Titleist increases investment in custom fitting
To reach more UK golfers
Titleist continues to place more emphasis on custom fitting than any other brand in golf with further investment in its Product Specialist team and fitting events across the UK & Ireland.
Following the success of 2017’s extensive series of custom fitting events, Titleist is investing even more into this area to help more golfers shoot lower scores in 2018. Led by the brand’s 15-strong expert team of Product Specialists, Titleist will host more than 1,500 ball and club fitting events throughout the UK & Ireland this year, with the aim to fit over 25,000 golfers for the best Titleist ball and clubs for their games.
This year’s extensive fitting series will comprise of Titleist Golf Club Fitting Days at partner golf clubs nationwide, Golf Ball fitting & selection events, Vokey Wedge Experience events, Scotty Cameron Experience days, as well as the extremely popular ‘Titleist Thursdays’, a series of advanced fittings to be staged on consecutive Thursdays throughout the season, from The Masters Tournament through to the end of the golfing season.
Based all around the UK & Ireland, Titleist’s highly trained team of Product Specialists will continue to support its extensive network of Fitting Partners. All fitting events will see Titleist Product Specialists work with golfers to optimise ball and club performance and fine-tune set composition in order to help them play better golf. As part of the brand’s commitment to custom fitting, this year Titleist has invested even more into its fitting department and, as a result, has grown its expert team across both ball and club categories.
