A Titleist club fitting at the Jim McLean Golf Center in Fort Worth, Texas, featuring one of the country’s most sophisticated fitting and practice facilities, can lead a golfer in several directions.
The destination, however, is always the same.
“I make sure every player I spend time with goes home with the proper equipment, the proper fit and the confidence necessary to play their best,” says Kyle Cronkright, Director of Club Fitting at the Jim McLean Golf Center-Texas, one of five Titleist Regional Fitting Centers within the Titleist Fitting Network.
One of the keys to shooting lower scores is being able to trust your equipment on each and every shot. Cronkright, a PGA Professional and Titleist authorized club fitter, specializes in guiding you to that point, relying on years of fitting experience and mentorship from some of the game’s best fitters and teachers.
“Every golfer has certain needs when it comes to their clubs and set make-up,” says Cronkright, who has worked with elite players from the junior level to the PGA Tour. “There’s no such thing as one-size fits all.”
And that goes for club fittings, as well.
“Some players want a very technical fitting, some players want it based more on feel and what their eyes see. Others want a mixture of both,” says Cronkright. “I like to let the player determine where the fitting goes.”
The Jim McLean Golf Center, featuring what the facility calls “30 acres of endless shotmaking possibilities,” allows Cronkright a unique level of flexibility that is a perfect fit for his fitting style.
At first arrival to the property, you are greeted by a member of the Jim McLean staff and given a tour of the facility. Some of the sights include: The 14,000 square-foot performance center featuring five hitting bays with swing analysis equipment and an HD full-swing simulator; 50,000 square-foot short game area; lighted driving range; and Legends Scoring Nine, a challenging 9-hole layout that can be played as both a par-3 course (some hole can be stretched to par-4s) and practice course.
