World’s Top 100 ClubFitters 2023

Every golfer knows that their golf equipment needs to be custom fit to their unique swing and physique.   It is not an option, it’s a “must”.   But finding the best professional to do the job can be difficult, but well worth the effort.  Here are four critical requirements for your search:

–   A highly skilled Professional who will take the time to get to know you, your game and your goals.

–   A Professional who has the equipment necessary to analyze your swing and then test various combination of demo heads and shafts to assure optimum performance.

–  A Professional who takes responsibility that their fitting instructions are precisely followed and that your custom clubs are perfectly built.

–  And lastly, you want to pay a fair price, not an exorbitant price, for this service.

Despite the fact that there are numerous chains of fitting studios, big box stores, and retailers all claiming to have the necessary credentials to give a first class fitting,  the reality is that very few come close.  More often than not, the golfer gets “sold” rather than “fit”.

But there are venues with Professionals who have the skill, the equipment, the integrity and the passion to give you the best performing equipment for your unique swing.

Here is a check list of what to look for to assure a first class fitting:

–   A Professional Coach, Teacher and/or Clubfitter who has built up a solid, trustworthy reputation within your golfing community.  To earn their reputation, that Professional has put his golfers’ performance before profits.

–  The Professional should have a launch monitor and swing analyzer to assess your swing characteristics.

–  The Professional will have a sufficient number of demo heads and shafts to dial you in perfectly.

–  The Professional will let you test the various options and compare the demo clubs to your current bag and to other brands … you should be able to actually “feel” and “see” the performance on the launch monitor.

–  The Professional will not pressure you to buy anything.  In fact, the Professional may discourage you from buying unless there is real performance improvement.

The following Professionals have met the test of exceptional skill and integrity and have the right equipment in their fitting studios to give you a first class fitting. They have earned the honor of being rated among the World’s Top 100 ClubFitters for 2023 … congratulations to all.
