The Golf Elevator…
Keeping your putter high and dry…and clean!
Review by: Ed Stone, Editor/Publisher of www.GoGolfandTravel.com
Every now and then, we get a new invention for the golfer and most of the time we’ll take a pass. But, when the Golf Elevator came to our attention, we said, “OK, let’s take a look and see if this is something the average golfer can use.”
|Michael A. Roy
Inventor of the Golf Elevator
Mike Roy has a passion for solving problems. He is a natural inventor. He stated, “Wherever there’s a problem, there’s an opportunity.”
The Golf Elevator is not his first creative invention. “My first successful invention was for 3M, when I devised a new hot glue adhesive applicator in 1984. Soon after, I created an automated epoxy applicator for them. My first US patent was issued in 1998 for a keel protector for fiberglass boats. My next invention in 2003, was DIY ProCrown—a crown molding system designed to make DIY installation easy with professional-looking results. In 2015, I created a waterproof liner for ski boots called Boot Ducks. And this year, I got my US patent for the Golf Elevator golf club prop,” he told us. (READ MORE...)
Tifosi Optics Launches Track
The following is a communication received from the public relations firm representing Tifosi Optics. We at GoGolfandTravel.com have tested and experienced these awesome glasses. We took them to golf courses in both Florida where the sun is very bright and playing golf sometimes requires you to wear sunglasses. We also took them to Tennessee to see how a different climate and atmosphere would affect these shades. Objectivity is our calling and we call the shots as we see them. These Tifosi Optics are everything they say they are and more. We found them to be stylish, fashionable and very comfortable to wear. The most important features we discovered is that you are able to see your ball or other player's ball in flight. Knowing where the ball lands is important! The other feature that was obvious is the reading of the underlation of greens. Yes, you can better understand the breaks and turns in seeing the green through these glasses. Making more putts is cutting strokes off your game. Do we need to say more?
Trajectory. Travel. Track. Tifosi Optics newest style of golfing sunglasses, Track, are at the forefront of where quality meets affordability. An experienced golfer knows that sunglasses are their secret weapon out on the course. From blinding sunlight to breaks on the greens, Track has you covered. (READ MORE...)
GOLF'S NO. 1 APP ENHANCES PUTT BREAKS
WITH 3D GREENS MAPS AND ONE-TOUCH PUTT READING
Reviewing an application (app) as it relates to golf can be a personal matter as to how much information should or should not be used by one player and not the other when playing the game. We accepted the challenge and used the GolfLogix on several different courses. We all shared the reading of the greens so that all players had access to the same information.
In a rare case, the putting surface had not been mapped by GolfLogix, but the rest of the features worked fine. The graphics use are very clean and easy to read, even in the bright sunlight. All traps, bunkers, lakes, streams, etc. are easy to understand. You are able to move the distance features to the location of your ball or check the distance you need to hit for going over or staying short of a trap, bunker, water or rough. Of course, there are many devices and apps out there to tell you this information.
But...what the others don't have and GolfLogix does is the ability to help you with reading the greens. We all think we can lean over, stoop down, lay on the ground....you get the idea. With GolfLogix, you can stand straight and see where the underlations are for the green. Thus, making you able to putt on a more accurate line to the hole. Let me tell you...it WORKS! Greens that my golf buddies were reading did not compare to the accuracy of GolfLogix. Where some holes may have the slant to the right from viewing with the eye, the app tells you otherwise. And, you better believe the GolfLogix app. Of course, you definately need to be able to putt where the correct line is given by the app. (READ THE FULL REVIEW AND INFORMATION...)

TPT GOLF™ SETS A NEW STANDARD IN GRAPHITE SHAFTS
RENENS, SWITZERLAND - TPT Golf™ announced a new range of graphite golf shafts that debuted during the 2017 PGA Merchandise Show.

Bloodline Golf Launches R1-J Blade Putter
Featuring Revolutionary Technology
Bloodline is proud to announce the introduction of its innovative Bloodline R1-J Blade putter which was played in the U.S. Open at Erin Hills this past week. Although the Bloodline brand only launched earlier this year, both their putter models have now been played on the PGA TOUR by players who have multiple major championship wins.

The game-changing R1-J Blade allows a player to clearly see where the putter is aligned because they can walk behind it while it stands alone on the green.

