Good evening and thanks for stopping by. We're got a few odds and ends to get to tonight as the golf business is slowly awakening from winter hibernation.
Cleveland's 2009 Launcher irons are set to hit the market on April 1. This new set looks to be a noticeable improvement over the previous Launcher irons and I'm very interested to get some customer/reader feedback. I found the previous Launcher irons did what they were suppose to do but really lacked in the cosmetics department. Cleveland has cleaned up the look and has added 3 hybrids to the mix. These are still really big irons but I think the addition of hybrids should really help. As an added, limited time bonus… Cleveland will throw in a free stand bag with the purchase of a set of Launcher irons.
Cleveland Golf has also introduced the Launcher Ultralite driver… basically a Launcher driver designed for slower swing speeds. The club is 30 grams lighter than the standard Launcher driver and offers 12 degrees of loft. The club is also slightly longer than standard to help increase swing speed. The Launcher Ultralite will start shipping on March 1.
Scotty Cameron has introduced a new Mallet… the Kombi. The putter will be available in standard, mid and long lengths and is crafted from 6061 Aircraft Aluminum. The club also features 3-point Studio Select Weighting… weights in the heel, toe and back. Watch for the Kombi in April.
If you've got a good eye you might have noticed the most recent addition to our site. "The Buzz" is something that we've wanted to do for a while but didn't really have the time to set it up. The premise is pretty simple… it's a section that we can update at anytime from any computer or cell phone. We often get bits and pieces of news throughout the day but often times it's not enough to create a whole post around. The Buzz allows us to get you folks this information right away and then we can elaborate on it in a later post. The hope is that we can get you even more info on a daily basis. Check it out… it's on the front page, about halfway down.
Finally… thanks to Barry Rhodes for the rules video we've posted. There's a real lack of rules stuff on the net and I think the video does a nice job of explaining a common situation. Check out his website for addition information.
Thanks for dropping by! Talk to you soon…
