Tommy Armour gets Spicy with 303 Milled Series Putters

The original Tommy Armour (winner of the 1927 U.S. Open, 1930 PGA Championship and 1931 Open Championship among other titles) may or may not have been the stereotypical “dour Scot.” But if he was, he would be dismayed to discover how the new Tommy Armour milled putters got their names. (More on that later.) Rest assured, however, that the “Silver Scot” would have approved of the product itself. PEPPERS and WHATNOT New from Tommy Armour, the 303 Milled Series Putter comes in four head shapes,...

Tommy Armour 845 Irons

Nostalgia can make people more optimistic and inspired about the future. That’s not the exact tagline for the revamped Tommy Armour 845 Forged irons. However, it’s a reasonable summary of the motivation behind the re-launch of one of the most iconic iron models in recent golf history. It seems nearly every golfer has a story involving the original Tommy Armour Silver Scot 845s. But that’s to be expected when you sell 660,000 sets over a seven-year period. From throwback jerseys to classic golf s...

IS THE PLAIN WHITE GOLF BALL DYING? | #NoPuttsGiven 30

Taylormade looks to push the trend of colored golf balls with their TP5 PIX line. Is this a sign of white golf balls going to the wayside, or just a passing trend?

Dick’s Drops Prices on Tommy Armour Atomic Line

Call it a price adjustment or price drop. Either way, the argument boils down to semantics, but the reality is, whenever prices change – there’s always a reason. Increases are generally a function of rising costs of production (raw materials, labor) or desire for more aggressive profit margins. On the other hand, decreases tend to signal the end of a product’s lifecycle or an OEM trying to boost per unit sales figures (It’s one of the reasons why the early season “buy 3 get 1 free” ball deals ha...

EXCLUSIVE OFFER: TOMMY ARMOUR IMPACT #3

It’s hard enough to gain Most Wanted status given the quality and depth of products we test at MyGolfSpy. We don’t hand out participation ribbons and we only reward products which we believe will help golfers shoot lower scores. With that, one of the most common requests was to include previous “winners” in future tests. So, in 2019 we did just that and pitted the 2018 Most Wanted Mallet (Tommy Armour Impact #3) up against the best of the current bunch. The result? It won again. At $99, it’s a ...

(5) Testers Wanted: Tommy Armour Impact No. 3 Mallet Putter

When you’re a back-to-back champ, you’d think the questions would end, and you can enjoy the parade. But when you’re the revival of an iconic brand (not to mention the house brand at Dick’s), the parade is short, and the band plays Barry Manilow off-key. Despite winning the 2018 and 2019 Most Wanted Mallet Putter, Tommy Armour Impact No. 3 is still trying to get a seat at the big boy table. It may not have the same street cred as an Odyssey, EVNROLL, Scotty or a PING, but gloryosky  Captain Alba...

WHO IS NICK VENSON?

This is a story about a putter junkie. It’s an affliction to which many of us can relate. It’s 1996, and Nick Venson is 13-years old. Like many kids his age, Nick is into collecting baseball cards and stickers, but there’s one item which has his undivided attention. Remember the 1992 cult classic Wayne’s World and Wayne’s obsession with a certain ‘64 Pre-CBS Fender Stratocaster? That bit is responsible for the memorable quote, “It will be mine – Oh yes, it will be mine.” Nick’s Stratocaster was ...

(3) Testers Wanted: Tour Edge Exotics EXS Drivers

It’s a fundamental business truth: price makes a statement. High price makes a positive statement while a low price, not so much. I mean, when it comes to oh, say, a vasectomy, are you going with the low bidder? No one likes spending $500+ for a driver, but that’s what big name ones are going for in 2019. So seriously, how good can a $299 driver really be? According to Tour Edge, every bit as good as the one that’ll set you back five bills. TESTERS WANTED Tour Edge made some noise over the wi...

First Look – Maxfli Tour And Tour X Golf Balls

There are two basic criteria required of all so-called tour golf balls. They must incorporate a thin, responsive urethane cover to offer enhanced spin and control around the greens, and they must offer three (or more) layers to reduce spin off the tee and generate optimal launch parameters on iron shots. Beyond that, construction and performance differences can be minute. Several hundred RPM here and 1° of launch there isn’t likely to make or break a round for the vast majority of amateur golfer...

FIRST LOOK: Ben Hogan PTx PRO Irons

Have you ever had a club you wish to hell you’d never got rid of? For me, it was a set of Y2K Hogan Apex Plus irons. They didn’t have much sentimental value – I bought them on eBay for about $75. They had plenty of bag chatter, some nice wear marks right on the sweet spot and felt like a foot massage from a young Kathleen Turner. Loved the look, too, with the Hogan signature and the Sunburst logo –  just the sight of them made my heart do the Rhumba. I don’t know who’s holding them now, but I wa...

