Going to get down to 3 ° down here in Arkansas tomorrow. Greens covered with blankets. Looks like a week without golf. People always blame me for the cold weather down here because I'm from Minnesota:LOL: Highs in the 40s next Sunday tho.

Any local MSP guys get fitted within the past couple of years? Trying to decide where to go for a full bag fitting. There's a Club Champion close by, Golftec, Second Swing, PGA Superstore, etc.

Or would I be better off going to a course and PGA pro?

I was fit at 2nd swing for irons, wedges, and putter. I enjoyed the process. They use trackman. PGATSS uses GCQuad, which is better is better indoors from what I understand.

One buddy went to Club Champion and really enjoyed the process. He got the irons and driver, then went back for a putter fitting

2nd Swing. Use the Minnetonka location as it was remodeled in the last year or so. Great place.

Was just in there (Minneapolis) on Saturday and didn’t look anywhere near the quality of Tonka..... but I didn’t go next door to their fitting studio... a few years back my wife went there and it was pretty nice

Tour van is for new purchase, regular is for used. I’ve done the tour van a few times. It’s great!

It's a marked improvement from the day they opened that location. The basement, the addition.

Minnetonka is better definitely.

They do need to do something about parking though. Seriously... super tough to find a spot. Was there Saturday picking up sticks for my oldest daughter and no parking anywhere.

Yes it is horrid. I do not know why they chose that exact location to be honest. Strange location if you ask me. So many other spots in Roseville that would have been better.

I guess I answer my own question: there is a course in Shakopee that is open. Not sure if others are open yet.

The snow in the yard finally melted so I can setup my net and new mat in the backyard.
