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.

Loudmouth Golf Hot Dog Shorts

Loundmouth Golf's Hog Dog shorts - click for more

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.”

Tattoo Golf Switch Blade Divot Tool

Tattoo GolfI doubt they’d let me on an airplane with this thing.  The latest divot tool I have in play is the Tattoo Golf Switch Blade.

Construction

This is not a light piece.  The unit is thick and made of stainless steel.  So if you want a wimpy little thin divot tool in your pocket, perhaps this one isn’t for you.  But if you like a solid, well built product then read on.

When the switch blade is concealed, the tool is about two inches long and about 3/4 wide.  Pressing the button you can see left of the skull in the image below releases the thick and strong blade which is great for fixing all the ball marks you can find, like I do.

Nike Golf 20XI-X Golf Ball

Normally I like to get more holes under my belt with a golf ball before I review it. But by the first round I’ll almost always have reached my primary conclusions anyway. I’m speeding up the review process on the Nike 20XI-X golf ball because I can, and I want to beat everyone else to the scoop.

20XI-X Overview

The 20XI-X is one of two new balls Nike is releasing soon. The 20XI-X or what I call the “X” version, is the longer, distance ball. The 20XI-S (“S” version) is the spin/control version.
