When Brian Gay won the Verizon Heritage by 10 shots, setting a record for highest margin of victory and shooting a final score of -20, he was rocking some pretty noticeable shades. These are the Jetty Black G12's by a company called KAENON POLARIZED:
"Jetty™ is an oversize, tall and boxy performance frame with plenty of street attitude which embodies the company’s Luxury Performance™ design and engineering mantra. A unisex frame that can be worn by men and women everyday, Jetty is also built to perform for the active lifestyle."
We think that they look pretty large, and might suggest something like the "Hard Kore" by KEANON POLARIZED for golf:
"Product Description: The result of innovative materials and a "function first" focus, Hard Kore™ is the ultimate performance product for today’s athlete and sports enthusiast. A testament to the company’s commitment to Luxury Performance™ design and engineering, Hard Kore is the next evolution of the brand’s award-winning Kore™ model."
Reports indicate that surgeons have worked to tie a gastric tourniquet on JD’s gullet, and that he is now working with Rick Smith on his swing. I’ve always been a big John Daly fan. He possesses that Everyman quality that makes his life a morality play in motion. If he re-adopts his stylish mullet, I’m sure he could return to his old self and go low.
Here are the latest spy pics of the new TaylorMade R9 Max Driver. It's very similar to the original R9, but it's a bit larger at 460cc's instead of 420cc's.

Let's golf is a new game for the iPhone's or iTouch. It looks like a pretty simple game that could easily kill some time, but the coolest feature seems to be the ability to play friends via WIFI. The game is currently available at the App Store for $5.99.
"The player control scheme is fairly simple: using the touch screen to hit the ball, you just bring your finger back in a semicircular motion and then forward again. To turn the golfer, you just tap your finger on the side of the screen you want the player to face."

Last Friday at the Outback Pro-Am in Tampa, Bill Murray accidentally hit a golf ball into Gayle DiMaggio’s backyard.Unfortunately, DiMaggio was standing in her back yard at the time, and the ball smashed her in the head!
Despite needing several stitches and feeling like she was “having a stroke”, DiMaggio spoke nicely of Bill: “He came over and laid down on the ground with me and he was very concerned, asking if I was OK.”
She continued: “Once he knew I was OK and not seriously hurt, then he started joking with me, asking how many fingers he was holding up.”
On the next day of Pro-Am, Bill came back to DiMaggio’s backyard to see how she was feeling, and signed a copy of Caddyshack, per her request.
Meanwhile, marshals wore hard hats for the remainder of the round.
Also, Bill Murray was seen looking unbelievably old.
Oakley has been a strong force in the golfing industry for quite some time now. But lately, we couldn’t help but notice that they’re beginning to dominate the scene. The list of Pro’s rocking their shades these days, seems to be endless. Players including Ian Poulter, Parker McLachlin, James Nitties, Ricky Barnes, Annika Sorenstam, Chris DiMarco, and Rich Beem, to name a few.
Some of this growing popularity and success can be attributed to Oakley’s intense attention to the golfer’s needs. They now have multiple frames and lens combinations that are completely golf specific, along with the ability to easily interchange the combinations, depending on the current light conditions.
We may call them “accessory lenses” but we make them for athletes who take full advantage of our adaptable eyewear. Engineered for our HALF JACKET® frame, these interchangeable lenses come in multiple color options. Choose a lens for the best optical performance under current light conditions, or switch to a different hue to change your look instantly.

Another major part of Oakley’s success has come from their ability to get their products in the hands of, or more specifically, on the faces of, their tour players.
The Oakley Golf Program not only continues to roll up solid results on the playing field of the PGA Tour this year, but hit the trifecta with our third Rolling O Lab stop at the Transitions Championships.
These rolling O-Labs follow the tour events year round in order to offer players the opportunity to customize and test any combination they want.
Which brings us to our final and probably most exciting feature: The ability to customize the exact look of your own pair, right on their site! It’s really easy, and completely detail oriented. You can edit and change just about any part of the model that you want, then all you have to do is click “add to cart.”
We love that the golf industry finally understands that we, the public, want more customization with our equipment. And it’s nice to see another great company like Oakley, heading in the same direction.
