Titleist Ambassador Phillip Price tests out the new Titleist National Fitting Centre

Titleist’s new state-of-the-art National Fitting Centre is to open at Celtic Manor Resort, Wales. As a market-leader in custom-fitting, Titleist utilises golf’s most advanced fitting tools and teams of highly-skilled fitters to provide a global network of club fitting services.

This network ensures that serious golfers around the world can access a Titleist club fitting service and underlines Titleist’s philosophy of ‘Better Fit. Better Game.’  Building on the success of Titleist’s National Fitting Centres in the UK and Ireland, at St. Ives Golf Club in Cambridgeshire, Kings Acre Golf Club near Edinburgh and the G.U.I National Academy at Carton House near Dublin, Titleist is further expanding its fitting network with the announcement of a National Fitting Centre based at The Celtic Manor Resort in South Wales.

Opening to the public on October 31st, the new facility will be run by Celtic Manor’s highly-trained teaching professionals who will provide guests with the same fitting processes, equipment and technology that have helped the likes of Titleist Brand Ambassadors Rory McIlroy, Matteo Manassero and Adam Scott claim victories across the worldwide professional tours this year.

“The introduction of a Titleist National Fitting Centre at The Celtic Manor Resort is a hugely exciting addition to our club fitting network. Celtic Manor is a world renowned golf destination and we are hugely proud of our association and delighted to be opening our latest National Fitting Centre at this superb venue.” commented Richard Temple, Titleist Golf Club Product and Fitting Manager.

“The PGA qualified Fitting Technicians at Celtic Manor have been trained by experts in the field of club fitting, including master wedge craftsman Bob Vokey, and their knowledge, coupled with the technology at their disposal, will ensure that each and every visitor to the new facility will experience the benefits of professionally fitted Titleist golf club products,” continued Temple.

Each of the Titleist National Fitting Centres are fully equipped with state-of-the-art technology, an extensive range of the latest Titleist club product, including the 910 metals, 712 series irons and SM4 wedges, and array of shaft options. Each fitting for a 910 metal benefits from the innovative SureFit Tour technology, which allows for independent loft and lie adjustment, while fittings for the new 712 series irons, due for launch in mid-November, use an equally innovative, dual-angle SureFit hosel system that allows both interchangeable heads and shafts and for two different lie angles to be achieved from a single club-head.

Such Titleist-developed fitting technology helps to ensure a precise and efficient club fitting service for the player. Club fittings at the Titleist National Fitting Centres also utilise Trackman Pro™ launch monitors, which use radar technology to provide a complete statistical analysis of each shot. Trackman Pro™ has the capacity to analyse the club at impact, the ball flight down range and provide a whole host of invaluable statistics that the Titleist fitters can use to determine the ideal club specification for the player.

A host of Titleist Brand Ambassadors have demonstrated the Titleist ‘Better Fit. Better Game.’ philosophy in recent weeks having used precisely fit Titleist club products for tournament success across the worldwide professional tours. Rickie Fowler, Kevin Na, Bryce Molder, Michael Hoey and Lee Slattery are just some of the full-line Titleist players to have topped leaderboards with Titleist products.

Most recently, Ben Crane trusted Titleist equipment throughout his bag to win the PGA Tour’s McGladrey Classic and become the sixteenth different Titleist Ambassador to claim victory on the PGA Tour in 2011. Proof not only of the quality and performance of Titleist products but also a clear indication as to the importance of correctly fitted golf club product.

Bookings for the Titleist National Fitting Centre at The Celtic Manor Resort are available on an appointment only basis on Mondays and Thursdays. Bookings for all of the Titleist National Fitting Centres across the UK and Ireland should be made via your local PGA professional or approved Titleist stockist.
