PING’s Fitting programs are a continuation of Karsten Solheim’s pioneering work in custom fitting. Participants in the programs have been certified by PING to provide the most comprehensive and thorough fittings available. Authorized fitters rely on a variety of tools, including the interchangeable drivers and irons offered in the Advanced Fitting System (AFS), to ensure your clubs match your individual needs. The 40-iron Fitting Cart, metal wood and putter fitting systems offer you the opportunity to have every club in your bag custom fit and custom built.
by a 3-to-1 margin, PING has trained thousands of fitters in order to bring the benefits of custom fitting to all golfers.
at our plant in Phoenix, learning about PING products, how they are manufactured, and how to fit golf clubs "Karsten's way." The result is that every authorized PING Fitting Cart Account is staffed with knowledgeable, factory-trained personnel who are able to custom-fit a golfer for a complete set of PING golf clubs.
In 2013, PING announced a new 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.”
