I recently spent a couple days at the International Network of Golf annual conference in Atlantic City NJ and here are some of the new products and services I discovered while I was there.
This is an all in one pushcart and golf bag— these units are all one piece and fits easily in your car trunk. It features four large easily detachable wheels with a strong enough club cover that it can also serve as your travel bag (no outside travel bag needed) and it takes just seconds to set up. It’s also easily converts to a cart bag.
EyeLoc Golf Gear— These are Sunglasses that are a training aid to keep your eyes locked on the ball and your head still. It has a vertical line in each lens (which you adjust to your own eyes) and you simply adjust it till you see only one line. Keep your ball within that line and the slightest eye or head movement off the ball is detected
StgrackalLine uses laser technology to map the slope and breaks of golf course putting greens. They have been doing it for years for the PGA tour yardage books and now have an ap called “own the app own the green” If your course subscribes to their service you can download these maps to your mobile device and get complete information on the slope and break of greens The ap is $20 per year
Knuth Golf Dean Knuth had developed a new driver called High Heat. It is USGA conforming and is longer and far more forgiving than the major brand drivers. Its unique feature is its greatly increased sweet spot. Its in beta testing and should be avail in Sept 2014. I hit several shots of the prototype on the range and I want one when they come out.
Snag Golf developed appropriate golf equipment to be experienced on non- traditional venues. Over 12,000 schools are worldwide are using Snag Golf to introduce children to the game of golf. We played it on the beach and its quite fun
Nexbelt Is your belt holes sometime just a bit too tight or too loose because of the proximity of the buckle holes? Nexbelt has no holes and has developed a racheting system that lets you adjust it to the next 1/4 inch. They have many snappy designs and for both golf and causal wear.
Golf Mesquite and the Amputee Long Drive Championship Golf Mesquite has hosted the Remax long drive contest for several years now and this October15-17, 2014 they will host the Amputee Long Drive Championship. These are people who are not fully able body. We saw three of them do a demonstration on the driving range. A one armed man was hitting his drive 260 plus yards and two men who each had one good leg and one prothesis were hitting drives in excess of 375 yards—- wow http://www.amputeelongdrivechampionship.com
