FIRST LOOK – The Odyssey eyeFIT Putter Fitting Mirror

FIRST LOOK – The Odyssey eyeFIT Putter Fitting Mirror

Mar 29, 2013 | 7 Comments

Putter fitting, who needs it? Average golfer says “Ain’t nobody got time for that.” We all know that many average golfers get “fit” for a putter by grabbing one that they like the looks of in the shop, rolling a few balls on the carpet, checking the price, and then taking it to the course. Isn’t that how we also shop for clothes? “I like the look of them trousers. Try them on, you ask? Not necessary. They look so good I know that they will fit and make me look great.”

Well today Odyssey has come out with a simple product they hope will change that mentality. You might remember the iPING cradle putter fitting. Yeah it made putter fitting more accessible, but still not quite to the level needed for Joe and Jane. Then came Odyssey’s eyeFIT.

Dec 3, 2012 | 82 Comments

Finding new gear is like finding your woman, looks are normally the first thing that matter. In January at the PGA show I was walking around when a “gold” colored driver caught my eye. This was my introduction to the United Golf brand and Peter and Graham who are the designers behind Professional Golf Europe. I had no clue that this chance meeting would result in any real improvement to my golf game, but was I in for a shocker. {MORE INFO}

CHALLENGE! – Can Indoor Golf Lessons Lower Your Handicap?

Jul 5, 2012 | 20 Comments

If I told you that you could drop your handicap by 7 strokes, increase distance on your drives, improve your driving accuracy, all without touching a golf course…would you believe me? Hell no…you would probably think this was some 2AM infomercial, claiming only things infomercials can claim. Well that was exactly the premise behind GolfSpy Dave’s latest challenge. He wanted to see how much you could improve your game by taking only indoor golf lessons.

Hell…even Callaway got in on this crazy challenge by promising to donate a set of clubs to the “First Tee” for every handicap point GolfSpy Dave dropped in the process. {MUST READ!}

What A Difference a Shaft Makes!

Feb 27, 2012 | 60 Comments

(Written By: GolfSpy Matt) – Recently, I had the opportunity to return to the gear head’s paradise that is Club Champion. Fujikura offered to have me fit for any shaft in their line up, so I brought a driver that I liked, but no longer fit me, to see if we could breathe new life into it. The results that I saw, and will share with you, prove once again how important it is to be fit and what a vital role the shaft plays in the golf club. {READ ARTICLE!}

You Just Got Ripped Off! – Is Your New Club A Fake?
