Nike Joins Limited Edition Paint Craze with VRS Covert 2.0 Black

In a move that further supports my contention that Nike is finally starting to get golf, the company today announced the impending availability of a Limited Edition (Here. We. Go. Again.), Matte Black version of their VRS Covert 2.0 Driver.

At least they managed to keep the word innovation out of the discussion.

Whoops…never mind. I see it now. [READ MORE]

Golf Is Awesome so stop trying to hack it and instead embrace what makes the game so damn great!

The problem with HackGolf is that to date it’s a community of mostly avid golfers complaining about everything that’s wrong with golf. The new blood (guys who don’t play golf at all – and can provide a reasoned explanation for what that is) is largely absent. The guys talking about what’s wrong with golf, are the ones playing most of the golf.

Here’s everything I hate, but I play anyway…but YOU still need to fix it.

The HackGolf approach is all wrong. To grow golf we don’t need to tear it down. It doesn’t need to be hacked. We need to tap in to why it is that we play this amazing game despite the hundreds of things that are apparently terribly wrong with it.

Each and every one of us loves golf. Reasons may be singular or many, but WE LOVE GOLF.

Share the love, grow the game. That’s what I believe. [READ MORE & ENTER TO WIN]

Golf’s Most Wanted – 2014 Golf Shoes

When we set out to put together the New Shoe Buyer’s Guide, it became obvious that the shoe market has grown considerably. Even after restricting the field for the New Shoe Buyer’s Guide by limiting the contenders to only new shoe models or significant model modifications, there are still quite a few options competing for your dollars.

We reviewed shoes that span the spectrum from budget to luxury and posted scores spanning the spectrum of letter grades from A to F. During the testing, there were certainly plenty of surprises and a handful of shoes scored higher and some scored lower than you would probably expect. While prices are typically good indicators at the extremes, the mid-priced models scored all over the map. [READ MORE]

TaylorMade Announces SLDR White. . .Seriously

How do you improve the #1 Driver on Tour?

You could make it more adjustable. You could offer a bevy of zero upcharge shaft options. You could make it sound and feel better.

You could even make it longer.

Or, using the TaylorMade logic, you could make it available in a second color.

Seriously. That’s what TaylorMade is going with. SLDR is now better because of an alternative paint scheme.

TaylorMade is calling the White SLDR The Other #1 Driver. [READ MORE]

SPY PICS! – Cobra “Shikon” Concept Irons

File these away under You Never Know.

These concept drawings of what’s been labeled as Cobra Shikon irons were posted to a popular design site earlier this week. As is usually the case, we don’t know the whole story behind the design.

These could simply be random ideations. They could be two among several designs for products that will never see the light of day. Or…they could provide a glimpse of what’s to come. [READ MORE]
