Equipment Trusted by St. Jude Invitational Champion Now Available Through GOLFTEC Club Fitting

(ENGLEWOOD, Colo.) – GOLFTEC – the world leader in golf lessons and premium club fittings – announces select equipment used by the winner of the World Golf Championships-FedEx St. Jude Invitational, including Mizuno JPX 919 Tour irons and TaylorMade M5 driver are available through its renowned club fitting program.

Relying on a diverse bag of equipment to seal his third victory of 2019, the champion led the field in strokes gained putting, birdie-to-bogey ratio, par-4 scoring and scrambling throughout the week. The No. 1 ranked player in the world takes a brand agnostic approach to his equipment, only selecting the gear that performs best for his game. GOLFTEC shares this philosophy and encourages golfers to determine what works for their games through the fitting process.

Golfers now have the opportunity to test this equipment through GOLFTEC'S custom club fitting program that uses proprietry TECFIT® software to determine if it is right for their games. The TOUR-like fitting experience combines 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. Nearly 75% of golfers who have undergone a driver fitting gained an average of 25 yards over previous equipment.

“Each week winners on the PGA TOUR succeed thanks in large part to their confidence in the performance of their custom fit equipment,” says Mike Helfrich, vice-president of club fitting and merchandise. “Whether it be the driver, irons, wedges or putters, our staff is comprised of the best teachers and club fitting experts in the country, each of whom is commited to helping our students feel just as confident in their clubs.”

During a 60-90 minute club fitting session, GOLFTEC identifies optimal club head / shaft combinations and other adjustments to ensure equipment is perfectly matched for any student. Not only an expert in club fitting, GOLFTEC has established itself as the world leader in golf improvement with more data on the golf swing than anyone else in the world, thanks to its SwingTRU Motion Study.
