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…
We have tried the Snugg iPad mini cover now for over two months and the results are generally very positive.
When it arrived at GorillaGolfBlog, we were somewhat startled by the bright orange color but we quickly got over that as it turned out to be very trendy and in fact made the case extremely visible – we definitely like the orange color.
The next impression was that at first it seemed much thicker than the previous cover that we had before, but we got used to that right away. In fact, Snugg cover gave the impression to be much more solid and protective of the mini iPad.
It’s not often that we can head into a new year thinking that we may be on the verge of a very special year in the golfing world, but 2014 may well be shaping up to be that way.
Seldom has the professional golfing world been in such rude health, with so many genuinely top quality players vying for the top spot in the world rankings.
So could 2014 be arguably the greatest golfing year of the modern era? Possibly so, and here is why:
So far in this series we’ve looked at Drivers and Irons, missing out fairway woods and hybrids as well as wedges because these items may not all be the same for every golfer, whereas almost every golfer will carry around a Driver and a set of irons in their bag.
Of course, the other club that a golfer will have in their bag for sure is the short-stick; the humble putter.
It is worth noting that putting is very much about feel and as such, while we recommend the putters below, we’d strongly advise taking the recipient of any putter below (especially the top of the range and mid value options) to your local stockist to try before you buy.
So for the third and final time, we’ve been hunting around for the best putter deals this Christmas which will help your golfing fanatic achieve more success on the greens in 2014.
And this is what we believe are the best trio of putting deals for Christmas 2013.
Last time out we looked at the best drivers available this Christmas in both the top price, mid-price and lower price range.
Given that nowadays many people have different set ups involving fairway woods and hybrids, were skipping these clubs and looking instead at another group of clubs that every golfer has in their bag; irons.
Like last time, Gorilla Golf have been sniffing around the golf shops looking for the best iron deals this Christmas if you fancy buying a loved one a golf gift that they will really love.
Once again, we’ve found three sets of irons to suit all budgets, high, mid and lower priced options.
