Driven by Performance, Matthew Wolff Chooses Team TaylorMade with Multi-Year Full Bag Agreement

NCAA All-American and 2019 NCAA Division I individual champion set to play full arsenal of TaylorMade product as he makes his professional debut this week at the Travelers Championship

Carlsbad, Calif. (June 19, 2019) – Having already added top amateur standout Collin Morikawa to its dominant stable of athletes this summer, TaylorMade Golf Company announced today the addition of yet another amateur standout, consensus collegiate player of the year Matthew Wolff. Per his new multi-year agreement, Matthew Wolff will play TaylorMade’s metalwoods, irons, wedges, putter and ultimately, the company’s flagship golf ball, TP5x. The announcement comes on the heels of the 20-year-old’s decision to forego his final two seasons at Oklahoma State to turn professional.

Wolff, known for his unique and immediately identifiable swing paired with prodigious distance off the tee, has the charisma and demeanor far exceeding his 20 years of age and carries high expectations into his professional debut. The California native made his PGA TOUR debut earlier this season as an amateur at the 2019 Waste Management Phoenix Open on a sponsor’s exemption and is making his professional debut on Tour this week at the Travelers Championship at TPC River Highlands.

Victorious a school record six times with a 68.7 scoring average as a sophomore – the lowest in the history of college golf – Wolff capped off his tremendous collegiate career with an NCAA Individual title and both the Jack Nicklaus and Fred Haskins awards, given annually to the top collegiate player in the country.

U.S. Open Drama – But Is It Really?

It’s a rainy Saturday here as I look out the window after walking my dog. It sucks, I was going to go golfing while I wait for my wife to call me after a night out at a friends house. But, that’s simply not going to happen. It’s too bad too because yesterday I finally felt some things in my swing that felt really good. Oh well, there’s always my net later on. So I figured, what a terrific time to write a blog post. On what you may ask? Well, I guess the title really says it all.

US Open Golf

Brisk conditions lay ahead.

After the Open Championship the U.S. Open is my favorite golf tournament of the year (no disrespect intended to The Masters… I just simply love you). Year after year the USGA makes this tournament the ultimate golf test. Tough conditions to the point where the golf course is drained of its former self that ultimately sees the proverbial cream rise to the top. The USGA has been much-maligned in the past for this but to be honest… I love what they do when they set up the course for the Open.

2019, has been no different to an extent. The exception to this being that I’ve found the set-up this year to be pretty damn fair which is in a way a good thing. That isn’t saying that it’s quite set-up like the Pebble Beach Pro-Am but compared to Shinnecock Hills, Chambers Bay, et al it’s not quite the same. Sure the rough is grown out but the greens are certainly burned out having had the life seemingly sucked right out of them. Much in a way that’s similar to the scene in “The Prince Bride” where “Wesley” (played by Cary Elwes) is placed into “The Machine”. At any rate, “Mother Nature” is lurking in the Pacific and it’s going to be her that going to go a long way in crowning our champion. If this event turns into a “Battle of Attrition” it’ll be hard not to examine the possibility of a Koepka threepeat.

As I’ve watched the golf telecast on FOX (who ought to really stay in their own lane and stay clear of golf) I’ve found myself both bewildered and amused. Especially when it comes to the supposed controversy or drama between Jordan Spieth and his caddy Michael Greller. The fact that Spieth often talks out loud during his rounds is not a surprise. Is there a guy or girl in professional golf that talks to their golf ball more? Likely not. But when a tournament is covered by FOX that means that there is a host of cameras and of course microphones. The microphones pick up everything. Including this…

“Two perfect shots, Michael,” he said. “You got me in the water on one and over the green on the other.” – Jordan Spieth to caddy Michael Greller

Of course, everyone on social media and golf telecasts is talking about a riff or at least tension between the two usually amicable partners. Let’s have a look at some things for a second. Spieth whom in the past could do no wrong and was the second coming of Tiger has seen himself slip. His slip has been in the OWGR and in the eyes of golf fans. While he ranks 66th (at the time of writing)  in the FedEx Cup rankings it’s the slide to 28th in the OWGR that’s alarming and cause for “quasi-concern”. He hasn’t played to his level and there’s no doubt that he’s frustrated. Perhaps he has outside distractions? Getting back to the topic at hand and the issue with Greller. The first thing that I wanted to say is that I have no doubt that Greller has thick skin. He better, considering the paydays that he’s received while looping for Spieth. There is no tension in the sense that the media wants you to believe and if anything Jordan is looking to channel his frustration elsewhere. Queue Greller. As the caddy you have a few details in your job description other than the old adage “show up, shut up, and keep up”. They include but are not limited to…

