Pukka’s reputation is very high. A few days ago I was telling the buyer at a local golf course about the new hats coming up. This guy started raving about Pukka and told me they were the best in the business. A totally unsolicited rave review.

Pukka has been a great company to work with from start to finish. The design process was very thorough and efficient, with great service and help on getting things to look their best.

How do you get one?

The first few dozen hats will be for giveaways.  I first intend to get these on the craniums of those who have been HOG/TGS pals, members, users, friends etc.  I’ll use the rest of this batch for site contests, giveaways, fantasy golf and any other reason I can to get ’em out in public.

Nike 20XI-S Golf Ball

Nike 20XI-S Golf Ball in play today - Click for more images

I’ve already had one test round under my belt last week with the Nike 20XI-S golf ball, the spinnier version of the new 20XI series.  That round was extremely tough though as the course had just opened following being covered with snow.  The course was playing massively long, no roll at all.  Mud ball central.  Holes which I normally would have 7-9 iron approaches were hybrids, and some I couldn’t even get home.

So today will be my 2nd test round with the 20XI-S and should give me a great idea how this ball performs.  Stay tuned.

20XI-X Golf Ball Review

I already reviewed the 20XI-S’s sister ball about two weeks ago.  To my knowledge, I’m the first to post a review the Nike 20XI-X golf ball so check it out.

Golf ball made from lobster shells

Lobster Golf Ball

We were at the beach.  Everybody had matching towels.  Somebody went, under a dock.  There they saw a rock.  But it wasn’t a rock, it was rock lobster….  golf ball. 

I’ve seen those cruise ships which have driving mats on them and wondered about the environmental impact of hitting balls into the world’s largest water hazard, the ocean.  I didn’t know it, but they make biodegradable golf balls for that.

The researchers at the University of Maine have created a golf ball from lobster shells for this purpose.  Somehow I doubt the cover on this ball is as soft as ProV1 or a Srixon ZStar.

Hard to write a 2000 word review about a pair of golf shorts.  Wait.  If a picture is worth a thousand words, then I can post two pictures of my super cool Loudmouth Golf Hot Dog shorts.  Boom! 2000 words plus…

I get some funny looks and comments by people when I’m sporting my Hot Dogs around the golf course, grocery store or at the Diary of Ann Frank play the other day.

“Nice shorts,” they say.

Me, “you have to have the body for them.”

My uncle, “Where does the battery pack go for those shorts?”

My daughter, “dad you look like you work at Hot Dog On A Stick.”
