Louis Oosthuizen may have thrown the biggest haymaker in the fight, but it was the feisty long ball hitter, Bubba Watson, who sustained the roar of the crowd when Oosthuizen made history with his double eagle on the second hole, to throw enough of his own punches that allowed him to prevail on the second…

Titleist Scotty Cameron Newport 2 Putter Review

Introduction Most amateur golfers ignore the performance-determining features of a golf club such as build quality and technologies, focusing more on the style and glamor quotient.

Accurate, consistent and stylish pretty much sum up Cobra S3 irons. I heard these clubs have the ability to help with distance, so I figured I’d give them a fair shake to win me over. Although their design may be a little flashy for my taste, I’ve learned to never judge a book by its…

Callaway Diablo Octane Driver Review

Quite honestly, I have not been this excited about a driver (or any other club) since the Big Bertha.
