SO WHAT are you doing before the big game.
Because if your not at the Mistwood Golf Dome, you should be watching the PGA Tour.
Northbrook native native Nick Hardy is playing well at the Waste Management Phoenix Open. But an even par third round saw him lose some ground on the field. So while Hardy and Winfield native and Wilson Golf staffer Kevin Streelman made the cut, they could use a great final round to make a few more dollars, and Fed Ex Cup points. So let’s root them on for a fantastic finish.
The Wilson D9 driver
THE WILSON D9 is back.
Back in stock that is. Because the original supply sold-out quickly.
But the good news, is that D9 is selling well. The drivers and the irons.
The new D9 driver was created in house by the design team at Wilson. But no not as part of Driver vs Driver 3. So if you enjoyed the first two Driver vs Drive shows, you did not miss the second sequel.
