New Srixon Z785 driver is the real deal

By Connor Brown

Waiting for launches from your favorite club producer can be one of the most anticipated waiting periods for any golfer. When Srixon initially teased it’s new driver, I couldn't help but get excited for something that was promised to be a game changer for the brand. Seeing the feedback from tour players, golf forum communities, and ultimately the people that I trust most, Srixon ambassadors from Nextgengolf, I was sold on the idea that the new Z785 driver is the real deal.

Dell Technologies Championship ambassador experience

Dell Technologies Championship ambassador experience

By Luke Stull

When I arrived at TPC Boston for my ambassador experience at the Dell Technologies Championship, the shuttle dropped me right next to the range, so it didn't take long find the action. About 30 minutes after getting to Srixon’s equipment trailer, Ted Potter and his caddie walked in. Instead of asking for something exciting like a new shaft in his driver or a fresh grind on his wedges, he needed a repair to his golf bag.

From club golfer to Tournament Director

From club golfer to Tournament Director

By Chris Mari

When I was first introduced to the National Collegiate Club Golf Association (NCCGA) and Nextgengolf, I was told that the golf industry was a small world and that you’ll run into some familiar faces. Of course, being a naive 18-year-old I brushed this to the side.

Ambassador experience at the Travelers Championship

Ambassador experience at the Travelers Championship

By Pascal Garneau

 ‘’So you flew out there?’’  ‘’Nah I drove 14 hours total Monday and Tuesday to make it."

I probably got asked that questions 10 times since returning from Cromwell, CT. Some people have difficulty understanding why a normal person would drive 7 hour straight each way to attend a PGA Tour event. For me, it never  really crossed my mind. I was more asking myself, where could I play a few holes when I arrive at 7PM on Monday evening? Even though English is my second language, I really wanted to share this experience with you and how much it meant to me.

I was never really interested in music or arts. Growing up, you would never find me playing with Legos or in the sandbox. Nope, I was building my own three-hole course in my parents’ backyard using the weed eater to cut the grass down as low as I could and crafting my own course cards. That was the kind of kid I was.

US Open preview: What no one is talking about

By Connor Brown

The US Open is just a few days away and what an exciting time golf is in right now. We’ve all heard about the young guys like Justin Thomas, Jordan Spieth, Rickie Fowler and crew who can win any particular week. You then have guys like Dustin Johnson, Justin Rose and Jason Day who have all won this year who could easily hoist the trophy come Sunday. With Tiger rolling into the Hamptons with his 20 million dollar yacht and reminding everyone that he was king (and still is?) you just never know who may win the US Open this year at Shinnecock. There are a few things that no one wants to talk about however, but I certainly will.
