MGS tests we'd like to see.

How about a test on how much a golf psychologist will really improve your game. Start off with 3 months of regular play, then three months talking to a golf shrink and see if the game improves.

That may open a can of worms for certain people.

I'd like to see comprehensive data on the effect grip circumference has on lag, release and shot shape. I get the feeling, with good data, it's probably one of the easier and more cost effective methods to improve impact position and shot pattern. I also believe there is more to be learned than regular vs mid-size; ie regular grip with 5 wraps of tape under the bottom hand. In my opinion grip customization is also relatively free from potential market controversy since testers would presumably employ their typical gamer clubs across all testing.

Agreed. The last thing I wanna hear is that my driving accuracy is tied to my relationship with my mother-in-law.

Well there you go, driving accuracy is actually tied to your relationship with your FATHER IN LAW, your relationship to your mother in law is directly proportional to the number of 3 putts... 😂😂

Steel vs Graphite iron shafts ... which offers best control, best dispersion & distance ... tested by individuals with the same swing speed. 

 

Does technology these days really help the average golfer?

The course handicapping/slope/rating system... not sure how you'd do it but see how accurate it would be. How much harder is one course than another

How about a test that takes a left handed model of club vs. the right handed model of the same club, and see if the Lefties are actually made to the same high standards as the right handed models. Could be any club, but I think Driver and putter since those are the most “technology” driven clubs.

Whoa!!! Now there's something that never crossed my mind. As a LH I always assumed that RH & LH were always the same but who really knows?

Great idea

What I love about MGS tests is they typically answer one question; will this product improve your score? 

Well, I think most people would agree, the best way to improve your score is not through technology but through skill so, how about a test of products designed to make you a better golfer? Training aid testing! Which products make you a better ball putter, which improve ball striking, etc. and which are not worth the price of postage.

I would like to see a review of online lesson services like Rotary Swing as well.

 

If certain products work and absolutely can make you a better player, I would like to know!

Putting analysers --

since the iPing cradle and app (iPhone-only - harrumph) came out there are any number of gadgets and devices to measure your putting stroke ... so what are the functional differences / head-to-head comparisons between "retail"-oriented things (could be wearable or go into the butt-end of the club; say $100 - $250 devices; and not a full fitting Sam PuttLabs nor Quintic nor Foresight) like Blast Golf or 3Bays Putter or ____ ?

Yes! Great idea.

 

There's finally enough of a market that that can be tested. Arccos, Shot Scope, Game Golf, Skycaddie, Golf Logix?

 

Could you imagine the poor testers using all of those concurrently? That would be a fun 6 hour round lol.

wondering if any of the MGS staff have read through this thread at all and plan on doing any of these tests?

 

There are some great ideas in here and it would be a shame for them to get lost in the weeds...
