GOLFTEC Named to PING’s List of Top 100 Club Fitters

(Englewood, Colo.) – GOLFTEC – the world leader in golf lessons and premium club fittings – was recently named to PING’s list of the “Top 100 National Fitters of the Year” which honors facilities across the country that emphasize the importance of accurate fitting for golfers of all ability levels.

GOLFTEC’s custom club fitting service is powered by its proprietary TECFIT® software that 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. According to data GOLFTEC collected in 2018, 75% of golfers who experienced a custom driver fitting gained an average of 25 yards over their previous equipment.

“Being properly fit for clubs is the fastest way for any golfer to see immediate and significant improvement,” says John K. Solheim, PING President. “GOLFTEC has established itself as one of the nation’s leading premium club fitters and PING is proud to play a part in its mission to help all golfers play better and find more enjoyment in the game.”

One of golf’s most iconic manufacturers, PING clubs are fit and sold at over 200 GOLFTEC locations around the world. Popular offerings from PING available at GOLFTEC include the new G410 series of drivers, fairway woods, hybrids and irons, as well as the i500 irons, Glide Forged Wedges and Sigma 2 putters.

“Over the past two years we have completely revamped our club fitting system to ensure every golfer who walks through our doors is playing with the most optimized equipment for their game,” says Joe Assell, co-founder and CEO of GOLFTEC. “We are honored to be recognized as one of the top fitters by a brand as respected and revered throughout the industry as PING.”

In addition to club fitting, GOLFTEC conducts more lessons than any other company in the world. Its unique fact-based approach has led to the average student dropping seven strokes from their game. Lessons are taught one-on-one by Certified Personal Coaches, mostly in indoor bays that utilize proprietary teaching technology. Developing a comprehensive improvement plan for each student is the foundation of GOLFTEC’s philosophy.

The expertise of GOLFTEC coaches across both teaching and fitting disciplines uniquely qualifies the company as one of the most comprehensive solutions for complete game improvement. In addition, GOLFTEC’s partnerships with top club manufacturers like PING means it can provide custom-fit clubs at prices that match the cost of major big-box retailers. This experience is a stark contrast to other premium fitters whose staff are not versed in areas of instruction, or that promote after-market customizations that increase cost to the customer.
