    Overrated: Flightscope Mevo + Driver / Underrated: Flightscope Mevo + Wedges

    Overrated: TS3 woods. Have the driver and 3 wood. Was custom fit at Titleist and I have tried them with 5 different shafts on the course. They are a load of crap. The 910 driver is miles better.

    14 clubs/7 clubs
    Woods/hybrids - similar lofted hybrids just as long but much better from range of lies
    Getting fit(ted)/20kg Kettle Bell - Soooo many golfers play a crap back 9 because they are too tired by then. Amazing what a few circuits of squats/lunges, pushups, rows and Kb swings several times a week will do for your game.

    Serious answer. Martini tees! I have been using the same pair (one short, one stepped) since February. Its quite an amusing little side show to my golf.

    "Game Improvement" irons..... When there started to be big money for OEMS to make with clubs somehow we as consumers drank the Kool Aid and feel the way to a better game is to buy "game improvement" clubs versus working on our swing and fitness. These clubs should be called "distance improvement" irons instead.

    Draw/fade settings on drivers. They do little except put the idea in the consumers head they work as advertised.

    Overrated: Cameron putters -- and I've used one religiously before -- they just don't change much from year to year and I believe a high end milled putter is a high end milled putter

    This pretty much says it all haha
