Lamkin UTx Wrap – All Blue – Grips0

I've been struggling to sit here and come up with what to write in this review, I mean it's about a grip how exciting can it be right? Well if you try to play golf in the definition of Humidity, a Maryland Summer, you know all to well how important a good grip is to your golf game. So when I had the opportunity to try out the new UTx Wrap Golf Grips by Lamkin, I jumped at the opportunity. Most recommendations you find will say to change your grips once a year, but in the humid Maryland summer's I change my grips once in the spring and once in late summer, so when the Lamkin UTx Wrap's arrived in early August it was perfect timing. Golfing in humid weather if you haven't done it, is a challenge to say the least; having wet grips from rain is one thing, but when your hands start sweating from humidity most grips I've tried become slick and I feel like I lose all control of the club.

TRUE linkswear – Game Changer Pro0

edwinwatts.liquifire.com Anyone who has read this blog knows that besides for testing purposes of other products, when you see me on the course you will see me in a pair of TRUE linkswear golf shoes. I have two pair of oxford's that I wear to work and then directly to the course on a weekly basis, a pair of wingtips (now called classixs) and two older Lyt Dry's that I still wear three years later and they are as comfortable as ever. So when TRUE sent over a pair of Motions and The Game Changer Pro to test, I was very excited to hit the course. Generally the only time you would see me in another pair of shoes (when it wasn't for testing purposes) is if I am playing in wet conditions, because until now the TRUE's were spikeless and sometimes I needed the extra grip but now with the Game Changer Pro, I don't know if I'll ever wear another pair of shoes on the course again.Check Out the Full Review Here

Garb Inc – Clothing for Young People0

bristol-Girls-polo-shirt_grande One of the biggest inquiries we receive at Average Guy Golf is our thoughts on Junior equipment or products for kids, a lot of our readers love taking their little ones out to the course with them as much as I love taking my daughter Taylor. If you follow us on social media, you have seen Taylor on the course with me and she enjoys every second of it; however it was always hard to dress her like she belonged on the golf course because you just don't find golf polo's for girls at every store. So when I heard about Garb Inc, I reached out to their Marketing Manager Tyler Silvia and he was happy to send over some products to test out, and believe me a three year old who never sits down can test out clothing very quickly.Check Out the Full Review Here

FootJoy – HyperFlex0

fj_51007 (2) Normally we start a review with an overview of the company before getting into a review of the product, however if you haven't heard of FootJoy you probably shouldn't be on the golf course to being with. If you close your eyes and someone mentions FootJoy to you, if you are like me, in your mind you are picturing a traditional saddle style shoe. Anyone growing up golfing has surely owned a pair of saddle styled FootJoy's and loved the comfort, in recent years FootJoy like many other companies has broke away from only offering that style and has really pushed the limits on golf shoes. FJ is now offering golf shoes in all shapes and styles, from loafers, to tennis shoes, to sandals; however until the Hyperflex all of these have been spikeless models. The Hyperflex is a tennis shoe styled spiked shoe designed for both comfort and ultimate traction on the golf course.Check Out the Full Review Here

Imperial Headwear – Coolcore Hats0

WeVMwsaR3dKWt6TZH9_6LYoDQYZ419nsPqiE3XOhs0w I thought hard about how to write this review, I mean how to do you write an entire post about a hat? However the technology behind the hat had to be posted and I think it is a break through in headwear on and off the course. There are two aspects here first the brand Imperial and their partnership with Coolcore to provide some of the most comfortable headwear on the course. The below information is taking directly from a Imperial Headwear press release, but instead of rewriting it and getting info wrong on their partnership it explains it perfectly.

NexBelt – The Future Is Here0

patriot Owners Eddie, Tom and Francis had a simple idea, make a belt that fit and supported someone correctly, while still being stylish, comfortable and made of quality products. It's impossible to go over every design (both buckle and belt), type of belt (leather, canvas etc) and color that Nexbelt makes as the possibilities are endless, the real focal point should be on their technology. People gain and lose weight daily and a normal belt doesn't allow for this variance in even the slightest weight fluctuation, on a so called normal belt the holes in the belt are generally placed 1" apart, have you ever noticed one day your belt may feel tight and the next day slightly loose, where you wish you could tighten it a little, but can't tighten it all the way to the next belt hole? Well with the NexBelt instead of making the standard 1" adjustments you can make a simple 1/4" adjustment with out ever having to unhook and re-hook your belt. NexBelt uses a ratcheting system that is sewn into the belt instead of belt holes to hold the belt in place, you simply pull it to click it one adjustment tighter or hit the release button to allow it to loosen one click, this makes for unbelievable fitness in a belt which I never knew was an issue until trying a NexBelt. Some shirts are different thicknesses, sometimes you wear an undershirt, sometimes you don't tuck your shirt at all, a normal belt doesn't allow for any of these factors and your belt could feel tight or loose depending on the day; however with the Nexbelt no matter how you are dressed your belt is going to fit perfectly.Check Out the Full Review Here

