He has been around for years and was one of the first to use Trackman with an indoor hitting area.
He's a little flakey to talk to, but knows his shit.
He has sooo many golf stories, I just enjoy listening to them.
His son is one of the premier players in St Lou.

John Kelly is the St. Louis expert and leader specializing in professional golf club fitting for golfers serious about wanting to improve their games.

With 30 years experience, John has been “the person to see” in the Greater Saint Louis Area and Midwest to get your clubs fitted to perform for your swing.  He has worked with and earned the respect of golf tour professionals and amateur golfers of all abilities.

GolfTec  is now local along with Club Champion St. Louis downtown and Clayton area.
Local Private clubs have some very good fitting stations now.

I'm not sure who is using Trackman for fitting at clubs, but this year at our Demo Day, all manufactures showed up with them.
We had all the big boyz, Ping, Taylor Made, Callaway, Titleist, Cobra and they are all more willing to work with members on fitting their product.

There are some very good fitters at Golf Galaxy, but they only spec and order major brands.

There is an old guy at the Falls Golf course who has a shop at the range who has been building clubs for years.
Most of the older guys I used to deal with have passed on or retired.

One of our assistant pros who now teaches in Chesterfield Valley at the range may have more current info.
His name is Christian Becker, he's now with Golftex. https://www.golftec.com/golf-lessons/st-louis/chesterfield

If your looking for a custom set of irons or woods, I have a friend in Colorado who still builds clubs.

Also, @WUTiger, any recommendations?

@Club Rat pretty well covers it for the greater StL area.

OP @ShawnieD , since you live in Palmyra, you might consider driving south to Columbia, MO.

Poe Golf http://www.poegolf.com/ is run by Richard Poe, former MU golf coach and onetime pro at Country Club of Missouri. He fitted my brother with a mixed set of TM woods and Ping irons. His play has really improved since fitting.

I have talked to a couple of Poe's assistants at St. Louis area events, and they really know the ins and outs of golf clubs and how they work... or why they don't.

Something to consider...
