I have hundreds of links to other golf sites and golf blogs in my HOG Master Links section.  I’m doing a little mid year cleaning and getting rid of blogs which have been inactive for six months or more.  If you have a golf blog (or just a blog) I recommend doing the same!


Bridgestone TreoSoft Golf Ball Review

I’ve really loved the performance of many Bridgestone golf balls. The B330 and B330-S as well as the E5 and E6 have provided me with great performance on the course. I have a new ball to add to the list from Bridgestone, the “TreoSoft.”

Technology

The TreoSoft is a two piece ball, meaning it has a large core and an outer cover. The core employs some very cool and innovative technology. Rather than being one density throughout, the core changes in density from center out. This “soft gradational compression” results in more energy transfer at impact and helps moderate swing golfers gain more distance. Despite having what some would call a “hard” cover, I can attest that this core gives the TreoSoft an extremely soft feel.

Natalie Gulbis’ House

I saw Natalie Gulbis’ house today. I knocked on her door to ask her face to face why she hasn’t returned my phone calls. Nobody home.
