Take Your Drive to the Next Level: A Look at the Under Armour Drive Pro Shoe

For serious golfers seeking peak performance on the course, the shoe you wear can make all the difference. Under Armour has entered the arena with the Under Armour Drive Pro, a shoe designed to unlock the power of your natural swing through innovative technology and biomechanical engineering.

This blog highlights the latest shoe from our recent trip to Stoke Park where we got to see live testing in the UA biomechanics centre. 

Built for Stability and Power

The Drive Pro boasts a Swing Support System (S3), a multi-faceted approach to keeping your foot stable during your swing. This system incorporates features like:

  • Smart Traction: The outsole is strategically designed to provide traction in all directions, including rotational forces that occur during a powerful swing.
  • Dual-foam cushioning: This delivers a combination of shock absorption and responsiveness, ensuring comfort throughout your round without sacrificing power transfer.
  • Lockdown lacing: A snug and secure fit keeps your foot in place, preventing unwanted movement and maximizing stability.

Comfort and Breathability

Under Armour understands that golfers spend hours on their feet. The Drive Pro features a breathable, microfiber upper that keeps your feet cool and dry, even during intense competition. A one-year waterproof guarantee provides additional peace of mind in unpredictable weather.

Wide Option Available

For golfers with wider feet, Under Armour offers the Drive Pro in a wide width option, ensuring a comfortable fit for all players.

Early Impressions

While the Drive Pro is a relatively new shoe, initial impressions from golfers have been positive.

The shoe’s stability, comfort, and traction are outstanding and something we all commented on while playing the impressive Stoke Park Golf Club. Some golfers have noted a break-in period for the micro-fiber upper, but most agree that the shoe quickly becomes comfortable with wear.

It felt like the shoes moulded your feet and worked around what is considered the anatomical position to ensure the body moves as intended through every shot. 

Final Takeaway

The Under Armour Drive Pro is a compelling option for golfers seeking a shoe that prioritises stability, power transfer, and comfort.

With its innovative S3 system and breathable upper, the Drive Pro has the potential to take your game to the next level. Whether you’re a low-handicap golfer or a weekend warrior, the Drive Pro is worth considering for your next round.

They can now be found in your nearest AFGolfStore! Be sure to visit us and try them on for yourself.

Check Out the New SpeedSoft INK Golf Balls from TaylorMade

TaylorMade has introduced an exciting new golf ball – the SpeedSoft with the INK addition! As the name suggests, the SpeedSoft is designed to deliver impressive speed and soft feel.

Some key features of the new SpeedSoft golf balls:

  • Faster Core: The ball has a new PwrCoreTM core material that generates faster ball speed for added distance off the tee. Expect a few more yards from your drives!
  • Soft Compression: Despite the speed, the SpeedSoft still maintains a soft compression and feel thanks to its larger core size. This makes it ideal for golfers looking for a soft feel on shots around the green.
  • Low Drag Dimples: The ball has a 322 Extended Flight Dimple pattern that reduces drag and maintains carry in the air.
  • Variety of Colors: Available in green, pink, blue and red dozen packs so you can add some personality to your game.

In testing, golfers saw increased ball speed, longer carry distance with irons, and enough spin on wedge shots to stop the ball quickly on the green.

The SpeedSoft provides a great combo of fast speed off the driver along with soft feel and control around the greens. And with fun colour options, it allows you to add some style to your golf game.

Check with your AFGolfStore to pick up this exciting new release from TaylorMade!

The New Taylormade Qi Model: A Game Improvement Iron for 2024

The New Qi Model: A Game Improvement Iron for 2024

Taylormade has recently launched the new Taylormade Qi model, a game improvement iron designed for 2024. This iron comes with several key features that set it apart from its predecessor, the Stealth model.

Carbon Toe Wrap and Back

One of the major changes in the Stealth model which continues into the Qi iron is the use of carbon material in both the toe wrap and the back of the club. This combination of titanium metal and carbon provides a unique blend of strength and flexibility, enhancing the overall performance of the iron.

Improved Design

The Qi iron has undergone several design improvements compared to the previous Stealth model. The leading edge of the club sits lower to the ground and is slightly tighter, making it easier to pick up off the turf and improving overall playability. 

Additionally, the blade length has been increased by 1mm, which may not seem like much, but in the world of golf, even 1mm can make a significant difference in performance.

Opti-Face Technology

Taylormade has introduced a new face thickness technology called Opti-Face in the Qi iron. The face thickness varies across the entire iron set, with the five iron having a thicker face in the low toe section for stability. As you move into the mid and short irons, the face thickness increases towards the middle of the face. This design promotes stability and accuracy, with longer irons having a slight draw bias and shorter irons maintaining a straight bias.

Echo Dampening for Improved Sound

The Qi iron also incorporates echo dampening technology to enhance the sound and feel of the club. Despite being a cast game improvement iron, the Qi iron is engineered to sound more like a forged iron, providing golfers with a satisfying auditory experience.

The Qi HL: A Lighter Option

In addition to the Qi iron, Taylormade is also introducing the Qi HL for golfers seeking a lighter option. The Qi HL features the same head shape as the Qi iron but with a lighter head weight and two degrees weaker loft.

This variation caters to players with slower swing speeds, providing easier launch and increased distance.

Two-Year Life Cycle

One notable change for Taylormade’s game improvement irons is the introduction of a two-year life cycle, starting from 2024. This is a departure from their previous one-year life cycle practice. The Qi iron will be available for two years, allowing golfers to enjoy the benefits of this innovative club for a longer period of time.

Club Options and Loft Strength

The Qi iron is available in a range of club options, allowing golfers to customize their set according to their preferences and playing style. The longest iron in the Qi series is the four iron, while the HL model offers a five iron as the longest option.

