Club Champion Expands To 45,000+ Hittable Combinations

New partnerships and expansions bring custom fitter to a new milestone

WILLOWBROOK, IL – To better serve its customers, the nation’s #1 club fitter is now offering clubs from Ben Hogan Golf Equipment and Sacks Parente along with expanded offerings from Vega, Miura and PXG. These new additions, along with new releases and existing offerings, brings the total number of hittable head and shaft combinations to more than 45,000.

Already the #1 fitter in the country for top golf brands, Club Champion has now upped the ante to include thousands of additional combinations. “It was a no-brainer to us to bring in brands like Ben Hogan and to work closely with others like PXG,” said Nick Sherburne, Club Champion founder. “We pride ourselves on finding the perfect match for each golfer, and these new and revamped partnerships allow us to stand by that promise.”

Previously operating under a direct-to-consumer model, Ben Hogan Golf Equipment recently launched the 2020 Club Fitters and Builders Program, where accredited club fitters and builders can purchase Ben Hogan club heads directly for use in their custom club making businesses. Club Champion is the first national partner in this program.

Similarly, Sacks Parente putters will now be available in all 70+ Club Champion studios nationwide. According to the putter company, their vision is to deliver the most scientifically perfect putting instruments to help golfers make more putts. Several Sacks Parente designs have been put in play by professionals on multiple tours.

Vega Golf, a Japanese forged club maker, will also be working with Club Champion to service the American market. Some of their offerings, like the Vega Mizar Tour irons, will only be available to U.S. golfers through the custom club fitter.

Club Champion has also expanded their partnership with Miura, the Japan-based forged club maker. Previously only select models had been available in certain locations, but the expanded relationship will allow for more comprehensive offerings in all Club Champion locations nationwide.

Lastly, going forward, Club Champion will be one of the few retailers in the country to offer PXG club heads for fitting. The club fitter has historically had access to many PXG offerings, and now they are one of the only custom club fitters to have an official relationship with the club brand.
