Sweet Stuff

Golf Vacations - - NEWS - by Terry Ross


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.
