What's new in the World of Golf in 2012?

Moore’s law states that computer technology gets twice as powerful, or twice as fast, every two years. There isn’t a golfing equivalent for that law, but perhaps there should be. Innovative design in golf sees a wave of new items released each year for the very best golfer, down to the occasional amateur hacker and 2012 is no different with a number of important new developments in the world of golf.

1. TaylorMade Golf R11S Driver  ($399 or $499 for the TP version with different shaft choices)

The white headed R11 made a splash on tour last season with many top professionals including Rory McIlroy and Luke Donald opting to use the distinctive club. However, TaylorMade have released an updated version in 2012, the R11S. The R11S is slightly larger at 460cc’s compared to the R11 440cc’s. Despite the size, weight has been kept down due to a new Thick Thin Crown construction on the club head. The club head has also been redesigned slightly to improve aerodynamics. The Movable Weight Technology allows the player to adjust the centre of gravity of the club to help improve ball speed. Due to the increased number of settings, improved club head speed and speed of the ball off the face, experts reckon tour pros will get an average of an extra 7 yards per drive compared to the old R11.

The new R11S was released in early February 2012.

2. Nike 20XI Golf Balls

When Tiger Woods is the golfer trying out a new golf ball, you can be sure it is going to be tested to the max. The new Nike 20XI ball is one of the most eagerly anticipated new releases in 2012. At the heart of the ball is a brand new resin that has shown to be lighter and faster than rubber. The company says that during trials, the ball has given golfers an increase of 2-3 mph in their speed of the face and that most golfers feel the ball travels between 6 and 10 yards further.

3. Max A. Mandel Municipal Golf Course

The Robert Trent Jones II designed golf course is a gift from local executive and philanthropist Max A. Mandel to the local community of Laredo. This is a municipal course built for the local population but to the exacting standards and quality of any top private course. Each hole has five sets of tees, including a junior tee, to encourage family play, this means the course can play as short as 4,673 yards or as long as 7,069 yards. The focus is very much on community golfing and is enhanced by the inclusion of a 10-acre practice area, including driving range, putting green, chipping and bunker practice areas. The land was gifted by the Mandel family for the project and the beautiful Rio Grande river snakes its way through the course.

The Max A. Mandel Municipal course is scheduled to open in Laredo, Texas in early 2012.
