TOUR NEWS

Part of the deal when you’re a global superstar and brand ambassador is that you need to do requisite Q&As with reporters for the products you represent.

Understood in that agreement is that there’s a certain game that is played between reporter and athlete in which the reporter asks about the product in order to get to ask a real, pertinent question.

Brooks Koepka doesn’t play that game.

NEVR LOOZ

The basic design of the golf bag hasn’t been improved in decades. 14 clubs are shoved into a handful of slots and left to clank and rattle against one another up and down the fairway.

Finally, the Nevr Looz golf bag has changed the status quo. Patented club clips hold and keep your clubs organized from the first tee to the 18th green without so much as a sound coming from them.

INSTRUCTION

There’s only one downfall to playing golf on a beautiful, sunny day: the pesky shadow that’s distracting you from the task at hand.

Mental game expert and author of the best-selling book Zen Golf Dr. Joe Parent suggests that you stop trying to ignore your shadow and embrace the teaching aid it can be before locking in on your target.

SHIP STICKS

There’s enough stress associated with travel that you shouldn’t have to worry about packing up your golf clubs and hauling them through an airport. Luckily, Ship Sticks has figured out the system for you.

Simply schedule a pick-up for your bag and have it hand-delivered to the course you’re going to play. All you need to do is show up, and you’re ready to go.

Enjoy your golf trip sooner without the stress of waiting at the baggage claim for a set of clubs that were left on the tarmac.

TOUR NEWS

Phil Mickelson is one calculating S.O.B. Sure, no one bought his “see a part of the world I’ve never seen before” schtick before heading over to the Saudi International, but who knew there was more at the other end of the rainbow than an appearance fee?

Mickelson’s Wednesday pro-am group was made up of three executives from the upstart global tour initiative that has been in the news for the last week. Coincidence? Not with Phil.

Here’s what Phil had to say about his all-too-convenient pro-am pairing.

INSTRUCTION

It may seem counterintuitive given the size of the clubhead, but a hybrid is probably the best club you can hit when playing a shot from a fairway bunker.

Top-100 instructors Jim Hardy and Chris O’Connell explain the design characteristics of the club and the required technique to make getting out of fairway bunkers a breeze.

RULES

Even a year later, the adjusted drop procedure from a lateral penalty area is routinely botched on golf courses around the world.

SwingU instructor Ryan Rustand explains the four ways the method has been adjusted, the reasoning behind it and the proper way to take relief so that you’re not hit with an additional penalty.
