Winning Footwear: Xander Schauffele’s Adidas Tour360 22 golf shoes at the Travelers Championship

Published

on

Xander Schauffele capitalized on Sahith Theegala’s 72nd-hole misfortune at the 2022 Travelers Championship. X cozied a wedge approach next to the pin and rolled in a 3-footer for a two-stroke victory.

On his feet at TPC River Highlands: Adidas Tour360 22 golf shoes.

The most recent incarnation of the Three Stripes’ flagship tour shoe is available in seven colorways. Schauffele looked to be sporting the Cloud White/Cloud White/Silver Metallic in Connecticut.

An upper made in part with recycled materials is joined with Adidas’ Boost midsole for energy return and enhanced comfort. The compay also touts its 360Wrap design for support, which works in tandem with the Insite sockliner for comfort and balance. A very spike intensive Spikemore traction system sees six twist-in spike on the TPU sole of the shoe in a bid for maximum traction.

Adidas Tour360 golf shoes retail for $210.

    What do you do if the spikes wear or break off?

    Unless the Tour Shoes are different then retail, the spikes are NON-REPLACABLE.

    Non Starter for us that have to pay for our shoes….

    That was a gift. Xander should thank Theegala.

Imprisoned Masters champ to face second trial for ‘gender violence’

Published

on

As first reported by CBA24n, Angel Cabrera is set to stand trial once again this December.

The 2009 Masters champion was charged with threatening, assaulting and harassing former partner Cecilia Torres Mana in July of 2021 and is currently serving two years in Argentina for his conviction.

Since that case has concluded, there have been more allegations against the 52-year-old. Torres Mana is claiming that Cabrera had violated his restraining order against her on “multiple occasions.”

Now, a second accuser, Micaela Teresa Escudero, is claiming that she faced “coercion,” “coercion and threat” and “minor injuries” from Cabrera as well.

The former golfer is serving his time at Carcel de Bouwer, which is an infamous prison known as “El Penal del Infierno” or the “Prison of Hell.”

The trial is set to begin on December 1.

Checking out how DAPCEP, PXG teach science and engineering through golf

Published

on

We all know that the PGA Tour is all about giving back to communities. Most of us don’t get to see where that money, time, and resources go, but I was invited by PXG to witness firsthand just one of the many programs. DAPCEP is a nonprofit organization in Detroit that offers students that ability to further their studies in fields they are interested in. PXG and DAPCEP joined forces during the Rocket Mortgage Classic to let students who are interesting in science, physics, and engineering to learn more about those subject through the game of golf.

CAPCEP students’ eyes were wide as they took in all of the golf equipment, putting greens, and fitting bays around the store. The first few minutes were filled with exploring the location and taking in everything it had to offer.

The morning was kicked off with introductions and PXG explaining how they are an engineering company that makes golf clubs. The first speaker was Caleb Kroloff, Senior R&D Engineer at PXG, and he talked a little about his path to becoming and engineer and why he loved the field so much. His mention of heading to college with no clear plan of what he would do for a career hit home with many of the students. Caleb also talked about how you can chase and research careers in passions or interests that you might have. He gave examples like looking at different sports and how someone has to design the materials and components that go into sports equipment. Engineering and problem solving are areas that have endless opportunities, if you just look a little deeper.

PXG had set up a few stations in the store that focuses on different educational subjects that required math and physics. Inside one of the fitting bays was a station that focused on full shot ball and clubbed speeds. Smash factor was not a term that any of these students were familiar with, but the math to calculate it was easy to learn. It was fun to see these young minds start asking questions about golf shots and how different variables affected the flight.

The next station focused on putting and the physics that face angle and speed had on putts. This station also allowed the students to try their hand at putting, while getting tips on how to hold a putter and getting to design their own alignment markings. The final station was built to show how C.O.R. was tested and calculated to ensure correct energy transfer off the face of a club. This again took a foreign concept and made it an easy problem to solve through math.

After the STEM learning at PXG all of the students went down to the Rocket Mortgage Classic at the Detroit Country Club to watch the Wednesday practice round from the VIP box behind the 18th green. Not only did the students get a VIP tour of the PXG tour truck, they also got to meet a few celebrities as well. Hall of Fame running back Barry Sanders and tour player Cameron Tringale both stopped by to meet these students and talk about education and opportunity. Out on the course major winner Zach Johnson stepped under the ropes to greet and take photos with these students.

By the end of the day you could see that some of the students really had grown and appreciation for the game of golf. So many also had their minds open to new goals and opportunities to chase. It was a great day to take it all in and enjoy seeing just a small amount of what partnerships like DAPCEP and PXG can do in communities across the country.
