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:

Good Luck!

    • Here in USA, the KBS Tour S-flex shafts go for about $27 each new. If you get AP2 714 model, a 4-PW (?) reshaft would require $189 + tax to get shafts. Add $15 per club for shaft swap, and $10 per for new grips, and it's about $365 + tax. The KBS Tour stiff would be a few grams lighter and slightly stiffer than the S300 which often come as stock for the AP2. OTH is on target, consider this too.
    • I had a big long post going and lost it. The game of golf has only one set of rules per continent. The equipment used is well defined as far as legal, or illegal. The other sports you mentioned are dealing more with different age groups, physical sizes, and skill levels. Sure, golf has players of all ages, sizes, and skill levels too. Golf also has one set of rules, and one playing field with differences in length. Difference is baseball has tee ball. Football has different leagues based on age groups, and it's the same  for basketball. These sports cater to the needs of their players based on their age groups, and skill levels. This also includes the playing fields, and equipment they use. So in that respect I have no problem with what other sports are doing. 
    • 2/23: Feeling encouraged. I think I've got the (worse than usual) weight-shift/head movement mystery solved, or at least "identified" with a much better understanding of it (and a confirmation that it's always been there ). Getting better at the process I think...(1) noticing a problem but not knowing the why, (2) Slowing down and checking keys 1-3, and (3) "going back to my first lesson" so to speak by reviewing old video and my swing posts, and slowly "backing up" from the problem to try and identify the (chain of) cause(s). Today's practice: 10 minutes of good ol' wall drill, with original focus of getting my right hip away from the wall but with added attention paid to my upper body and (actually getting some) secondary axis tilt. Several slow and medium-speed reps of this pausing for feel and thinking about and practicing how I'd transition into the downswing. Then 6-8 minutes outside... Just two "reps" of 3-4 minutes slow-motion back- and downswings (hip, axis tilt, weight shift (and resulting proper better club path ) and then an easy-swing full shot with my 56o. So I only hit two shots and both were perfect, high draws.
    • Cobra Bio Cell + set at 15 degrees I am very confident with this club.  My 4 iron goes about 190 and my 3h goes 200-210.  Anything more than that (in the 220-230 range) is this club.  I have hit some very accurate shots with it and feel very comfortable with it.  In the first round this season, I have plopped one from 225 out within 15 feet from the pin.  I may change my driver this year but I get the feeling this club along with my hybrid (also a Bio Cell +) will be around for a long time
    • Make sure you bring your current driver with you and make sure u hit it on the launch monitor there.  You will want to be able to compare what it says for your current driver with what they fit u for.  All u want to see is the improvement of the new over the old.  Don't dwell on the distance the monitor says....just the improvment.
