Olivier Chalon is renowned throughout Europe as a touring Professional, PGA Teacher, Coach and Master ClubFitter. Tour players and aspiring Juniors travel great distances for his guidance and assistance. Recreational golfers line up for his help as well. His training and fitting studio is well equipped with the latest technology including a Trackman.
A scratch player to this day, Olivier started playing at the age of 14, became a PGA teaching professional in 1992, and thereafter a Master ClubFitter and Master Builder. His passion is everything golf. If you ask him what he likes about his profession: “My biggest thrill is when my golfers call me and tell me how much better they are playing with the custom clubs I built for them”. He also is very proud of his tour players and his young Junior golfers that he has coached as they are making headlines across Europe.
“Golfers can’t improve without custom fit and built clubs” Olivier states. “Having custom clubs is absolutely imperative to play and improve. Every golfer that I coach and teach, is playing custom clubs”. Olivier has been consistently rated as one of the World’s Top 100 Clubfitters for many years (2013-2020) and he is also one of the founding members of the International Professional Association of ClubFitters (IPAC) an elite group of the top fitters around the globe. He is so well-respected by KZG, that he is one of just ten worldwide members of its Design Consultant Team.
The C.O. Golf Studio is state-of-the-art. Olivier will take the time to learn about each golfer and their game. He then analyzes their swing using a Trackman launch monitor to determine spin rates, trajectories and other data concerning the swing. Oliver will then put together clubhead and shaft combinations together so that the golfer can actually “feel” and “see” the performance and compare with other combinations. Olivier will then dial it in perfectly for a final test.
Oliver is a perfectionist, so he insists on handcrafting each custom club to the exact specifications needed for the golfer. Every golfer gets a true Tour treatment!
Olivier is truly dedicated to his golfers. In his words: “…the joy I get when I do fittings is to see my golfers’ games improve and the smiles on their faces when they tell me how they performed on the course. If they are happy, I am happy!” His passion for helping his golfers play their very best is unsurpassed.
Give Olivier a call when you are ready to improve and watch the strokes come off your game.
