What is the Golf Season in Tampa, Florida?

After a very wet winter in North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia and Georgia, avid golfers have started to look at winter opportunities elsewhere. While everyone can’t up and fly to Palm Springs, California, Tampa, Florida is a short drive down the Interstate. Most private Tampa, Florida country and golf clubs have their peak golf season November through March and April. Some clubs close down two days during the summer months for maintenance reasons.

Does the Austin, Texas Drought Affect Golf Course Conditions?

It is had to argue that Austin, Texas is one of the “hottest” places to move in the United States in 2021. Literally and figuratively. With Apple, Tesla and a number of other tech companies having headquarters in Austin, there are plenty of high paying jobs. Those that are moving to Austin will likely look for private country club and golf club information. What they will likely find out is the weather isn’t exactly ideal for golf 12 months out of the year.

What is the Golf Season in Palm Springs, California?

So, in essence, Palm Springs is golfing while the rest of the country is going through the winter months.

What Green Callaway Driver is Jon Rahm Using in 2021?

Jon Rahm made his PGA Tour debut as a Callaway “ambassador” at the the Tournament of Champions in January 2021. In late January Rahm headed back to Torrey Pines and the Farmers Insurance Open. As a former champion, many eyes were on him and noticed he was decked out in Callaway from head to toe and in the bag. So, what is in the bag (WITB)? What green Callaway driver is Jon Rahm using in 2021?

Should I Use a 60 Degree or 58 Degree Wedge?

Every single time I play a round of golf someone has to mention they have a 58 degree wedge vs a 60 degree wedge. Some golfers even make it a point to brag that they can hit a 62 degree or 64 degree wedge. Others will claim you should never use a lob or sand wedge anywhere but the sand. So, what is the best wedge to use and when should you use it? If you are looking to improve your game with the best Raleigh, NC golf instruction I would suggest going to Patrick Kelley. Even if you aren’t local to Raleigh, NC, Patrick Kelley is worth the trip to help you improve your game.

What Driver Does Cameron Champ Play?

Cameron Champ has made a name for himself during the last tournaments of 2018 which are the 2019 FedEx Cup season. He has pounded several drives over 400 yards and his driving average is around 330 yards. He is also coming through at impact with a swing speed in excess of 130 mph. If you are searching for the driver he is hitting, it does not mean it will add distance to your drive. Your golf swing will. If you can swing at 130 mph and hit the ball square, you too will hit it well over 300. If you can’t work on your swing, not your equipment. That said, Cameron Champ hits theĀ Ping G400 Max driver.

Note that Cameron Champ also has a custom shaft that you likely cannot even fathom imaginable. Most amateurs have a swing speed around 85 to 90 mph so do not think the Ping G400 Max is going to add 40 yards to your drive.

Justin Rose to Play Honma Irons in 2019

Beginning in January 2019, world golf #1 (right now) is switching from Taylormade irons and wedges to Honma. At this point, it looks like his contract will allow him to play any type of woods and driver which likely means he will stick with Taylormade, but who knows. We are also uncertain of the type of ball Rose will be required to play. Both Honma and Taylormade make golf balls for PGA Tour pros.

If you were wondering, some Honma irons have gone for as much as $75,000. You can go on eBay and find a set of Honma irons for as little as $275 and as much as $50,000. Not bad.

Should I Be Worried If I Am Not Hitting My New Irons Further?

When most amateurs buy new irons they are looking for one thing – distance. Very rarely do you hear an amateur say, “I got my new irons and I hit them about 10% shorter but they are straight as an arrow.” Nope, instead you hear, “I am hitting my 8 iron 15 yards further than I used to hit my old irons.” So, if you have purchased new irons and they aren’t going as far, should you be worried?
