Callaway X Hot Fairway Wood Review

Callaway Tour professional, Gary Woodland, is just like the rest of us, it seems. Not long ago he put a new three wood in the bag, one that had been fitted to his exact specifications. After playing it for a number of rounds, however, Woodland was unhappy and took it back to the Callaway Tour trailer for a new shaft. The reason? He was hitting his new Callaway X Hot Pro Three Wood too far! It seems that his normal three wood specs, configured with his new X Hot Pro Fairway Wood, resulted in his having too much firepower on par fives. He was forced to choke down and throttle back, so he actually replaced his Graphite Design prototype shaft with a heavier X-100 steel model to take something off the 294 yards he was hitting his 17 degree X Hot Pro (into the wind).   The rest of us will never have that problem, but we can have the same fairway wood. The new X Hot and X Hot Pro Fairway Woods are the longest ever produced by Callaway. These new fairway woods borrow the forged cup face design from Callaway drivers, moving the weld line away from the face to allow more control over face thickness and tolerances. Because of this new design, and through the use of high strength 455 Carpenter steel, the new Callaway X Hot face is 40% thinner than last year’s RAZR X Black fairways. The X Hot Fairway Woods tested right at the USGA’s limit for spring-like effect. That means distance. That is what we all crave.   The X Hot Fairway line offers performance without having to increase club head size, or add a slot to the sole. Engineers also reconfigured the weighting of the sole through an internal wave-shaped pad that acts to push the center of gravity slightly forward and low to reduce spin. Together, these design and material elements make the X Hot line truly worthy of the name. They are Hot!   Order your X Hot or X Hot Pro Fairway Wood today at DGW.

Cleveland 588 Altitude Irons: New Product Review

Cleveland Golf just introduced the new 588 Altitude Irons. Constructed with a full hollow body design, these “hybrid irons” are for any golfer seeking distance, height and forgiveness.  Each iron in the set is engineered to provide optimum, flight, forgiveness and feel, according to Cleveland.   The Altitudes have advanced internal weighting that promotes a low and deep center of gravity for both high launch and maximum distance. The company says the center of gravity is 13% lower and 121% deeper compared to a typical game-improvement iron resulting in iron shots that are easier to hit with proper trajectory. This is possible because of the hollow body construction that offers hybrid-like playability through each iron in the set.   Each club offers Face Forged® Technology that enhances ball speed and delivers feel. Cleveland says the Altitudes are designed for customization through a notch in the hosel that allows change in lie angle by three degrees up or down and loft by two degrees weaker or stronger. This is a significant acknowledgement by a company that higher handicap players can benefit from custom-fitting options, as well.   The 588 Altitude Irons are available in 3-SW for both men and women in graphite or steel shafts. Cleveland will begin shipping these new hybrid-irons November16, 2012.   Pre-order your set of the new 588 Altitude Irons at DGW today.

New Cleveland 588 RTX Wedge Review

The 588 RTX CB Wedges a best work from home re set to begin shipping November 16, 2012, just in time to add them to your Christmas list. This newest offering is the latest in a long line of the iconic 588s, the wedge that changed the way we think about the short game. In an era where many manufacturers name a club either through the marketing department, or by alluding to some dubious technological breakthrough, Cleveland is decidedly old school, in that the names of their clubs typically have meaning.

Play Golf All Year With New Nike Outerwear

Fall is here, and for those who live in a four season climate, or in a place where the temperatures fluctuate greatly, that means some of the best golfing weather of the year. Cool, sunny days and firm, fast conditions make for great golf. There was a day when most of us would hang up our clubs following Labor Day and not play again until late March or early April. The reason we used to quit when the weather turned? There was no such thing as cold weather apparel–at least for the golfer. Anyone who played cool or cold weather golf back in the day knows that the clothing was simply not conducive to enjoying a round. Heavy, bulky sweaters and jackets made swinging a golf club a chore. A lack of wind-resistant fabric allowed the wind to cut through even heavy wool sweaters, dissipating the warmth offered by all those layers.   Today, golfers are fortunate to have lightweight, warm, breathable and wind resistant fabrics that make golfing in cooler, and even cold temperatures a much more enjoyable pastime. Consequently, there is no longer any reason to hang up the clubs for the winter. Nike Golf wants you to keep playing golf–all year long. Read the rest of this entry »
