French Lick: Donald Ross and Pete Dye at their finest

If the golf courses at French Lick Resort aren’t on your must-play list, adjust it. The Indiana boyhood home of NBA Hall of Famer Larry Bird also has two layouts that are turning the hoops hotbed into a golf playground as well.

Is your gear ready whatever the weather? With record temperatures and record rainfall, is your gear ready whatever the elements throw at it?

With record temperatures and record rainfall, is your gear ready whatever the elements throw at it?

Whether you͛’ve been sweating through the hottest July on record in California; swimming in the wettest July on record in Pennsylvania; or combining the two in Arizona which has had both above average temperatures and rainfall, one thing is for sure, the weather in 2018 has been far from normal.

And it͛s not just this year. Since 2015 every state in the U.S. has experienced above average annual temperatures, with a large proportion coupling that with above average rainfall. It seems the only thing we can predict at the moment is that the weather will be unpredictable!

But golf goes on. And while the changeable weather might put off a few, the rest of us are out there on all but the hottest or wettest days doing our best to enjoy the game. So what does the changing weather mean for golfers? And how can choosing the right gear help them get the best out of their game?

The unpredictability of the weather isn͛t just a challenge for golfers, syays Ralf Niesing, head designer for golf bag specialists BIG MAXX USA.

As golfers are faced with changing conditions we need to make sure that our equipment will function at its best whatever the weather.  Over the past five years our focus has been on developing the best water-proof and water-resistant bags on the market, but that can͛’t be at the expense of practicality when the sun comes out. Very few golfers have the luxury of having a wet weather set up so as designers we need to make sure that whatever conditions a golfer wakes up to, their equipment is ready to perform.  But with so many variations in the weather the Goldilocks͛ combination of equipment that is “Just Right͛” whatever the weather is a puzzle that is very hard to solve.

You have to start with the golfer and their needs, but those needs will differ depending on their location and certainly more often these days, on the way the weather is behaving. So a manufacturer͛s’ target has to be to provide the best solutions for any variations. Take for instance two Big MAXX bag lines – Dri Lite and Aqua.  Aqua is 100% waterproof with sealed seams and waterproof zippers. It has a hydrostatic rating of 10,000 meaning 10,000mm of rain can fall on it in 24 hours and it will stay dry inside. Dri Lite has all of those features without the seam sealing, so it carries a rating of 2000. In most situations our Dri Lite bags will keep out average rainfall, but if you are likely to be playing courses in areas prone to downpours, like Bandon Dunes, I͛’d suggest the Aqua every time.

“If you are in an area where you get occasional rain or if you want to be protected just in case, then Dri-Lite is the line for you,” Niesing said.  “So we have two lines that lead the field in waterproof technology, but we don͛t want to be the waterproof bag͛ company. To make sure of that, we have to think about practicality in hot weather that doesn͛t compromise our wet weather performance. So we take care to pick materials which can resist extreme temperatures and remain durable under the stress of the heat.”

This goes for BIG MAXX colours too. Their bright European styling is one of our most recognisable design points so they have to work out ways that minimise fading in direct sunlight. Out of these different needs BIG MAXX developed a unique waterproof material that is incredibly lightweight, durable in rain and sunshine, washable if it gets muddy or dusty and keeps its colour whatever the weather.͞

“They say that necessity is the mother of invention and I do truly believe that we as manufacturers will have to accomodate climate fluctuations more and more in our designs over the coming years. The trends are there to see, so if we want to continue in our aim of making a golfers life on the course easier and more enjoyable we have to be increasingly creative in our solutions to the problems that they face,” Niesing said. “So far I think we have done a great job at BIG MAX but rest assured, we͛’re already working on the next generation of products that are led by golfers’ needs and among the leading manufacturers I don͛t think we͛’ll be alone in thinking that climate will be an important part of those next steps.”

BIG MAX Launches Award Winning Golf Bag Line in U.S. #1 European golf bag brand, BIG MAX launch includes AQUA and DRI LITE technology

BIG MAX, Europe’s most owned Push Cart brand and #1 European Golf Bag brand, is launching its award winning technology to the U.S. market. With five great looking designs across two award winning technologies – AQUA and DRI LITE – BIG MAX golf bags are set to make a huge impact when they arrive at retail this June.

The technology underpinning the AQUA line is the new DROP STOP system that guarantees the bags are 100% waterproof. Using waterproof fabric with unprecedented waterproof rating of over 10.000mm*, sealed seams and specially designed Japanese waterproof zippers, the AQUA range delivers an unrivalled level of design and waterproofing using ultra-lightweight, tear resistant and washable materials.

DRI LITE technology delivers a washable, water resistant golf bag that is the equal of what most brands in the market call ‘Waterproof’. Most other brands would call DRI LITE waterproof, but with the time and expertise taken to ensure the AQUA range is 100% waterproof, BIG MAX are happy to call DRI LITE water resistant, knowing it will keep all but the wettest, winter days at bay.

