    The Rules of Golf for use in competitions the sensors record every shot played during a round using GPS and motion sensing technology By simply tapping the sensor to the device on your belt data on course hole location club used and shot distances are recorded which can then be uploaded onto a computer for detailed post round analysis which can also be viewed via a mobile app or web platform It can also measure key stats including fairways in regulation putts per hole average distances hot with each club and provides detailed information on your shot shape and where your misses tend to miss You can also share all this data with friends and fellow golfers even Lee Westwood and Graeme McDowell if you like so that you can compare and contrast your performance against golfers of all standards Packaged up in neat rectangular box I set about screwing the sensors into the holes at the end of each grip of my clubs If you switch around clubs as often as I do this can be a pain as every time you put a new club in you have to switch out the sensor but hey that s my bad I was initially a little concerned that the sensor might protrude too much or upset the balance of the club but both fears proved unfounded like I can tell a 2g difference Having logged onto the website and registered all my club details and settings I charged up the hub that clips onto your belt and was ready to roll The hub has power for 10 hours which is about the same as a GPS Out on the golf course it took some time to get used to tapping the club before each shot which also drew some strange looks from playing partners as it emits a short beep to confirm it has registered the tap but after a missing a few shots you can add them later on the website it soon became second nature and didn t interrupt the flow or speed of the game Tapping when you ve just missed a two footer and have to tap again is painful but it s nothing too arduous Until you get back to your phone or computer all this tapping seems rather pointless but that s where it comes into its own Once you connect it your computer up comes an aerial view of the course you ve just played with a complete overview of where every shot went It quickly became apparent that I was missing as many shots right 30 as I was left 30 leaving just 40 hitting the fairway not quite tour standard It also was easy to see that the majority of my approach shots ended up short and right of the green Which tells me what I already know but almost always fail to act upon hit more club Still it s hard to ignore it when it s in black and

  • REVIEWED: TaylorMade RSi Irons - Golf News | Snow Gear
    Meet the Face Slot Found in the 3 8 irons the clubs we mishit the most the two slots are positioned vertically at the toe and heel just outside the score lines The slots which are cut all the way through the face and filled with an epoxy compound allow the face to flex and retain ball speed for more consistent distance across a wider area of the face Face slot technology has been used in three different head shapes each designed to appeal to the needs of different players The RSi 1 699 is the most forgiving of the three featuring a deep undercut cavity as well as an improved Speed Pocket which protects ball speed launch angle and spin rate especially on shots struck low on the face the RSi 2 829 features cast long and mid irons 3 7 and forged short irons 8 PW to offer a progressive combination of forgiveness and feel and the RSi TP irons 949 are aimed squarely at better players and feature forged carbon steel faces welding to a stainless steel back My own test with the RSi irons using some impact tape across the face revealed just what I d

  • REVIEWED: Callaway Golf Big Bertha Irons - Golf News | Snow Gear
    ways of extending its benefits beyond fairway woods and hybrids and adding it to an iron Enter the new Big Bertha iron a two piece hollow construction design that features a stainless steel face and body and a 360 degree face cup The face cup is welded to the body and wraps around the perimeter to increase the flexibility of the entire face for increased ball speeds even on off centre hits This is achieved by controlling the thickness of the radius between the face and the rest of the body and the thickness of the area immediately behind the face To improve forgiveness still further an internal weight structure called a Standing Wave also used in Callaway s metalwoods lowers the centre of gravity and produces a higher launch angle While there s no question that the Big Bertha irons have a definite game improvement look including a noticeable amount of offset in the hosel the sole widths are progressive so that although the long irons have a wide almost utility iron like sole the shorter irons have a significantly thinner sole although I m not going to suggest that they are in any way precision tools that would suit the eye of a better player but then again there are plenty of irons out there for good players By marrying the Face Cup design with a new Variable Face Thickness pattern Callaway has increased ball speed from the centre of the face by 3mph and the rest of the face on average is 2 5mph faster which makes the BB irons up to two clubs longer than Callaway s other previous distance orientated iron the Razr X HL for certain golfers From my own testing I would definitely say that they were at least one club longer throughout

    the fans enthusiasm transforming it into a coliseum type atmosphere creating one of the most exciting settings in sport This year saw attendance records smashed with over 200 000 screaming supporters showing up to watch the action on Saturday a single day record for the event The total for the week was 618 365 Think about that for a moment those figures are mind bogglingly insane and simply brilliant for the game of golf The only negative for me was the final result Absolutely no disrespect whatsoever to Hideki Matsuyama he s a great guy and a huge talent but Rickie Fowler and this tournament are pretty much the perfect fit wouldn t you agree Colourful and charismatic go hand in hand for both in equal abundance Fowler will be back next year to hopefully avenge defeat and he won t be lacking in love from the fans It s awesome playing in front of big crowds said Fowler A lot of people decide to stay by 16 and 17 and it s a pretty fun home stretch 15 to 18 So many of you will have watched this tournament on TV but how about going to tackle it for yourself TPC Scottsdale offers two world class championship courses The Stadium Course the signature design and home to the Phoenix Open offers unparalleled views of the beautiful McDowell mountain range The Champions Course also provides a stern test and while it may lack the reputation of its more heralded big brother it certainly rivals it in terms of beauty and playability and is a great desert golf experience While the PGA Tour only uses the TPC of Scottsdale for one week a year the Stadium course maintains top notch playing conditions throughout with around 30 tour pros calling the place home Kevin Stadler who captured the Phoenix Open in 2014 Ricky Barnes Robert Garrigus Martin Laird Troy Merritt and Parker McLachlin are just a few of the names attached there The added beauty of the Stadium course is its playability The superb condition elite practice facilities and the warm winter bring plenty of keen golfers out to the desert Trouble comes in the form of 72 bunkers strategically placed in the fairways and around the greens Desert vegetation such as the saguaro cacti always makes for an interesting test and water comes into play on six of the holes including three of the last four as Fowler will attest to The closing stretch is what really makes this course great value for golfers and spectators alike It s a thrilling finish even without a few hundred thousand watching your every move After the success and attendance figures we ve just witnessed 2017 will be hard to beat but who s to say it won t be louder than the last time In the meantime go and create your own little piece of golfing magic at arguably the most talked about hole in the game even if it s only in

  • Colin Montgomerie - Golf News
    now The best hotel I ve ever stayed at was The Mandarin Oriental in Hong Kong The luxury hotels in Asia are hard to beat The Intercontinental in Hong Kong overlooking the waters there is also very special I prefer city hotels to beach resorts but if I had to choose one by the sea is would be Sandy Lane in Barbados And of course the Belle Mare Plage in Mauritius isn t all that bad either My favourite restaurant on holiday is anywhere that serves a decent steak It doesn t matter where I am in the wolrd but as long as I can get a nice tender steak I m happy My favourite city in the world is Paris I ve been there many many times I think architecturally it s a stunning city but I love it for everything really the food the culture the people it s a magical place My worst holiday experience was when I got ill while on a family holiday a few years ago I went down with a really bad fever I mean seriously ill I had to come home and that was that as far as the holiday was concerned I can cope with flight delays and all that but when you get ill all you want to do is come home to your own bed For my next golf holiday I d like to go over to the States and play Seminole in Florida Pine Valley in New Jersey Augusta National in Georgia and Cypress Point in California Of course I don t ever take my clubs on a holiday but once my playing career is over I d love to take a few people over to play those courses My top travel tip would be never to drink
