Tustin native honored in national golf magazine
REED CITY — An Osceola County native has been named one of the top 100 custom golf fitters in the United States by Golf Digest.
Adrianne Danzeisen Clor and her husband Kenneth own Clor’s Outpost in Osseo and she is one of three in Michigan to make the list.
“It’s pretty exciting. It’s the highest honor we could get as golf shop owners,” said Clor.
Clor grew up on a dairy farm in Tustin and is a graduate of Pine River High School’s class of 1979. She participated in basketball and track during high school, but did not take up golf until she attended Michigan State University and began dating her husband.
Although she graduated with a degree in animal science and has worked as a chemist, golf is her passion.
“I love golf,” Clor said. “It’s a lot like life. If you hit a bad shot, it’s about what happens next.”
In 1991, the couple purchased their business, which used to be a miniature golf course and driving range. Ever since, clubfitting and providing a one-on-one experience is what Clor offers.
She participates in training courses with a variety of golf club manufacturing companies to keep her knowledge fresh and growing. At Clor’s Outpost, a computer is able to help her determine what club best fits the golfer. She caters to people of all ages and budgets.
Clor said she loves working with her customers, who are traveling from outside Michigan for her services. The job is something she looks at as more of a way to give back to the golfer and provide a personal experience, so the customer will be able to improve their game. When customers return, she can remember the club specifications, if not the person’s name as well.
In addition to being named one of the top 100 custom golf fitters, Clor also has been named regional club fitter two times by PING and was twice named among the top rated club fitters by Callaway.
She also served on a committee for the United States Golf Association for about 10 years.
