Callaway Tour Fit Van to visit the Golden Horseshoe July 22

Ernie Els and Phil Mickelson have access to the Callaway Golf tour fit van on a weekly basis. Area golfers can receive that same pro treatment July 22 when Callaway’s tour fit van visits the Golden Horseshoe Golf Club in Williamsburg. Callaway Golf tour van technicians will evaluate golfers’ swings using the same state-of-the-art fitting equipment they use for tour pros. Golfers need only bring their swing to experience one of the perks of being a tour pro – custom-fitted clubs.

During the tour fit van experience, technicians will custom fit each golfer’s swing to the precise driver, irons and wedge combination using Callaway Golf’s Callaway fitting system and TrackMan Launch monitor. Once individual specs are determined, the tour fit van team can build the clubs on-site for same-day delivery. Visit Tour Fit Van Experience to learn more about what happens at a tour fit van experience.

Any golfer who visits the Callaway Golf tour fit van July 22 can play the Golden Horseshoe Green Course at the special rate of $59. Any golfer who tries out a Callaway club will receive a free sleeve of Callaway golf balls, and orders for Callaway golf clubs placed that day will receive a discount of 25 percent. The Golden Horseshoe is located at 401 S. England St. in Williamsburg. To make an appointment for a personalized club fitting, call the Golden Horseshoe at 757-220-7696.
