Did anyone see Bettinardi on Instagram? It looked like they were fitting the Cubs. Does anyone have any insight of what's going on?

The pictures looked awesome. Would love to be able to go into the new clubhouse. Had to be a great experience and the players are getting some great equipment for the off season!

Wonder if they'll do a special headcover, too.  They've done a couple Blackhawks covers in the past that came out incredible.

Would be insanely funny if he intentionally fit them all with the wrong loft, lie, length, and stroke style putter - just to support the south side team!

I'm disappointed that he did work for the Blackhawks.. Now he's doing fittings for the Cubs even though he's a WS fan?

Sounds like someone is a bandwagon fan..

Just kidding! lol

It looked like the whole squad was having a good time with it! It's cool to see those guys in a different light. I wonder if it's going to be a custom putter or they were just fitting the guys

I sure hope it's a custom putter. I'd love to hang one of those in my den!

I'd guess customs for the players, and the potential for a Cubs putter to The Hive.  A lot of Cubs fans out on Chicago golf courses who would go nuts for that item...
