Love and Couples Welcome Nick Price as Newest Member of Bridgestone Golf Captains' Club

Bridgestone Golf Tour Team Members Set To Captain Golf’s Marquee Team Events in 2012-13

COVINGTON, GEORGIA – Bridgestone Golf, the #1 ball-fitter in golf, is proud to congratulate Fred Couples and Nick Price on their official selections as 2013 Presidents Cup American and International team captains, respectively. Captain Couples will attempt to lead his 3rd straight U.S. squad to victory in the prestigious event. For 2013 International captain, Nick Price, the 2013 Presidents Cup will provide his first opportunity to lead an international team.

The 2013 Presidents Cup will take place on the venerable Muirfiled Village Golf Club in Dublin, Ohio September 30th – October 6th of next year. Couples and Price shared the distinction of two of the best players in the world during the nineties, with a combined career total of 33 PGA TOUR victories, including 4 major championships, between them. With his selection, Price now has the distinction of being the captain with the most Presidents Cup experience, having played for the International team a total of five times (1994, 1996, 1998, 2000 and 2003). Couples played in four President Cups as a member of the United States team (1994, 1996, 1998 and 2005). Couples compiled a 9-5-2 record in his Presidents Cup career, compared to Price’s 8-11-4. Presently, Couples and Price both rely on the 2012 Bridgestone Tour B330 golf ball as they continue to add chapters to their storybook careers on the Champions Tour.

The announcement of Couples and Price as Presidents Cup captains in 2013 gives Bridgestone Golf the honor of claiming 3 out of 4 skippers in golf’s marquee team events over the next 18 months, with Davis Love III preparing to lead the U.S. team at this September’s 2012 Ryder Cup Matches at Medinah.

“Team Bridgestone members are captaining golf’s biggest team events and winning some of the sport’s biggest individual championships, so we could not be more proud of our tour team than we are right now,” said Dan Murphy, Vice President of Marketing – Bridgestone Golf, Inc. “Like the rest of the golf world, we look forward to seeing the creative ideas Davis, Fred and Nick have for inspiring their teams.”

Enhanced Ergonomics help PING’s Hoofer bag win “Hot List” Gold

PHOENIX (May 8, 2012) – PING’s Hoofer® carry bag has won Gold on the 2012 Golf Digest “Hot List” ranking of the industry’s highest-performing products. The results are published in the June issue of the magazine.

In recognizing the Hoofer, editors singled out its dual sliding shoulder pads and innovative strap slider, which provides a backpack-style fit and makes the bag easy to slide on and off. These features are part of PING’s Enhanced Ergonomics (E2®), which includes a leg-retention strap that keeps the legs snug while walking. A reinforced bracket with leg stops ensures stable, secure leg extension on all surfaces. At approximately 5 pounds, the Hoofer has a roomy five-way, reinforced top to make club removal and replacement easy. Eight pockets include those for valuables, a range-finder, and apparel.

“The Hoofer is a wonderful example of how E2 has enabled us to advance comfort, adjustability and durability while ensuring that our bags can be fit to any player’s body type and carrying style,” said John A. Solheim, PING Chairman & CEO. “At PING, our emphasis on innovation, performance and custom-fitting extends well beyond golf clubs. The Hoofer winning ‘Hot List’ Gold is further validation of our efforts to make sure every product carrying the PING name is the highest quality.”

Of the 65 bags tested, only eight were awarded Gold. Including the Silvers given to its 4 Series® and Pioneer® bags, PING tied for the most awards.

Dave Stockton “The Pro Tours’ Hottest Coach” scheduled to appear at Roger Dunn Golf Shops Santa Ana Superstore on Thursday, March 15th

Dave Stockton “The Pro Tours’ Hottest Coach” scheduled to appear at Roger Dunn Golf Shops Santa Ana Superstore on Thursday, March 15th

REDLANDS, CA. – Stockton Golf (www.DaveStockton.com) announced today that Dave Stockton Sr. will be revealing the “Secret” that has helped Tour Players reach the winners circle over 60 times in the past 2 years and signing copies of his Best Selling Book, Unconscious Putting, from 6 to 8 pm at the Roger Dunn Golf Shops Santa Ana Superstore on Thursday, March 15th.  Dave will be conducting a Short Game Clinic followed by a Q&A session and book signing.

 

Simplify your routine with help from golf’s first family of putting: Dave Stockton Sr. and his sons, Dave Stockton Jr. and Ron Stockton. Dave Stockton Sr. is a five-time Major Championship Winner and victorious Ryder Cup Captain. Together they’ve taught more than 50 players on the world tours, and helped thousands of amateurs in clinics around the world, and now, they’re ready to help you.

 

With “Unconscious Putting” you’ll learn how to:

 

  • Roll your ball using your own natural putting signature, not by copying one that doesn’t fit, or following a checklist of mechanical thoughts.
  • Improve your mental game and discover that putting is an art that you can master.
  • Reconnect with your instincts to see the line more clearly and get a better feel for distance.

Find out from the Pros themselves why Dave is called “The Pro Tours’ Hottest Coach” and why so many of them rely upon his Signature Approach to create wins on Sunday afternoon.

“Dave’s focus on key fundamentals has helped me tremendously. Working with Dave and some hard work took me from a two win season in ’99 to 17 wins and counting in the next 2 ½ year period. Thanks Dave.”- Annika Sorenstam

“Dave Stockton has a great putting touch and the confidence that stems from it. What I like most about his method is his rhythm; whether it’s a two-footer or a fifty-footer, his rhythm never changes. That’s the key to great putting.” – Lee Trevino

“There are and have been other great putters besides Dave Stockton, but none are able to articulate their methods as clearly as Dave can.” – Mark McCumber

“Dave Stockton has always been, and stills remains, one of the best putters in the game of golf. Aside from his marvelous technique and style, the single thing that has impressed me most about his putting is the speed at which the ball travels from the putter head.” – Tom Weiskopf

Meet Jim Flick at Roger Dunn Golf Shops – West LA

Flick

Meet Jim Flick at our West Los Angeles Roger Dunn Store, 1801 So. Bundy Drive, LA 90025 on Wednesday, February 15, 2012 from 5 – 7 pm PT.

ABOUT JIM FLICK
Some people are natural-born teachers, and Jim Flick is certainly one of them. He has spent a lifetime dedicated to helping golfers become better players – from novices to some of the greatest champions of our time. Jim has been motivated and driven by his enthusiasm and love for the game of golf. His 31 years of experience with over 200 touring professionals has earned him the uncontested title of America’s Master Golf Teacher.

Jim feels that the teaching of golf has become much too complex and mechanical. The resulting confusion and tension lead to the deterioration of the player’s athleticism and ability to score. He also knows that golfers want help on a more personal basis, more short game training and more time on the golf course. While there are many ways to teach and play, time has shown that simplicity is best for most. Jim believes that the true art of teaching golf is in helping each student to better understand their challenges and to become their own coach thereby enabling the self-confidence and self-reliance to continue learning and improving long after the formal lessons.

Golf is a game of constantly making adjustments which requires a deep understanding of tendencies and habits. Even the best of players need another set of eyes from time to time. Jim provides that invaluable extra set of eyes through customized group instruction, individual instruction and corporate golf outings.
TEACHING BACKGROUND OF 50 YEARS:
• Club professional, 1954-1974
• Golf Digest Schools, 1972-1990
• Director of Instruction, 1976-1990
• Co-Founder Nicklaus/Flick Schools, 1991-2001
• Jim Flick Premier Schools, 2002
