Brandt Snedeker has finally changed his four year old Bridgestone J40 irons. Having admitted that: “I don’t like changing equipment.” Sneds has switched to a new set of Bridgestone J15CBs for this weeks Bay Hill Invitational.



“Best I hit my irons all year long,” he said, adding that he's hitting his new clubs higher, longer and straighter.

Something is clicking for sure as he's finishing up his third round and shooting a 66 and inching closer to the lead.

A little luck never hurts either.

Press Release

ECCO® Golf Launches Fred Couples ‘Signature Edition 1992’ Commemorative Shoe

(MARKHAM, ONTARIO) – Danish company ECCO – a leading manufacturer of innovative footwear – announces that a Fred Couples ‘Signature Edition 1992’ version of its acclaimed Casual Hybrid model will be available at select retailers worldwide beginning early April.

Co-designed by Couples, the shoe commemorates his two-stroke victory at the 1992 Masters. Produced in a limited run of 1,992 pairs, it boasts an eye-catching white/green color combination and is laser-engraved with Couples’ distinctive autograph on the lateral (outer) side.

“The Masters is a really special tournament for me and I always appreciate the support ECCO provides,” says Couples. “I thought we could do something really fun with the Casual Hybrid this year and am thrilled by the design we created.”

Retailing for $250, the Fred Couples ‘Signature Edition 1992’ model combines a sleek sneaker look with a premium leather upper and advanced performance technologies. Highly water repellent via the proprietary ECCO HYDROMAX™ treatment, the shoe is built atop the patented E-DTS outsole.

Rory Throws Club Into Water - Diver Fishes It Out

By Sean Crogie   Posted at  3/07/2015 10:08:00 PM   No comments
Probably not the best example for the young golfer on golf etiquette. Rory McIlroy sends his 3-iron in the lake on the par 5 No. 8 at Trump National Doral after hitting his second shot in the water. What`s your opinion? He did manage to salvage his round with a 2 under round of seventy and a T11. A diver managed to fish out Rory`s 3-iron, bonus!





“Felt good at the time,” McIlroy said. “Look, I just let frustration get the better of me. It was heat of the moment, and I mean, if it had been any other club I probably wouldn’t have but I didn’t need a 3-iron for the rest of the round so I thought, why not?”

Lydia Ko Gets A Tattoo To Celebrate First Win

By Sean Crogie   Posted at  2/24/2015 10:15:00 PM   No comments
Love golf, love tattoos. So hearing about Lydia Ko getting some ink in celebration of her first professional win, the Swinging Skirts LPGA Classic last spring. I think it's great, getting the date (April 27, 2014) -- in Roman numerals on her wrist.

Some would said she's just a crazy seventeen year old but the LPGA top-ranked woman golfer in the world is a pretty cool golfer if you ask me. Well done Lydia.



Here's the transcript of Lydia discussing the tatt.

Q: Can you talk us through the ink that you’ve got on your arm?

A: “It’s the Swinging Skirts LPGA Classic tournament win date last year in April. It’s my first win on the LPGA as a LPGA tour member. My parents were there and I felt like it was a very memorable win so I got that tatted up.”

Book Review - Golf Etiquette Quick Reference

By Sean Crogie   Posted at  2/23/2015 09:32:00 PM   No comments


While not your conventional "golf" book Yves C. Ton-That, a leading rules experts has put together a great reference tool when it comes to golf etiquette. "Golf Etiquette Quick Reference" is the perfect guide for those looking to brush up on the correct conduct on the golf course. Etiquette can sometimes be intimidating but Yves goes through many points in a clear and concise manner making it ideal for those new to the game plus the season veteran golfer looking to brush up on this highly addictive sport.

Neatly arranged in 8 color coded sections it's easy to flip through to sections involving conduct before a round or conduct in and around hazards. This isn't a book your going to read from start to finish but more of a book you can flip through and become acquainted with different sections.

I really liked the fact the book is small, just a little larger than my iPhone and can be easily stored safely in my golf bag because of the hard plastic cover.

I could definitely see this being a great guide and reference tool when I have any of my three kids on the golf course. Not referring to it all the time but using it once a round to refer to a certain point of etiquette of golf. Plus it would be a great refresher for me as well.

Reasonable priced at $12.95 USD.

Cigar Etiquette/ Rules on the Golf Course

By Sean Crogie   Posted at  2/16/2015 09:13:00 PM   No comments
Watching the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am this weekend got me thinking about cigar smoking on the golf course. While I’ve on occasion enjoyed a cigar both socially (ah! Miami) and on the golf course. It’s always smart to go over a few points of etiquette before you light up on the golf course even for the veteran cigar aficionado and especially the newbie.


Ask Before Lighting Up
Before you light up be sure and ask your playing partners if it’s OK if you light up. It’s all about respect.

Bring Extras
It’s never cool to light another man’s cigar or share, so bring a few extra for those that want to indulge with you out on the links. Bring a variety of cigars as well as flavours and strengths as most newbies might not want to start out with a Presidente. That’s when you search out some great cigar deals online.



Disposal of Cigar
So I know you’re outside enjoying a nice Cohíba cigar and a round of golf but tossing your cigar just anywhere is definitely frowned upon. Keep the greens clean. Nobody wants to putt through your cigar butt or either. So be respectful of your group and the groups to follow and bring along an ashtray (ash management)

Bring the Right Lighter
Lighting the cigar in a “three-club” wind can be difficult make sure you bring along a good torch type lighter that will do the trick.

Cigar Holder
Tossing your cigar down on the grass while you hit your tee shot, not the best idea considering the different fertilizers golf courses use. So finding the right holder is important. I’ve used a DivPro that works pretty good out on the course.



Transporting Cigars
So you want to make sure your cigars are protected from damage, especially if you’re carrying your clubs so a sturdy container is a must. A Tupperware or glass container or any other durable carrying case will work perfectly.

Don’t Bring Your Best
Odds are after hitting your drive into the trees or chatting with friends on the course you may end of leaving your cigar just about anywhere. Be sure to bring cigars you won’t be upset about leaving behind.

Bring a Cutter
Pick up an inexpensive cutter to keep in your golf bag and it will save you a lot of headaches. Plus it might make you a few friends along the way.


So do you have any more etiquette/ rules for the golf course?