First Look – TaylorMade P-7TW Tiger Woods Irons

The doors had barely opened at the 2017 PGA Merchandise Show when TaylorMade officials confirmed what most expected – it was signing Tiger Woods to a multi-year endorsement deal for an unspecified amount. Immediately, gear heads began to pontificate as to which clubs the Big Cat would bag – knowing the driver and metalwoods would likely be a quicker and easier transition, with the wedges and irons lagging behind. TaylorMade indicated as much stating its engineers would be working directly with T...

BEST SPIKED SHOES OF 2019

2019 SPIKED SHOE BUYERS GUIDE Despite the emergence of the spikeless golf shoe category, there are still many who prefer spiked shoes. While there are always exceptions, spiked shoes often provide better traction in wet conditions, and for golfers who need it, the additional stability that is sometimes gets traded for the versatility that makes spikeless shoes great for casual wear or for going straight from the office to the golf course. At the same time, manufacturers have responded to the ch...

First Look – CNCPT BY TITLEIST CP-01 and CP-02

In 2016, Titleist debuted its first Concept line of golf clubs. Officially, the Concept platform provided an avenue for the typically reserved Titleist to explore cutting edge – perhaps even radical – designs and materials without the cost constraints placed on clubs intended for the mass market. Unofficially, PXG tapped into a market few in the industry new existed and its emergence in the previously untapped ultra-premium space, was eating into the bottom lines of mass market competitors who l...

A CLOSER LOOK AT THE TOUR EDGE EXS DRIVER

Tour Edge is making a habit of performing well in MyGolfSpy’s annual Most Wanted testing. Considering price, performance, and longevity, it has arguably the most complete lineup of metalwoods on the market. Last year, the CBX fairway wood beat out the big names to assume the title of overall winner and this year, the EXS driver was declared the “Best Value.” Let’s start with a common definition. The value in this context is a function of performance per dollar spent and is what Tour Edge wants c...

First Look – Titleist TS4 Driver

Hitting both the USGA’s conforming clubs list and the PGA Tour today is a bit of a surprise from Titleist. Here it is, the TS4 Driver. Let’s start by answering what I assume will be the most frequently asked question. The TS4 is not a replacement for either the TS2 or the TS3 that were introduced last fall. It’s what golf companies call a line extension, and in this case, it’s about extending the fitting capabilities of the TS line to include golfers seeking ultra-low spin without sacrificing ...

First Look: Cobra KING MIM Wedges

Which construction produces a softer feeling wedge – forged or cast? According to Cobra and its new KING MIM wedges, the answer is a polite “neither.” The correct response would be Metal-Injection-Molded (MIM) wedges, which feature smaller and more evenly distributed voids (holes) in the 304 stainless steel grain structure to generate a softer feel at impact. Typically, when discussing wedges, the dialogue centers around grinds, groove technology, CG location, and bounce options, but MIM is a fu...

Why Does MOI Matter in a Putter? A Discussion with Odyssey’s Chief Putter Designer

Are you obsessed with your golf gear? As a group, golfers are notorious for stressing over the most minute of golf club details. The game of golf is just so damn difficult that we feel the need to dial in our equipment with precision to a single gram, or single degree. The hope is that precisely fitted equipment provides the best opportunity for success. We know that little things can make a huge difference. The most obsessed among us dial-in lofts, lengths, lie angles, flexes, alignment scheme...

How Hard Should You Push Your Child to Play Golf?

When my father first introduced me to golf he had one goal in mind: He wanted to make sure it was enjoyable. To facilitate the fun, every time we went to the course or the driving range, he would set up a game or challenge. More importantly, we never kept score, and only occasionally did instruction take place. What instruction my father did provide was always useful though. As a Class A PGA pro, he has a firm understanding of the fundamentals of the game and never tried to teach me a “perfect” ...

Two Years Later, the PXG Effect Continues to Spread

We’re coming up on three years since MyGolfSpy coined the phrase The PXG Effect as an attempt to encapsulate the upstart brands’ impact on the golf industry. Admittedly, part prognostication and part evidentiary sampling, it certainly appears a paradigm is shifting. It’s been nearly four years since the company launched, and somewhere between accident and intention, PXG has become a different type of family business while altering the standards by which the industry evaluates golf luxury. It’s n...

First Look – PUMA IGNITE PROADAPT Golf Shoe

I’m as excited about the new PUMA IGNITE PROADAPT as I have been any golf shoe in recent memory (insomuch as I get excited about shoes). Full disclosure, I get more excited about golf shoes than I probably should. What You Need to Know about IGNITE PROADAPT I’ll share the specific technologies in play in just a bit, but what has me amped for the PROADAPT comes down to two things: PUMA is often unconventional in its approach to golf shoe design, but the PROADAPT is as traditional as a PUMA g...

Mizuno RB Tour/RB Tour X: Does The World Really Need Another Tour-Level Golf Ball?

There are fundamental truths in this world one can’t really argue with. One of those is if you want to play golf, you’re going to need golf balls. Let’s pause and allow the brilliance of that observation sink in. Another fundamental truth is where there’s a need, there will always be battalions of people with machinery making stuff to fill that need, troops of marketers convincing you you can’t live without it, and a cadre of salespeople making sure you buy theirs. Case in point – hit the PGA To...
