International Clubmakers Guild® to Hold Florida Chapter Meeting – Open to the Golf Industry – in Daytona Beach, FL
 
 
GREENWICH, Connecticut (September 3, 2016) – International Clubmakers Guild® (ICG) (www.clubfittersguild.org), golf’s only clubfitting and clubmaking organization that is owned and run by its members, will hold its second annual Florida Chapter meeting Sept. 18-19 at LPGA International, in Daytona Beach, Fla. 
 
“The Florida Chapter is vibrant and growing,” said Jacques Intriere, president of International Clubmakers Guild. “Clubfitters from all parts of the state will gather for this meeting, which will offer a full schedule of presentations and educational workshops.”
 
ICG members Jerry Howard, president of the Florida ICG Chapter and the 2015 ICG Southeast Clubmaker of the Year, and Bill Marshall, vice president, are organizing the event, which is open to ICG members as well as to non-members. It is requested that participants be involved in the golf industry in some capacity, although it is not required that they be engaged in clubfitting or clubmaking as a full-time enterprise. ICG members will receive Continuing Professional Education points for attending. 
 
In addition to business and dinner meetings, the agenda will include sessions on: swing science, products and fitting systems; single length clubs; MOI/MBI usage; status of the golf industry; marketing, social media and websites; and shaft technology. LPGA instructor Diane Garron will offer some commentary. Optional golf also is part of the program. 
 
ICG members fit and make golf clubs for players of all skill levels, from amateurs who want the best equipment for their games to the most accomplished tour players worldwide. 
 
In fact, the winner of the 2016 Ricoh British Open, played July 28-31 at Woburn Golf and Country Club, in Milton Keynes, England, had her clubs and shafts fit by one ICG member and her clubs built by another ICG member.
