Away From the Golf Course: Create a Practice Plan in the Privacy of Your Own Home

It’s every golfer’s dream to spend each day on the greens, but those who can’t make daily trips due to price, weather, or life responsibilities, assume the hunched position at home, practicing with whiffle balls, nets, and electronic devices while daydreaming about making outdoor rounds.

Whiffle Balls

Golfers use the balls indoors for putting practice. Being incredibly light, the balls attract wind resistance, so one can hit at full speed.

Golf Nets

Taking a full swing in a small yard is no good, so a number of avid golfers buy nets. That way, they can swing away without worrying about affecting those around them or losing balls. Nets come in a variety of sizes and shapes, with some that look more like baseball cages, allowing golfers to take notice of ball trajectory.

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.

Lexus wants to know your favorite U.S. Open golf moment

Golf is about always pursuing perfection, and Lexus and the United States Golf Association (USGA) share that goal. For the past seven years, Lexus has been the official vehicle of the U.S. Open Championship, and throughout this year’s tournament, the premium car maker will provide over 400 courtesy vehicles to players, USGA professionals and associates.

In anticipation of the 2014 Championship, Lexus is asking golf fans to vote on their favorite moment in U.S. Open history. 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.

  

2014 US Masters preview

The US Masters, golf’s quirky showpiece event begins on April 10th at the Augusta National Golf Club, its home since 1934.

It is the 80th year the course has been the home of The Masters, but this is the 78th edition as World War II caused a halt on play from 1943-45.

But this year something will be different, as Tiger Woods will miss the first Masters tournament in his career, dealing another blow in his quest to catch Jack Nicklaus for the most majors in a career.

But even without Tiger Woods, this 78th edition could be a vintage affair with the field that still includes a who’s who of past champions, current top players and impressive amateurs.

The amateurs receive their places as top two of the US Amateur Championship and winners of the British Amateur, US Mid-Amateur, Asia Pacific Amateur and US Amateur Public links.

The big gun

No doubt those qualifying in this way for the Masters will be happy just to get around the famed course without any huge embarrassments, but for the top golfers that will never be enough.

Without Tiger in the mix, the current US Masters 2014 favourites, according to Coral, are Adam Scott and Rory McIlroy.

Both players are priced at 8/1 and for a simple reason; they are two of the finest golfers in the world and they will have high expectations for themselves at Augusta.

Woods is currently agonisingly stuck on 14 major golf tournament wins, four behind the legendary Jack Nicklaus who holds the record of 18 major wins.

The 38-year-old last won a major in 2008 and since his personal issues arose in 2009 he has not looked quite like the player he was.

If he was healthy, the Californian couldn’t be discounted and he was an 8-1 pick to win the tournament before the injury. He is one of the finest golfers of all-time, and undoubtedly the best of his generation.

McIlroy is a little more complex than Woods, as the Northern Irishman has gone through a rough patch of form in the past few months.

Some of this could be attributed to a change in clubs while his high-profile relationship with tennis star Caroline Wozniacki seems to have had an adverse reaction on his profession.

The 24-year old has already won two majors at the US Open and the PGA Championship, but McIlroy will be itching to get many more majors given his superb skillset.

Defending champion Adam Scott seems to be in the mix in every major tournament, and with Woods out he has a real opportunity here to win back-to-back green jackets.

The dark horse contenders

Behind McIlroy in the betting are Phil Mickelson, Dustin Johnson and Jason Day.

At bigger prices these players will still need to be taken seriously. James Day played his part last year with Adam Scott in an epic last day battle for the green jacket just 12 months ago.

Even though Tiger Woods isn’t the same player, losing him opens things up considerably for other golfers. Some of the star power is gone from this year’s Masters, but we still may have a tournament to remember.