  1. Being a counselor and/or therapist
  2. Being the source of vital information
  3. Researching hole locations and conditions overall
  4. Standing for countless hours on the practice grounds
  5. Keeping the player focused and…
  6. Club selection

Going back to Spieth’s quote. Greller selected the club and of course “the boss” has veto power. Spieth didn’t veto Greller’s selection and opinion of which club should be selected and used said club in both cases. Greller didn’t swing the club… it was Jordan and he failed to execute properly on both occasions. Jordan those two particular shots were on you. Their issues are simply non-issues and they’re fine and this is simply a case of “deflection”. Oh and one last thing. If you describe what transpired a “blasting” of Greller I suggest that you reevaluate your definition of “blasting”. Last time that I checked Jordan was a Texan and not a Canadian.

Patrick Reed. As a friend of mine Mike said on Twitter Reed is a whipping boy amongst golf fans on social media.

What I’m about to say really is in my Tweet that prompted Mike to say this. Patrick Reed was frustrated and he hit a poor shot. It happens, it’s golf and it is the U.S. Open. The number of golfers around the world that would feel his frustration is in the millions. It’s just that we all have different ways of dealing with it. Parick Reed chose to snap his wedge over his thigh (while not breaking his Femur) and that was the only damage that he did. Did he have a tantrum on the golf course like Sergio Garcia or Bryson DeChambeau have in 2019? No! So lay off of him. Yes he has not endeared himself to golf fans (the top 5 in the world comment was the beginning of this judgment) but just because he snapped a club means he’s disrespectful and something else not to like about him? Like I stated above. If Tiger did this, people would be ranting about how the USGA set up an unfair golf course and would be marveling at Woods’ “super-human strength”.

Oh and one last thing. Miss. Spiranac. I’ve played a lot of golf. Recreationally, Mini-Tours and so on. I’ve worked in the industry as a Starter, Pro Shop Attendant, Assistant Manager, and as a Director of Golf Services. I’ve never “tomahawked a club” (another Tweet of hers) but I have been tempted. I’ve also never broken a club before. Why? Because we all deal with things in different ways. I simply choose to swear under my breath, scratch my chin and move on. Golf can be madly infuriating and frustrating but in life, there are more important things to get upset over. Not being able to put milk on the table and having to go to the food bank, losing your house, being mired with a myriad of health problems or not being able to pay your bills and have no heat during a Canadian winter. In my eyes, golf is not worth getting that mad over and for those of us who have to work for everything that we have… we have more important things to spend our money on than buy a new shaft and grip and then install it or have it installed.

Until The Next Tee!!

SkyGolf® Celebrates its 20th Anniversary with the Launch of the Limited Edition SkyCaddie® SX500, With Unmatched Power and the Largest and Best View in Golf

In the very near future, I will be receiving a SkyCaddie® SX500 GPS unit from SkyGolf® to test and review. Early indications are that the SX500 GPS is a premier piece of technology that is designed for the sole purpose of allowing golfers to play better golf. A GPS unit with vivid graphics and a plethora of features like “SkyCaddie PinPoint®
technology”, “IntelliGreen® technology”, and their patented “Dynamic HoleVue™” offers golfers a lot of technology for their golfer buck.

As an introduction to the testing and consequent review of the SkyCaddie SX500 I would love to take this opportunity to share a press release from Tracy Nackel from public relations firm TEN Marketing & PR. The following press release will give more insight and details about the SkyCaddie SX500.

Until The Next Tee!!

#fightandgrind #seeuonthenexttee

 

RIDGELAND, MS, October 25, 2018… In commemoration of the company’s 20th Anniversary and in appreciation of its over 1 million customers, SkyGolf®, maker of SkyCaddie®, the most trusted Rangefinder in Golf, recently released its Limited Edition SkyCaddie SX500 GPS handheld with much acclaim. The SX500 is powerful, reliable, ruggedized, packed with stroke-saving technology and delivered with the largest and most visually stunning display among distance measuring devices in golf.

SX500_02

“Since 1998, SkyGolf has been dedicated to pioneering the use of GPS products to help golfers to improve their game. SkyCaddie is known for its accuracy and dedication to course mapping on the same ground golfer’s play rather than thousands of miles away on a computer. We believe that golfers can play better, play faster and have more fun, but only if they have distances they can trust in a readable, easy-to-use and intuitive interface,” said Jacqui Surman, SkyGolf Senior VP and COO. “We want golfers to play up to their full potential and have fun, too. So, we combined our twenty years of experience with the comments and suggestions of our many loyal customers to create what we believe is the best SkyCaddie Handheld GPS ever. And our customers must think so as well because we sold out immediately and in spite of increasing our manufacturing, orders have grown even faster.”

