Published

on

Rickie Fowler heads to Bay Hill for the Arnold Palmer Invitational this week, and he will sport a Puma Arnold Palmer P Cap, Limited Edition Ignite Proadapt footwear, and carry a custom Cobra x Vessel Stand Bag, all of which are to honor the late Arnold Palmer and all of which will be available for the public to purchase.

A limited number of Fowler’s custom Arnold Palmer items will be available both at CobraGolf.com and at select retailers. While a small number of custom caps, stand bags and shoes, personally autographed by Fowler will be available to purchase at PumaGolf.com

100 percent of the proceeds from the sales will go towards the Arnold & Winnie Palmer Foundation.

ARNOLD PALMER IGNITE PROADAPT Shoes – $250

 

 

The Arnold Palmer Ignite shoes feature the signature Umbrella logo in a repeating pattern on the heel and interior of the shoe and also contain the King’s signature on the side of the shoe.

The shoe contains a custom pink sock liner, which is an ode to Palmer’s love of the color pink. One features the famous umbrella logo while the other features the iconic Arnie quote “I never felt like I didn’t have a chance to win.”

The shoe features a Green PUMA Formstripe, Cat logo and heel, while coloured lace tips complete the shoes look.

ARNOLD PALMER SNAPBACK CAP – $40

The hat which features the iconic umbrella-logo layered on the embroidery P is available in three different colorways – all white, white/green, and pink.

COBRA + VESSEL Tour Stand Bag

This stand bag comes in a white and green colorway, with the Umbrella Logo displayed throughout the bag. The bag features heavy-duty zippers, durable PU material and a single strap for easy carrying.

The stand bag comes in a lightweight package, weighing 60% lighter than a regular Tour Staff bag.

Those who donate as little as $10 this week to the Arnold & Winnie Palmer Foundation will be entered into a sweepstake. The winner of the sweepstake will receive a Roundtrip airfare for two, hotel accommodation, and a round of golf at the prestigious Bay Hill Club & Lodge. The winner will also get a personal tour of Mr Palmer’s office, Rickie Fowler signed custom Arnold Palmer gear and additional PUMA gear. Full detail of the sweepstake can be found here.

    Those are awesome. It’s about time these companies made their guys carry stand bags. That’s what people who buy bags use. Not staff bags! I saw earlier this year at I believe Farmers they did a bag…. sold them online for $599 and were sold out by Sunday!

    Nice looking gear but the snap-back cap is a little pricey at $40 bucks.

      Proceeds go to the Arnold and Winnie Palmer foundation… a pretty good time to splurge on a cool looking product!

What GolfWRXers are saying about the best Nike driver ever

Published

on

@ukgolfclubsales

In our forums, our members have been discussing Nike drivers. WRXer ‘DixieD’ is currently building up a Nike bag and has reached out to fellow members for driver advice, and WRXers have been sharing what they feel is the best Nike driver ever made.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • Ger21: “VR Pro LE? I have two I was still playing last year.”
  • mahonie: “The STR8-Fit Tour was one of the best drivers I’ve played. Still have it the garage and take it to the range occasionally…it would possibly still be in the bag if it hadn’t developed a ‘click’ in the head which I cannot fix. Long, straight(ish) and nice sound.”
  • jackr189: “The VR_S is one of the best.”
  • Finaus_Umbrella: “I played the Vapor Fly Pro, and still do on occasion for nostalgia sake. Sound and feel are great, but it demands a good strike.”
  • PowderedToastMan: “I enjoyed the SQ Tour back in the day, the one Tiger used forever. Do I miss it? Not at all, but it was a pretty good club for its time.”

What GolfWRXers are saying about driving irons for mid-handicappers

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing whether mid-handicappers can benefit from a driving iron. WRXer ‘jomatty’ says:

“I average about 230 off the tee on good drives. I can get a little more sometimes, but 230 is probably the average. I’m 42 years old and shoot in the mid to low 80’s. I do not get along with fairway woods very well, especially off the tee, and really don’t get enough extra length over my hybrid to consider using it aside from very rare situations on par 5’s (I’ve considered just going from driver to 19-degree hybrid and getting an extra wedge or something).”…

…and wants to know if he would be better served by a driving iron. Our members have been sharing their thoughts and suggestions.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • MtlJeff: “If you can shoot mid 80’s, you probably hit it well enough to hit a bunch of different clubs. Personally, I think hybrids are easier to hit….but some driving irons are quite forgiving. I use a G400 crossover that is very easy to hit and looks more iron-like. Something like that you might like. Be careful with some of them though because they aren’t always super forgiving, so you’d have to hit them first.”
  • HackerD: “G410 crossover is my version of a driving iron, feel like I hit it straighter than a hybrid. Just as easy to hit as a hybrid.”
  • hanginnwangin: “I shoot in the low 80s normally and in the 70s on my really good days. I have probably around the same or similar swing speed as you. I have been hitting my 4 iron off the tee on tight holes, and it’s been working pretty well so far. I hit it about 190-220. I have a 4 hybrid but just can’t hit it as consistently as the 4 iron, and it doesn’t even go much farther. I have a 5 wood which I only use for 220+ yard par 3s or wide-open fairways. Basically, it’s all personal preference and what you do best with. Everyone is going to be different. Try new stuff out and see what works. But if irons are the strongest part of your game (they are for me as well), I would give the 4 iron a shot. You can get a lot of roll out on the tee shots with it,”
  • Hellstrom: “Don’t laugh, but I bought a 17* hybrid with a senior flex shaft at a garage sale for $5, and I can hit it nice and easy and keep it in play without losing any distance. My driver SS is between 105 and 110 usually and swinging this thing feels like swinging a spaghetti noodle, but it works. I don’t have it in the bag all the time, but I do use it for certain courses. I take my 6 iron out and throw that in, so if I struggle with getting the ball off the tee, I just go to that.”
