PING has announced its 2013 Club Fitters of the Year in Canada, recognizing authorized PING fitters who demonstrate the highest commitment to custom fitting and the promotion of its benefits to golfers of all abilities.
“Because of their expertise, these fitters are helping golfers across the country realize the benefits of playing custom-fit and custom-built PING equipment,” said PING chairman and CEO John A. Solheim.
“On top of that, they offer exceptional customer service that builds trust and loyalty in their golf operations and the PING brand,” he added.
“We’ll continue to support them with ongoing training and education, plus innovative new fitting tools, software and research,” he said.
“These fitters can serve an important role, bringing more people to the sport by demonstrating how properly fit equipment helps them play better and enjoy the game more,” said Solheim.
Solheim said PING offers its certified fitting accounts a growing array of tools and software to dial in a more precise fit, while making the process easy, cost-effective and convenient.
Those include the Advanced Fitting System Interchangeable Fitting Cart, the iPING putter app, a new putter-fitting package and nFlight and nFlight Mobile fitting software.
Winners were chosen based on points earned across several criteria and disciplines, including custom orders, commitment to ongoing training, sustained sales growth, use of PING tools and technologies, and support of the entire PING product line.
