Here’s the breakdown
How it influences the iron purchasing decision
As reported recently by our friend Ryan over at Golf News Network and the sneakerheads over at GolfPunkHQ, Nike appears poised to release a new golf shoe under its Jordan Brand.
Actual release date is unknown, although we’re comfortable with probably soon. The retail price hasn’t been announced either, but we’re equally as comfortable with probably not cheap.
Picking a driver is easy. I’ve yet to find the golfer who can’t work with long and straight. But finding exactly what you want in a golf ball…that’s a bit more nuanced. As with nearly every other piece of equipment in the back, the ball offers plenty (or at least plenty of words) to consider. 2-piece, 3-piece (lots of pieces), cores and compression, dimples, mantles, rubber and RZN.
Even when you sort through all of that, what I think is important in a golf ball may not matter in the least to you. Some demand more distance, while others demand total control.
Today we wrap up our look at the clubs in YOUR bag. We’ve covered drivers and fairways, hybrids and irons, and today we’ll take a closer look at your wedges and putters. As we’ve done to this point, we’ll look at what you carry, how long you’ve had it, and what your replacement plans were for the season.
A few weeks ago we took a look at the clubs that occupy the driver and fairway wood slots in your bag. Today we’ll continue that with a closer look at what you guys carry for hybrids and wedges. We’ll look at how old those clubs are, as well as whether or not you have any designs on replacing them this season.
While I certainly found your feedback on drivers and fairway woods interesting, it’s likely today’s numbers that reveal the biggest difference between our readers and the average golf consumer.
Which state has the most golf courses? Which state has the most difficult?
After our last article which looked at Golfer Performance by State, we wanted to dig in a little deeper to see what we could learn about the differences in golf courses between states. Weather, availability (quantity), and difficulty vary dramatically from state to state. [READ MORE]
A few weeks ago we asked you to tell us about the equipment in your bag. We already know what the pros play (because the brands they rep bombard us with press releases weekly), but what about the average golfer…or at least the average MyGolfSpy reader?
Golf equipment is a business, we get that. Certainly most of us would play just about anything if we were compensated for our trouble. We’re not, which is why we think it’s much more interesting to hear about the equipment you’ve spent your hard-earned money on.
It’s pay to play vs. paid to play. [READ MORE]
Which state has the best golfers? Which state has the worst?
Today we’re going to take a closer look at how golfer performance compares across state lines. While much of what we found aligns with our expectations, we found a few curiosities as well.
To bring you this information, we’ve partnered with TheGrint, a Golf GPS and Handicap/Stat Tracking service. TheGrint’s massive database provides absolutely incredible insight into the makeup of the golfing population as a whole. [READ MORE]
MyGolfSpy has partnered with Edel Golf to offer you this opportunity to be a part of something truly unique. Today we take the next step in building something you’ll be proud to say that you helped create.
It’s called the #MyEdel putter.
It’s time to flip the putter around and choose the face design and milling pattern for our crowdsourced putter.
Edel has provided us with 3 distinctive options, but as was the case with the putter itself, we can choose but one. [READ MORE]
Rory’s driver – paid. Tiger’s irons – paid. Phil’s wedges – paid. Spieth’s shoes – paid. That doesn’t interest us in the least. What we really want to know is what golfers such as yourselves have chosen for your bags.
What brands are you playing? How long have you played them, and of course, what new gear are you planning on purchasing this season?
We want to hear from the guys who pay to play, not the guys who get paid to play. [READ MORE]
