Fitting Days & a 2021 Equipment Overview

Apr 20, 2021Emily Rohdy

Blog Post By: Emily Rohdy, PGA Head Professional

With every new golf season comes new golf equipment! We are proud to announce that due to popular demand, we have brought back our Fitting Days for the 2021 golf season. We have some big brands visiting Bucks Run this year including: PXG, Callaway, TaylorMade, Titleist, and Srixon/Cleveland/XXIO.  

What are Fitting Days?

Fitting days allow you try out the latest and greatest in golf equipment, all while receiving specialized one-on-one time with that company’s representative. What does that mean for you? You are getting fit professionally by the people who know their equipment the best and do this for a living. It also means you get to hit on a Trackman or another sophisticated launch monitor, which will track all your swing specs like club head speed, ball speed, smash factor, launch angle, attack angle, and so much more.

Most professional fitting days typically cost a pretty penny, with the average fitting appointment costing at minimum $100 or sometimes more. However, Bucks Run Golf Club and their Sales Representatives provide this amazing service for FREE! Just call the Golf Shop and we will help you schedule your personalized fitting day appointment with your favorite company.

PXG: Saturday, May 8th from 9:00AM-3:00PM

For those looking for the ultimate custom club fitting experience, there is none better than PXG. Clubs are never sold off the shelf! It is PXG’s motto that every golfer’s clubs should be tailored exactly to their unique swing for optimum performance.

For 2021, PXG has just released their new line of GEN4 Drivers, Fairway Woods, Hybrids, and irons. Their newest releases include: 0811 GEN4 Driver, 0341X GEN4 Fairway Woods, 0317X GEN4 Hybrids, 0311 GEN4 Irons, and their 2021 0211 Irons. All the new GEN4 models claim to push the limits when it comes to explosive distance, incredible sound and feel, unbelievable forgiveness, and their drop-dead sexy looks.

Callaway: Saturday, May 15th from 9:00AM-3:00PM

Callaway has done it again; this year, with their world renown Epic lineup. The staple of the lineup, the Epic Speed Driver, creates a profound impact on driver technology and performance. The new Epic Speed lineup includes the new Jailbreak A.I. Speed frame which enhances horizontal and torsional stability, to increase ball speed from the heel of the face to the toe.

Callaway’s Iron lineup this year is the familiar Apex line. This year, the Apex’s deliver extraordinary level of forged performance and craftsmanship that they claim has never been done. They are the first forged iron designed with A.I. for faster ball speeds, more forgiveness, and improved spin consistency.

TaylorMade: Saturday, May 22nd from 9:00AM-3:00PM

Toney Covey has brought even more Formula 1 racing influence to the new TaylorMade lineup. This year, starting with the drivers, the SIM 2 and SIM 2 Max have no shortage of speed or forgiveness. The tungsten weighting allows for extra forgiveness and increased club head speed for golfers of all handicaps.

Reconstructed so you can swing away. The sleek design of the p790 irons are back, along with the new SIM 2 iron lineup. This year’s SIM irons are offering the best forgiveness to date, and will not sacrifice any distance.

Titleist: Saturday, June 5th from 9:00AM-3:00PM

Titleist's approach to drivers is uniquely shaped by a single, undeniable certainty. When the moment of truth arrives, you either believe in what you bring to the tee…or you don’t. Titleist promises to deliver. At Titleist, they’re committed to helping you play your best golf. Learn from their world-class teachers/fitters and get ready to enjoy the best golf of your life! Finding the right equipment for your game is one of the fastest ways to improve, and with the new TSi driver lineup and the famed T-series Irons, Titleist can get you playing the golf you’re meant to be playing.

Srixon/Cleveland: Saturday, June 12th from 10:00AM-3:00PM

2021 is a huge year for Srixon and Cleveland. Srixon has spent a considerable amount of time on the details of their new ZX family lineup. Their motto this year when it comes to their drivers, fairways, and hybrids is to “focus your energy.” Ordinary drivers flex in the face, but the Rebound Frame adds a second layer of flexibility for even more recoil at impact. This new frame claims to be faster on every strike -- especially on center-face impacts.

Cleveland also is bringing an exceptional new line of wedges to the floor with this year’s Golf Digest Hot List Gold Star lineup for 2021, including their RTX Zipcore, CBX2, and CBX Full-Face wedges. They rebuilt the RTX Zipcore from the inside out. It is comprised of a low-density material that provides an inside-to-out solution that’s elegant in form and function, with unprecedented results. By replacing heavy steel with a lightweight core, the Zipcore repositions mass for a kid-in-a candy-shop levels of design freedom. The result? More consistency across the board with better spin, distance, and feel, control, that keeps getting better and better!
