Several weeks ago we asked you to share your thoughts on non-conforming clubs from major manufacturers.
The feedback was, to a large extent, about what we expected.
Your responses to this survey and the discussion that followed the original post, suggest this is a polarizing subject with plenty of passion on both sides (and in the middle).
Here’s what you told us. [READ MORE]
How would you respond if a major golf equipment manufacturer started producing non-conforming clubs for the US Market?
Would it change your playing habits. Would it change your perception of the golf companies. Would it change how you spend your money?
That’s exactly what we want to understand. [READ MORE]
MyGolfSpy has partnered with Edel Golf to offer you, and other golfers, the opportunity to be a part of something special. MGS wants to empower and inspire you to design a product you can proudly say that you were a part of creating.
We call it the #MyEdel putter.
As the first step in the design process we need you to choose the head and hosel combination for the #MyEdel putter.
Here are your choices: [READ MORE]
A couple weeks ago we asked you to tell us about your game-changing equipment of 2014. We wanted to know which gear had the most positive impact on your games. We believe in #ThinkBigPlaySmart and #PowerToThePlayer. We believe that empowering golfers with better information helps put better gear in your bags.
One way we do that is through the power of numbers. Since we now have over 1/2 million golfers reading MyGolfSpy now, we thought it would be valuable to get a consensus count of the gear that changed bags around the world for the better this season. [READ MORE]
Just over a week ago we asked you to predict what you think will prove to be the best selling and best performing drivers of 2015. And you sure did. Your participation in this survey was immense, and we think that’s awesome.
While some of what you told us this time around was predictable, there were definitely enough surprises to warrant a deeper look into the data. We believe your feedback provides invaluable insight into how our readers perceive each of the golf companies whose products were on our list.
Invaluable as it may be, we’re sharing our results (free of charge) with you and the golf companies. Here’s what you told us. [READ MORE]
Big money will be spent on the PGA Tour, commercials, and whatever other means a given company believes will influence you to spend your money on its products.
You and I, we need to figure out how to navigate the advertising and find our way to those products that might actually benefit our games, because we all know that what sells best doesn’t always perform best. [READ MORE]
With the 2014 season winding down for those of us in cold weather states, and the 2015 PGA Season now underway (how crazy is that?), we think it’s an appropriate time for you to take a look back at your 2014 golf season and to tell us about the best gear you added to your arsenal in 2014.
What game-changing equipment did you add to your bag in 2014? [READ MORE]
Do names matter? Should what’s stamped in the sole of a driver impact how a golf club sells?
Does campy work, or are manufacturers better off keeping it simple?
Cultivating a brand identity (product names are certainly a part of that) is integral to the success of every company. Who are we, and how do we convey that to the consumer? [READ MORE]
Mizuno isn’t the biggest brand in golf. They don’t spend nearly as much as some others on Tour endorsements. They don’t have an astronomical marketing budget. They don’t even have a booth on the PGA Show Floor (Mizuno goes the conference room route).
What they do have is an innovative iron fitting system, a loyal following, and a reputation for producing some of the best feeling irons in golf. How does all of this translate to our brand survey? [READ MORE]
Who can make #ThePimpest putter in golf?
Remember #ThePimpList “Wedge Edition? If you do, then you got to see what can happen when you ask that same question and unleash some of the sickest most bad ass behind-the-scene wedge designers in the game of golf. You get things like this never done before (damascus wedge) design and this too!
As soon as we started receiving submissions for the original wedge edition of #ThePimpList, we began planning for the custom putter version.
Don’t be fooled by imitators. MyGolfSpy is home to the Original Pimps. [READ MORE]
As we move closer to the start of the next chapter of MyGolfSpy we want to hear from those of you who have purchased equipment because of something you’ve read on MyGolfSpy.
SURVEY – How has an equipment purchase made because of a MyGolfSpy #DataCratic review improved your game? We will be selecting random entries to send prizes.
To this point we’ve basically focused our survey efforts on some of the larger brands in golf. This time around we want to hear your thoughts on a smaller brand that I suspect will be very popular with you guys.
As most of you know, Mizuno started leaking pics of their upcoming fall releases during The Open Championship, so now seems like the perfect time to hear what you think about the Mizuno brand and its products.
Love Mizuno…despise Mizuno? It’s time to have your say. [READ MORE]
Perhaps I delayed writing up these survey results as long as I did out of some overly-optimistic delusion that more people would actually participate in the survey. It didn’t happen. We’ve done several surveys prior, and a couple since. We’ve marketed and promoted them the same, and despite all of that, the raw head count, suggests that golfers just aren’t that interested in Nike as a golf brand.
By far our Nike survey generated the fewest responses. It’s almost disconcerting.
Want some context? [READ MORE]
It’s not like you get an actual vote or anything, but if it’s any consolation, neither did I. It’s safe to assume that by now any decisions about the tech that will power the next Nike driver has already been made, but that doesn’t mean we don’t get to have an opinion.
I’ve sorted through the various drawings and picked a mix of the interesting and the probable, and now we want you to tell us which of these 6 designs you think should become the Nike VRS Covert 3.0 Driver.
Here are the top contenders: [READ MORE]
Round up the usual suspects. There are murmurs about Callaway and TaylorMade. I know the Nike Golf team is excited (like crazy excited), and everyone believes Titleist is going to be its steady, reliable self.
Predictable, and I suppose interesting as the status quo may be, the loudest whispers in the golf equipment industry right are coming from the most unexpected of places.
That’s right, tire/golf ball/occasional equipment manufacturer, Bridgestone Golf is planning a wooly mammoth sized push in 2015. [READ MORE]
