Club Champion Now Open In Columbus, OH

Custom Club Fitter Offers Over 35,000 Head & Shaft Combinations

Willowbrook, IL -- Club Champion, the country’s #1 fitter, builder and retailer of the best brands in golf, announces the opening of its new fitting studio, located at 3644 West Dublin Granville Road, Columbus, Ohio. The new store is open and accepting fitting appointments.

Club Champion fits, sells and builds custom golf clubs constructed from club heads, shafts and grips from brands like Callaway, TaylorMade, Ping, Titleist, Cobra, Fujikura, Golf Pride and many more. The company delivers a Tour-quality fitting that produces longer, more accurate shots with a nearly 100% satisfaction rate for golfers of any ability level.

The new studio features two indoor hitting bays with TrackMan launch monitors for analyzing performance, a SAM PuttLab fitting system to find the perfect putter, and a build shop for repairing and assembling golf clubs by hand. The roughly 3,000 square foot space also includes a demo matrix to display the head and shaft options that make up their 35,000 hittable combinations.

"We are excited to bring the finest club fitting and building to Columbus,” said Joe Lee, CEO and president of Club Champion. “Our approach is unbiased, with no promotion of any specific vendors. Our only goal is to find the best combination of components to help customers lower their scores and better enjoy the game.”

Ranked by Golf Digest as one of the 100 Best Club Fitters ten years running, Club Champion hires experienced fitters who then receive an additional 150+ hours of training, which is unmatched in the golf industry. The company has a unique coupling system used to combine any head and shaft together, so golfers hit the precise combination to be custom built for them. They are the only fitter in the country to offer 35,000 interchangeable head and shaft combinations on-site, at all locations.

“Our unrivaled fitters and demo options generate unmatched results. A recent Golf Magazine study showed our average customer gained 22 yards off the tee, 15 yards with their irons and lowered their scores by three strokes,” says Lee. “Many players think they aren’t good enough to be custom fit. But the study showed that higher handicappers saw the biggest gains. Some of these golfers shaved as many as ten strokes per round.”

Club Champion ambassador and world-renowned golf instructor David Leadbetter says, “It never ceases to amaze me that golfers buy clubs off the shelf and assume they’re right for them. Whether you’re a great golfer or a casual one, getting a custom club fitting is one of the quickest ways to improve your game.”

For a limited time, the Columbus store will celebrate their grand opening by offering 50% off full bag fittings, normally $350 (now $175), and 33% off driver, fairway wood, long game, hybrid, wedge and putter fittings. The studio is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and Friday and Saturday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. More information can be found at www.clubchampiongolf.com or by calling (888) 340-7820.
