GOLF Magazine names GOLFTEC a Top 50 Clubfitter in North America
GOLFTEC – the world leader in golf lessons and premium club fittings – named a ‘Top 50 Clubfitter in North America’ by GOLF Magazine.
GOLF.com / GOLF Magazine has released their inaugural list of the Top 50 Clubfitters in America and GOLFTEC, the world leader in golf lessons and premium club fittings, was recognized along with other top clubfitters across the country. This recognition comes on the heels of being named a Top 100 Fitter by Callaway, Mizuno and Ping.
GOLFTEC’s enhanced custom club fitting program powered by TECFITÒ is a tour-like fitting experience combining swing characteristics with ball flight data to help identify optimal golf equipment for each student. An array of clubhead/shaft options are available to perfectly match players of any skill level with the clubs that best meet their needs. According to data GOLFTEC collected in 2018, 75% of golfers who experienced a TECFIT saw an increase in total distance and 19% of students increased total distance by more than 33 yards.
“The GOLFTEC fitting experience rivals anyone in the business,” says Nick Clearwater, Vice President of Instruction and a 2019/2020 Best Teacher In Your State winner. “We have the clubhead and shaft selection needed for the best fit for your game, but all of those combinations of clubheads and shafts are not the most critical element. Being fit by an experienced and professional Coach will help you make the best buying decision for you. A professional Coach can help you best understand if your equipment is holding you back, or if the problems lie in your swing, or a combination of both. You cannot get that service anywhere else.”
In 2019 GOLFTEC gave over 34,000 club fittings in over 200 locations worldwide. Every club fitting is performed by a highly trained and certified Coach who has completed GTU, GOLFTEC’s Training University. In order to graduate from GTU, a coach must pass an array of tests and score no lower than 90%. Furthermore, each coach must also be certified by each individual club manufacturer that can be found at a GOLFTEC. These include Callaway, PING, Mizuno, Taylormade, Titleist, and in some Centers, Cobra.
“We are thrilled to be recognized as a Top Clubfitter in America by Golf Digest,” says Joe Assell, Co-Founder and CEO of GOLFTEC. “In just a few years, we have propelled our club fitting system to best in class, partnering with the top manufacturers and matching players with the clubs that best meet their needs. The gains in distance and accuracy our students experience are really impressive.”
GOLF.com’s inaugural list of the Top 50 Clubfitters in America represents a comprehensive vetting process led by industry experts in the fields of club manufacturing, data technology and professional teaching. The criteria for inclusion came down to a focus on brand agnostic fittings using a wide array of clubs and shaft options paired with proprietary fitting systems leveraging launch monitor data from Trackman and Foresight systems.
