    Driving/Utility irons, for somebody that is a good iron player, i think driving irons are not used enough. It has changed the way i approach the tee box and eliminated a lot of strokes from drives that were putting me in a bad spot, all because i was chasing more distance.

    It must be 18 holes to be a round of golf / playing 6, 9, 12 or whatever might fit in a shorter time period

    How to play golf.
    Hit the ball.
    Find the ball
    Repeat until the ball is in the hole.
    Have fun.

    Overrated: shaft selection. Edit: or "visible technology" - it nearly beats out "turf interaction" for stupidest review phrase.

    Underrated: putter fittings.
