I’ve spent some time now with two of True Linkswear’s 2012 models, the Tours and the Stealths.  The short version is that they took an already great shoe line-up and made it even better.  Click continue for the long version.

Review: Hirzl Gloves

Hirzl Trust Control, Trust Feel, Soffft Flex

I first came across Hirzl gloves back in January at the PGA Merchandise Show.  Hirzl claims that the gloves maintain or even improve their grip when wet and demonstrated this by spraying the glove down with water and then having you hit a few iron shots.  The gloves seemed to work and I was impressed.  So of course I jumped at the chance to conduct a longer-term review.  What did I think?  Click on continue to find out.

Review: Spotless Swing Towel

Spotless Swing Towel

The Spotless Swing Towel is a new 3-in-1 towel that provides an area to clean your hands/grips, an area to clean your clubs, and then a built-in “microbrush” fabric that keeps your grooves nice and clean on the course.

Honestly, I’ve always been a $2 towel from Walmart kind of guy, but the Spotless Swing Towel generated a surprising amount of buzz at the PGA Merchandise show.  So does it live up to the hype?  Read on to find out.

TRUE Linkswear Stealths

The week prior to my trip to Ballyneal, I received a nice present in the mailbox from the folks at TRUE Linkswear: a pair of the new black TRUE Stealths.

After walking in them for 5 rounds at Ballyneal, and several more since getting home, I’ve come to the conclusion that TRUE did what I thought was impossible: improve on the already amazing TRUE Tours.

Review: GolfBuddy World GPS

GolfBuddy World GPS

I had a chance to spend a few weeks with the GolfBuddy World GPS unit and thought I would share my thoughts.

The GolfBuddy World is a GPS unit similar to the SkyCaddie SGX that I personally own.  I think it’s safe to say that SkyCaddie has set the standard by which other GPS units are judged.  So how does the GolfBuddy World stack up?  Pretty darn well.

Book Review: Play Your Best Golf Now

play your best golf now by pia nilsson and lynn marriott

Ever heard the saying that golf is “10% physical and 90% mental”?  I don’t know if that’s completely accurate or not, but clearly, what goes on in your head during a round of golf can have as much to do with your score as anything happening in your swing.

Play Your Best Golf Now is a new book from Pia Nilsson and Lynn Marriott that’s focused on helping you play to your potential by improving your mental golf game.

Kikkor Tenny in Clayburn

I got an e-mail from James Lepp, the founder of Kikkor Golf, yesterday and I realized that I was way behind in writing this review.  So I finally got my act together and wrote-up my thoughts on the Kikkor Tenny (more on the e-mail at the end of this review).

Review: Transitions SOLFX Lenses

Callaway Mag 101 sunglasses with Neox Transitions SOLFX lenses

In honor of this past week’s Transitions Championship, I thought I would post my review of the Transitions SOLFX lenses.  If you’re not familiar with Transitions from all the commercials over the weekend, they’re a photochromic lens.  This means that the lenses change tint based on the amount of UV light they’re exposed to.  You can go from out in the sun to indoors or the shade without having to take off your sunglasses (or vice-versa).

TRUE Linskwear TRUE Tours Golf Shoe

I’ve talked about the TRUE Linkswear TRUE Tours shoes several times on this site.  Back in September I previewed their debut shoe line-up.  And at last month’s PGA Show, I gave everybody an update on their upcoming styles.  But now, after having played several rounds and walked numerous miles in my pair of TRUE Tours, I’m finally ready to post my review.

Review: Tifosi Optics Scatto FC

Tifosi Scatto FC

Are you looking for a pair of sunglasses that have high end performance but don’t have the high end price tag?  Then you need to take a hard look at Tifosi Optics.

I met with Tifosi at the PGA Show last month and walked away very impressed with their offerings and holding a pair of their Scatto FC sunglasses to review.  The bottom line is that they’re a really solid piece of eyewear.  And when you consider that the list price is $39.95, they might just be the best dollar for dollar value in the market today.
