Sweating and sweat stains are two things that golfers would rather do without. Not only is it irritating to the eyes and face, it is no fun when your favorite hat takes a beating from a day on the links and you end up throwing it away with stains.
Now there is an innovative disposable liner for hats called NoSweat, and the technology is designed to lock sweat inside, provide a clean dry surface, and prevent sweat from dripping in your eyes.
Currently, athletes across all of the pro leagues and every NHL official is using this product, according to company--and they have endorsement deals with athletes that play for the NHL, NFL, MLB, and PGA Tour as well as drivers that race with both Formula One and NASCAR.
The hat liner that this company makes (they also have helmet and hard hat liners for those uses) is easy to install and very effective in absorbing forehead sweat and keeping perspiration out of the line of vision. These peel and stick liners lock and seal sweat inside the core of the liner, allowing the surface of the product to be completely dry, even when it is fully saturated.
NoSweat keeps perspiration out of the eyes, helps prevent skin irritation and reduces sweat stains as this patented technology wicks away sweat by pulling it into the product, keeping the user sweat free with a clean dry surface. These liners are easy to install and replace--and make that souvenir hat from that favorite resort something you can wear for years to come.

Practice aids come in all shapes, sizes and degree of difficulty when it comes to using them. But sometimes simplicity is the key element and the HackersRX has taken that cue from many products on the market to combine several practice tools into one, small easy-to-use device.
Invented and patented by Dr. Dick Miller—a retired periodontal surgeon—the HackersRX is what he calls the “prescription for proper practice.” This training aid consists of three adjustable telescoping alignment rods anchored on each end by a plastic golf ball. It folds to less than 10 inches in length and is lighter than a sleeve of balls, so is perfect to store in a golf bag accessory pocket.
The unique aspect of this practice aid is that it is very multifunctional and excellent for use on the range, on the practice green or in a practice bunker. The key fundamentals of golf—aim, stance and ball position—can all be improved by doing drills with the HackersRX. It can be unfolded to a “T” configuration and is adjustable for a variety of club and stance positions, such as setting up for a draw or a fade. You can even adjust the rods to help with achieving the proper take-away angle and visualizing it during practice.
The 15-page illustrated How-to-Guide that the company supplies on-line to go with the HackersRX is well-done and supplies an array of uses for it-- including drills for improving ball position, flighting the ball, drawing the ball, fading the ball, hitting pitch shots, chips shots, bunker and lop/flop shots—as well as improving the putting stroke.
“This is one of the best teaching aids I have ever used,” noted Leonard Thompson, who has played in more than 1065 Tour events
over a 40-year career and has won six titles. “It will help players at every level. Compact and very easy to carry in your golf bag. All in all, a device I would recommend to any golfer who is interested in improving quickly.”
HackersRx can be found in many specialty and pro shops in the US and internationally; and on the web at: www. HackersRX.com
Troon International App
Troon golf, which lays claim to being the largest golf course management company in the world, now is offering a new app for smartphones that will allow users to book tee times at the company’s rapidly expanding portfolio of international properties.
The app will initially concentrate on offering opportunities to secure rounds at Troon International venues within the UAE, Bahrain, Egypt and India, with plans to eventually encompass all 44 Troon International managed facilities across Europe, Asia-Pacific, the Middle East and Africa.
The app, titled ‘Troon International’, will allow golfers a quick and easy method for booking tee times and will offer a simplified process and an instant comparison across the different venues the company has to offer.
“We are extremely excited to release this new app, which will allow golfers in the UAE and beyond a simple and straightforward way to book their tee times with us at one of our outstanding golf courses,” noted Mark Chapleski, President Troon International. “Considerable thought has gone into this and we are very happy with the end result.
“We know that apps are becoming increasingly popular as a method of booking tee times and this development demonstrates our commitment to offering our consumers a more modern and much simpler approach to booking their golf.”
In addition to the app, Troon International has also launched a new website at international .troonteetimes. com which offers easy functionality and allows golfers to book multiple rounds at Troon International courses in one basket. To plan their golfing itineraries, website users can filter Troon International managed golf courses by course name, location, nearby hotels and book play and stay packages.
Each course includes a full description on the site, providing detailed information on the layout and local attractions that surround it, along with an extensive list of general amenities that each one offers, from the delivery of corporate events to the quality of practice facilities available. Further courses from within the Troon International portfolio will be added over time.
Troon Golf is headquartered in Scottsdale, Arizona and manages more than 270 golf courses around the world. Troon International is rapidly expanding from its offices in Geneva, Switzerland and Dubai in the UAE.
