The golf manufacturing business never stops.

At the start of 2017, Nike announced it had signed Jason Day, the world’s top-ranked men’s professional, to a golf apparel deal.

Day had previously been affiliated with Adidas.

Every time I go to the gym, I do a light warmup riding the stationary bike for about 10 minutes at moderate speed and then do some easy stretching before I increase the intensity of the workout with weights and other apparatus.

The reason I do all this is because I’m trying to easy my body into something more extreme.

5 Best Balls For Winter Golf

Winter conditions make it tricky to get out on the course, but not necessarily impossible. If it is just a light dusting that covers the fairways and you’re willing to brave the weather, then there is no reason you can’t squeeze in a few rounds during the colder months of the year. But just because you’re up to the task, that doesn’t mean your equipment is, especially when it comes to your golf balls. In fact, a golf ball loses about two yards of carry for every 10 degrees drop in temperature. This is due to the fact that the colder a golf ball gets, the harder it becomes, making it more difficult to compress. When teeing it up in less than ideal conditions, it’s a good idea to choose a ball that is a little softer than what you might normally play. It is also a good idea to go with a ball of the colored variety, to help increase visibility on a frosty or snow covered course. Here are the five best balls for golf in the winter, all of which can be found right here at LostGolfBalls.com.

After a nearly 16 month absence – which included two back surgeries – Tiger Woods finally made his return to competitive golf this past weekend at the Hero World Challenge in the Bahamas. While much of the golf world was giddy with excitement as the most dominant golfer in history got back on the course, his performance was not quite “vintage Tiger”. However, there were glimpses of the game that once launched Tiger to superstardom to go along with the reminders that he is, and may never be, quite what he once was. With that being said, we take a look at the good, the bad and the ugly of Tiger’s comeback.

For many years, Canada has been waiting for the next Mike Weir, who won the Masters back in 2003 and became one of the top players in the world for a few years until injuries took their toll.

Some such as David Hearn, Graham DeLaet, Nick Taylor, Brad Fritsch and Adam Hadwin have come forward to make their presences felt as the next great Canadian on the PGA Tour, while amateur Jared du Toit had a good run in the 2016 Canadian Open, but none have been able to capture the imagination and optimism of rookie Mackenzie Hughes.
