At Granville Golfland, a Golf Digest Top 100 club fitter 30 minutes east of Columbus, Ohio, custom-fit clubs used to take about 7 to 10 days to arrive. Now, customers are being told it may take as long as 12 weeks. At American Golf locations in the U.K., they’re telling clients they might not come until December.

Irons, drivers, putters, even grips have been hard to find because of global supply chain shortages that have delayed everything from semiconductors to chlorine tablets.
