With Ryder cup ingrained in golfing legend, the battle between the EU and the US is well established to golfing fans. Golfbidder have paired with Rick and Pete to reignite this competition with the Mystery box, EU vs US edition. Rick and Pete were presented with a selection of clubs for selection, to build a bag.
Golfbidder teamed up with Rick Shiels, to investigate the progress made by Cobra, over the last 5 years. In this time span Cobra have released 5 new families of driver, with 20+ models within these families! A prolific releaser of clubs, indeed!
Golfbidder, once again teamed up with Rick Shiels to look into the progress made by PING drivers in the last 5 years. A relatively modest releaser of clubs, PING generally only release a new driver every 2 years, with 4 drivers to choose from in the time frame.
Rick Shiels came to Golfbidder with a question. How much difference is there between each of Callaway’s 24 driver releases in the last 5 years? We did not know, so we teamed up with Rick, providing every driver from the period, ready for a test.
Golfbidder collaborated with Rick Shiels to examine the last few years of TaylorMade drivers. Are the claims of innovation and extra yardage true, or are the new models a yearly facelift?
Golfbidder teamed up with Rick Shiels, providing the last few years of Titleist drivers, to find out, is this family tree really just a cosmetic update, or do the drivers improve over time?
How does the Test work?
Never has the phrase if it's not broke, don't fix it been more true than in the new Mizuno JPX iron family. The trend of the top Tour players playing the clubs they like, Mizuno are the furthest thing from broken imaginable - they're flying! And now, with the JPX921 irons, they're looking to go to even greater heights!
Bob Vokey. It is one of the most recognisable names in golf, a name synonymous with quality, dominance and excellence, a name you trust entirely. Yet, if you saw him walking down the street, the average golfer, (and probably most Tour players) wouldn't have the first clue who he is.
For obvious reasons, both Rick and Pete had a little extra fire in their bellies for the final instalment of the £500 challenge. After four matches, over the last four years, amazingly the score stands at two wins each! By the end of this series of videos, we'll have crowned the Golfbidder £500 challenge champion.
In 2019, the drill was the same; however, this year, there was a kicker. Once the bags were finalised Donal hosted the inaugural Golfbidder Putting Challenge in our new Putting Studio at our Chessington HQ. A sudden death shootout to award a mulligan to the winner. The first mini battle saw Pete hole his second putt to claim the lifeline for the round this year.
For the third instalment of the Golfbidder £500 challenge, Rick and Pete stand all square with both taking a commanding victory. With Donal again meeting them at Golfbidder HQ Rick and Pete are informed they're required to bring two drivers and two putters, and the public will decide the final build of the bag.
After the rampant popularity of the first Golfbidder £500 Challenge Rick and Pete returned to Golfbidder HQ, with Rick keen on revenge after Pete's commanding victory at Burhill. The venue this time, Bearwood Lakes - and the match, very different!
In March 2016, Rick Shiels and Peter Finch arrived at Golfbidder HQ, and the £500 challenge was born. The concept behind the videos is simple - Rick and Peter both receive £500 each and free reign of the Golfbidder inventory, to put together a second-hand set of clubs.
