Nike Vapor Pro Driver Photo Gallery

The Nike Vapor Pro Driver

Recently we took a quick look at Rory McIlroy’s new driver, the Nike Vapor Pro. There’s quite a few new features built-in to the Vapor Pro, and it’s getting a lot of good press from media and praise from players.

With the Vapor Pro top of mind, we thought it might be nice to take a closer look. Have a gander at the photo gallery below for more detail. Sure is a puuuurty lookin’ driver (at least in our opinion!).

Antigua Performance 72 Polos

Antigua Performance 72 Polos

Some time ago, the good folks at Antigua sent a couple of polos our way for review. Part of their 2014 Men’s Performance 72 golf collection, the polos are bright, stylish, and lightweight.

The first thing you’ll notice when slipping one on is how comfortable and lightweight they are. The materials are top-notch, and the stitching around the entire garment is tremendous. Not a stitch out of place.

PowerBilt Air Force One DFX Driver review coming soon

PowerBilt Air Force One DFX Driver arriving soon

Late last week we were contacted by the fine folks at PowerBilt, asking if we’d like to review their Air Force One ‘Deep Face Extreme’ (DFX) Driver. Of course we expressed interest (as we always do), and are now eagerly awaiting our demo to test on the range.

The Air Force One has been around for a few years now, and has won many awards. The new DFX model introduces boasts a deeper clubface (5mm deeper than the previous model). Combine this with the nitrogen that PowerBilt puts inside the clubhead, and the result is reduced spin and extra distance.

Available in high MOI and Tour models, the Air Force One DFX comes in lofts of 8.5, 9.5, 10.5 and 12.5. Standard shaft length on stock DFX drivers is 45.5″, and MSRP starts at $299.99

Can’t wait to get our hands on the PowerBilt DFX. Will keep you posted once it arrives. Until then, you can read more about the PowerBilt Airforce One lineup right here.

Chris Kirk’s winning equipment from the Deutsche Bank

Chris Kirk's winning equipment from the Deutsche Bank

This past Sunday Chris Kirk brought home the biggest title of his career, winning the Deutsche Bank Championship by two shots over Russell Henley, Billy Horschel, and Geoff Ogilvy.

While Kirk appeared calm and cool on the surface, Kirk humbly admitted afterwards that on the inside he was anything but.

The win vaulted Kirk to the #1 position in the FedEx Cup race. If he can hold on to his position through the end of the playoffs, Kirk will earn an extra $1.4 million.

Let’s take a look at what he had in the bag to bring home victory: 

Driver: 9 degree Callaway Big Bertha V-Series with Mitsubishi Rayon Diamana D+ Series 62X shaft
3 Wood: 15 degree Callaway X2 Hot Pro with Mitsubishi Rayon Diamana ‘ahina 80X shaft
Hybrid: 17 degree Ping Anser with Mitsubishi Rayon Diamana D+ Series 92HY shaft
Irons: Callaway RAZR X Muscleback (3-9) all with KBS Tour (X-Flex) shafts
Wedges: Callaway Mack Daddy 2 (47, 54, 58)
Putter: Odyssey Versa Metal-X Milled #9 HT
Ball: Titleist Pro V1X ’13 Dot

Well played Chris!

Tiger and Rory take the #IceBucketChallenge

Tiger and Rory take the #IceBucketChallenge

If there was ever a doubt that Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy are good buds, doubt no more. The duo appeared on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon just yesterday, and TODAY, they teamed up yet again for a great cause.

The pair took part in the #IceBucketChallenge to raise awareness of ALS. In a video posted on Vimeo, the pair are seen taking the challenge, and it’s pretty darn funny. Both Tiger and Rory made some interesting nominations too, so it’ll be interesting to see if the nominations come through within 24 hours.

Watch the Video on Vimeo

Well done to Rory and Tiger. Good to see the ‘human’ side to Tiger as well, for what it’s worth. With the rest of the year off to relax and rehab, we sincerely hope he’ll be back in top form come the 2015 season.
