The new TaylorMade white R11 fairway metalwoods have multiple adjustments, similar to the white R11 driver. In this video Gary Gallager from TaylorMade tells us all about the adjustments like loft, and a sole plate which adjusts the face angle. Gary also shows us the white Burner Superfast 2.0 fairway metal.
“Golf is an athletic sport. Why am I wearing dress shoes?” ~James Lepp, Kikkor Golf
One of the biggest buzzes around this year’s PGA Show was Kikkor (pronounced like “kicker”) Golf Footwear. Everyone was talking about how cool their new shoes are, and how fun their booth was. Founder James Lepp is one cool cat and I really enjoyed talking to him about his new company and checking out his products. Very good stuff.
As my schedule worked out, the Kikkor booth was the last one of the entire PGA show I visited. I wish I would have started the show there first. But if I had, I may have not gone to any other booths.
James has told me he’ll be sending in some samples for me to review when they arrive at the warehouse. I look forward to reviewing them so stay tuned for that.
I was looking at my stats for January and apparently my tireless blogging about golf is paying off. Last month Hooked On Golf Blog topped 2,300,000 hits by over 130,000 unique visitors. That is HUGE for a little old golf blog.
The Golf Space, my other golf site, was no slouch either. TGS is a golf social networking site, free to join. There are currently about 5,600 members. That site had about 985,000 hits by 56,000 unique visitors.
Combine my two golf sites and we are at 3.2 million hits by roughly 200,000 unique visitors for January. I’m well on my way to a free round of golf at Augusta National… right.
YouTube Golf Videos
Another media outlet I is the HOG/TGS YouTube channel. Currently the golf videos there have been viewed over 3.1 million times.
My buddies at Bridgestone Golf were doing some cool stuff at this year’s PGA Show. They had live webcams all over their booth, showing the action, the golf stars stopping by and the live ball fittings etc. But where was all that live digital media being collected and distributed to cyberspace? Check out my quick video below.
