Fitness and golf are two of my passions in life. At 31 years of age, I am at the gym 6 times a week and sometimes twice a day. I played competitive golf up till college and currently work at a pro shop / golf course in Southern California. To say I've tried everything out there to gain an edge would be an understatement. One of the great "perks" of being in the golf industry is having friends like the crew at GolfBalled asking for my opinion on new products that are right up my alley. Corey handed me the boxes of SwingOIL and said "You have to try this! It's the first drink supplement of its kind. It's specially formulated by golfers for golfers to promote flexibility and focus. Oh, and Jason Day drinks it!" What could I say except, hand it over and let me get at it!
Thank the golf gods that amateur golfers don't need to carry yardage books, pin placement sheets and have to rely on stakes and colored rocks on the fairway to gauge their distance to the flag. 3 hour rounds would turn to 5 hour rounds and golf just wouldn't be that fun anymore. So for us, having a rangefinder in the bag not only speeds up the game but allows us to know the distance to the flag. In the past, the biggest issue with rangefinders were the cost. It was hard to justify spending $300+ on a device just to get yardages. Although there were cheaper alternatives like GPS devices, I didn't like the general front - middle - back pin placement numbers. So, enter the PrecisionPro NX7 RangeFinder. Compact, accurate, easy to use, shock proof, water resistant and the best part, under $200!
How many of you golfers out there have ten different things running through your mind at set up before each shot? I know I have always had a few, but what are the most important ones? How can we remember to concentrate on just the really important ones to play well? I recently received ShoeTips and they could just be what we need to stay focused before each shot.
