As I’ve mentioned a few times before, I don’t typically wear golf gloves. But after wearing a couple of great gloves recently, I’m considering a change, at least for the cold weather of winter golf.
I’ve played a bunch of rounds with a Cutters golf glove. Cutters gloves are crossed over from gloves made for other sports. Cutters is famous for being in play on may NFL and college football receivers’ hands. The same technology which helps those football players hang on to the ball helps a golfer grip solidly.
Cutters gloves employ their trademark “C-TACK™ Material” for an enhanced grip. C-TACK allows you to grip your club with less pressure. If you can be relaxed yet have a firm grip, you can generate more power, control and club head speed.
I was hoping my Utah Ute football team (12-0 baby) would be playing in the Fiesta Bowl. That way I could play some golf in Arizona, say hello to a few friends there and have a good time.
That plan is axed now since the Utes are in the Sugar Bowl on Jan 2 in New Orleans. I guess I’ll be watching my team play from the comfort of my couch.
Seve Ballesteros underwent another surgery today. This time it was to drain fluid from his brain. He’s in stable condition now and has a valve in his brain. No new news on if his condition has worsened and I hope it hasn’t.
A few days ago, struggling General Motors announced that they were terminating their endorsement deal with Tiger Woods. Tiger has had the Buick logo on his bag for about eight years.
Did anyone out there even consider buying a Buick because of Tiger? This is about as disjointed an endorsement deal as having Leave It To Beaver endorse Hooters. Please tell me if anyone out there thinks of Buicks as anything other than cars for grandmas.
What vehicle should Tiger endorse?
Now that Tiger has a free vehicle endorsement slot, perhaps a more appropriate vehicle could be chosen this time? I heard that he owned $650,000 Porsche. Maybe Porsche? Better yet, perhaps there’s a great Volkswagen he could endorse: The Volkswagen GOLF.
It has all come down to the 18th hole and you have a three foot putt to beat your buddy out of $2.00 ($1.00 for the original bet and $1.00 for the press of course). Do you shine? Do you make the glorious putt and collect the cash and associated bragging rights?
Then how about the pressure you might feel if you were KJ Choi today. He sank a putt on the last hole of the Skins Game which was worth $270,000. Total take in this “so-so” silly season event for Choi, $415,000.
