    Most underrated is the motorised caddies, saves at least 2 shots per round.
    Most overrated is the driver shaft, not a whole lot of difference distance wise.

    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.
