Review: TotallyDriven Golf Shop
There are many different places to buy clubs, have them worked on, get fit, and work out, but there is only one place in the Twin Cities, MN that offers all of this year round with the highest quality. Totally Driven is located on the east side of the Cities in Oakdale, MN. They have a modest building in kind of a commercial warehouse area. The outside is pretty simple and plain, but once inside, you see that they are all about golf. They have bags and racks of clubs and shafts from just about every manufacturer. They have a putting green and 3 hitting bays, along with a club workshop in the back. The total space isn’t huge, but it is well stocked and has everything you could ever want as far as fittings, club repairs and training aides.
Their biggest upgrade for 2012 is the addition of a FlightScope X2 launch monitor. In my opinion this was the best thing they could have done for their shop. They had a LM before, but I never found it reliable enough nor did the included software offer even close to as much easy information for fittings as the FlightScope does. Now you can come in and hop on the LM and in no time, figure exactly what you need whether it be irons, wedges or woods. I spent my time just working on a driver fitting (TaylorMade R11S w/ Oban Kiyoshi Black). Andy really knew his stuff. He was able to walk me through the shafts rather quickly so that I didn’t have to hit 100s of golf balls to find what I needed. I think I hit about 35 total shots and we had the perfect fit.
The rest of their staff is really helpful too. If you want to get into shape for golf, Lynn offers a number of different training options which include swing coaching and fitness training. She uses a number of different programs including the TPI golf fitness program. If you just need some club work done, Jon is the man to bend it, tweek it, cut it, shaft it or grip it. They have all the tools necessary to get your clubs exactly to spec so you have a perfect fit for your game.
They offer AimPoint Putting Clinics as well. While I haven’t taken one yet myself, (on my list of things to do) I have only heard rave reviews of these putting clinics.
While there are other shops in the cities with more clubs for sale or an outdoor fitting area, Totally Driven offers everything you need to take your game to the next level. There is a reason they are a top 100 shop in the country. Totally Driven really is the best overall shop in the Twin Cities, MN.
