SURVEY: How has MyGolfSpy influenced your game?


GolfSpy Barbajo

Recommended Posts

Bought the Cobra Fly Z driver because of my golf spy. Totally love that driver. It was available in green so that is what I got. My buddies call it the grasshopper. I know I will get honest reviews of products here without the hype. I never buy anything without checking here first to see if it has been reviewed.

1. Have you purchased any golf products based on MyGolfSpy reviews?  (Please list which ones.)

-dst compressor

-ping ketsch putter

-915d2

 

2. How has MyGolfSpy changed the way you think about golf equipment?

-All equipment isn't equal, some research may be required

 

3. Have these purchases lowered your scores? (List which products and how much they have lowered your scores.)

-the dst compressor has helped me over a block in my brain about positioning at contact.  Whenever I'm not swinging well I bring it out to the range, and it fixes me up.

-Ping Ketsch putter has really awesome distance control, so I'm always near the hole

-915d2 is really forgiving.  First driver I have confidence in, and first driver I bought due to reviews

 

4. How have these purchases helped you enjoy the game more? How?

-I'm on a mission to improve and drop my scores.  Those items have helped the process.

1. Have you purchased any golf products based on MyGolfSpy reviews?  (Please list which ones.)

 

I purchased my Callaway XR2 driver based on the performance test done the year it came out.  I have also purchased the Snell and Vice golf balls.  

 

2. How has MyGolfSpy changed the way you think about golf equipment?

 

I appreciate the unbiased reviews of the equipment that help me determine what new technology is a gimmick or an item that will actually help my game.  The testing done across a broad spectrum of golfers allows me to make a decision about a club using players of my abilities and swing speeds as opposed to a pros, whom I can never hope to match (not that I'm not trying).

 

3. Have these purchases lowered your scores? (List which products and how much they have lowered your scores.)

 

No but I enjoy the game playing with them more.   Golf lessons have lowered my scores and improved my game overall (but that is a whole other story).

 

4. How have these purchases helped you enjoy the game more? How?

 

Yes.  The drive was certainly an improvement over my previous driver (old TM 580).  The balls have been great and I certainly enjoy the game a little bit more when I spend less money for certain items.  A ball the plays similar to a ProV1 for half the cost a dozen makes me smile when i hit it and less upset when I lose it.

1. Have you purchased any golf products based on MyGolfSpy reviews?  (Please list which ones.)

Snell MTB balls; and helped me decide to buy my Taylor Made M1 driver

 

2. How has MyGolfSpy changed the way you think about golf equipment?

More reinforced than changed the idea that unbiased testing is very valuable in choosing golf equipment

 

3. Have these purchases lowered your scores? (List which products and how much they have lowered your scores.)

Scores are coming back down after some time off and a few injuries. Fairways hit is for sure better with the M1.

 

4. How have these purchases helped you enjoy the game more? How?

The Snell "My Tour Ball" is as good a ball as I've played at a price that doesn't make me cringe when I'm standing on the box looking at a long carry over trouble.....especially when I've got my M1 in hand.

1. Have you purchased any golf products based on MyGolfSpy reviews? (Please list which ones.) I purchased Taylormade PSI Tour Irons, TM M2 Driver, Vokey Sm6 Wedges 52, 56 & 60.

 

2. How has MyGolfSpy changed the way you think about golf equipment? Great place to do research on new products and clubs without bias.

 

3. Have these purchases lowered your scores? (List which products and how much they have lowered your scores.) Irons are great love the 6.5 Project X shafts. Helped control ball flight and trajectory. Wedges are now x100 shafts and more accurate than "wedge" flex stock shafts.

 

4. How have these purchases helped you enjoy the game more? How? Being more aware of the relationship between the shaft and club head to maximize performance.

The ball i play (Snell), my driver (sub70) and my putter (ping heppler fetch) are all directly influenced by MGS.  The driver and putter from testing opportunities and the ball from the ball test results.

A LOT!

From equipment reviews, actual testing that I participated in. Balls, clubs, range finder and such. 
I changed almost everything in my bag (including the bag) and the ball I play. My handicap dropped and just as important, I gained more focus on my game due to doing testing.

I started walking the course which helped my fitness. Lost some weight. I met a lot of great people, staff and members alike.

Thank you MGS and the Forum.

