To those who voted, thank you.

Longest: Titleist with 215 carry.
Best average: Bombtech with 210 carry
Highest ball flight: Nike
Easiest to get airborne: Bombtech Longest off the tee: Nike with 218 carry.
Best average smash factor: Nike at 1.48

These clubs really were very close. The Titleist was the least forgiving but, most fun to hit.

Bombtech and Nike were really head to head. Bombtech better off the carpet. The deeper face of the Nike better off the tee.

In a world of direct to marker, e-commerce and big box stores, where do small local golf shops fit in?

Lately​, that is a question that I have been asked and have been asking myself. I (out of necessity) have learned to re-grip, reshaft, do swing weighting and spine/ FLO on clubs. What started as a hobby is turning out to be more.

In all honesty. Would you buy your clubs from the local guy if the prices were competitive with online? What would you want out of your local shop? Apparel? Equipment? Custom fittings? Or is the Golf Shop as we know it dead?

You're honest feedback is needed.

On a cold 34° day in Aloha Oregon I put these three bad boys against one another. Which one do you think came out on top. +BombTech Golf​​, +Nike Golf​​ or Titleist?

Let me start by saying, "I love Golf." I love the game and all it entails. I love the feel of a well struck shot, the sense of freedom and the comradery that we have with our fellow golfers. I love that I can stand on the first tee with someone I have never met and have a friend at days end. I love that two people who are diametrically opposite can bond over one well struck shot. I LOVE THIS GAME.

As of late though, I am finding that my love for some of the people who play this game with me is wavering. That friendship never is realized by the 18th green. More often than not I am isolating myself to my core golfing buddies. I have begun to ask myself why that is. What has changed?

I feel the game of Golf is stalling out right now. Older golfers aren't passing that love of the game over as readily. It's like they are trying to hold on to something. How does the game progress without that sharing of the game, the love for the game and the awe of the young player piping it down the gut.

When I was in my twenties I loved being paired with older guys. They'd hit it down the middle and end the day around par. I'd bomb it to no where, dig my way out and always end up well above par. But those guys taught me so much. They taught me that long is a great ego stroker but, the fairway is where the score was. They taught me how to drink whiskey and the importance of being positive. (Mostly the alcohol)

I hope that these guys aren't lost to us. I hope I become one of them. I hope to teach tradition, respect and love of the game and fellow golfers for years to come. I truly hope that you do as well. Because, I love this game and I'm pretty sure that you do as well.

If you read this all the way, thank you. It is my rant for the night.

While these two drivers look different they are very similar looking as well. Which one would you choose? I think I like the +Bridgestone Golf​ J815 over the TaylorMade.

The reviews on this ball are great. We're talking Pro-V1x quality. I'll be picking some up soon. And yes $30 for 24 balls.
