2014 Golf’s Most Wanted Push Cart

Aug 5, 2014 | 31 Comments

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]

2014 Golf’s Most Wanted Blade: The Results

Jun 10, 2014 | 66 Comments

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]

Golf’s Most Wanted – Premium Gloves

Golf’s Most Wanted – Premium Gloves

Jun 2, 2014 | 103 Comments

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.

2014 MOST WANTED – Fairway Wood – (Overall Winners)

2014 MOST WANTED – Fairway Wood – (Overall Winners)

May 16, 2014 | 20 Comments

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]

2014 MOST WANTED – Fairway Wood (Accuracy Awards)

May 14, 2014 | 18 Comments

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]

Golf’s Most Wanted – 2014 Golf Shoes

Apr 21, 2014 | 61 Comments

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]

Apr 2, 2014 | 100 Comments

Choosing a watch-based, or simple small voice GPS can be a daunting task? Do you need 25,000 Pre-loaded courses or should you go for a unit that offers 30,000? Are you willing to pay a bit more to get distances to hazards or are you content to know yardages to the front, back, and middle of the green? Do you want to use your GPS to keep score?

For such a small device, there sure is a lot to consider. [READ MORE]

Today, we are going to break down the data a bit more to see if we can’t identify some of the factors that played a role in this year’s testing. Naturally, we will be looking into the massive dominance of the Ketsch, but we will also take some time to explore the other contestants, hopefully shedding some light on the underlying factors that affected their performances relative to the others in the field.

We have a bunch of numbers to look at, and a bunch of conclusions to discuss, but first let’s reset the testing conditions. [READ MORE]

2014 Golfs Most Wanted Mallet – The Results

2014 Golfs Most Wanted Mallet – The Results

Mar 18, 2014 | 97 Comments

To assess accuracy, we had each tester take five putts at distances of 5, 10, and 20 feet, recording the distance that each putt ended up from the edge of the cup. That means measurements were taken for 15 putts per putter with each tester, totaling 150 putts per putter!

Once the distances from the edge of the cup were adjusted for the five and ten foot putts, the scores from all of the testers were combined to generate a total accuracy score for each putter. Accuracy was assessed for the group of testers, not the individual testers.

“Golf’s Most Wanted!” Mallet Putter, should be the most accurate, regardless of the person swinging the stick. [READ MORE]

Inserts of various compositions and morphologies. The finishes vary. The materials vary. The grips vary. Head geometries range from a simplistic half-mallet to one with a center shaft and aggressive perimeter wings.

The mallets are very different, but they all have a shot to be the Most Wanted Mallet. [SEE THE MALLETS]
