  1. I apologize as I'm guessing this must have been addressed before, but searching back is very tedious and time consuming. I'm looking to upgrade my irons to newer, but not brand new clubs. Many club manufacturers don't come out with a new line of irons every year but release on two year cycles. Combing through the Most Wanted articles I've noticed that in some cases, such as with the Titleist 918 irons but others as well, the performance rankings given in the Most Wanted write-ups sometimes vary considerably from the first year to the next, either greatly improving the second year compared to the first, or significantly worsening. Is that most likely due to changes by the manufacturer within the product cycle, changes from year to year in the testing methods and performance criteria, or the vagaries of a changing mix of those who swing the clubs from one year to the next? Thanks.
  2. Anyone see this apparently new documentary on the Golf Channel, nominally about the transformation over the decades of Callaway’s golf ball manufacturing plant in Chicopee, MA? Makes several claims that fly in the face of recent findings from MyGolfSpy: The Chromesoft is/was longer than previous more traditional balls (per Phil Mickelson) and that the plant’s high technology insures that every ball’s core is perfectly centered.
  3. Listened in through the entire raffle last week. Just a comment on the incongruity of your rightfully questioning the wisdom of golfers buying clubs online or off the rack without fitting and comparing it to buying a lottery ticket, with this straight forward raffle of equipment. No possibility of knowing that the lucky winner has any need for the piece of equipment at all, let alone whether it fits anywhere close to what would benefit them. Great that I won a driver with a stiff shaft, except I need regular flex. I’d guess that a lot, if not most, of the lucky winners turn around and sell what they won on eBay. Probably not feasible since it would require a lot more upfront preparation: putting out the specs on each item ahead of time, and doing some variation of a “”chinese’’ raffle whereby participants identify and try for what they would actually want. Some strategizing there for participants: whether to go for something that’s likely to be very popular and therefore harder to win, versus a different item that’s likely to garner less interest, thereby increasing one’s chances of winning. And it beats winning a great item that I can’t use.
