“The Titleist 917 National Fitting Day is a hugely exciting initiative which we are thrilled to be rolling out with our Titleist Fitting Partners,” said Chris Beaumont, Golf Club Marketing Manager, Titleist.

“Golfers across the country will have the opportunity to get fitted into our 917 line of metals, and experience for themselves, the performance of 917 which has seen a number of Titleist tour professionals worldwide lift trophies this season.”

What happens during a Titleist Thursday?

As well as improved Active Recoil Channel 2.0 and Radial Speed Face 2.0 on the 917 driver comes SureFit CG, a weight port in the back of the head that allows the swing weight, launch, spin and shot shape to be dialed in even further. It is positioned at a 30-degree angle to clubface, to keep spin levels low when in the fade position while maintaining forgiveness.

Advanced booking is required by phoning the venue directly.

Under the watchful eye of Titleist’s team of expert fitting technicians, golfers will be fitted alongside some of the best players in the world on the driving range at Wentworth, as the competition for the BMW PGA Championship crown nears its conclusion.

All lucky winners will receive a day-pass for either Saturday or Sunday to watch all of the action, before being invited onto the range to enjoy a custom-fit session with a Titleist Product Specialist, who will help find the perfect Titleist 917 Driver or Fairway combination of head, loft, shaft, Surefit® Hosel and Surefit® CG for their game.

They will also undergo a golf ball fitting to find out which of Titleist’s golf ball models is best suited to their game.

Arguably the most anticipated fitting event of Titleist’s comprehensive 2017 schedule - including Titleist Thursdays and Titleist Fitting Days throughout the UK & Ireland – The Ultimate Fit will also run at this year’s Dubai Duty Free Irish Open, Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open and British Masters supported by Sky Sports.

Chris Beaumont, Titleist Golf Club Marketing Manager, said: “At Titleist, we know how important it is for dedicated golfers to find the best-performing golf clubs for their games, and so it is with great excitement we are launching The Ultimate Fit at the European Tour’s flagship event."
