  1. Questions: 1. Have you purchased any golf products based on MyGolfSpy reviews? (Please list which ones.) Absolutely , I wouldn't consider buying anything without visiting MGS. Too many clubs to list, but the articles, reviews and tests influenced me to purchase all of my Adams XTD Irons, Woods & Hybrids. 2. How has MyGolfSpy changed the way you think about golf equipment? ​It changed my perception of the industry tremendously. I've learned a lot about equipment design, quality and technology mainly due to the unbiased approach to testing and numerical data. Numbers don't lie. Buying golf equipment is like buying a companies stock off Wall Street. For example, if you buy a stock based on all the hype or talk you see on the airwaves or in print....you'll likely end up disappointed having fallen into the media and marketing trap. MGS provides a way to cut through the "white noise" and equips the potential golf equipment buyer an opportunity to truly know what they are investing in. 3. Have these purchases lowered your scores? (List which products and how much they have lowered your scores.) Yes. Having equipment that best fits my game and minimizes my faults is critical in the overall "fitting" process. The information provided on MGS benefits everyone, but the information combined with a hands-on professional fitting is priceless. Once you can begin to understand what you need, then you can better make a decision on the right equipment for your game. When that time comes, you need to understand (without bias) how the equipment performs or its overall characteristics. I knew my specs before purchasing my Adams clubs and bought the clubs knowing that they would provide the balance of performance and quality I was looking for. 4. How have these purchases helped you enjoy the game more? How? ​Yes. Having the properly fit equipment will change anyone's game. I know that MGS promotes getting properly fit for equipment no matter how good a certain club performs on tests. The combination of being fitted and having confidence in your equipment is critical in lowering scores. I dropped ten points within a season after being fit for irons. Once I knew my specs I could have equipment built or purchased based on my personal mechanics and preference. The only way to have confidence in your equipment is to be knowledgeable about what you are buying. If you understand it in more detail you'll likely "trust" it when your out on the course. When you stand over a ball knowing you have the absolute best chance at a good strike or stroke you can start playing more "natural" golf not having to overthink and focus more on strategy (course management). The end result in all of this is going to be lower scores. Of course, once you've made this commitment to your game, you eliminate the "it's the clubs fault excuse"!
