Callaway X-Series N415

Hey everyone – thanks for stopping by.  We’ve got a new release to share with you today on the USGA and R&A conforming list from Callaway.  This looks like a budget driver model to us, for the average golfer, and I would expect a lower pricetag, possibly in the $200-$250 range if this stick ever makes it to market.  This driver is lacking much of the bells and whistles of most premium drivers these days, like adjustable lofts, weights, sliders and whatnot, so I’m thinking this price is a safe bet.  Callaway tested both a men’s and women’s model in 9.5 for men and 10.5 for both men and women.

Fast Crown Bridgestone

Bridgestone Golf recently trademarked the term “FAST Crown” in the USA on August 12th – meaning possibly a new driver is coming the the American market sporting this bit of lingo. Speed crown was already taken by Cleveland, so this is surely the closest they could get this late into the game when it comes to shaping the driver head in order to reduce drag and increase speed. We’ll keep an eye out on this one for you guys! I’d expect to see this pop on the USGA conforming list sometime in the fall.

Stay tuned!

Hey everyone, thanks for stopping by.  The USGA recently released photos of a new driver likely set for the Japanese market (even though we’d like to see models out here) – the J715 line.  Two new drivers popped up on the list – the B3 & B5. They both feature an adjustable hosel, two weight ports, and a pretty cool paintjob.  Thanks to http://www.tourspecgolf.com for the photo.

Hey everyone, thanks for stopping by.  We’ve got a few new sticks to show you from the USGA conforming list that look very interesting.  Bridgestone has two new drivers, Mizuno one, we’ve got another pic of the Titleist 915 and Callaway’s v-Series driver.

Callaway V-Series

This driver is the next generation of the Big Bertha re-vamp by Callaway. They included a curious yet playful picture of Isaac Newton saying “you can’t argue with physics”. This driver has the OptiFit hosel, a speed channel around the crown, and some “velocity” like letters around the “v-series” logo. Three models were approved by the USGA – the 9.5,10.5 and 13.5, which makes us this that this line is likely geared towards the average golfer, but time will tell.  We’ll keep you up to date as more information becomes available.

SeaStar Paspalum

Hawaiian Turfgrass recently licensed SeaStar Paspalum, a grass suited for the Hawaiian climate. The grass was developed by the world’s leading seashore paspalum turfgrass breeder, Dr. Paul Raymer, at the University of Georgia. SeaStar can be used for golf courses wall-to-wall.

“Hawaii is one of the most ideal environments that exists for seashore paspalum grasses. It’s the temperature, the humidity, the soil. It’s just happy there,” Raymer stated. “SeaStar, in terms of pure quality, color, density and texture, is better across the board than any other seashore paspalum grass on the market today.”

SeaStar will be available as sod, as well, can be installed by Hawaiian Turfgrass. The grass makes for superior sports fields and beautiful home laws. For golf, SeaStar offers the rare and uique opportunity to use one grass on every playing surface.

“It is truly a grass for golf course applications that can go wall-to-wall. It was developed with wall-to-wall in mind, from roughs and fairways, to tees and greens. It performs very well at all of those wide ranges of mowing heights,” Raymer said.

SeaStar Paspalum

Other benefits of SeaStar include: a high level of salt tolerance, tested and confirmed short-term drought tolerance, and the ability to be mowed with a reel or rotary mower.

Hawaiian Turfgrass is currently taking reservations for SeaStar golf projects for 2016.

OGIO Silencer

Good day, thanks for stopping by. Earlier this month, OGIO introduced the Silencer Stand Bag, designing for golfers on the move. The Silencer is meant for walking golfers, combining comfort and quietness.

The bag’s protective top separates up to 14 club heads and the bottom uses flex grab teeth to keep clubs in place. By reducing the loud clanking sound and minimizing club dings, the Silencer can add years of life to clubs. The Silencer is ultra light, durable, and features an equalizing shoulder strap that balances weight across the back.

The Silencer also features seven pockets including an insulated one for a water bottle, a fleece-lined one for valuables (i.e. cell  phone) and a pen pocket. The OGOP Silencer Stand Bag retails for $234.99 and is available through OGIO.
