Titleist Vokey Design Spin Milled C-C Wedges
Conform to New 2010 U.S.G.A. and R&A Groove Rules and Provide More Choices for Players Competing in Events that Adopt New Groove Rule as a Condition of Competition
          In response to the USGA and R&A rule change regarding grooves, Titleist, the most played wedge across the worldwide professional tours and the best-selling wedge line in the U.S. marketplace, introduces the new family of Vokey Design Spin Milled C-C wedges. These new "Condition of Competition" wedges provide optimum performance and shot control within the new guidelines and were developed following an intense and coordinated effort between Master Craftsman Bob Vokey, Titleist Golf Club Research & Development, and extensive player testing on the PGA Tour.
          The new Vokey Design Spin Milled Wedges can be identified by “C-C” engraving on the hosel and gold paintfill in the Spin Milled logo (current Spin Milled wedges have red paintfill in the logo). Titleist Vokey Design Spin Milled C-C wedges will also include a face sticker that reads: “This Vokey Design wedge conforms to the new 2010 USGA/R&A groove rule and can be used in events that adopt the new rule as a Condition of Competition.”
          Vokey Design Spin Milled C-C Wedges are made from soft 8620 carbon steel and feature the face surface is precisely machined with a series of milled micro edges resulting in higher face friction than with a polished wedge face. The resulting additional ball spin retention achieved from this higher friction is particularly advantageous on partial shots, where grooves have much less impact on spin.
          Vokey Design Spin Milled C-C wedges are available through authorized Titleist retailers with a manufacturers suggested retail price of $125. For more information about Vokey Wedges see

Cobra's New ZL Driver with Adjustable Flight Technology

          The ZL is a high-performance driver with a clubhead that is designed to maximize distance, accuracy and forgiveness. To optimize ball speed and thus distance, Cobra engineers utilized Advanced Multi-Material Construction in which a lightweight, high strength carbon fiber crown and sole insert are integrated into a titanium 6-4 clubhead body and clubface. The titanium clubface utilizes Cobra’s patented Milled Rhombus laser-welded face insert plus a new, thinner perimeter area.
          To complement the multi-material construction in the clubhead design, the ZL also features a swingweight screw which helps shift the Center of Gravity (CG) toward the heel, to help provide draw bias ball flight– while maintaining a square clubface alignment. Combine all of these design features with the longer 46” Aldila VooDoo shaft, and golfers will experience increased ball speed and optimum launch across the clubface. In addition, Cobra’s exclusive Adjustable Flight Technology features an adjustable hosel that golfers can set to one of three face angles (O-open, N-neutral, C-closed) to provide a simple and quick way to optimize their personal ball flight.
          With a suggested retail price of $425, the Cobra ZL driver is available in lofts of 8.5, 9.5, 10.5 and 11.5 degrees and with a 46 inch Aldila VooDoo graphite shaft, in men's R and S flexes. Lite and women's flexes, along with other shafts, are available through custom order.

PowerStroke™ Full Swing Golf Grip by Macro® Golf
          Of all the grips in golf only PowerStroke, the USGA conforming grip from Macro® Golf puts all of its patented, breakthrough ergonomic taper firmly into the fingers of a golfer’s “left hand” (for right handed players) for measurably greater wrist flex and better shot control when playing.

          The tapered shape of traditional golf grips was designed very long ago to keep the club in your hands when you swing; especially with slippery wet leather grips. This ancient tapered form that has survived to modern times, though efficiently resistant to the effects of centrifugal force, is the opposite of “ergonomic” in regard to the grasping hands and was never designed to support the critical elements of the set-up and execution of the golf swing. It shouldn’t take an Einstein to figure out that the tapered form of traditional grips, being a non-ergonomic shape, is actually a hidden swing impediment; a silent, built-in handicap to which golfers eventually can get partially acclimated, but unknowingly, must combat for a lifetime.
          This new grip is shaped to be grasped in the fingers and demands no alteration in a player’s customary choice of conventional hands placement. In addition, because of an ergonomic configuration that markedly increases wrist-hinge flexibility, this grip permits a notable tension-free wrist/arm extension at setup to automatically minimize and/or eliminate the address wrist/shaft angle; a beneficial action unavailable with any other golf grip design presently in use. It is for this reason that this grip can have an advantageous impact for those players persuade that their shot improvement lies through adoption of facilitating a “One Plane Swing”.
          The ergonomic design of the PowerStroke Grips doesn’t restrict wrist flex during the golf swing like conventional grips do, thereby making it simpler to facilitate an intended swingplane. In other words, golfclubs with PowerStroke Grips are much easier to aim.

How does PowerStroke’s dramatically increased wrist hinge flexibility over conventional grips improve your swing?
          It provides greater tension free wrist extension throughout the golf swing to promote the accuracy, consistency and power of the club head traveling from address to the "Top" and back down to impact... always on the same path, always “on plane”.

The full tension free extension of a repeatable set-up and swing
The smooth wrist cock transition "at the top"
A more powerful, resistance free full extension through release and impact
Eliminates swing event spine angle changes and-swing "re-gripping"
