World’s Top 100 ClubFitters Named for 2021

Attention all golfers:  You must be fit.   No question about it.   Every coach, teaching professional, tour player and avid golfer is adamant that  you must be fit in order to improve and play your best.  Even the PGA of America admonishes: “It’s no longer an ‘option’, it’s a ‘must’.”

But where to go?  Who to trust?  Who has the skill?  Who has integrity?  Who really cares about you, the golfer?

You have to ask yourself, what golf brands, what professionals and what venues really care about the golfer.  Most rely on the internet for easy sales, fitting forms that are rough guesstimates, and glorified salesman claiming to be fitters for a quick fit and hard sale.  All put profits before performance.

But it really isn’t that difficult to search for a qualified professional with the skill and integrity who will take the time to fit you properly and assure that your clubs are precisely built.  What do you look for?  A professional coach, teacher and/or clubfitter who has a very good reputation in your golfing community and who puts the golfer’s performance ahead of profits and sales.  A professional who will take the time to get to know you, your game and your goals.  They will be equipped with a launch monitor, plenty of clubhead and shaft options to be able to really fit you,  and they will let you feel, test and compare the proposed custom clubs.  They won’t pressure you to buy.   With a professional who has both skill and integrity, you get fit, not sold.

The following professionals have met the test of exceptional skill as well as integrity to be rated among the World’s Top 100 ClubFitters for 2021 … congratulations to all.
