You probably don’t have your own personal caddie to tell you the yardage for each of your shots as you move around the course – that is a luxury that is usually only enjoyed by tour pros. However, with the Voice Caddie VC300 Voice GPS, you can experience a similar service during your own rounds. This impressive new GPS device can provide you with audible yardages to the front, middle, and back of each green with just the swipe of a finger. Quick and easy to use, the Voice Caddie is an innovative way to receive the yardages that you need to hit great shots.
Most of the GPS units on the market today fall into two categories – handheld, or watches. Both of these can work nicely, and plenty of golfers are loyal to the units that they already own. The Voice Caddie VC300 falls into a new category, with a clip-on design that can be attached to a variety of places – including your hat. Since all you need to do in order to receive the yardage is swipe your finger across the surface of the device, you can place it wherever you find most convenient as you make your way around the course.
Ready to Go
With 30,000 courses already loaded onto the device, there is a great chance that your favorite courses are already included in the Voice Caddie VC300. That means all you will need to do is take it with you to the course, power it up, and get ready to tee off. It is designed to automatically recognize the course you are playing and the hole you are on, so there is nothing that you need to do in order to get started on your round. Getting your yardages should be as simple as possible, and that is the case with the VC300.
Control Your Volume
Golf is a quiet game, so anything that makes noise is going to raise some eyebrows at first. With that in mind, the VC300 comes with seven different volume levels so you can choose the setting that is just right for your needs. When playing alone, you can leave the volume as high as you like to hear the yardages nice and clear. When playing in a group, you may choose to turn it down out of respect for your playing partners. No matter what volume you choose, you will love the simplicity of having the ability to listen to your yardages from anywhere on the course with just a quick swipe of a finger.
TaylorMade Purelite Stand Bag Review

Any golfer who enjoys walking the course as opposed to riding in a cart needs a great bag to help get them from the first tee to the last green. Walking the course is a great way to get exercise, enjoy the beauty of the course, and spend time talking with your playing partners. However, if you are trying to drag around a heavy bag with uncomfortable straps, the charms of walking the course may quickly wear off. Find a great stand bag like the TaylorMade Purelite and you might find yourself choosing to use a golf cart less than ever before.
Lightweight and Comfortable
As the name would indicate, this is a lightweight carry bag that starts at just 5.5 pounds. Considering how many different items you may want to place in the bag prior to your round, having it start at a low weight is a great attribute. Also, the bag comes with a four-point strap which will allow you to find just the right position for the bag on your back so you don’t have to strain as you walk down the fairway. You want to keep your body fresh as late into the round as possible so you can keep your swing working properly – using a comfortable bag with a great strap is a step in that direction.
Plenty of Pockets
The TaylorMade Purelite includes seven pockets where you can hide golf balls, gloves, towels, snacks, or just about anything else you may need during your round of golf. Also included is an insulated cooler sleeve, as well as a removable ball pocket. While it is a bag that is meant for carrying around your favorite course, the base of the bag is also suitable for being placed on a cart for those rounds when you would rather ride.
Keep the Legs Under Control
If there is one complaint that comes up more than all others with regard to carry bags it is that the legs will split too far apart from time to time. TaylorMade has solved that issue in the Purelite, however, by adding an anti-split system which is designed to prevent the legs from getting too wide as you set it down. Another feature that is helpful when setting the bag down, or moving it from place to place, is the molded handle that is placed at the top of the bag. If you don’t need to put the bag on your shoulders for a long walk, simply pick it up by the handle and move it to where it is needed. Convenience, comfort, and function are all words that accurately describe the TaylorMade Purelite Stand Bag.

There are plenty of companies making quality golf shoes in today’s market, but ECCO just might be doing it as well as anyone. The ECCO brand has long held the respect of many golfers for their durable, comfortable, and great looking golf shoes. If you are a player who likes to be comfortable on the course while looking good at the same time, investing in a pair of ECCO’s is something you should strongly consider.
Comfort First and Foremost
Rounds of golf routinely take four hours to complete, if not longer. With that in mind, you want to be in comfortable shoes whether you are riding or walking the course. The ECCO Men’s BIOM G2 is designed with comfort in mind, including a number of features which help the shoe feel great around your foot. Also, the shoe is 20% lighter than the previous version of the BIOM, meaning that you will be carrying less weight around the course with you as the round wears on. The comfort of a shoe is a highly personal decision, so make sure to try on the BIOM G2 for yourself before deciding if it is the right option for you.
Keep the Water Out
Unless you play golf only under perfect conditions, your feet are bound to get wet from time to time. When you head out onto the course in the rain, it is a great benefit to have waterproof shoes to keep your feet as dry as possible throughout the round. The ECCO BIOM G2 shoes deliver on this point as well. With their HYDROMAX treatment, you can expect the water to stay out of your shoes even in lousy conditions. Not only is it uncomfortable to play golf with wet feet for hours on end, it can also affect your performance. By using the BIOM G2 to keep your feet dry you can improve both your enjoyment of the game and your scores at the same time.
Invest in Quality
There is no question that the ECCO brand of golf shoes can come along with a hefty price tag – but quality rarely comes cheap. Beyond all of the practical features that they include, the BIOM G2 is also offered in six different colors so you can choose the look that is right for your own personal style. If you wish to own a high-quality pair of shoes that will allow your feet to be both dry and comfortable on the course, this is a pair that is certainly worthy of consideration.
