With advances in golf club technology, most golfers could easily hit the ball further and more accurately. Yet a Golf Magazine study found that 90% of U.S. golfers may be playing with improperly fit clubs. A Golf Digest study found that 8 out of 9 Club Champion custom fit golfers lowered their score by as much as 6 strokes per round and added up to 21 yards off the tee.
Club Champion is the country’s premier club fitter, builder, and retailer of the best brands in golf.

Ranked by Golf Digest among the 100 Best Club Fitters three times in a row
Club Champion has a unique coupling system that allows them to combine any head and shaft together, so golfers hit the precise combination to be custom built for them. Most golf stores use fitting carts provided by club manufacturers and while these carts offer options, golfers are unable to mix and match from different carts to determine ideal combinations. Club Champion offers hundreds of shafts and many are not available through most other fitters and retailers. Former PGA Tour player Jay Williamson says, “I had access to every brand of shaft and head, but I never understood what they did for me. I didn’t have the opportunity to experiment like I do at Club Champion. They bring the same level of service players receive on Tour, including the newest heads and shafts and the most advanced fitting technology. If you are a committed golfer at any level, I highly recommend it.” Incidentally, Club Champion was able to add an average of 15 yards to Jay’s driving statistics.
As a golf writer, I‘v experienced many fittings but this was totally different. My driver picked up an average of 24 yards. I added 15 yards to my irons and reduced dispersion by approximately 30%. It’s easier hitting greens with a 7-iron than a 5-iron.
Club Champion stands out because they actually build clubs in-house, to exacting, unrivaled tolerances. Variables such as swing weight, length, lie and flex definitely alter performance. The experience and know-how in combining these intricate parts together is what separates Club Champion from its competition. Chuck Thiry, Vice President Strategic Partnerships – Cleveland Golf says,
“In our experience, Club Champion represents the finest in the art of club fitting and building. We are confident that Club Champion will fit, service and support the most discerning golfers at the highest possible levels.”
While anyone will benefit from premium club fitting, it is for the golfer who wants optimized performance. When Club Champion says you’ll add 20 yards off the tee, they mean it. Whether you are looking to buy new clubs or fix your current set, premium club fitting is the answer. Fitting prices range from $80 for wedges to $350 for an entire bag. The company has studios located in Chicago (3 stores), Boston, New Jersey/NYC, Philadelphia, Washington, D.C., Atlanta, Orlando, Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles and opening in March, St. Louis, Austin, and Seattle.
