NORTH HOLLYWOOD, Calif. (January 24, 2008) - KZG, the #1 Custom ProLine, has released its list of the World's Top 100 ClubFitters for 2008.  The announcement was made Jan. 15th at the 2nd annual IPAC (International Professional Association of ClubFitters) Expo in Orlando, Fla. The honor is designed to identify those professionals who possess the skill, integrity, business ingenuity and passion required to enhance the clubfitting profession and offer golfers the very best clubfitting experience and results.

“The Top 100 ClubFitters represent the best in their field, and we are proud to recognize them,” said Jennifer King, president of KZG. “They offer the very best custom clubfitting to touring professionals as well as to amateur golfers of every skill level.  By virtue of their talent and dedication, the Top 100 raise the bar for the clubfitting profession worldwide and help grow the game by offering golfers enhanced play and enjoyment through better performing equipment.”

This year’s winners hail from 23 countries around the globe.  The Top 100 ClubFitters range from small shops serving rural areas to large operations doing extensive business with multiple fitters, instructors and hitting bays. All represent the élite of the profession.

An independent panel of industry experts determined the criteria necessary to be considered a top clubfitting professional, focusing on what is expected in a bona fide fitting. The panel of experts included club designers Clay Long and Art Chou; Gene Parente, president of Golf Laboratories, Inc.; Steve Benzin, KZG’s Director of Fitting and Education; Kim Braly, world-renowned shaft designer (formerly with Rifle); Dr. Christian Reichardt, author and doctor of sports medicine and fitness; and Ken Starr, CEO of Zelocity, Inc., a manufacturer of golf launch monitors. The panel’s identified criteria were weighted and used for evaluation of the applicants.
