In my welcoming blog, you read a pretty bold statement where I claimed that GOLFING WITH ROB is the only true golf review site. Due to the boldness of that statement, I want to layout further the premise of this statement, which will help you understand and get the most out of the information posted on this site.
What makes my site so special?
The core of this site provides you the ability to measure golf equipment against a specific standard known as a benchmark. I am willing to bet you are more familiar with ways to measure performance in this manner than you realize. to view the benchmark click here
If I told you that I drove a car that went really fast, what you that mean to you?
Probably Not much
But why?! It's because we are used to having speed measured at a particular rate. Taking it one step further and adding our first benchmark, I now inform you that my car can go for 0-60 MPH.
That's Still not saying much because all vehicles can go 60 miles per hour.
We are missing another critical component: a time frame to measure how quickly my car gets up to 60 MPH.
We have one benchmark in place, and now I add a second by telling you my car can go from 0-60 in 5 seconds.
So...is my car fast?
The quickness of my car is still unknown, but there is now a way to measure its performance against all others and or if I make adjustments to my cars' engine, I have a way to measure the results.
Before I conclude, this post lets see if my car is fast. Let's say I drive a Chevrolet Camaro SS 1LE that goes from 0-60 in 3.5seconds, with 5 seconds being the slowest mark.
Is that fast?
When compared to the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution coming in at 0-60 in 4.5 seconds, the answer is yes, but when matched up against the Ford Shelby GT, not so much as it reaches 60 mph in 3.3 seconds.
In reality, my car is a Jeep Wrangler, so I would be able to safely comment on which of these cars have the most beautiful taillights.
In conclusion, without the two benchmarks of 0-60 miles per hour and a set time frame to reach this speed, it would be impossible to rate a car's performance in terms of how quickly it accelerates. The same is true in measuring the performance of golf equipment. Without an established benchmark, it is impossible to measure how well a golf club, golf ball, correct club fittings, grip sizes, or any other piece of golf equipment performs. At Golfing with Rob, I provide you all the necessary information needed to not only see how a product performs; you will also be able to make comparisons to other like equipment.
