Golf News – March 1, 2018

G/FORE is stepping into new horizons with its latest collection as Bubba Watson strolled back to winning ways.

BEVERLY HILLS, CA – The Californian brand – which was recently acquired by Peter Millar – has unveiled its spring/summer 2018 range with some exciting new additions. But brand ambassador Watson put his best foot forward in the Hightop Disruptor as he claimed the Genesis Open in style recently at Riviera for his first PGA Tour title in two years.

In keeping with the brand’s Disruptive Luxury theme, the striking shoe is part of the G/FORE 2018 spring/summer collection with its athletic casual look with waterproof, full grain leather. The subtle step change in the footwear range has continued with an updated version of the Cruiser. Inspired by the traditional loafer, it incorporates an athletic fit and an ultra-lightweight sole. With a new, washable and anti-microbial, triple density foam cushion Ortholite sock liner for superior comfort, it’s a shoe which translates perfectly to the clubhouse after the round.

Also new to the party is the Patriot Disruptor, which fuses street fashion with the golf shoe but combines superior comfort with simple, elegant style. Designed with all the same premium outsole details optimising traction, flexibility and support, the full grain leather creates a casual, yet fully waterproof look. Aside from the colourful, premium-quality gloves, which continue to earn plaudits and ensured Watson keep a strong grip on the title, the broad apparel range adds a bright new dimension to the fairway, the clubhouse and beyond.

For those who wish to inject some real personality into their fashion, the Rosebud Polo and its floral print will catch the attention while the Camo Midlayer adds a subtle, yet fashion-slanted edge when an extra layer is required.

G/FORE has also retained its trademark humour with a casual T-shirt with the slogan “No 1 cares what you shot” – which is ideal to worn when faced by imminent approach of a golf bore.  Meanwhile, G/FORE’s broad range of accessories also now has even more variety. The Varsity Snapback and Classic Fore Play hats are brimming with style and will complement any outfit.

Giannulli added: “At G/FORE, we aim to help someone express their own individuality and style, rather than conforming to the norm and the spring/summer 2018 collection is an extension of that.

Driving Better Recovery: Marc Pro Teams with Golf Legend David Leadbetter

David Leadbetter is committed to holistic methods of recovery and pain relief for professional and amateur golfers and has experienced the positive impact of the Marc Pro devices

HUNTINGTON BEACH, CA – Marc Pro, creators of electronic muscle recovery and conditioning devices that maximize training, help prevent injury and deliver pain relief, announces a partnership with renowned golf coach, author and founder of the Leadbetter Academy, David Leadbetter.

For the average amateur golfer, regular pains or niggles can affect the golf game. As golfers play harder and get older, chronic pain can become more prevalent and tends to prevent people from playing their best game or hitting the green as frequently as they would want. David Leadbetter was introduced to the Marc Pro via David Donatucci, owner of the Institute of Performance, and several of his students. The day Leadbetter tried the Marc Pro, he was dealing with pain in his own finger, and was able to experience the positive effects of the Marc Pro for himself.

“It’s simple, the Marc Pro allows an individual to use the device and feel less pain,” said David Leadbetter. “Anyone from an amateur to pro golfer can decrease recovery time and get on the green more by using the Marc Pro.”

“Marc Pro is excited to work  with David Leadbetter,” said Marc Pro President and CEO, Ryan Heaney. “David understands the power of this easy to use device and recognizes its value in faster recovery because it allows so many players to stay in the game, and enjoy every stroke. Marc Pro fits so well with David’s holistic philosophy to help people feel better so they are more likely to play better.”
