I'm a college player in the southern part of Connecticut. When I'm in school in the midwest, we work with Miles of Golf in Ann Arbor, MI to get fittings. I want to find a place where I can hit several driver shafts without having to pay $125 for a fitting. (College-Friendly fitting places) Any suggestions on locations?

Fujikura, Folds of Honor create Patriot Edition shafts May 25, 2015 By Jonathan Wall, PGATOUR.COM Fujikura's Pro shaft is a mid-launch, low-spin model that features a softer handle. (Jonathan Wall/PGA TOUR) Two of Fujikura's most popular shafts (Fuel and Pro) are now available in limited edition red, white and blue graphics. To give back to military families, Fujikura teamed up with The Folds of Honor Foundation to create a special Patriot Edition shaft, with 10 percent of all proceeds benefiting the foundation. Fujikura's Pro shaft is a mid-launch, low-spin model that features a softer handle and stiffer mip and tip section that allow players to load the club and get more feel during the transition. The bend profile for Pro came about with the help of ENSO, Fujikura's 3D motion capture system that has 10 cameras and is capable taking images at a rate of 2,000 frames per second, allowing it to analyze how every part of the club is behaving and reacting during the swing. Pro also has Fujikura's H.I.T. technology (High Inertia Tip) â€” weight is taken out of the tip to increase inertia â€” in the tip that stores energy during the downswing and releases the energy just before impact. To make up for the loss of weight in the tip, a maximum carbon fiber content material called "Cage" was added to the tip for increased stability. Fujikura Fuel, launched in 203, is a low-launch, low-spin model that combines the company's Fuel R.O.D. Technology â€” housed inside a combustion chamber â€” with a Load-Injector Tip that channels the shaft's energy through the R.O.D. to the club head. The technology gives golfers a tighter dispersion and a softer feel than some of Fujikura's low-launch, low-spin shafts. Dustin Johnson used a 70-gram Fuel in his TaylorMade R1 driver to win the 2013 Hyundai Tournament of Champions. Patriot Edition Pro and Fuel shafts are available through select Fujikura Charter Dealers.
Fujikura are running a contest for the four 2014 Majors and will be sending someone to each of the Majors this year. This'd be such a sweet trip, so just wondering if you guys could 'like' my Instagram post and help a brother out. Top 10 'liked' photos by each deadline go into the draw for the trip to the major.
