ANY IDEA WHO SAID THIS? “I'm an extremely competitive person and I also like the fact that you don't need anybody to make golf entertaining. You can play by yourself and be fine and you can compete against yourself. I think the journey of self-improvement is what gets all of us. The journey of trying to beat the golf course and trying to beat yourself every day, I think that's what made me fall in love with the game. That was very important as a kid. I just loved going out to the chipping range just chipping and putting and spending time by myself just because I'm competitive within myself, trying to beat my best score, as simple as that.”

BRAIN TEASER: In the history of the Safeway Classic there has only been one wire-to-wire winner. Can you name him?

THEY SAY ITS TRUE: Titleist has introduced the TruFeel golf ball. For players that prefer a very soft compression feel, Titleist TruFeel improves upon the prior trufeelgeneration DT TruSoft, according to the company.

“We know from our extensive player testing that golfers who gravitate toward the softest feeling golf balls are also clearly focused on performance,” said Michael Mahoney, Vice President, Titleist Golf Ball Marketing. “In this category, we continue to see competitive products that sacrifice distance or short-game spin in order to gain a softer feel. TruFeel strikes the perfect balance of extremely soft feel and all-around performance. Our engineers have advanced TruFeel’s low compression technology to add speed and distance in the long game while preserving the feel that golfers tell us they love – and the playability on every shot that makes this ball a Titleist.”

Now available in golf shops worldwide (MAP $22.99), TruFeel is available in White and Optic Yellow, with a new Matte Red color option to be added in January 2020. The new TruFeel sidestamp has been designed to double as an alignment aid. According to the company, the design was inspired by the most popular alignment aid available through the My Titleist customizer on Titleist.com since alignment options debuted back in February 2018

SPACE SAVER: Sun Mountain has introduced the Kube golf travel bag. It appears like an ordinary, small, plastic suitcase but unbuckled it opens into a full-sized golf travel bag. “Kube is ideal for someone who travels periodically with their golf clubs,” explained President of Sun Mountain, Ed Kowachek, “and wants their golf travel bag to take up as little space as possible when not in use.”

Kube’s folded size is 9” x 13” x 14.5” and weighs only 6.8 lbs. It is constructed from durable, ballistic style fabric in combination with plastic half-shells with dense foam padding through the top of the bag to protect golf clubs. Kube is available in eight colors with a retail price of $229.99. For the retailer nearest you, call 800-227-9224 or visit www.sunmountain.com.

WEB GEMS:

SPECIAL DAY AT A SPECIAL PLACE: Justin Walters found his form in spectacular style at St Andrews to take a one shot lead after an emotional first day of the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship. The South African has faced plenty of adversity on the golf course during the 2019 Race to Dubai, battling a calf injury over the summer and failing to register a top 20 in 23 starts on the European Tour. The 38-year-old also sadly lost his father this year but revealed after carding a stunning 63 that he felt his presence as he fired his lowest round on the European Tour for six years at the home of golf.
