World’s Top 100 ClubFitters Named for 2020

It’s unanimous.  Every teaching pro, touring pro and avid golfer will tell you that to play your best and to improve, you must be fit.  Even the PGA of America admonishes: “It’s no longer an ‘option’, it’s a ‘must’.”

Unfortunately, over 90% of golfers are still playing with the wrong clubs.  No surprise given the fact that over 60% of all clubs are sold on-line.  Many more are purchased in store, but “off-the-rack”.

The balance of golfers at least attempt to get “fitted” but still miss out on a real first-class fitting.  Some golfers opt to have their teacher fit them from a “fitting bag” without the benefit of a launch monitor.  Others go to large retail store or fit center where they only get a quick fit job and a hard sell.  The turnover in these facilities is usually quite high … and the “fitters” usually lack experience and adequate training.

Some publications, list their Top ClubFitters as large chain stores and fitting centers.  The list fails to name any individual professionals who have the years of experience, skill and reputation to actually earn the title.

Then there are golfers who decide to be their own experts.  They go into a fitting center and say, “I want what Koepka is playing” or “I want that latest “XYZ Club” that is being advertised”.  Many retailers are happy to accommodate.  But it is the fitter with integrity who will ask: “But sir, is your game like Koepka’s?” or “would you be open to test some demos using a launch monitor to see what actually performs the best for you?”.

Industry insiders estimate the number of truly skilled fitters to be around 800 for the entire world.  The golfing public has the impossible task of discerning the good fitters, from the mediocre and the bad.

The World’s Top 100 Professional ClubFitters List is designed to help golfers find legitimate fitters who are highly skilled, have earned outstanding reputations and who have integrity.  No brick and mortar listed here.  Each professional listed has years of experience, has attended numerous seminars to hone their skills, and who have actually built-up a solid reputation for helping golfers play their best.  See at the end of this article, the criteria for selecting the Top 100.
