There’s a new golf training aid out there to help you hit your driver on the sweet spot called the Pure Shot Driver. It works sort of like the Tour Striker, with a small sweet spot and surrounding area which deflects shots drastically.

Here is the 3rd and final preview post of the trio of PING Scottsdale putters I’m testing now.  This is the “Shea” putter, a mini mallet which is simple in design like the previously mentioned PING ZB S putter.

Ping has a whole putting arc system called “Fit For Stroke” to match putters with player’s putting arcs, rather than trying to match putting strokes to putters.  The Shea is designed for putters with a “slight arc” in their stroke.

Upright Caddy RASR four wheel push cart improves on its RACR predecessor

Supplemental Review

Back on February 8th, 2009 I posted my review of the Upright Caddy RACR.  The Upright Caddy RACR is a four wheeled golf push cart or trolley (UK) which holds the golf bag in an upright position.  I also sat down and talked with Andy De Carlo about the unit and gave him a face to face honest assessment of the product and what I would change if I could.

Since then Andy has come up with a newer and better model.  The new unit for 2011 is called the RASR and not the RACR.  Honestly I don’t get either name as neither is actually a word.  In this review I’ll discuss what the strengths of the new RASR are, and also highlight the features which have been improved over the RACR.  I’m fairly sure that I’ll get my RACR’s and RASR’s mixed up at some point, so I apologize in advance for that.


Just like the RACR, the RASR holds the golf bag and clubs in a vertical position.  This is MUCH better than any other golf push cart on the market, no matter if they’re two, three, four or 84 wheels.  Club access and bag access are all far better than carts which hold the bag at an angle. Even using a club towel is easier.

The RASR is light.  The frame is made from aluminum tubes, not steel. The RASR’s wheels are a very light plastic.

The cart is easy to push because of the light frame and wheels, and the solid wheelbase.
