Demo Day Goal: Just Hitting or Actually Fitting?

Dec 2, 2015 | 40 Comments

Golfers love demo days, but what do we expect from them? Is the demo day an opportunity to find a new club for our bag, or is it just a chance to blast away balls with someone else’s clubs.

What if you could blast away and at the same time easily figure out your custom specifications?

The Club Report – Adams red Hybrid

May 15, 2015 | 10 Comments

For those just learning about or seeing the Adams red hybrid for the first time today, the first thing I should tell you is that it’s very much an Adams legacy hybrid with a shape that should appeal to better players. Whether you want to call that tour-proven, or just comparatively compact doesn’t really matter. Red is old-school Adams with updated tech.

Red is not blue.

In case I haven’t been clear, Red is a hybrid for guys who love Adams hybrids. [READ MORE]

The Club Report – Miura CB57 Irons

Apr 23, 2015 | 37 Comments

While nearly every aspect of the design begs to be in the hands of a better player, Miura believes that golfers should play whatever clubs bring them the most pleasure. The subtext is that it doesn’t always need to be about shooting the lowest score. There is enjoyment to be found in the game itself. [READ MORE]

The Club Report: Bputters Hammer

Jan 27, 2015 | 178 Comments

Yesterday, we got to know a little more about Bputters as a company, hearing from it’s owner Antonio, and checking out some of the amazingly diverse putters that they build. When you consider the variations with the metal, model, finish, and other options, you get possible combinations somewhere in the hundreds.

Today, we are going to take a closer look at the Bputters Hammer that Antonio customized to my playing specs and preferences. You’ll get to see how Bputters customized the Hammer for me, and at the same time visualize what options you would select for your custom Hammer. [READ MORE]

Company Profile: Bputters

Jan 26, 2015 | 7 Comments

Almost sixteen hours. That’s what Google Maps tells me it will take to get from my house in Sacramento, CA to the Bputters shop in Italy. I’m not opposed to putting in some time and mileage to get the things that I want, but the amount of the Earth that was covered to get one of Bputter’s putters may be a personal record.

While it would have been amazing to go to the shop in person, we all know that in this day and age such a trip is not necessary. Thanks Mr. Internet. We hear the term global economy casually tossed around all of the time, but I’m still amazed at how small the world really is these days. I can live in California, and have a custom putter built to my specs in Italy. I may be showing the length of my tooth, but the modern world still amazes me sometimes.

But let’s get back to that putter shop in Italy, Bputters. [READ MORE]

FIRST LOOK – 2015 PING Ketsch

Jan 13, 2015 | 30 Comments

When we first toured the new PING Cadence TR line-up, one putter was left out of the article. I gave you a pretty good clue as to what was excluded, hinting that the excluded putter had earned the right to a little solo attention. Well let’s drop the subterfuge and get right to the potentially special putter in the Cadence TR stable: The PING Cadence TR Ketsch. [READ MORE]

Unfamiliar with the PING Ketch and why it gets put on a pedestal? Let’s just say that the first incarnation of the Ketsch dominated the competition in the 2014 Most Wanted Mallet Test. 5-footers were basically gimmies for all of our testers. Yep, all of our testers.

Want a Lower Spinning PING G30? Done.

Jan 12, 2015 | 10 Comments

PING has just announced a new member of the G30 family. Meet the G30 LS Tec. Would this have been from any other company in golf we’d probably be hearing some bold statements about more yards…how it’s longer and faster than what was released just a few months ago, and how it’s most definitely the ideal driver for anyone who wants more distance, but alas, that’s not how PING rolls.

Instead, we’re going to have to rely on technical details to help us get to the bottom of why the G30 LS Tec exists. [READ MORE]

First Look: PING Cadence TR Putters

Jan 12, 2015 | 9 Comments

There are days when the quote above sounds like the first five holes of my round. I laughed when I first heard the term “Army Golf” being used to describe alternating shots from the left and the right sides of the hole. It was welcome levity, distracting me from my abysmal ball striking that day.

Off the golf course, that military chant, and it’s ilk, are used to keep the troops in sync as they march. The soldiers rhythm of step quickly matches the rhythm of the sergeant’s call. The seargant’s cadence keeping his troop’s pace consistent and uniform.

Consistency is something that many of us strive for with our golf games. I know that I have told more than one instructor that consistent ball striking is one of my goals. Improved consistency should lead to lower scores, regardless of the ball trajectory. If I know that I’m are always going to hit a vigorous fade, I can aim and play accordingly. [READ MORE]
