    Easy.
    The most over rated in golf equipment related promotion, 15 more yards with each of the new driver model. second would be the fitting of golf equipment will be the next magic bullet.
    On the flip side, improve physical condition of the golfer for the base to improve the golf game. It is a "sport" and the golfer's physical ability still plays a huge part of the out come of the game. However, it does not mean every golfer has to shot a low score to enjoy it. Second in place would be the eye sight of the golfer also plays a big part of how the golfer enjoy the game.
    One of my favorite phrase describing the game of golf.... Golf is the other thing we could enjoy not being very good at it , like having ****.
    Of course the degre of enjoyment might be different depending on the golfer's ability, but, if one had never been to that level, he/she may not know the difference.
