1. Have you purchased any golf products based on MyGolfSpy reviews? (Please list which ones.)
So this is a tricky question. One item I did purchase based on Most Wanted testing was a Leupold GX-3i2 as I needed a new rangefinder and that one tested well. I've used Bridgestone B330-RX for years, even before MGS started using them for testing. However, all club purchases I've made in the past 4 years or so have been based on being fitted. I've bought the Callaway BBA (2014) driver and fairway wood, the XR16 Pro driver, TM RocketBladez irons, and, just recently, the XR Steelheads. The Steelheads haven't been reviewed yet, but the others have scored well in Most Wanted testing. Did I buy these items because of the testing? No, it was because I was fit for them and that's what I hit best. Which is what MGS preaches.
I do have a Scotty Cameron putter, which I love, and which usually tests terribly in Most Wanted sessions. If anything, I would like to check out Carbon Putters.
2. How has MyGolfSpy changed the way you think about golf equipment?
That you don't have to change equipment that often. Year over year, there isn't much change. If you go 3 years or so, you can then tap into new technology if you're looking to switch.
3. Have these purchases lowered your scores? (List which products and how much they have lowered your scores.)
Sadly no, my scores have actually increased the past couple of years. But it's because I developed some bad tendencies and habits in my swing which I've been working on with my instructor. When I can get my swing unstuck, the new equipment sure does work well. I will say that I think the Callaway MD3 wedge and the PM Grind wedge I've bought have really helped my short game.
4. How have these purchases helped you enjoy the game more?
Who doesn't like getting new equipment? At the end of the day, we're all logging into an equipment site because we love it, right?
