The ITR guys just told me that as a 10 hcp, it doesn't matter whether I play a PV1 or TopFlite, because I'm a 10!!  These guys are don't have a clue.  Not all 10's are created equal.  

 

I'm sure that the Brass at Titleist and Callaway LOVED to hear that...  "It doesn't matter what ball you crappy 10 handicap players play."  I read this as play the cheapest thing available...

Breed keeps talking about Quality Control, which is fair, however, I didn't listen to the show, but have seen what he says on twitter. My question is this, did he even mention that the manufacture of the ball has been making balls for a long time. I would think/hope they have solid QC. I have played through a dozen and no issues. Also Costco back their products 100%. I am sure if they were to get a ton of returns due to bad quality they would do something about it.

This was discussed. Breed still had his doubts during the show and obviously after. Sort of seems like a witch hunt to find SOMETHING OR ANYTHING wrong with the ball. Obviously it falls into the category of too good to be true BUT there is some test data behind it and obviously first hand accounts to support the claims...

re: Kirkland.

I laughed when I heard this and thought the same thing. Most, if not all, of these guys are under sponsorships and this seems to be one of their only way to discredit the ball. I'm sure it isn't making their sponsors very happy. Wonder what kind of fall out may happen from this side of things, if any.

There is no hotter ball right now, but I say no.  They are being paid be the OEMs.

I missed Hank Haney's show yesterday, so I just went back and listened to it.  Wow!  He was singing a completely different tune than he was today with X.  

 

Yesterday:  

"There is no way this ball is 10 yards longer.  It's just not feasible"  

"The [MyGolfSpy test] is the most unscientific test I have ever heard of in my life."

"The golf balls are all going about the same distance."

 

Thanks X for setting the record straight.

If you listened after X got off Haney said a few more nuggets

 

About the Nicklaus ball - Never heard of this (snicker), where do you even get them? 

Here Hank http://www.mygolfspy.com/direct-to-consumer-golf-ball-buyers-guide/- we told everyone about them - by Nicklaus designed with Bridgestone

 

and later he says - I'm still have my doubts with this testing

I just checked and neither the Haney or Breed shows are in the on demand yet.   Is the afternoon show still talking about it?  Guess I'll tune in and find out?

So funny little story about Breed continuing to questing the testing. A little quick background about my work before I get into the story. I'm a commercial underwriter for one of the biggest banks in the world. I look at business lending deals all day long which includes a deep dive into all company and personal financials. I then take that data and analyze it vs. industry standards and expectations, blah blah blah. Long story short, we work with numbers all day and do a lot of work with statistics.

 

A guy I work with was asking me what I was listening to this morning on our way to lunch. I told him it was about MGS and told him a little of the backstory behind MGS and what they stands for. I told him how there are two different ways to test basically, robotic and statically using real humans. He immediately jumped in and said "The robot test wouldn't make any sense as long as you did enough (meaning 1000-10000 shots)with a human and threw out the worst shots using an outlier detection system (his exact words...notice how they match X's because he's using a true method) it would give you the true performance. A robot would only give you the top capabilities of a product, not necessarily what works." I was surprised at first because, as I mentioned, this guy doesn't golf at all.

 

I think part of the problem is that these guys (Breed, Haney, etc.) only know what their told, sort of. Now this isn't necessarily their fault as the robot has been the standard for testing for years and as X mentioned during the interviews, there is a place for it. I think what scares them, to some degree, is that this goes against the grain. They're having a hard time grasping the concept of statistics (a lot of people do) because all they can picture in their head is that a human cant consistently make the same swing every time, which is true. But I think that is the exact point of why MGS's test is a better form of data than a robot. It takes into account that very fact.

 

I think it would be very interesting to somehow get someone from that side of things to be apart of the Most Wanted testing or any testing for that matter so they could get up close and personal with the data and truly understand what it is telling us.

Great post severetheties!

 

Another thing I wanted to mention/ask, at any time did Haney who I believe is still a Golf Digest contributor, mention the fact that GD uses real humans of all handicaps (not robots)  for it's annual Hot List testing?   I haven't seen or heard him criticize them for that!!

Of course not! Hank's interview was honestly terrible compared to Breed's. Hank was just pulling things out of his ass it seemed in any attempt to discredit the testing. Mentioning this would help bring credit to MGS.

 

I did see Hank give a shout out to MGS and say he likes their work and while I hope this true, it almost seems it is just an attempt to save face.

It is - toggle to their shows and find the specific segments

I have the APP and listen on my phone.  I'm not sure if the layout is the same, when I pull up the archive list of Haney's shows, the most recent is yesterday's.   But I'll check again, incase I'm missing something.   Thanks!

Go to the live channel and then scroll down. It should, in white, show you what is next, then what is on currently, and if you keep scrolling you can click either "A new Breed of Golf" or "Hank Haney Golf Radio" and it should take you to todays show for either. The interview on Breeds was just a little more than half way through his show. Hanks was right at the beginning.
