The days of just buying clubs off the floor in your favorite sporting goods store are over.

These days when you make the investment in new golf clubs, the way to get clubs so they work the best for you and your game, is to be fitted.

Okay, where to go and how to make sure it’s done right. Chicago area golfers have a new option in town that takes fitting to a new level.

It’s called True Spec Golf. True Spec is not new to golf, just to the Chicago area. They have opened their first Chicago facility in north suburban Highland Park, located on Old Skokie Road above the Tesla car dealership.
