Chicago (November, 23, 2016) - What do you give the golfer who has everything? Custom club fitter Club Champion has the answer. Whether your golfer is great at the game or a casual player, give them the same tour quality club fitting PGA pros get on tour. Club Champion's premium club fitting can help golfers gain up to 20 yards (or more) in distance and more accuracy; allowing them to enjoy this wonderful game of golf to the fullest.
With advances in club technology, most golfers could easily hit the ball further and more accurately, yet a 2011 Golf Magazine study found that 90% of U.S. golfers may be playing with clubs that don't fit properly. Most golf stores 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 ideal combinations for each individual golfer.
Club Champion is elevating the fitting landscape by providing a fitting superior to its competition. They offer 35,000 interchangeable head and shaft combinations on-site, at all 16 national locations. They feature an array of premium shafts stocked by few, if any of its competitors. Golfers get to hit the exact club that will be custom built for them. The Club Champion approach is unbiased, with no specific vendor being promoted - the only goal is to find the best combination of components to lower customer scores. A Golf Digest study of Club Champion customers found that 8 out of 9 golfers lowered their score by as much as six strokes per round.
Ranked by Golf Digest as one of the 100 Best Club Fitters four years running, Club Champion hires only master fitters who then 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 Dave 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 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."
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 Director of Customer Experience, Mike Trapani. "Nearly 100% of customers are pleased with our services, and the majority of them bring their friends back in."
Former PGA Tour veteran Jay Williamson benefited from Club Champion's expertise. Amazingly, Jay 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."
In addition to delivering a better fit, Club Champion builds clubs to exacting, unrivaled tolerances. Your swing is unique, so your clubs should be, too. At Club Champion, they build each club by hand because they know every degree, swing weight and millimeter can make a big difference. The fitting creates your specs - it's Club Champion's job to make sure the perfect match ends up in your bag. This level of quality is what drives customers to their studios to get fitted.
Fitting prices range from $80 for wedges to $350 for an entire bag fitting. Pricing for the clubs are the same as you find at any golf shop, plus the cost of upgraded shafts if necessary. Club Champion is offering a winter fitting special starting November 1 offering 50% off a full bag fitting or 33% off any other fitting (driver only, iron only, etc. - half the price listed above) where fittings must be completed by January 31, 2017. Club Champion also has gift certificates available throughout the year in $50 increments. Locations include: Atlanta, Austin, Boston, Dallas, Houston, Long Island (Syosset), Los Angeles, New York City/Hackensack, Orlando, Philadelphia, Seattle, St. Louis, Washington, D.C., and three stores in Chicago metropolitan area. Two new stores are coming in January: Denver and Charlotte. To schedule a fitting or more information, call your local Club Champion store or visit clubchampiongolf.com.
