High Performance Rain Wear: Nike HyperAdapt

Nike recently unveiled a new line of foul weather golf gear designed to deliver superior waterproof and windproof protection combined with flexible breathability. According to Nike, the new HyperAdapt Storm-Fit Jacket, available in both Full-Zip and ½-Zip versions, and HyperAdapt Storm-Fit Pants offer golfers unsurpassed comfort, protection and mobility. These claims were immediately bolstered when Paul Casey, winless in over 2 years, claimed the Irish Open while wearing both the HyerAdapt Jacket and Pants during the 35 mph winds and heavy showers that plagued the event.

Adjustability Made Easy: The New TaylorMade SLDR Driver

The adjustable driver has been around for awhile, and every major manufacturer has embraced the technology, at least to some degree. TaylorMade has been committed to adjustable drivers and moveable weight technology since 2004, but the benefit of adjustability has been lost to a vast number of golfers who have no desire to delve into the complexities of tinkering with loft, lie, face angle and weighting. Taken to its extreme, adjustability for the average golfer may seem just a bit gimmicky. For those who haven’t embraced the adjustability craze, and just as importantly, for those who have, the new TaylorMade SLDR (“Slider”) Driver offers quick and easy adjustability that just about anyone can understand—and from which everyone can benefit.

Ashworth Cardiff Sets Major Record

Heading into the US Open at Merion Golf Club there was talk that someone might shoot 62, breaking the 18 hole scoring record that has been in the books since 1973. It became obvious early in the tournament that no scoring records would be broken at this particular Open, but there was one record that was established. When Justin Rose tapped in for par on the 72nd hole for what would be a 2 stroke victory, he became the first golfer to win a Major championship while wearing spikeless golf shoes. He did so wearing a version of the Ashworth Cardiff Golf Shoe.   Golfers everywhere have embraced the spikeless golf shoe, and cleat-less shoes are turning up at Tour events on a regular basis, as well, despite the fact that golfers tend to hold tight to tradition. As club technology has proven, however, golfers don’t care one whit about tradition if they can gain a competitive edge. When it comes to our feet, that edge has to do with the comfort and performance afforded by a less rigid shoe. Thus, sales of spikeless shoes were up 136% in 2012 and estimates of their current use among all golfers ranges between 38% and 43%.   The spikeless shoe itself has undergone a technological transformation since CBS obligingly introduced the world to Ecco Golf Street casual golf shoes via repeated shots of the king of cool, Fred Couples, looking bored, indifferent, and in contention at the 2010 Masters. Today’s styles feature a variety of innovative design elements geared toward enhancing the natural motion of the foot, while also delivering the stability a golfer needs to swing with power and confidence. From the new sneaker-like Adidas adicross Tour Spikeless Golf Shoe to the classic-looking Ecco Men’s Tour Hybrid GTX, there are styles and colors available for every taste.   Check out the Ashworth Cardiff and all our spikeless golf shoes at DGW today.

Justin Rose and TaylorMade Winners at US Open

The USGA likes to say they set up the US Open venue to identify the very best player as our nation’s champion. And despite the fact that this isn’t always the case—see Michael Campbell–Justin Rose clearly fit that description for the Open just ended at Merion Golf Club. In the end, he struck the ball better and putted better than anyone else through 4 rounds on what appeared to be the hardest golf course on the planet. Particularly impressive were his clutch putting, including a 20 footer for birdie on 13 that tied him for the lead, and his long iron play on both 17 and 18. Of course, he had to hit fairways to hit good iron shots, and none was more impressive than the drive on 18, setting up the opportunity to rip a 4 iron dead at the hole, and effectively eliminating any legitimate drama from Phil Mickelson’s finish.   Rose used a full complement of TaylorMade equipment, including the new Lethal Golf Ball. Here’s his bag:   Driver: TaylorMade R1 Fairway Wood: TaylorMade RBZ Stage 2 Tour Irons: TaylorMade RocketBladez Tour (3-6), Tour Preferred MB (7-PW) Wedges: TaylorMade ATV (52°, 56°, 60°) Putter: TaylorMade Spider Blade Ball: TaylorMade Lethal   Check out DGW today for all your TaylorMade equipment needs.

