PING Hoofer Golf Bag Review!

Thursday, April 23rd, 2009

Even after I turned pro, my favorite golf bag is still the PING Hoofer bag.  it’s been part of my golfing career ever since PING came out with it 10+ years ago.

I am not a really fan of ugly, oversized PING golf clubs, but I am an avid fan of their golf bags since like 1992.

I got my Hoofer bag back in around 1998 I think and it still looks new and definitely recommended over all other stand-up bags out on the market today.

The simplicity of PING bag stands never break and will stand well on any slopes on the golf course whereas other stand-up bags I’ve had either fell or broke within couple months of use.

Another feature of PING hoofer bags is that they are super-light, lighter than most other stand-up bags out there.

Hoofer bag’s double strap is also great for your shoulders and very, very comfortable.

If you are thinking about buying a new golf bag, I highly recommend this PING Hoofer bag, no exceptions!

Price: $189.95 on Amazon

Will McKenzie Driver Stack and Tilt Swing Analysis

Friday, July 11th, 2008

Will McKenzie is leading today over at John Deere Classic.  He shot 65 yesterday and 64 today.

Let’s look at his stack and tilt swing to see what makes him “tick”.

First of all, I’d like to say that Will has a really simple looking swing, it looks really good.

At address, you will notice that Will stays real “balanced” in the center, not tilting his shoulders much.  This is great way to swing.  Now, pay attention to the triangle formed by his arms and the club.

At takeaway, Will breaks his wrists slightly early but that’s not a problem as his triangle looks great.

At top of Will’s swing, Will looks really good, with little or no backswing weight transfer (his head stays in the same position as at address) and he has a really great “width”.  Notice how far above his head the hands are.

At half-way down, Will looks pretty good again although his right foot could be more relaxed.

At impact, will really gets his hands ahead of the ball but stays in perfect balance.

After impact, WIll’s follow-through is a mirror-image of his takeaway.  Again, great stuff.

Will’s finish is probably one of the best I’ve seen.  His standing almost perfectly vertical as you can see the line formed by his legs and upper body.  This is really good for playing golf when you get older and also helps your back.  (no straining your back when you finish like this)

Overall, I am really impressed at Will’s swing because of his rhythm and simplicity.  He makes it look “easy”.

I wouldn’t be surprised if he won this weekend, good luck Will.
