NORTH HOLLYWOOD, Calif. (Jan. 13, 2012) - KZG, the #1 Custom ProLine™, is pleased to announce the “World's Top 100 ClubFitters” for 2012. Each year KZG honors 100 professionals possessing superior skill, integrity and passion for clubfitting. This is the seventh year in a row KZG has honored the elite of the industry’s clubfitters.


“Industry leaders concur that there are only around 500 truly qualified Professional Fitters in the entire world, clearly insufficient to service the golfing public,” reports Jennifer King, President of KZG. “There are tens of thousands of sales reps and teachers who claim to be professional fitters, yet fall far short of what a bona fide professional can actually do for a golfer. A real fitter is also part psychologist, engineer and swing master. They don’t sell clubs; they sell game improvement. We salute this year’s Top 100 who have raised the bar for their profession, have unsurpassed integrity and skill and passion for the game and for all who play it. “


This year’s honorees hail from 20 countries around the world, including 36 from the UK/Europe, 37 from the United States, 13 from Canada, 7 from Asia, 6 from Australia, and 1 from Africa. Winners range from small shops serving rural areas to large performance centers with multiple fitters and instructors.
