At the end of the 2016 golf season here in northern Utah I received the Tour Edge Exotics CB Pro U Hybrid Limited Edition for a review.  I posted a quick first look article right when it came in.

Because of my golfer’s elbow I couldn’t hit it until I changed the grip.  By the time I got the grip changed I had thrown out my back very badly and it took four weeks for me to recover.  By then the courses were closed and winter had come.  So I’ve been staring at this beautiful club all winter and spring.  The snow finally melted and my back is cooperating. It was hard to even consider hitting this beauty.  I thought it might be better to just put it on the wall as a show piece.  But I’ve now put it into play.

I’ve got a few rounds in the books with this hybrid and I think it is fantastic.  My full review of the CB Pro U Hybrid will be coming soon.  If it comes close to my Tour Edge Exotics XCG7 3-wood, the 2014 HOG Product of the Year, I’ll be thrilled.

Golf gearhead drool warning. Have a bib ready for this one. I just got in some fantastic looking wedges from Harry Taylor Golf.

Previously, Harry Taylor was a club designer at TaylorMade, Mizuno, and Founders Club. He’s now making his own wedges and as you can see by the images I’ve shot, they look sweet.

I’ve got a full set of these wedges to test: 52-56-60. These are going straight in the bag and I will start hitting them next week, weather permitting. As I do with all of my golf club reviews, I’ll be spending a lot of time playing these on the course before I post my detailed review. Until then, enjoy these pics and check out the Harry Taylor Golf website.

HOG Exclusive Photo: New PXG Drone Putter Version 2.123

On Twitter today My Golf Spy showed the new PXG (Parsons Xtreme Golf) putter, the “Drone.”  Funny that PXG used the word Drone for the name. Obviously drones are the hottest thing out there so PXG’s search engine optimization team suggested the name.  Voila.  More web views.

Anyway, not trying to scoop My Golf Spy, but Hooked on Golf Blog has some embedded sources within most golf companies who provide some fantastic images and information regarding new products, patents, and new product development.  One of my inside sources at PXG provided the image below on condition of anonymity.   Below is the next revision of the Drone putter, the PXG Drone 2.123. According to my source the “123” in the name represents the number of “screw weights that don’t seem to do anything.”

This product is still in development and yet to be announced or released. My source tells me they’re still working on the placement of some of the “screw weights that don’t seem to do anything.” If/when I get any more images or revisions to this putter I’ll share with loyal HOG readers.


The Footwedge is REAL

My short game is so bad I’ll try anything (except practice of course). I think I may have finally found my gamer wedge, my go-to club. Say hello to the FootWedge!

You thought the FootWedge was just an imaginary club, didn’t you? Or perhaps you thought it was the situation where the cheater in your group is under a tree with an impossible lie and when nobody’s looking he kicks it out to a perfect position?

This is the real deal people. Not only is this a fine looking wedge, it doubles as a bottle opener.

If only there was a cigar cutter and roach clip in there too somewhere.  There might be.  I’m still looking.

I’ve just gotten this club in and will be testing it out on a real-deal golf course. I’ve already tested the bottle opener. The club did a fantastic job with a frosty Corona.

Stay tuned for my full review soon.

If you can’t wait to get one of these you can pick one up at footwedgepro.com. Yes, this is the “pro” model.

Today’s episode of “strange golf clubs you find in your dad’s basement” features the “Transparent Olympic Mallet Putter.”  This unique putter features a high MOI (moment of inertia), olympic rings which provide a visual aid to the golfer for alignment, and a custom protective cover.
