The awards salute those authorized Ping fitters who have demonstrated the highest commitment to custom fitting and the promotion of its benefits to golfers of all abilities.
Ping Chairman and CEO John A. Solheim said in a media statement that Ping offers its certified fitters a growing array of tools and software to dial in a more precise fit while making the process easy, cost-effective and convenient.
They include the Advanced Fitting System Interchangeable Fitting Cart; the iPING putter app; a new putter-fitting package, and both nFlight and nFlight Mobile fitting software.
Winners were chosen based on points earned across several criteria and disciplines, including custom orders, commitment to ongoing training, sustained sales growth, use of Pong tools and technologies, and support of the entire Ping product line.
