Two Golf Bags and a Boston Terrier — Vacation Time!

August 7, 2008

I was a little worried about our how our trip to the Adirondacks would go since this was our first time flying with our golf clubs AND our Boston terrier, Fred. But everything got there in one piece in the new bags we bought and Fred arrived none the worse for wear. We got these Tour Trek Endeavor travel bags at Golfsmith. They were some of the least expensive travel covers available, but they still seem to have a decent amount of padding. We also used the Club Glove Stiff Arm. You extend the stick up from the bottom of your bag until the hard dome is higher than the top of your driver. This absorbs the impact and protects your clubs when they’re thrown around by the baggage handlers.

Blister Buster

August 4, 2008

In spite of my best efforts to fix my grip, my thumb blister keeps reappearing.  This gets to be pretty annoying and painful out on the course.  My golf coach let me try the “miracle product” he found and it’s been the best thing I’ve tried for dealing with this.  It’s 3M Nexcare Absolute Waterproof Foam Tape.  The tape stayed on for 18 holes in the heat and was totally comfortable over the blister.  It adheres to itself and forms a good protective layer, but stays flexible, so it’s great for finger issues.  I love this stuff.
