Adidas Golf to Reward Aces with Free Shoes

Groupmipowerband shot To mark the introduction of its next-generation Powerband 3.0 shoes at the Waste Management Phoenix Open this week, Adidas Golf is providing fans with an actual reason to shout “in the hole” at the par-3 16th.

The company will give away 10,000 free pairs of Powerbands if either Kenny Perry or Pat Perez—its sponsored professionals—makes an ace on the stadium par 3. Fans must register at the Adidas website in order to be eligible.

The Powerband 3.0, which retails for $140,  incorporates Adidas’s new “thin tech” design, which the company says brings golfers closer to the ground for greater stability and balance.

What are the odds of one of these pros making an ace? Various studies have tried to ascertain the chances of  making a hole in one, from 45,000-to-1 for the typical golfer to about 3,000-to-1 for a PGA Tour professional. Either way, those are long odds, but better than the lottery.

Pat Perez's Winning Bag

Posted at 10:01 AM by David Dusek

Patperez_450x600 TaylorMade released its new, adjustable R9 driver last Monday, and Pat Perez and 12 other pros had one in their bags at the Bob Hope Classic, making it the most-used driver at the event.

When he was asked about his new driver, here's what Perez had to say:

I'm not just saying this because I play it, but I'm telling you it's the best driver I've ever hit. And I've tried a lot. It's got the screw-in at the bottom, you screw the shaft in deal. I got it on Monday, I told the guy I had to try this thing. ... It's unbelievable.

According to TaylorMade, Perez set his R9 with a face that is 1° open with the lie angle set between neutral and right.

Here is a complete list of the clubs Perez used to shoot rounds of 61-63-67-67-69 and earn his first PGA Tour win:

Driver:                    TaylorMade R9 (8.5°)
Fairway woods:     TaylorMade Burner (14.5°)
Hybrid:                   TaylorMade Rescue TP (19°)
Irons:                      TaylorMade rac Forged MB (3-9)
Wedges:                 TaylorMade rac (47°), Titleist Vokey Spin Milled (54°, 60°)
Putter:                    Odyssey White Hot XG #7
Ball:                        Titleist Pro V1x (2009 version)
