ANY IDEA WHO SAID THIS? “Jarrod and I were real close. We didn't get to spend a whole lot time together in the past few years. But sent these down to a guy in Miami, Nomad Customs, he did them. Actually had them at the PGA on the weekend but I didn't have anything to wear with them so I couldn't really make it work and I thought it would be a fun time to bring them out and obviously we don't want to ever forget Jarrod. I think as long as we can have people remember his name, who he was and kind of continue on the legacy of what he was doing, you know, fight he was putting up but also remind people that people die from cancer everyday, especially leukemia as well, and there's plenty of families like his going through the fight now and into the future. It's not something that just goes away. I think it will be fun to carry on his name.”

BRAIN TEASER: Can you name Tiger Woods’ first and last PGA TOUR victories?

BEST FOOT FORWARD: New Balance Golf is rolling out its 2019 footwear line led by the NB Tour. The athletic designed is built on a foundation to provide the ultimate in fit, comfort and performance, according to the company. The NB Tour is built on a PW-1 last, which gives golfers a wider forefoot with a shallow toe box depth, the company said, and a lower instep height for better ground feel.

nbtourThe REVlite midsole, originally designed to provide lightweight cushioning to runners, promises maximum comfort for golfers while walking the course, according to New Balance. An innovative cushioning foam, the company said, combined with the Rapid Rebound sockliner provides new levels of energy and comfort in this performance golf shoe.

The ultimate test of any shoe is how it performs under all types of conditions. Comfort, traction, and durability are the keys. The TPU outsole with the NB Tour features flex grooves that were specifically designed to move with the natural motion of the foot. The NB Tour uses the low-profile Champ Slim-Lok Zarma Tour cleat system with nine cleats, for better contact with the ground. The cleat system is anti-clogging and is highly durable with superior traction.

The NB Tour has a suggested retail price of $149.95 and will be available October 1st.

BACK TO THE FUTURE AGAIN: In case you didn’t hear, Tiger Woods got off to a good start at the BMW Championship! He was able to find fairways, which is something that has plagued him for most of the season. According to the former world #1, he decided to back to something besides his Scotty Cameron putter. “I have weak lofts in my irons, probably from the old school days and there's no reason why I shouldn't have done it with the driver,” he explained. “This entire year though it's been a moving target because my body has changed so much since the beginning of the year. I didn't know what I could do. My speed, my rotation, so many different things that have evolved throughout the year and have gotten better and so we've decided to go with more loft and go back to a shaft that I won with a lot and so, again, the feel in my hands oh, that's a familiar feel, that's a familiar flex point, that's a familiar vibration of the shaft. Those are all things that I used to feel and but now I think I'm in position I can do it again.” Perhaps his words will ring even truer on Sunday if he’s able to continue his strong play!
