Club Champion Launches Military + First Responder Program

WILLOWBROOK, IL – Club Champion is celebrating Law Enforcement and Military Appreciation Month by introducing their Military + First Responder program! Military and first responder personnel including police, firefighters, and EMS can now receive 10% off of Club Champion-built clubheads, shafts, and grips at all Club Champion and TXG locations in North America when proof of employment or veteran status is presented.

“We love our frontline workers — we even have veterans and former first responders among the ranks in our stores who have chosen a new career in golf,” said Nick Sherburne, Club Champion’s founder. “May is Law Enforcement and Military Appreciation Month, so I can’t think of a better time to introduce this new program to golfers of all experience levels.”

Golfers have always been able to visit local pros or retailers who have one or two fitting carts provided by club manufacturers but with Club Champion’s guided approach, golfers can mix and match across brands to determine their ideal combinations. Ranked by Golf Digest as one of the 100 Best Club Fitters ten years running, Club Champion is the only fitter in the country to offer 65,000 interchangeable head and shaft combinations at all locations.

“Many players think they aren’t good enough to be custom fit, but we’ve participated in multiple third-party studies that showed higher handicappers saw the biggest gains,” said Sherburne. “Some of these golfers shaved as many as ten strokes per round.”

Using cutting-edge technology, Club Champion master fitters are able to analyze a golfer’s swing and match them to clubs that maximize their strengths. On average, golfers hit 20+ yards further off the tee after a Club Champion fitting, with 12+ yards of improved dispersion. If the golfer in your life is serious about the sport, or is even just getting started, this game-changing experience will give them insight into their own swing mechanics and enhance their experience on the course.

To take advantage of the Military + First Responder Program discount, the promo code ‘FIRST’ must be used at the time of booking. The 10% discount applies to clubheads, shafts, and grips purchased and built through Club Champion OR to clubheads only for OEM builds. Other terms apply.
