Get fitted for the clubs McIlroy uses

Fri, 21 Oct 2011

Titleist opens its latest National Fitting Centre at The Celtic Manor Resort on October 31. It joins similar operations at St. Ives Golf Club in Cambridgeshire, Kings Acre near Edinburgh and the National Academy at Carton House near Dublin.

The new Welsh facility will be run by Celtic Manor’s highly-trained teaching professionals providing customers with the same fitting processes, equipment and technology that have helped Titleist Brand Ambassadors Rory McIlroy, Matteo Manassero and Adam Scott claim victories around the world.

“The introduction of a Titleist Fitting Centre at The Celtic Manor Resort is an exciting addition to our network,” said Richard Temple, Titleist’s product and fitting manager. “The technicians at Celtic Manor have been trained by experts including master wedge craftsman Bob Vokey, and coupled with the technology at their disposal, their knowledge will ensure each visitor experiences the benefits of professionally fitted Titleist clubs.”

Each centre is equipped with state-of-the-art technology, the latest Titleist product, including the 910 metals, the latest 712 series irons and SM4 wedges, and an array of shaft options. Each fitting for a 910 metal benefits from the innovative SureFit Tour technology, allowing for loft and lie adjustment, while fittings for the new 712 series irons, due to launch next month use dual-angle SureFit hosel systems with interchangeable heads and shafts from a single clubhead.

Titleist also uses Trackman Pro launch monitors, to provide statistical analysis of each shot, including impact and ball flight.

Among the recent winners who have used Titleist’s ‘Better Fit, Better Game’ philosophy are Rickie Fowler, Michael Hoey, Lee Slattery and Ben Crane.

Golfers can make appointments through their PGA professional for a fitting at The Celtic Manor facility from Mondays and Thursdays.