With two award winning technologies at the heart of the construction, each bag in the series is strong, stylish, waterproof and washable. And with a range of excellent features combined with a unique, cool Euro look and feel the new BIG MAX line is the complete package.

The AQUA Sport 2 is the second generation of BIG MAX’s most successful cart bag. With a 14-way, 9.5-inch organizer top, full length dividers, 7 spacious pockets, oversize putter well for large grips and weighing in at just over 5 lbs, the Sport 2 is a leader in the field of practicality. To further enhance its waterproof capability the Sport 2 also has a clear rain hood with dual zips giving easy access from either side. A host of neat features like dual strap and umbrella positions, holders and accessory storage options finish off the practical features on this stylish new addition to the BIG MAX AQUA line.

The AQUA Wave is a stylish, lightweight, and 100% waterproof stand bag. The Wave’s 8 ½” top extends into 4 full length dividers, while its 6 waterproof pockets, air channel straps and ultra-light weight of just over 4lbs make the bag a hugely practical and colorful addition to any golfer’s gear.

The AQUA Ocean is a 100% waterproof, compact stand bag that has space to spare and weighs just 3 ¾ lbs. With an oversize top the Ocean is designed for ease of use and with 5 waterproof pockets has plenty of storage options. Practical features such as glove, towel and umbrella holder, combined with space for a full set of clubs mean this stylish bag allows golfers to travel and play without compromise.

DRI LITE Active offers practical solutions to all a golfers storage needs in a stylish, water resistant package. A 9 ½“, 14 way top and an oversize putter well to fit the largest grips will keep all a golfers clubs in order, while 9 pockets, including fully waterproof valuables pocket, glove, dual umbrella positions and towel holder will pack away even the most well equipped golfers’ gear with ease. Ultra-lightweight at well under 5 lbs and available in a range of stylish colour combinations, the DRI LITE Active looks great and delivers on the course.

DRI LITE G is a full-size stand bag that belies its capacity with a weight of less than 4 ½ lbs. A 14-way divider separates the 9” top giving plenty of room for a full set of clubs. An air channel strap for breathability across the back enhances comfort for the carrier while leg lock enables the ‘G’ to be perfectly stable on a cart. 7 pockets along with DRI LITE technology finish off the practical features and a fantastic price make it a great buy for those carrying with a full set of gear.

*Hydrostatic testing of waterproof fabric gives a mm per 24 hours rating. This refers to the amount of rainfall a fabric can withstand in a single day. Thus, a 10,000mm waterproof rating means the garment can withstand 10,000mm of rainfall in a single day without letting moisture in.

AQUA Sport 2 – $299.99, available in Black/silver, Charcoal/Black/Red, Silver/Black/Cobalt, Red/Black/Silver, Navy/Black/Silver

AQUA Wave – $249.99 available in Black, Red, Yellow, White/Orange, Petrol

New golfers on the rise Forbes reports 2.6 million started playing according to industry report

Golf welcomed a record number of first-time players in 2017, with the 2.6 million beginners eclipsing the numbers set when Tiger Woods was in his prime and drawing a wealth of newcomers to the game around the turn of the century, Forbes magazine reported today.

The number of people who played on a golf course for the first time in 2017 increased for the fourth straight year, one in a series of positive indicators detailed in the National Golf Foundation’s Golf Industry Report. The NGF report is a comprehensive state-of-the-industry overview that compiles many of golf’s key data points in a single publication to provide a holistic view of the game.

 

The Golf Industry Report showed that golf’s on-course participant base remained stable at 23.8 million golfers last year. Included in that number are almost 20 million of the game’s most committed golfers, a segment that represents about 82% of those who play but accounts for approximately 95% of all rounds-played and spending in an $84 billion industry.

The tournament, which flights players based on age, gender and handicap, is open to all golfers 18 years of age or older. To register, go to www.MyrtleBeachWorldAmateur.com.

More than 3,000 players from across America and more than 20 countries are again expected to participate in amateur golf’s most inclusive event.

New Rules – What are they thinking? OB will carry two shot penalty

By Mike Lednovich, Editor & Publisher

The USGA has announced new rules for 2019 and wow they are doozies.

Let’s start with the double hit. The most famous double hit was T.C. Chen in the 1985 U.S. Open when he had a four shot lead over Andy North and ended up with a quad bogey and lost.

T.C. Chen’s double hit in the 1985 U.S. Open paved the way for Andy North.

This generally occurs with a wedge usually when playing a ball out of thick rough. You hit it, the ball lazily pops up and you hit it again as you follow thru. Used to be a one stroke penalty.  No, not any more. Seems you can hit it as many times as you want in one swing. No penalty at all. This will be ripe for trick shot artists.

But the dumbest is the Out of Bounds rule. The OB rule as always been the most punitive rule in golf — one stroke and distance. Stroke and distance was part of golf’s original list of rules, in 1744, but during subsequent decades and centuries it was repeatedly modified, dropped, resurrected, and modified again. Sometimes you counted only the bad stroke and the do-over; sometimes you added a penalty but got a drop. The most severe version was adopted by the Royal & Ancient Golf Club of St. Andrews in 1842: three strokes and distance, meaning that if you hit a ball out of bounds your next stroke, played from the spot where you struck your first, counted as your fifth. That lasted until 1846.