Kankura Golf – Scottsdale 30

scottsdale3 I am willing to bet Kankura is a brand of golf shoe that you have not heard of, I hadn't heard of them until about a month ago when I was reading a golf digest article on the top shoes of 2015, and saw a pair of shoes that I fell in love with. That pair was the Scottsdale 3 in white by Kankura golf, so I hit the google machine to try and find out more about this company. Kankura is a company out of Portugal that makes high quality leather golf shoes, on first visit to the site you have find it is in Portuguese, but can be translated to English; some parts of the site translate better than others but what you gather from the site is a company that puts quality, style and comfort at the forefront of their shoe designs.Check Out the Full Review Here

PhotoBallMarker.com0

Capture PhotoBallMarker.com is a site that well, offers Ball Markers with custom photos on it, as if you couldn't guess that from the web address. You can get a ball marker in a 3 piece set, 5 piece set, on a necklace or even on a divot tool or any combination of those, I went with the 5 piece ball market set with a pocket/belt magnetic clip and one large pocket ball marker (see picture above), all the pictures on mine are of my daughter on the golf course; can you tell I am proud to call that beautiful little girl my daughter? All joking aside I never thought much of the importance of a Ball Marker, I threw something down for the 30 seconds it took to pick up my ball clean it off and line up the putt, however since receiving these, if you put a picture that means something to you there is a weird sense of calm that passes over you as you line up your putt after seeing that picture. Now I am thinking of happy times I spend on the course with my little girl rather than 10 swing thoughts about my putting stroke.Check Out the Full Review Here

Making Bunker Play Easy0

Capture If you’ve ever watched golf on television, I can almost guarantee you’ve heard one of golf broadcasting’s favorite phrases, “He was sure lucky to have found the greenside bunker!” But wait, I thought bunkers were supposed to be a penalty? I’m sure many of you have wondered how the Tour players can make it look so easy when most amateurs are happy just to get the ball on the green from the bunker. So why are bunkers so daunting to many recreational golfers?Check Out the Full Review Here

Antigua – 2015 Men’s Spring Collection0

100995-045_M-Linear It seems Antigua has been around as long as the game of golf has, if you've ever played or watched golf on TV chances are you've seen the Antigua logo. While Antigua is not a heavily advertised apparel company like Nike, Puma or Under Armour they have been making quality and stylish golf apparel longer then the previously mentioned companies have even been in business. With the 2015 Spring Collection Antigua brought much brighter colors into the mix than in previous years, making them not only some of the most comfortable golf polo's we have worn but now competing in the style category with any apparel company you can find.

Devereux’s Spring 2015 Christina O Collection0

argo In 2013 Robert and Will Brunner went looking for a style that would bridge the gap between today's modern styles and the progressive styles worn by the legends of the game like Arnie, Hogan and Palmer. When they couldn't find anything they were looking for they launched Devereux in 2013, adding a much needed simple yet sophisticated look to the game of golf. Being from the Eastern Shore of Maryland, I can easily see Devereux's line of golf attire being worn on the sailboats that fill the Chesapeake Bay on a sunny day, in my office and on the golf course. Their line of clothes is designed to make you look as great as you feel in one of their shirts.Check Out the Full Review Here

Mattaponi Springs Golf Club: Worth the Drive – By Beltway Golfer0

Mattaponi-17-300x139 If Mattaponi Springs were an hour closer to DC, a weekend tee time would be a pretty tough get. The only reason this course isn’t packed every day of the week as far as I can tell, is the location. A seventy-five minute drive south from the Beltway’s mixing bowl, is a hike, and that’s without traffic. However, if you’re looking for an outstanding golf course to make a day trip to, there may not be one better from the DC area. Once you have committed to the trip, the remote location becomes a blessing as upon arrival, you will not find the hustle and bustle of many golf clubs closer to the city. I have played Mattaponi and handful of times, mostly on weekdays, but each time, pace of play, packed tee sheets, or a crowded course are the furthest things from being an issue. The site itself is awfully isolated, as the roads leading to it are thin, winding, and mostly undeveloped. On my most recent visit, a gorgeous Wednesday in October, I offered my golf partner and co-pilot an over/under of 7 cars in the parking lot when we got to Mattaponi at 10am. He took the over.. when we pulled in, we were the 5th car. I find this stunning, considering Golf Digest ranked Mattaponi Springs as the 50th best public golf course in the United States. The only explanation i can come up with is the location. Even for Richmond golfers, it’s a 45 minute drive north, past a number of other strong daily-fee tracks.Check Out the Full Review Here

How to Adjust for Aerated Greens0

sanded-greens-1074x483 As the weather changes and golf goes through its own seasonal changes, courses have to be maintained appropriately. This includes aerating the entire course, from tee to green. And if you’re like me, you’ve likely gotten to the first green of your home course before without realizing the grounds crew had just finished aerating and sanding the greens, presenting another obstacle to deal with during the already challenging round of golf.Check Out the Full Review Here
