New USGolfTV Fitting Segment Featuring Austad’s Golf

03/22/2018

We at USGolfTV are excited to announce that we are partnering with Austad’s Golf to bring you more game-changing information on our TV show.

In addition to the swing tips and golf news you’re used to getting, USGolfTV will now feature a segment on club fitting. This new segment will be hosted by Austad’s Golf, the foremost experts on fittings in the Upper Midwest.

This new feature enables us to provide our viewers with a well-rounded understanding of what makes for a solid golf game. As Ryan Austad, President of Austad’s Golf, explains, “You really need three things for your golf game to reach its potential: great instruction, practice, and clubs that are fit to the specifications of your size, swing, and ability.”

USGolfTV has long provided viewers with insights and practice tips from top golf instructors. Now, by partnering with the experts at Austad’s Golf, we will help you ensure that you have the right clubs to play your best.

About Our Partner

Austad’s Golf has been a leader in the golf industry for more than fifty years. The family-run business that began as a golf catalogue in 1963 has grown into a trusted company with nine retail stores in the Upper Midwest. Austad’s Golf is known for quality, exceptional customer service, and professional-grade custom fittings.

The Master Fitters at Austad’s Golf are truly some of the best you’ll find, having been to fitting schools all over the country. They have performed hundreds of successful fittings, treating the process as part science, part art. By taking the time to communicate with clients and using state-of-the-art software, these Master Fitters determine the best club fit based on both the feel for the golfer and the data generated from their specific swing.

Customer service is central to the Austad’s Golf philosophy. The company is even introducing a new custom fitting experience that offers amateur golfers the tour pro experience. Austad’s new Tour Fitting process is conducted in a private fitting studio equipped with a stocked fridge, a flat screen TV, and comfortable seating. Golfers can expect one-on-one attention from a Master Fitter with no time limit. We do fittings using the most advanced technology and offer literally hundreds of shaft options.

“A Tour Pro’s game is their livelihood, and therefore their fittings are treated with attention, respect, and care,” says Ryan Austad. “We bring that same level of attentiveness to our customers.”

It is this tour-level expertise and customer care that we are excited to bring into our USGolfTV programming.

The Benefit of a Club Fitting Segment

As USGolfTV’s Tyler Prins puts it, this segment is an opportunity to help golfers understand “why we need to get a fitting instead of just buying the most expensive driver, thinking that’s going to fix our game.”

Many golfers think of a custom fitting as an expensive and exclusive process only necessary for pros and touring amateurs. The theory goes that a more casual golfer only needs a quality club that feels right.

Both USGolfTV and Austad’s Golf look forward to clearing up these misconceptions and demystifying the club fitting process. This new segment aims to explain the many considerations that go into club fittings. Moreover, it explains why having the wrong club may be adding strokes to your score. By sharing this in-depth information with our viewers, we hope to make the whole notion of a custom club fitting feel less foreign.

What to Expect

According to Ryan Austad, the new fitting segment “will give the 30,000-foot overview on why each part of a custom fitting is important.” From there, the Austad’s team plans to “dive a bit deeper into each subject matter.  We can teach golfers the tweaks we can make to golf clubs to enable players to play better.  Ultimately, they can have more fun.”

There will be eight club fitting segments from Austad’s airing over eight episodes of USGolfTV. Over the course of those episodes, viewers can look forward to such topics as:

  • Selecting the right model driver or iron set
  • Ensuring you have the correct shaft
  • Uncovering the proper shaft length and club lie angle
  • Fitting your grip
  • Properly gaping your clubs for distance
  • Fitting a player to the right ball

The topic of club fitting is more complex than most golfers realize.  And it is an aspect of the game that carries more influence than you might expect.

Austad’s fitting segment will offer in-depth information from Master Fitters. With their guidance, we can help you see your swing in a whole new light. Custom equipment alone may not be a magic fix for a suffering golf game. However, the right club will help you make the absolute most of the skills you develop through instruction and practice. Austad’s Golf and USGolfTV will show you how.
