2014 Golf’s Most Wanted Driver – It’s Go Time!

Tomorrow kicks off 4 days of Golf’s Most Wanted Driver coverage on MyGolfSpy.

4 Days? I know…it’s insane. Would you expect anything else from the most complete driver test in golf?

When you’re as thorough as we are, it takes nearly as long to get through a single club test as it does some others to get through an entire bag of clubs (not to mention the bag itself).

Quite frankly we don’t even have time to do Morning Drive (full disclosure, they didn’t exactly invite us). [READ MORE]

So you’re headed to Bandon Dunes for the ultimate guys trip – the trip of a lifetime.

You’ll buy some when you get there, right?

You basically just tossed the trip of a lifetime down the drain because you’re probably not going to be able to grip your clubs.

Got your attention? – Good!

Dec 4, 2013 | 79 Comments

It’s time to buy a bag based off of performance, and how well a given bag’s features line up with your needs. It’s time to find the right bag for you.

We spent time plenty of hands-on time with each of 27 stand and/or carry bags; assessing each in 7 different categories. Scores were tallied and each was given a corresponding grade. Any ties were settled based on the price/value score. READ MORE

RESULTS! – “2013 GOLF’S MOST WANTED – BLADE PUTTER”

RESULTS! – “2013 GOLF’S MOST WANTED – BLADE PUTTER”

Sep 24, 2013 | 90 Comments

Yesterday in Day 1 of the “Golf’s Most Wanted!” – Blade Test, we met the 28 competitors and also reemphasized that accuracy is the ultimate factor that matters when we have our putter on the course. Reviewing our trial conditions, we had each tester take five putts at distances of 5, 10, and 20 feet. 15 putts per putter with each tester, gives us a total of 150 putts per putter.

Once the distances from the edge of the cup were adjusted for the five and ten foot putt, the scores from all of the testers were combined to generate a total accuracy score for each putter. “Golf’s Most Wanted!” Blade Putter, should be the most accurate, regardless of the person swinging the stick.

Each of the 28 putter enters the competition on even footing. Tour pedigree, research budget, or size of company grant no favors in this competition.

We are not scoring looks or feel. We are not scoring design. We aren’t scoring any of that totally subjective ‘stuff’.

Here at MyGolfSpy, we only score what counts, and with putters what counts is accuracy. To be the best, a putter must hit the hole more than its competitors. Period.

2013 “Golf’s Most Wanted” – Most Accurate Driver

Apr 16, 2013 | 87 Comments

Yesterday we looked at distance for all 17 drivers in our test. For most guys absolute distance is the only thing matters. 300 yards into the trees is still 300 yards right?

There is, I’m told, a small (but hopefully growing) minority of golfers for whom distance isn’t everything. These are the guys who are willing to leave a little bit of yardage on the table if it means they don’t have to reload frequently, and more often than not, they play their second shot from the fairway.

It’s for this select group of golfers (the more intelligent than I crowd) that we set out to find the Golf’s Most Wanted Driver for accuracy. [READ MORE]

2013 “Golf’s Most Wanted” – Longest Driver

2013 “Golf’s Most Wanted” – Longest Driver

Apr 15, 2013 | 145 Comments

After spending the better part of 3 years building and revising what we think are the best golf club testing procedures in the industry today, the staff of MyGolfspy approached 2013 with the singular goal of publishing the most thorough and complete driver test of 2013.

Why? Because the consumer has been grossly under-served by the big magazines. Those guys thrive on ambiguity. Nothing is ever absolute and everyone gets a trophy. How does that help the consumer?

We think you deserve better. We think you deserve a club test where results aren’t tainted by the inherent conflict of interest that comes from testing clubs from the same companies whose ad dollars pay the bills. You deserve a club test where a logo, or paint, or what some guy thinks about intangibles like looks, sound and feel holds no weight, where innovation is only recognized when it performs, and where the final results are based on performance and not a damn thing more.

You’ve looked at and maybe even rolled most, if not all of the putters in your local shop. But do you really know why (or actually if) one putter is better than another?

There are lots of putter reviews out there, but the one thing they all fail to tell you is whether or not one putter will actually give you a competitive advantage over another. These other lists take worthless data points like innovation and demand in to consideration, when all you want to know is which putter actually gets the ball in the hole faster. We’ve found a way to give you that information. We will tell you flat out which mallet putter out there rises above the competition, regardless of the golfer who swings it.

That putter is “Golf’s Most Wanted” Mallet Putter!
