By now, many of you have heard or even played the Volvik Golf Balls. But do you know the story behind this incredible golf company. Little do you know, this golf company changed the game of golf forever introducing colored golf balls. Since their launch of the colored golf ball, they have been a leader in the golf ball market and don’t plan to leave anytime soon. In the present, they have created an empire offering Speacial packs (graphic golf balls), Standard packs (regular, matted golf balls) and now the Tour packs (to compete with the tour level golf ball).

On many levels, Volvik has passed some of the bigger OEM’s in golf. Being the title sponsor of the Long Drive Tour, their hype around how far these balls go (and they are USGA approved) has grown even more. They also have players playing the Tour S3 and S4, as well as some colored golf balls,  on the PGA and LPGA tours. Here is the story of the Volvik Golf Balls through our lense.

Correct Golf Ball Compression to Maximize Distance

Correct Golf Ball Compression to Maximize Distance


Here’s a product feature on a new golf ball compression testing device.  Knowing the compression of the golf ball you are playing is key to your success.  If you play too soft a ball for your swing speed then you will cheat yourself on distance.  If you play too hard of a ball for your swing speed, again you will lose distance and control.  Finding a ball you can compress and control is very important and that is where the ProCheck helps.  With this simple tool you can check any golf ball, new or used, to identify if it is right for you.

Here is a quote from Callaway Golf about this concept:

“Callaway has long understood that compression plays a key role in optimizing the performance and consistency of golfers. We at Callaway have tested the Procheck golf ball compression tester and found it to be an excellent tool for the consumer. It’s readings can help golfers determine the right ball for their game.”

– Jason Finley, Director, Brand Management, Callaway Golf



Find your average driver distance.  here are the steps:

  1.  Find your swing speed.
  2.  Find the right compression.
  3.  Use the ProCheck® device to test the balls that are right for you.


You could increase distance by 10-20 Yards right away – visit www.procheckgolf.com

It is understood that a golfer will achieve their most energy transfer and more driving distance if the hardness of the ball is matched to the swing speed of their club. If you have a slower swing speed (60-70 mph) you should play a softer golf ball.  If you have a fast swing speed (100-110 mph) then you should play a firmer golf ball. Matching swing speed with ball compression helps to hit the ball with the correct degree of flattening at impact with creates a trampoline-like energy transfer.  With ProCheck – you can find your optimal ball so get started testing your golf balls today at www.procheckgolf.com

ALINE Performance Insoles

ALINE Performance Insoles

ALINE Performance Insoles

I’m a sucker for a good golf gimmick, and I’ve tried just about everything to help my game. When I got the chance to review a set of “golf performance insoles” from ALINE, I knew I had to see what it was all about.

ALINE is a company that makes multiple types of insoles for everything from daily wear, to cycling and golf. I’m unclear on the differences between them, but this review is specifically for the Golf model. The first thing I noticed after taking them out of the bag is that they are much more rigid than I anticipated. They look very nice and are made of quality materials. Now for the real test, how did they perform?

It’s really important to follow the directions with these rigid insoles, because your feet will take some time to conform to the new shape. If you don’t, you’ll probably have a pretty bad experience. I broke mine in over the course of a week, wearing them an hour longer each day until they discomfort faded. The insoles feel quite odd at first. There is a pronounced bump in the middle of the insole and noticeable arch support, that really feels unnatural. Once the break-in process is complete, this feeling goes away and it’s actually going back to standard insoles that feels strange.

ALINE Performance Insoles

I wore these in my work boots full time and would transfer them to my golf shoes on the weekends. Let me get this part out of the way; the ALINEs did not directly help my golf game one bit. Having said that, they are a quality product that will get a recommendation from me. Once I became used to my new foot position, they helped my back and hip pain, my balance and my foot pain and fatigue. I could walk 18 holes without issue and more importantly, I could work my physically demanding job without the pain that used to plague me.

For the price point, you can’t do much better in terms of comfort and possible pain relief. I’m still wearing these insoles every day, over 3 months after I first received them. I don’t often gush over products, but these have made a world of difference for me, even if I’ve played some of the worst golf of my life in them.

ALINE Golf insoles retail for $69.95 and can be purchased directly from ALINE at www.aline.com
