Apr 30th

The newer Puma’s Cell Fusion shoes are high performance waterproof leather golf shoes.  They are fitted with Smart Quill spikes that are removable and “configurable”. The quills can be locked into varying positions to provide extra solid traction from the most crucial angles.

These Puma golf shoes, are light and comfortable, this is achieved through Puma “iCell” technology, their cells provide cushioning and padding without sacrificing traction or performance. Puma states that golfers will have superior traction on the course with this newer Cell Fusions shoes however they also say that you might need a little time to get used to the shoes performance as they have no slippage and your balance will adjust to this new feeling. Once you get used to the extra traction, your iron shots may become very solid and distance can be improved.

Drive like the pros…

Apr 27th

Can you imagine being 20 years old and driving a Lamborghini?

Unbelievable! You know you have far too much money when your most important decision is what sports car you want to drive in a country with few real roads to accommodate it. Golf truly is an elitist , dare I say it, sport!!! Paying grown men and women millions of dollars for hitting a little ball in a huge field. We truly deserve the misery that we get for supporting professional sports the way we do!!!

But if I have his money and talent, I probably do the same.

Every time Golf Channel or one of the networks pulls away from the live action at Riviera or Pebble Beach or the Accenture world match-play event, The Dude grabs the remote control to do some channel surfing for 150 seconds or so...Source

Parkland or Links Golf Courses – Which is Best?

Apr 22nd

Many people believe that the word ‘links’ refers to the way the end of one golf hole defines the beginning of the next – rather like the links of a chain.
This is not so but it actually comes from the Old English word ‘hlinc’ meaning a stretch of flat ground along the seashore. And that is exactly what it is like.
Sea on one side, land on the other (often the houses on the edge of the town form the boundary). It is a naturally occurring terrain usually on a well drained sandy soil.

The parkland course on the other hand is ‘purpose built’ and is often much more hilly and varied in terrain than the links course. Also, the presence of trees offers a different kind of hazard from those found on a links. Each course has its own type of problems and challenges but the links course probably calls for rather more ‘invention’ or ‘adaptation’ in the way the shots are played.…source.

Goodbye to Golf at 28

Apr 21st

Lorena Ochoa began every news conference with the sweetest “Hello” in golf. Now, at a mere 28 years old, she’ll say goodbye to a tour that she dominated for several years. While the timing of Ochoa’s impending retirement came as a shock, the fact that she’s walking away so early in her career was expected.

Ochoa long has made it clear she would not mix family and golf. She married AeroMexico CEO Andres Conesa in December and began a new chapter in life. Most assumed Ochoa would play until 2012, when she’d qualify for the LPGA Hall of Fame after 10 seasons, but accolades have never meant more to Ochoa than family.

“Well, I think life is too short, and I always say that I want to play golf and be there 100 percent and be very competitive, and my goal is to stay in that No. 1 position as long as I play,” Ochoa said at the Kraft Nabisco Championship. “And then just different stage for my life (when starting a family) I want to be home. I want to be with my husband. I want to every day do things and be at one place, not traveling with a suitcase. I have that very clear.”

Ochoa’s thoughts won’t be known until her Friday news conference in Mexico City, but good friend Sophia Sheridan said the word in Ochoa’s camp is that she simply wasn’t enjoying the game anymore. That was obvious in Ochoa’s actions. The world No. 1’s on-course tantrums were becoming routine. But wait, there’s more
