The Adams Golf Speedline Driver not only claims to give you more distance, but tells you exactly how they plan to do it. Adams says that the driver will increase your club head speed anywhere from 2.5-4.2 MPH by producing less drag, and ultimately giving you 3-9 yards of extra distance.
They are very confident that their new Speedline Driver will add distance to your game. Now until April 30 you can go to any Adams Golf retailer participating in the Speedline Challenge and compare your swing speed to all of the other leading drivers. If you decide to purchase one they will give you an extra 20% off your trade in. Here are some spy pics of the Adams Speedline Driver. We think it looks pretty cool and is definitely an option if it produces the added distance for your swing.
- On 16 fairway Sean said, "177 just a solid 7?" and Tesori agreed. Pretty amazing considering the wind was into and from the right. And the fact that the temperature was dropping. And there was a hazard on the front left of the hole. And tiger was in the rough. Now, obviously I don't know the exact distance Sean hits his irons, but you would think that the caddy would have advised him to take a club that guaranteed the back of the green after a solid shot. And a solid shot is what Sean claimed to have hit there.
-Also, as if the lack of advice on 16 wasn't bad enough, explain to me the purpose of making Sean discuss the upcoming approach shot onto 18 for a bit longer? Maybe to ice him a bit? Or maybe to make him think about the lack of advice Joe gave him on 16 that resulted in a bogey? Golf is all about confidence, and saying "talk to me about that for a bit, we have plenty of time", (concerning Sean's club selection on his approach at 18) probably didn't make him feel too comfortable. Why not just give him the correct distance, make a club choice, and say "stick it." No wonder this guy doesn't caddy for Vijay anymore.
2) Boring and ridiculous commentary! No wonder most non-golfers don't like watching golf.
"The shadow of the ball is really getting long now."(referring to how 'dangerously' late it was getting)
-Way to paint an exciting picture by describing the harsh element of dusk guys.. luckily the players persevered.
"If Sean pars in he will win the golf tournament"(said Johnny Miller after the 15th hole)
-Are you joking me Johnny?! After the 15th hole, Tiger was down by 1, to a kid with only 2 PGA tour victories under his belt. At absolute best, pars would tie it up by the final hole, and ultimately cause Sean to get crushed in a playoff.
-Also, The gushing over Tiger's strength is getting a bit fruity these days. We get it! He's one of the first pro's in the sport to workout. That's great, and truly amazing. But if I have to hear about how much sand comes out of the bunker due to tigers "awesomely powerful core" again, Im going to mute the T.V.
3) Lack of amazement at Tiger's ability to make any putt at any time it's needed, literally.
-Well maybe not lack of amazement, but you would think that draining that putt on 18 would have sparked more discussion than his ability to hit a tricky bunker shot to 10 feet on 17. I guess this would ultimately go back under the boring commentary point above. Although, I do want to emphasize how bad this actually was, considering some of it came from golf's most colorful announcer.
4) Johnny Miller and Dan Hicks sitting nearly on top of each other in one of the final shots.
-Not that big of a deal, but worth mentioning how awkward and funny it looked. Miller and Hicks were basically in each others laps in one of the final zoomed out shots. And there was plenty of room to either side of them. I guess they had to sit like that for the closer up shots from earlier, but you would think NBC could figure out how to adjust. Or at-least how to make it look like their faces weren't about to touch.
The SWAMI 1500 golf GPS is by far one of the best golf GPS's we have tested at SpyGolfer. It is very accurate, easy to use, and reliable. It can even hold its own against a laser range finder because it really is so simple and convenient. No need to worry about aiming, pressing a button, or making sure that you have the right distance. You just look at it and it gives you the correct yardages to the front, middle, and back of the green, every time. It's also nice to know how far you have to the pin from any angle on a hole. Like when your behind some tress or bushes that aren't meant to be in your line. We would also like to mention how simple it is to load golf courses on the GPS. At first we were a bit weary of this step, but it actually turned out to be as easy as plugging it in to your PC, and clicking the courses you want.
It is unquestioned that Arnold Palmer, "the King" is one of the most popular golfers of all time. In addition to his Hall of Fame credentials, he's also well known for his charitable giving and being an "everyman" traced back to his blue collar Pennsylvania roots. However, don't think this easy going personality prevents him from being tough when comes to business. He can act as swift as any Mafia Don when someone crosses him. It is well documented that when Peter Kessler was critical of the King for promoting a nonconforming driver to be used by recreational players, he was promptly "let go" by the Golf Channel.
His latest victim appears to be Chris DiMarco, the popular die hard Gator golfer. In the past Chris made some comments regarding Bay Hill's greens being unfair or something to that effect. Thereafter, he started skipping Bay Hill and going on vacation with his family as his kid's spring break was at that time. This year his children's spring break did not conflict with the tournament, so he requested a sponsor's exemption, but was denied. Its hard to believe that a popular local golfer with DiMarco's credentials would be denied, unless he had said or done something that "the Don" didn't like. We'll let you be the judge.
Lastly, we want to make it clear that this article is not meant to be a slam against Arnold Palmer. We love Arnie and his army, and we definitely don't want to be "sleeping with the fishes."
UPDATE 3/26/09: Andres Romero withdrew from the tournament, so now DiMarco gets in as first alternate. Should be interesting.
A Florida judge tossed out John Daly's lawsuit against sports columnist Mike Freeman and the Florida Times-Union for a column the Times-Union published earlier in 2005. Daly originally sued for defamation, based on some of the comments made by Freeman in his article entitled "Daly Fails the Scoundrel Sniff Test."
Also, Freeman questioned "How does Daly not fail the scoundrel sniff test with fans despite possessing definite Thug Life qualifications. Look at the Daly blog. Domestic violence accusations? Yup. Substance abuse issues? Unfortunately, three different kids from three different moms, making him the Shawn Kemp of golf? Yes. A former wife indicted for laundering illegal drug profits? Roger that."
Pretty funny comments to be made about a pro golfer, we think. How often do you get to see the term "Thug Life" and "golfer" in the same article? We say thanks to John for keeping it interesting in a sport that is full of boring, straight laced "perfect" people.
Geoff Ogilvy won the Accenture Match-Play Championship for the 2nd time in 4 years. He methodically took down Paul Casey with a 4 and 3 victory on sunday. Needless to say, Tiger Woods's loss was more exciting and eventful. Although Ogilvy is an extremely talented player, he seems to have no discernable personality or charisma. However when asked if he was the best match-play player in the world, he quipped,"this week I probably was. Last year, I was the 33rd best match-play player in the world," referring to his previous 1st round loss. Good one Geoff! Maybe I was wrong.
