More and more golfers are recognizing that properly fit clubs are the key to improving their golf game, and, ultimately, having more fun on the course. Throughout the month of April, PGA and LPGA Professionals across the country will be providing free equipment fittings as part of PGA Free Fitting & Trade-Up Month.

“As a PGA Professional, I know how important it is to have properly fit equipment to those who play the game, regardless of the level they play.” said PGA of America President Allen Wronowski. “PGA and LPGA Professionals are trained experts in the game of golf and can help consumers solve the club-fitting puzzle through this program. I can assure you that anyone who is custom fit into the right clubs will see an immediate improvement in their game.”
In addition to providing a free 15-minute fitting session, participating PGA and LPGA Professionals authorized by the PGA Trade-In Network can help golfers trade in their obsolete golf clubs based on fair market value determined by the PGA.com Value Guide and apply that amount towards new and fitted clubs. Nike Golf is the official equipment sponsor and is offering an additional trade in value to help enhance the experience for golfers.
More than 3,000 PGA/LPGA Professionals participated in Free Fitting and Trade-Up Month in 2010, giving more than 33,000 free fittings. Not only did these fittings improve the games of the golfers, but this program also provided a boost to the golf industry. Participating facilities showed an average of $3,700 in additional revenue generated by the program, resulting in a more than $7.8 million overall impact to the golf industry last year. Since the program’s inception, more than 165,250 golfers have received free fittings, resulting in a more than a $36 million industry impact.
