Kirkland Signature Golf Balls
On December 20th around lunchtime, Costco released it’s latest batch of Kirkland Golf Balls, retailing at $30 per 2 dozen. Almost immediately, Costco’s website became overloaded and the balls sold out within 30 minutes -- some customers even received notices that the balls that they ordered were actually not available. I...
Wilson Triton Driver
As of December 12th, Wilson’s winning Driver vs. Driver product had yet to join the USGA’s conforming club list for two of its three loft variations. On the surface, this seems like an shortcoming of the rapid product development nature of the whole process. Consider that Wilson began the process...
Congrats to Bryson DeChambeau for winning the Memorial PGA tournament with Single Length clubs! Bryson's second career win catapults Bryson to #4 on the PGA money list and in the FedEx Cup point list, which puts him in great position for the rest of the 2018 PGA Tour season.
Golf Question Mark
I love a good survey, especially a relevant golf survey. More specifically, I like seeing how “conforming” or “nonconforming” I actually am.

For those of you who have yet to experience TopGolf, you have to at least have to try it once. The mix of golf, food, and drinks is a winning combination, although I often wonder how more intoxicated people don’t fall off the second and third floors after an...
Polar Bear
Regardless of whether you think that people are causing global warming or if you think that the earth is simply warming up like it does every few hundred thousand years, most people do believe that overall, the weather is getting warmer year-round. The latest evidence of this is substantially warmer...
Twitter Blocked
Have you ever heard a golfer over-estimate his game based on a couple good holes? It seems that this phenomenon is not limited to weekend warriors, but extends to golf television personalities as well. Brandel Chamblee is one of those TV personalities who makes a living being controversial -- from often...
Wailea
I’ve never been on a cruise, but I might go for one of these week+ long golf cruises. Personally, I would choose the Hawaii trip since I’ve been there before, but didn’t get the chance to play any golf at the time. But at $8,950, per person, per day, this 10-day...
Wesley Bryan From Cart Path
Trick shot guru and newly minted PGA Tour professional Wesley Bryan is doing it again at the Valspar Championship, making a birdie from the cart path. I can’t imagine that any other PGA player would even consider taking this shot, much less pulling it off by hitting it close enough...
Arccos Golf Stat Tracking System
Arccos is one of a growing number of companies targeting the analysis and gamification of players’ golf games. Their sensors screw into the butt-end of your golf club and are paired with an app on your smartphone. I briefly used a set of Arccos sensors a couple years ago, but...
