Taylormade-tp-wedge_640
The new Tour Preferred wedges from TaylorMade ($129) were designed by industry veteran Clay Long in combination with the company's extensive Tour staff. The result is two different sole grinds that will appeal to the full gamut of players: 

Classic Grind: Aimed at players who want a traditional design and shape. Available in 50, 52, 54, 56, 58, and 60-degree models with tour-proven bounce options. Features include slight progressive camber that increases with loft, ample heel relief, and Micro Texture face for enhnaced spin and control. 

ATV Grind: Based on the previous ATV design but with an improved, slightly narrower sole design. The new and improved shape provides less bounce on full shots and sand shots but maintains higher bounce performance on open-face shots. Available in 54, 56, 58, and 60-degree models, all with the same Micro Texture face as the Classic Grind. 

The Classic Grind will be available on 4/18 while the ATV Grind hits retail on 6/15.

Justin Rose got to Augusta National early this year to prepare for the first major of 2014. The 2013 U.S. Open champion is looking for his second major title this week, and he'll try anything to improve his chances, including possibly putting the new TaylorMade SLDR Mini driver in his bag.

Rose instagrammed a photo collage of the club with the following caption: "Been working with the amazing NEW @taylormadegolf #Mini driver this week, may have the #SLDR and #Mini driver in the bag at Augusta. Will keep you posted during the week. #LoftUp."

The new TaylorMade club is 260cc as compared to the 460cc SLDR driver and the 150cc SLDR 3-wood, and comes with a 43.5" shaft. It is designed as a 3-wood replacement for the player that desires the distance of a driver but the accuracy of a 3-wood off the tee and was first spotted on the range at this year's WGC-Cadillac Championship.

You can learn more about the SLDR Mini in the video below:

The TaylorMade SLDR Mini driver can be pre-ordered here for $279.99.

True Linkswear Masters Wingtip Golf Shoes

Posted at 11:42 AM by Michael Chwasky | Categories: Golf Shoes, Masters, True Linkswear

Ture-masters-shoe-NEW_640
In celebration of the first major championship of the year, True linkswear has introduced a limited edition shoe called the True gent wingtip ($149). Featuring a combination of traditional style with True's unique Flex-Feel outsole, heavily cushioned heel and wide toe box that allows the foot to function naturally through the swing, the True gent is geared specifically for the Masters. 

“There are several iconic stops on the PGA TOUR each year, and with spring upon us and a revamped line of shoes at our disposal, this was a great opportunity to do something really fun and really creative,” said Jeremy Moore, president of the company. “Given the tradition and history of the season’s first major, we knew the TRUE gent was the perfect shoe from our collection to really celebrate it.”

Other features of the True gent wingtip include premium leather construction, 360-degree waterproof performance, and a faux heel that looks more like a traditional shoe but still provides True's "zero drop," advantage of having the foot close to the ground.

Othe features of the Fred Couples Ashworth major series shirt include a button that displays the date of Freddie's Masters victory, a limited edition majors series patch on the right sleeve, and Freddie's signature embroidered on the inside of the neck.

Bubba Watson and Zach Johnson's Oakley Masters gear

Posted at 6:43 PM by Michael Chwasky | Categories: Bubba Watson, Masters, Oakley, Zach Johnson

Everyone's getting amped up for Augusta next week, including Oakley's two main men, Bubba Watson and Zach Johnson. Check out their scripts for next week - look's like Bubba is going for a bit more color while Zach will be a bit more subdued, which makes sense. Though Oakley is probably best known for hi-tech eyewear like the golf specific Fast Jacket model (outfitted with G30 lenses) that Zach wears, high performance clothing is also up their alley, at least according to Bubba. 

“I want to look good and have no restrictions in my swing,” says Bubba. “I swing the club at 126 mph, and the new Oakley Swing Engineered Technology really allows me to move freely and crush every drive!”

Here's Bubba:
