TIBA Putt Can Improve Your Putting for Just 20 Bucks

when the guys at TIBA Putt sent us their Impact Zone Training Aid, which promises to improve swing path, face angle, and distance control for the inarguably affordable low price of $19.99, we figured it couldn’t hurt to take a look.

We’ve profiled several devices claiming to do basically the same thing that TIBA Putt does, but when you considering that just about all of them are $70+, (and some are over $200), $20 sounded like an absolute steal. [READ MORE]

Rory McIlroy Bags Vapor Pro Driver – Nike Golf Wins the Ryder Cup

Nike Golf just won the Ryder Cup.

How to Save the Great American Golf Shop

In the previous article I suggested some pretty obvious (I think they’re obvious anyway) things retailers can do to try and make up for business lost to the internet. If you’ve got the space, sell buckets of balls. Regrip and repair clubs. Give lessons. If you’ve got a launch monitor (and you should), lease largely unsupervised time on it.

If you’ve got the population to support it, follow the lead of the New York Golf Center and others like it, and expand your business to include a true, build-on-site, custom fitting department.

All that sounds great, but my guess…or at least my hope is that most shops are already doing most or all of the above.
