New golf shoes from OGIO
Are you enjoying your summer? After a brutal winter simple pleasures like golf on a summer day are even more enjoyable. With that in mind it’s as good a time as ever to upgrade your golf wardrobe and gear, and golf shoes from OGIO are a great place to start.
We checked out a new pair of the Race Spiked Shoes from OGIO. We tried the white pair pictured above and right away we were very happy with the design. The look of the shoe is fresh, but it’s also classy and will make you feel at home in any setting including a high-end country club atmosphere.
Stability was very important in the design, so the shoe is built on a balanced frame where weight, support and traction are maximized to improve your stability. OGIO says the Race shoe draws its inspiration from OGIO’s heritage in adrenaline sports, with the goal of embodying the ideal blend of a fast look, custom fit comfort and performance. We were impressed with the feel of the leather and OGIO’s ‘Synkfit’ insole. This is an internal stabilizing system that minimizes the movement of your foot inside the shoe, therefore maximizing the transfer of energy into the golf ball. OGIO also features its Clymate Control, one way ventilation system that allows heat to escape from the shoe and prevents one’s foot from overheating. The idea is to make you comfortable on these hot summer days!
The golf shoes are also waterproof which you would expect from premium golf shoes. Check them out and you’ll hit the links in style.
Great golf and beautiful models at Links and Laces Golf Tour
What can be better than a golf getaway and a beautiful resort? Add in beautiful models and great parties and you have an unforgettable experience like the Links and Laces Golf Tour.
We were very happy to be on location at the Fantasy Springs golf resort for the Links and Laces event recently. We knew we were in for a great weekend right away at the kickoff party, with tons of beautiful models on hand with the golfers as they geared up for a fun weekend. We put together this slideshow of photos with some highlights from the weekend.
The golf course is beautiful as you can see from the photos, and on a hot day golfers were greeted at every hole by lovely models with refreshments. Sponsors like Sunbuddy Suncreen were on hand to provide their all-natural products to protect everyone from the desert sun. We also met the ladies from Haute Shot Golf who gave the guys some great gift ideas with their brand of rockin’ golf skorts for women.
After the first day of golfing, everyone was able to let loose at the superhero party held by the pool, which was a cosplay bonanza with beautiful models and the golfers dressing up as their favorite superhero. We saw many sexy outfits from the models as you can see from this slideshow we posted after the event, and you can also check out the gallery posted on the Links and Laces website.
The pool party and bikini contest the next day was also a blast, as each of the models were able to show off in their favorite bikinis while the music thumped at this afternoon party. It must of been difficult for the judges to pick the ten finalists and the ultimate winner as there were so many great models at this event.
That evening, the models got to put on a real show at the lingerie party where we saw some amazing outfits featuring thigh-high stockings, bustiers and plenty of lacy lingerie. Everyone had a great time partying the night away.
We've covered many events like this over the years, but this event stood out as one where everyone was having a great time all weekend long. It's a true getaway, and any guy who likes golf and enjoys hanging out with beautiful models should check out one of the Links and Laces events. Events are held all over the country throughout the year so you have many options to fit this into your schedule. You can also follow them on Facebook and Twitter to see what you're missing.

They’ve pre-selected eight highlights to choose from (including Tiger Woods’ 2008 win at Torrey Pines despite a broken leg), so be sure to check out the survey before June 6th and make your voice count.
Great day in Vegas at Michael Jordan Celebrity Invitational
Michael Jordan was in his element, chewing on a cigar and hanging out with his celebrity pals on the stunning Shadow Creek golf course for the 11th Annual Michael Jordan Celebrity Invitational (MJCI). I was parked next the tee box on the 18th hole to get some photos as MJ and his entourage pulled up in their carts with music in the background. Everyone at the tournament was having a great time, but Jordan was top dog as usual.
I was in my element as well, enjoying a blowout weekend at the Aria Resort & Casino and hanging out on a beautiful day in the desert as I nursed a hangover from the previous night’s debauchery. As you can see from the slideshow above I had a great view as celebrities from Brandi Chastain, Aaron Rodgers, John Smoltz, Ken Griffey, Jr. and Roger Clemens blasted drives from the 18th tee. A good time was being had by all and the celebs happily mingled with the fans near the tee box.
Brandi Chastain and John Smoltz were in the lead following Saturday’s first round of the celeb-only scramble after shooting a six-under par 66. Hall of Fame broadcaster Ahmad Rashad, and teammate and former baseball all-star Roger Clemens, were two strokes back at 4-under. Clemons hit a monster drive on 18. The two-person, 36-hole celebrity-only scramble continues today with winners to be announced at 3 p.m. The winning celebs each will take home $20,000 for their designated charities. It would have been fun to bet a celebrity tournament link this at a site like bwin.

The course at Shadow Creek was simply stunning, and it has to be on your list if you’re a golfer heading to Las Vegas. It’s amazing to pull up to this oasis in the middle of the Nevada desert. With the mountains in the background as you can see from the photo above, the beauty of this course ranks up there with some of the best I’ve seen.
Check back later this week for more details from my stay at Aria, where the restaurants, nightlife and amenities give you everything you’ll need for a Vegas getaway with your gal or your friends.

Heading to Las Vegas to cover Michael Jordan Celebrity Invitational golf tourament
We’ll use any excuse to hit Las Vegas, but covering the Michael Jordan Celebrity Invitational (MJCI) definitely qualifies as a trip we’re excited about. This 11th annual charity golf tournament will feature stars like NFL MVP Aaron Rodgers along with Ken Griffey, Jr., Wayne Gretzky, Roger Clemens, Brian Baumgartner, Brett Hull, Maury Povich and Chris Chelios. I’ll be reporting through the weekend here on the blog and you can also follow us on Twitter for photos and updates. I’ll also be staying at the incredible Aria Resort & Casino so this is shaping up to be a great weekend!
It’s also for a number of great causes, as this is a charity golf tournament. Proceeds from the charitable tournament will benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation, UC San Diego Nevada Cancer Institute, James R. Jordan Foundation, Opportunity Village and Cats Care, the NBA’s Charlotte Bobcats’ charity arm. Since its inception in 2001, MJCI has raised more than $6 million for charity.
The tournament is being held at the incredible Shadow Creek golf course, which is opening to the public for only the second time with this tournament. I’m looking forward to getting some great photos.

With the golf tournament with MJ and then the Final Four semi-finals on Saturday night, this should shape us as quite a weekend. I also get to enjoy all the amenities at the Aria and will also see the Cirque du Soleil Viva ELVIS show which should be incredible. I saw the Love show featuring music from The Beatles last year so I’m definitely looking forward to this Elvis show!
