Sunice Announces Its Spring 2014 Outerwear Offerings0

987 Montreal, Quebec - It is an exciting year for Sunice Golf. The collection has never been so bold - a harmonious balance of style and technology. Sunice 2014 is all about colour and style. Letting the designs be more of a backdrop to highlight the technical focus of the garment and letting the colour be the leader. In ladies the colours came from one common idea - Girl Power - no wallflowers here. The colours are bold and force you to stand out amongst the crowd. Hot and bright pinks complimented with classic white and grounded to charcoal for a more commercial palette. Saturated and lush purple hues - popped with neon corals. A fresh new approach to the basic blocking of pastels that is more athletically inspired but still keeps the fashionista in mind. Lots of fun and flirty colour combos as gone are the days of muted tones - stand out and be heard is the new wave - a brave new world. Check Out the Full Review Here

Phil Mickelson – Using the TaylorMade SLDR?!0

philsldr When you think of Phil Mickelson what do you think of? I know when I think of him 4 things come to mind, Lefty, Crazy Good Short Game, KPMG and CALLAWAY. So why was Phil seen using the new TaylorMade SLDR driver last weekend at the President's cup? MyGolfSpy.com reported last year that Phil has one of the most flexible equipment contracts on the PGA tour, and that Callaway gave him their blessing to use the TaylorMade driver. So why did Phil feel the need to use the SLDR? Apparently he wanted an Ultra Low Spin driver for the set up at Muirfield Village, and Callaway is apparently in the process of producing a similar set up driver, so they have no fear of Phil switching permanently before their new driver is ready for him to use.Check Out the Full Review Here

Weekend Recap / In Case You Missed It 8/25/20130

scott The leaderboard was a crowded one on Sunday, and as the round progressed it seemed as if none of the final groups wanted to win. That was the difficulty of Liberty National finally showing its head after a few rounds of record-low scores due to some rain early in the tournament on Thursday. 54-hole leader Matt Kuchar had an especially difficult day, shooting 78 to finish T19 at five-under. His partner in the final pairing, Gary Woodland, started one-back and played only slightly better with a 73. Woodland however would finish T2 at -10, and had about a ten-foot putt for birdie on 18 that would have forced a playoff with Adam Scott. Despite the overall struggles of the final few pairings, there were several other players who went low early and set put themselves in great position for a top-five finish, and perhaps even eyeing a win. Phil Mickelson was the first to make the moves: he started Sunday nine shots behind Kuchar at (-3), and he proceeded to birdie 7 of 10 holes before bogeying the final hole and finishing at (-9).

images Wyndham Championship Patrick Reed wins first PGA Tour event in two-hole playoff Having blown a three-shot lead on the back nine, Patrick Reed (-14) defeated Jordan Spieth on the second playoff hole to earn his first PGA Tour win. It was the third straight top-10 finish for Reed, who moved up to 22nd in the FedEx Cup standings after netting 500 points for the victory. Reed almost gave the tournament to Spieth on the second playoff hole, where he sent his tee shot heading towards the trees and out of bounds. Noting that his heart sank when he was originally given the sign that his ball was indeed OB, he was about to tee up a provisional when a few people ran into the fairway to give him the ‘all clear’ signal instead. The ball turned out to be rested on some TV wires, twigs, and dirt and he was able to have a look, albeit through a small window of some trees, at the green. Pulling out his 7-iron, he hit a clean shot to within seven feet of the pin, where he sank his birdie putt after Spieth missed his ten-footer to seal the victory. Had Spieth won, he would have become the youngest player to win two events in the modern era of the PGA Tour. Zach Johnson had another solid finish, placing tied for fourth at (-11). With the Wyndham Championship being the final event of the PGA Tour season, some players on the bubble tried to bump their way into the top-125, who all automatically qualify for The Barclay’s this week, unfortunately none were successful.Check Out the Full Review Here

download Jason Dufner had a chance at history on Friday, as he stood over a putt that would have given him a 62 for the round – something no player has ever done in a major championship. He would leave that putt about 18in short, before tapping in for a record-tying 63. In his post-round interview, he stated that while making that putt would have been a remarkable achievement, he would rather make history and be remembered by winning the Wannamaker Trophy at the end of the tournament. Following rounds of 71 & 68 on the weekend, he made good on those words by coming from one shot behind on Sunday to win the 95th PGA Championship and capture his first-ever major victory.Check Out the Full Review Here

download Tiger Woods (-15) cruises to a seven shot victory and 8th WGC Bridgestone Invitational title The golf world was set abuzz on Friday afternoon as word spread of some possible greatness by Tiger. The score “59” was being whispered as people wondered if he’d be able to reach the magical mark, which has only been done seven times in PGA Tour history. He was certainly capable, and had two putts inside ten feet that he barely missed that would’ve given him the record-tying score. However, he did tie his own record-low round, making a long putt for par on 18 to save 61. That incredible round set him up for the rest of the weekend, as he was never challenged by anyone else in the field and was able to maintain leads of up to nine strokes and no less than six despite only finishing (-2) for the final 36 holes.Check Out the Full Review Here

