I went to the Golf Headquarters on West 21st and the guy did OK. The Dicks should do well but did not seem to have it together. The Golf Warehouse has gotten a swing analyzer recently but I have not seen them use it nor do I think they actually have a Pro on staff. I have gotten some bad news lately, would you be interested in some of my TM?

Normally I got to TGW but recently a friend and I went to Golf Galaxy in KC and the guy spend 2 hours fitting my friend. IMO next time I will go there instead.

Awesome.. I was hoping to find a glowing commentary about a wichita shop but I think KC might win out.

Hey drpanakos, I realized this post is a little dated but if you haven't been fitted yet I may have a great local option for you.  I was told that Flint Hills National does fitting for non-members, or at least they used to.  For what it's worth the guy who told me this was a scratch golfer who has been fitted multiple times and he told me that the head pro Rick Hatfield at Flint Hills was the best in the area.  Try emailing Rick and ask (can't hurt right).  His email address is:  Rick_Hatfield@flinthillsnational.com

Good Luck!

    • The video was not made for this discussion but a good chunk of it applies - just because you lift your heel off the ground doesn't mean you transfer 95% of your weight right. That's what you had to say in response to "I don't see how the left knee moves as a point of contention"? Again, the other thread existed because there was a huge myth out there about maintaining the same flex in the trail knee. No such myth or disparity exists re: the lead knee. Her head doesn't move off the ball much (well within the "steady head" idea, particularly with a driver), of course she has some tilt away from the target - because her hips don't sway back, and her weight shifts slightly to the right. Very little more than someone with a "modern" golf swing. It's not the only place there's "tension." And no, "loaded" may be a common word, but it can have a bunch of meanings. Your right leg is not the only thing that's "loaded" in ANY full swing in golf. Again, the wrists, the arm across the chest, the elbow, your ankles, your torso is turned… all can be "loaded." That's my point. One of 'em anyway. I haven't attacked whatever it is you're trying to talk about. I am, however, trying to suss out what it is you're trying to talk about. Because if it's "the left knee should be allowed, sometimes, to move back to the right" then I don't think you'll find much disagreement. You seem to think it's more than that, though. I don't think they did either, but the reasons they did it may have changed, or the amount of understanding we have of the golf swing has certainly changed, or what's important in the golf swing may have changed, or a bunch of other things. While writing this, @billchao answered that pretty well too, IMO. I guess, since I don't know what you're actually trying to convey here, I'll drop out for now until you can figure out what it is you're trying to say.
    • I could also just learn to perfect my draw as the article said. Become good/great at a certain shot type. 
    • From a fellow Sconnie, welcome to the site.  Many, many golfers play fades from a closed stance.  They are mostly pull slicers.  Basically your club face is just closed in relation to the path you are swinging on.  Maybe start a swing thread sometime if you want and someone can try and help.  Otherwise there is not really much anyone can tell you.  Hope you stick around and become involved in the site.
    • I disagree with this. Lots of fantastic golfers today don't use this move. People will adopt swing moves based on the style in a given era, regardless of whether they actually improve the swing or not. Think about reverse C finishes or square feet. Some top players play well despite certain trends, not because of them.
    • Thanks for the Welcome! That link was very helpful. I am just looking to improve and try new stuff with my game. I used to hit a big slice and over the years turned it into a draw. Just trying to elevate my game a little. I have a golf app called TheGrint and my handicap on there is an 8. Not sure if that takes into account slope and rating of courses.
