History’s Mysteries: The Demise of MacGregor Golf

Welcome to the first official installment of what we at MyGolfSpy hope will become a favorite of yours: History’s Mysteries. It’s easy to care only about today. But historical perspective helps us connect certain dots while disconnecting others. By peering through the lens of time, we can better understand just why the golf industry is the way it is and how it got here. Our first subject is, next to Wilson Staff, the most iconic name in golf’s long, fascinating history: MacGregor Golf. History...

Testers Wanted – Fujikura MC Putter Shafts

The graphite composite/multi-material putter shaft is far from ubiquitous. However, things are changing. Callaway nearly made it mainstream with Stroke Lab. Bryson has 14 graphite shafts in the bag, including an LA Golf Partners putter shaft. The most recent addition to the growing cadre of steel alternative putter shafts is the second generation of MC Putter shaft from Fujikura. While it may not come with a side of fries or a plastic toy, the MC Putter is yet another option that suggests that m...

TaylorMade 300 Mini Driver

The TaylorMade 300 Mini is the company’s latest “mini driver” offering. At 307cc, it’s a bit larger than previous mini offerings. Retail price is $399.99 and will be available July 15. The TaylorMade 300 Mini is the company’s latest one-off in the mini driver category. For the moment, it’s a one-of-a-kind offering in the marketplace. If MyGolfSpy did a Most Wanted Mini Driver test, we’d be limited to two products: the new TaylorMade 300 Mini and the legendary GX-7. That second one would be ...

Alexander: Richard Bland’s story of persistence plays out at U.S. Open

This one is for the grinders. Thirteen years after Rocco Mediate stood up for Everyman at a U.S. Open at Torrey Pines, England’s Richard Bland struck another blow for persistence when his 67 put him at 6-under and, at the end of the day, a share of the second-round lead at the 2021 Open. He’s deadlocked with Russell Henley, who had a one-shot lead disappear on his last hole when his 6-foot par putt hit the cup and bounced away. The back story? Bland, 48, is in San Diego because he won the Britis...

Alexander: Richard Bland’s story of persistence plays out at US Open

This one is for the grinders. Thirteen years after Rocco Mediate stood up for Everyman at a U.S. Open at Torrey Pines, England’s Richard Bland struck another blow for persistence when his 67 put him at 6-under and, for a while Friday afternoon, atop the second-round leaderboard at the 2021 Open. The back story? Bland, 48, is in San Diego because he won the British Masters, part of the U.S. Open 2021 European Tour Qualifying Series, in May. That alone is a cool story, but consider: It was his fi...

Sub 70 Golf: Growing Pains In The Post COVID World

Like any OEM, Sub 70 Golf is between a rock and a hard place as this COVID nightmare slowly winds down. The company has been riding the tidal wave of golf-mania for the past year, posting record sales numbers seemingly every month. That’s the good news. The bad news? Unexpected rapid growth can turn the Field of Opportunity into a Field of Landmines pretty quickly. The big guys, like the Callaways and Titleists, can afford to stumble over a mine every so often and still make it to the other side...

Angels pitching coach Mickey Callaway placed on ineligible list by MLB

Mickey Callaway, who had been suspended as Angels pitching coach since February, was placed on the ineligible list by Major League Baseball after a four-month investigation into reports of his pattern of inappropriate contact with women in the media. The Angels then announced that, effective immediately, they were “ending Mickey Callaway’s employment with the Angels.” Callaway is eligible to apply to MLB for reinstatement following the 2022 season. “Having reviewed all of the available evidence,...

Q1 Financial Reports: Acushnet and Callaway 

Lost in this week’s big TaylorMade news is the fact that golf’s two other top dogs have released remarkably strong Q1 financial reports. Both Callaway and Acushnet blew away 2020’s COVID-infected Q1 results. What makes it interesting is both companies outperformed their pre-COVID 2019 numbers.   And not by a little, either.    Acushnet is reporting . That’s up 42 percent from 2020 and 34 percent from 2019. Callaway, meanwhile, says it hit $652 million in Q1. That’s a new Q1 company reco...

Best Full Bag Under $1500

Golf has unquestionably been on the upswing over the past year. Countless people have taken up the game for the first time or returned after an absence. While a boxed set or a few decades-old clubs from the garage might have been good enough to get started, it’s understandable that many of these golfers might be looking for an upgrade. Club shopping these days can come with a serious amount of sticker shock. With the 2021 MOST WANTED DRIVER models running $500+ in most cases and iron sets around...

The idea was to give us a sense of how brands are performing with our readers and to gauge what impact COVID has had on equipment replacement cycles. It’s well-accepted that the typical replacement cycle (how frequently golfers replace their clubs) is three to six years, depending on the club category and how avid th...
