Mother’s Day Gifts 2021: Honoring Mom, Mother Earth, and Golf

As an outdoor activity that naturally allows for social distancing, golf has become an outlet for people who only played once or twice a year in the before times. And at my localContinue reading “Mother’s Day Gifts 2021: Honoring Mom, Mother Earth, and Golf”

Titleist TSi woods and hybrids: Terminate the golf ball

Remember the Terminator movies? Skynet was the artificial neural network-based conscious group mind and artificial general super-intelligence system that built the Terminators. And the Terminators were nigh-indestructible metal killing machines. Imagine if Skynet made golf clubs instead of cybernetic monsters, and the only killing was the murdering of golf balls. Oh, what a wonderful (future)Continue reading “Titleist TSi woods and hybrids: Terminate the golf ball”

Cleveland RTX ZipCore wedges deliver on all shots for all golfers

Full disclosure: I’ve always been a big fan of Cleveland Golf wedges.

And this time, Cleveland’s new ZipCore wedgesContinue reading “Cleveland RTX ZipCore wedges deliver on all shots for all golfers”

Wilson D7 Irons set pace in “players distance” category

There are a number of iron categories: “tour,” “player,” “game improvement,” “super game improvement.” Then of course there is the distinction between “forged” and “cast” irons.

Sacks Parente Series 54LH Mallet Putter excels in design & performance

“Counter-weighting” has been a big trend over the past couple of decades, especially on putters. The idea behind weighted grips, weighted shafts, weighted plugs inserted into the top putter shaft, etc., is that distributing the weight more equally along the length of the putter promotes a one-piece take-away without extra hand and wrist movement. WhenContinue reading “Sacks Parente Series 54LH Mallet Putter excels in design & performance”

“The Old Man and the Green” – Father’s Day Golf Gifts for Dad’s Eternal Pursuit of Perfection

When I was a boy, my dad was always busy working. So busy that he didn’t have time for golf – had never even set foot on a course until he was well into his 70s, when he rode along in the cart with my daughter and me once. He said he really enjoyed that,Continue reading ““The Old Man and the Green” – Father’s Day Golf Gifts for Dad’s Eternal Pursuit of Perfection”
