    Overrated = drawing lines on your golf balls, my ocd kicks in and don’t like it.
    Underrated = Rangefinders, I’m the only one in my weekend league that has one. Some have GPS but imo it’s not the same.

    I like that one. I can play pretty well with hickory shafted irons, wedge (niblick) and putter, and it's a lot of fun.

    Or maybe

    Lessons / natural ability

    Lines on balls/ Tees
    Too many bad putters spend way to much time lining up ALL their putts with lines on their ball.
    Tees are the Swiss Army knife of golf. You can use them as a divot repairer, ball marker, head scratcher, partner picker, spike and groove cleaner. Can also be used to elevate the ball off the grass before hitting.

    Without a doubt, I’d say Scotty Cameron would have to rank as high as anything as being overrated!! That’s coming from someone with one home in the closet.

    A Hyundai will get you from A to B but a Mercedes will do it with style.
