PING Canada has announced its Club Fitters of the Year for 2015, to recognize authorized PING Fitters who have shown the highest commitment to custom fitting and the promotion of its benefits.
“Since the 1970s, PING has demonstrated the connection between custom fitting and better scores and we’re delighted to recognize these dedicated, accomplished fitters who help golfers experience the difference a precise fit makes,” said PING chairman and CEO John A. Solheim.
“PING-trained fitters have the expertise to drill down to a player’s exact specifications, which will translate to lower scores and more enjoyment from the game,” he added.
“We’ll continue to supply these fitters with industry-leading fitting technologies, along with our expertise, training and research,” said Solheim.
PING offers certified fitting accounts multiple tools to dial in a more precise fit, while making the process easy, cost-effective and convenient.
They include the lightweight and functional Advanced Fitting System (AFS) fitting cart, providing flexibility and access to interchangeable drivers, irons and shafts.
Winners were chosen based on points earned across several criteria, including custom orders, commitment to ongoing training, sustained sales growth, use of PING tools and technologies and support of the entire PING product line.
