GOLF TIPS: Equipment, Travel, Discounts and Deals

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:

From the U.S. Ryder Cup meltdown to Rory's ascendency to World No. 1, the year had some spectacular happenings. Here are five moments we won't soon forget:

Tee Times, Handicap -- and Sanity 

Golf is hard, but everything leading up to actually playing the game should not be. Just think about how much time (gobs) you can spend nailing down:
  • Which course
  • What time and day
  • How much to spend
  • Whom to invite
Hitting the range before the round We've found a better way -- and it's free. It's called Golf Pipeline, and it takes care of 90 percent of all that futzing. Just sign up -- again, for free -- and invite your golf buddies to do the same. Then start booking. Select a tee time at a nearby course, choose which friends to play with and, all at once, electronically send out the word. Simple. When you finish your round, use Golf Pipeline to track your scores and your Handicap Index®; Golf Pipeline makes it a breeze to join a club licensed to use the USGA Handicap System™ in your area.

Small Fix (Elbow) Makes Big Drives

Ah, the elbow! Such a wonderful joint, but it's also such a point of power loss for golfers afflicted with the flying elbow, or "chicken wing." Whether it's simply a bad habit, fatigue or pressure, the elbows moving away from the body core (our power source) results in weak and mishit drives. We have less distance and less control because the arms move away from the swing plane and seldom get back on.

To get more from your core and to get more control, try this inexpensive, lightweight and portable Medicus ArmMaster. It's a training aid that straps on above your left and right elbows; this keeps your arms close to your core and your swing on plane. There's no more pulling your shoulder or wild over-swinging.

What's nice is that for Partner Advice readers the ArmMaster is now only $19.95(regularly $29.95).

Heated Vest: Stretch Your Season

 Oh sure, you're tough and you can keep gutting it out and playing in polar conditions; just throw on another layer. Or you can throw in the towel for the season (wimp).

Or you can pack some heat (literally) and wear Mobile Warming Heated Golf Outerwear.

We have a Mobile Warming heated vest, and it's one cool product. It's windproof and waterproof, and it features micro-alloy heating elements built into the back and chest areas. It's powered by a small, rechargeable lithium-ion battery with four adjustable heat settings. The battery lasts up to 2.5 hours when set at 100 percent (135 degrees F) and 10 hours when set at 25 percent (90 degrees F).

There's a Mobile Warming jacket, but we like the versatility of the vest for golf as well as taking the chill off when in the car.
