Tournament Rained Out? Don’t Worry We Have Your Back

What about that big upcoming tournament, the weather doesn’t look too promising does it? What are you going to do? Well, you are going to the tournament and you are going to cross your fingers. At least that is what I would be doing. I booked the day off, paid the money to enter the tournament and what if I can’t get another day off. Then what?

If you’re me, you’re going to go anyways. Why you ask? Because the course has a nice time consuming game that you can play. Get your mind off of the worries and who knows maybe the rain will clear allowing you to still play the tournament. But for the time being you can find something else to do.

Introducing “Stroke of Luck”. What is stroke of luck you ask? Good question. Stroke of Luck is a game of chance. You putt to win in this game. You can play it in the clubhouse, on the patio or even in the lounge. So even if it’s raining outside you have the ability to play. What the heck…let’s put a wager on it!

Stroke of Luck is a putting board game. It’s lined up with various cards and also comes with a set of dice. It comes with a Universal putter that’s good for lefties and righties. There are 3 golf balls included as well.

The object of the game is simple.. “putt to win”. Let’s say you want to play a round of poker. You roll the dice to determine the starting position of the ball. You then take turns putting until you get a winning hand. Before each turn you roll the die to determine where you will be putting from. A bit of a challenge wouldn’t you say?

In addition there are ways you can make the game more challenging. The game has a “stimp” (green speed) of 10-11. You can adjust the stimp and make it duplicate a break in the green if you really want to make it even more challenging. This can be done by a rope or something put under the map. Go ahead… give it that “uphill lie”.

This game can be played with the rules of just about any card game that’s dealt but it just depends on what you want to play. Poker seems to be the best option but there is a way to play Euchre as well.

So, now that you know a little bit about the game how can you get it? Currently it’s not for sale currently since it is a brand new game. As of January 15, 2019 you can start to order it online at 2skills.net. There are 2 sizes you can purchase.

The “Executive” version comes in a 3′ x 8′ mat at a cost of $799 (plus S&H) and the “Club” version comes in a 4′ x 12′ mat at a cost of $939. This is a small price to pay for the amount of guests that you’re going to keep in the clubhouse during that bad weather. It will pay itself off in mere weeks. Also note the cards on each mat are dealt randomly so if you buy multiple mats they won’t be the same.

I myself am looking forward to seeing this product in action in January at the 2019 PGA Show. I think it’s time you start looking around too. For areas like where we live the golf season will come fast. Just think when we have snow on the ground we can still practice our putting.

Until The Next Tee!!

RENENS, SWITZERLAND — TPT Golf is launching its much-anticipated line of revolutionary golf shafts to golfers in Malaysia through MST Golf, the country’s largest golf retail specialist.

MST Golf will be the exclusive retailer of TPT Golf shafts in Malaysia, offering TPT Golf shaft fittings at its Technical Centers located at TPC Kuala Lumpur, the Intermark Mall in Kuala Lumpur, and at its Petaling Jaya Superstore, the largest fitting and service center in Malaysia. MST Golf will also make TPT Golf shafts available to golfers through mobile fitting events located throughout the country.

“We’re excited to partner with MST Golf in Malaysia where demand for TPT Golf shafts has been incredibly high,” says TPT Golf Director Sebastian Sebayang. “Each time we enter a new market, we strive to ensure we’re partnering with a company that shares our vision of offering golfers not only the best experience and technology currently available, but also the highest level of fitting expertise. With MST Golf, we’ve found a perfect fit.”

Since launching its innovative line of golf shafts less than two years ago, TPT Golf has already achieved 10 professional wins across the globe, earning the Switzerland-based company the reputation of “The Hottest New Shaft on Tour.” The company’s impressive resume currently boasts wins on seven professional tours, including the PGA Tour, European Tour, Champions Tour, Asian Tour, LPGA of Korea, LPGA of Japan, and a World Golf Championship.

“We are excited to be in partnership with TPT Golf, which is gaining popularity among serious golfers and tour players alike,” says Ng Yap, CEO of MST Golf. “We have witnessed the increase in performance, as well as the improved launch monitor numbers when fitted correctly. Our certified fitters are looking forward to offering TPT Golf shafts to our consumers.”

TPT Golf creates its driver and fairway wood golf shafts differently than any other golf shaft company. The company’s patent-pending, automated golf shaft manufacturing technology — the Thin-Ply Winding Method — is a pioneering process that allows TPT Golf to position its carbon fiber prepreg in the exact locations and orientations necessary to create the optimal performance for golfers of all abilities. It also removes the inconsistencies present in conventional graphite shafts such as “spines” and “seams” that have been plaguing golfers for decades.

When a TPT Golf shaft is properly fit, its more axially consistent design results in more consistent impacts. The combination of more consistent impacts and TPT Golf’s optimized bending profiles are what result in significant distance gains, as well as straighter and more consistent drives.

TPT Golf shafts are sold exclusively through its network of Authorized Fitters, which currently includes more than 200 elite fitters located across the world. Golfers can visit https://tptgolf.com/where-to-buy/ to locate a TPT Golf Authorized Fitter near them.

TaylorMade Golf NOT Attending the 2019 PGA Merchandise Show

A day ago or so I saw a rumour floating across the internet. The rumour was that TaylorMade Golf would not be attending the 2019 PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando, Florida.

Instead of opting to go by what I saw over social media I decided to go to the source. So I reached out to Nick Obritsch who is the Marketing Manager for TaylorMade-adidas Golf (Canada) to confirm or debunk the story. It has been confirmed that TaylorMade-adidas Golf will not be attending the PGA Merchandise Show in January.

This is a bit of a “black eye” for the event that features all of the latest and greatest that the industry has to offer. An event that seems to have lost a little bit of its lustre when talking to other media outlets or attendees alike.

TaylorMade-adidas Golf is obviously one of the industry “David’s”. The brand has never shied away from having a tremendous representation at the PGA Merchandise Show. The brand used to take up a large segment of one end of the Orange County Convention Center. One year in particular they had an area that felt like you were at a lavish South Beach nightclub. In the past TaylorMade-adidas Golf has made huge announcements at the annual show. The largest of the bunch was in 2017 when the brand announced that Tiger Woods would be playing TaylorMade Golf equipment.

Below is the official statement from TaylorMade Golf regarding their reason for not attending. Thanks go out to Mr. Obritsch for providing the official statement. One way or another I will provide coverage on the 2019 product range from TaylorMade Golf. That I guarantee.

David Abeles, CEO, TaylorMade Golf:

“In the coming years, TaylorMade plans to broaden its investment in the PGA of America, pursuing growth initiatives we believe create even greater value for the game of golf. As a result of the additional spend and following significant discussions with key stakeholders, including many of our TaylorMade PGA staff professionals, the decision was made to not attend the 2019 PGA Merchandise Show.”

Until The Next Tee!!
