MLA Tour XDream Putter

When it comes to putting, I’ve tried it all. I’ve always considered putting to be my weakness, even if the numbers don’t support that. Turns out I’m a good putter for my handicap, so perhaps I’m being a little too hard on myself. It’s just that I expect to make more putts than I do, […]

Biion Builds a Better Golf Shoe

Since taking up golf in the early 1990’s, I’ve tried on a lot of different golf shoes. In fact, my golf shoe collection is getting a bit ridiculous with over two dozen pairs and counting. However, I have only three or four favorites that I wear consistently. The rest only come out once in a […]

Leupold GX-2i2 Rangefinder

It wasn’t that long ago that I remember playing golf without any distance measuring devices other than a bush around the 150 yard mark in the fairway. Along came the 100, 150, 200 and 250 yard markers, then sprinkler heads all over the course were marked with yardages. From there, it wasn’t long before laser […]

Ping G30 Driver – Get One!

Normally when writing a review of a club, I’ll start with an introductory paragraph, then tell you a bit about the design and specs of the club before describing how it plays. This time however, I feel compelled to flip the script and tell you how the story ends first. Quite simply, the Ping G30 […]

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 […]

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 […]

TaylorMade Introduces Tour Preferred Irons

TaylorMade is at it again. More new clubs! This time they are addressing a segment of the market that has been lacking in recent years – low handicap golfers.

If I could only use one word to describe TaylorMade Golf for the past 3 or 4 years, I think it would be: Prolific. pro·lif·ic (prəˈlifik) adjective: present in large numbers or quantities; plentiful. TaylorMade is everywhere. Go to any major sporting goods retailer, golf store or green grass pro shop and you are likely to see […]
