Ping Rapture Golf Driver

ping rapture golf clubs
When it comes to Ping Rapture, then it definitely comes to straight and long shots. This is why even if Ping Rapture is not the perfect club for the pro players, for the average Joe golfers who are looking forward to making their long shots straighter, Ping Rapture is the perfect golf club.

Ping Rapture has a crescent shape, with a head that is made out of a lightweight material (titanium most often or even tungsten). Depending of the wanted distance, the thickness of the head may be different, therefore in order to ensure that the player can hit properly in all the situations that might appear on the field of the country club, a whole set of Ping Rapture is needed.

Nowadays, Ping Rapture is selling Rapture V2, which is a mix between tungsten and titanium, built in such a manner that it is perfect for a high launch. That is because the center of gravity is deep and the face is quite thin, facts that can lead only to one thing: high launches and high speeds for the ball. As for the lofts, Ping Rapture comes in 4 different types that range from 9 to maximum 13.5 degrees; moreover, every Ping Rapture has an inbuilt 45.75 inch graphite shaft that allows an extra stiff flex.

Titleist is one of the oldest golf equipment producers that is still on the market. As well, the company is known for producing top golf clubs like Titleist 907D2, club that is one of the most used clubs at the moment, as it is used in contests by players like Woods and Jenkel, who are quite big names of the game.

Titleist 907D2 is definitely in the top 3 of the all time long distance clubs. Now, its results would not be possible without the shafts Aldila VS Proto 65, GDI YS-6+, Titleist Spec Grid 67, and UST Proforce V2 75, shafts that were designed in order to work properly only with Titleist 907D2

The only thing is that this club can be easily misused especially in the hands of the beginners. As it is made specially for the 5 long par shots, if people tend to use it in other conditions, they will rapidly fail as this club isn’t designed to work in tight spaces where a lot of technique is needed.

Nike Sasquatch

Since Tiger Woods is using Nike Sasquatch, this club definitely has to deserve its popularity. In fact, Nike Sasquatch is quite popular among several pro golf player as many of them reported that Nike Sasquatch has helped them to win pro golf contests.

Like any other club, it is designed to help the golfers reach their maximum potential at the long shots. Due to the fact that it’s created with the Powerbow technology, Nike Sasquatch helps the golfers to deliver a straight launch, advantage that is quite preferred by the rookies in this sport. Now, some players may find this club to be to light for them; in order to solve that, additional weights can be installed on the club, without spoiling its properties. However, only experienced golfers can hit properly with the tuned version of the Nike Sasquatch.

To make things clear, Nike Sasquatch comes with a stiff shaft and 105 degree loft, fact that automatically helps every golfer to hit further with at least 10 yards, fact that isn’t happening at the regular clubs.

76th Masters – Bubba Watson beats Louis Oosthuizen in play-off

American Bubba Watson beat South Africa’s Louis Oosthuizen in a play-off to clinch the 76th Masters at Augusta.

The 33-year-old left-hander won at the second extra hole to claim his first major title.

Watson and 2010 Open champion Oosthuizen tied at 10 under after 72 holes and shared par fours at the first extra hole, the 18th.
Going down the 10th, both drove into trees to the right of the fairway but Watson hit a fabulous second to eight feet and had the luxury of two putts for the title after Oosthuizen’s bogey five.

The emotional Watson broke down in tears as the final putt dropped before embracing his caddie and mother, followed by friends, including fellow PGA Tour players Rickie Fowler and Ben Crane.

“This day means so much more than putting on this Green Jacket, in many ways,” said Watson, on receiving the trademark blazer from defending champion Charl Schwartzel.

“But it is a special time to do it. It was amazing. The last nine holes, I don’t remember anything.”

Watson’s previous best major placing was finishing as runner-up to Germany’s Martin Kaymer at the 2010 PGA Championship, after losing a play-off.

He becomes the eighth consecutive first-time major winner and he will move up to fourth in the world rankings.
