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: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:

Small Fix (Elbow) Makes Big Drives
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).

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.ANSAI Men's Mobile Warming Softshell Vest (Black, X-Large) ANSAI Women's Mobile Warming Softshell Vest (Black, X-Large)
