Medi8 Golf is one of these firms that I work with and they are one of the more recent to join me in my endeavour to educate golfers on exciting new products to come to market.

Just A Few Things – Holiday’s, Wilson Golf Cortex and PGA Show Planning

Hey Everyone! I hope that all of my readers have enjoyed my content thus far in 2018. I promise that 2019 is going to be even better so in the meantime I just wanted to say a few things.

We’ve seen our first snowfall here in Niagara, Ontario and with it was my dogs first “Snowke Angel” thus proclaiming that winter is here. With that said it also means that the Holiday Season is upon us so that means a few things. The first of course is to always remain safe during this time of the year. For my American friends, Thanksgiving is fast approaching. that mean that so is black Friday and the official beginning of the holiday carnage that is holiday shopping. that said, keep an eye open for some holiday gift guides that I’ll be posting. While a couple are from marketing agencies that I’ve worked with I’ll be posting my own as is pretty customary. I will be exploring several price points this year instead of keeping everything to under $100. Not everyone (like myself) can afford gifts of huge values. My list will top out at $500 and it will feature products that I’ve used.

As most people know Wilson Golf and Golf Channel aired Driver vs Driver 2. The reality television show that provides competition for designers to design the next great driver from Wilson Golf. As we now know the design chosen to win was the design by Evan Hoffman called the “Cortex“. A driver that survived rounds of elimination to become the ultimate winner and providing Hoffman with a $250,000 USD payday. I took it upon myself to find one to have in hand yesterday and I will say a few things about it. In my opinion, the Cortex is the nicest looking driver that Wilson Golf has released to date. The shape is traditional and looks great at address. The face is deep and that’s a characteristic that I really like about the design. It features a premium shaft (Fujikura Atmos) and adjustability galore with movable weights, a sliding track and more. All of this is to control trajectory, direction, spin and launch. The Cortex will retail at $499.99 USD or $599.99 CAD. However, Cortex may face a similar problem that the Season 1 winner had… The Triton. In a golf store where many of it’s competitor’s will feature the same price point on the rack how many will be sold? Will golf consumers balk on the Cortex in favor of other brands for the same price? I don’t know how many Triton driver’s were sold but it seemed like a blink of an eye and they dropped to $179.99 on the Wilson website. Time will only tell and it’ll be up to influencers (like myself) and their Tour Staff to help Wilson put the Cortex  into prospective buyer’s crosshairs.

Lastly, the 2019 PGA Merchandise Show is approaching quickly. It is my plan to be in attendance for the show as I have been over the last several years. My stroke recovery has gone well and I am back in the gym working on regaining my strength. In 2019, I am going to change my coverage at the show a little bit.

I am hoping to provide coverage quick, early and often. Don’t be surprised if there are equipment reviews while I’m at the show. I do intend on posting the first review on Tuesday evening after the Demo Day is over. Already, appointments have been made by manufacturers wanting to meet with me. If there are any products that you want information on please drop me a line.

Well that’s it for now. Take care and I’ll see you on the next tee.

Until The Next Tee!!

Vijay Singh Wins with TPT Golf on Champions Tour

Another weekend and it’s another victory for upstart golf club shaft manufacturer TPT Golf. This is yet another notch in the Switzerland-based company’s proverbial belt. After a win on the PGA Tour at the Shriner’s Open (Bryson DeChambeau) a week ago. This past weekend it was Vijay Singh claiming victory and laying claim to the season-ending Charles Schwab Cup on the Champions Tour. What an amazing 2018 for TPT Golf.

Singh entrusted one of the 16 Series shafts from TPT Golf in his PING Golf G400 LST driver. For more details please see the press release below as shared by Mary Beth Lacy of golf marketing firm Mary Beth Lacy Inc.

16 series

RENENS, SWITZERLAND — TPT Golf followed up last week’s PGA Tour win with yet another victory, this week on the PGA Tour Champions with Vijay Singh. Singh won the Charles Schwab Cup Championship with a TPT Golf 16 Series shaft in his driver.

 

The 55-year-old Member of the World Golf Hall of Fame rallied from six shots behind on Sunday at Phoenix Country Club to claim the Champions Tour’s season-ending event. His final round of 10-under-par 61 tied the course record and gave him a four-shot margin of victory.

“Congratulations to Vijay Singh on his incredible play in Phoenix,” said TPT Golf Director Sebastian Sebayang. “It means so much to us to see our shafts helping golfers win at all levels of the game, from juniors to seniors to one of the best of all time. This is exactly what we hoped to see when we launched TPT Golf in 2016.”

 

The latest victory marks the 13th worldwide professional victory in the last 13 months for TPT Golf, which has earned wins on the PGA Tour, European Tour, World Golf Championships, Asian Tour, Korean PGA Tour, Korean LPGA Tour, and the Japanese LPGA Tour during the stretch.
