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...)

TPT GOLF™ SETS A NEW STANDARD IN GRAPHITE SHAFTS

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.

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.

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...)
