Authorized PING fitters rely on the interchangeable drivers, irons and shafts in our Advanced Fitting System (AFS), which offers a new fitting cart, stocked with more heads and shafts than ever before, and a new iron-fitting bag. Both tools are equipped with the technology to provide you the most comprehensive and accurate custom fitting in the industry. Other recent software innovations to help dial-in your fit include the iPING Putter App and nFlight Mobile.

Ranked as the leader in custom fitting in a recent consumer survey

by a 3-to-1 margin, PING has trained thousands of fitters to bring the benefits of custom-fit PING equipment to all golfers. PING’s fitting programs are a continuation of founder Karsten Solheim’s pioneering work in custom fitting.

PING-certified club fitters are trained in-person at our plant in Phoenix

or online, providing a thorough education in PING products, how they are manufactured, and how to fit golf clubs "Karsten's way." The result is that every authorized PING fitting account utilizes graduates of the programs, experts who are certified by PING to provide the most comprehensive and accurate fittings in the industry.


In 2013, PING introduced a program that distinguishes its Top 100 National Fitters of the Year. The awards salute those Authorized PING Fitters who have demonstrated the highest commitment to custom fitting and the promotion of its benefits to golfers of all abilities.

“Because of their expertise, these fitters are helping golfers across the country realize the benefits of playing custom-fit and custom-built PING equipment,” said John A. Solheim, PING Chairman & CEO. “On top of that, they offer exceptional customer service that builds trust and loyalty in their golf operation and the PING brand. We’ll continue to support them with ongoing training and education, plus innovative new fitting tools, software and research. These fitters can serve an important role, bringing more people to the sport by demonstrating how properly fit equipment helps them play better and enjoy the game more.”
