f you know many super golf stars, you must know PGA. Because most famous golfers comeing out from PGA. It is the organizer of the main professional golf tours played primarily by men in the United States and North America. It organizes most of the events on the flagship annual series of tournaments also known as the PGA Tour.
Golfers who can take apart in PGA is already very great. But PGA is really not an easy compleition to through the trials. PGA National is known for being one of the most difficult golf courses, especially for a non-major, that PGA Tour players face each season. The proof is that the field failed to get to the double digits under par, needing only 8 under to get into a playoff.
Patience and confidence are very essential when you are invloved in tough golf course. No matter how difficult it is, you need to keep patient and composure, Just take a deep breath and do your best to deal with all the difficulties.
Most of golfers can avoid difficult golf courses if they choose, but sometimes you find yourself playing a TaylorMade R1 Driver with track that is extremely difficult, especially for whatever your skill level may be. The following small tips may assit you next time get sucked in a tough golf course.
Firstly, try your best to play to your strengths. Difficult courses can trick you into attempting shots that aren’t in your wheelhouse. For example, if driving accuracy isn’t your thing, make sure you tee off with a TaylorMade SLDR Fairway Wood that increases your chances to get the ball in play on a tight driving hole.
Secondly, you should know that par or bogey is a good score. Third-round leader Rory McIlroy had four bogeys and a double in an 11-hole stretch Sunday and still found his way into the playoff. How important is par or bogey on a tough course? If McIlroy turns that double bogey into a bogey, or one of those bogeys into a par, in theory, he wins the golf tournament.
Thirdly, you must learn to identify the trouble like hazards, out of bounds to determine a safe target, and then do your best to pretend the trouble isn’t there. Fear can cause anxiety and tension in the swing, leading to shots that go offline. Overcoming the fear of your ball winding up in trouble is the first step toward avoiding trouble when playing TaylorMade SpeedBlade Irons in the first place.
The final thing you need to do is to build your confidence, because it is one way to overcome fear, but confidence takes time and practice to develop. If you don’t have the time to practice and develop more confidence in your game, and you’re worried about the scores you shoot, my best advice is to avoid difficult golf courses until you are ready.
Anyway, it is easier saying than done! What you need to do is to try your best! Nothing would be difficult if you are brave and have enough confidence.
ST ANDREWS, Scotland — Peter Dawson is to retire next year as chief executive of The R&A after 16 years with the governing body in charge of the Rules of Golf and organizing the Open Championship.
The R&A says Tuesday that Dawson will step down in September 2015. He will also be also leaving his role as secretary of Royal and Ancient Golf Club, the 2,400-member club whose headquarters overlook the Old Course at St. Andrews.
In a statement, the R&A hailed the “continuing commercial success” of the Open Championship under Dawson since he joined the organization in 1999. He was also a key figure in securing golf’s return to the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro in 2016.
The R&A says Dawson’s successor is expected to be made “in sufficient time to allow for an appropriate handover period in 2015.”
By the way, the TaylorMade JetSpeed Fairway Wood is a stealthy, low-profile bomber that launches high, flies straight, and lands soft from just about every lie on the course.

The low-profile head and shallow face aid in easy launch, allowing golfers to get the ball airborne with ease for optimal flight and distance. Speed Pocket design, JetSteel technology, Matrix Velox T shaft, and strategic CG placement all combine to make the JetSpeed the ultimate in playability and distance.
What and how many clubs are now in your golf bag? Many people would check the golf bag and found they really need new ones for replacement. For me, I recently want to buy some new golf clubs to replace my old ones. And I am a little hesitating on whether to buy them in local brand store or online.
As we all know, a golfer typically transports best price golf clubs in a golf bag. Modern golf bags are made of nylon, canvas and/or leather, with plastic or metal reinforcement and framing, but historically bags have been made from other materials, including elephant’s penis. Golf bags have several pockets designed for carrying various equipment and supplies required over the course of a round of golf.
Virtually all bags are sectioned off with rigid supports at the top opening, both for rigidity and to separate clubs of various types for easier selection. More expensive bags have sleeves or pockets within the main compartment for each individual club, allowing for the desired TaylorMade SLDR Driver to be more easily removed from the bag and then returned without interference from the grips of the other clubs or internal hardware of the bag.
