TaylorMade Golf has unveiled Corza Ghost, a mallet specially designed to be easy to aim, and easy to use to roll the ball down your intended line. It was designed with significant input from putting instructor Dave Stockton.

"We started with the intention of designing a putter that's easier to aim than any other," said Bill Price, Rossa senior director. "That led us to experiment with a white finish. We consulted Dr. Steven A. Hitzeman, a professor at the Indiana School of Optometry and he felt we were onto something."

"Corza Ghost's white putterhead stands out so clearly against its background - the putting surface - because of the high contrast between white and green," said Dr. Hitzeman, who is also a past president of the Indiana Optometric Association and a past chairman of the American Optometric Association's Sports Vision Section. "That high contrast maximizes stimulation to the retina and highlights the head's shape and features. The contrast would be lower if the putter were black or gray because these colors are closer in luminance to the color of the putting green than white. White creates the biggest difference in luminance, hence maximizing contrast and promoting focus. Many golfers use the leading edge of the putter as part of their alignment strategy (by positioning the edge perpendicular to the imagined target line). So, this high contrast for the leading edge gives the golfer the best chance of squaring up the putterface at address. Also, the lines on the top of the putter are painted black to achieve maximum contrast against the white surface of the putter. All of these high-contrast alignment elements give the golfer the best possible chance of accurately aiming the putter."

Behold, the TaylorMade R9 SuperDeep! Were extremely excited about this new driver. It's the successor of the R9 510 TP and comes in a sweet black finish. At address the SuperDeep looks like a 410cc-420cc driver, when in fact it stands tall at a beefy 460cc's. The sheer depth of the face is what makes this club look smaller than it actually is. It's also the deepest face TaylorMade has ever produced, but were not exactly sure how many millimeters yet.

The new Taylormade Super Deep driver is setup to provide a medium trajectory, but it's new MWT and FCT technology will allow for a total of 448 setup combinations. These combinations will allow you to alter the variable spin and variable launch. It's also got 8WMT weights that will provide a total of 56 different center of gravity positions.

The Super Deep will come standard with the new Aldila R.I.P shaft that was selected and adjusted to feature a more tip stiff design, which helps maintain the launch angle through impact. It will be released to the public in March and available in 8.5, 9.5 and 10.5 lofts. Can't wait to hit one! And we'll let ya know when we do!

2010 PGA Show: Cobra Baffler Woods (Spy Pic)

Cobra Golf was at the PGA Show this year in full force. One of their newest product line-ups showcased was the Baffler Woods. The Baffler Woods will be based on Cobra's popular Baffler Hybrid model, which features a design called the Baffler Rail F. This rail surface is at the bottom of the club-head and is said to create less club to ground contact. Cobra claims that this promotes better contact, which ultimately increases distance.

The new Cobra Baffler Woods are also wieghted similarly to the Baffler line by having added wieght at the bottom of the club to create greater swing speed. It also features a slightly larger head size compared to most fairway woods to allow for a bigger sweet-spot and better ball contact. We will be sure to update as more information comes out.

2010 PGA Show: SkyGolf SkyCaddie SGX

If your into golf and electronics, then you may need to check this out. SkyGolf released the new SkyCaddie SGX at the 2010 PGA Show and it makes some great strides at being more than just a simple GPS. The SGX is now part caddie.

This rangefinder uses a new technology called SmartClub that you put on the top of your grips. It allows the machine to identify the clubs without the need to enter them in manually. After a few practice sessions it will automatically learn your game and make club recommendations according to the specific situation and distance. So when you want to pull out what you think should be a 6 iron, the SGX will quietly remind you that your either crazy or simply mistaken about your abilities. Reaching that back of the green pin placement will take at least a 5 iron you goof, and the SGX isn't afraid to tell you.

Another cool added feature to the new SkyCaddie SGX is the social networking golf data. You will be able to share your game stats, including scores, shot distance, and even what's in your bag with friends, an instructorm or anyone else you wish to share with.

And if you don't have an instructor, or opinionated friends that think they can help, the SGX has you covered. The ClubSG that stores your information online can suggest a pro that will help you fix that ugly mess of swing.

One last perk... You don't have to tip the SkyCaddie a Grant(50 dollar bill) at the end of your round.
