Why did you join MGS?

Recommended Posts

I (like many) joined for the opportunity to do a review.

 

I stayed because I love the reviews, and the relaxed, respectful way this forum runs. I feel like nearly everyone on here is here for the right reason.

I also figured out quickly that this was the only site without all of the huge egos. Feels like home here, and that's pretty rare on the internet anymore.

After seeing many of the Blog pieces on Twitter and other SM, I came over to read a bunch of the ones I had missed.  I was really impressed with the depth, detail and knowledge of the writers of each piece.   I then checked out the forum, and quickly saw it was a place where everyone was welcome, all input was appreciated and there are no class differences between mods and members, just plain good golf conversation by everyone, where everyone's input is valued. 

 

I've stayed because to quote Ole Roy (Williams) It's the "best dadgum" golf site around!!

Came for the reviews, as they're the only ones I really trust, stayed for the community in the forums.

I saw a reference to an MGS club review that I was interested in getting.  Enjoyed the read, and stuck around.  There are so many nice folks here, and it seems like we have similar tastes.  I wish may of you lived closer, and we could get together for a round of golf and a round afterwards.

I just joined because I thought it might be fun. That's really it.

Certainly wasn't for free stuff. I didn't even know MGS gave things away back when I joined.

Saw the article on Ksig vs Prov1, thought it was interesting.  Then stumbled into the Mission:Ping article and was hooked.  Love what MGS stands for and produces.   After some time, I stumbled into the forum.  Having never joined a forum and having just picked up playing golf, figured I would take the leap.  No looking back now!

I had been reading the yearly club reviews for a bit and decided to jump in on one of the member reviews I stumbled onto by accident. Once I signed up though I spent an hour reading through different topics before I actually remembered I was going to sign up for a review. So while my intentions at first started as selfish in one way my unknown desire to be a part of a community that speaks of nothing but golf took over. Needless to say the great community kept me here once the signup was complete! Long live MGS!

I have officially been on the forum for over 5 years but really haven't become active until recently.  I have used quite a few golf forums over the years some are still here while others are no longer in existence.  I became more active on MGS when I noticed the email blasts were coming from Yorktown VA which is down the street from where I live.  Since then,  I really like the forum since most of the posts are golf related and not hundreds of posts related to what I consider off the wall topics.

Stumbled on the site after seeing the KSig vs ProV1 article on social media. After spending a couple hours reading old articles and forums I figured it was the site for my golf talk "fix."

I got a very pleasant surprise when I found out I got to keep the MLA putter I got chosen to review. I'd assumed I would send it back after finishing my review.

 

By the way, it still works great.

I like the honest and respectful discussion here. Best equipment reviews around without a doubt. Data and science backs up everything. Member reviews are awesome here as well. Mainly because not everyone here carries driver 350 and a cut 7 iron goes 195.

I joined after reading a forum members independent review- shoutout to rover rick wherever he maybe- his review of the c tapers was thorough and inspired me to join and contribute.

I've done some MGS reviews and some I did with things I bought on my own.

Have always liked the most wanted series. Looking forward to this years glove review- though the foot joy pure touch has yet to be beat for ne

I liked the concept. Cut the BS and let's see what really performs. Plus no one else in my house will listen when I talk golf.

I joined because I had read reviews for a little while and I liked the material I was seeing. I liked that it is honest testing and not driven by golf company dollars. I joined because the group seems fairly knowledgeable about golf and does get into the hype. I liked that the group is involved in the reviews and testing and has an ownership in the group