Named “Tee it Forward,” this relatively new “program” is really no program at all. It’s common sense. And it requires virtually no math skills or imagination to implement. As the name suggests, the idea is to encourage most golfers to start playing a course that is more suited to the distances they actually hit the ball and the skill level they possess by teeing off from a set of tees forward from those they customarily use. The object is to shorten courses to a more realistic level of playability for the average golfer. The only hard thing about this idea is tossing aside your ego.     We all know the guys who insist on playing from the tips, no matter the slope or course rating. I know those guys. I used to be one of them. The Tee it Forward concept suggests that most of us have no business playing from the same set of tee blocks the pros play. The PGA and USGA tell us that playing a 7200 or 7300 yard course is equivalent to a professional playing from 8100 yards, or so. The pros don’t do that and neither should we. Most of us simply don’t hit the ball as far and certainly not as consistently as professionals. Read the rest of this entry »

One of the Hottest Shafts in Golf

Are you playing Aldila, or just graphite? There is good reason why Aldila has led the golf shaft cialis sale industry in the last year. It’s continually on the edge of design and innovative technology. As of last week, Aldila has won both wood and hybrid shaft manufacturer counts on the PGA Tour 26 times in the past 30 weeks. According to the Darrell Survey, Aldila had 17 more wood shafts and 5 more hybrid shaft than the next leading shaft manufacturer at the Reno-Tahoe Open, led by the RID’d NV golf shaft. Aldila has become the choice of many PGA professionals. Perhaps, thanks to Reverse Interlaminar Placement Technology™ (RIP). It transforms the shaft design from the inside out to maximize the high performance carbon fiber properties to lower torque and increase hoop stiffness for greater accuracy and shot control. Plus, its deadly accurate in driving distance. Most golfers that have tried Aldila will say how it changed their trajectory, redefined how a power swing should feel, and overall improves the game. Its great for those trying to create a higher launch angle or increase swing speed because they come a full range of shafts and weights for the strong hitters or average golfers. Aldila also won the hybrid shaft count at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational and at the Cox Classic on the Nationwide Tour. At the end of major golf season, Aldila has 104 wins in the PGA Championship and the next closest competitors are at 91 and 79 for second and third places. So, you decide. But the Tour numbers help speak for themselves…Aldila is here to stay and engineer golf shaft technology for the best success in your game.

Tiger Woods Switches to Nike Method Milled Putter at British Open

UPDATE It’s official — Tiger Woods announced that he is switching to the Nike Method Milled 001 Putter because of greens conditions at St. Andrews for the British Open tournament. According to Nike Golf tour field manager Rick Nichols, the Nike Method putter for TW matches the specifications of his old Scotty Cameron putter, with identical lie angle, a single alignment dot on the head and a blacked-out PING grip. The only difference in specs is a 1° less loft of 2.5°. The Nike Method 001 Putter was designed with Tiger’s input two years ago, and has been a backup putter if the Scotty Cameron got damaged or wasn’t suitable for course conditions. Check out the links below to learn more about the Nike Method Putters and how it can change your game for the better! Read the rest of this entry »

USGA Wedge Rule Change, How Does It Affect You?

You remember the 1987 R.E.M. song “It’s the End of the World As We Know It“? Well for today’s golfer, December 31, 2010, will be the end of the world as we know it in regards to wedges. What? Why? What are you talking about? I’m talking about the USGA decision to change the rule regarding the grooves on wedges. As of December 31, 2010, golf club manufacturers will no longer be able to produce wedges with large square grooves that most golfers have grown to love. The new grooves must be smaller and much shallower in comparison; about 30% smaller to be exact. Read the rest of this entry »
