  1. MGS Best Driver of 2024 - PING G430 MAX 10K

    From MGS's Best of Golf 2024 - "The best driver of 2024 had to make an appearance on this list. Why? It dominated the competition. Rarely do we see a club take over the field like the PING G430 MAX 10k did."

    And from the Low Swing Speed Golfers - You want accuracy: PING G430 MAX 10K is absurdly straight. It's the best driver for accuracy. For 31% of our testing pool, PING G430 MAX 10K was the best driver for straight and playable shot percentage. This is nearly 10% better than the next best driver." 

    But apparently that isn't true for faster swing speeds.  After reading the Best Drivers for Mid Swing Speed Golfers, I'm having buyer's remorse.  The G430 Max 10K wasn't in the top 3 of the 37 drivers tested in accuracy.  As someone who swings their driver at 97 to 99 MPH, I was most interested in the results from this category and the Max 10K wasn't even in the Top Ten MGS ranked drivers overall.  Shocking since it was awarded the Best Driver or 2024!  That is true for the High Swing Speed Golfers too.  It doesn't seem like this driver dominated the competition for most golfers.  Feeling like I should have waited on MGS's full driver reports instead of trusting the Best Driver of 2024 award.  Now wishing I had tested the Callaway Paradym Ai Smoke Triple Diamond more thoroughly.  It seems like a case could be made that it dominated the testing.  Going forward, should the Best of Golf Awards be decided after the full testing for the year has been completed?

      MyGolfSpy will say it time and time again. The Best Of Is a great place to start your search and a fitting should still be done.

      Many ppl buy off the rack and don't wsnt to do a fitting or anything. For these ppl the Most Wanted is great as it gives a broad overview of what I'd most likely to be to best for them. 

      In the end tho every golfer is different and will fit into different equipment!

  2. Not sure who exactly to ask this to.  I am the director of the charity scramble golf tournament that the company I work for puts on.  We do prizes on every hole through various games, not just closest to the pin or long drive, but longest putt and stuff like that.  Is there a thread for golf tournament ideas?  I try to keep the tournament fresh.  I think I asked something like this on a thread a while back but cannot remember exactly.  Any help would be welcomed.

  3. Tomorrow is a day that nobody is going to want to miss on the Forum! We have had cool tests in the past and we have had big tests in the past, however we have never had one like the member testing opportunity which will launch tomorrow. 

    Truthfully it has been hard to keep under wraps and it came together rather quickly. Of course there will be a newsletter and announcement to go along with it, but be sure to check the forum first thing when you wake up! It will be going live 9 AM CEST!

    I took a photo to give you all a sneak peak for the daily followers, but it came out really blurry... sorry! I will try to get some better photos for tomorrow promise!

      It was a little before your time here @Josh Parker, but for the Cobra series we had a count down clock. We thought about doing the same for this... but we were told before we were being mean.

  8. Time for me to get to my real work for a little bit!

    Happy to see so many new members on the forum and be sure to check out other areas outside of just the test to find so many awesome threads both golf and non golf related!

    - work in industry badge

    - hole in one badge

    - broke 80 badge 

    Thank you

  11. Where is the template?

      GolfSpy_APH

      If you have a round to post all you need to do is go over and post the score. I will double check with Tim, but dont believe there is any template needed. 

      Which does remind me I need to post mine from today!

      Which template are you looking for?

      If it is the review template for members it is linked in the top of the Want to be a tester thread in the big red box.

  13. Quick Site Update, we may be down for a few minutes while this runs!

    1. GolfSpy_APH

      GolfSpy_APH

      Okay, all is back up and running. 

      A few minutes of a bit of bugginess, but for those iPhone users, push notifications via the web app is now available!

      Apologies I try and run these when all of you are asleep, but given the feature addition I thought it important to get it done asap!

  14. Anyone else getting excited for launch season? 

  15. Is there going to be a fantasy golf competition again this year?

    1. GolfSpy_APH

      GolfSpy_APH

      To my knowledge there will be... or at least I have not heard anything different although there could be a slight change in commissioners. Normally the draft is in January after the Christmas break. @Berg Ryman @Undershooter Still thinking we are a go this year?

  16. Thank you to all who have been reporting the spammed content. Apparently the bots really want us to travel! We will get to all reported spam asap and try to be active in banning those members as spammers as we either see them on the forum or in the reported content section.

  17. Promise I'm not trying to spam posts and topics, but have had a lot of time with being stuck at the club watching Curling/ice temps which has meant lots of forum time.

      That is a very good way to describe my job. It is actually a lot closer to golf related than most think. At least in Canada a lot of Curling Halls and Golf Clubs are one. In the summer when the ice is out they use that area for storage/carts and all that sort of stuff. Typically the offseasons line up perfectly with Curling season being October-April and Golf being May-October.

      I wish... Its been raining like crazy here and humidity is high so trying to manage that, air temps, ice temps, dew point all while we have curlings and spectators coming in and out of the ice shed frequently. Its a unique challenge and other then the stones being a bit straighter then I want them to be (not enough curl) its been running well. I have also been here at the rink for 10 tho with another 7 hours left in my working day.
