Never more happy to have gotten the shaft, KBS Tour 90 shafts to be exact

Written by: Tony Korologos | Friday, January 13th, 2012
Categories: Golf ClubsGolf EquipmentGolf GearReviews

KBS ShaftsI got the shaft, and I’m quite happy about it.  Specifically new shafts for my irons from KBS Shafts.  The shaft of choice for my “dual chicken wing granny over the top inside out massive weight shift face open overly steep” golf swing was the KBS Tour 90 version.

Why the KBS Tour 90 Shaft?

A look at my aforementioned swing description might give one clue as to the reason I went with the Tour 90’s.  Specifically there are two qualities in the KBS Tour 90’s which made them a good choice for my swing and shot type.  First, I’m not a bomber.   My swing speed, though clocked at 105MPH a couple of years ago, has gone down with age and shoulder injuries to around 90MPH.  The Tour 90 is well suited for moderate swing speeds.

The 2nd quality which makes the 90’s a match for my swing, is my shot trajectory.  I’m a low ball hitter.  The Tour 90 is well suited for players with a low trajectory.

Review: Coyote Springs Golf Club – Coyote Springs, Nevada

Written by: Tony Korologos | Thursday, January 12th, 2012

I had the pleasure of playing Coyote Springs Golf Club (formerly The Chase) in mid 2011. Many thanks to the staff there, especially assistant pro Rob Sanders and pro Todd Michaelsen.  Since my first trip to Coyote Springs I’ve been salivating at the chance to get back down there and test my game out a 2nd time.  I had the chance to to play a 2nd round there around July, but unfortunately I had to cut a HOG World Tour trip short due to a family emergency.  The emergency ended up okay, no worries, except for the heartbreak of missing out on an opportunity to play this fantastic track again.

Location Location Location?

Coyote Springs is located in the Nevada desert.  If you are a golfer looking to get away from it all, this would be the place.  The course is about an hour drive northeast of Las Vegas and about a 45 minute drive southwest of Mesquite.  The road in to the course is very hilly and full of curves.  Make sure you’re awake and sober for that one.

The area the course is situated is big.  BIG.  I can’t think of any other word to describe it.  The sky is big, the landscape is big and the number of miles you can see is big.  The views from any vantage point on the course reach for miles, with mountains framing the landscape.  The contrast of the green grass and blue water features with the gray desert landscape is striking.

War on slow play

Written by: Tony Korologos | Thursday, January 12th, 2012
Categories: GolfHackersPGA TourPro Golf

This first weekend of golf on the PGA Tour has already started some interesting commentary from the TV announcers, PGA Tour players and golf journalists on slow play.  Slow play is the enemy without a doubt.  The comments at the Hyundai Tournament of Champions regarding Johnathan Byrd’s slow play (also known as “deliberate”) were well noted. I then I saw a few great slow play related tweets from world #1 Luke Donald’s twitter:

Sounds like slow play is already an issue the 1st week of the PGA Tour season and it’s 2somes. Sort it out please…

It’s not that hard, be ready when it’s your turn. Slow play is killing our sport

Can’t really blame the officials, not enough of them to govern. Responsibility lies with the players and their caddies

If u r second to putt, why not read your putt while the player 1 is reading his. 30 secs saved there = 35 mins saved for the round

It was very refreshing to read those rants from Luke.  Bravo.  Keep at it.

Yesterday I read a piece by Cam Cole in the sports section of National Post, “PGA’s slow paces is killing golf.”  Check it out.  Some great points and great quotes are in there.

2.5 Hour Round

In the Monday final round at the Hyundai Tournament of Champions this past week, David Toms was first out of the gate.  By himself he played 18 holes in 2.5 hours.  It can be done.

Not Just The PGA Tour

One reason aside from the expense that golf is not a reasonable endeavor for many amateurs is the fact that it takes so long, especially in a down economy when those who are working are working more hours than ever.  If amateurs could get in nine holes in 1.5 hours or 18 in 3 hours, the sport would have a lot more participation.

Speed it up people!