I'm not sure I can even begin to elaborate on all of the things I've learned or purchased based on feedback from the MGS Forum & members - some highlights as a starter:

Would have never considered fittings before purchasing equipment.

Ball lab definitely influenced my ball purchase decision - including info on DTC options. Members here confirmed the best choices to me to try. 

Club shafts - I could spend a couple of hours on what I learned and my corresponding purchases as a result. 

That the marketing hype doesn't equate to performance on the course. That brand new driver isn't necessarily going to give you an extra 15 yds. over last year's model. Balls sold with the logo +  'Straight and Long'  aren't. 🤪

That loft matters more on irons (or any other club)  rather than the number stamped on it. 

I now know I shouldn't be influenced on purchases by the Club pro who only sells Ping Clubs and Srixon &Titleist balls and BTW gets a corresponding commission. 

A launch monitor is an important tool to use for swing speed improvement otherwise you don't have a starting point and monitoring tool. 

Importance of lessons and practice.

Always thought there was 'back room magic' to putting on new grips. I now do all of my grips and enjoy the process. 

When I joined in 2017 I considered it lucky to break 110. This afternoon I shot an 84. 

I could spend the rest of the evening further elaborating but my wife and I have a SKYPE call scheduled in a few minutes with my daughter in Australia.

Wish I could give a meaningful answer but it's literally NOT quantifiable nor enumerable (yes, that's a term).

#1. MGS and the MGS Forum has raised my Golf IQ immeasurably vs where i was just a few years ago!!!!!!!!!!

Following that, in no particular order, includes things like...

-- meeting virtual friends and in a few fortunate circumstances meeting them IRL and becoming real friends 👍

-- learning about shafts and all the myriad of technical stuff associated with them;

-- learning about the differences in club heads and what might or might not work for *my* game;

-- literally a countless number of tips on anything and everything related to every little discrete nuance of playing this crazy game;

-- encouragement, support and actionable advisements to try to correct my way too many to list swing flaws;

-- the chance to participate in official forum member testing/reviews has HUGELY sharpened and improved my game!;

-- the Ball Lab has been a (dare I say) game changer in educating us the general golfing public;

-- the forums ("fora"?) have been a steady source of info, humor, engaged discourse;

--- (and sheesh i dont wanna keep dronin on but by now i think you get the idea!)

Wow!
It would be easier to find some part of my golf game that MGS has not influenced. Everything from Driver, woods, irons, wedges, putters, balls, shoes, watch, Range Finder, and even tees. It is fair to say that MGS is the #1 most popular and trusted source for golf reviews for all products golf.

1. Have you purchased any golf products based on MyGolfSpy reviews? 

Sub70 699u/699 irons, Callaway Jaws FT wedge

 

2. How has MyGolfSpy changed the way you think about golf equipment?

I've always been a gear head but MGS has filled in the blanks in areas I wasn't previously familiar.

 

3. Have these purchases lowered your scores? (List which products and how much they have lowered your scores.)

I don't know if they did or it was a result of playing more frequently but I am scoring lower and enjoying it.

 

4. How have these purchases helped you enjoy the game more? How?

Yes and yes. The 699u 5i is my most consistent straight club, the 699 irons are sweet for looks and gameability. The full toe Jaws wedge is a stroke saver, spin machine.

Like @cksurfdudesaid MGS has brought my golf IQ way up. I understand a hell of a lot more now about the game. 

Also training aids that I most likely would not have purchased before I did because of the site which have drastically changed my play as well.

MGS really influenced my thoughts on the ball I play. Especially the importance of sticking with one ball all the time. I had already settled on a gamer before the series started, but the Ball Lab has been a fantastic resource for information and I use it to see if any other balls should be on my radar.

I'm not one to change clubs out of my bag often (just look at my WITB), but I wouldn't know about companies like Sub70, Takomo, or Edel without MGS. It helps to know what other options are out there beyond the big guys.

My take is a lot like Tom the golf nuts enjoy the reviews and the discussions about equipment and courses.  While I haven't purchased anything based on MGS, it did validate my purchase of Sub 70 clubs through the positive reviews.

Also, it now provides a large network of people to lean on for opinions or information about all kinds of golf stuff.

4. How have these purchases helped you enjoy the game more? How?

1. I wouldn’t say I’ve made a purchase because of a review but yes, I have strongly taken that information into account before making a purchase. Especially as it relates to golf balls. 
 

