As many of you know the process has begun for the “2018 PGA Show Edition” of the Teezy Awards. Before I really delve into that I have to point out that there are almost too many great products that were introduced last week at the PGA Show. It’s a great thing for the industry but it could also be a curse as well because it really makes it difficult to whittle the nominees in the field down.
However, as the year progresses and I test and review more products there will inevitably be a year end version of the Teezy Awards. That process has officially begun as of this afternoon. While I’m in Florida the plan was to play golf and start testing products while doing a couple of golf course reviews along the way for good measure. Products that I begun to test on the course today included the new TaylorMade Golf Project (a) and Project (s) golf balls. The immediate first impression of both golf ball models were that they were very impressive. I drew one conclusion of the two balls head to head and that conclusion was that I really preferred the overall performance of the matte finished Project (s). Special thanks go out to Eric Loper of TaylorMade Golf for spotting me these yet to be released golf balls.
Another product that I started testing already is a line of men’s underwear from UFM (Underwear For Men). While the brand offers several styles and lengths of men’s undergarments I opted to try their 3″ trunk version. Comfort, performance and a real sense of security for the parts in the southern hemisphere. Their drawstring is a stroke of genius that gathers all of the parts together making them different that other brands on the market. By the way, UFM held up real well throughout the golf swing today.
TRUE Linkswear. The brand has returned to the Pacific Northwest where they belong and moreover they’ve returned to their trademark comfort. Today, I wore my TRUE Original “kicks” during my round at Apollo Beach Golf Club and these shoes are actually more comfortable than I recollect from the past. A huge improvement that they’ve made is the spikeless pattern and the liner that keeps the foot secured in the upper. They were absolutely amazing today in wet conditions. I may have rode a cart but it was cart path only and my legs and feet feel fresh. Jason and company what a course debut.
Other products that’ll be getting reviewed while in Florida include Bolle Eyewear King sunglasses and the Monument Golf Stick-It Towel. Stay tuned for more great insights of some truly fantastic products.
Until The Next Tee!!
