Limpert Tech "SullyCast" on ALT 105.7 - New Golf Tech

A wrap up of St. Patrick's and St. Baldrick's

Then on to some new golf tech  and a bunch to get through this week...


Rick will be hitting the links this spring. Here's some of what new he'll be using.

Have a listen to Rick and Sully:

1. A New Fitted Driver from Club Champion

Custom fit golf clubs from the experts...
Rick recently got fitted for a new driver at Club Champion.
When it comes to getting fit for golf clubs, in order to do it absolutely to the best of your ability, you need to look for four key things:

Demo Equipment:  How many brands of heads and shafts can you hit during your fitting session and even better, can you mix and match them.  At the end of the day, the more choices you have, the better.  If you’re only getting fit with one or two fitting carts and/or demo bags, you are not getting even close to the breadth of equipment combinations available today.

Technology:  A launch monitor is a MUST, but which one is important as well.  Many are good, but Trackman is still the de facto launch monitor the pros trust and so should you.  For putting analysis, the Science and Motion PuttLab is still second to none in terms of the data it delivers to help you decide which type of putter is best for you.

Your Fitter:  If you think reading a launch monitor and saying “You’re spin is too high, try this” is all there is to club fitting, think again.  There is an art to the science behind all of this, and if your fitter hasn’t been fitting for long or hasn’t seen a couple hundred people, you’re taking your chances that your fitter truly knows what he’s doing.

Club Building:  At the end of all of this, if you have a perfect 3 for 3 score from above but your clubs are built in the ‘custom shop’ of a manufacturer (ie assembly line) your odds of getting the clubs built exactly to your specifications decrease considerably.  No two sets should be alike, and you need someone to get those lofts, lies, lengths and swing weights dead-on to take full advantage of any club fitting process.
According to Golf Digest, 8 out of 9 Club Champion customers who upgraded to custom-fit clubs added an average of 21 yards off the tee and lowered their scores by as much as 6 strokes per round. In fact, nearly 100% of Club Champion Customers report they were satisfied.

2. Cobra Irons - Smart Golf Clubs

Used by Rickie Fowler
Golf club manufacturers are expecting a big year in 2018, and one company, Cobra Golf, introduced the first ’smart’ set of clubs – the KING F8 AND F8+ line up featuring Cobra Connect Powered by Arccos. This is golf club engineering with next-level performance tracking. Your Cobra Connect clubs come standard with an Arccos sensor embedded in the grip end. This allows users to automatically track and analyze their performance with each club and across all game aspects. This is Cobra quality with Arccos technology collecting and disbursing that data golfers need and want at

3. Ecco Shoes

The ECCO BIOM® HYBRID 3 features the ECCO TRI-FI-GRIP™ outsole with a multi-purpose zonal performance structure for optimal traction and stability. Specifically engineered to move with the foot through the swing, the multi-purpose zonal performance structure is focused on achieving maximum rotation, stability and durability.
Specifically engineered to move with the foot through the swing, the multi-purpose zonal performance structure is focused on three key segments:\
    Zone 1 centers on delivering outstanding lateral stability throughout the swing.
    Zone 2 forms the middle of the outsole and is designed to enhance walking comfort through the round and beyond. It also features a durability region in the heel where shoes can be prone to wearing.
    Zone 3 is a specially engineered rotational section designed to optimize the movement in the forefoot through slim, rounded lugs which promote fast and easy rotation through the swing.
Available in bold options for men and women, additional features of ECCO BIOM HYBRID 3 include:
    An ECCO Racer Yak leather upper with supreme breathability and durability
    100% GORE-TEX® waterproof protection, guaranteed for three years
    The option of a BOA® closure system for optimum fit
    ECCO Freedom Fit mixing a snug heel setting with a roomier forefoot area that allows toes to move naturally
    BIOM® NATURAL MOTION® technology brings the player closer to the ground while offering an anatomical last shape with superb cushioning and advanced support
    Removable Ortholite® inlay soles, offering long-term cushioning, enhanced breathability, moisture management and the option of extra width

4. Shot Scope V2 - Performance Tracking Watch

Combining front/middle/back GPS with Shot Scope’s industry-leading Performance Tracking. V2 fills a significant gap in the market. V2 is now available.

Golfers have long sought a device that combined GPS yardages and fully automatic performance tracking; Shot Scope’s in-house engineers have developed a product that meets the needs of the modern golfer while retaining the company’s trademark automatic club recognition technology and detailed performance statistics.
V2 has three modes to suit the golfer’s playing requirements, GPS, PRO and GPS+TRACK, each mode has been designed for ultimate flexibility. In both GPS and GPS+TRACK modes, the LCD screen displays distances to the front, middle and back of the green from the golfer’s real-time position using SMART GPS. Distances to hazards will be released in a software update later in the year.
Performance Tracking is activated in both PRO and GPS+TRACK modes. The watch works in the background to collect over 100 Tour-level statistics, broken down into five areas: clubs, tee shots, approaches, short game and putting. Performance statistics of this calibre have previously only been available to Tour players. No manual input or phone-use is required.
V2 uses Shot Scope’s proprietary course mapping data which is compiled and quality checked by a team of elite golfers.

5. Club Car is celebrating 60 years in the industry in 2018.

As far as golf carts go, Club Car is hard to beat...

Club Car was founded in the early to mid 1950s in Dallas, Texas.   Bill Stevens bought the rights to the golf car and moved the manufacturing facility to Augusta, Georgia, where he lived.  
Stevens eventually sold out to Johns Manville Company and then in 1978 Club Car was sold again to a group of investors that included Billy Dolan and seven other top managers from E-Z-GO.  They redesigned the golf car and in 1982 introduced the DS model which is still familiar today. They took a small company from back in the pack to become a world class manufacturer of golf and utility vehicles.

They are also launching Tempo ConnectTM, a stylish new golf car with enhanced technology including Visage Fleet Management.
Tempo Connect’s enhanced ride is designed with automotive styling and connected technology. Club Car’s proven engineering, industry-leading durability and reliable comfort are evident with a new sleek front cowl, rust-proof aluminum frame, new alloy wheels, premium comfort seats and a spacious dashboard.
