There are as many golf blogs out there now as there are empty coors cans in a certain suspended long driving PGA Tour player’s RV.

But Barry Rhodes golf blog will be doing something different, and likely more useful for the average golfer.  Barry’s blog is focused helping golfers understand the rules of golf.  Check it out.


2009 PGA Show – EEZ-READ

EEZ-READ’s Robin Austin just kills me. First of all, I doubt I’ve met a cooler cat. I love his vibe and his passion for golf and his products. The thing that really gets me, is that he’s got the “Austin Powers” vibe with his accent, his shades and even his looks. Combine that with the fact that “Austin” is his name and just sends me over the edge.

EEZ-READ 2009 Fantasy Golf Sponsor!

Robin and I have been pals now for a couple of years. For the 2nd year EEZ-READ will be a sponsor for the HOG Space Fantasy Golf League! Thanks Robin!

I’m packing up my stuff, checking out of my room shortly. The Orlando Golf Blogger and I will be teeing it up at a Disney course in 2 hours. Then I fly home.

It has been a great time here at the PGA Show in Orlando. But I am tired and ready to go home to the frozen tundra.

Argon Laser Putter

argon laser putterThe creativity and ingenuity of golf inventors, entrepreneurs and small companies never ceases to amaze me. Case in point today, the Argon Laser Putter.

Concept

I’ve reviewed laser putters before. The concept is simple. A laser beam emitted from the putter face allows the player to check alignment and even “see” a real line to the target, rather than having to imagine one. Being off line by a tiny amount makes putts go off line more and more the farther away you are from the target.

Three Lasers Are Better Than One

Previous laser putters I’ve reviewed had one laser in the center of the club face. The laser was good for checking alignment, but without addressing the ball. Once the ball was positioned in front of the club face it blocked the laser.

With the Argon 3-laser setup this is not a problem. There are two lasers at ground level. One laser is on the heel and one is on the toe of the putter face. The other laser is in the middle of the tall club face. The two ground level beams are not blocked when having a ball positioned at address. The player can see a set of laser rails which give a great visual of the width of the line. The top laser hits the top of the ball.
