  • It is official: the latest trend on the PGA Tour is high-top golf shoes. Rory McIlroy is gaming the new Nike Flyknit Chukka at the Northern Trust L.A. Open. This comes right on the heels (pun intended) of the media craze around Rickie Fowler’s Puma high-tops and joggers. Fashion is now hitting the PGA Tour in a new way. We are now seeing some players transition from athletic golf wear to more casual outerwear. What do you think about the new trend? Will you be buying a new set of high-tops or chukkas?

  • Golf Channel and CBS certainly hyped up the probability of Phil Mickelson winning the Pebble Beach National Pro-Am, citing the fact that he has converted over 80% of his outright 54-hole leads. The fact is that the 45 year old Mickelson was (and still is) in the longest drought of his career. He has not won in the past 2 seasons and was seeking to reestablish himself as a relevant in the conversation of best players currently playing the PGA Tour; not just a hall-of-famer. While this loss to Vaughn Taylor may sting for the big lefty, his eyes are […]

  • Bridgestone Golf has made significant improvements to it’s B330 line of golf balls. The most heralded improvement is the SlipRes cover that took the leading rubber manufacturer four years to perfect. The cover is supposed to produce less driver spin and increase compression for more length off the tee, more spin from the rough and around the greens and more durability. Bridgestone claims that this ball “repairs itself”, making it the longest lasting ball the company has ever produced. Click here for a video about the SlipRes cover and here for a player’s perspective of the new ball.

  • The new XR drivers look wicked! The fact that Callaway stepped out of the box and worked with aerodynamic engineers from Boeing really shows their commitment to making this release a memorable one. The smooth ripples on the sole of the driver help funnel the air and effectively reduce drag for faster swing speeds. These really are great looking drivers. The rage these days is building an aerodynamic sole, very light crown and hot face. Callaway has not tried to ‘reinvent the wheel’ here but they have made a significant improvement over the previous XR generation.

  • Have you ever wanted to zip your full wedge shots back to the pin like a tour pro? How about executing a nice one hop’n’stop shot from the fringe in front of the green? Many golfers would love to spin the ball more from around the green. Enter Callaway’s MD3 wedge. The grooves on this wedge are so aggressive that players who normally spin the ball more are reporting the more wear on the urethane ball cover. The secret to the spin is using three different groove patterns on different parts of the club face. Callaway’s MD3 is, without question, […]

  • With the recent release of the annual “Hot List” I decided to test how hot some of the gold-rated player’s are. Personally, I prefer a players iron to a game improvement iron but today’s manufacturers are mixing the two categories and coming up with some really great clubs. No club is more evident of this than the Titleist AP2 iron. Irons with more accuracy and forgiveness but the classic thinner top line is becoming an industry standard. We have most of the clubs that received a score of “Gold” on the Hot List in our Airport store, so I put […]

  • Pure, pure, pure, PURE!…and I’m not talking about the grips. Wow! The new Parsons Extreme Golf (PXG) 3-wood is as good as it gets. The club is beautiful (see below). The crown is a sort of matte gray-ish color that really exudes confidence. The sole of the club features 11 weight ports and moveable weights to help you dial in your launch conditions. I also like the no-nonsense white painted grooves on the face. The PXG 0341 fairway wood is more than just a pretty face though; this thing GOES! I have never felt a better fairway wood shot off […]

  • Shortly after receiving the demo M2 driver I had it in my hands. Much has been speculated about the M1’s little brother but I needed to see the difference for myself. TaylorMade is billing the M2 as the driver more suited for higher handicappers who are looking for more forgiveness, higher launch and a straighter ball flight. The M2 is a 460cc head with no adjustable weighting system. I compared the M2 to an M1 460cc headset up between straight and fade bias as well as in the middle of the front-to-back (ball flight) weight. I used an PING’s nFlight […]