In terms of loft strength, the Qi iron has a loft of 28 degrees for the seven iron. Additionally, Taylormade is introducing a Qi HL with a loft of 30 degrees, catering to players who require additional launch assistance. The decision to introduce the HL model reflects the understanding that different golfers have varying swing speeds and loft needs.

Steel and Graphite Options

Taylormade offers both steel and graphite shaft options for the Qi iron. The standard steel shaft is the KBS Max 85 mt, which provides a lightweight feel. For the HL iron, there will be a max light option available.

For those who prefer graphite shafts, Taylormade offers the Ventus TR Blue for the Qi iron and the Speeder NXTCS for the HL iron. These graphite options provide a lighter alternative and are designed to match the performance characteristics of the respective irons.

The Qi Iron for Everyone

The Qi iron range is not limited to a specific demographic. Both men and women can find suitable options within the Qi series. The HL model, in particular, is recommended for players with slower swing speeds, and Taylormade offers graphite shaft options and lighter head weights to optimise launch conditions.

It is certainly worth trying for yourself so be sure to book a FREE custom fitting below!

Conclusion

The new Qi iron from Taylormade is a game improvement iron that offers various advancements to enhance performance on the golf course. With its carbon construction, improved design, Opti-Face technology, and echo dampening, the Qi iron provides golfers with a powerful and satisfying experience. The introduction of the Qi HL caters to players with slower swing speeds, ensuring that everyone can benefit from Taylormade’s innovative design. With a two-year life cycle and a wide range of club options, the Qi iron is a versatile and reliable choice for golfers of all skill levels.

Callaway Apex UW

In recent years, many golfers are moving from hybrids back to tradition fairways with anything from a 5 to a 7 wood and even higher. Players are prefering to hit higher land angles to ensure the ball is stopping on the green as opposed to running on. 

The problem both hybrid and higher lofted fairway metals have is the tendency to miss left due to the higher loft on the club as well as CG mass towards the heel. 

This has left a gap in the market for a club to bridge the gap and offer the best of both worlds whilst giving more neutral flights.

Introducing the Callaway Apex UW.

Tour-Inspired Compact, Workable Shape & Optimized Length

The distinct clubhead shaping is inspired by in-depth feedback from Tour pros. They require a compact profile to enhance shot-shaping and improve control. Club lengths are set between a fairway wood and a hybrid, allowing for versatile playability while still being easy to hit.

Fast Ball Speed From Batwing Technology & an A.I. Designed C300 Face Cup
The A.I.-designed Batwing structure is pushed to the perimeter to stiffen the body, allowing the high-strength C300 maraging steel face cup to flex for fast ball speeds.

Enhanced Turf Interaction from Cutwave Pro Sole

The Apex UW is designed for versatile shot-making. An all-new Cutwave Pro Sole is a streamlined design, engineered specifically to cut through the turf more efficiently.

High Launch, Consistent Control and Tighter Dispersion

The center of gravity is precisely positioned in a neutral location for an exceptional combination of high launch, steeper landing angles, consistent spin characteristics and reduced draw bias. The Apex UW is an excellent option for better players looking for a more playable hybrid or fairway wood.

A go-to option for Tour players. The unique profile promotes the launch and distance benefits of our high lofted fairway woods, the versatility of Callaway hybrids, along with a more neutral ball flight. It’s a multi-purpose offering that better players can use with confidence off the tee into tight landing areas, out of the fairway into Par-5s, or from the rough.

Key Information:

The NEW UW will be available try in a FREE fitting from 18/08/23 with in store product release from the 08/09/23.

Scotty Cameron Champions Choice Putters 2023

The return of an icon, Scotty Cameron Champions Choice Putters 2023 are here. Learn below about the Limited Edition range from Titleist’s Scotty Cameron.

Expanding the options in Terylliuminlayed putters, Scotty Cameron has created four new
Champions Choice Button Back Plus models, each made in a limited engagement.

NEWPORT

Crafted slightly wider than a standard Newport with an I-beam style plumbing neck and Teryllium insert, its 6061 aircraft grade aluminum sole plate is engineered into the precision milled 303 stainless steel putter head for proper balance, ideal weight distribution and higher MOI.

NEWPORT 1.5

Based on the Newport Plus head shape, this model features an I-beam style jet neck for players favoring a naturally arced putting stroke. Its Teryllium inlay is fused to the 303 stainless steel putter head with vibration dampening technology and a three-button-head-screw configuration for outstanding feel and feedback.

NEWPORT 2

Designed by working with the game’s best players at Scotty’s Putter Studio, the Plus models’ wider profile was designed for players looking for a slightly bigger blade and even more confident alignment. Coupled with the feel of Teryllium, this tour proven model is a glimpse into the future of putter.

NEWPORT 2.5

Also offered in a left-handed version and based on the Newport 2 Plus head size, this model features an I-beam style jet neck for players creating a naturally arced putting stroke. Lending the Button Back style its name, three button head screws in conjunction with improved vibration dampening technology fuses the Teryllium inlay to the putter head.

LEGENDARY DESIGN
Prized by putting purists as an insert with unmistakably soft feel and a character revealed over
time in a rich patina, the incorporation of Teryllium and the celebrated Button Back design
expresses the heritage of this timehonoured putter face inlay.


MULTIMATERIAL CONSTRUCTION

With a Teryllium insert expertly designed into the 303 stainless steel putter head and integrated
with an engineered 6061 aluminium sole component, each precision milled Champions Choice
model proves that complementary materials deliver outstanding performance and feel.


MODERN VIBRATION DAMPENING

The traditional elastomer of the original Button Backs has been supplemented with the addition
of a hightech vibration dampening material placed between the Teryllium inlay and the putter
head that provides unmatched feel and feedback.
