Our test for distance is testing how far a driver can possibly hit a ball. Period.
For may of you, everything takes a backseat to distance. You’re willing to sacrifice a little bit of accuracy and some forgiveness on mishits for the satisfaction that comes from those select few drives that leave the rest of your foursome questioning what’s in their bag.
Our distance guide is for you. [READ MORE]
Looking for the absolute best carry bag in golf? Man, it ain’t an easy thing to sort out.
Is there a more confused category in golf than stand bags? Call them carry bags and you imply something that isn’t true for 90% of us. What is it you’re really looking for?
Do you buy a stand bag because it weighs practically nothing, ideal for your 54 hole marathon; or do you simply want what amounts to a lightweight cart bag, something with plenty of storage, that’s just a bit easier to carry from the car to the driving range and back?
Whatever your reason for choosing a carry/stand bag instead of a cart bag, we’ve got you covered. This guide will help you zero in on the BEST bag your particular needs. [READ MORE]

Time for a new cart bag? Let’s look at your options. [READ MORE]
Handheld Golf GPS Units may all appear to be nearly identical on the surface outside of screen size, but when you start to dig in and ask, why would a golfer use this, the test results quickly separate the winners from the rest. Your biggest question this year for handheld GPS will come down to if you want a small, medium or large screen and if you’d prefer to do software/map updates via wifi or through USB interface.
While the answers may appear simple, the testing was thorough and The Most Wanted Handheld GPS winner was put through the paces rain and shine to give you the insight you need to make your buying decision.[READ MORE]
Who makes the best push cart? Which one has the features I want? Which one is the lightest? Will a cart work with my cart and my carry bag? How many steps does it take to fold and unfold? Are there differences in the brakes? Is one cart more stable than another? Which is the easiest cart to push?
For a push cart to be Golf’s Most Wanted, it must perform on the golf course. Golfers want a cart that is easy to push, holds their bag securely, stays put when the brake is on, and has enough storage to hold their gear during play. We tested these features and more. Here is how we scored the various Playability components. [READ MORE]
The laser rangefinder is an essential tool for the golfer wanting exact yardages. But which laser rangefinder is the best of the bunch? Which laser should you choose to be your go to measuring device. As always, MyGolfSpy is here to help.
We put eight laser rangefinders from the top manufacturers head to head to determine which one deserves the title of Golf’s Most Wanted Laser Rangefinder. [READ MORE]
Today we are going to dig a little deeper into how the blades scored from the individual distances, and also into the number of putts that were actually made by the testers.
By doing this, we should be able to see how the Daytona 12 was able to capture its victory and also where some of the other putters also excelled, or came up a bit short. [READ MORE]
You didn’t really think we were going to leave our more frugal readers hanging gloveless and out to dry, did you? Given the comments on our Most Wanted Premium Glove Buyer’s Guide, some of you actually believe we wouldn’t consider your needs.
Don’t fret, my fellow penny pinchers, today I bring you the selections you’ve been waiting for, and that includes the brand you mentioned most frequently; Master Grip.
Here’s the question: Are your budget minded ways to be rewarded? Does a glove need to cost $30 to receive an A from MyGolfSpy?
HELL NO. [READ MORE]
Today, we award the title of “Golf’s Most Wanted!” to the blade that was more accurate than its peers. Many of our putters share the classic heel-toe-weighted design, while others push the blade envelope. We have plumbers necks, double-bend necks, and flow necks. We have contestants finished in silver, copper, black, and even one in green.
All of our contestants are on equal footing. All contestants get the same shot at the title. The Most Wanted Title must be earned though. It doesn’t matter if we love a company, or are hearing about them for the first time. Once the putter is in the hands of the tester, it’s all about the data. It’s only about the data. [READ MORE]
Today we take a look at the 31 competitors who will battle it out for the coveted title of “Golf’s Most Wanted!” – Blade Putter for 2014.
We have thirty-one putters from from twenty-one putter makers going head to head, battling to see who is the most accurate.
Remember, that’s what the “Golf’s Most Wanted!” Putter competitions are all about: accuracy
You’ll get no points for aesthetics here. No points for the size of the company, or the number of pros on contract either. It’s performance, not pedigree that determines “Golf’s Most Wanted!”. [READ MORE]
Gloves were all reviewed based on Fit, Comfort, Feel, and Grip. Testers with glove sizes ranging from M to XL rated for each category. Additionally each tester chose his 5 favorites. Results were averaged and placed into a sliding scale for visual representation, and a final letter grade for overall score was assigned for each glove. Price and durability were not factored in the rankings.
What we discovered during our testing is that fit is the #1 factor in determining individual preference. It has a domino effect on comfort, feel and even perceived breathability. We challenge you to compare – look higher up the list than your current gamer. Try a couple on. Pick the one you think best fits your hand and game it for a round (or 4) and tell us what you think.

Ladies and Gentlemen, We Have a Winner!
While we believe our Most Wanted 3-Wood of 2014 is the standout performer in this group, there’s absolutely no reason why you shouldn’t consider some of the clubs further down the list. Many golfers struggle the with the 3-wood off the deck, and what we learned during the course of our testing is that most golfers would be wise to trade a few yards or more to find a club that they can hit consistently well.
For most of our testers, Our Most Wanted 3-Wood offers exactly that, and does so while offering distance gains for most. Maybe you don’t have to sacrifice yards afterall. [READ MORE]
We know there are plenty of you who basically ignored yesterday’s Most Wanted 3 Wood for Distance and are now laser focused on today’s Accuracy results. I call you the smart ones.
Full disclosure, I’m not actually one of you. I want to be, but I’m still more distance obsessed than any rational man should be. I’m learning, and as we’ll discuss a bit later (not today), the 3 wood can be an exceedingly difficult club to hit. It’s an absolute nightmare for some people, and so while I can understand the desire to hit it long, our advice is to find one you can consistently hit straight, and stick with it.
For those of you who just want to know which 3 Woods are the most accurate…[READ MORE]
If there’s one thing I know for certain it’s that some of you guys are chomping at the bit to buy a new 3 Wood. I don’t blame you. I had all but given up on them until this test, now not only do I have a fairway wood in my bag, I’m thinking it might be time to go back to a 5 wood too.
To help you make the smart play (so you can play smart) we put 22 different fairway woods to the test (and that’s if you don’t count Pro/Tour models separately) to find out which were long, which were straight, and which were probably best avoided.
Some offer more distance while others offer more playability. Unfortunately some don’t offer anything better than what was out there 2+ years ago. Which is which? We’ll get to that, but first… [READ MORE]
When we set out to put together the New Shoe Buyer’s Guide, it became obvious that the shoe market has grown considerably. Even after restricting the field for the New Shoe Buyer’s Guide by limiting the contenders to only new shoe models or significant model modifications, there are still quite a few options competing for your dollars.
We reviewed shoes that span the spectrum from budget to luxury and posted scores spanning the spectrum of letter grades from A to F. During the testing, there were certainly plenty of surprises and a handful of shoes scored higher and some scored lower than you would probably expect. While prices are typically good indicators at the extremes, the mid-priced models scored all over the map. [READ MORE]
