McIlroy riding new Nike gear to late-season resurgence by Kevin Cunningham

Rory McIlroy appears to be turning his game around following a disappointing, winless season in 2013.

First there was the final-round 67 to finish T2 at the Korea Open. Then came the one-shot victory over Tiger in an exhibition match at Mission Hills in China, followed by an impressive opening-round 65 at the WGC-HSBC Champions that gave him the first-round lead.

So who or what is responsible for Rory's late-season resurgence? While no one can say for sure, two newcomers to his golf bag could have something to do with it.

LPGA Tour adds additional events.

From the AP:

NAPLES, Fla. (AP) -- The LPGA Tour continued its turnaround Friday by announcing a 2014 schedule that adds four new tournaments, doesn't have any breaks longer than two weeks off and offers average prize money of $1.75 million.

LPGA commissioner Mike Whan already met two crucial goals when he took over in 2010 at a tour in disarray. He wanted the women to have at least 30 tournaments, and he did not want the increase at the expensive of shrinking prize money.

Buyer's Guide; Golf Balls

Buying golf balls is a lot like buying a new car. First you have to decide on How Much you are willing to pay, and second you have to decide on What Type of car you need. Same for buying golf balls. Let’s start this guide with a discussion on the different types of golf balls, and go from there. Every golf ball company makes half a dozen or more models of golf balls. At the high end you have the TOUR Quality 3 or 4 piece golf balls. These balls are designed for the Tour players and lower handicap amateur golfers.

Buyer's Guide: Hybrids - Mike Shumaker

The game of golf can sometimes be a cruel game especially if you do not have the proper equipment in your bag. If those clubs are not there then don’t expect to improve. The golfer’s short game has long been an area that all players lose strokes, but there is another area that has consistently caused problems as well. Long irons and shots from the rough have caused all kinds of problems for pros and amateurs. The utility or hybrid clubs have gone a long way to correct some of these problems.

Buyer's Guide: Putters

Buying the right putter begins with an understanding of putter design. There are TWO designs you need to be aware of. One design is what is referred to as a Face Balanced putter. The other is a Toe Heavy design. One design is BETTER suited to one type of putting stroke, the other for the other type of putting stroke. YOUR job as a golfer is to figure out which type of stroke you like, and then to buy the design of putter that best works with YOUR type of stroke.

Buyer's Guide: Wedges

For this buying guide I will assume you already have a set of irons, and that set includes at least the 4 iron to Pitching Wedge. If you are looking to buy some wedges, first thing you need to do is figure out how many wedges you have room for in your bag, and exactly what you already have in the way of wedges. You’re only allowed to carry 14 clubs in your bag, so you need to count up how many you already have.

More on buying fairway woods - Don Fisher

It is my personal opinion that most golfers don’t carry enough woods in their bag. Most golfers carry a 3 and 5 wood at most and they never think about a higher lofted wood or two. If you are in the market for some fairway woods, first thing I recommend is to decide if you want LOW PROFILE or HIGH PROFILE woods. If you ONLY hit your woods off the deck, then the LOW profile woods is what you should buy. But if you like to hit your woods off the tee on tight fairway holes, then look into buying the HIGH profile woods with the taller clubface. This is the kind I always buy.

Buyers Guide: Selecting a driver - Mike Shumaker and other GGR Members

First and foremost, it is important to remember that the golf club does not make the golfer. Also, you need to know that this guide is just a guide-hopefully it will help you make the decision easier when you decide to purchase a driver. The game is simply 18 holes of challenges and opportunities-hopefully most of you golfers will be presented with more opportunities than challenges. If you have a driver in your golf bag that you have confidence in-the game becomes much more enjoyable and lots more fun.

Choosing Irons - Don Fisher

If you are in the market for a set of irons, be it your first set or one in a line of dozens, first thing you should do is decide on just how much money you are willing to spend. Might want to leave yourself a little “Wiggle Room” just in case you find a set you just can’t live without and its’ $50 more than your budget. No sense looking at those brand new $1,000 TaylorMade forged irons if your wallet says $300 is your limit. Same goes for wasting your time looking at low end $200 irons if your skill level and back account are up to some $700 clubs.

Golf Buyers Guide; Choosing Irons - Mike Shumaker

One of the most asked questions of any golfer is: What type of club should I play with? The answer to that question is both easy and sometimes very difficult to answer. Whether your name is Phil Mickleson or Joe Smith, there is a set of irons just for you. Driving the ball is a very important part of the game but there is no doubting that the most essential and basic part of any golfers game is their iron play. The type of iron in your golf bag is like bread and butter on your dinner plate.