2. I’ve been around golf for almost 40 years so I consider myself pretty savvy but there isn’t such a thing as too much information. 
 

3. I do think making a more informed ball choice has impacted my score. Can’t specifically say how many strokes but I would venture to guess it’s been worth at least 1-2 strokes per round. 
 

4. Better scores always make for a more enjoyable experience 😎

I use MyGolfSpy as my buying bible. Their reviews on products are the first step in considering something new.

1- Whenever I am thinking of something new, I try to look it up in MyGolfSpy online. If they have reviewed it, their review weighs heavily on the decision to purchase. The reviews are honest and straight forward.

2- MyGolfSpy reviews equipment from guys with different swing speeds and addresses questions directly, not generically. I can usually adapt the review to my requirements and needs.

3- I can't say that their reviews have helped me lower my scores, that is up to me, but the reviews have helped me in buying or demoing  a product that I am interested in and I feel help me to enjoy the game a little more.

4- The purchases I have made after seeing the reviews is made with confidence as to what I can expect from it.

1. Have you purchased any golf products based on MyGolfSpy reviews?  (Please list which ones.)

 

2. How has MyGolfSpy changed the way you think about golf equipment?

 My most recent wedge purchase was heavily influenced by John Barba’s review of the Edison 2.0 wedge. It was through MGS that I first learned about Evnroll. It led to the purchase of an ER7 putter. It’s still in my bag. I have a Ping G400 Max driver because of an MGS review. MGS has also informed my golf ball purchases, Snell, Maxfli and Kirkland. My game, losing balls, leads me to value space. MGS has me avoiding 2-piece balls. Also having been a forum tester has me thinking about purchases more critically. And another big part of my buying decision input comes from the forum and seeing how golfers like me think about products.

 

3. Have these purchases lowered your scores? (List which products and how much they have lowered your scores.)

  I can’t quantify this one as readily but I have noticed that I certainly don’t lose as many balls. But one of the most recent additions to my bag though came from being selected to test the Paradym X irons for the forum. I am seeing marked improvement in my iron game. I am most definitely closer to greens and am hitting more greens from longer distances than ever before and I’m seeing my scores start to come down and becoming more consistent.

4. How have these purchases helped you enjoy the game more? How?

   Most definitely. Buying decisions are made with more confidence and that makes me more confident when on the course. And being active in the forum brings me a great deal of enjoyment. The MGS Forum is the true hidden gem of My Golf Spy.

I bought tour exotics c722 after your review 

2. How has MyGolfSpy changed the way you think about golf equipment?

I got back into golf last year after a long hiatus and MyGolfSpy was integral in my choices to upgrade my clubs and what equipment I purchase. It’s the first stop when I do research

3. Have these purchases lowered your scores? (List which products and how much they have lowered your scores.)

Yes, definitely. My new irons have helped me drop 4 or 5 strokes if not more

4. How have these purchases helped you enjoy the game more? How? More consistent play, less frustration on poor shots

The golf ball reviews were eye opening for me. I’ve been a titleist guy for my whole golfing life but have been able to try some different balls with confidence thanks to how you breakdown balls. 

Srixon irons. Paradym driver. Vokey wedges. Works for me!

Much less influenced by hype, more interested in data.  As a dude effect, less brand loyal.

Ping G425 hybrids.  One stroke?  Depends on found and course I’m playing.

Better knowledge on and off course.  Equipment that is better suited to my game.  Less expense, better outcomes.

1. Have you purchased any golf products based on MyGolfSpy reviews?  (Please list which ones.)

I pay attention to the ball reviews/ball lab content and really put a lot of stock in that. There have been balls I’ve wanted to play or try but haven’t based on constancy issues.   

2. How has MyGolfSpy changed the way you think about golf equipment?

I always assumed with the way manufacturing is set up that you would get (almost) the same product every time. I know that there is a mean of standard deviation so nothing is 100%, but it was pretty enlightening on how even larger manufacturers still have consistency issues when making products. 

3. Have these purchases lowered your scores? (List which products and how much they have lowered your scores.)

I think so! Or at least I hope so!

4. How have these purchases helped you enjoy the game more? How?

 

I used the golf lab/ball reviews to help me narrow down the top couple of balls that I felt would be right for my game. From there I was able to test some out and find the best ball for me. It has been exciting to find the right ball and to see it preform!