Here are just a few comments from those who ordered theirs early.

“The SX500 talks the language of golf and answers the questions you were about to ask.” – L. Nicoll, first time user

“The features and screen size make the SX500 a true yardage book replacement. After 42 holes of golf, I still had 66% battery life left. The screen was readable even wearing sunglasses.” – T. Hoyer, SkyCaddie user for 11 years

 “SX500 sets the new standard for golf distance measuring devices. I love it! It’s simple to use, with a clear display, even in bright sunlight. Start-up is quick: it’s easy to set up your round and update course maps via Wi-Fi. Accuracy is superb. You can see everything about the hole you’re playing laid out in front of you, especially hazards which are hidden by mounds or in fairway dips.” – L. Loberman, SkyCaddie user for 7 years

“The SX500 is Awesome, Large screen easy to use, recharges fast, charges last longer. Played two full rounds still had 57% battery. Accurate. And best customer support in the industry.” – P. Shepperley, SkyCaddie user for 12 years.

With its 5-inch, full high-definition touch screen driven by an ultra-fast multi-core processor, the SkyCaddie® SX500 is the most powerful way to measure yardage while providing the very best view in golf with vivid graphics and super large numbers you can easily read and most importantly…TRUST!

It is loaded with powerful, but easy-to-use new features including: SkyCaddie PinPoint® technology to support distances to daily pin positions; Dynamic HoleVue™ re-orients the entire highly-detailed hole map, automatically, so golfers can now see the entire hole from their point-of-view; HoleVue® Plus providing easy “pinch and zoom” access to up to 40 geo-referenced integrated targets per hole; and Dynamic RangeVue® providing customized ranging rings to match up with a golfer’s personal club ranges.

09_SX500_BigNumber_InDevice

The SkyCaddie® SX500 comes in a highly water-resistant, rugged design to stand up to most anything that comes its way on the course. With the largest battery in the industry, the SX500 is ready for an extra round or two. Using multi-constellation navigation satellite systems, the SX500 provides enhanced accuracy and overall better performance under tough conditions or tree cover.

Wi-Fi connectivity cuts the cord to streamline application updates and allows golfer to get the latest course information on demand without connecting to a computer. The SkyCaddie® SX500 comes preloaded and “ready-to-play” with over 35,000 ground-verified, error-corrected courses without the short-cuts taken by the competition. Only SkyCaddie walks each course to record thousands of points with sub-meter precision that allows golfers to know and trust critical distances and manage their game better. The powerful design of the SX500 includes a host of Intelligent Automation™ features such as Auto-Course Selection, Auto-Hole Advance, Auto-Zoom, Auto-Distance, Auto Green Depth and Rotating Auto-View making it touch-free from the parking lot to the 19th hole.

The SX500 provides a host of “patented” technology developed by SkyCaddie to help its customers play golf like a Pro. With SkyCaddie’s patented IntelliGreen® technology, the exact shape of the green automatically rotates to match your angle of approach to provide all of the distances you need to hit more greens and avoid 3-putts. This proprietary feature gives you a chance to turn every shot into a scoring opportunity by providing front carry and back distances, depth of green, and distances to any other point on the green — simultaneously. Available on select courses, IntelliGreen® Pro is a dynamically-enhanced version of IntelliGreen that adds the ability to display major tiers, contours, false fronts, and mounds from your angle of approach to the green.

Only available on the SX500, the new and patented Dynamic HoleVue™ feature rotates the fairway and orients the green from your current position and angle of attack as you move from the tee to the green. Now, you see everything between you and the green instantly without touching a button and get the distances you need to avoid hazards and play your best golf. The group behind will play through if you try that with a laser!

With the SkyCaddie® SX500, you learn quickly how far you hit each club. Customize
RangeVue® by entering your personal club yardages. Then as you play, you will see your club range next to the RangeVue ring on every part of the course for much improved shotmaking to fairways, layups and greens. RangeVue® with Club Ranges provides added confidence on every shot to avoid hazards and dial-in approach shots for more birdie putts.

