Greg Norman introduces the Shark Experience. You won’t believe what it is.

Published

on

Greg Norman is nothing if not bold and willing to put his name on things.

Where to begin with this one? Right into the Shark-infested waters we go: The Greg Norman Company announced Wednesday the launch of something called the “Shark Experience.”

What does that name conjure up for you? Probably not this: the “Shark Experience” is a golf cart designed to revolutionize the game. Really.

Norman’s company has joined forces with the likes of Club Car and golf GPS technology firm GPSI to create the golf cart of your dreams. The Shark Experience cart features a HD-touchscreen that show live sports and highlights, streams videos and, you guessed it, plays Greg Norman instruction videos.

In addition, specially designed speakers are angled so riders can absorb the audio without disturbing those around them

Thus, the specific “experience” of the Shark Experience would seem to be watching Norman while riding in a Norman-designed contraption.

“Golfers have had little bits and pieces of this available to them with their iPhone, earbuds and bluetooth speakers. Now it’s all integrated into one,” Norman told Golf.com. “They now have all of this technology brought into one place, in a golf cart.”

Reportedly, there are also food and beverage options available and some variety of shot tracer.

“We’ve taken Top Golf from the driving range to the golf cart. We have everything they have, but now you’re on green grass,” Norman says.

The Shark Experience is slated to debut at the PGA Show in January.

What do you think, GolfWRX members? Looking forward to this Experience?

    So which Greg story gets told? The narcissist? The British Open champion? The homewrecker? The ballstriker? The ones we want in the game can do their own homework.

    This is not growing the game for the right reasons, Greg. Thanks for encouraging the social media tards to pollute our hallowed grounds even more. The mess that the Tiger bandwagon left behind was hard enough. I’m disappointed in you Greg. Very disappointed. If it’s about money, you have enough. Disappear.

    Wonder how long it will be until someone watching a live stream crashes the cart and sues Greg Norman and the golf course. Would never add this to our carts. Plus I agree it would add to Round length

    Someone will need to tell everyone under 40 who Greg Norman was.

Looks like Tiger is exploring some innovative solutions to his putting woes…

Published

on

Tiger Woods was 39th in strokes gained: putting in 2018. Historically an excellent putter, Woods was hot-and-cold with the flatstick, even benching his soulmate Scotty Cameron Newport 2.

It looks like Woods may have an ace in the hole for the upcoming season, however, with respect to his green reading and putt sinking. Check out this video posted to his Instagram from the Tiger Woods Invitational on the Monterey Peninsula earlier this week.

Good thing the USGA is restricting the use of green-reading devices and technologies, because this kid looks close to cracking the eternal mystery of the perfect marriage of line and speed for every putt.

Cool stuff, though, isn’t it? It’s also cool to see Tiger so genuinely excited about his “mentee.”

We all know the story of how, after September 11, Woods re-evaluated his charitable endeavors and began to conceive of the Tiger Woods Learning Center. He’s spoken passionately about the students who have made their way through the various programs in the past, and there’s no doubt he cares deeply about the TGR Foundation’s efforts, but seeing a thin slice of that reality is awesome.

Published

If you’re on Instagram, you’re hopefully aware that we are ‘gramming it up as well (@golfwrx). And if you’re not following us, well, that hurts our feelings more than a three-putt bogey.

Even if you do follow WRX on Instagram, however, you may not be aware that an abundance of equipment enthusiasts are hashtagging their photos #GolfWRX. We feel it’s only right to feature the best of the WRX-tagged imagery here.

And if you’re not on Instagram, well there’s no way you could see these photos, so think of this series as a handy filter for the best #GolfWRX photos from the past 24 hours.

Report: No tickets will be sold for Tiger-Phil match

Published

on

Sorry, fans, you’re not going to be able to buy tickets to the Tiger Woods-Phil Mickelson $9 million megamatch at Shadow Creek in Las Vegas, November 23.

Per a report from the Las Vegas Review-Journal, only a “small gathering of sponsors and VIPs” will be allowed on course. The report also indicates that, in contrast to Phil Mickelson’s promised primetime (ET) showdown, the match will be played under the Nevada sun. The official start time is yet to be announced, ditto the PPV price.

We corrected the promo graphic below to eliminate the crowd. But right-handed Tiger Woods swinging a left-handed club still needs fixing.

Woods is the -220 favorite at the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook. Mickelson is a +180 underdog.
