The idea was simple: To create the worlds finest golf shoe. They had to get it just right to satisfy a golfing fan’s exacting standards.  Four year’s later, the collection has launched and as you will see, the results are nothing short of perfection.

It all began when their designers discovered an artisan shoe maker in the heart of Italy, they then sourced the most technically-advanced American cleat technology and together they re-invented the golf shoe.

The collection is an ideal match of craftmanship & design revealing strong structure, elegant lines and exquisite finishing. They combine the past with the present, the classic with the adventurous and the simple with the daring.  Even the man who has everything might not have the world’s most luxurious golf shoe!

The finest French calf leather can be caressed on every pair when you slip your foot into velvety leather linings. The ocassional herringbone trim tops off the ensemble for minimal fuss and maximum style. If you are looking for the definition of luxurious sports footwear, the answer is right here.

Sweet Spot Golf Clubs – Think Pink

May 26th
2010

Sweet Spot Golf is a club manufacturer from the USA, making distinctively designed golf clubs for women. These distinctive golf clubs are eye catching, technically advanced and  part of profit on all sales of Sweet Spot clubs go to breast cancer research and awareness programs. Exclusively available via sweetspotgolf website which can be ordered in a variety of colors that are not just for show. They make up what Sweet Spot calls the “Precision Positioning System” (PPS) to help golfers with alignment, and PPS is found on all Sweet Spot clubheads.

Company president Brian Allman says the shaping of the clubheads is inspired by the aerodynamics found on the helmets of bicycle and downhill ski racers. Aerodynamics, Allman believes, is the next step for clubhead engineers and designers who are looking to provide the golfer with an edge while keeping within the rules of the game. This new design will allow the player to create more club head speed. Most recreational women golfers need help from their equipment in achieving the best launch angles to create club head speed, they typically have slower swing speeds so the aerodynamic shaping of the Sweet Spot clubheads are intended to provide some of that help.

A remarkable talent.

The story of Manuel De Los Santos is remarkable and uplifting by any standard, sporting or otherwise. Born in San Pedro de Macoris in the Dominican Republic, he was a promising young baseball star with dreams of playing professionally in the United States. But the age of 18, his life changed for ever when a car crashed into the motorbike he was riding and he awoke from a coma four days later to find his left leg had been amputated above the knee.

After he moved to France with his wife Elena, the second major turning-point in his sporting life came in 2004, when he watched the film, The Legend of Bagger Vance.
It told of a golfer (Matt Damon) inspired by his caddy (Will Smith) to overcome adversity. Similarly inspired, Manuel decided to take up golf.

Camillo Villegas who was wearing the JL belt collection is now wearing a belt from Red Bull.The multi million dollar deal which is over 5 years surely shows what a fashion item the belt has become and that the belt is no longer just for keeping your trousers up.Golf Belt Buckles

Vale do Lobo Ocean and Royal Golf Courses, Portugal

May 23rd
2010

A 36 hole treat of outstanding and challenging golf running along the Atlantic Ocean and including the famous 16th cliff hole on the Royal Course and stunning undulating fairways of the Ocean Course. Vale do Lobo resort was founded in 1962 and much has happened since Sir Henry Cotton laid out the first course at Vale do Lobo in the early 60s. Cotton’s original layout has been split in half to form two new courses, the Royal and the Ocean and many houses have sprung up around the course, creating some rather long walks between greens and tees.

While the Royal Course forces a player to hit the ball straight to stay out of trouble it’s considerably more difficult than the neighbouring Ocean Course and longer with additional trouble spots in terms of water and bunkering. The Ocean Course requires more shape on the ball for a good score. Overall the Ocean Course is a delicious golfing experience, beautifully maintained and a must play for enthusiasts of the game. But wait, there’s more
