Mitchell® Golf Equipment Institute Combines Shaft Performance Schools

Soon to Come! – Shaft Performance Schools

Mitchell® Golf Equipment Institute announced today the consolidation of its two shaft performance schools into one. The Shaft Performance Technology School and the True Temper® “Gold Certified” Shaft Fitting Specialist School have been combined. The 3-day Shaft Performance Technology with True Temper® Gold Certification School makes its debut November 17-19. Students receive two certificates of training as a Shaft Performance Technology Specialist and True Temper® “Gold Certified” Shaft Fitting Specialist.

This new school explains how the golf shaft improves shot making. Students learn advanced frequency matching, frequency gradients, proper tip trimming, profiling, spine/flo methods, and how to determine shaft flexes & compare shaft specifications from one manufacturer to another. Students learn how to frequency-tune Black Gold shafts from a master blank. Attendees take home $280 worth of Black Gold Shafts free to sell to their first customers.

Ed Mitchell, President of Mitchell® Golf Equipment Institute states, “Club performance technicians must know and understand the performance specifications of all the different shafts that are available. Golfers want club performance repair upgrades just like tour professionals receive every week on tour. This new school teaches the methods for determining those performance specifications and how to apply them for the best fit.”
