Nike's Sumo hybrid golf club, golfing in Hawaii, PGA Pro Chuck Evans on taking your "range swing" to the golf course
Hear this latest episode of TravelGolf.com This Week.
Nike’s Sumo golf club line has been a great success. In this week’s podcast, host Dave Berner talks to National Golf Editor Tim McDonald about the new Nike Sumo hybrids.
“These are square hybrids. They’re really compact, but when I swung them I just really liked the way they felt in my hands,” McDonald says. “Some of the other hybrids, I think, are just too big. I loved them right off the bat.”
Senior Staff Writer Chris Baldwin is off to Hawaii for a golf trip. He talks about his expectations for what is many a golfer’s dream.
“It’ll probably be one of those golf trips of a lifetime,” Baldwin says. “It seems like once people go once, they tend to go back. The scenery – I’m expecting some spectacular scenery.”
You know you’ve been there: Hitting it great on the range but crappy on the golf course. Desperate for help, Equipment Editor Kiel Christianson seeks Berner’s advice.
“It’s the bane of my golfing existence, and I just cannot understand it,” he says. “I can’t afford therapy, so that’s why I’m talking to you.”
Berner didn’t have the answer, so he brought in PGA Professional Chuck Evans, director of instruction at the Medicus Golf Institute.
This “is not unusual at all,” Evans says. “Most people are scratch or better on the driving range but have a degree of difficulty taking it from the practice tee to the golf course.”
This podcast is supported by Scotland Golf Tours and Golf Canada’s West.
