FORT WALTON BEACH, FL Edwin Watts Golf Shops, LLC, one of the world’s largest specialty golf retailers with over 90 retail locations, recently announced that two of its premier locations, the Turkey Lake Road store in Orlando, Fla., and the Brook Highland Shopping Center store in Birmingham, Ala., have been recognized by Golf Digest as two of America’s 100 Best Clubfitters.

The esteemed Edwin Watts Golf Shops were among a group of 500 clubfitters considered for this prestigious recognition. The process for determining America’s 100 Best Clubfitters is based on the following criteria: (1) The location must be open to the public, (2) There must be access to clubs made by top manufacturers, and (3) The fitter must be nominated by one of the following: one of Golf Digest’s 900–plus raters of America’s 100 Greatest Golf Courses, golf association executives, top teachers or other industry sources.