Bloodline’s putter technology conforms to the Rules of Golf. (READ MORE...)
swingOIL...Get Loose and Swing Smooth TM
A few weeks ago, GoGolfandTravel.com received a box of 24 packages of swingOIL from one of our communication sources in the golfing industry. SwingOIL, is not your basic “power tonic” that gives you a kick or boost for an hour or so. This liquid really works and works and works. Yes, at first we were a bit reluctant to even consider reviewing a product of this nature for a golfing and travel website. But, I said…let’s give it a try and see what happens.
So, with what I call my Wednesday golfing group, I distributed a package to each of the 12 players, including myself. All of us are over 60 and we all have some kind or ache or pain…all of us! I ask them to test swingOIL and let me know what they thought about this 3 ounce drink that comes in a foil-like package. We all decided to drink it over ice and allow the ice to melt allowing for a very pleasant tasting drink while we warmed up on the driving range and putting green. Later on, we decided to take the remaining packages and put them in the refrigerator so we could drink from the pouch it comes in. (PLEASE READ MORE...)
AIR FORCE ONE INTRODUCES AIR FOIL FAIRWAY WOODS
PALM DESERT, CA - Air Force One has unveiled its exciting new Air Foil fairway woods.
Offered in a 15-degree 3-wood and 19-degree 5-wood, the Air Foil features technology that helps shots get airborne quickly and easily. Because fairway woods generally sport a shallower clubface, their trampoline effect is reduced. The Air Foil's dual slot wave design, however, creates an accordion effect: The thin face flexes inward at impact, initiating the buildup of Nitrogen pressure inside the clubhead. Then a trampoline effect takes place, as the face is thrust back to its original position at a high velocity to generate rocketing ball speed and increased distance. The club design increases how fast the face flexes at impact, promoting faster ball speed across the face, which promotes consistently longer distance on every swing. The dual slot wave design creates a high launch angle with a tight dispersion, making an ideal fairway wood design for players who have difficulty hitting a 3-wood off the fairway. To further enhance shot performance, the nitrogen valve is positioned to increase MOI and create an optimum launch angle. (READ MORE...)
Air Force One Unveils Its Outstanding
AFX Game Improvement Set Of Irons For Any Golfer
…and, The Price Is Under $400!
Reviewing golf products at GoGolfandTravel.com is serious business. We do not take these items as a gift or incentive to say something good about golf equipment, fashions, etc. If they are great, we say they are great and tell you why. If not so great, we’ll call it like we see it.
We offered to review the new set of “Game Improvement Irons” from Air Force One (AFO). When opening the package, we were most impressed with the look and feel of the 8 golf clubs. They came as pitching wedge, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4 & 3 hybrid. Before taking these beauties to the course, we wanted to know the cost. For what we were seeing and feeling the $399 price tag had us wondering if they would play just as well or better than ones we’ve reviewed approaching $1,000. We’ll see! (READ MORE....)
Muira KM-007 Mallet Putter
...A Sure-Fire Stroke Cutter!
To golfers, the putter is a personal thing. It takes time to get use to using a putter and usually nearly one-half of your score is based on how well you putt.
Taking on the Miura KM-007 mallet putter became a very serious assignment for those of us at GoGolfandTravel.com. There are literally hundreds of putters on the market. So, how do we give one putter a review without taking on others? But, we did.
For the first half-dozen balls I struck, the distance to the hole was short compared to the white hot I’m accustomed. However, after a dozen or so putts, there was no comparison to the solid feel the KM-007 delivered. I like the shape, the look, the feel and the positive response the KM-007 mallet putter gave me within less than 10 minutes on the putting green.
The KM-007 Miura mallet putter is the fourth of five putters they offer. The KM stands for the company’s founder, Katsuhiro Miura. He begins the creation as all Miura putters using a billet of the finest quality of low-carbon steel. Once forged into the proper raw shape, the KM-007 mallet is computer-numeric controlled and milled into an elegant mallet-shaped design to please the eye of players looking for some heft behind the ball.

The New Hybrid Wedge From Black Magic Golf
(For GoGolfandTravel readers, use the
CODE: hybrid wedge when you place an order, you will receive FREE SHIPPING.)
Seems like every time we open an e-mail, golf magazine or watch a commercial on the Golf Channel, we see a new and improved golf club. At GoGolfandTravel.com we receive a lot of opportunities to test or review golf clubs. In most cases we’ll take on the challenge to see what works and what doesn’t. Recently we received a 55 degree HWedge from Black Magic Golf…the H stands for hybrid.
The HWedge offers a great face forward design in a wedge allowing you to hit higher shots within distances you would be accustomed from other wedges. Except, the HWedge is so much easier to hit and come through the shot. The hybrid body of this club gives you better spin and control of the ball when you need to go over a bunker or forced carry near the green. (READ MORE ABOUT THIS HWedge...)

