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.

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.
I have started dumping photos into the 2009 PGA Show Gallery. Here’s a shot of the new Titleist 909 D3 driver. Many more to come but for now I’m back to the floor.

The creativity and ingenuity of golf inventors, entrepreneurs and small companies never ceases to amaze me. Case in point today, the Argon Laser Putter.
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.
This Puma Swing GTX golf shoe brings the best of old school design and modern technology into a super hip looking package.
This Swing GTX was a real eye catcher for me the first time I saw it. There’s a retro style and simple elegance to these golf shoes. How Puma can take a white shoe with a couple of green (or black depending on the model) lines and make it look so cool is beyond me. That’s why I’m a golf blogger and not a shoe designer I suppose.
The Swing GTX is super comfortable. With the soft leather in the upper I feel like I’m wearing my cozy slippers rather than a pair of performance golf shoes.
There was no break-in period required before enjoying that comfort level either. I put ’em on and they felt great right out of the box.
