Nike’s ads really get me sometimes. The other day I walked into my local pro shop and plastered everywhere were these posters about Nike having the “new winningest drivers on tour.” That’s cool. I’m sure they meant on a Tuesday during a full moon on a leap year…
I really got a laugh when I looked closer at the picture of Tiger Woods. He doesn’t even have a Nike driver in his hand. He’s got a TITLEIST putter! Haha! Nice one Nike. Keep up the great advertising work.
Finally the snow has melted and I can get back to doing one thing I love to do, GOLF! Now that my golf schedule is up and running (unless it snows again), I’ve got two new pieces of gear I’m currently working on upcoming reviews.
I’ve played a couple of rounds now with the new Titleist ProV1x. My first round was in Orlando in January, when I was pretty rusty. My 2nd was a couple of days ago when I played solid yet still had my clock cleaned by my pals. So far I like the new ProV1x a lot. It isn’t as hard as previous models so my granny 100mph swing can compress it. The ball’s surface is definitely different than previous models. More to come.
Rife IBF Tour Aussie Black Putter
My pals at Rife Putters have been very cool to sponsor this year’s HOG Space Fantasy league with a putter as a prize. I’ve got two Rife putters in my review queue, the first being the very nice IBF Tour Aussie Black. I played my first round with this one a couple of days ago and when I made the right adjustments in my stance and stroke, I started dropping bombs from all over the place. Stay tuned.
This template I’m using today is very cool. I’ve seen one other golf blog using it so far but that is ok because I’ll end up tweaking it a bit anyway. I’m leaning toward this one because I like the look. It has a place for my banners to go in the upper right and the column layout is very clean.
I think I’ve just opened up Pandora’s Box. I’m looking at a whole site redesign. I’m going to run a new design or two as tests and see if things run better, cleaner, faster…
Right now I’m running a very light colored template and I’ve subcategorized the categories so they nicely work in menus up top of the page.
Let me know if you like this template. I’ll run it for a day or two.
