Twist Tee

I’ve been using some cool tees for my last few rounds called Twist Tee. These tees come with a an adjustable section which allows for customizing the height of the ball simply by twisting the top section.

Some other features include cool colors, stable ball cup (especially for windy conditions) and high strength.

Sizes

The Twist Tee comes in two sizes.  The longer size is pictured here and is adjustable from 2 7/8 inches to 3 5/8 inches.  The shorter size tees it up from 2 1/4 inches to 2 5/8 inches.

Returned from TaylorMade Performance Lab

I have a bunch of pictures, data, video and numbers to crunch following my first visit to the local TaylorMade Performance Lab here at South Mountain Golf Club today.  The session was amazing and my host Mike Lewis was very good at is cool gig.

The wildest part of the session was dawning the reflector suit with 26 sensors, which then feeds data to the system and show you every possible number and 3D rendering of your swing.

The 26 sensors on my body and club translate to the 3D image of me on the screen in the background. VERY COOL. Click for more images.

The system did in fact confirm that I have a granny move at the top, but my impact positions and sides pin numbers are some of many great specs which show I can hit the ball straight.

It will certainly take a bit to crunch everything into an official review, but I wanted to give a shout out to Mike and the local TMPL for hosting me.  It was an awesome experience.


Doing my first ever TaylorMade Performance Lab session tomorrow

TaylorMade Performance Lab TMPLTomorrow I’m going to be doing my first TaylorMade Performance Lab session.  A new “TMPL” has opened here in Utah at South Mountain Golf Course.  These labs are very high tech and they do all sorts of cool swing analysis and club fitting.

My soon to be golf doc Mike Lewis will be diagnosing the “granny over the top across the line dual chicken wing lateral sway epileptic seizure early release inside out club face open” swing.   Can’t wait to see that swing in 3D.  It might break their system.

Stay tuned for a full report and photos, especially of the granny swing.


TaylorMade FAS-TEK System

FAS-TEK system by TaylorMade - click to see more

Woa it has been at least a year or two since I’ve been to the TaylorMade web site.  It was so bad with all the Adobe Flash animations and things flying around, that I couldn’t even find a product without waiting for things to fly around and load for 20 minutes.  They’ve fixed that, and now the site loads fast! The site is actually nice to look at and is easily navigated now!  Big improvement.

It isn’t perfect though.  I’m not able to find much regarding the “FAS-TEK” accessory system.  In fact searching for that specific term results in a blank page.

FAS-TEK

The FAS-TEK system is a cool option on golf bags which puts a little locking mechanism on the bag which an accessory can attach to.  The accessories can vary from a sunglasses case, cell phone case, GPS/laser rangefinder case, cigar case etc.

Pictured right is a case which can be used to hold various items, but likely meant primarily for a larger laser.  Click the image to see more.

FAS-TEK case suggestions

Despite having so many cool cases, here are a few I’d suggest below.  Of course, should TaylorMade use any of these ideas, I want a full commission…

Cool golf bunker rakes with rounded handle

New this year at one of my three home courses are some bunker rakes with rounded handles.  See image below:

Rounded handle good for many reasons - click to enlarge

I can think of several ways this handle is better for golfers or the course:

1. The handle doesn’t leave six foot long imprint in the sand, keeps bunker more pure
2. The handle is easier to grab when accessing the rake
3. The handle won’t stop a golf ball from rolling.  Ball will roll under it.
