Go Time Golf Presents - FedEx Cup 2015

Go Time Golf Presents: A Look at the 2015 FedEx Cup 

It's Go Time for The PGA Playoffs!

It's hard to believe that the 2015 PGA Season is coming to an end. It's been a season of records, first time winners, multiple winners, changes in who's number one in the world and yes a win by DL3! This season provided crazy finishes, numerous playoffs, aces that paid mortgages, the controversy of Chambers Bay, a Major Chase by Jordan Spieth that may never happen again, a struggling Tiger, a comeback Tiger and much more! So, now that the "PGA Playoffs" tee it up what will we see?

Will Jordan Spieth (World's #1) take charge and bring home another $10 million to go with his $10 million in winnings? Has the Jordan - Rory rivalry started? Will it continue? Who will dominate in The final 4 events? It's there for the taking and the odds appear to be in Jordan's favor!

Will Rory make a statement the he is the Player to Beat now and in the future? Is his ankle 100% and is his game ready for the playoffs? We believe he is motivated, focused, determined and ready to take home The FedEx Cup. Everyone wants a Rory/Jordan Shootout especially RORY! Will he "Hang On" and retake The #1 in The World Status?

What about Jason Day? Did his "Major Victory" give him the confidence he needs to take home The FedEx Cup Too? His game appears to be at a level none of us have seen from Jason! Will the Jordan/Rory rivalry have a 3rd participant? Will that last Sunday of the playoffs be Jason's Day?

Then there's World's number 4 - Bubba! He has all the "shot" to win The FedEx Cup, owns a couple of Green Jackets and hits it a L...O...N...G.... way. I know there are Bubba lovers and haters out there but the bottom line... he's a winner! We think he will be a big factor in deciding the FedEx Cup winner. If he putts well (doesn't start walking before putt is struck) he could add a FedEx Cup to his collection!

So, there's your Top 4 in the World but let's not forget Justin Rose, Jim Furyk, DJ, Rickie and the rest of those who all have a chance of taking The FedEx Cup home. With the "tweaking" of the points we know that anyone can win it if they play well. The days of Camilo winning 2 events and Vijay "just needing to finish are over! THANK YOU FEDEX!

We hope you enjoy The Playoffs and please let us know who your favorites & long shots are!
Also, stay tuned for our Contests beginning next week!

Thanks & it's Go Time!

Review: Orange Whip Trainer - Go Time Golf

Go Time Golf Review: Orange Whip Swing Trainer Go Time Members Save $10.00

Name of Manufacture: Orange Whip Trainer   OrangeWhipTrainer.com

Name of Product: The Orange Whip Trainer
Overview: I'm sure you've seen this training aid on the practice range at several PGA events and I personally owned one several years ago until my son kindly forgot to return it to my bag. The Orange Whip Swing Trainer is the premier way to Get Ready To Play! 
I had the honor of meeting with Jim Hackenberg, the founder of Orange Whip, to get a complete education on their entire lineup of products. Jim has an enormous Passion for The Game and wants to help every golfer at every level improve their game. We introduced Jim to the team at Peter Kostis Golf Academy and immediately Jim furnished them with various Orange Whip Products to test and use at their sessions. 

They offer: 47.5"/1.75lbs, mid-size 43.5/1.70lbs, Compact 39.5/1.60lbs, Junior 38"/1.30lbs, The Orange Peel and The Orange Whip Putting Wand!
Orange Whip States: Every golfer wants to play better golf. The problem is that their athletic ability is often underutilized, affecting their power and consistency on the golf course. Orange Whip has created products that accelerate the learning process by providing swing feedback that you cannot get from your golf clubs. You have heard the golf terms rhythm, balance, tempo, and timing. Orange Whip delivers a feeling to these words, achieving our mission: to help every golfer find their best golf swing possible.
Now, it's Go Time for our review on the 47.5"/1.75lb Orange Whip Trainer.
Pros: The Orange Whip Swing Trainer can be used anywhere to build a better swing, optimize tempo, increase flexibility, improve balance and ingrain a proper swing through muscle memory. The feedback is immediate and it's simple to use! 