SX500_05

SkyCaddie PinPoint® will obsolete lasers by providing the ability to get distances to the pin while getting all the benefits of IntelliGreen. Simply enter pin sheet or zone information into the SkyCaddie® SX500 to get distances to the hole, front, center and back PLUS the depth and true shape green… AND all of this information is on one screen that changes automatically based on your current position and angle of approach from anywhere on the course…whether you can see the flag or not. With the SX500, you get more information, from more places, easier and faster and without aiming!

The SkyCaddie® SX500 also provides digital scoring options for Stroke and Stableford with handicapping and tracks total putts and fairways hit. Turn the SX500 to the left or right and the AutoView feature displays a full 9-hole Digital Scorecard instantly in landscape mode.

More features of the SX500 include: Shot Distance Measurement to help track how far the ball goes and help golfers to learn club distances; Target List View to give a quick list of all the targets ahead of on the hole; and Tee Box Selection, Gender Selection, Dual Green Support with a yards or meters option, Stat Tracking and a North Indicator. The SkyCaddie SX500 also includes a 13-megapixel camera, enabling photos to be taken during the round and uploaded to the user’s SkyGolf 360™ online account.

13_SX500_IntelliGreenPro_With_RangeVue_InDevice

As with all SkyGolf e-golf products the SkyCaddie SX500 is built around the SkyGolf 360 platform, providing unmatched wireless connectivity for golfers to upload performance data captured during their round. SkyGolf 360 allows golfers to keep all performance data regardless of whether it comes from a rangefinder, a swing sensor, a performance tracker or a launch monitor in one place rather than scattered among various competitors with incompatible platforms. A single platform is not only to the golfer’s advantage, but it is also to the advantage of a teacher, PGA Professional or reseller to be able to offer all available tools a golfer can need to improve their performance from one source with the confidence their customers are getting the very best solution.

The SkyCaddie SX500 retails for $399.95. In the U.S., the SX500 comes with the introductory offer of a 1-year Double Eagle Worldwide Membership valued at $59.95

SkyCaddie® SX500 used by Peter Baker in Maiden Victory on Staysure Tour

RIDGELAND, MS, June 13, 2019… SkyGolf®, maker of SkyCaddie®, the most trusted Rangefinder in Golf, announced that Englishman Peter Baker used his SkyCaddie SX500 to help secure a five-stroke victory in this weekend’s Staysure Tour Senior Open Hauts de France by Jean Van de Velde at the Arras Golf Resort in northern France.

In addition, Spanish golfer and fellow SkyCaddie SX500 user, Miguel Angel Martin, followed up his third-place finish in last week’s Senior Italian Open with fourth place this week alongside Roger Chapman, Dan Olsen and Philip Price.

The new SkyCaddie SX500 is increasingly regarded as the sport’s most powerful distance measuring device. With Baker’s win, competitors using SkyCaddie SX500 have finished strongly in a Staysure Tour event for the second week in a row.

With five of the top ten finishers in the previous week’s Senior Italian Open also using the device, one third of the Top 15 players in the current Staysure Tour Order of Merit are SkyCaddie SX500 users.

Baker, a three-time European Tour winner who represented Europe in the 1993 Ryder Cup, was one of the first Staysure Tour competitors to start using a SkyCaddie SX500 in November of 2018.

“I used my SkyCaddie SX500 frequently this weekend in France” said Baker, who is Head Professional at The South Staffordshire Golf Club near Wolverhampton. “From the tee I used it to work out layup and carry distances, particularly when bunkers or water are in play. And with the day’s pin positions entered into the SX500, it is also great for distance control as regards shots to the green. I use the SkyCaddie to pick the right spot to land the ball on the green – it shows me what’s short of the pin and what’s beyond it too.”

The Staysure Tour heads to the U.K. next, with the Farmfoods European Legends Links Championship starting on June 21st at Trevose Golf & Country Club in Cornwall. The event is hosted by Ian Woosnam, who is another SkyCaddie SX500 user.

“We congratulate Peter on his brilliant victory. It’s thrilling to see Europe’s best golfers turning to the SkyCaddie SX500 for their yardages under intense tournament conditions,” said Jacqui Surman, SkyGolf Senior VP and COO. “That indicates a high level of trust in our course data and validates our policy of always creating and updating every golf course map on foot.”

“It’s not just tour pros who are changing their habits. More and more amateur golfers throughout the world are now realizing that the SkyCaddie SX500 is much more powerful than a laser out on the golf course.”

The SkyCaddie SX500 makes a great Father’s Day gift. For a limited time, save $50 instantly on a new SkyCaddie SX500. For more information, visit www.skygolf.com.
