When people think golf in Europe, Scotland and Ireland are usually the first places to jump to mind. But Portugal shouldn’t be overlooked. In this week’s podcast, host Dave Berner talks about the golf scene there with Brandon Tucker, who recently returned from a trip to Portugal
“The region I went to is on the west coast, on the Atlantic,” Tucker says. “It’s actually the farthest point west in continental Europe. It’s got a really cool scene. There’s about two-dozen courses out there, and tons more to do off the course.”
Last week the podcast included a segment about the demise of the fairway metal, which are being overrun by hybrids. But Equipment Editor Kiel Christianson says the Cleveland HIBORE Fairway woods are as good as any hybrid.
“Being a skeptic of just how useful these fairway woods are, I’ve been playing around with this HIBORE three wood a little bit, and I have to say it’s as close as a three wood can come to a hybrid,” he says. “This is one of the better [three woods] I’ve seen.”
Paul Moore, founder and CEO of PeakVision Sports, a maker of sport-specific eye lenses, talks about the popularity and design of the company’s golf lens.
“Our biggest success so far has been our golf lens,” Moore says. “You have certain lighting conditions out on the golf course that are very unique given the visual tasks that you’re trying to do as a golfer. We’ve put two different filters into one lens. The upper zone is for the sky, and the lower zone is tuned for green grass turf.”
Plus, Christianson talks about learning to play golf from his grandfather in this week’s installment of TravelGolf.com On Course.
“My grandfather taught me how to play golf,” Christianson says. “Throughout my childhood and into high school and college, grandpa and I would play one round a year, often only nine holes because the hip that he’d broken when I was a young child grew more painful over the years. But he knew it was usually the only golf I’d play all year because no one else in my family played, so he soldiered through.”
