Shots from the weekend

This weekend I caught a couple of snaps of some random stuff on the golf course.

Golf Dog

Next to the 1st tee here sits “Golf Dog.”  This guy was patiently sitting there waiting for his owner.  I saw Golf Dog and his owner on the course around the 13th hole too.  The dog just stayed in that same place even when the cart was moving.

Play it as it lies?

This classifies for a submission to the “worst lie ever” contest.  In order to get this shot, my shoes took on some extra weight…

(not) another great Nike ad

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.

HOG lab: New ProV1x and Rife IBF Tour Aussie

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.

new prov1x titleistNew ProV1x

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.

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.
