Hi everyone! We're back from holidays and ready to roll. We had a great time in Vancouver and SirPutts survived Las Vegas… although it sounds like he doesn't remember much! We've got all sorts of stuff to cover from last week so let's get to it!
Tour Edge Golf has introduced their new GeoMax irons… bringing the idea of high MOI to irons. The GeoMax irons feature a very wide sole and an extremely high MOI. Tour Edge touts these as "a cavity back iron on steroids". Watch for these in the coming weeks… and be sure to check them out on the Tour Edge Golf website .
Tour Edge is also releasing the GeoMax putter, GeoMax hybrid and Exotics Xtreme spin wedge. The wedge looks kind of interesting… the carbon club features a removable sole screw to help the golfer dial in the swingweight.
The guys over at G.R.I.P. Golf have developed a unique way to support the troops. The company is launching a trade-in program that offers customers a credit towards G.R.I.P. golf clubs when they trade-in their used equipment. This used equipment will then be shipped to the troops through the Tee Off For The Troops campaign. This is a great way to get some new equipment and help a great cause. Swing by the G.R.I.P. website for more details!
Congrats to Steve Stricker for his big win on the weekend. Stricker was using a full bag of Titleist equipment including a 905T driver, 906F2 fairway wood, 585.H hybrid, 755 irons, Vokey wedges and a Pro V1 golf ball. It's pretty tough to not cheer for Steve Stricker and it's great to see him win! Titleist actually had a huge weekend worldwide including a European Tour win.
Don't be shocked if you see your favorite Callaway staffer sporting a teal golf bag. The company is helping raise awareness of ovarian cancer with the release of a limited number of teal FT-i drivers, hat, balls and towels. Callaway is donating the proceeds from the sale of these items to help fight the disease. A very cool idea! Check out the Callaway Golf Foundation website for more details.
And finally… let's head over to the mailbag for a quick hitter!
What would be possible indicators that my club shafts are too stiff?
There could be a number of factors that you would notice from a shaft being too stiff:
– ball flight too low
– ball tends to go to the right (for a right handed golfer), or slice
– the shaft just feels too stiff. If it feels like you are swinging a piece of rebar this is an easy indication that the shaft is too stiff. You should be able to feel the head of the golf club throughout the entire swing.
That's all for tonight. We've got lots more on the way including our SirShanksAlot.com Golf Company Of The Year 2007! Expect more news on that next week. Thanks again for the emails… keep 'em coming!
