How To Travel With Your Golf Clubs

Traveling with golf clubs can sometimes be a bit of a daunting task with airline regulations and fees it sometimes makes you just want to rent the club bags. For those of you who understand parting with your golf clubs is unimaginable here are the best ways to travel with your golf clubs.

The two most basic travel cases are hard cases or soft travel covers. Both are allowed by airline regulations it’s just a matter or cost and comfort which one is right for you. If you really can’t decide some companies even make a hybrid golf bag which has a hard cover on top for maximum club protection and soft cover on the bottom half for easy rolling.

A hard case bag is the most protective of your precious cargo. While nothing will get rattled by the airlines these hard cover cases are a bit cumbersome to lug around. A downside is fitting more than one of these into a standard car is near impossible. With a soft case your able to fold it up and take it out of the way once you have left the airport.

Soft cases are a great way to travel. The biggest point of purchase is to make sure it has enough padding and easy to roll with wheels. Also adding extra padding around your clubs is always a good idea.

Here are some of the best golf club travel covers I found online.

A few tips while traveling weight your bag before you leave to make sure its not over the airlines specified weight limit. If you happen to have extra room and weight to add throw in a few pairs of shoes or your liquids so you can check them through (makes traveling much easier). Make sure all your clubs have covers on them you don’t want them banging around.  If you don’t have all the covers for your clubs try socks it’s a great alternative.

Golf’s Latest Putter Trend

First there was the domination of the white golf clubs now it seems to have taken a turn to the long putter. Dominating the Tour this August with consecutive wins by Adam Scott, Keegan Bradley and now Webb Simpson, the long putter seems to be a staple on the leaderboard. Even before their glory days of winning they were stirring up controversy. This is of course because with the extension of the club it allows the golfers to anchor the club on their body. While most purist golfers find this an abomination others just enjoy the feel and confidence this brings them. The belly putter is said to simplify the fundamentals of putting so those players who have inconsistencies and other issues will probably be the one’s making the switch to this latest fad.

The latest victim in the long putter takeover was this weekends victor at the Wyndham Championship, Webb Simpson. Simpson’s trusty putter is a PING Craz-E belly putter. While this may just having people talking about the new putter style there is no evidence that players are actively switching to the new putting style due to the August PGA Tour wins.

Ping G20 Driver Release

Ping waited almost 2 years to unveil a new G series driver and finally the G15 was upgraded to the G20.  The first glimpse of this driver was at the St. Jude Classic where Ping Tour staff member showed it off during the practice rounds. Ping showed off the entire G20 series when they opened up their 2012 sales meeting to fans via online venues such as Twitter and Facebook. The G20 driver makes it’s debut into golf stores tomorrow, August 11th.

This driver lends itself to be the perfect blend of forgiveness and power. Changes from its predecessor include a heavier head weigh and improved Titanium material that has a ratio of Ti 8-1-1. This accounts for better clubhead strength and more manageable weight ratio. The external weighting pads add better launch conditions and balance to the driver.

Need the new Ping G20 Driver? You can order it at my favorite online golf retailer GolfClubs.com
