Washington Golf Outlet Mall Site of Major Putter Fitting Event on East Coast

ARLINGTON, VA--(Marketwire - June 2, 2009) - The Washington Golf Outlet Mall (washingtongolf.com), the Washington, DC area's largest golf retailer, announced today that the company will hold one of the largest Putter Fitting events on the East Coast this Saturday, June 6th from 12-3 pm.

"Custom fitting has become an expected part of the equation when purchasing golf equipment," states Randy Ramsey, GM-Washington Golf Outlet Mall. But most often this fitting process only extends to the driver and iron categories. "We have long realized the importance of custom fitting," Ramsey adds. "It is time to bring these types of solutions to the putting game, which is certainly the most integral part of lowering scores."

The Putter Fitting event will feature TOMI (Total Optimal Motion Instructor), an easy to use training system designed to support professional instructors in understanding the golfer's putting stroke. The TOMI system, as featured on the Golf Channel with Hank Haney, captures and analyzes the fundamental mechanics of each player's stroke and assists the instructor in making recommendations regarding the stroke and possible equipment revisions.

Coordinating the instruction for the event will be PGA Teaching Pro, Kirk Lucas. Mr. Lucas has assisted several tour players, most notably three time PGA Tour winner Jonathan Byrd. "I have continually searched for training methods to help my students improve their overall performance, the TOMI putter fitting system is a tremendous tool in evaluating and correcting small fluctuations in the putting stroke."

Adding to the event, the Odyssey/Callaway Tech Rep will be on-site to assist in the fitting process. With over twenty models available, the industry leading Odyssey putter line will allow each golfer to find that exact putter that optimizes each player's unique putting stroke.
