GolfWRX x TRENDYGOLF USA: The hottest trends in golf footwear today – Nostalgia

Published

on

GolfWRX is and has been the destination for golf gear for some time—that is, everything that goes in your golf bag. But in addition to our best-in-the-industry coverage of club launches and what’s being played on tour, we want to bring you more info about exciting apparel and footwear trends in general and launches in particular.

The golf apparel and footwear landscape has changed massively since we launched the GolfWRX forums in 2008—long gone are the days of tent-sized polo shirts and saddle shoes as the only shows in town. To help play our way through the current course, we’re leaning on TRENDYGOLF USA, the self-professed “institution that wants to bring the latest designs from the trendiest designers around the world to the forefront of fashion, both on and off course.”

At GolfWRX, we believe the folks at TG USA are doing just that, and we couldn’t be happier to have them helping us with yardages and putt-reading, as it were.

For the first article in our series, we’re going to take a look at the dynamic and rapidly evolving world of golf footwear. TRENDYGOLF USA classifies golf footwear informally in the “nostalgia,” “functionality,” and “hype” categories.

First up, we’re taking a look at the nostalgia-inspired footwear. At once a new category in the golf footwear realm and the longest-tenured, the “nostalgia” footlocker is stocked with everything from the classic leather styles tour pros have favored for decades to footwear inspired by the iconic sneaker models of the ’80s and ’90s.

So lace ‘em up, and let’s walk this “nostalgia” landscape together!

Published

on

At GolfWRX, we love golf equipment plain and simple.

We are a community of like-minded individuals that all experience and express our enjoyment for the game in many ways. It’s that sense of community that drives day-to-day interactions in the forums on topics that range from best driver to what marker you use to mark your ball, it even allows us to share another thing – the equipment itself.

One of the best ways to enjoy equipment is to experiment and whether you are looking to buy-sell-or trade (as the name suggests) you can find almost anything in the GolfWRX BST Forum. From one-off custom Scotty Cameron Circle T putters, to iron sets, wedges, and barely hit drivers, you can find it all in our constantly updated marketplace.

These are some of the latest cool finds from the GolfWRX BST, and if you are curious about the rules to participate in the BST Forum you can check them out here: GolfWRX BST Rules

Classic simple and classy blades are only made better without chrome plating and if rust is your thing, don’t rest on this set.

Member darrickpe – TaylorMade SIM “Rocket” fairway

“Rocket” really is the best way to describe the strong-lofted TaylorMade SIM fairway wood. Whether it be off the tee or from the deck, if you catch this thing on the screws it launches rockets!

Member Puma74 – Custom Olson putter

Mamma Mia!!! This putter has everything a custom putter lover could ever want – mint condition, weld neck, lovely milled face… the only other thing you could possibly want would be to get it at a lower price, but good luck!

No tape, no solvent: New Golf Pride Concept Helix grip makes installation hassle-free

Published

on

If you have ever wanted to regrip your clubs but didn’t want to deal with the hassle of tape or solvent, Golf Pride has developed a revolutionary system to make regripping easier than ever before with the all-new Golf Pride Concept Helix.

The Concept Helix grip and the simple system used to install it removes the fear factor of installing grips and also brings a new level of accessibility to those that are looking to benefit from the performance advantage of new grips—it also requires zero drying time, meaning you can go from gripping clubs to hitting shots instantly.

To see how it works, check out the video from Golf Pride below.

Golf Pride Concept Helix grip: More details

Golf Pride’s new Concept Helix grip system uses a friction and torque-based installation method that ensures the grips are secure and are installed using a proprietary ‘horn’ device that is included with every order.

“Golf Pride stands at the forefront of innovation in grips, and Concept Helix builds on that legacy as the first-ever twist-on grip technology system. This is the first major new advanced concept to come out of the lab at our new Global Innovation Center in Pinehurst and innovates the installation process, requiring no tape, no solvent, and no drying time. Getting fresh grips on your clubs will be more seamless than ever.”
Greg Cavill – Global Project Engineer / Golf Pride

The other interesting note is that without the need for solvents or tape, the new Concept Helix grips and more environmentally friendly.

“We continue to explore new technologies that benefit golfers, both on and off the course. Concept Helix, in this regard, is this next step in the exploration of best practices for grip installation.”- Brandon Sowell, global director of sales and marketing for Golf Pride
