    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.

    Distance irons, Scotty Camerons (I own four because I’m an idiot) and the lob wedge // Hybrids, they don’t get enough love.

    Distance irons are flat out stupid. You need to gap your clubs up to whatever you hit your driver. I love guys who brag about how far their pwedge goes. It's about distance control, buddy.

    The idea of buying a 400 dollar putter is ridiculous to me but those things hold their value.

    Overrated: Scotty Cameron Putters (especially their headcovers, c'mon $200+ for a piece of leather lined with fleece and velcro with some Hula girl embroidered on it?? You can get really nice milled putter at that price.)

    Underrated: Lessons and practice. If some people here can just spend the time to stick with their current clubs (especially those made in the last 15 years when the COR and driver head sizes have been maxed out, iron tech has been stagnant for at least 20) and take the time to work on their game and learn the theory of the golf swing the game would be a lot more enjoyable. You can't buy a game.

    While I do have a shot routine when I play and even practice, I shake my head when people just pound off drivers on their first swings when practicing and keep doing it with that club until their range basket is empty. I probably practice with my driver 10% of any given time and spend most of my shots with short irons and wedges. It is the same swing with all clubs as you may know.

    I was hitting balls yesterday and the two guys on each side of me only brought their driver. Whatever floats your boat I guess...

    I'll hit ten or so balls with driver. Five normal swings then some fade and draw attempts. After that it gets tiring. And I know pulling a wedge out and knocking down the short targets is going to improve my score.
