I agree with EasyPutter.  I have A LOT of work to do

I always wonder what kind of responses I will get to forum posts and this is a kind one, thank you!  I am looking forward to seeing more of your posts!  Don't forget the power of photos and videos and how people tend to like to look at them more than they like to read words.  Not real forum contributors though, we love the words as so many writers are well worth getting to know!

I am beginning to believe your entire web site is a scam and a sham! You're merely a schill for the manufacturers to sell more of there golf equipment.  It's impossible to become a tester for any of your offerings and you completely ignore the senior golf playing population, which probably plays more golf per year than any other demographic.  I must admit, I am totally and thoroughly disappointed with your website, your design, and especially how you pretend to pose as a legitimate source of valid information.  Let's see your response to this negative review of your web site.

Well I'm a senior golfer and have been chosen to select product more than once. I'm pretty sure if you read more of the forum you would have realized the large range of ages and handicaps and you wouldn't  have made unsubstantiated comments like you did.

Good pointers, joined the forum but never participated other than applying for the signups. I guess it's fair that it's not totally randomized, hopefully i get to test a product out sometime soon!

... The MGS website and this MGS forum are basically two completely separate entities. And as a young 69 yr old, this forum is filled with golfers of all ages but certainly plenty of seniors and "completely ignore the senior golf playing population" could not be further from the truth. Plenty of seniors, including myself, have done testing with no interference from the OEM that in every case I have seen want honest reviews from real golfers so sham and scam is 100% baseless. 

There seems to be a senior tester in almost every test. Why? Because being retired allows them more time to test equipment.

I can easily name 1/2 dozen Senior Testers.  

Just this year! Guys like yourself are here all the time and are the reason for the culture of the forum.

I know that Columbus and Cincinnati are about two hours apart but every year there is an Ohio get together. A bunch My Golf Spies from the Ohio area just getting together to play golf and have fun. Do a search for it in the forum and maybe you might be interested next time it comes around.

Great info - thanks. 

Welcome to the forums!  I see you have 7 posts but no reactions, until now 👍  Recommend looking through the forums for something that interests you and read what has been posted for at least the previous 8 to 10 entries then whatever inspires you, write a response, click Quote to respond directly to that entry or the + to the left of the Quote for a response to multiple entries and be genuine with what you write.  I think you are going to find a community of golfers who fall into the category of those you would choose to golf with given a chance ⛳

Amazing how no matter how big we make the posts, put it in the title or anything else the basics are just ignored because ppl want free stuff.

To be a tester do you need to be in the US? 

That depends on the test itself. Those decisions I believe come from manufacturers

Probably doesn’t help that the Twitter and Facebook promotions for the test say “Retweet and tag 2 friends to test this” Link to the blog site not the application thread. Seems to go directly against the MGS ethos around accuracy in golf advertising.
