ANY IDEA WHO SAID THIS? “One of the worst days in America’s history saw some of the bravest acts in Americans’ history. We’ll always honor the heroes of 9/11. And here at this hallowed place, we pledge that we will never forget their sacrifice.”

BRAIN TEASER: Who was the last player to win 5 times in a PGA TOUR season?

ONE MORE TIME? What’s old is new and new is old. That is one way to sum up the latest from Cleveland Golf. Cleveland Golf announced the introduction of the Launcher HB Turbo Driver and Launcher HB Turbo Fairway Woods. The name should be familiar to golfers as its been used before by the company. “Reintroducing Cleveland Golf Woods and Irons two years ago has been very successful,” said Brian Schielke, Marketing Director at Cleveland Golf. “However, the new Launcher HB Turbo woods represent a huge step up from the previous generation. They’re sleeker, faster, and more forgiving – exactly what all of us avid golfers are looking for off the tee.”

For Cleveland Golf, Launcher has always stood for one thing: launching the ball high in the air. The new Launcher HB Turbo remains committed to that mission with a lighter hosel, improved crown, and deeper weighting, according to the company.

“The Launcher HB Turbo is engineered to help you hit long, straight drives,” said Jeff Brunski, Vice President of Research and Development at Cleveland Golf. “We’ve squeezed discretionary weight out of every corner of the club head in order to produce one of the most forgiving drivers we’ve ever made. We’ve paired it with a high-balance point shaft that’s easier to swing fast. Authentic technologies such as the Turbocharged Cup Face, the Ultralight Hosel, and a more aerodynamic crown help the Launcher HB Turbo earn its name.”
  
The redesigned HiBore Crown features a prominent step that lowers the center of gravity, Cleveland said. Launcher HB Turbo comes standard with the new Miyazaki C. Kua shaft, which pulls weight from the length of the shaft and repositions it on the grip end, the company said.

The same technologies that define the Launcher HB Turbo Driver are featured within the Launcher HB Turbo Fairway Woods. The Launcher HB Turbo Driver is available in two different models: standard (9°, 10.5°, 12° options) and DRAW (10.5°) at a MAP of $349.99. The Launcher HB Turbo Fairway Woods feature a 3-wood (15°) and 5-wood (18°) at a MAP of $229.99 each.

LONG LIVE THE KING: The King still reigns on the PGA Tour. Tuesday marked what would have been Arnold Palmer’s 90th birthday. And while nearly three years have passed since Palmer’s death, his impact is still felt on Tour just as strongly as when he spent his days signing autographs at home in Latrobe or buzzing around in golf cart at his beloved Bay Hill. “He was just a cool guy, and he got along with everyone,” Adam Scott said. “He was 80 years old and he got along with 20-year-olds, and 20-year-olds wanted to hang around him. He liked telling some stories and having a good time, and I think he genuinely kind of loved living life. And that’s appealing to a lot of people.” READ MORE>>>
