TRUE Linkswear launches MS Knit for multiple sclerosis

Published

on

Golf has one of the largest charitable impacts of any sport on both a professional and recreational level. From The First Tee program to local charity golf tournaments, in 2016 the amount raised was $3.9 billion (with a “B”) dollars.

Helping add to that number one pair at a time, TRUE Linkwear has just launched the MS Knit — a fresh take on their popular and very comfy Knit — to directly give back to the National Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Society to the tune of $30 a pair. The colors and design of the shoe were a direct collaboration with the Greater Northwest Chapter of the MS Society to help bring more awareness to a disease that affects more the 2.3 million people worldwide each year. TRUE has also committed to participating in the South Sound MS Walk in Tacoma Washington along with being the local presenting sponsor.

 

In talking to TRUE President Jason Moore — yes, the brother to PGA Tour Player Ryan Moore, the company wanted to put a stake in the ground by offering an exact dollar amount per pair sold of the MS Knit, not a percentage of sales littered in a fine print.

 

The MS Knits are currently available for pre-sale now, but with or without purchase you can donate to the MS Society through the TRUE team here.

WRX Spotlight: 2UNDR performance underwear

Published

on

Product: 2UNDR performance underwear

Pitch: From 2UNDR: “Inspired by the kangaroo-pouch, we set out to create a high performance men’s athletic underwear, with the versatility of everyday use. Using the most advanced construction techniques and materials, we were able to separate your equipment from your body to reduce unwanted skin-on-skin contact. With more support than a standard brief and improved airflow to keep you cool, the 2UNDR™ products provide the best fit, comfort and style a man could ever need.”

Our take on 2UNDR underwear

There was a lot of big news made this year when Rickie, you know THE Rickie on tour, changed balls, switching to the all-new TaylorMade TP5, and winning only a few events later. BUT another switch for Rickie this year flew way under the radar…and under his fitted Puma pants. It had everything to do with balls, but nothing to with urethane or five layers: I’m talking his 2UNDR Performance Underwear.

From desk jockeys to runners, and everything in between (including golfers) we all want down there comfort. With 2UNDR you get exactly that, thanks to their JoeyPouch technology, which keeps everything together yet spaciously separated for comfort and moisture wicking. I know it seems silly, but speaking from experience: after switching to 2UNDR over six years ago, I have never looked back to the days of plain old cotton, for both day to day and especially on course.

There is a lot of technology packed into each pair of 2UNDR. That, along with some serious attention to detail, make sure you are comfy all day long. The tech in each pair of 2UNDRs includes a reinforced and roll-resistant waistband, precisely placed seems around the garment to prevent any “rub zones,” and, of course, the patented JoeyPouch to keep the precious goods (OK, fine I’ll just say it, we’re all adults: testicles) right where they should be.

For the sake of argument I think having used a product for more than 6 years puts this into the category of “long-term review,” and from this 2UNDR loyalist I have nothing but glowing things to say. The durability I have experienced from the many pairs I have has been excellent, and I take ZERO special care of these; washer and dryer every time and they are the same fit and comfort wear after wear, including a nice fit around the thigh where undies usually lose shape the quickest. The only complaint I could have had was tweaked a few years ago from their first iteration which had the tag on the front sewn on in a little patch. It it now built right into the waistband so it has zero chance of ever falling off.

On the course for me is where these stand out. I’m a Swing Shift user and can’t begin to tell you how many times on a hot summer day my 2UNDRs make that last walk up the 18th hole just a comfy as walking off the first tee four hours earlier. To be real frank they hold everything in place and eliminate the need for that layer of baby powder that you may be used to applying with traditional boxers. The waistband never bunches, even with a shirt tucked in with a belt, which might seem like a small thing but with all the twisting and bending we do as golfers around our midsection, even if you are a cart rider, gives you one less thing to worry about.

Speaking of worrying, just like with so many things with not just golf, but in life, its often the small details that can make or break any product — the expensive shoes that just rub your heel the wrong way, the hat that doesn’t sit “just right,” the location of the second button on a dress shirt (please do yourself a favor and watch Seinfeld if you don’t get that reference). It’s only the things we never think about that are really the most comfortable; like your favorite pair of jeans, or in my case wearing anything but 2UNDR Swing Shifts. The only thing you’ll have to think about is which colors or patterns to choose — there are A LOT!!!

I don’t really say this about too many products, but if aren’t wearing 2UNDR undies, you might need to seriously take a look in the mirror and evaluate your underpants situation. You can find 2UNDR available at most golf shops that know what’s up, or online through their website.

Tommy Armour launches new Atomic line, featuring woods, hybrids, and irons

Published

on

Tommy Armour has launched its latest club lineup – Atomic, which includes woods, hybrids, and irons, and all of which feature a DAT 55 titanium cup face. The material is 25 percent stronger than standard titanium in an aim to produce higher ball speeds for longer distance.

Tommy Armour Atomic driver, hybrids, fairways

 

The new driver and hybrids from the company contain a 40 percent larger carbon crown, which allows for 10 grams of discretionary weight, which is repositioned to increase MOI and forgiveness.

According to Tommy Armour, the 360-degree aerodynamic design lowers turbulence by 20 percent at the crown, thus improving clubhead efficiency. The combination of a cup face design, with high strength DAT 55 beta titanium, has helped lead to a larger, thinner, and faster face than its predecessors.

The Atomic driver is available in both right-handed (9 and 10.5 degrees) and left-handed (10.5 degrees) options and costs $399.99. The Atomic fairway wood and hybrid also arrive in both left and right-handed options and cost $249.99 and $229.99 respectively.

Atomic, Atomic Max irons

The Atomic and Atomic Max irons from Tommy Armour feature a face which is 60 percent lighter than steel. 60 grams of tungsten of discretionary weight has been designed into the sole of the clubs in order to move the CG lower and more towards the toe of the irons in a bid to provide players with added forgiveness.

 

The titanium cup face is brazed to the body of the club in a design, which bids to produce faster ball speeds while saving weight to improve forgiveness.

The Atomic Max set arrives in a choice of both steel and graphite options and are available in both right and left-handed options too. The Atomic irons and Atomic Max irons cost $799.99.

The new additions from Tommy Armour are available to purchase now exclusively at DICK’S Sporting Goods and Golf Galaxy stores nationwide.
