I thought to myself what an honor it was to have JP to take the time to share his passion with a complete stranger. It’s very clear, JP has an unquestioned passion for his art, and deserves to be mentioned with some of the best of the business even in the infancy of his business. The work he produces is absolutely flawless. Couple that with some of the finest forgings in the business from Kyoei, the end product really is something special.
While I was there, JP fit me on his lie board, and adjusted the loft and lie on all the irons in my bag. I was amazed at the attention to detail he uses even with something as simple as bending a head. He has built in backstops in place to ensure that when he bends a club, it leaves no evidence of a bending mark on the head.
Following the fitting and bends, he pulled out his iPod, handed me a set of ear protection, sat in front of the wheel and went to work. James’ attention to detail when cutting and sculpting Kyoei forgings in unreal. JP’s passion, technical understanding of the game, the wedge, design, and the art of grinding go into each and every head he produces.
I wanted to share some photo’s from my experience, I hope you enjoy them.
