Golf Tips from the Golf Partners Club's Newsletters:
GOLF TIPS: Equipment, Travel, Discounts and Deals, and just some funny videos.
I have been a life long member of the PGA Partners Club. They have exciting news about the future of the Club! They are moving in a new direction after 12 great years as partners with the PGA TOUR. Effective January 1, 2010, the Club ceased its affiliation with the TOUR and began a new partnership with GOLF Magazine.
As a result, they are called Golf Partners Club. Going forward, all paid Club members will receive GOLF Magazine every month instead of PGA TOUR Partners every other month. Please visit their new site: Golf Partners Club
I will still be posting these newsletters on a timely basis, and if you would like to join the Golf Partners Club please click this link:
In this "year of the fairway wood," it must be noted that not all players -- especially average players -- can hit a standard 15-degree fairway wood. With that in mind, TaylorMade-adidas Golf offers the RocketBallz HL 3 fairway wood with 17 degrees of loft.
It features the same white club head and Speed Pocket technology as other RBZ fairway woods, but for a lot of players -- particularly women and men with slower swing speeds -- this club is easier to get airborne on the fairway and out of light rough.
The RBZ HL 3 wood (suggested retail price $229.99) is a good weapon to have in your bag.
Nike Golf is on a roll with its lineup of golf shoes, and the TW 13 Free might be the best.
The TW 13 came about because Tiger Woods wanted a pair of shoes that felt and fit similar to the shoes he wore when training. So Nike Golf's shoe designers built a golf shoe with Nike's Free technology; this technology provides freedom of movement and close-to-the-ground feel and stability. Woods has worn the TW 13 since last summer, and now you can, too.
The TW 13 is available in black and white, with red accents. It's selling on shelves for $180 per pair. That might seem a bit steep, but you won't be disappointed. In fact, you won't look at golf shoes the same way again.
Well, Adams Golf thinks so, and we tend to agree that the company has its best-looking set of irons to date in the new Idea CMB irons.
Each of the CMB irons has a nickel-chrome satin finish and is forged from 1025 carbon steel. Each iron also features tungsten weighting low in the toe so that the center of gravity is centered in the score lines for better feel and minimal twisting at impact. The CMB basically looks like a blade but plays like a cavity-back iron, so it's a great for players of all skill levels.
The Idea CMB irons have a suggested retail price of $1,099.99 (steel) and $1,199.99 (graphite). They are available in right-hand only in regular, stiff and extra stiff flexes.
Since the first British Open Championship at Prestwick in Scotland in 1860, tournament spectators have seen the great, the good, the bad and the ugly. Players want to win the game's original major so badly that it makes them do some of the craziest things you'll ever see on a golf course. Check out these magnificent meltdowns:
Jean van de Velde (1999)
As the French would say, this is the crème de la crème of chokes.
Thomas Bjorn (2003)
Holding a two-shot lead with three holes to play, the delirious Dane took three shots to escape a greenside bunker on the par-3 16th at Royal St. George's.
Sergio Garcia (2007)
The volatile Spaniard, who often complains about his bad luck, missed a makeable 4-ft. putt on the 72nd hole that would've secured victory, and then he lost in a playoff.
Doug Sanders (1970)
Flashy dresser Sanders blew a 3-ft. putt on the 72nd hole, which resulted in a playoff won by Jack Nicklaus.
