Galvin Green - Ventil8 Technology

Galvin Green Introduces Spring/Summer 2015 Range Of Ventil8™ Polos, Shorts And Pants

Lightweight, ultra-breathable fabric offers superior moisture transportation and uv protection for hot, humid conditions

(VÄxjö, Sweden) – Galvin Green – the world’s leading maker of functional golf clothing for serious players and the No. 1 global golf partner of GORE-TEX® – announces the introduction of its Spring/Summer 2015 range of polos, shorts and pants crafted from Ventil8 fabrics.

Lightweight and ultra-breathable, Ventil8 garments keep men and women cooler and drier on hot, humid summer days. This is accomplished via a proprietary blend of premium materials that transport moisture away from the skin while incorporating exclusive anti-bacterial technology and UV protection (20+). Engineered directly into the fibers, these distinctive performance characteristics will never wash- or wear-out.

“As the signature Cool Layer selections in our Multi-Layer Concept, Ventil8 tops and bottoms help passionate golfers deal with and overcome excessive heat,” says Andrew Creed, President of Galvin Green USA. “Each piece helps you stay comfortable and play your best, even when your competitors are wilting.”

Highlight men’s items include the Maddox body mapping polo that transports moisture twice as quickly as a conventional technical golf shirt, as well as the Ned pants and Phil shorts which boast a remarkably comfortable fit and soft hand feel. The women’s offerings include the Millie short sleeved shirt, Nicole pants, Nadia capris and Petra shorts. Each item can be cleaned after use with a simple machine wash.

TaylorMade Golf Company Introduces Daddy Long Legs+ Counterbalance Putter

In Partnership with SuperStroke, Next-Generation Counterbalance Putter is Company’s Most Stable Offering to Date

Carlsbad, Calif. (June 29, 2015) – Two years ago, TaylorMade Golf Company changed the golf industry by releasing the then-most advanced putters the company had ever created – the Daddy Long Legs and Spider Blade counterbalanced putters. In 2014, engineers upped the ante with the release of the Spider Mallet counterbalance and ultra-stable Ghost Spider Si. Today, TaylorMade has changed the game in putter technology and performance with the announcement of the release of the new Daddy Long Legs+ Putter; the most technologically-advanced and stable putter the company has ever created.


The DLL+ putter features the new SuperStroke XL 2.0 grip with 125 gram counter weight and a True Temper lightweight steel shaft for extreme counterbalancing to maximize stability during the stroke. The DLL+ puts 200% more weight above the hands to raises the balance point 2” to allow greater control of the heavier head. Combine this new balance point with the 8856 MOI of the DLL+ head creates the most stable overall putter TaylorMade has ever created.

Crafted incorporating feedback from TaylorMade Tour Professionals, the new design of the DDL+ features updated styling with a sleek matte black finish with premium accents including a new non-glare tour satin grey finish and contrasting alignment lines for enhanced alignment and confidence at address. The complex construction of the Daddy Long Legs+ features 17 individual pieces, meticulously engineered to create the highest-performing, most stable face-balanced putter in the TaylorMade lineup.


Another feature found on the Daddy Long Legs+ putter is TaylorMade’s new deep-milled 6061 13-gram aluminum insert, inspired by Tour player feedback and engineered to deliver a crisp, clean feel off the putter face and a smooth, accurate roll. The rough surface of the insert also softens the sound at impact, delivering more auditory feedback preferred by better players.

“With Daddy Long Legs+, the stability and performance of our counterbalance putters have been taken to the next level,” said Clay Long, Senior Director of Product Creation, Putters. “We’ve taken one of our most popular putters of all time and added performance features to deliver a remarkably stable putting stroke, which golfers of all abilities can benefit from.”

Pricing, Options and Availability
Available domestically July 15, the Daddy Long Legs Plus is priced at $249, and is offered in a single bend 34.5″, 36″ or 38″ shaft with SuperStroke XL 2.0 grip. For more information, visit
