Time To Get Your Club Re-Gripped When This Happens

The golf professionals at Golf Gear, located in Stuart Florida, give us some tips on how to know when its time to get your clubs re-gripped.  This may seem like something that you only need to do once every few years, but little do you know it really impacts your game when your clubs are overdue for new grip. Here are a few reasons to stay on top of gripping your clubs: Replace stock “standard” size grips with a size that best matches the size of YOUR hands Select a material, texture, design and color that’s best suited to YOUR personal style, playing level, and weather conditions To replace worn-out, slick grips that contribute to excessive grip tension and pressure PLAY, LOOK AND FEEL BETTER WITH THE RIGHT GOLF GRIPS Regardless of rounds played, a grip should always be replaced at the first sign of noticeable wear, including: Smooth, hard surfaces Cracks Shiny patches Wear spots, especially where the thumbs make contact Faded or bare spots on grips that have been painted or have logos Complete loss of tack Golf Gear owner Harry Walch states, ” It’s kind of like getting a new haircut. You are thinking this is exactly how I want my hair to look.  Then a few months go by and you realize what a mess your hair is and need to get it cut. It’s the same with your golf clubs.” The best rule of thumb on when you should get your clubs re-gripped is to determine how many times a week you play. However many times you play in a week is how many times yo-u should get your clubs re-gripped per year.  For such a small investment, you get a really big return. Schedule your appointment today!...

Winner’s bag: Jimmy Walker, PGA Championship

Winner’s bag: Jimmy Walker, PGA Championship

Jimmy Walker became the fourth first-time major winner this season going wire-to-wire to win the PGA Championship on Sunday at Baltusrol Golf Club.   Walker opened with nine straight pars during the final round to stay at 11-under before producing the highlights of his week on back-to-back holes with a 44-foot hole-out from the bunker on No. 10, and a 30-foot birdie putt on No. 11 that drew a fist pump from the six-time TOUR winner. With Jason Day hanging around for much of the afternoon, Walker closed the door for good on the 17th with a birdie putt from 8 feet to extend the lead to three shots. Following a two tournament run with a Scotty Cameron Futura X7M mallet putter, Walker returned to his 12-year-old Scotty Cameron Newport 2 GSS blade at Baltusrol. The putter is the same one he used to notch two wins during the 2014-15 TOUR season, and top the money list on the 2004 Web.com Tour. Walker had the putter restored to its original condition and 10-gram tungsten weights added to the sole last year — to provide him with the weight he prefers — at the Scotty Cameron Custom Shop. “I had won a couple of times with the putter in 2004, but switched to a little heavier putter as my stroke changed over the years and kind of put that one away for a while,” Walker said last season. “I’ve always loved the look of it and asked [Cameron Putter Rep] Kelley Moser to see what could be done to restore it, but also get it to a similar weight to the Scotty I was currently using.” Walker ranked 10th in strokes gained: putting with the blade, making a handful of critical putts during the final round that allowed the 37-year-old to realize his major championship dream. Here’s a look at the rest of the equipment in Walker’s bag.   Driver: Titleist 917D2 (UST Mamiya Elements Platinum 7 shaft), 8.5 degrees 3-wood: TaylorMade M1 (Alidla Rogue Limited Edition Silver 80TX shaft), 15 degrees 5-wood: Titleist 915Fd (Fujikura Motore Speeder VC 8.2X Tour Spec shaft), 18 degrees Irons: Titleist 716 MB (3-9; True Temper Dynamic AMT X100 Tour Issue shafts) Wedges: Titleist Vokey Design SM6 (48-08F, 54-08M and 60-04L degrees; True Temper Dynamic Gold X100 Tour Issue shafts) Putter: Scotty Cameron Newport 2 GSS Prototype Ball: Titleist Pro V1x   (pgatour.com)       GOLF GEAR, is one of the only and largest local pro shops (in Stuart FL) located off course that provides golf equipment, men/women golf apparel that is not being sold in on course pro shops.

Why You Need to Support Small, Local Businesses

Why You Need to Support Small, Local Businesses

Small business is – quite frankly – big business. The Small Business Administration identified that there are more than 28.2 million businesses operating in the United States as of March 2014, with about 63% of new jobs being created from small businesses between 1993 and mid 2013. Of these 28.2 million businesses, most are “self-employed” – making up about 3/4 of the U.S.’s total businesses. Meanwhile, approximately half of small businesses survive five years or more, many of which make up your local coffee shops, favorite local boutiques, preferred chiropractor or local pet shop. (forbes.com) When you consider how many small businesses surround you in your everyday lives, it is impressive to think about the amount of time, commitment and labor these hard working individuals contribute to make their businesses both come to life and stay alive. Customers assume that pricing will automatically be higher at a small business vs. a corporate owned store,  as well as they dismiss the perks that many small businesses offer such as customer care, inventory assortment and community support. However, did you know that many of these misconceptions about small businesses are just that… misconceptions? 1. Stores do not control pricing of most products. Vendors do. Prices are controlled by the manufacturers suggested retail, not by each individual store. Once the styles are no longer new, each store has the ability to make markdowns. 2. Inventory is not always more easily available at big box stores. Small business are still offered the same inventory that big box stores are being offered. More variety actually. 3. Customer service is more personalized, hands-on and noteworthy from smaller businesses. You know your customers at a small business. They know Sally and Joe from down the corner to help you in a faster manner and know exactly what each person needs. 4. Product diversity and options are often greater at small businesses vs. chain stores.  Small business are more likely to carry a variety of different boutique items that you cannot find in larger stores. One of a ind items that are simply amazing. 5. Local business owners are more likely to give back to your community. Bigger chains are less likely to give back to you rlocal community and help out local causes. Not to mention you are helping a family put a meal on a table by shopping in a local store, rather than helping a CEO buying a third vacation home by shopping at a big box corporation.         GOLF GEAR, is one of the only and largest local pro shops (in Stuart FL) located off course that provides golf equipment, men/women...