Cart bags are generally designed to be harnessed to a two-wheeled pull cart or a motorized golf cart during play of a round. They often have only a rudimentary carry strap or handle for loading and transporting the bag, and no stand legs, but may feature extra storage or more durable construction, as weight of the loaded bag is a lesser concern.
Staff bags are the largest class of golf bags, and are generally seen carried by caddies or other assistants to professional or high-level amateur players. Staff bags are generally the same size or larger than a cart bag, and typically feature a single shoulder strap, a large amount of storage for equipment and even spare attire, and large logo branding designed for product placement on televised events.
Travel bags are available with many combinations of size and features, but are distinguished by rigid and/or heavily padded construction, including the clubhead cover, and locks on the zippers and bag cover. These features protect the TaylorMade SLDR Fairway Woods from abuse and theft, and generally makes the bag suitable for checked airline luggage.
There are so many kinds of golf bags and golf clubs online, like the new TaylorMade Tour Preferred MB 2014, it is really not so easy to decide which to buy. In view of the fast paced internet, I always like to buy online. And I am now keen on finding some cheap but excellent store to buy some clubs to fill my golf bag.
Online golf shopping cannot also save us time and energy, it can also help us enjoy the wondeful sight experience. A website store is just like a big supermarket, you can choose and find almost anything you want, of course include the golf clubs. Just take an action now!
The pursuit of more distance has reached an all-time high. TaylorMade company put out TaylorMade RBZ Stage 2 Fairway Wood that golfers can swing faster, that are easier to hit, and that golfers can hit further.
RocketBallz Stage 2 has been improved significantly to get you even more distance. The Speed Pocket is designed to improve speed, promote higher lanch and more spin. They are engineered to be extremely playable and easy to launch, thanks to the clubhead’s lower profile, shallow face and low CG. TaylorMade RocketSteel, a new high-strength alloy developed by TaylorMade and Carpenter Steel, allows for a thinner, faster, high-COR face that promotes faster ball speed for more distance.
Compared to the original TaylorMade RocketBallZ RBZ Fairway Wood, RocketBallz Stage 2 Fairways are engineered with a much lower profile and shallower clubface to make it exceptionally easy to launch the ball into the air. I like how they start on the crown and wrap around the club to tie into the look from the sole. You see a hint of last year’s RocketBallz in it, but there is definitely an updated look with the addition of more color and graphics on the Stage 2. I really like the contrast of the white crown and black face. They come together for a great look at address.
For colors they go with a very soft gray flanked by new yellow color and a touch of black as well. The graphic is mainly a triangle which has its point targeted on what seems to be the sweetspot of the clubhead. At the tip of the triangle is the Stage 2 Rocketballz logo which is a R done in the black and yellow colors. The side of the triangle that faces the golfer has a gray square and both tips of the triangle have the black, yellow and gray stripes.
TaylorMade does not go into much detail on what this screw does, although likely it is used as weight to help move the CG towards the front of the club. The screw is a metallic silver and has an extremely unique pattern which is likely a proprietary screw design for TaylorMade. The main top part is done in yellow and the sides and sock portion of the headcover is done in black.
In addition to that if I were a golfer that played a course regularly that required him to hit fairway woods off the tee this club would be an outstanding option. The ball rocketed off the face and was a pleasure to hit from the tee. The issue I often ran into was, the times that I didn’t hit the ball squarely enough off the fairway I would struggle if there were any forced carry involved.
I can say that out of three shots from the fairway, one would be crushed and go 10-15 yards farther than my current Mizuno JPX825 Fairway Wood, one would be average distance, and the last would chop some daisies and go 10-15 yards shorter than normal. Lastly, I am definitely impressed with the forgiveness of the Stage 2 fairway wood. It doesn’t take a perfect swing to get good results.
Nowadays, thanks to the popularity of golf, players are now beoming smarter on choosing golf clubs. Of course, everyone wants to buy new golf clubs. But more and more people are willing to choose used clubs. No matter what kind of clubs you choose, you need to buy the most suitable ones.
