I’ve been doing a lot of personal research for my review of the FootJoy Layering System, at locations on and off the golf course. I’ve used the individual garments of the system on their own, as well as combining any two of the three and all three together on and off the course.
Layering System Concept
“Dress in layers” is a quote you always hear as advice when trying to keep warm. The FJ Layering System is a complete set of garments which are used for every possible layer. The three primary layers are the base layer, mid layer and outer layer. I’ll describe each a bit below, as well as my experience with them.
Here’s a first look at the new Callaway RazrX Tour Hybrid. I really like the leading edge of this club. Haven’t hit it yet, but looks like it should dig through bad lies pretty well.

Here’s a first look at the Adams Idea Tech V3 Hybrid. This is a good looking club and the head cover is awesome. I’ll be putting this thing into play for a few rounds and posting a review soon. I have a bunch of images of this nice looking club in the HOG Adams Gallery.

Having worked in the audio world, owning and running a recording studio for 25 years, made this product name funny to me. Whenever bands sucked, vocal parts were out of tune or drums were off in their timing, we’d always say “we’ll fix it in the mix.”
Now that I have that almost completely unrelated comment done, Fix With Mix by Starting Time Golf is a golf accessory which some golf purists my dig, so to speak. It is a portable divot mix carrier which you take with you and use to fill divots. There’s a hook on the side which allows you to attach the unit to your golf bag. The unit will also perfectly fit in a drink holder of an electric golf cart, pull cart or push cart.
Remember on the Hank Haney Project show where he had Rush Limbaugh hitting shots and trying not to hit the plastic behind the ball? That’s one of the applications for the $49 Compression Board.

Full Shots & Chips
The U shaped compression board is a tool to help prevent fat shots, working on striking down on the ball, and aligning properly. There are measurements on the forks to aid in deciding where to place the ball based on level. The levels go from 6-pro.
I found the unit was more helpful for my chipping, since it is so bad. It really helped me get the club on the ball without hitting behind it.
