Masters pet peeve: Lanny the Commentary Guy

16 feedbacks »
You can't stop the rain. And you can't help but give shots back around Amen Corner. And maybe you can't even stop dopey phtographers clicking during your backswing. But can someone please stop Lanny Wadkins? Perhaps no other announcer in the history o… more »

The first Masters blog on TravelGolf.com

2 feedbacks »
As The Masters begins, and golf bloggers from TravelGolf.com to Timbuktu start tippy-tapping their pudgy fingers till they're black and blue, I thought I'd take the briefest moment to blow my own horn. (I mean, hey, that's essentially what most bloggers… more »

Ecco Casual Cool Hydromax: Golf shoes have finally gotten cool

4 feedbacks »
I remember my grandfather’s golf shoes with a slight shudder. They were ratty leather wingtips and saddle-shoes with cardboard-thin and dangerously slick leather soles. They were always damp, inside and out, and after even nine holes, he’d complain o… more »

Nike SasQuatch does it again at The Player's Championship

1 feedback »
A couple of months ago, I pointed out that Nike's SasQuatch (SQ) driver was being used to win a lot of tournaments recently. With Stephen Ames's win at The Players Championship, this swoosh-dominance continues. Frankly, up until now I had not bee… more »

Author Bob Thomas develops new business model to distribute his golf books

2 feedbacks »
Golf novelist Bob Thomas, best known for his book, Ben Hogan’s Secret, is tired of fighting the publishing industry to try to get his work into the hands of readers. But is he giving up? No. Thomas grew up in an abusive household, and this made him… more »

Germany's Stulz Golf is changing the shape of shafts

2 feedbacks »
A couple of years ago, the founder of Vortex Golf, a new Japanese equipment company, showed me a driver shaft he’d developed. It was triangular, rather than cylindrical, and was thus not approved by the USGA or R&A. Just the other day, I ran acr… more »

USGA: Measure distance only; PGA: Don't measure at all

3 feedbacks »
Last year, the USGA and R&A both altered the rules f golf a bit to allow for laser devices to be used to measure distances during competition. The rule change allowed local committees to decide whether or not the devices could be used. Interesting… more »

Stuart Appleby promotes The Leaderboard for strength and swing training

3 feedbacks »
I like to work out. I like to golf. The problem is that I rarely feel that these two pursuits complement one another, at least in the way I do them. Two days ago I took part in a media conference call with Stuart Appleby, who recently won the Mercedes… more »

The Club Glove Aficionado III stand bag can be custom-fit

1 feedback »
If you’ve ever read my equipment reviews, you’ll know that I’ve always had a soft spot for golf bags. I love finding just the right pockets for my tees, balls, cigar cutter and lighter, gloves, flask, and assorted accoutrements. And I love that new… more »

When that "new club magic" wears off

Send feedback »
Raise your grip-calloused hands if this has ever happened to you: Your game is in the toilet. You're farther right than Fox News most days, and others you're so far left you make Michael Moore look like Ron Reagan. Distraught, you demo a club, or borr… more »

Penn & Teller & Johnny Miller cash in on golf blogger's good idea

3 feedbacks »
Ask anyone who knows me and they will agree with this one thing: I do not have a lot of good ideas. I'm the guy who lost my nest-egg investing in a hemophiliac rugby league (not one team survived the first season). Then there was that restaurant/beaut… more »

SMT Golf offers golf glove with a lifetime warranty

The weather in central Illinois has been warming up considerably (aside from today’s sleet), and I’ve wrestled my overloaded golf bag out of the basement and begun taking stock. Other than my swing, which seems to have completely abandoned me, just a… more »

Firethorn: Golf fashion no longer an oxymoron

7 feedbacks »
Over the past year, I’ve lost 25 pounds (50, if you add in the combined weight of all the golf balls I’ve hit astray). When I announced to my wife that I might just go out to buy some new golf clothes, she regarded me skeptically and asked, “Don’… more »

Heavy Putter gets weight-conscious, changes name to Boccieri

5 feedbacks »
I always liked the Heavy Putter, at least by name. The company never did respond to my requests to send a demo model for review, and my one experience with the heavy-bodied flat-stick was on a crowded practice green during a demo day. The engineering… more »

Upswing Golf: Ya gotta love plucky new equipment companies

2 feedbacks »
I once quoted some percentage of start-up golf equipment companies that go belly-up in less than three years. I can’t now find that percentage, but since it was a few years ago that I quoted it, the figure is probably outdated now anyway. The point… more »
