The Full Fujikura Fitting Experience in partnership with Club Champion & PluggedIn Golf

Vista, Calif. (June 27, 2017) – Through our partners PluggedinGolf.com, Five lucky golfers had the amazing opportunity to experience an expert fitting from Club Champion, a 2017 Top 100 Club Fitter as rated by Golf Digest.  These golfers came in to their fittings with a variety of swings and gamer shafts, but all would leave with a Fujikura shaft that improved their drives. The results were all very positive for these five guys, some gaining as many as 45 yards being properly fit and reducing their spin. The experts at Club Champion fit three of the five golfers into the new ATMOS Tour Spec Shaft (with one golfer in each of the three flight options, one blue, one red, and one black).  The other two golfers were fit into the Fujikura PRO Tour Spec, and the PRO XLR8.

“The Blue ATMOS had the most consistent results, the lowest dispersion, the highest ball speed, and longest carry”


The Results :

After testing their new fittings, all 5 golfers quickly saw huge gains in their driving performance. Some golfers fittings including trying different driver heads to reduce spin or improve accuracy. The results of these fittings for driver shafts and driver heads (in some cases) proved to yield impressive results. The improvements were of 9, 15, 16, 29, and 46 yards off the tee respectively.  Yes, 46 yards. Combined, they had an average driving distance gain of 23 yards.  Even though driving distance is important, all of the players also saw major improvements to their driver accuracy with lower dispersion.  Two of the players cut their offline averages by 20 yards.  Another player compared his previous driver shaft where he was hitting the ball 11 yards offline on average.  After being fit into a new Fujikura shaft, the same player was driving less than 3 yards away from the center line.  All of these numbers are not only a testament to the high quality shaft line up offered by Fujikura, but the crucial importance of being professionally fit for golf shafts.
