When it comes to golf in Maryland, the state is perhaps best known for Congressional Country Club (a near-annual tour stop that’s hosted 3 U.S. Opens and a PGA Championship), but the Delmarva Peninsula (which includes parts of Maryland, Delaware, and Virginia) is home to Ocean City; a bit of a poor man’s Myrtle Beach.
Not only does Maryland offer some of the best oceanside courses on the east coast, the state’s offers fantastic golf at a price to meet nearly any budget. Yes, we do have some resort courses on our list, but we also have an excellent municipal course with a sub-$50 price tag.
Our 2015 Most Wanted Budget Golf Glove Buyer’s Guide consists of gloves with a retail price below $19. When we looked at the totality of the gloves submitted for testing, we found that $19 is the point of separation between true tour-quality gloves and budget-oriented gloves.
The gloves in this list are ideal for the golfer looking for a bit more durability than we’d expected from a tour glove, as well as a good balance of proper fit, feel, comfort, grip and breathability.
The Oregon side of our list pays tribute to what, with all due respect to Pebble Beach, many would tell you is America’s premier golf destination. Given it’s popularity and reputation, it comes as no surprise that Bandon Dunes figures prominently in our rankings.
The most famous, or perhaps most infamous of the Washington courses is the venue that made the 2015 US Open as much about the course as the competition itself.
The gloves in this list are ideal for the golfer looking for the perfect fit coupled with amazing feel. Given that emphasis on feel…what you might call the connection with the club, our expectation is that the gloves on this list will be less durable and often less breathable than the majority of their more inexpensive counterparts.
To sum it up in a single word, our premium gloves are for golfers who want one thing from their glove: performance.
While the state’s golf reputation may not equal that of California, Florida, or the Carolinas, Texas is home to Nike’s Oven, Ben Hogan, UST, and, once upon a time, Adams Golf. Its roots in the game are strong.
As you’ll see on this list, the state is also home to some spectacular golf courses.
What are the qualities of a great game-improvement iron?
Distance? Accuracy? Forgiveness? We believe the best game-improvement irons offer an outstanding balance of the three – and their performance is consistent with every iron in the bag.
As it turns out, finding a set of irons that does exactly that is no easy task.
This years’ crop offers swing tempo, swing strength, and other multi-sport functions. As GPS reliability has more or less normalized across all devices, look for these and other feature adaptations to be what differentiates competitive devices moving forward.

While South Carolina is often on the top east coast destination for those seeking a winter escape, the other Carolina is most certainly not without its share of world-class golf. You probably already know about Pinehurst, but that’s only the beginning of what the state has to offer.

Which Putter is The Best?
That is a valid question. Now that the Carbon Putters Ringo 1/4 has been crowned the 2015 Most Wanted Blade Putter and the PING Cadence TR Ketsch Heavy has earned the 2015 Most Wanted Mallet title, it’s only natural to want to see how they stack up against each other.
Today, we will give you the overall winner.
However, we are not just going to compare the two winners. In fact, we are going to show you how all fifty-seven putters stacked up in head-to-head competition.
This time, the title is not Most Wanted Blade or Most Wanted Mallet. Today’s winner is the Most Wanted Putter in 2015!
For many of us on the east coast, South Carolina, and more specifically Myrtle Beach, is where we go to escape winter. Given the volume of golf courses packed into the Myrtle Beach area, it’s no wonder that the city features prominently on our list of the top course in South Carolina.
Given how many of you have visited the state specifically to play golf, we expect they’ll be plenty of discussion about the courses on this list as well as some of the ones that didn’t make the cut.
The search for the best golf courses in the USA moves to Arizona and Nevada.
While the desert offers some of the most unique scenery the game has to offer, it also presents a bit more danger as well. From the wildlife, which includes coyotes, scorpions, and rattlesnakes, to cacti; most notably the notorious jumping cholla, desert golf isn’t without its risks. Toss in temperatures that can rise above 110° in the summer, and you have an abundance of reasons why desert golf is uniquely challenging.
You don’t likely have the time to test twenty-eight putters, but we do.
Our 2015 Most Wanted tests will point you toward the best putters in the marketplace. We’re not talking about the most popular putters, we’re talking about the putters that actually perform.
California is home to near perfect weather and some of the best golf you’ll find anywhere in the country. While some of it, the Monterrey Peninsula (home to 3 of the courses on this list) for example, can be pricey, that’s more than offset by a little muni outside San Diego, and our #4 ranked course where greens fees start at under $50.
Shot Trackers (or round trackers, or performance trackers) represent a relatively new category of devices to track every detail of every round of golf you play. Shot tracking devices use GPS to plot your shots throughout a round of golf
