Callaway Distance Fitting: Free 30-Minute Expert Calls
Over the past decade, the percentage of golfers being custom fitted for clubs has skyrocketed.
Club professionals, major big box golf retailers, and practice ranges have all gotten on board with the trend to tailor equipment to your golf swing, not vice-versa. But when some states aren't allowing golf lessons, and demo days are on pause for the summer, the trend towards customization has taken body blow.
We're not sure if what letter of the alphabet the recovery is going to look like, but suffice it to say that golfers in need of new equipment might be willing to take more chances than they may have before our world got rocked by COVID-19.
