Old Update…..

Rory McIlroy switches to Callaway woods and irons, Titleist ball and wedges, Odyssey putter”

According to a report from NoLayingUp.com, McIlroy is switching to Callaway woods (the new GBB Epic Sub Zero) and irons (Apex MB), an Odyssey putter and Titleist ball (Pro V1x) and wedges (Titleist Vokey).

“I want to play the new ProV1x ball and I know the Callaway driver works the best with it,” McIlroy told the site. “I also know my Nike irons don’t work as well with the Titleist ball because of the groove format. Too spinny, and a loss of distance.” GolfDigest

Rory Mcilroy New ClubsRumours are circulation that McIlroy will switch to Titleist, Rich Beam commented on the situation and it seems like the other pro’s have known for a while, he told NewsTalk that Rory had a new scotty cameron putter with a similar design to the limited edition putter used by Rory before signing with Nike, but he couldn’t use it due to his commitments to Nike.

Beem said

“Rory had a gleam in his eye while showing me the new putter, exactly the same putter he used to win the US Open. He looked like a little kid who wanted to run out on the green and start putting with it but couldn’t because of his contact with Nike… I felt sorry for him”

Is Rory looking forward to the smooth putting that the classic Scotty Cameron gives? and Could this be the turning point for Rory’s putting game?

 

Another theory is that he has chosen to follow in the footsteps of Charl Schwartzel and go with revolutionary golf brand Parsons Xtreme Golf (PXG).  See Rorys latest tweet below….

 

 

 

Judging from the video, we think he should go back to playing with his plastic kids set.

Nine holes play along the cliff tops, and all eighteen holes provide stunning ocean views.

British Open Infographic | 5 amazing facts you didn’t know!

Info Golf

The Open Championship has been held at Troon on eight occasions. Six of the eight times it has been won by an American. Including Arnold Palmer in 1962 and Tom Watson in 1982. Get those bets on!

Harry Vardon (above), famously known as the inventor of the Vardon or overlapping grip — the most commonly used in golf today — holds the record for most British Open wins with six (1896, 1898, 1899, 1903, 1911, 1914).

The oldest winner of the British Open is “Old” Tom Morris (left), who was 46 when he won in 1867. The youngest was his son, “Young” Tom Morris (right), who was 17 when he won the following year.

Gary Player won the British open in 1959, ’68, and ’74 (above) — making him the only golfer in the 20th century to win the Open in three different decades.

Royal Troon is home to the shortest hole in Open Championship golf. Regarded as one of the top holes in the world, the par-3 8th hole (“Postage Stamp”) measures a scant 123 yards (112 m), but its diminutive green measures a mere 420 square feet (39 m2).

How to improve golf game at home? | The quickest way to lower your score

Technology has been a part of the game of golf for quite some time now. Well always really, since the first clubs were made they were considered high tech in their day! So inherently there has been a lot of forward thinking and innovation in the game.

How to improve golf game at home!

Everything from swing aids to golf ball finders. All of which try to improve the average golfers game, and do.

However one of the biggest problems for golfers is not knowing their way around the course or not being familiar with it….especially when traveling to play.

Course management is one of the most neglected aspects of a golfer’s game.

Most players concentrate on hitting the ball well, but forget that the purpose of the game of golf is to ultimately attain the lowest possible score, not to show off perfect shots on every single stroke.

In other words, depending on the course and the hole you are about to play, it is sometimes safer (and wiser) to play for a bogey than trying to go for a one in a million shot. This ability to always play the right shot at the right time is what makes a successful golfer.

At last, there is a solution to this problem, which could dramatically reduce your score. How to improve golf game at home? …..with the GolfBirdie App.

For top level golfers and pros, the usual practice is to visit a course a few days before a competition and play a practice round.

Speaking from my experience playing at a high level we used to play two even three balls on each hole because we didn’t know where the best position was until we played the hole.

With GolfBirdie, you can use the HD Drone videos in a practice round to eliminate this and allow you to concentrate on your yardages and other info.
