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...

Ball Lab: TaylorMade Tour Response Review

MyGolfSpy Ball Lab is where we quantify the quality and consistency of the golf balls on the market to help you find the best ball for your money.  About the TaylorMade Tour Response The TaylorMade Tour Response is the replacement for the Project (a). That was a ball that got a lot of love among connoisseurs of soft golf balls and rightfully so, I suppose. The Project (a), and now the Tour Response, are among the softest urethane-covered balls on the market. And while TaylorMade is not immu...

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 ...

Maxfli Tour and Tour X Golf Balls

DICK’S Sporting Goods has launched new versions of the Maxfli Tour and Maxfli Tour X golf balls. The urethane-covered balls are designed to compete with the top “Tour-level” offerings on the market. Retail price is $34.99. Maxfli Tour and Tour X are the second generation of Maxfli’s surprisingly good “Tour-level” balls. I say “surprisingly” because at the start of our 2019 ball test, we had low expectations for the DICK’S house brand. However, during testing, the Maxfli offerings flew longe...

Father’s Day Gift Guide from eBay Refurbished

If there are three things your dad loves, they might just be golf, gadgets, and saving money. Granted most MGS readers likely have those same loves, but with Father’s Day coming up let’s take a look at a few gifts that hit all three. Most know eBay as the largest online auction site in the world. Many reading will have bought and sold gear there in the past. Another side of eBay, however, is their certified refurbished shop.

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...

Golfer’s Choice Survey Results

A few weeks ago, we asked you about the clubs in your bag. We called it the Golfer’s Choice Survey because we wanted to know which brands you chose to add to your bag most recently. 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...

TaylorMade P•790 Black Irons

TaylorMade has just launched the P•790 Black Irons. They are the same as the current version with a new aggressive black PVD finish. Retail price is $1,699 (3-PW). The original P•790 was an instant powerhouse in the Player’s Distance category. And while TaylorMade’s first foam-filled design raised the ire of PXG, it also sent the company down what has become a four-year-long path of creating some of the most aesthetically pleasing irons in the game.
