TRUE Linkswear Announces Collaboration with National MS Society

TACOMA, WA – TRUE Linkwear announced today a collaboration with the National Multiple Sclerosis (MS Society) on a pair of Knit golf shoes. Each pair will feature a warm charcoal colorway along with an embroidered orange ribbon to represent MS awareness and with a custom #MSSTRONG insert. TRUE pledges to donate $30 per pair sold back to the organization and participate in the annual South Sound Walk MS in Tacoma, WA on April 13, 2019. In addition to donating $30 per sold pair, TRUE will also be collecting additional donations via their Walk MS page available on the official MS Society site (http://main.nationalmssociety.org/goto/true_linkswear).

“Our entire mission, as an organization, is to Enjoy the Walk” stated Jason Moore, TRUE President/Partner. “Multiple Sclerosis is a disease that immediately impacts someone’s ability to walk and goes against our mission. Naturally, we wanted to help and came up with the idea of a custom shoe.” TRUE worked hand-in-hand with the Greater Northwest Chapter of the MS Society on the design, development, and production of the MS Knit.

“Multiple Sclerosis is a disease that impacts over 2.3 million people worldwide. We’re extremely grateful and fortunate that TRUE joined us on our mission to raise awareness and generate attention toward a disease that severally impacts one’s quality of life, “ mentioned Eric Ford, Walk MS Manager of the Greater Northwest Chapter.

Ben Hogan Golf Equipment Company Debuts Precision Milled FORGED Putter Line

FORT WORTH, TX– Ben Hogan once said, “there are no shortcuts in the quest for perfection.” Today, Ben Hogan Golf Equipment Company, the brand founded by the legendary golfer in 1953, introduced its first putter line in nearly fifteen years with the release of a Precision Milled FORGED putter line.

The new CNC precision milled putters are crafted from soft, 1020 carbon steel in a multi-step forging process that strengthens and purifies the molecular structure of the metal. True forging refines and tightens the grain structure of the steel and provides for uniform density across the entire face.  This eliminates hot spots, or dead areas,  and results in unparalleled feel, consistent distance control and “trueness” on every roll.

Complementing the unique design features of the new Ben Hogan Precision Milled FORGED Putters, which are available in four (4) traditional head models with clean, elegant lines, is a proprietary DBM (Diamond Black Metal) finish. The most durable black finish on the market, DBM eliminates glare and generates more contrast with the ball and putting surface to promote better alignment.  Additionally, the face of every Ben Hogan Precision Milled FORGED putter is CNC milled for perfect flatness from heel to toe.

The four models in the new line of Ben Hogan Golf Precision Milled FORGED Putters include:

  • Plumber’s Neck Blade
  • Player’s Blade with a double bend shaft
  • Iconic Player’s Blade with a flowing neck
  • Player’s Mallet

All Ben Hogan Golf equipment … every iron, wedge, hybrid and now putters … is built one-at-a-time, to a golfer’s specifications. Available in right-hand models only, the standard length for all Ben Hogan Precision Milled FORGED Putters is 35.0”, but all can be customized in lengths ranging from 33.5” to 36.5” (in half inch increments). The standard lie on all Ben Hogan Precision Milled FORGED putters is 70 degrees, but lie angles can be adjusted up to +/- 2.0 degrees flat or upright. Additionally, Ben Hogan Golf has partnered with SuperStroke, the leading putter grip company in the world, to offer golfers a choice of three (3) popular grip styles: Flatso 1.0, MidSlim 2.0, Slim 3.0

Ben Hogan Golf offers a simple, risk-free Demo program, as well as a Trade-UP program where golfers can offset the cost of their purchase by selling used equipment back to the Ben Hogan Golf Equipment Company. The Company reports that over 70% of people who try Ben Hogan Golf equipment via the Demo Program end up buying equipment.

Circling Raven Golf Club Announces Significant Course Enhancements

WORLEY, ID  – Coeur d’Alene Casino Resort Hotel today announces that it has commissioned golf course architect Gene Bates, ASGCA, to develop the master plan for improvements to Circling Raven Golf Club, the award-winning course that is celebrating its 15th Anniversary season this year.

The master plan will guide course enhancements and provide a blueprint for future refinements. Bates’ scope of work may include:

  • Renovating existing sand bunkers;
  • Removing no longer relevant ones;
  • Adding strategically placed new sand bunkers;
  • Leveling existing tees and possibly creating some new ones to change the experience, challenge, and or shot values and aesthetics;
  • Re-grassing greens with a new Bent Grass variety that minimizes Poa Annua grass and its ability to creep into existing turf;
  • Expanding the practice facility experience with additional game-honing opportunities;
  • Exploring the addition of new golf holes adjacent to the practice area; and
  • Identifying an area for destination golf accommodations.

That’s encouraging news for golfers. Circling Raven is offering 15th Anniversary specials in 2019, including exceptional deals on stay-and-play packages, merchandise, instruction, and more.