If you are new to the game of golf, on a budget, or you just don’t play much, you will want to consider buying a used set of golf clubs. In a lot of cases, people selling their old clubs aren’t selling them because they are bad clubs that caused them to go 20 over par every game. They are typically selling them because they have either given up the game or have upgraded their clubs to another, more expensive set.
However, you should take a good look at the used set before coming up with the cash just like buying anything that another person has used for a while. In this article, you will find a few hints about what to look for when considering a used set of best price golf clubs.
Firstly, it is important for you to do some research before purchase. When playing at your local course, try to rent different brands of clubs from time to time. Look in golf publications for reviews on various clubs to see what the pro’s recommend.
Secondly, try not to buy a set of clubs sight unseen, unless you have a pretty good sense of what you are getting. Online auction sites have lots of golf club sellers selling TaylorMade SpeedBlade Irons. Certainly, if the price and the brand are right, bid for the clubs. But most times, you will want to touch and feel the clubs before you purchase them.
In addition, please make sure they are in good condition when you find a set of used clubs you think you will like, Check out the clubheads and take a look at the grooves and how much wear they seem to have endured. You don’t want to buy a set of clubs that have faded grooves or dents. Check every Callaway X2 Hot Driver, not just the ones you think you will use the most. Also check the grips and the shafts. Make sure they aren’t too worn, bent or cracked.
Finally, remember to ask if you can take the clubs out for a spin if the seller agrees. Why? It is because that the only way to know if the clubs fit you well will be to play with them.
If you have done all the above, then you can go ahead with your buying used golf clubs. No matter new or used, the most suitable ones are the best ones!
DULUTH, Ga. — Fun-loving Miguel Angel Jimenez might turn the Champions Tour into his personal cigar-and-wine club. Ever-serious Bernhard Langer keeps churning out sub-par rounds. Bad back and all, Fred Couples is thriving in the wind and cold rain.
It makes for an enticing last group in Sunday’s final round of the Greater Gwinnett Championship.
Jimenez, continuing his impressive tour debut, shot a 2-under 70 with TaylorMade Tour Preferred MB Irons 2014 on Saturday and leads by one stroke after two days at TPC Sugarloaf.
Langer and Couples each had a 68 in the second round. Langer is one stroke back of Jimenez and Couples is two back, setting up Sunday’s all-star final group.
“That’s about as good a pairing as you’re going to get,” Couples said. “I’m thrilled about that, to have a shot at winning.”
Added Langer: “It should be an exciting shootout. … Whoever is going to win tomorrow is going to play some good golf.”
Jimenez, Langer and Couples carried over their momentum after strong finishes last week in the Masters. Jimenez was fourth, Langer tied for eighth and Couples tied for 20th in Augusta.
TaylorMade has today launched its new SLDR White driver. It features a low-forward centre of gravity that promotes high launch, fast ball speed and low spin for big, booming drives.
SLDR White maintains the modern classic Taylormade SLDR driver shape but now features a white crown, as well as a black button-back that works against the white crown for easy clubface alignment.
Golfers can once again take advantage of the easy and intuitive SLDR sliding weight that promotes up to 30 yards of shot shape adjustment. Players can also increase or reduce loft up to 1.5-degrees with a 12-position loft sleeve for optimal trajectory.
“The white crown with black button-back delivers a remarkable appearance at address,” said TaylorMade’s senior director of metalwood product creation. “Many golfers fell in love with white when it came out in 2011, and now we are delivering a limited edition white SLDR with low and forward CG for more distance when you loft up.
The drivers, in 9.5-, 10.5-, 12- and 14-degree, come standard with a Fujikura Speeder 57 shaft and TM 360 grip.
When TaylorMade launches a new product, it likes to make a splash. TaylorMade SpeedBlade is a game-improvement iron designed to build upon the successful RocketBladez platform or marrying a thin face with a “speed pocket”.
“Sure, I’ll take the extra yards,” said Rose, who switched to RocketBladez irons in his 3- through 6-irons earlier this year. “But it’s the ability to get the extra distance with the height that matters. If the ball comes in flat it’s not going to help. But these reach a nice apex and then come down with an angle of descent that it should have. That is a huge plus.”