New fitness tracker has your back, literally.
On average a person walks about 8,000-10,000 steps a day, adding up to 115,000 miles in a lifetime. Tracking steps is great for weight watchers, but what if their walk is wrong?
Introducing Zikto Walk, a new kind of wearable technology that counts steps, tracks 7200 data points per minute to monitor and recommend improvements to posture with a sleek, fashionable wristband. Not only does Zikto Walk help walkers correct their posture while they walk, it generates a workout plan to improve posture based on the user’s individual walking patterns.
According to walking expert Jonathan FitzGordon, incorrect walking posture has been linked to back and neck pain, knee pain, shoulder pain and sciatica, as well as to stress and low self-esteem (there’s a reason we admire people with “backbone,” and that no one wants to be called a “slouch”). Zikto Walk uses advanced technology and cutting edge design to empower people with information to improve their health and their body language. (READ MORE AND ORDER...)
Sight Ball...Golf’s ONLY On Ball Training/Alignment Aide
A Review & Information From GoGolfandTravel.com
We at GoGolfandTravel.com receive all kinds of golfing information, tips, products, etc. From time to time, we like to do some testing and checking of products to see if they live up to the claims made by the marketing message. When the Sight Ball arrived, we thought this might be something to explore and pass on to our reader…be it good or not so good.
First we took the Sight Ball to the putting green to see if it helped in anyways to keep the ball on line to the hole. By lining up the Sight Ball to the direction you need to putt, given undulations, etc., it worked! Not being the greatest putter, but a fairly good one, we were able to sink about 75 percent. Passed this test. (READ MORE...)
GoGolfandTravel.com Reviews...Swing Catalyst By Initial Force AS
In the past few years, GoGolfandTravel.com has become more and more involved with providing reviews about different kinds of golf and travel products. When we discovered the Swing Catalyst was available, we did some research and decided to provide our readers with a review.
What we discovered is something we feel almost any golfer interested in improving their game will be interested in this FREE application for your iPhone. Upfront, let me tell you this app is not yet available for the android phone, only the iPhone and iPad. Your iPad will need to have the iOS7 or later to run the program. Go to the Apple Store and you can download the upgrade for free. I would highly suspect that most golfers have one or the other and probably both.
In speaking with several of our teaching professionals, we discovered they were very familiar with the app and most use it in one form or the other. From the teaching aspect, they prefer using the iPad because of the screen size. In our testing, we came to the same conclusion. Yes, if you have an iPhone, you will want it on your cell for the convenience. (READ MORE...)

GoGolfandTravel.com Reviews Polara Golf’s New Advantage Driver
We were invited to “test” the new Advantage Driver made by Polara Golf. Reading the material that accompanied the stylish black driver, it promises to reduce hooks and slices up to 75%. It also touts that the club is designed to be the Longest Hitting Driver in Golf. Now who would’nt want to reduce hooks and slices as well as hit the golf ball further off the tee? I would!
Upon arriving at our headquarters in Tennessee where we overlook the 18th green of a beautiful golf course, I decided to stroll to the driving range some 150 yards away and give the Polara Advantage Driver a test. Now, I must admit I did receive a dozen Polara Ultimate Straight and XDS golf balls…promoted as the “World’s Only Self-Correcting Golf Balls.” They are sold as part of “the fix” to hooks and slices. No, I did not use the dozen balls on the range…but, later I did on the course. (READ MORE...)

ClubCrown offered for us to test an applique of an emblem or logo on the clubface of my TaylorMade driver. I was a bit apprehensive. Sort of like putting a tattoo on your forehead and walking up to your best buddy who doesn’t like tattoos. I agreed to have my University of Georgia logo applied to the top of my “Burner.” (Read More...)

VANCOUVER, British Columbia -- Miura Golf has released its new SIT-460 driver, the Japanese company's biggest driver yet. Its large volume offers the benefits of a big-headed driver while its careful design offers a compact look not often found in such clubs.
The SIT-460 (SIT stands for Strong & Ideal Trajectory) has an all-titanium head with a volume of 460 cubic centimeters, the maximum size allowed by the Rules of Golf. But patient and careful shaping by Shinei Miura, son of company founder and legendary club maker Katsuhiro Miura, has yielded a head that offers the golfer a much more compact look at address than other 460 cc drivers.
