Indoor Golf: Places to Play Around Seattle

Indoor Golf: Places to Play Around Seattle

By Nextgengolf

 

If it's cold, rainy or both you're probably not looking to head out to the golf course. If you still have that urge to get off the couch, swing some clubs and hit some putts, we thought we'd give you four great places to play indoor golf in Seattle.

Clubhouse Golf Center 

Located in Lynnwood, Clubhouse Golf Center has top of the line simulators that allow for customers to come and play any of their 80 championship courses (St. Andrews, Bandon Dunes, etc). It's a great place to bring your family or enjoy a beer with friends. During Seawhawks games, fans can even save 50% on their round! CGC can be rented for private parties or corporate events. Definitely a great place to play some indoor golf around Seattle.

The 5 Best Golf Headcovers of All Time (PGA Tour)

The 5 Best Golf Headcovers of All Time (PGA Tour)

By Mike Devlin

 We breakdown the best golf headcovers of all time on the PGA Tour. Don't agree? Have a suggestion? Tweet at us. 

5. Louis Oosthuizen | The Shrek Headcover

This guy's swing is so filthy it's borderline NSFW. Oh and he had a pretty awesome headcover, too. The story goes that he was given the nickname "Shrek" by some of his close friends for the gap in his teeth. Louis embraced the hate and got a Shrek headcover made for his bag. He no longer carries the headcover because it was deemed to be "bad luck" by his caddy. Although it's gone, the point remains that this should make you like the guy a little more than you did before.

The 6 Worst Golf Balls Ever Made

The 6 Worst Golf Balls Ever Made

By Connor Brown

  

We threw around a few potential titles for this blog: "The 6 balls you wouldn't bother picking up in the woods", "Top golf balls you'd find in a hacker's bag", "Six balls your dad probably uses" ... but ultimately we decided it's best summed up as "The 6 worst golf balls ever made" or at least in mainstream golf.  Did we miss any? Tweet at us @Nextgolfer.

1. Pinnacle Gold

The ultimate fisherman's golf ball. When you see the telescopic rod come out near the par 3 over water, you know what golf ball is being scooped out of there: Pinnacle Gold. Enjoyed by weekend warriors, this is certainly not the ideal catch when fishing the hazards.

By Nextgengolf

If you stay up-to-date on the golf club industry then you know that Srixon irons have been killing it - being named to the MyGolf Spy’s Most Wanted, Golf Digest’s Gold Hotlist, and most importantly…Ambassador’s best friend list.

In all seriousness, the Nextgengolf members from across the country lucky enough to be Srixon Ambassadors in 2017 have been loving their new clubs. We thought we would check in on 4 Ambassadors review of their experience using Srixon irons.

Make more putts with one simple drill

Make more putts with one simple drill

By Connor Brown

 

Almost all good putters will tell you the same thing: having your eyes over the ball is important to holing more putts. Although the all-time greats of putting may have had differences in their posture or tempo it's truly fascinating (and telling) that all the greats maintain this common approach of keeping their eyes directly over [or slightly inside] the ball at address.

9 Places to Buy and Sell Used Golf Clubs

9 Places to Buy and Sell Used Golf Clubs

By Kris Hart

 

Buying new clubs is not always the right decision especially if you are a millennial golfer on a budget or someone who is new to the game. Recently, I was cleaning out my garage and decided to sell some of my old golf clubs online and was amazed to see the number of places where you can buy and sell used clubs. I thought the list below could be helpful to anyone in the Nextgengolf community who is looking to buy or sell golf clubs in the future. Note that this list is in no particular order and I do not have a bias towards any of these companies.

1. Craigslist – I would not recommend Craigslist if you are searching for specific clubs given the limited selection, however, there are people selling [typically older] sets of golf clubs inexpensively on here.  It may be worth checking out before other sites on the chance you get lucky and find someone who is moving and looking to sell a decent set. For example, I came across someone selling ping irons for $100 (as seen below)... pretty darn good, even though they were a few years old! 

2. 3balls.com Yeah, I know it does not sounds like a golf site, but this company has a huge selection of used golf clubs. As of July 2017, they advertise having nearly 40,000 clubs for sale. The site is easy to navigate and there are often promotions to save some extra bucks.

Playoff formats for golf's four major championships

Playoff formats for golf's four major championships

By Mike Devlin

 

 

 

All major championships have unique, great moments and traditions. Many of the most memorable majors are those that hadn't concluded after 4 full rounds of golf and demanded extra holes in the form of a playoff. However, it's tough to remember which major follows what playoff format. To make it easy, we thought we'd lay out each major and the playoff structure that they follow:
