KZG Golf Announces The World’s Top 100 ClubFitters for 2018 – 7 from Australia /Nz

POSTED ON February 8, 2018 @ 10:08 am

KZG, The #1 Custom Proline in Golf Equipment, announces the 2018 Honorees for the title “World’s Top 100 ClubFitters”.

Seven fitter from Australia/NZ made the list – Australian Jeff Mansfield Golf Solutions, Murwillumbah Golf Club, Reckless Golf @ Dural Golf Driving Range, Albert Park Driving Range, GolfStix and NZ based 100% Golf Ltd.

The Top 100 are not stores, courses or centers.  The Top 100 ClubFitters are individuals … individuals who are true professionals.  They have years of experience in fitting.  They are constantly attending classes and seminars to hone their skills and have the integrity to take the time necessary to fit every golfer with the ideal clubs to improve their game.

“We are so pleased to recognize the ‘best of the best’ of ClubFitters” reports Dr. King, President of KZG.  “A majority of the golfing public are aware that custom fit clubs are essential to play their best game.  But the public still needs help in discerning who is truly a qualified professional fitter rather than a glorified salesman.  Our Top 100 list is designed to help golfers discern that difference.”

An independent panel of industry experts have set the criteria necessary to be considered a Top 100 Professional ClubFitter.  A point system based on that criteria was generated to objectively evaluate each applicant. To learn more about the criteria that golfers should consider when selecting a Professional ClubFitter, see www.kzg.com

The industry panel of experts include: Clay Long, renowned club designer and personal fitter for Jack Nicklaus; Gene Parente, President of Golf Laboratories, Inc., the premier golf equipment testing facility and producer of robot testing utilized by virtually every equipment manufacturer; Dr. King, President and founder of KZG, the #1 Custom Proline; Dr. Christian Reichardt, doctor of sports medicine and author of “Pain Free Golf”; and Ed Mitchell, President and Founder of Mitchell Golf Equipment Co., one of the top providers of equipment for custom club building.

This year’s Honorees hail from 21 countries around the globe: 43 from Europe and the UK, 31 from the U.S.; 14 from Canada; 7 from Australia and New Zealand; 4 from Asia; and 1 from Mexico.
