A canopy tent can play a crucial role at any sporting event. Canopy tents provide shade and temporary shelter to spectators and athletes, making watching a car race or a golf game more comfortable.

When organizing a sporting event, paying attention to every detail of the logistics is important. So when it comes to canopy tents, what exactly should you look for? Before purchasing that tent you’ve been eyeing, reevaluate these factors that make for a perfect canopy tent.

If you follow me on Twitter (@EarlTSB), you know that I am an avid golfer. As a guy who doesn’t break the bank every time a new product hits the showroom floor, I make sure that I do thorough research on what I am buying.  I want everyone to know that with the help of eBay, I received a free pair of Adidas Adipower Boost 2 golf shoes and was more than happy to play a few rounds with these bad boys to give some feedback.  All opinions in this post are my own.

Quick Review:

Looks: A-

Comfort: A+

Stability: B+

Grip: A+

LeBron
Could you imagine that the sports that you play could make you a millionaire? Sports were once something you do to relax, have a rest from a daily routine. It was never considered a serious job. Let us take a closer look at to what sports offer other than just some physical training and a break from reality.

Last week I tested out the new Callaway XR 16 driver, and this week I got to hit the new XR OS irons.  The XR OS are now available just about anywhere for $799.  The XR OS iron is the new extension off the Callaway XR line.  The XR iron was the #1 iron sold on the market last year, and Callaway is all about trying to make clubs easier to hit and go farther.  Let’s see if they have done this.

Next week, Callaway Golf will be releasing its newest driver, the XR16 on 1/29.  This driver follows up on last year’s popular XR model.  I was able to get my hands on the XR16 today, and compared it to the XR.

Under the hood of the XR was the stock Blue Project X LZ shaft, with 9 degrees of loft.  I have hit this driver A LOT, and was easily my favorite driver of 2015.  After warming up, I took 5 swings and you can see the numbers I pumped out on the left.

golf fitting

A club fitting like this one at the Taylor Made Performance Center, can do wonders for amateur golfers.

Working in the golf business, I get the same question pretty much every single day. How can I improve my game? I don’t have enough hours in the day to break down every person’s swing that I see on a daily basis, but there are a few tips on how amateur golfers can improve their game.

Be honest with yourself.

In the game of golf, there is no one else to blame but yourself. You are the singular reason for the result. You choose your equipment, you choose how to use that equipment, and you choose how to attack each shot based on the natural elements in front of you. No one is going to drop a pass, throw a ball into the stands, or call a bogus pass interference penalty.

spieth
Jordan Spieth has won the 2015 US Open after Dustin Johnson 3-putted on the 18th hole at Chambers Bay.  Both Spieth and Johnson hit amazing second shots into the par-5 18th hole.  Spieth missed his eagle try by inches and tapped in for birdie to take a one shot lead.  Johnson followed up in the next group by knocking a 5 iron from 247 yards to within 12 feet. Johnson then knocked his eagle try a good 4 feet by, and then missed the putt to tie.

Rory McIlroy won his 4th Major as he rallied to win the PGA Championship on Sunday.  He also displayed some quick hands during the trophy ceremony, as he saved the lid of the Wannamaker Trophy from falling.  Check out the GIF after the jump:

We’ve all been there before, Henrik Stenson.  Pulled our drive into the tall stuff, tried to hack it out, and then thought about snapping that 7 iron over your leg.  But, you wouldn’t actually do that…right?  Well, he did!  Just like Bo Jackson back in the day, after hitting a pretty terrible shot out of the rough on 17 at the British open, Stenson snapped his club right over his leg.

Worst golf shot ever

In today’s final round of THE PLAYERS Championship, Richard H. Lee hit the two worst shots in the history of professional golf. While on the famous island green 17th hole at TPC Sawgrass, Lee had to hit a chip shot, but the fringe was giving him trouble.

Watch what happens as Lee attempts to blade a wedge, and then his subsequent shot.
