Set Yourself Up To Make Putts

Odyssey Red Ball is a face-balanced mallet putter with a Red Ball scope, Versa high contrast alignment, and a White Hot insert.

CARLSBAD, CA – We built the new Odyssey Red Ball Putters specifically to address and improve on two things: proper set up and proper alignment. Having the right set up and alignment is crucial for any player, and this innovative new design is all about getting you properly positioned over the ball.

We’ve put a distinct Red Ball inside the scope of the putter so that it’s incredibly easy to align the face to the intended start line on every putt. Combined with the black and white framing from our proven Versa high contrast alignment, this forgiving mallet removes the variables in your set up.

And that’s how you’re able to get the right set up and the proper line every time you’re over the ball. With all of this technology, and the legendary sound, feel and roll from our White Hot RX insert, you have everything you need to become a more consistent putter.

adidas Golf Unveils Apparel for 2018 Open Championship at Carnoustie

CARLSBAD, CA –  The third major of the year is usually one that pits players against the unpredictable elements. For that reason, it’s even more important that players have everything they need to perform their best on the course. Today adidas Golf revealed the featured apparel from the fall 2018 line that players will rely on as they seek to make history at the 147th Open Championship.

All players at some point throughout their rounds will once again look to the best polo adidas has ever made, the Ultimate365 Polo that launched in January of this year. Touted as the most consistent fitting polo in the line, it will provide the perfect amount of breathability, stretch, drape and weight that players need in the tough conditions along the Scottish coastline.

Dustin Johnson returns to Carnoustie – this time as the top-ranked player in the world – on a mission to claim his second major. The FedEx Cup points leader will be wearing the Ultimate365 Polo along with the 3-Stripes Heather Blocked Polo in his traditional navy colorway paired with the Ultimate Flat Front Pant and 3-Stipes Pant.

Jon Rahm makes his third career start at the OPEN Championship, looking to capture his first major and further solidify his spot on the European Ryder Cup team. The world No. 5 will rely on the Ultimate365 Polo and adidas Bold 3-Stripes Polo with the Ultimate Flat Front Pant and 3-Stripes Pant.

Sergio Garcia returns to Carnoustie looking for redemption following his dramatic second place finish when the Open Championship was contested there in 2007. Sergio will be wearing the Ultimate365 Polo along with the adidas Bold 3-Stripes Polo in white, grey and blue colorways as a subtle nod to the oldest championship in golf. He’ll pair the polos with the Ultimate Flat Front Pant and 3-Stripes Pant.

Something new in every player’s bag will be the Go-To Adapt Jacket, the latest from adidas that offers all-weather protection built to function specifically for the golf swing. The water-resistant fabric combines with a fleece-lined shell to give all players a grab-and-go option that they can trust on the course.

Size Matters With Sun Mountain Golf Carts

MISSOULA, MT– Sun Mountain is rolling out a new collection of Pathfinder golf push carts that fold smaller than the company’s flagship Speed Cart.

The three-wheeled Pathfinder 3 folded dimensions are 29 x 13 x 17 and it weighs 16 pounds. Pathfinder 4 has four wheels, folds to 26 x 16 x 14 and weighs 17 pounds.

Opening the Pathfinder is a very simple process with just one latch to open. Pathfinder has also been designed so the golf bag sits more upright, for easier club removal. Pathfinder comes with bungee cords to secure the golf bag; an adjustable upper bag bracket that accommodates a wide array of golf bag sizes and shapes (including stand bags); a full-featured console tray; and a lined rangefinder bag that comes standard with the cart. Pathfinder 3 and Pathfinder 4 will be available in eight different color combinations.

Sun Mountain also offers an ever-expanding collection of golf push cart accessories including: cooler bag, water bottle holder, cigar holder, adjustable umbrella holder, travel case, and more. Sun Mountain will continue to offer the Speed Cart and the Pathfinder 4 will replace the Micro-Cart GT.
