SWEETSTUFF

Golf Vacations - - Boot Ranch Golf Course -

The con­trol and smooth feel of the TPT shafts are very ev­i­dent from ev­ery-day stock shafts that come stan­dard on even the best driver mod­els. While most play­ers would not hit the 15-LKP-LTLW model that Day uses in his driver, TPT does of­fer an ar­ray of other de­signs such as the 17 LKP MT SW that comes in at a light, 55 grams and is per­fect for more mod­er­ate swing speeds.

“With a prop­erly fit TPT Golf shaft, golfers are go­ing to con­tact the sweet spot more of­ten due to its more ax­i­ally con­sis­tent de­sign,” added Se­bayang. “They will also likely swing our shafts a lit­tle faster be­cause of their op­ti­mized bend pro­files. It’s this com­bi­na­tion of more con­sis­tent im­pacts and our op­ti­mized bend­ing pro­files that re­sults in sig­nif­i­cant dis­tance gains and a tighter dis­per­sion.

“In fit­tings around the world, TPT Golf shafts have proven to pro­vide golfers of all abil­i­ties with ad­di­tional club head speed and ball speed. With our au­to­mated golf shaft man­u­fac­tur­ing method, we have been able to over­come the in­con­sis­ten­cies of con­ven­tional graphite shafts that have been plagu­ing golfers for decades.”

And, ex­plained Se­bayang, TPT Golf shafts are not sold on­line. Be­ing prop­erly fit is cru­cial to op­ti­miz­ing the per­for­mance of a TPT Golf shaft. Af­ter a fit­ting, most golfers find that the best TPT Golf shaft for their game is a dif­fer­ent model than they an­tic­i­pated.

Weath­er­man Um­brella

One of the most in­no­va­tive new prod­ucts avail­able to the golf­ing pub­lic helps solve a prob­lem that has ex­isted since the very be­gin­nings of the game hun­dreds of years ago— and with a high-tech flair.

Pre­dict­ing the rain and pro­tec­tion from the el­e­ments is as old as the game it­self, but the Weath­er­man um­brella can take care of both is­sues in one pack­age. Re­cently named as the Of­fi­cial Um­brella of the LPGA Tour, this state-of-the art um­brella is used by se­lect LPGA play­ers, rules of­fi­cials and staff. Even World Golf Hall of Fame mem­ber Julie Inkster has been added to the ros­ter of play­ers who will be car­ry­ing this um­brella dur­ing LPGA events.

For starters, the Weath­er­man is a sturdy but light top-qual­ity um­brella made of In­dus­trial-strength fiber­glass that prevents break­ing and in­vert­ing--and its vented canopies can with­stand winds up to 55 mph. Te­flon-coated fab­ric keeps golfers dry and the UPF 50+ bar­rier pro­vides pro­tec­tion from the sun.

One of the great fea­tures that most play­ers will ap­pre­ci­ate is the large mesh pocket on the in­side of the canopy that of­fers a dry stor­age com­part­ment for gloves and a scorecard, while a sil­i­conecoated, non-slip rib is the per­fect place to hang a towel. The fastdry­ing fab­ric is an­other nice touch, and the re­flec­tive strip around the edges stands out in the dark.

But the real tech­nol­ogy in this um­brella is in the Weath­er­man mo­bile app that synchs with the Blue­tooth tracker that is the size of a sil­ver dol­lar and fits into a spe­cial com­part­ment in the um­brella. The app also pro­vides com­pre­hen­sive weather fore­casts for mul­ti­ple, cus­tom­iz­a­ble lo­ca­tions and allows you to lo­cate your um­brella if you ever leave it be­hind. Weath­er­man was con­ceived by na­tion­ally rec­og­nized me­te­o­rol­o­gist Rick Re­ich­muth af­ter years in the field cov­er­ing se­vere weather events, who wanted some­thing that would warn him of in­com­ing storms and pro­vide shel­ter.

Weath­er­man’s unique fea­tures led Golf Di­gest to name it “Best Um­brella” for 2018 in its third an­nual Ed­i­tor’s Choice Awards. The limited-edi­tion LPGA co-branded Weath­er­man um­brel­las are avail­able in 62 inches in white and 68 inches in navy and ex­hibit the LPGA logo on the canopy. The col­lab­o­ra­tion sup­ports the LPGA Foun­da­tion, with $5 from each sale ben­e­fit­ing the or­ga­ni­za­tion’s mis­sion of em­pow­er­ing women and young peo­ple through the game of golf.

The foun­da­tion has ben­e­fit­ted more than 300,000 peo­ple since 1991 through var­i­ous schol­ar­ship and fi­nan­cial as­sis­tance pro­grams, along with its flag­ship ju­nior golf pro­gram, LPGA*USGA Girls Golf.

“We are thrilled to join the LPGA as the of­fi­cial um­brella,” said Re­ich­muth, who is the Weath­er­man founder and CEO. “Many of our cus­tomers and em­ploy­ees are huge golf fans, and we are in­cred­i­bly proud to sup­port their pas­sion, as well as the elite women golfers from around the world who truly ex­cel at their sport.”

The um­brella is avail­able for pur­chase at www.weath­er­manum­brella.com/lpga, with a por­tion of the pro­ceeds ben­e­fit­ing the LPGA Foun­da­tion.
