I have been such a slacker on The Deep Rough the past year. Coincidentally, our first child, Sophia, is having her first birthday in a couple of weeks! I just got around to approving a bunch of old comments that were stuck in the spam filter, thanks for those, sorry for the slow response! Also, [...]
Today we are going to have a closer look at a website that offers a handicap tracking service. There are numerous sites out there that offer this (oobgolf is probably one of my favorite), so, GolfHandicapCalculator has their work cutout for them.
Jackets with “MobileWarming” technology to keep a golfer comfortable during the coldest of rounds, strategically weighted clubs that steady a nervous swing and even socks worn by PGA TOUR stars. No, this isn’t a self-proclaimed golf junkie dream; it’s the 2011 PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando. A closer look at the aforementioned products, as well as several others creating a buzz in 2011, after the jump.
A little while back we had a look at the PING i15 iron set, and really loved the blend of forgiveness and workability in a form factor that is pleasing to the eye of the better golfer. Today we are going to have a look at PING’s latest entry in the Super Game Improvement arena, the G15 irons. The PING G series of irons has been well respected for a number of years now, I still vividly remember the first time I picked up a G5 3 iron, my first swing launched the ball into the stratosphere and seemed to carry on forever. I had a brief love affair with the G10 irons and over the past few months have been trying to decide if the latest G15 irons could kick the i15 irons out of my bag.
So, four years ago the LPGA rolled into my town and hosted the HSBC World Match play at Hamilton Farm. My wife and I attended the event as spectators and had an absolute blast. One of the most amazing moments was watching Annika Sorenstam hole out for eagle on the 9th hole of the Highlands course. At the time, The Deep Rough was just starting out, and I used the event as inspiration for one of my first posts, a review of the HSBC World Match play. Sure, the post probably was not anything special, but I do not think it did anything but paint the LPGA in a positive light.
I knew Freddie Couples wore Ecco golf shoes, and while watching The Masters this past weekend, I was a little perplexed when I saw what looked to be street shoes? They looked pretty neat, but where were the classic Ecco golf shoes? Well, it seems that Ecco has come out with a new style of [...]
I was hoping to make it down to Orlando or the big PGA Merchandise Show starting today, received my media credentials and all. But alas, the ‘real life’ work schedule unfortunately gets in the way. If you are unfamiliar with the PGA Merchandise Show, it is a show where companies in the golf space come to pitch their wares to PGA professionals around the country. Tons of new products are always introduced at this event and we hope to bring you some information about those releases.
We have done holiday gift guides in the past and focused on larger, more expensive golf items. This year we will touch on some of those, but will primarily focus on smaller gifts and stocking stuffers.
