GET INTO THE GROOVE
If you have followed golf in the past 20 years, you can make a list of some of your favorite golfers based on skill or just the type of person they were. When that list comes to your mind two golfers must come to mind for 95% of readers.
John Daly and Rocco Mediate.
The golfers we all remember and love from the 90’s made pretty big moves recently in the golf equipment world.
With all these new drivers coming out with movable weights and changeable sole plates it is hard to find a simple driver that just helps you hit the ball further and straighter, without getting out a toolbox full of wrenches to help do so.
It looks like Daly and Mediate found the one. Vertical Groove Golf is a company based out of Boston, MA that patented vertical grooves on the face of the driver instead of horizontal. They claim to be “Changing the face of golf. Literally.”
This driver may have seemed kind of gimmicky, like you would see it on an infomercial for $99.99 plus shipping and handling, but wait, if you order within the next 10 minutes they will send you a putter and a dozen balls as well!!!!
No, that isn’t what Vertical Groove Golf is about. Clearly, two of golfs most respected players just signed with Vertical Groove Golf when they could of picked any other driver on the face of this earth.
You can customize your own VGG driver on their website. The site lets you adjust loft, flexibility of the shaft and pick leftie or rightie.
With all that being said we will have to wait and see the positive impact it has on these two PGA Champions Tour golfers.
Daly has long been known as one of the longer hitters in golf so it will be interesting to see him game the VGG driver this season.
Mediate, coming off of a Major victory on the Champions Tour must have been as impressed with the driver as Daly was. Mediate also had PXG on all his clubs last season so this driver had to of out performed the highly talked about PXG brand’s driver.
With these two joining VGG, it is only a matter of time before one of the PGA Tour guys to join the already star studded VGG team.
