FOOTJOY_GTEXTREMEThe proper grip has a major impact on the golf swing and having the right golf glove can dynamically contribute to the effort. A golf glove that doesn’t fit properly or doesn’t perform well under varied conditions could actually be a detriment to your golf game.

To help golfers establish a solid grip in all conditions, FootJoy recently introduced GTxtreme, which the company said represents the ultimate in golf grip technology to help maximize grip and durability in all conditions on the golf course.

2012 Masters Champion Bubba Waston first used the FootJoy GTxtreme golf glove at The Open Championship in July at Royal Lytham & St. Annes Golf Course in Lancashire, England. According to FootJoy, Watson wore the glove during every round of the Open Championship and every round he’s played since.

Bubba Watson Donates $50,000 to Caddy For A Cure

BUBBAIt took a little longer than most golf experts predicted, but since Bubba Watson earned his first victory last month on the PGA Tour, he’s been making the most of it. A year after pledging to donate $50,000 to Caddy For A Cure, Inc. Bubba has honored his word.

Caddy For A Cure is a program that offers an auction-style charity format to caddy for the world’s best golfers. Said Watson”I don’t like people caddying for me, but I told Russ at Caddy For a Cure, that if I ever won on TOUR, I would announce on national television that I am donating $50,000 to CFAC.”

“Our program offers golf fans opportunities with the best players in the world and Bubba definitely fits into that group,” said Russ Holden, Caddy For A Cure Founder, CEO and former PGA TOUR caddie. “Although someone didn’t get the opportunity to spend a day with Bubba inside the ropes as a caddie, everyone can get a feel for what a great guy he is, not only as a golfer, but through his integrity and commitment to help others.” he continued, “The timing of Bubba’s donation is perfect for supporting research into Fanconi anemia and its high connection with cancer, particularly given the issues Bubba’s family is facing with his father. Advances have been made in developing therapeutics for treating Fanconi anemia that show significant hope for potentially preventing cancer. We are truly grateful for the help from all players in supporting our cause, but Bubba Watson has taught us all a lesson in gratitude.”

Caddy For A Cure offers its caddie experiences from its website, www.caddyforacure.com, with auctions for each player. 100% of auction proceeds go to charity and caddie participation is fully tax deductible as allowed by law.
