CARLSBAD, CA – PUMA Golf continues to take golf footwear to the next level, today introducing NXT generation footwear designed on a completely new IGNITE spikeless traction platform with three unique, versatile, and fashion forward upper silhouettes. The NXT collection provides wearers added stability and comfort in multiple show-stopping designs, featuring PUMA’s proprietary DISC technology, a traditional lacing style, and the new SOLELACE, for the ultimate in locked-in comfort.

Each of the models in the NXT family are built from the ground up using PUMA’s Pro-Form TPU outsole with an organically-altered traction pattern, featuring over 100 strategically placed directional hexagon lugs in proper zones, for maximum stability and traction. In addition, a full-length IGNITE Foam midsole, wrapped in SOLESHIELD for added durability, delivers unparalleled comfort and energy return to help golfers play their best all day long.

Big Max Makes ‘Major’ Progress At Pinehurst Resort

Major Championship venue, Pinehurst Resort, joins roster of the world’s top courses to choose BIG MAX rental cart fleet

TACOMA, WA – Europe’s leading golf push cart manufacturer, BIG MAX, is delighted to report it has been chosen by U.S. Open and PGA Championship host, Pinehurst Resort, to supply the Rental Cart Fleet to the newly opened Pinehurst No.4.

The North Carolina resort, that has hosted the U.S. Open and PGA Championship, joins an illustrious list of names such as the ‘Home of Golf’ St. Andrews Old Course, to choose the BIG MAX Fleet 333C for their rental fleet. Top of the range BIG MAX rentals also feature at U.S. Open venue Chambers Bay in Washington State, Eisenhower Golf Club in Colorado Springs, across all the courses at St. Andrews’ Links Trust in Scotland, Ryder Cup venue Gleneagles, and other notable U.K. courses such as Sunningdale and Kingsbarns.

The decision to invest in BIG MAX rental carts at the new Gil Hanse designed course was relatively simple as the venue wanted a rental cart that reflected the quality on offer at the course, Rick Oldach, CEO of BIG MAX USA states, “We are proud of the fact that the most prestigious courses all over the world, such as Chambers Bay, St. Andrews and Gleneagles, choose BIG MAX rental carts, and are delighted that Pinehurst No.4 has joined the long list of top-quality courses”.

The Fleet 333C from BIG MAX is the flagship model in the rental fleet range.

With more venues choosing to stock quality rentals, BIG MAX’s drive to get more people walking the course is set to gain pace. And with the list of BIG MAX rental venues beginning to look like a Top 100 course list, golfers know that wherever you find BIG MAX you’ll find quality.

Club Champion Now Open in the Milwaukee Area – Golfers Choose from 35,000 Head & Shaft Combinations

CHICAGO, IL – Club Champion, the country’s #1 premium golf club fitting and building company, announces the opening of its new fitting studio at 95 N Moorland Road, Suite E1, in Brookfield, Wisconsin. The new store is now open.

The new location features approximately 3,000 square feet of space and has been designed to showcase Club Champion’s premium fitting experience and 35,000 hittable clubhead and shaft combinations. The studio includes two indoor hitting bays with Trackman launch monitors for analyzing performance, a SAM PuttLab’s fitting system to find the perfect putter on their practice green, and a build shop for repairing and assembling golf clubs by hand.

Ranked by Golf Digest as one of the 100 Best Club Fitters eight years running, Club Champion hires experienced fitters who then receive an additional 150+ hours of training before starting their job; unmatched in the golf industry. The company has a unique coupling system that allows them to combine any head and shaft together, so golfers hit the precise combination to be custom built for them. They are the only fitter in the country to offer 35,000 interchangeable head and shaft combinations on-site, at all locations. Golfers get to hit the exact club that will be custom built for them.

A recent Golf Magazine study showed our average customer gained 22 yards off the tee, 15 yards with their irons and lowered their scores by 3 strokes. Many players think they aren’t good enough to be custom fit. But the study showed that higher-handicappers saw the biggest gains. Some of these golfers gained as much as 25 more yards with their drivers and shaved as many as 10 strokes per round.

With advances in club technology, most golfers could easily hit the ball farther and more accurately, yet a Golf Magazine study found that 90% of US golfers may be playing with improperly fit clubs.
