How’s this for performance under pressure. At Tiger Wood’s opening ceremony for his new Bluejack National course, a young lad aces the inaugural shot for the Par 3 course, with Tiger standing right there. Sweet swing and lots of high fives all around.

Nike Golf shows us the new and improved FI Impact 2 spikes, in four gorgeous colorways for both men and women. The goals with the FI Impact 2 were to improve traction and enhance flexibility. For stability, the shoes have a larger base than the original, but also got skinny and dropped a full ounce of weight. They also feature a sole design akin to the Nike TW ’15 in order to improve the traction in the toe and heel. Got snag a pair at Nike for about $120 bones.
Take a peak at the sole design after the jump.
adidas has come up with an innovative new shoe, designed specifically for the right hander or left hander. You should buy the pair that matches your swing. The Asym Energy Boost comes in a different sole pattern to maximize your swing power and prevent power leaks. The molded EVA tongue top with fitsleeve delivers a more precise, comfortable fit. It’s a very cool idea that may catch on to other shoe manufacturers.

Nike is dropping the new Jordan Flight Runner Golf shoe this month. These spikes will be the first Michael Jordan-brand golf shoe released by Nike in 10 years. Keegan has been rocking the MJ brand on the course, but unfortunately you cannot buy those versions anywhere. These shoes are going to be instant classics. The shoe is made up of mesh and synthetic materials, and has a similarity to the Nike Free look in the Tiger Woods collection. It will come in two colorways only: black and grey.

Red Bull puts Rickie Fowler in a speedo swimsuit! Say what!?! Too funny. Yes, you have to check out this video where Rickie Fowler and professional cliff diver David Colturi swap pro sports and teach each other the ropes. The best part is halfway through the video, and Rickie dons a skimpy swimsuit – hilarious. Must see.

TaylorMade is on a mission to open up the game of golf to more players and expand the sport. As part of that effort, the company introduces the 15-inch hole golf course. A very interesting way to broaden the game, these larger holes allow for faster play and more exciting times to be had by all. More birdies, eagles, chip-ins, hole-outs, and probably some more aces. As TaylorMade says, it’s not to change the game completely, but to be additive to what the Tour pros play and make it easier and more fun for people to start playing golf. All for that. The Delofted folks will definitely give it a try.
