I recently bought a putter at Puetz. The salesperson wasn't very helpful ("fitted" me by watching me make three quick putts and claimed that that was correct because a famous putting instructor told him to use that length and I must be the same height as he is), didn't offer to tape up the soles of some putters and send me out back to their practice area to evaluate them -- another salesperson did that for me later), and it's left a bit of a sour taste in my mouth. Still, they're local and I'm not ready to give up on them. However, I'm also open to other shops, too.

So...I'd be grateful for a referral to a competent, attentive and honest salesperson to work with so I can get my hand-me-down club set upgraded. Puetz, Pro Golf, or wherever else I can go on the west side of the lake.

Thanks.

My experience w/ Puetz hasn't been great either. (Aurora store)
They charge $50 for club fitting , but waive it if you buy.  Spent about 25 minutes with me on the trackman and put me in an reg flex TFC in my G15 3wd.
OK, that's what the numbers say, but I thought the flight was better with the stiff TFC and Serrano both, but they were pretty insistent that the Reg would work better, so I went that route.
Fast forward and after 3 rounds it's obvious the R balloons and likes to hook at the end of the flight, so I take it back and they only want to give me 80% value because I used it. Not a mark on it.
I just want to exchange straight up for stiff. I had to $35 to get another 3wd.
I'll try the other local shops first next time.
spend some money and try Vons golf.

Had a similar experience with fitting there, although it wasn't on the launch monitor. Had a salesman (Bob) come out and help me try drivers when I was just starting this year, had a horrible swing going. Got fit for a R flex diablo edge in 13* loft, played with it for a few weeks, improved my swing, and started launching the ball way too high. Came back to trade for a DE in 10* loft, still R flex, had to pay 15%.

As for finding a good local salesperson/fitter, I'm still looking myself...