Cons: The 47.5" Orange Whip Trainer weighs in at 1.75lbs and may not be great for everyone due to length and weight. However, we are sure one of their other models will be excellent for you! Also, at first, extended use of The Orange Whip may cause muscle soreness the first few days!
Performance & Playability: The first few swings with The Orange Whip will make you notice it's heavy, has "whip" to it, has a grip "counter weight" and really gets you moving forward on your front foot to a full finish. The Orange Whip is a perfect way to get loose and engage all the muscles needed in a great golf swing. It will increase your shoulder turn and deliver you to a "pro" position on your follow-thru. Once warmed up the our focus moved to a balanced and in tempo swing. Orange Whip provides numerous exercises to build a better golf swing and there are many videos available as well. We found that making left handed golf swings was both challenging and fun. However, after a few days my swing was noticeably better which says a lot about the product. If a right handed golfer can produce a semi smooth swing left handed just think what this product would do for a new golfer!

Innovation: Jim and The Orange Whip Team have spent years perfecting this product! They have tested different materials, flexes, weights, grips and more. I believe that their current lineup of products are second to none!
Looks & Feel: When you first swing an Orange Whip it may feel awkward, look different and make it hard to complete a "perfect" swing. That's GREAT - it's the Swing Trainer telling you that your swing needs some help! I gave it to a higher handicap player that has an extreme problem hanging back on his right foot in his golf swing. After 15 minutes of using The Orange Whip he went back to his clubs - his balance and finish position was much better! He said "I have fought that issue for many years and can't believe that The Orange Whip taught me the feeling of transferring my weight in just 15 minutes"! 
That's The Real Feeling we are talking about!

Go Time Golf Factor: Of all the Swing Trainers I have tested the Orange Whip has stayed in my bag! I use it at home, pre-round, share it with friends and encourage you to give it a Go! You will be happy you did! It's GO TIME! Hands down one of the best training aids available! Try it - Buy it - Get Ready To Play... BETTER!
PS- be sure it's still in your bag at the end of the day especially if you're teeing it up with anyone that you let try it!

Review: Worlds Hottest Drivers - Go Time Golf

Go Time Golf Review:  GoTimeGolf.com  Go Time Golf Members SAVE 10%

Name of Manufacturer: World’s Hottest Drivers   WorldsHottestDrivers.com
Name of Product: SuperCharge Your Driver Now!
Tested: Taylormade SLDR Driver shaved to .880 COR
Overview: World’s Hottest Drivers specialize in shaving the face of drivers to increase the C.O.R. (Coefficient of Restitution). This precise milling process allows them to hold extremely tight tolerances and increase the club’s C.O.R. from .860 to .900 based on the player’s needs. Now, is it legal? No. The “Legal” C.O.R. and maximum limit any driver may have according to USGA .830. However, for any weekend golfer looking to add distance off the tee this process is for you! Most golfers (based on swing speed) will gain 20-40 yards on their drives.
Pros: If you wish to gain distance off the tee immediately pack your driver up, ship it to World’s Hottest Drivers, select how “HOT” you want your driver based on your current swing speed and wait for the driver to arrive! World’s Hottest Drivers also offer the latest top drivers pre-shaved and ready to deliver!
Cons: You are now in possession of a driver that is no longer legal based on USGA Standards. There is a risk whenever you play a "shaved" driver of the face cracking.       Your playing partners may ask you to move back a set of tees.
Performance & Playability: We met with Steve Mummert at World’s Hottest Drivers, gave him a Taylormade SLDR for shaving and it was quickly returned for testing. They shaved this driver to .880 COR and also re-grooved the face for us. Our first test was on the range and while it was 10-20 yards longer we couldn’t wait to get it on the course! Off the first tee – an increase of 20-25 yards longer than any drive that I have hit on this hole! The longer drives continued throughout my round and the accuracy of the driver was not affected at all!
Innovation: World’s Hottest Drivers performs this process with the use of a CNC machine that allows them to program the outline of the clubface to maintain the original curvature while it is being machined. The clubface will then be polished to match its original finish. All of the work is performed on the outside of the club. Each driver’s face thickness will be measured at 5 different points before being placed on the CNC machine. The finished thickness will be measured at those same 5 points to ensure the desired specs have been obtained.
Technology: Since 2006, World’s Hottest Drivers has been pioneering the science of golf driver machining. Their research and technology development team has tested nearly every driver produced on this planet, to find that perfect balance of performance and durability. Regardless what driver brand/model you send them, they know exactly how to unleash its full potential.
Looks & Feel: Our test driver had a “black coating” on the face and we did lose that but for the added yards off the tee it really didn’t matter! The driver just feels/sounds “Hot” and everyone who has hit it agrees - it’s LONG! I did notice a slightly higher ball flight but that can be changed with settings on the SLDR to produce the optimal trajectory/distance.

