The Best Golf Bag Travel Case on the Market

Graylyn LoomisProduct Reviews7 Comments

I suffered for years carrying my golf clubs in a hard plastic shell-style travel case. I picked up that original case in 2006, and after 10 years of hurt shoulders, sore backs, and twisted wrists, I decided it was finally time to get something new. I spent some time doing serious research and consulting other people in the golf industry … Read More

Keep these guys in mind with the holiday shopping rush currently taking place (December, 2015). The pendulum of opinion swings back and forth in the world of golf.

IJP Design Autumn / Winter Collection Review

Graylyn LoomisProduct Reviews2 Comments

Ian Poulter’s outfits on tour rarely align with my personal taste. The bright coordinated outfits are much bolder than my usually boring country club attire. However, when I was recently given the opportunity to review IJP Design’s new Autumn Winter 2015 Collection by their PR team, I was pleasantly surprised to find quite a few more subdued options available to golfers. … Read More

Graylyn LoomisProduct Reviews, St. Andrews2 Comments

I met Josh Evenson in 2010. I was a first year student at the University of St Andrews and he was getting his Masters in economics. We connected as Americans obsessed with everything Scottish golf. In addition to his studies, Josh was working with the R&A’s Heritage Division combing through the sport’s historical archives. We shared pints in the St Andrews … Read More

I hopped on the evening flight from Charleston, South Carolina to New York City after work earlier this month.

When I saw a sign reading, “AirTrain out of … Read More

A Conversation with Tim Alpaugh

Graylyn LoomisProduct Reviews0 Comments

It seems like I have been running into more and more hickory playing golfers as of late. These “hickory golfers” tap into a purer form of golf, solely playing with clubs built pre-1935 while typically using replica golf balls. During my years in Scotland, it wasn’t uncommon to find a player down on the St Andrews Links playing a set of … Read More

Galvin Green Rain Gear Review

Graylyn LoomisProduct Reviews16 Comments

“When you buy quality, you only cry once.” Caddying 36 holes a day in torrential rain and heavy Scottish winds is the ultimate test for a rain suit. Although four years in St Andrews and hundreds of rounds of golf tested my rain gear, a season caddying at Kingsbarns Golf Links convinced me that Galvin Green is absolutely the best. The best recommendation that … Read More

FootJoy Contour Casual Review

Graylyn LoomisProduct Reviews2 Comments

I have always been a fan of “classic” style golf shoes. I considered my high school pair of Adidas Tour 360 shoes to be a radical departure from the my typical line of FootJoy Classics. Combine that devotion to traditional golf shoes with four years of rainy links golf in St Andrews, Scotland, and you can imagine my skepticism of casual, spikeless shoes, … Read More
