If you were wondering why PXG might have failed to win its request for a temporary restraining order banning the sale of TaylorMade’s P790 irons, there are some powerful—and sort of funny—words from TaylorMade’s recently released legal filings from last week that not surprisingly make the case the P790 irons do anything but infringe on
TaylorMade’s new TP Red putter line is hoping it gets the same boost to success when its top staff players first began putting with a distinctive red model back in May of 2016. Led by Jason Day’s rise to No. 1 while using a Spider Tour mallet modeled after the coloring on the redback spider
You’re going to see a lot of red, white and blue at the 2017 Presidents Cup at Liberty National Golf Club this week, but Rickie Fowler’s patriotic shoes are going to stand out against it all. The inspiration behind Rickie’s Puma Golf Ignite hi-top and low-top golf shoes? The American flag, of course, but also
You can confirm what you’re doing (or should be doing) with your golf swing using technology such as a TrackMan radar or a BodiTrack pressure mapping system. But you don’t need those devices to make a bunch of useful adjustments from the types of data they gather. Here we’re going to talk about some of
When you scroll down and see Brooke Henderson’s driver swing, you’ll probably think If I tried that, I’d be in the hospital. Knowing the physical limitations of the typical amateur golfer, we won’t disagree. But even if copying her physicality isn’t realistic, her mental approach to driving is worth considering. “I’m not technical at all.
The hardest clubs to design in golf? You’re looking at them. These irons have the classic compact shape that better players prefer, but with technology for forgiveness (multiple materials) and distance (thin-face inserts) that make them playable for the rest of us. This marriage of old and new technology has caught the attention of the
The putter has been perceived as equipment’s technological holdout. For years, golfers were reluctant to embrace innovation in the club they used most. That has changed. Physics give mallets an advantage over blade-style putters in forgiveness, stability and alignment, and tour pros have made them cool. More than half of the top 50 players in
Xander Schauffele wasn’t the most famous player at the Tour Championship, and he wasn’t the biggest. But after shooting 65-68 on the weekend at East Lake, the 5-foot-10 165-pounder took home the tournament win and $3.5 million. Like the guy who ended up winning the FedEx Cup, Schauffele produces lots of power from a small
We’ve all been there: You’re playing with a couple of really big bombers, and you’re trying to keep up. After they blow it way by you on a couple of holes, you start swinging harder to pick up extra yards. But the harder you go after it, the shorter your tee shots go. What gives?
Being a great putter doesn’t mean you’re rolling in bombs all day. Sure, that would be nice, but quality putting is about distance control from long range and precise aim on the short ones. From inside five feet, the biggest problem I see is a careless routine. It drives me crazy when golfers step up
If you’ve yet to play Gil Hanse’s terrific Rio Olympics course in Brazil—we’re looking at you, PGA Tour players—a more-than-reasonable substitute is Hanse’s Black Course at Streamsong, the just-opened third 18 at the famed Central Florida resort. In fact, the Black is a bigger, broader, bolder version of Rio. The course is reshaped from a
Tour Edge’s Exotics CBX line of clubs, which have included low-spin, compact fairway woods, hybrids and driving irons, added two more models to the family today that will appeal to better players and those wanting to play the clubs those players use. The company’s new Exotics CBX Blades and CBX Blade wedges represent classic forged
The Titleist DT TruSoft announced the golf ball market leader’s commitment to low-compression golf ball technology when it was introduced two years ago. Now, it’s been updated with a design that features a new core and cover that continue the challenging twin themes of soft feel and distance. Those attributes in a relatively affordable two-piece,
Golf Datatech’s Golf Product Attitudes and Usage study may be the most definitive demographic portrait of the U.S. golf consumer. And some of the highlights of the latest study show an odd mix of the cautious and impulsive in how golfers buy clubs. The study of 1,000 serious golfers shows that while golfers often are