Go Time Golf Factor: Most amateur golfers want to hit the ball further and if you’re one of those golfers Steve at World’s Hottest Drivers will be your new best friend. Your round of golf starts on the first tee and adding distance is something that the majority of golfers are looking for. When you’re hitting a 9 iron into the green instead of a 6 or 7 iron birdies are in your future! We are extremely satisfied with World’s Hottest Drivers knowledge of the process, consultative approach to assisting golfers and most of all the results of the finished product! We will send them a 3 wood next so there’s a better chance of getting home in two on par 5s! It’s Go Time for World’s Hottest Drivers!

Review: Major Chase Golf Glove - Go Time Golf

Go Time Golf Review     www.GoTimeGolf.com

Name of Manufacturer: Major Chase www.MajorChase.com

Name of Product:  Major Chase 100% Cabretta Sheep Skin Leather

Tested: Major Chase Golf Glove

Overview: We were referred to Bob Rosberg (owner) of Major Chase through a member of Go Time Golf. After talking to Bob it was obvious that he has a deep passion for golf and for his products. As he stated "Major Chase is "The Glove The Players Love to Wear".
They offer 60, yes I said, 60 sizes in their Custom square or oval logo gloves. They can handle any size orders and allow clients to order an assortment of sizes. After doing some research we began our partnership. I couldn't wait to get the Go Time Golf Custom Logo 100% Cabretta Sheep Skin Leather Gloves! 
So, now it's Go Time at the course to put their product through the testing!

Looks: After sending our logo to Major Chase we couldn't wait to see the final product! When we opened the box.... we were extremely excited! The logo looked awesome, it was a great representation of our brand and we immediately sent/gave them to our members for their feedback. Major Chase Delivered!

Innovation: Major Chase spent a long time looking for the right material, right logo process, right feel, right durability, right price and much more before they made a decision to enter into the golf glove market. Bob also explained that he personally bought many gloves on the market to determine how Major Chase Gloves could be better than all! I believe they are on track to become The Custom Glove of Choice for Golfers and Companies who are looking to grow their brand with a great product!

Performance & Playability: When it comes to gloves everyone wants a great feel when your hand meets the club and Major Chase provides just that! The thickness of the glove plays an important role in how the glove feels and obviously in the durability of the glove. We found that the Major Chase glove had an excellent balance! We asked a number of members to test these gloves and the feedback was very consistent in this category.
Awesome Feel & Extremely Durable! 
Pros: Major Chase gloves fit as well as any glove that I have used. Everyone's attention will be on your glove. Their gloves are THE BEST VALUE hands down and CUSTOM!
Cons: I couldn’t find any! If I had to “stretch” it would be that you have to order via phone or email and there are restrictions on minimum orders.

Go Time Factor: If you're looking to "Show Off" your company on the course - Major Chase Gloves are an excellent choice of products! Your Custom Logo Gloves will be noticed! Everyone will love the quality, looks and feel!
If you're a weekend golfer - create a logo and you too can rock Major Chase Gloves!

Contact Bob Rosberg Now to discuss customization, quantities & pricing.

Tester Feedback: JJ Jones – 3 HDCP, Florida

     " Major Chase Golf Gloves: Not sure if I’m supposed to review these but, these gloves are awesome! Wet/dry, windy, sandy, doesn’t matter… one of the best gloves I have used. I like the simple design (no crazy palm pad, or thumb webbing gimmicks), and actually have decided I will be switching to these gloves completely. I currently use one of the Adidas models, but I can only get a little over a month of use before the seams start to break or rip. After 2 weeks of use, the Major Chase glove is holding up almost as good as it was out of the plastic, minus some rub marks from my grips. Great product!"

Tester Feedback: Craig Adolff

     "Very high quality leather, I normally start wearing the glove very fast in the palm and I have not with these yet. And I think it is very great way to advertise your product, your company and your brand. You look at your glove at least 50 plus times a round."

Tester Feedback: David Locke

"We found the golf glove was very comfortable and gripped the club nicely."

Tester Feedback: Tim Witucki Twitter @boostertim

Golf Glove: Great feel. Have played a few rounds and unlike some other gloves, this one has not stretched out on my hand. Great fit & tacky feel has kept the club from not turning or slipping in my hand when swinging. This is a glove I would buy in a heartbeat.