In 1959, The Southern California Golf Association railed against the USGA and implemented a one-stroke penalty from the spot where you lost the ball.

Under the new rule you no longer have to go back to the tee and hit again. You can now drop in the vicinity of where the ball crossed the out of bounds marker. But wait, it’s a two shot penalty. Are you freaking kidding me? Two shots? So I go OB, I drop and now I lie three and hitting my 4th shot — OMG! Just shoot me why don’t you?

But let me get this right. I can hit my ball twice in one swing without penalty, but if I hit it outside the white boundary markers it’s gonna cost me two shots. What is the USGA thinking? I’d be better off going back to the tee where I’m hitting my third shot with the possibility of gaining more yardage with a straight drive.

My solution is do away with out of bounds all together. Just make all boundaries a lost ball for Pete’s sake. By the way, how and who determines what areas on the course are OB and what are lost balls? Why can I hit a lost ball to the left, but it’s OB on the right?

I will give the USGA credit on the measuring in taking relief rule where some golfers got an unfair advantage by using their long putters instead of their drivers to measure their relief point. Long Putters are now out of the equation.

OK, that’s my rant on these rules. At least they got the dropping procedure right. Now it’s from knee height instead of should height. Maybe before I reach the cosmos you can merely place the ball for goodness sakes. Thankfully I’m a recreational golfer and as I tell my friends, “You know there’s no Claret Jug in the clubhouse?” That simply means follow the intention of the rules unless there’s money on the line or you’re playing for a title.

Omni violates court order, bulldozes 16th hole bunker Amelia Island Club seeks contempt charges against resort

By Mike Lednovich, Editor & Publisher

The Amelia Island Club claims The Omni Resort ignored a Nassau County Court injunction barring any further demolition of the Ocean Links Golf Course by bulldozing one of the few bunkers left intact.

The 16th hole at Ocean Links.

In court papers filed Feb. 2, The Amelia Island Club is seeking the court to hold The Omni in contempt of court and to have the resort pay a daily fine for each day until the bunker on the 16th hole is restored to its original condition.

Last Nov. 12, The Omni began an unannounced demolition of the Ocean Links Course destroying all of the greens and 90 percent of the course bunkers.

The Amelia Island Club, claiming The Omni was violating its contract with the club to provide two 18-hole championship golf courses, won a temporary injunction blocking The Omni from conducting any further demolition work.

Both parties agree in late December to the Omni putting down sod on areas that had been cleared to prevent flooding and potential hazardous areas to hotel guests.

However, the court said, “The injunction order otherwise remains in full force and effect. Omni remains enjoined from further removing holes or bunkers, or other demolishing or altering the condition of the course grounds.”

A bulldozer demolishing the 16th hole bunker from court files.

The Amelia Island Club said on Jan. 24, Omni workers had cleared debris from the bunker halfway up the right side of the 16th fairway, “thus leaving the  bunker intact and in pristine condition.”

A day later, The Club said the “Omni brought heavy equipment onto the 16th hole and leveled the bunker.”

The club provided before and after photos of the bunker in their court filing.

“The Omni then intentionally destroyed the bunker, in direct contravention of the injunction order,” the contempt motion stated.

The motion asks the court for the Omni to restore the bunker to its original condition while also paying Amelia Island Club attorney’s fees and imposing a daily fine the court deems appropriate for each day the Omni fails to complete the restoration of the bunker.

A hearing has been set for June 5 before Nassau County Court Judge Steven Fahlgren on the motion to hold The Omni in contempt.

golf8.5 – simplifying the swing in sequence Getting the 1,001 swing thoughts out of your brain

Former pro golfer and PGA instructor Kay McMahon maintains there’s a lot of bunk in golf instruction.

“You’ll watch TV and they say rotate your hips for speed. Well, if you do that you’ll swing out and across. Welcome you’re now a slicer,” she said in presenting golf8.5 to a group of writers at the Tour Edge Media Event. “If we want to grow the game, we have to change the way we’re teaching this.”

McMahon has developed golf8.5, a teaching methods that focuses on eight and half movements in the golf swing – 4 in establishing the setup and four and a half in the swing.

Her method debunks many of the established rules of instruction, like posture.

“We never teach posture. There’s no such thing. Every one establishes there own posture when they step into the ball to setup. So the posture happens automatically,” McMahon stated. “We believe effective learning begins in learning in parts. We believe you begin movements slow to fast.”

“When you follow Golf 8.5, the ‘1001 things’ that are traditionally taught happen automatically.  You no longer have to think about anything else,” she said.

So to establish the beginning, golf8.5 uses G-CAP – grip, clubhead, alignment and posture.

The swing is four and half movements – the Y formed by the arms and shoulders, creating an L on the backswing, together which form the box. From the top, the box like an elevator moves down and so on.

“It’s teaching so golfers can self correct themselves on the golf course,” she said. “These positions should never change.”
