Ecco – From Course to Clubhouse

Feb 27th
2014

Shared from Trendy Golf Magazine

Ecco was established in 1963 by Karl Toosbuy in the small town of Bredebro in southern Denmark. The idea was to produce shoes that combined innovative technology, scandinavian design and traditional craftsmanship with an understanding of the human foot and how it works.

A lot of time and effort is invested into researching the foot and producing a shoe that is as comfortable as possible, without compromising style. This dedication to shoes is the reason why Ecco has grown in popularity over the last few years and has established themselves as a go-to source for shoes, both for on and off course wear.

Consisting of four product categories – Street, Biom, Hybrid and Cleated – the selection of shoes is vast and is sure to have something for everyones individual style and tastes.  But wait, there’s more…

Golf Books #130 (The Keys to the Effortless Golf Swing)

Feb 25th
2014

If you love golf, but have never played to your potential, here is a book you will quickly come to treasure.

The biggest paradox in golf is that the harder you try to “hit” the ball, the worse you do so. In The Keys to the Effortless Golf Swing, Michael McTeigue offers a simple system of sequential body movements that produces a true swinging motion with every club in the bag. The result is increased distance and greater accuracy for all sizes, shapes, and ages of golfers for a minimum of investment in learning time.

The clarity and simplicity of McTeigue’s frill-free approach to the golf swing leads the reader to a new experience of power and effortlessness. He truly shows “how to build a swing you can trust and keep for life.” But wait, there’s more…

Shared from Trendy Golf Magazine

Lyle & Scott is a brand rich in tradition and history founded in 1874 in the small Scottish town of Hawick by William Lyle and Walter Scott. The brand was built on premium quality products and strong attention to detail, two principles that have stood the test of time for 140 years now.

Under new management in the early 20th Century, Lyle & Scott moved to the forefront of the apparel and fashion industry moving into the production of high quality woollen knitwear. Collaborations in the second half of the 20th Century with names such as Chanel, Christian Dior, Yves Saint Laurent and Michael Kors further positioned them as a globally recognised fashion brand.

Each garment is expertly crafted with the utmost care and attention to detail, something you would come to expect from a brand that has been around for well over a century.

Masters 2014: Eisenhower Tree removed at Augusta National

Augusta National has been forced to adapt its 17th hole ahead of this year’s Masters after an iconic tree had to be removed because of storm damage. The Eisenhower Tree sat to the left of the 17th fairway and was an obstacle for players positioning their tee shot.

“The loss of the Eisenhower Tree is difficult news to accept,” said Billy Payne, chairman of Augusta National.

He revealed the rest of the course suffered no damage, with the 78th Masters due to start on 10 April.

The Eisenhower Tree – thought to be more than 100 years old – was badly damaged during an ice storm last week and removed after Augusta National consulted arborists.

Jack Nicklaus, a six-time Masters winner, said: “The Eisenhower Tree is such an iconic fixture and symbol of tradition at Augusta National. It was such an integral part of the game and one that will be sorely missed.” But wait, there’s more…
