Ping Golf is the Pioneer in Club Fitting
Custom club fitting was born in the 1960s when Karsten Solheim helped PGA professionals improve their games after adjusting their equipment Today, Ping is the leader in club fitting with the most comprehensive fitting system in the industry.
*[40 years ago] Karsten Solheim began work on his famous PING Color Code System to bring the benefits of custom fitting to the average golfer. Today, PING is the undisputed fitting leader, with thousands of fitting systems at golf shops and courses around the world, a fleet of fitting vehicles that travel to demo days around the country, and a comprehensive, PGA-certified training program designed to instruct golf professionals to properly fit PING equipment to every golfer’s swing.
The Klees Golf staff has been trained and certified to use Ping’s fitting system. Klees Golf Shop is an authorized Ping Fitting center and Retailer, with the clubs and tools necessary to fit a golfer for irons, woods and putters.
The new PING Color Code Chart features two new color codes — yellow (1.5° upright) and purple (1.5° flat) — to bring the total number of available lie angles to 12. Each of the 12 color codes is separated by .75° to provide golfers a more precise fit for improved accuracy and consistency.
Regardless of your ability, properly fit clubs can help you hit straighter, more consistent shots. By matching the proper club specifications to your swing, a fitter can help reduce or eliminate undesirable shot patterns, like hooks and slices, allowing you to play closer to your full potential.
Length, shaft flex and grip size, along with lie angle all contribute to developing good swing habits, as well as making the clubs be more enjoyable to use. Custom-fit clubs don’t cost any more or take any longer to build. Once an order has been placed through an authorized PING retailer, Ping’s streamlined production process allows them to ship your clubs, built to your exact specifications, usually in just 48 hours.*Text taken from the www.pinggolf.com website.
