Thanks again to my pals at Golf Pride for sending me a set of both the 2010 European and USA Ryder Cup V-Rad putter grips. These grips allow you to show your allegiance to your favorite team in the 2010 Ryder Cup.
I love these grips. They’ve got a great feel, especially for the touch required when putting.
Golf Pride’s description of the V-Rad Grips
With its subtle texture and tackiness, the V-RAD provides a consistent, light grip for ultimate touch around the green, plus a unique semi-pistol shape that fits even the widest range of hand sizes.
I have a problem. Do I put on the grip for the team I want to win: the USA? Or do I put the grip on for the team I think will win: Europe? Maybe I’ll put USA on now, and keep it on if they win….
I tried out a new and interesting golf bag this week called the Eazy Golf Bag. EZGB has some unique design concepts. A circular ring arranges the clubs, while a “V” shaped opening allows for easy access to clubs. To boot, the thing has wheels. The wheels are not really meant for pulling the bag on the course, but for convenience to and from the golf course parking lot.
Does this bag and all of it’s neat ideas break par? Read on.
Access to put the clubs in and take them out is fairly easy with the Eazy Bag. A ring with indentations in the bottom align the handles of the clubs, while they snap into a ring at the top of the bag which arranges the clubs in a nice circular manner around the top of the bag.
Yesterday one of my buddies lost a ball in an area of grass which had a bunch of clippings. We were trying to find his ball by dragging our clubs through the clippings to see if the missing ball was underneath them when his wedge hit my new Dornoch Putter. It put a big ding in the face. Boy am I a sad camper right now.
Just before that happened my other pal was telling the guy who hit my putter with his wedge that my putter was the most beautiful putter he’d ever seen. Boo hoo. I’m on suicide watch now…
I don’t switch putters very often. In fact, the last time I switched was because my old putter was stolen. I’ve switched and I’m very happy with my new putter by Grant Mackay of Dornoch Putters. This thing is amazing.
I missed the DHL guy a couple of times. I didn’t know what he was delivering. On the 3rd day he finally caught me and handed me a golf club box. The problem was that the top 1/3 of the box was gone and there was the handle of a golf club sticking out about 1.5 feet. I looked at the return address and this thing had come clear from Scotland. I asked the DHL guy about the condition of the box and he said “this is the way it was when it got to me.” Surprisingly the putter had survived a trip from Scotland to Utah with half the box gone and/or destroyed.
I tested the putter out on the practice green a few days later and shot some pictures of it, as I do for all my reviews. I wasn’t quite done testing it on the practice green, not confident enough to try it on the course yet. The next day I forgot to put my regular putter back in the bag and found out the Dornoch Putter was in play when I arrived at the 1st green in my Thursday money game. Uh oh. That could be expensive.
As it turned out, it was expensive… for my opponents. I putted so well that day, that the putter hasn’t left my bag since.
It doesn’t suck when you get home to find a box like this waiting for you on your doorstep.
The contents are amazing. Photos and reviews coming soon.
