2015 PGA Show – Best New Apparel

For those that attended the 2015 PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando, Florida for the first this year, they may have noticed that the apparel section of the Orange County Convention Center was as large as ever.

When it comes to playing golf in adverse conditions, it pays to be prepared. Most of the professional tours in the United States, Australia and South Africa follow the sun and the weather is usually good, but in Europe the conditions can be less than ideal.

Don’t Believe The Hype – TaylorMade’s Driver Alternatives

The driver is the most popular club in many people’s bag, and the one club that consumers change the most often. This is why you see the massive marketing campaigns for each new driver that golf club manufacturers release. I’ve seen the game evolve in the last 20 years on the professional tours as equipment […]

Game Golf – Review

For the last few years I’ve observed what I think is a transformation in the golf industry. I believe that innovation and technology has hit a wall with regards to equipment, largely because of the limits on performance imposed by golf’s governing bodies. Nowhere is this more evident than in the golf ball market. Having tested […]

Powerbilt Air Force One DFX Driver

When I was a young man in the early 90s and started taking golf seriously, wooden headed drivers and fairway woods were already on the way out. I remember talking to a few holdouts that swore they would never let go of their beloved Ping Eye2 woods, and one friend in particular would not let […]

SuperStroke Flatso Putter Grips

Back in 2007 while struggling with my putting I decided to take drastic measures and install a huge, weird-looking new putter grip called SuperStroke. It felt about as fat as a baseball bat, had a reverse taper design and it attached to the shaft of my putter using set screws, a couple of tap screws […]

Bridgestone True Balance Putters

Bridgestone Golf is one of the more conservative companies in golf.  They seem to know what they are good at, and they stick with it. By and large they release solid products, but don’t make waves around the golf world. Their most recent irons came out a few years ago without much fanfare. The J40 […]
