As the site of the 2006 PGA Grand Slam of Golf, Hawaii’s Poipu Bay Golf Course has the honor of hosting Tiger Woods, Mike Weir, Geoff Ogilvy and Jim Furyk at one of the most prestigious events in golf. Podcast host Dave Bernertalks to the club’s director of golf, Craig Sasada, about the course and who’s likely to come out on top at the event.
“The overwhelming favorite has to be somebody like Tiger,” Sasada says. “But you know, Jim Furyk has won every event that he’s played in Hawaii. He’s very accustomed to Bermuda grass and the wind, so he will be a factor against Tiger for sure.”
Laughlin, Nevada, may not be known as a thriving golf town, but the scene is gathering steam as more and more people flock to the city, according to WorldGolf.com Editor Bill Wolfrum, who recently went there.
“Right now it’s really the hotspot,” he says. “Really, in that area they’ve been fighting to keep the golf up with the population explosion. The town didn’t start that long ago, and it took a while to catch on. But right now it’s really the place where a lot of people are moving, and they’re looking for places to play golf, especially this time of year.”
Plus, keep your swing sharp this winter with the P3ProSwing, a golf simulator and swing analyzer.
“Basically, it’s a rubber mini mat that’s got a bunch of sensors, and it picks up your club path going back and your club path coming through,” says Ron Montesano of the TravelGolf.com blog squad. “And it pretty much tells you where you’re swing is … and from that you can judge what you need to do to correct it.”
