With all the advances in golf club technology, most golfers could easily hit the ball further and more accurately. A 2011 Golf Magazine study found that 90% of U.S. golfers may be playing with clubs that don’t fit properly.
For golfers looking to improve quickly, enjoy the game more and add as much as 20 or more yards, premium club fitting is the way to go. The best fittings allow golfers to hit interchangeable heads and shafts from all the most popular brands. Most big golf stores like PGA Tour Superstore, Golfsmith, and Golf Galaxy, use stock club-fitting carts provided by club manufacturers. While these carts offer options, golfers are unable to mix and match shafts and club heads between different carts to determine the perfect club. Hit Exactly What You Will Buy Club Champion is changing the landscape, providing a comprehensive fitting superior to the competition. Ranked by Golf Digest as one of the 100 Best Club Fitters three times in a row, Club Champion owns and operates eleven high-performance fitting studios around the country. It is the only fitter to offer 15,000 interchangeable head and shaft combinations on-site at all eleven national locations. Golfers hit the exact same club that will be custom built for them. “When you go to any Club Champion, you get the same club options, a proven and consistent fitting process and the same technology at every studio. You can’t find this type of consistency from any other fitter,” says Jay Hubbard, VP of Marketing at Club Champion. Master Fitters Only Club Champion hires master fitters who receive an additional 100+ hours of training before starting their job, training unmatched, especially by big box golf stores. The proof is in the results, says Florida resident and Club Champion customer Dave Greer. Greer loved his aging Mizuno irons but was open to what might take his game to the next level. Says Greer, “The fitting process was amazing. The fitter first identified the proper shaft and then found the right head. With each combination, I was able to see the improved results statistically laid out on screen. I ended up with Callaway XR
Pro irons and picked up 10-20 yards in distance. It’s worth every penny spent just to see the looks on your playing partners’ faces when they see the results of your changes.” Tour-Quality Fitting Technology Technology plays a big part in identifying the custom equipment. Trackman Pro, the gold standard of launch monitors and simulators, is the same system the PGA Tour uses to track pro stats. Club Champion uses it to take precise club and ball measurements in a controlled environment. “Customers love our experience,” says Club Champion VP, Mike Trapani. “More than 95% of customers are so pleased, they bring their friends in.”
Former PGA Tour veteran Jay Williamson benefited from Club Champion’s expertise. He gained 15 yards over the fittings he received on tour. Says Williamson, “Club Champion’s fitting knowledge and selection of interchangeable heads and shafts allowed me to instantly hit numerous combinations in the same session. If you are a committed golfer at any level, I highly recommend it.”
Unrivaled Club Building Tolerances In addition to delivering a better fit, Club Champion builds clubs to exacting, unrivaled tolerances. Master Builder David Seo, “Your swing is unique, your clubs should be, too. At Club Champion, we build each club by hand because we know every degree, swing weight and millimeter can make a big difference. The fitting creates your specs – it’s our job to make sure the perfect match ends up in your bag.” This level of quality is what drives customers to their studios, some of which drive or fly hundreds or even thousands of miles just to get fit. Fitting prices range from $80 for wedges to $350 for an entire bag fitting that can be split into separate appointments. Pricing for the clubs are the same as you find at any golf shop, plus the cost of upgraded shafts if necessary. To schedule a fitting, call your local Club Champion or visit clubchampiongolf.com.
