The first of a three part series looking at the newest clubs to hit the shelves of golf stores and websites in 2014, we begin by looking at the long sticks in the bag, the Driver and fairway woods
Outlined below are some of the most eagerly anticipated new drivers and fairway woods of 2014, which, if any, of these will you be trying out at a pro day at your local range with a view to adding to your bag?
When three companies, including two of the biggest golfing organisations in the world, team up to produce a new golf product, then you can be sure the golfing world will sit up and take notice.
And that is precisely what has happened after the PGA of America, the Golf Channel and Active Mind Technology pooled skills and resources to produce one of the most innovative golfing products in many years.
It’s called the Game Golf Digital Tracking System and it could revolutionise the way you play and view your golf.
At the highest level of the game all the best players can hit all the shots in the bag, but there are a surprising number of golfers of lesser ability, who can still produce some high quality shots on a seemingly regular basis.
Yet, paradoxically, when they take their pristine game from the range onto the course, they tend to fall apart slightly. Why is this the case?
The key lies in developing the other side of your golf game that isn’t to do with shot making, but instead is played on the course that exists permanently between your two ears.
Before you know it, 2014 will be upon us and with it heralds the start of a new year of golf and of course, for many of the world’s top players, their focus will primarily be on four events.
This year, we have the Masters in April at Augusta, the US Open at Pinehurst No. 2 in June, The British Open from Hoylake in July and lastly the USPGA Championship at Valhalla, Kentucky in August.
Plus, in September the eyes of the world will descend upon Gleneagles to witness the 2014 Ryder Cup.
Gorilla Golf will now take a look in our crystal golf ball to see which players, and team, will be celebrating major success in 2014.
As we are in the grasp of Winter, now is a great time to dig out the clubs and start doing a little work in preparation for the warmer weather, longer days and the start of the 2014 golf season for most amateur golfers.
Sure, the professionals are already well in action, but for the majority of us, its either a choice of winter golf (if available) or a wait until the weather improves and the snow melts to head out onto the course.
That said, there’s still lots you can do to prepare yourself for the new season and in this article, we’ll look at three great ways you can get yourself in shape ready for the better weather.
Although he may have slid down the rankings in 2013, there’s no doubting that golf’s ‘big two’ are still the two players who enjoy a massive endorsement from Nike Golf; Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy.
Both have had well-documented travails with their equipment in recent times. Tiger’s dodgy driving has been dogging him for a little while (though did seem to improve in 2013) whereas McIlroy’s switch to Nike clubs in 2013 preceded a disappointing season for the Irishman.
Will 2014 be any better and what clubs are these two powerhouses of the game carrying in their bag?
Let’s find out!
It is a big deal for a golfer to receive a sponsorship deal from a club manufacturer. At one end of the scale, the likes of Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy can coin in millions a year from lucrative sponsorship deals alone.
At the other end of the scale though, sponsorship means that players fighting for a place on tour will have travel expenses or other out-of-pocket expenditure met, meaning that they following their dream does not become too much of a financial burden if they fail to make the required impact.
In this article, we’ll simply take a look at which golfers are signed up with many of the top golfing providers. We think you’ll find this list illuminating, as well as surprising…
