NORMAN, Okla. – True Temper Sports, the number one golf shaft manufacturer in the world, announced today the launch of its fall College Fit Tour with the Golf Coaches Association of America (GCAA). The tour will be kicked off with events at the 76th Annual New England Intercollegiate Golf Association Championship and The Gifford Collegiate Championship.
Through the College Fit Tour, True Temper will bring the professional tour fitting experience to the college players. During the fall season, the company’s engineers, sales staff and tour reps will be on-hand at selected college tournaments using launch-monitor fittings to educate players about shaft technology and ultimately lower their scoring averages.
“Each week, we are out on the PGA, Nationwide and European tours making sure the best players in the world are fit with the right equipment for their game,” says Ben Hough, sales program manager for True Temper Sports. “Working with collegiate golfers through The College Fit Tour is the next logical step for us as we try to educate players at each level of the game about the benefits of custom fitting. Supporting teams from all divisions and all regions of the country is our goal and attending an East Coast and a West Coast event is a perfect way for us to kick off our College Fit Tour.”
At College Fit Tour stops, True Temper will also have demo clubs from all major equipment manufacturers available for testing and will work with local Performance Fitting Centers for fittings and installations. The first two events of the tour will be held at the NEIGA Championship Oct. 18-19 at The Captains Club in Brewster, Mass., and The Gifford Collegiate Championship at CordeValle Golf Club in San Martin, Calif., Nov. 8-10. The College Fit Tour will make additional stops during the spring.