In Case You Missed It / Weekend Recap 7/21/130

images The final round of any major is likely to see some leaderboard shifting, but what happened on Sunday at Muirfiled was almost as if those who saw themselves in contention just didn’t want to win as each faltered down the stretch. A much more reasonable explanation is that the difficulty of the course – with the famous pot bunkers and tall heather rough – caught up with the leaders and allowed the only person to go really low take home the coveted trophy. Lee Westwood was in position to win his first career major by being in the final pairing holding a 2-shot lead over partner Hunter Mahan and Tiger Woods (who was one group ahead). However, Westwood did not hit a fairway on the front nine en route to a final round 75, where he finished T3 at (+1) for the championship.Check Out the Full Review Here

Adam’s Tight Lies Preview0

Tight_Lies_vst toe-thumb-225x228-102266 Sixteen years ago when Tiger stormed onto the scene and I decided I wanted to try this great game of golf, I bought a cheap starter set at the local K-mart, the set didn't include a fairway wood. Once I started playing more and knew I loved the game, I got my hands on the original Adam's Tight Lies fairway wood and, my driver never saw the light of day again. Adam's recently announced it will be launching a new version of the classic club and it looks phenomenal, the original tight lies really set the bar for the present day fairway woods we are seeing. The Tight Lies was known for it's upside down look, and very low center of gravity that made it playable from "Tight-Lies", and lies of all types. The new version looks like it won't disappoint as you can see from the picture, it still has a low center of gravity and Adam's added the patented speed slots. The new Tight Lies was used at the Greenbier classic this year by Tom Watson and Kenny Perry, and came with rave reviews. I for one am excited to hit this when it comes out, and it has a little nostalgia feel to it. How about you?

TaylorMade SLDR Driver Preview0

sldr2 TaylorMade always seems to be at the forefront in Golf Technology and Design, and it looks like they are at it again with recent pictures popping up all over the internet of their new driver the SLDR. Staying on the fully adjustable driver market, it seems TaylorMade is making it easier to adjust your driver to your exact specifications and help to dial in your driver on the range before heading out to the range. In the pictures I have seen, it looks like on the hossel you can still adjust your loft, but on the bottom of the club instead of a dial like the R11 and R1 you now have a Slider and a ton of more settings between a closed and open club face. Below you will see a picture of Lucas Glover who recently tested the club, and other big names have taken to twitter saying they love the club. Comment below or follow the link below over to our forum to join in on the discussion, what do you think of this club? Do you think the adjustable club is good for golf, or is it getting out of hand and even players with bad swings can now hit it straight?Check Out the Full Review Here

inbee Bill Haas wins 5th PGA Tour event, moves to 7th in FedEx Cup standings On a day that began with a crowded leaderboard, Bill Haas (-12) sank key birdies to pull away from the field at the AT&T National to win by three strokes. At one point Sunday there was a six-way tie for first, until Haas sank a birdie putt on the eighth hole to take the solo lead for good. With the win, Haas has now won at least one event in each of the last four years, and joined an elite group of players on the Tour who have also done so: Phil Mickelson, Dustin Johnson, and Justin Rose.Check Out the Full Review Here

kenduke At 44, Ken Duke Earns First Career PGA Tour Victory in 2-Hole Playoff Heading into the final round, the leaderboard at the Traveler’s Championship was quite bunched: a three-way tie for first at (-10) between Bubba Watson, Graham DeLaet, and Charley Hoffman, and 21 other players within five shots. Nobody came out of the gate to separate themselves from the pack, although Angel Cabrera & Ricky Fowler, despite being out of contention, both had strong finishes posting (-7) and (-6) respectively. In the end however, the day belonged to Ken Duke (-12) who won his first career PGA Tour event at age 44. It took two playoff holes versus Chris Stroud to get the job done, and he almost had it wrapped up in regulation as Stroud needed to birdie the final hole to force the playoff. On the 18th, Stroud’s approach landed near the pin, but rolled just off the green, forcing him to chip in to tie Duke, and he did just that (see link below for video clip).Check Out the Full Review Here

rose Justin Rose stood atop the leaderboard when it mattered most this weekend, giving him his first-career major title. Rose, 32, played even par for the final round and was in the clubhouse as Mickelson and the final groups played into 18, where Phil needed to hole his approach shot to tie. The victory is no doubt a career-defining one for Rose, as he becomes the first Englishman to win a major since Nick Faldo in 1996, and the first to win the US Open since 1970. Rose also moves up one spot to third in the World Golf Rankings, trading places with Matt Kuchar (now fourth). Read More...Check Out the Full Review Here

images Harris English (-12) earned his first PGA Tour win on Sunday at the FedEx St. Jude Classic at TPC Southwind in Memphis, TN. English held the lead for the first two rounds, relinquished it to rookie Shawn Stefani in round three, then had an up-and-down final round to secure the victory: 37 out/32 in, with 6 birdies and 5 bogeys to finish 1-under for the day. Despite having the third round lead (in which he overcame a quadruple-bogey on the 11th hole Saturday to shoot a 4-under 66), Stefani had a tough final round as he shot +6/76, finishing six shots back overall. Harris English’s front 9 in the final round didn’t seem to be the start of a champion, as he went out in 37, but he rebounded on the back nine finishing with four birdies and only one bogey.
