Which club category (driver, woods, irons, wedges, or putter) do you feel benefits the most from a fitting?

With the added weight of the connection hardware that enables fitters to quickly swap shafts, how does Club Champion fit for swing weight in instances where a player may be better suited to a lighter swing weight set up?  Does the additional weight of the connection hardware preclude testing clubs at lower swing weights at standard length or longer?

Is it counter-intuitive for a high-handicapper to get fit, as they will (hopefully) improve their swing much more dramatically than a low-handicapper would?

I saw on IG that you'll be opening a new location in SLC soon.

When do you plan on opening and how do you plan on making a splash and immediately start to compete here?

Looking forward to the new location.

How are you handling combo set fittings in irons?  For example the Mizuno mp 18 line (Fli Hi/mb) or TM 700 series(790/730).  How does CC determine where to blend the sets and mitigate any gapping issues using only a 6 or 7 iron as a baseline.

My local club champion is missing some shafts that I would love to try.  Do your folks have the ability to get shafts in from other locations before a scheduled fitting?

Thanks!

Since you mostly deal with amateurs who do not have consistent, repeatable swings, how much stock do you put into having a player being in "mid-season form" when doing a fitting?

How big of a role does "potential" play into a fitting? Do you side with fitting someone to maximize their current ability or fit them so that the clubs will perform even better when a golfer makes specific changes or improves their ability?

If you have a club fitting and club champion and are unsatisfied with the results can you bring it back in to get refitted or do you need to pay for another fitting? And how long do you have to get refitted from your original fitting date?

Do majority of clients come in with open minds or already have a preference towards one brand or another? do the fitters try and open up their minds to something they didn't consider before, or just try and work within the customers desired brand?

Is fine tuning of loft and lie angles included in the cost once a customer gets the opportunity to use their new clubs under real conditions and what happens if you are fitted for an iron set that does not interact well with real turf since you are fitted on artificial mats?

How many swings does an average driver fitting take?  Fatigue has to eventually set in,  as much as I would love to try as many head /shaft combos out,  there has to be a limit.

How's Florida fit into Club Champion's retail store expansion plans for next few years?  Tampa Bay market?

Too, has Club Champion considered doing joint stuff with other companies like dropping smaller Club Champion stores/fitting centers onto sites like Top Golf locations or other golf centers with high traffic real estate locations?

I have read of others experiences after their CC fitting. They were told by their fitter that CC has access to the best driver heads from manufacturers so they should order from CC. Is this true? Do you guys get access to heads with more accurate lofts, etc?

What part of the fitting process is most overlooked or most surprising? ie. fitting for grip size, or outside fitting due to course conditions (sweeper vs digger), or something of the like.
