Living in the heart of WV the options for a quality fitting are pretty much nil.
I would rather spend a couple of days out of state and get a quality fitting.
In the late 90's the club I belonged to had a great Pro and he did an excellent job with a 975 and I think some 918 irons.
I got out of the game for some time due to my daughter being born and spending my time running all over the country with soccer.
I decided a couple of years ago to get back into it a little bit and my option was Dick's and let's just say I'm not happy with what I have.
Ohio, Kentucky, Virginia?
I've read good and bad reviews about Club Champion and they have a newer facility in Columbus.
Let's face it, WV is not really known for it's golf other than the Greenbrier for people that live way above my means.

The Titleist Thursdays are open to the public, regardless of the status of the club. There will be a Titleist rep at those sessions and the pro at the club may not be the actual fitter. If you elect to not sign up at that location from the fittings section on this web site, I'd recommend checking for other Titleist fitters. You mentioned the 975 and irons, but the TS drivers have been out for a year, only the TS hybrids are just now getting fit at Titleist Thursdays, as well as the change over from AP irons to T-x00 irons. Titleist Thursdays are free fittings, and pro shops have not charged me a fitting fee with a purchase of a driver or a set of irons, but that can vary and worth asking.
Man-O-War Learning Center in Lexington is a Premier Titleist site. Scioto Country Club and The New Albany Country Club are in the Columbus, OH area and are Premier centers. Premier fitters would have to be open to the public. Thursdays and Premier sites are my recommendation. My preference is an outdoor fitting so I can see what the Trackman "sees" in a 15 foot booth. If hitting other than driver, I want to feel turf and not an artificial mat. Mats provide much higher launch and "no fat shots". I only looked up fitting locations on this web site by picking locations that met your criteria out of WV nearby to you.