Compared to the TaylorMade RocketBladez, the speed pocket has been widened and lengthened to provide a more effective area near the heel and toe areas. The topline is also a bit thicker in the longer irons. The clubs boast a satin nickel chrome plating with a dark smoke satin ion plating.
During the event each of the players hit some shots to demonstrate the zip on the clubs. Day hit several shots with a 3-hybrid and then a SpeedBlade 3-iron, the display resulting in fairly similar distances, but a better angle of descent with the iron. Rose hit shots with a TaylorMade MB Irons 2014 and the SpeedBlade 4-iron, the latter not only resulting in approximately 20 yards more distance, but more peak height.
When talking about golf, we always mean golf playing in a sunny and less windy day. Moreover, golf cam be played either in Spring, Summber and Autumn. But how about in winter? As we all know, there are also many other sports which can do in winter, such as skiing, skating and so on.
However, have you ever thought of golf playing in winter? I know that most people would never put golf in their sportting list during winter, such cold season. Actually, this is wrong! You can also play golf in winter. Today, I want to talk about winter golf playing.
People do not play golf in winter not only because of cold weather, but also because of the snow. You can even not find the ball on snow. Just imagine, if you are hitting TaylorMade SLDR Driver for golf swing, but you cannot find the ball? Frustrating? Yes, it is just not the right weather for a round of golf! Not only is it chilly, but it’s awfully hard to find a small white ball in a snow bank! So, what do you do in the winter to keep yourself in practice, motivated and ready for the first game in the spring?
There is no sense going into a depression when there are ways you can work on your game with the playing of TaylorMade SpeedBlade Irons, even in the winter. This is your “off-season” and like most athletes, they work during that time to take their game to the next level. This is a time where you evaluate your game and work on your weaknesses.
Yes, golf playing should be outdoors. But in winter, you can put golf into a inside door sport. Then a local gym would be your first and best choice. Most golfers need to increase their physical fitness, and strength and aerobic training will help prepare you for the powerful swing of a TaylorMade SLDR Fairway Wood to which you aspire.
In addition, you can check out your local golf course or country club. They may have golf fitness trainers who can be your personal assistant and provide you with a workout to follow during this down time.
Nowadays, as golf is becoming more and more popular, people can play golf at anytime and anywhere. For example, in some areas, there are indoor driving ranges that can help you perfect your swing and drives. There will also, most likely, be an area where you can practice your putting.
Winter golf playing can help you practise and improve your golf playing. Your progress in golf playing will be amazing for you and your friends (golf partners) after winter. Therefore, do not forget to train golf also in winter. You will be happy in golf playing improving if you insist on trainning in winter. Just keep it!
Preparing for your wedding ceremony working day is demanding, to say the minimum. You have to shop for the wedding gown, pick out bouquets and coordinate the decorations, select the time and place and even decide the seating arrangements. You’ll see me not attempting. When you get into these positions, just appreciate TaylorMade SLDR Driver and have a free, distinct mind – and play like it doesn’t really imply anything.
Use a hybrid from deep fairway tough. If your ball lies in higher grass that’s too thick for a fairway wood, the Titleist 913H Hybrid is likely your best wager. The hybrid’s compact clubhead is well-suited to slice through the rough whilst maintaining sufficient stability to let you play an correct shot.
Now we want to talk about how the club head swing. In short, to strike great shots, just need to do 3 things: In an instant strike, the face is the goal, from the inside to within swing path and angle relative to the ground than the ball flat. This will improve the club encounter angle, so that a six-iron increased to 7 or 8 point.
The subsequent aspect of learning how to play golf is learning the proper swing with Taylormade R11 Irons. You might think about that obtaining the right pose and right grip are easy. But the tough component begins with the swing. Numerous newbies spend a great deal of time perfecting the swing. In the beginning though, beginners might be limited to short swings.
And as they discover and enhance additional, they may begin learning how to make a full swing. Take be aware that studying the proper swing is extremely essential simply because the swing determines how the ball will behave. In short, obtaining the correct swing is what will deliver your wins.
This club fit that standard. Minimal offset at the hosel and not too thick on the top of the club, this club was very pleasing to the eye. The performance off the clubface was much more to what I was used to with my old Ping G20 Irons.
